Ossified Kremlin Misreads Biden Visit to Georgia and Ukraine: Yezhednevniy Zhurnal, Russia

Once again it’s nice to report that the free press in Russia is still alive and kicking. Days ago the Yezhednevniy Zhurnal, one of Russia’s boldest opposition newspapers, published this broadside against Russia’s ‘self-decieving, self-deluded’ official media and the Kremlin for how they continue to interpret the world.

This article examines the visit of Vice President Biden to Ukraine and Georgia, deriding the Kremlin for thinking he came to ‘remove,’ ‘dismiss’ or ‘fire’ the leaders of the two ‘color revolution’ countries, when in fact, according to the Yezhednevniy Zhurnal‘s Matvei Ganapolskiy, he was there to encourage something Moscow knows little about: strengthening democracy and civil society.

For Yezhednevniy Zhurnal, Matvei Ganapolskiy writes in part:

“On the topic of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Ukraine and Georgia, most analysts in Russia’s official media claim that what’s referred to ironically as the ‘Washington Province Party Committee,’ plans to remove the Ukrainian president, as well as the Georgian one, from their posts. It is said that they have failed to live up to the confidence placed in them.

[Editor’s Note: The ‘Washington Obkom,’ which translates as the “Washington Province Party Committee,” is a conspiratorial Russian expression that refers to a supranational group that secretly rules Russia and the post-Soviet States from Washington – with the help of unnamed Russian elites].

“Is it possible to find any hint of Biden ‘firing’ the presidents of Ukraine and Georgia on his visit? Of course yes – but only under certain conditions. And those conditions entail bathing in one’s own delirium.”

Russia – Yezhednevniy Zhurnal – Original Article (Russian)

On the topic of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Ukraine and Georgia, most analysts in Russia’s official media claim that what’s referred to ironically as the “Washington Province Party Committee,” plans to remove the Ukrainian president, as well as the Georgian one, from their posts. They have failed to live up to the confidence placed in them.

[Editor’s Note: The “Washington Obkom,” which translates as the “Washington Province Party Committee,” is a conspiratorial Russian expression that refers to a supranational group that secretly rules Russia and the post-Soviet States from Washington – with the help of unnamed Russian elites].

Of course, there’s reason for this. Everyone quoted Vice President Biden’s national security advisor, Tony Blinken: “Our hope is that these leaders who really, many of whom were part of inspiring not only their own people, but the entire region – the entire world – not so very long ago, will, in their day-in and day-out action, live up to the promise of the revolution and make the hard choices and work together.”

    I think the word you’re looking for is “paranoid”.

    Russia and the US used to be allies. I’d like to see a return to that condition again. Just imagine.
