Methods of conquest range from overt or covert military confrontation to coup d’état by agents within the target government who intentionally lower standards of living to create the cover for a “color revolution”.
An assessment of the methods, corresponding counter-measures, and situation facing Russia in June 2015 is given by Evgeny Fedorov, Deputy of the State Duma and the coordinator of the National Liberation Movement for restoring sovereignty of Russia.
The American military machine is theater intended to effect orange invasions. Their mission (the American forces’) is not armed clashes with the enemy. Their mission is to be a demonstration for their own gangsters – from ISIS, from Al-Qaïda, Mojahedin and so on – that they are protected, that their leaders and aircraft, if necessary, can fly off to Washington. It’s giving them a kind of cover. Then they have air-strikes, missile strikes, and the navy, i.e. cover for the actions of the irregular invasion force, which is not them – not the Americans.
There have been purges: good people have been driven out; bad people have been appointed to the positions of ministers and bosses. The Americans have been conducting purges and they continue to do so now. We are particularly monitoring certain bench-mark indicators. For example – Ekaterinburg. The leadership of the educational institutions there is being purged. They are being purged in favor of people who will support a Maidan. Educational institutions are combat divisions of a Maidan. This is an important element, as the Americans view it.
