It took the Russians too long to defend themselves from Washington's Fifth Column NGOs, but finally they understood that these US-financed operatives were a dagger at Russia's heart.
Russian prosecutors have banned them.
No one will give me credit for this, so I will claim it for myself. I wrote many columns about the Russian government's insouciant toleration of Washington's Fifth Columns operating against them. And some of these Fifth Columns are still present in the Russian media and in the neoliberal central bank.
One day, perhaps, the Russian government will come to its full senses.
