On Wednesday, American protesters successfully stormed the Capitol. The building was captured for the first time in 200 years: the last time this happened in 1814.
After the crowd of demonstrators was dispersed and the situation was settled, the American authorities sang the old song about the main thing again. Traditionally, the “hand of the Kremlin” has been discerned in what happened.
Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi said that President of the United States Donald Trump made another gift to the head of the Russian state, Vladimir Putin, by staging the capture of the Capitol. In addition, Pelosi called Trump the “instrument” of the Russian president.
A spokeswoman for the US Democratic Party believes that the events in Washington were orchestrated by the Kremlin to undermine the reputation of democracy in the world. And Donald Trump has long been an aide to Putin.
Recall that on Wednesday, the head of the White House called on his supporters to march to the US Capitol – the seat of the American Congress in Washington. However, the situation got out of the control of the Republican: demonstrators stormed the building and prevented parliamentarians from completing the procedure for confirming Democrat Joe Biden as the new president of the United States. Law enforcement officers used tear gas, flash bangs and other weapons to force out the protesters. As a result of clashes between law enforcement officers and demonstrators, at least five people were killed, including a police officer.
