All methods the West uses to organize coups are outdated, he said. “There is nothing new. Only the methods have been upgraded depending on who is in power, people’s support and what tools he has”.
The political analyst also called the post-Soviet countries where the situation will worsen throughout the year. He predicted that the situation in Armenia will start deteriorating this year. Such difficulties are also expected in Tajikistan and Kazakhstan.
L. Savin urged the official bodies to pay attention to the work of diplomatic missions, especially the activity of the U.S. Embassy.
He also accused the OSCE’s humanitarian wing of aiming to escalate tension in society: “Other international NGOs too could “contribute” to escalating tension. Hence, they need to be censored. Consolidation between civic society and government authorities is needed to prevent possible conflict from emerging”.
Konstantin Sokolov, Vice-President of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, too thinks Russia is the main target of the West: “The main blow is undoubtedly aimed at Russia, not neighbor countries. The year 2014 came with a blow to Russia, which plays a central part in geo-policy. We all see what’s happening in Russia. It’s no secret that the current financial crisis is artificial one”.
According to K. Sokolov, the situation in Central Asian countries in 2015 may be unstable: “But that is only needed for the waive of instability to reach Russia. This is not the primary objective”.
The politician also called on the government to take some action to reduce social tension.
