A pro-Russia bloc is forming in Europe, while State Department color revolutions, destabilization, and coup attempts continue:
The Coup Factory (National Endowment for Democracy, National Democratic Institute, Brzezinski, Nuland, Soros, and friends) has been hard at work undermining the governments of any countries that get too close to Russia. One recent example is Macedonia, where Soros-man Zoran Zaev attempted (and failed) to stage a coup against Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski.
See the previous blog post on the topic:
Nuland attempts Kiev Version 2.0 in Skopje, by Wayne Madsen:
Victoria Nuland, the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, recently attempted a Kiev-style putsch in Macedonia aimed at overthrowing that nation’s democratically-elected government of Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski.
Nuland has been charged by Macedonian intelligence with conspiring with Zaev of the Macedonian Social Democratic Union of Macedonia (SDSM)…
Gruevksi, unlike many U.S.-installed and -influenced governments of the region has been reluctant to apply sanctions against Russia over Ukraine.
The coup attempt against the pro-Russia leader of Macedonia may have something to do with the planned Russian gas pipeline through Macedonia.
Balkans and Geography of Turkish Stream:
Russia’s Stroytransgaz has announced that it will build a gas pipeline across (FYR) Macedonia, which could eventually be used as part of a route to supply Europe with Russian gas via Turkey. Macedonia will have its own source of energy. Today the country has energy dependence indicator of 47, 9 percent – the second largest after Croatia (52%). The importance of the pipeline going across Macedonia is immense. It will become the key component of all-Balkans energy system linked to the Russia-Turkey joint Turkish Stream project on the construction of gas route leading to Central and South Europe.

Macedonia has also been reluctant to join the EU sanctions against Russia.

The US State Department has also been busy in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia:
Nuland travelled to three countries that border Russia as a poke in the nose at Vladimir Putin and Russia, this is no secret. While BBC and other mainstream media make a big deal our of Russian bombers flying about, the United States is engaged in straight up destabilizing the borderlands surrounding Russia.
Nuland In Azerbaijan At Start Of Caucasus Tour:
In the Armenian capital, Nuland will also discuss strengthening U.S.-Armenian ties and advancing a settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Before visiting Yerevan, Nuland will travel on February 17 to Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, where she is expected to discuss Georgia’s path toward European integration and the country’s efforts to defend its territorial integrity and sovereignty.
Nuland reads from the Euromaidan playbook as she talks about EU integration, territorial integrity and sovereignty. “Territorial integrity and sovereignty” apparently only count when they work against Russian interests.
The United States – Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce Honorary Council of Advisors has “color revolution” written all over it! Look at some of the members: James A. Baker III, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Brent Scowcroft, and Henry Kissinger.
Azerbaijan, sharing as it does borders with both Iran and Russia, must be one of the grand prizes in this Brzezinski Plan game of Eurasian chess!
Russian lawmaker lauds victory of pro-Russia candidate in Moldova election:
The members of Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, on Monday welcomed the victory of independent candidate Irina Vlah in the election of the head of Gagauzia, an autonomous region in Moldova.
According to preliminary data, Vlah gained more than 51% of the vote in the first round of election on Sunday. Under Moldova’s law, the head of Gagauzia becomes a member of the country’s government.
“We can only welcome this choice of the Gagauz people,” said Leonid Slutsky, who chairs the State Duma’s committee on the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) affairs.
Vlah’s victory means that the Gagauzia autonomous region will continue its path towards the Eurasian integration and cooperation with Russia, the lawmaker said.
