Russian interest in damaging the United States through supporting secession and insurrection continues

The following link is to an article about the militia occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and is obviously sympathetic to the militia. It is a Russian news outlet.

I also find again my blog has heavy Russian readership, greater than the American readership. (See screen capture from this morning of Google statistics of my readership at the bottom of this blog post.)

This is not the first time I have had a surge of interest in my blog from Russia

Movements can be aided in many ways besides money and materials. Often a movement most needs prestige to recruit members and gain credibility with the larger public. The League of the South has been getting just such type of support from the Russians.

This blog posting refers to an article in The New York Review of Books explaining how Putin is using the media to undermine the West.

I think that it is clear that the Russian government is eager to back any insurrection or secession movement as a counter measure to the United States.

I am sure the Russians have concluded that the League of the South is of little significance, but I think they are hedging their bets. Movements can suddenly  grow. Though I think that if there is a significant  Southern nationalist movement the League of the South won't be leading it.

It is understandable that people react with amusement and laughter to these groups, but it should be understood also that there are powers out there with great resources very interested in these groups These hostile powers prowl and sniff seeking opportunity seeking opportunities to injure the United States.
