In 1996, not only did the Clinton team influence Russia's election to Boris Yeltsin (who collapsed their economy and made the life expectancy go down by 5 years), they bragged about it in Time Magazine.

Boris Yeltsin apparently was so bad at handling things, he could not pay government workers.
Sounds familiar.
If Russia had an electoral college, Boris Yeltsin would have lost a rigged election.
Unlimited polling budget and focus groups caused Boris to barely win.

But remember kids, very bad Facebook memes swung the election for Trump
Infiltrators went in posing that they were flat-screen tv dealers
"They were worried about civil war"

I wonder who was going to start it 🤔🤔
They even staged am event to make it seem like Yeltsin was standing upto Clinton and the Americans
On a side note, this sounds positively Trumpian.
Yeltsin almost got himself shot because he wanted Pizza.
In 1995, in a stage of drunken stupor, Yeltsin calls the press "a disaster" and Clinton laughing along with him.

Bill and Hillary drinking Coke in Moscow in 1995.

(Symbolically giving Russia a big F. U.)
How bad was Yeltsin?

Look at how his own Press Secretary's analysis.

Remember, this guy's job is to do PR for Yeltsin and/or make him look good in the media.
1995: Yeltsin is getting drunk with Clinton.
You can always count on our own propaganda news to promote bigotry.

Myth: "They hate us for our Freedom"

Truth: "Democracy" is code for "privatization of state assets, removing price controls and increasing income inequality." aka Crony capitalism on steroids.
The Tsars took out large debts from private bankers in France to fund their army. When the Bolsheviks came to power, they cancelled those debts. In 1997, President Boris Yeltsin agreed to payback the French private bankers' 'compensation' for supporting a brutal Tsar.
Even after forcing austerity on Russia to make them pay Tsar debts, the French government under @EmmanuelMacron is still not satisfied. Apparently, they want Russia to pay back another 400,000 outstanding bonds.

1991: Boris Yeltsin addresses congress. The ghouls we call our representatives are wildly happy. It should have been a red flag to all of us.

It gets worse! I would like to thank @MarkAmesExiled for this amazing research on the 1996 election.

70% of Chechnya magically voted for the man nicknamed "Butcher of Chechnya"
...

Even though... there were more votes than eligible voting adults!
