May 5–9, 2018: 8,000 people in Russian military uniform marched in 20 US cities. A Russian tank in Ohio; the hammer and sickle in front of the White House. The US Senators approve it. The Kremlin funds it. 👇Thread on #HybridWar. @J_amesp @profcarroll @carolecadwalla @ushadrons
1. The #ImmortalRegiment is a grassroots initiative of Russian people hijacked by the Kremlin to carry out a hybrid war operation in 50 countries. It is supported by the federal agencies and an organization funded by the Kremlin. Russian embassies help to organize these events.
2. On the orders of the Russian Ministry of the Foreign Affairs, immigrants from the former USSR and Russians living abroad carry out the “Immortal Regiment” to promote Russian militarism and nationalism and the idea of an authoritarian leader amongst Russian diaspora.
3. Propagandists use mass events to exploit the tragedy suffered by the USSR population in WWII, the loss of 26,000,000 lives and anti-Nazi sentiment to provoke sympathy in the West.
4. WHITE HOUSE. 700+ in Russian military uniform gather in front of the White House, with a Russian Ambassador to the United States in attendance. OHIO. A Russian tank T-34 takes part in the re-enactment of the Stalingrad battle in Ohio.
5. NY. A plane flies a 98 feet ribbon symbolizing Russian military power along the Hudson and around the Statue of Liberty. About 6,000 participants march along the Hudson. 2,000 eco-friendly white balloons are released into the sky. 1,900 signs are pre-fabricated.
6. In 2017, after the NY march, a party with shooting, vodka, bombs and machine guns, prayer and fireworks took place at the Church of All Saints, in Pine Bush, NY, at the estate purchased with the money donated by the Moscow Patriarchate and owned by the Russian Orthodox Church.
7. 💥💥💥On May 5, the Senate of the State of New York adopted a resolution on the action “Immortal Regiment.” Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda, a key sponsor to the Russian American History Month and Immortal Regiment resolutionS, was recently elected to the Senate of NY State.
8. Sepulveda and 25 members of the Legislative Assembly of the State of New York went on a trip to Russia in 2017. The trip was arranged by Sepulveda's chief of staff Anton Konev, an active participant of the Russian government-sponsored forums, conferences and events...
9.... and Olga Zatsepina, a Vice President of KSORS (the Coordinational Council of Compatriots in the USA, the organization co-running the “Immortal Regiment. Below with former Russian Ambassador Kislyak
10. Zatsepina is also the head of the cultural center “Heritage” that works in the USA with the support of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Rossotrudnichestvo, the Consulate General and the Embassy of the Russian Federation, the Russkiy Mir Foundation...
11. and is sponsored by the Administration of the President of Russian Federation. The state authorities of New York had excused “Heritage” — a receiver of grants from the Russian government — from paying taxes.
12. Igor Kochan, the President of the “Russian Youth of America,”a co-sponsor of the “Immortal Regiment” and a representative of KSORSofficially thanked Anton Konev for “squeezing in” the resolution in such a short term.
13. n his FB photo album “New York Legislators visit Moscow,” Anton Konev shared photos of his Moscow stay at the National Hotel, next to the Kremlin, (Junior Suite rates start at $400/night, with the Kremlin and the Presidential suite rates going up to $700 and $900/night.)
14. The legislators enjoyed a dinner at the White Rabbit, known for its exuberant prices. Senators also enjoyed fine dining and sightseeing in Kazan.
15. Want to know more? About 130 million dollars a year the Kremlin pays for events like this? About #MichaelCohen Prague meeting and how it is connected to all this? About the military camps run in the US by the Russian Orthodox Church? Read it all here:…

17. ...language and literature but people who went to the same school and took the same course throughout the last forty years - Putin, Medvedev, Sechin, Kisyelev, Olgino trolls, RT journalists and many more-are using the knowledge of psychology, neurolinguistics...
18...., brain manipulation, cultural studies, history and politics as well as millions of dollars to "demoralize the army and population of the enemy." The enemy is Western liberal democracies. The EU and US - you. And if you don't listen now - well, American soldier, surrender.
