The pro-Western premier, who was reelected, supports joining the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. He defeated a coalition of pro-Russian parties.
Russian Federation, led by a Communist dictator,
Vladimir, Putin, has actively been interfering in elections throughout Europe
to undermine N.A.T.O. and the European Union, in order to reconstitute the Soviet Union and capture former Eastern European
satellites into its orbit. The Russian Federation has spread its propaganda to
Europe and the United States
and backed far-right nationalist parties, even in Western
Europe, as Putin, a former Soviet intelligence officer, has
pretended to be a champion of nationalism.
The Russia Federation has even interfered in the American presidential election, through Internet hacking, propaganda and disinformation. The unprecedented foreign interference into the elections in the
U.S. appears to have been
successful in electing a majority of Republican Electors, although the election
results have not been certified. Their
party’s pro-authoritarian presidential nominee, who is backed significantly by
far-right nationalists, is favorable to Putin, including acquiescing to Russian
aggression in Ukraine and supporting Russian war crimes committed in Syria to
back the terrorist-sponsoring Russian-allied Bashar Assad regime.
Putin used democratic elections to be elected Prime Minister and later President of the
Russian Federation, after which he implemented
authoritarianism to guarantee he would remain in power, with only a democratic
pretense of free and fair elections, after a crackdown on dissent and the
independence of the judiciary. He has
been attempting similarly to use democratic elections to undermine liberty
abroad and, as in the case of Montenegro,
like his invasions of Georgia
the Russian dictator is willing to use force to achieve his dream of restoring
the Communist Soviet Empire.
It is vital to resist Putin, as well as to be vigilant against the loss of representative government to authoritarianism through the election of those who would be autocrats.
