UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Hardly had Julian Assange been arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, when the authorities of that South American country were shouting at the “Russian hackers”, who are in cahoots with WikiLeaks to “destabilize the country”. Does the Kremlin Hand already work against Ecuador?

Whether the facts take place in London or Ecuador, all roads lead to Moscow. Julian Assange, arrested Thursday at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, was linked to Russian hackers, say the authorities of the South American country.

In the wake, they accused “the support of WikiLeaks and two Russian hackers for trying to destabilize the country,” reports Associated Press.

Thorn in the foot of the United States, Julian Assange had been in the US for years. The revelations of the CIA spy programs, Hillary Clinton’s emails made public during the election campaign, secret US Army documents … Washington has been far from forgiving these blows in the name of freedom of the press.

As the whistleblower published his revelations, the CIA, unable to reach him at the Ecuadorian embassy, ​​changed tactics, striving to discredit the information broadcast by WikiLeaks, and then introduce Julian Assange. as a “Kremlin agent”.

But if the previous Ecuadorian government remained firm against Washington’s pressure, the socialist Lenin Moreno, who came to power in 2017, bowed to Uncle Sam. Even more: in the best American traditions, he went to find in the case the Kremlin Hand. Like what, would it be impossible to imagine a person acting freely to denounce the conspiracies and espionage of the US authorities?
