The American government confirmed the accusations of Western Nationalists since "Russian" Revolution of 1917 that Western Democrats and Liberals had been supporting Russian ruling thugs, first open Communists and now closet Communists in person of KGB men, with money because they are also Democrats.
Democracy is united and indivisible, and Democrats always help each other.
All "confrontations" and mutual verbal curses between Russians and Americans are nothing but a hoax to deceive Gentile hicks.
As it turned out, the Russia's ruling KGB party is funded by the US Agency for International Development.
United Russia, the party most closely associated with illegal Russian president Putin, got money also from USAID-funded programs of the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI).
"Our understanding is that United Russia has participated in some of IRI and NDI's programs over the years," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland confirmed. "IRI and NDI offer these programs to any party in Russia that wants to take advantage of it."
The party's members have also directly accepted US funds, says a veteran opposition leader.
Boris Nemtsov today published a list of several instances over the last six years in which party members received US funds, primarily to attend IRI training sessions. In May 2010, he writes on his blog, IRI paid for United Russia youth leader Yulia Yakovenko's flight and hotel accommodation when she attended a training program for women political leaders.
"For years the Party of Crooks and Thieves has with pleasure partnered with the Americans," Nemtsov writes.
"Our understanding is that United Russia has participated in some of IRI and NDI's programs over the years. And as I said to you, IRI and NDI offer these programs to any party in Russia that wants to take advantage of it," US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said at a briefing, according to a transcript posted on the State Department's website.
