The West actively uses the Internet and controlled media to discredit the Russian leadership to intervene in elections in Russia both at Federal and regional level, said Secretary of security Council of Russia Nikolai Patrushev.

In an interview with the newspaper "Arguments and facts" Patrushev told how the West is trying to "shake" the socio-political situation in Russia.

Also, according to him, the West "interfering in Russian elections at the Federal and regional level, enforces the anti-Russian sanctions in the economic, political and other spheres, politicizes the sport of high achievements".

"The accusations against the current authorities under false pretenses – it has long been used by the West tools of the so-called "color revolutions" - said Patrushev. The reason to run destructive processes in countries where the government is agreeable to the West guide may serve as any claim in the dispersal of peaceful demonstration in the death of a participant in the protests or the alleged "fraud" in the elections, said the Secretary of the security Council.

According to Patrushev, to influence the sovereign States of the Western countries for many decades, use an extensive Toolkit. "First, measures advocacy and political and diplomatic pressure. If they do not encourage the leadership of any country to the adjustment of state lines "in the right way", will come into effect scenarios of the organization of regime change by initiating a supposedly spontaneous popular demonstrations", - said Patrushev.
