MOSCOW, October 6 (RIA Novosti)
Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika has ordered to check the facts showed in “Anatomy of a Protest 2,” an investigative report broadcast on the state-owned NTV television network and in case of violations of the law to take necessary measures, General Prosecutor Office said on Saturday.
The expose claims that members of the opposition are using money from abroad to finance preparations for a seizure of power. Also the program shows a meeting, apparently recorded on a hidden camera, between Udaltsov and Givi Targamadze, the chairman of Georgia’s parliamentary committee for defense and security.
The narrator describes Targamadze as an individual with experience organizing the “color revolutions” of the past decade that swept opposition leaders into power in Georgia and Ukraine amid mass protests over election-rigging allegations.
The first part of “Anatomy of a Protest,” broadcast in March, focused on the "Big White Circle" protest on February 26 and claimed that many people were paid to attend the human-chain event, which involved tens of thousands of opposition supporters.

Today it may participate in a joint naval exercise with China that Beijing positions as outwardly anti-American. But tomorrow it can team up with the naval forces of the Old World.
