Disturbing Day in the US

On 6 January 2021, during the official approval procedure of the results of the US presidential election held in Congress, D. Trump's supporters broke into the Capitol

There were several people dead during the riot. The same day was the last day of the congressional election in Georgia. Democrats managed to gain a majority of the seats. Ilya Kravchenko, a consultant to the RISS Director, notes that the new administration of J. Biden will now have full control of the executive and legislative branches of government. However, in both the presidential and congressional elections, the Democrats won by a very narrow margin. "It seems to be a victory, but it may turn out to be a pyrrhic victory," suggests the expert .

Twitter and Facebook have blocked the messages of the still-incumbent President of the United States. According to I. Kravchenko, the actions of the Democrats aimed at demonising D. Trump, only increased the polarisation in American society. The intensity of political passions can lead to even more radical events.
