The US Capitol Hill siege in Russian memes

On January 5–6, 2021, supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump gathered in Washington, D.C., to protest against the result of the 2020 presidential election and support Trump’s demand for Vice President Mike Pence and Congress to reject President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. An armed and angry mob of Trump supporters stormed Capitol Hill and clashed with police as Congress convened to validate Joe Biden’s presidential win.

The incident was the first time the Capitol had been overrun since the 1814 burning of Washington by the British during the War of 1812.
