Disinfo: The US and Europe are creating a belt of Russophobia and instability around Russia


During the last decade, the colour revolutions became the main tool of Western geopolitical work used to destabilise and weaken its competitors. But this technology is not a "know-how" any more. Just recently it failed in Belarus and Hong Kong. And the ingloriously failed Russian protests were also organised according to a similar template.

The US and Europe have never concealed that they are creating a belt of Russophobia and instability around Russia.


This article promotes recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the Western World as a source of colour revolutions as a tool against other countries. It repeats traditional claims about Western Russophobia and aims to encircle Russia.

The 'Western World' does not see Russia as an enemy. Despite complicated relations connected to aggressive Kremlin policy against neighbour countries and violation of international law, the US and the EU hope that it could go back to constructive relations with Russia in the future. See the official position of the EU here and the position of the US here.

It is wrong to compare the protests in Belarus and Hong Kong since they were linked to different reasons and situations. In Belarus, people protested against the falsification of the results of presidential elections. In Hong Kong, public outrage was linked to the deprivation of liberty by continental China.

Representing the latest protest during 2021 in Russia as a colour revolution inspired by the West is also wrong. Many recent protests in Russia in 2021 were linked to the Alexei Navalny case. Pro-Kremlin disinformation often targets Russian opposition figures accusing them of being agents of Western intelligence services. There is no basis to claims that Navalny has connections with foreign intelligence. He has been charged with mock accusations of embezzlement in mock trials. The European Court of Human Rights (where Russia is a member since 1996) has previously concluded that the trial against Navalny was politically motivated. The European Union has condemned the detention of Alexei Navalny and called for his immediate release.

See similar cases when Kremlin disinformation accusing the Western World of Russophobia and promotion of colour revolutions: London-base headquarters organise colour revolutions in Belarus, Myanmar, Russia and the US; Navalny is a NATO agent, provoking a colour revolution in Russia; Americans and Europeans are orchestrating protests around the World.
