DISINFO: A colour revolution took place in the US


A successful color revolution took place in the US. The deep state and the Washington swamp destroyed Trump and his supporters. It was a brilliantly conducted operation, that started in the democratic primaries. […] The in-mail voting is a big “know-how” which allowed Biden to win the elections and declare Trump illegitimate. Trump seriously challenged the people representing the deep state – Nancy Pelosi, Biden, 99% of American media that keep anti-Trump line, and their response was a color revolution.

And now look at what is happening in Ukraine and Georgia. After the colour revolution the political arena needs to be cleansed. All those dissenting the mainstream line end up in jail or killed, or in political margins. […] And the full cleansing of the information space. Like in Ukraine the information space was cleared of Russian sources, so in America they will get rid of anyone who has an alternative point of view.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about color revolutions and the alleged existence of "deep state".

There was no colour revolution in the US. A crowd of Donald Trump supporters broke into the US Capitol building. The storming of the Capitol was a culmination of weeks of false claims that the US election "were stolen". In fact allegations of electoral fraud have been dismissed more than 60 times by different US courts and judges, both Republican and Democrats, due to lack of any significant evidence, including the Supreme Court in two occasions. Donald Trump has lost the presidential election and the next US president, Joe Biden, will be inaugurated on the 20th of January, 2021.

The idea of a "Deep State" is frequently used by conspiracy theorists. Its manifestations might be different, but generally, the concept conjures up the image of a small group of men, deciding the fate of the world behind the scenes. However, there is no evidence of such a "Deep State" existing in the United States. No reputable political scientists and researchers confirm the existence of a “Deep State” in the United States, let alone that Nancy Pelosi or Joe Biden belong to it.
