DISINFO: A paid colour revolution is going on in Belarus 


Once again, despite being exposed, US imperialism is trying its miserable attempts with brutal hegemony to launch its paid colour “revolutions” from the Baltic and Black Sea to the shores of the Mediterranean. And the attention today is pointed towards all theaters of the soft war operations with the power and focus on Belarus. In spite of the disinformation efforts of the American-European media machine / NATO, which are trying to portray what is happening in the former Soviet Republic of Belarus as a struggle between the legitimate president Aliaksander Lukashenka and the housewife Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya, […], the aim that the United States and its European tails are trying to achieve in this country have nothing to do with democracy, nor with any other noble humanitarian goal whatsoever.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Belarus and colour revolutions.

The protests in Belarus erupted to contest the results of the presidential election in Belarus on the 9th of August, which are considered fraudulent by a large part of Belarusian society. The European Union has also stated that the elections were neither free nor fair. There is no evidence that the protests in Belarus are funded and organised externally. Pro-Kremlin media frequently use disinformation narratives about popular protests around the world allegedly incited and funded by the US and other Western states, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others. This narrative claims that protests, disorders and civil uprisings are never manifestations of popular discontent but are “colour revolutions” directed and funded by the West. See similar cases claiming that the protests in Belarus are a colour revolution conducted according to a Maidan scenario and that the West wants to prepare Maidan in Belarus.
