Disinfo: Biden’s election team repeats colour revolution scenario in the US

Summary

The similarity of the style between Biden’s election team and American puppets in the post-Soviet countries is not a coincidence. Because the “colour revolution” in the United States is carried out by those who planned and carried out this process in the former Soviet Union and other countries.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory regarding revolutions which have happened in the former Soviet Union countries. There is no given evidence that somebody planned and carried out "colour revolutions" in former Soviet Union countries.

Some of the so-called "colour revolutions" in former Soviet Union countries include the so-called "Rose Revolution" in Georgia in 2003, "Tulip Revolution" in Kyrgyzstan in 2005, and "Orange Revolution" in Ukraine in 2005.

Behind the "Rose Revolution" in Georgia, there were different political, economical and social reasons. The protests in Tbilisi continued from 2 November to 23 November and, as the result, the former president of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze resigned and Mikheil Saakashvili came to power.

The "Tulip Revolution" in Kyrgyzstan began after the second round of the parliamentary elections on 13 March 2005, when the demonstrations started in large cities. The protesters occupied government buildings and president Asker Akayev fled to Kazakhstan. As the result of mass demonstrations, president of Kyrgyzstan Askar Akayev resigned and new elections were appointed.

As for the "Orange Revolution", on 22 November 2005, protests in Ukraine began in several cities after the presidential elections. The protesters were against the results of the elections which resulted in Viktor Yanukovych becoming the newly elected president. These demonstrations lasted until new elections were held. The new elections brought victory to another candidate, Viktor Yushchenko.

All these "colour revolutions" began in different regions and at different times. There is no connection between these demonstrations. All of them started after elections, with people protesting against the results, which in most cases were considered rigged.

The reference to the US elections is part of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign on the US election. The report from the OSCE finds that the election was "competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

Ukraine is preparing a law for the mass abduction of Russian citizens

The adoption of a law [on the prisoners of war and internees] can violate the rights of Russian citizens and the entire Russian-speaking population of Ukraine. Under the guise of bringing the legislation in line with international norms, Kyiv is preparing to deport the residents of the South-East to special camps and forcefully return Donbas.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Ukraine and related to the war in Donbas.

The Ukrainian parliament is not preparing a bill that will allow the mass abduction of Russian citizens or their internment. The law, on the contrary, must define who can be subjected to internment, what are these people's rights and define the rights and obligations of state institutions.

Maia Sandu’s mission is to help Biden create a sanitaire cordon around Russia

Maia Sandu, with Filat behind her, will help Biden create a cordon sanitaire around Russia.

Disproof

This message is in line with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative, which presents the good relations of NATO or United States with Eastern European countries as actions aimed to encircle Russia.

No evidence given. The claim appears a reaction to a Facebook post by the former prime minister of Moldova, Vlad Filat, in which he congratulated Joe Biden with his victory in the US elections. This post is presented as a proof that the candidate in the Moldovan presidential election, Maia Sandu, who used to be part of the same party as Vlad Filat, is committed to "ally" with the USA to the detriment of Russia. Maia Sandu did not comment in any way on the results of the US presidential election.

US army seized a server in Germany, operated by Scytl, through which the elections were rigged

The Trump administration has already discovered that the server of the US electronic voting systems was located in Frankfurt, Germany. The US military has launched a special operation in Germany and seized a server through which the elections were rigged. A Spanish company, Scytl, which was serving the mentioned Dominion in Frankfurt, was funded by George Soros and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Capital with $40 million. One of the main shareholders of the company is Bill Gates. It was also revealed that the aforementioned company had a direct connection to the election headquarters of Joe Biden and the US Democratic Party.

Disproof

The story is part of an emerging pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative seeking to delegitimise the conduct and results of the 2020 US presidential election.

The false claims followed a Zoom call last week that featured Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas, suggesting that “US Army forces” had seized servers from the Frankfurt office of the software company Scytl. In his recorded remarks, Gohmert said he had heard from “former intel people” that Scytl maintained data that could be “gleaned” to prove Republican votes had been changed to Democratic ones in the Nov. 3 election.
