DISINFO: London-based headquarters organise colour revolutions in Belarus, Myanmar, Russia, and the US


The State Counsellor of Myanmar Aung San Suu Kyi is an illegal president. She is accused of violating the state of emergency. Globalists are attempting to destabilise Myanmar. Reporting about events in Myanmar, Euronews used close-ups to create an impression of large-scale protests. The London-based headquarters of globalists, followers of Soros and Clinton, apply the same destabilising techniques in various countries. They carry out hybrid war operations and colour revolutions in Myanmar, Belarus, Russia, and the US.


This article promotes a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world, particularly Soros, Clinton, and globalists in this case. This is an example of big conspiracy, which groundlessly attributes groundbreaking events in Belarus, Myanmar, Russia, and the US to the vicious activities of some "London-based headquarters." Read our past analysis "Why authoritarians love the concept of the big conspiracy."

In his statement of 1 February 2021, the High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell strongly condemned the coup in Myanmar/Burma and called for an immediate and unconditional release of President Win Myint, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, and all others who have been arrested by the Tatmadaw. On 22 February 2021, the Council of the EU adopted conclusions condemning the military coup carried out in Myanmar in the strongest terms, and reiterated its call on the military authorities to immediately and unconditionally release civilian political leaders and all those who have been detained or arrested in connection with the coup.

Irrespective of how one of the Euronews video reports about Myanmar events was interpreted, there are numerous media reports, photo and video materials which prove massive protest rallies in Myanmar following the coup, which gather hundreds of thousands of people.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the global elites prepare a big coup d'etat - "The Great Reset," that the Capitol unrest was a double conspiracy, that assassination of John F. Kennedy and 9/11 attacks were organised by Deep State, that the “Deep State” fights with Trump, and examples of disinformation cases suggesting the US government's involvement in the 9/11 attacks.
