Looking for Russian traces in the 'yellow vests' protests is a cover-up

Summary of Disinformation

Looking for proofs that Russia may be involved in the ‘yellow vests’ protests aims to cover wrong political decisions of other countries, for example France.

NATO, the United Kingdom and the United States benefit from the anti-Russian narrative. The BBC plays a crucial role in campaigns against states which may be perceived by the Western powers as an enemy to their interest.


No evidence given. The potential involvement of Russia in amplifying the protests in France with help of social media has been mentioned in analyses (described ia. by Bloomberg and The Times). It is now subject to investigation by French authorities.
