NATO is preparing colour revolutions in several CSTO countries

Summary of Disinformation

NATO forces are preparing colour revolutions in some Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) countries to put Western-controlled regimes in power. The goal of the Atlantic Alliance is to seed discord among the members of the CSTO and cooperating with NATO always implies an anti-Russian element.

Disproof

Six countries are full members of CSTO: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan, with Afghanistan and Serbia as observer states. No evidence is provided to support the claim that NATO is working on fomenting protests in of any of them.

The alleged preparation of ‘colour revolutions’ to destabilise non-Western countries and take Western-backed leaders to power is a recurrent Russian disinformation narrative, frequently used to justify the persecution against domestic opposition. There are variations to this narrative, claiming that the force behind the ‘colour revolutions’ is either the US, NATO or George Soros, but it is often used to discredit popular protests all over the world, from Hong Kong to Georgia to Venezuela, and to justify the governments taking strong actions against them.
