Disinfo: The CIA is organising a colour revolution in the US to oust Donald Trump after the November 2020 elections

Summary

Russiagate and Impeachgate were failed coups d’état. The Deep State has decided to oust President Donald Trump by means of a colour revolution because it is aware that should Trump be re-elected he will be able to deal with the treason against him. The US media, as well as numerous websites financed by the CIA and foundations and corporations through which the CIA operates, are instilling the idea in the minds of Americans that Trump will not leave office if he loses, or that he will steal the election with fraud and therefore must be forced out. Trump’s legitimate victory in the elections is not deemed possible.

Should Trump win the election, Antifa and Black Lives Matter will again unleash violent protests in US cities, as they have done recently thanks to support from the Deep State. The CIA will make sure that the violence is well funded . The media and the Democratic Party will explain that the violence is necessary to liberate America from a tyrant.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. The article provides no evidence to support its claims.

The article repeats the recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation message claiming that a “colour revolution” in the US is underway, or will be implemented, to oust President Donald Trump. According to this narrative, the “colour revolution” is organised by the Democratic Party, the “Deep State”, and/or “globalist élites” such as George Soros, which are allegedly orchestrating and financing violent protests in US cities.

This message is consistent with the broad pro-Kremlin narrative that portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in many countries (including the anti-racist protests in the US) as "colour revolutions" orchestrated by shadowy élites or Western intelligence services.

There is no evidence that the anti-racist protests in the United States were and are directed and funded by shadowy actors - such as the Deep State, the CIA or the Democratic Party - with the goal of removing Trump. The protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on the 25 May 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US. There is also no evidence that US intelligence and security agencies are planning to unleash violent protests involving Black Lives Matters and Antifa after the November elections in order to remove Trump should he win the elections in November.

Read previous cases claiming that  the US riots are a Maidan-style plot to oust Trump  and that the US is suffering from a colour revolution it used to support abroad.

Novichok can be produced anywhere

The neurotoxic agent Novichok is a substance which can be produced in any laboratory in the world, as Vil Mirzayanov, who has left Russia for the United States, has published a book about it.

In particular, Leonid Rink, the so-called inventor of Novichok, has told RIA Novosti: “Vil Sultanovich (Mirzayanov), although not the creator of Novichok, published a book in the West about the Novichok system and its authors. Therefore, instead of apologizing to (Alexei) Navalny, he should apologize to the Attorney General’s Office, the state security services and the country for revealing secret data in the open literature, and then apologize to the entire world community for giving a complete description, for any kind of aggression, of the Novichok system in his book.”

He went on to say that Novichok could be produced in any chemical laboratory in the world, referring to the alleged “poisoning” of Alexei Navalny.

Disproof

This story belongs to a sustained efforts by the pro-Kremlin media to distract and distort the facts about the poisoning of Alexey Navalny, as they have done in the past in the Skripal case.

The use of a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group in the poisoning of Alexei Navalny was established beyond any doubt by a Bundeswehr laboratory.

Euromaidan and pro-European politics led to the collapse of Ukraine

When in 2013, Ukrainian pro-Western politicians who lost two elections in a row drove their fellow citizens to Euromaidan, they promised them European prosperity and the highest standard of living. Instead, Ukraine received a deep economic crisis, war, and the de facto collapse of the country.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign against Ukraine, containing multiple disinformation narratives regarding the Euromaidan and Ukrainian statehood.

The Euromaidan did not lead to the loss of Crimea and the war in Donbas; this occurred through Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea and its armed aggression in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The occupation of Crimea, which has not been recognised by the democratic world, including the United Nations, and the war in Donbas caused a deep economic crisis in 2014-2015. However, the Ukrainian economy already began to recover in 2015.

What is happening in Minsk is primarily a Polish project

What is happening in Minsk is primarily a Polish project. Warsaw is behind the ongoing protests of its neighbours, it provides political and media support to the leaders of the Belarusian opposition. The result, however, is impressive in an exclusively negative sense: only the phenomenon of “President Sveta” (this is how Svyatlana Tsikhanoeskaya’s instagram is called) can serve as an example of how not to do it as political technology.

Disproof

This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus. It accuses Poland of planning to intervene in the domestic affairs of Belarus, which is a severe violation of the principles of diplomacy and international relations.

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.
