The protests in Hong Kong are US sponsored

Summary of Disinformation

Hong Kong’s opposition has already long been exposed as US-sponsored. The protests in Hong Kong are organized to delay the inevitable end to the West’s “primacy” over Asia and in particular its attempts to dominate China.  In the process, these protests will continue to expose Washington’s methods of fueling political subversion and the Western media’s role in deceitfully promoting and defending it – compromising similar operations being carried out elsewhere across Asia-Pacific and around the world. US Colour Revolution Masquerades as “Popular Opposition”.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative casting civil uprisings in other states as US-funded "colour revolutions", also present in the case of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Venezuela. Consistent with multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role.
