The US Department of State is introducing extremists into the protests in Belarus, using dirty methods to destabilise the situation in the country, according to Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR). By working with the Belarusian opposition, the US is trying to increase the activity of radical nationalists. The “fighters for a renewed Belarus” – extremists, that is – are being trained in Poland, Georgia, Ukraine and the Baltic countries with the help of CIA and Pentagon instructors affiliated with US NGOs.
What happens in Kyrgyzstan represents an absolutely precisely planned and organised event. It doesn’t matter how the elections ended, the protests have nothing to do with these. Elections were just a pretext.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about a "colour revolution" in Kyrgyzstan. The protests in Kyrgyzstan erupted to contest the results of the parliamentary elections that took place on 4 October, which are considered unfair by opposition parties. As a result of the elections, none of the twelve established opposition parties secured seats in the parliament. The parties declared they would not recognise the results of the voting. The president and the ruling parties were accused of vote-buying and voter intimidation. The rallies forced mass resignations that included the prime minister, the cabinet and several governors and mayors. On 7 October, the electoral authorities annulled the election results. Kyrgyzstan President Sooronbai Jeenbekov announced his resignation on 15 October. In a statement released by his office, Jeenbekov, who has faced calls to step down from protesters and political opponents, said that peace, unity, and integrity of the people is more important for him than power.
