Today in Belarus we see signs of a colour revolution, but a hybrid one. It combines Hong Kong’s 2019-2020 scheme, and in terms of its overall coup strategy, the colour revolution in Belarus is very similar and almost replicates the Venezuelan scenario first used by the Americans in 2019. It is a technology that is almost never missed. The elements of the Ukrainian Maidan are clearly visible as the main outline in the events taking place in Belarus.
The protests taking place in Bulgaria are falsely promising a social revolution since capitalism will be preserved, the middle class will continue to be monopolised by big business and the workers will keep being exploited. The protesters are said to hail from the bottom layers of Bulgarian society, representing puppets of the oligarchy. The President of Bulgaria, who supports the protests, wants to carry out a coup. He does not actually offer a geopolitical reorientation to Russia and Bulgaria’s exit from the EU and NATO but instead aims at derailing Russian energy projects in the country (including the construction of the Belene nuclear power plant and Turk Stream). The ‘maidan of the street’ is an American operation, which has set its sights on driving Moscow out of the Balkans and bears significant resemblance to the US-plotted protests in Belarus. Overall, the coup – inspired by the President and supported by America, wants to bring to power neo-fascists and Russophobes.
A recurring pro-Russian disinformation narrative that denounces protest movements as coups orchestrated by the US and aiming to diminish Russian influence. The article falsely claims to be unmasking protests as being unable and unwilling to bring about a social revolution. Yet, the protest participants’ main demands focus on political transparency and accountability, whereby calls for a socialist transformation putting an end to capitalism have not been recorded. The article also attributes ulterior motives to the protests – as being plotted by the US, which however does not exist. The protest activity in Bulgaria – as in Belarus, has been indigenously spawned and triggered by dissatisfaction with authoritarian political tendencies, corruption and the capturing of the state by vested oligarchic interests.
