Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that protests, disorders and civil uprisings are never manifestations of genuine popular discontent and political desires manifested by the population, but are foreign engineered colour revolutions directed and funded by Western intelligence services or other Western actors, in this case, George Soros, to destabilise targeted foreign states and bring about regime change. The belief or conviction, that you can mastermind from abroad and run for long periods of time foreign countries, neglects fundamental dynamics in democratic aspirations among ordinary people. As such, this conviction disrespects and disregards the local population. Read more about the concept of "colour revolutions" in the pro-Kremlin media here.
There is no evidence to support this claim about the origins of the "Orange Revolution" which refers to events in Ukraine in 2004. The reasons can be found closer to home as explained in this article by Atlantic Council:
"On the eve of Ukraine’s fateful 2004 presidential election, Russian President Vladimir Putin was so confident of his ability to influence the outcome that he actually traveled to Kyiv and lectured Ukrainians on the need to back his chosen candidate. It was to prove a spectacular miscalculation, arousing indignation among many previously apolitical Ukrainians who sensed their country’s newfound independence was under threat.
Within weeks of Putin’s ill-judged visit, the Orange Revolution was underway".
The protests of late 2004 initially succeeded in preventing Kremlin-backed candidate Viktor Yanukovych from stealing the Ukrainian presidency and made possible the election of his reformist rival, Viktor Yushchenko.
Regarding the claims about George Soros, he is a philanthroper and founder of the Open Society Foundation and a frequent target of pro-Kremlin disinformation. The Open Society Foundation is active in more than 120 countries around the world. Its national and regional foundations and thematic programmes give thousands of grants every year towards building inclusive and vibrant democracies.
