The West destabilises Armenia to weaken Russia in Syria

Summary of Disinformation

The West began destabilizing the situation in Armenia, the participant of the Eurasian Union, in order to weaken Russia’s positions in Syria.

The protests in Armenia, which the opposition leaders themselves called a “velvet revolution”, should be considered in the context of the aggravation of Russia’s relations with the West and the Syrian crisis.


Recurring disinformation in pro-Kremlin outlets that the West is the organiser behind any civil protests or colour revolutions. No evidence given.
