DISINFO: The West interferes in Russian and Chinese affairs, organises colour revolutions
A recently adopted Hong Kong law eliminates the vulnerability of inadequate countermeasures to colour revolutions, which Western countries are masters at. The intensity of efforts by the collective West to prevent legal amendments in Hong Kong is explained by the reasoning applied by Western puppeteers. Advocates of capitulation to the West are ready to man the barricades and use subversive activities only if they do not face any consequences. “Colour” revolutionaries want money, power, comfort, and social approval. As soon as they are deprived of comfort, the wish to take part in political life runs out to zero. The West’s attempts to interfere in China’s domestic affairs proves that anti-Russian sanctions allegedly linked to the Crimea referendum, in reality have nothing to do with Russian actions. Inevitable anti-China sanctions linked to Hong Kong will not have anything to do with Beijing’s actions either. Sanctions and interference in Russian and Chinese domestic affairs by the West will take place in any case, convenient excuses will just be used.
This is a conspiracy theory consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Western influence behind the protests in Hong Kong and the West's anti-Russian activities.The pro-Kremlin media frequently use disinformation narratives about popular protests allegedly incited and funded by the US around the world, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others. The protests in Hong Kong started in June 2019 when hundreds of thousands of people protested against a legislative proposal that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China. The protests continued for months, as they morphed into a battle over Beijing’s deepening control of the city. Protesters demanded electoral reforms and an independent investigation into police violence. Chinese state-run media sought to discredit the protesters, calling their actions “terrorism,” and to spread disinformation. Crimea is a part of Ukraine and was illegally annexed by Russia. In 2014, Russian troops obliged the parliament of Crimea to organise a referendum, which was illegitimate under international law, and then formally annexed the peninsula and brought it under Russian territorial control. The EU's policy of non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol includes a set of restrictive measures against entities and individuals responsible for actions against Ukraine's territorial integrity.
