DISINFO: US is creating a destabilising belt around Russia
The United States is systematically forming a destabilising belt around Russia in order to ultimately force Moscow to capitulate to the West. […] a proxy war, or information-hybrid war, of the West against Russia is already underway. Its goal is to dismantle the Russian state and turn it into a failed state.
Conspiracy theory, recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative alleging the US has an anti-Russian policy and attempts to orchestrate "colour revolutions" in and around Russia, in an attempt to encircle it. There is no evidence that the US is trying to destabilise Russia. The US State Department informs that "the United States would like to move beyond the current low level of trust with Russia, stabilise our relationship, and cooperate where possible and when it is in the core U.S. national security interest to do so. [...] The long-term goal of the United States is to see Russia become a constructive stakeholder in the global community." Pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives frequently claim that popular protests around the world are allegedly incited, and funded, by the US and other Western states, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others. This narrative claims that protests, disorders, and civil uprisings are never manifestations of popular discontent but are “colour revolutions” directed and funded by the West. See similar cases claiming that Ukraine is stirring up revolutions in Belarus and Russia under the control of RAND corporation, that Belarus is under attack by the unilateral globalist world to indirectly destabilise Vladimir Putin, or that the West's attack against Belarus is also an attack against Russia.
