Crimea returned to Russia after a referendum on the peninsula.
An intention to destroy the balance in the relationship between white and black is not the only reason for the US protests. Everything is much more complicated. The name of financial speculator George Soros is openly […] announced. We have to remind that he is a “wallet” of colour revolutions and, thus, he decided to engage in a struggle with the current American president Donald Trump.
The story advances the pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative alleging that the racial justice protests in the US are being financed by George Soros. There is no evidence to suggest that the protests in the US broke out through “top-down mobilisation,” or that someone is financing the protests. This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, very often the former Soviet republics, as Western-funded "colour revolutions". The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on the 25 May 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US. You can see other examples of pro-Kremlin disinformation on the US racial justice protests in our database, such as claims that the US riots are a Maidan-style plot to oust Trump; that the US is suffering from a colour revolution it used to support abroad; that far-left Democrat organisations supported by Soros aim to oust Trump; that the protests are a second Civil War; or that the protests are directly organised by George Soros.
