US secret services behind colour revolutions in different countries

Summary of Disinformation

Europe started to realize that US secret services are behind the “yellow vests” protests. US is also involved in colour revolutions that happened in Ukraine and other countries. There are many similarities between the protests in France and those in Ukraine. Only the US have enough capacity to organise such protests.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative about "yellow vests" and US secret services' involvement in Europe.

For background:

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens.
