There is no question that Washington is behind the coup in Bolivia, as it has been in every country that has resources.
For the first time, the United States indirectly intervened in the internal political conflict in Bolivia, reaching out to the country’s military and political elite.
The technology of the organisation of the coup, used by the United States in Venezuela and Bolivia, can be applied in Russia. Unlike the classic examples of Ukraine, Georgia and Hong Kong, the trouble in Bolivia, Venezuela is not “colour revolutions” – it is an apostate coup d’etat, organised by agreement with individual elite groups.
Conspiracy theory; no evidence given.This narrative falls within the broader pro-Kremlin disinformation efforts attempting to deny the existence of genuine grass-roots protests, portraying them as foreign-led efforts and fake colour revolutions.
This is also part of a disinformation narrative about US-led regime change operations against left-wing governments in Latin America. You can see other examples of this narrative in the database, such as the alleged presence of a US marine in the Venezuelan barricades and the promotion of a Ukraine-style 'colour revolution', the training of Venezuelan exiles in Guyana for military operations inside the country, preparations for a military intervention after forcing Brazil to join NATO, deliberate blackouts in South America caused by the US, or the existence of plans for the secession of oil-rich regions in both Venezuela and Mexico.
Although the United States "applauds the Bolivian people for demanding freedom", there is no evidence to suggest that the US was directly involved in Evo Morales' resignation.
Morales’ resignation came during mass protests in the country after the Organisation of American States (OAS) reported “extensive irregularities” in the election for his fourth term. Morales had invited the OAS to observe the vote, and the group called for the election to be annulled. Read full debunk by Polygraph.
