The Russian authorities call any democratic and pro-Western protest actions in other countries, mainly European, aimed at changing the government or the countryʼs political course, color revolutions. According to the Kremlin, all such actions are coordinated and financed by the West, and especially the USA. In particular, the Rose Revolution in Georgia, the Orange Revolution and the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine, mass protests against Lukashenko in Belarus in 2020 and many others were called color revolutions in the Russian government.
