Moscow Accuses U.S. of Attempting to Incite Russian Revolution

Russia on Wednesday warned the U.S. is cultivating means to foment a "color revolution" in Russia.

Russia's Security Council on Wednesday warned that the United States could be seeking to foment a revolution in Russia.

The council said in a statement on its website that the U.S. national security strategy adopted last month has a "clear anti-Russian orientation."

It added that the U.S. is cultivating means that could be used to incite a "color revolution" in Russia similar to ones that have toppled regimes in other former Soviet states.

"The ever-widening expansion to eliminate political regimes that are undesirable to the U.S. will acquire advanced means for [inciting] color revolutions, with a high probability of their application in regard to Russia," the statement said.

Russian authorities have reiterated on numerous occasions their apprehensions about the prospect of a color revolution happening in Russia.

Earlier this month President Vladimir Putin urged Interior Ministry officials to redouble efforts to smother any revolutionary movement that could "provoke civil conflict and strike a blow at our country's constitutional foundations."

Putin said at a Security Council meeting in November that color revolutions in the former Soviet Union should serve as a "lesson and warning" and that everything should be done to prevent one from occurring in Russia.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
