Patrushev: Color revolutions are main tool of American-style democracy
The Russian Security Council Secretary warns that a man-made disaster at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant will affect the entire globe.
Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev considered Friday that Ukrainian forces are attacking the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) at the suggestion of the United States.
"At the behest of the US, the Ukrainians have been incessantly bombarding crucially vital infrastructure at the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant," said Patrushev when addressing the 17th meeting of the Security Council Secretaries from Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member countries.
"If a man-made disaster occurs there, it will affect the entire globe," he warned, adding that the US and "their vassals" have regularly orchestrated similar cynical provocations.
Patrushev pointed out that the West is trying to strike a balance between hybrid operations and an open armed conflict with Russia.
"The situation around Ukraine shows that the West has been balancing between hybrid actions and an open armed conflict with our country for which they have not ceased preparing themselves," he said.
According to Patrushev, "Washington and its regional allies, primarily London, have been advertising projects to expand the existing military blocs or to build new ones in various regions across the globe to an exclusively narrow group of countries."
The Russian Security Council Secretary underlined that "color revolutions remain the main tool of what's known as American-style democracy since the Western establishment keeps undertaking regular endeavors to whip up revolutions in our counties."
"This is how we view the 2020 developments in Belarus and the events that occurred in Kazakhstan in January 2022 and in Uzbekistan’s Karakalpakstan Region in July," he pointed out.
