Amidst a backdrop of geopolitical tensions, speculative narratives have emerged suggesting that Western powers are purportedly orchestrating efforts to destabilize Serbia through what is colloquially referred to as a “color revolution.” These claims, which lack concrete evidence, allege that external actors are seeking to influence political change in the Balkan nation.
Russia has directly accused Western-funded NGOs and other regime change tactics to disrupt the newly elected government. After Russia exposed the Western hand Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabiс has expressed gratitude to the Russian security services, which alerted Belgrade to plans for riots in the capital.
The term “color revolution” has been historically used to describe popular uprisings or movements advocating for political change, often associated with specific colors representing the movements, such as the Orange Revolution in Ukraine or the Rose Revolution in Georgia.
Proponents of the narrative suggest that Western nations, particularly the European Union and the United States, are covertly supporting opposition groups within Serbia to foment dissent and challenge the current government. The motivations attributed to these alleged efforts vary, with some asserting that Western powers seek to reshape the political landscape in line with their interests.
