“Color Revolutions” in Geopolitical Transformations in the Post-Soviet Space

Dobaev I.P.


The article reveals the nature and content of the «color revolutions», which are a special case of the so-called «network wars». It is shown that «colored» agitations are based on the foundation of internal conflict-causing factors (political, socio-economic, demographic-migration and ethno-confessional). However, they would not have been possible without external influence and diverse feeding, while the main external manipulator of the «color revolutions» in the post-Soviet space is the «consolidated West» led by the United States. «Color» deviations pose a real threat to the national security of countries in the post-Soviet space, and therefore need further detailed reflection and effective counteraction.
