So in case you’re not aware already, there is a mass demonstration taking place in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. The initial cause of the protest was apparently a 16% hike in electricity prices. As was the case with Euromaidan, police cracked down hard on the protesters (actually much faster than they did in Kyiv), which brought more people out today. It is also worth noting that Armenia is a member of the so-called Eurasian Union.
Now that you know the true cause of the protests, sit back and laugh your ass off as pro-Kremlin media and Team Russia bloggers tell you that this is a CIA-financed “color revolution” aimed at wrenching Armenia away from its “brother nation” Russia, which incidentally maintains a military base on its soil and has been making all kinds of deals with genocide-denying Turkey as of late.
Naturally the people can’t be upset about electricity prices. Surely some American funded NGOs are paying them to go out and get hosed down by water cannons! Why can’t they be more like Russians, and just sit tight and grumble at steadily rising prices while calling it “stability?” This is what vatniks and their Western fellow travelers actually believe.
So mark my words- if the protests continue and worsen, Global Research will churn out a long, rambling piece detailing all the clues tying this protest to the CIA.
