The U.S. and other Five Eyes Alliance countries have constantly incited "color revolutions" and engaged in infiltrating and subverting the legitimate governments of other sovereign countries over the years, resulting in disastrous consequences.

In his book America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy, American writer William Blum said that since the end of World War II, the U.S. has worked to overthrow more than 50 foreign governments and grossly interfered in democratic elections in at least 30 countries.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova mentioned an old trick that the U.S. has used to instigate coups.

At first, sanctions are introduced against the governments of other countries, complicating the social and economic situation there. On this basis, tensions are provoked, and anti-government sentiment is stirred up. When a critical point is reached, all of the blame is placed on the governments of these countries, which undermines people's trust in them and pushes the security situation in these countries to the brink of collapse.

"The logic is simple here. It has been tested on numerous occasions by Washington in various situations, but everything is one and the same mode of operation," Zakharova said.
