MOSCOW, July 10 (Itar-Tass) - The period of colour revolutions is far from being over in the world, State Duma parliamentarians told a news conference at Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
On the one hand revolutions as such are “romanticized, including those in the Anglo-Saxon world,” said Vyacheslav Nikonov, the head of the State Duma education committee and expert in international affairs. “Yes, many our compatriots will not agree that revolutions are a bad thing.”
“On the other hand, colour revolutions should be seen as operations to overthrow regimes that had been repeatedly undertaken,” he said.
The parliamentarian recalled that practice of colour revolutions in many respects was introduced by the Communist International or Comintern. Over the past 40 years there had been approximately 60 successful and less successful attempts to overthrow different regimes in the world.
Nikonov noted that of late “many colour revolutions ended not in such a way as their organizers planned, they were spontaneous and contradicted logic.”
Liberal Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky believes that “revolutions as wars will always be, until money exists and money will be always found.”
He said there is only one mastermind of revolutions - “the U.S. dollar and in order to rescue it resentment is dressed in different clothes - racial, religious.”
At the same time Zhirinovsky expressed confidence that the first colour revolution took place in Russia in 1917.
