BEIJING, November 18. /TASS/. Russia and China should jointly stand against “color revolutions” which both countries are facing, a deputy Russian defence minister said after talks between Russian and Chinese defence chiefs on Tuesday.

“We focused on those events which have recently taken place in Hong Kong, and both ministers acknowledged that no country is immune from ‘color revolutions,’” Anatoly Antonov said.

“It only seems that these “color revolutions” and these experiments by Western spin doctors, including those from the United States, are being implemented somewhere far from China or the Russian Federation,” Antonov said. “All this is in fact near us, and we believe that Russia and China should work together to withstand this new security challenge to our countries.”

Russia and China, in his words, know about the problem of “color revolution” on the example of Ukraine, “where a coup d’etat took place and we now see the trials this brotherly country is living through and we see how much effort is to be exerted by all to establish peace, tranquility and order in that country.
