Anton Morozov, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, commented on the statement by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian about the start of an investigation into Russia’s alleged involvement in organizing “yellow vests” protests.
Morozov told that Russia is not interested in pressure on France, declining it to any decisions. He stressed that Moscow regards this state as a reliable and equal partner, despite the existing differences on the issues of the Crimea and Donbas.
“The search for potential customers for protests in the country is still in a different place, since we have observed a completely typical technology of the color revolution,” he said, advising the French, “as we say in the people, smash their eyes.”
Morozov noted that the United States controls “almost 100% of the media space in Europe,” including in France. “They managed to form the Russophobic mainstream, which prompts European politicians, in particular French, to blame Russia for everything instead of finding out the truth,” the parliamentarian concluded.
Earlier Sunday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that the General Secretariat for Defense and National Security of France (SGDSN) is investigating Russia’s possible involvement in protests in the country.
Prior to this, the SBU announced Russia’s involvement in the protests in France based on a photograph of two people in yellow vests with the flag of the proclaimed DNR in Paris.
