After the various "color revolutions" (e.g., the former Yugoslavia, Georgia, Egypt, Syria, Ukraine) NGOs have increasingly been a focus of attention of people trying to understand this phenomenon that has been frequently occurring in recent history. Considerable evidence has now been accumulated to indicate that this is another weapon in the arsenal of the Empire to subvert governments into alignment with Empire interests (e.g., western corporate access to natural resources and markets, to promote subservience to Empire banking institutions by encouraging governments to take on debt, to work against adversaries of the Empire). This has been most clearly recognized by adversaries, Russia and China, who are viewed as standing in the way of the Empire's quest for world domination.
...[in May 2014] Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, argued that color revolutions are a new form of warfare invented by Western governments seeking to remove independently-minded national governments in favor of ones controlled by the West. They argued that this was part of a global strategy to force foreign values on a range of nations around the world that refuse to accept U.S. hegemony and that Russia was a particular target of this strategy.Indeed, this description fits perfectly with what we know about the overthrow of the elected government in Ukraine.
While the West considers color revolutions to be peaceful expressions of popular will opposing repressive authoritarian regimes, Russian officials argue that military force is an integral part of all aspects of color revolutions. Western governments start by using non-military tactics to change opposing governments through color revolutions that utilize the protest potential of the population to engineer peaceful regime change. But military force is concealed behind this effort. If the protest potential turns out to be insufficient, military force is then used openly to ensure regime change.
