CIA want to distract Putin with colour revolution in Georgia – Wilkerson

The unrest in Georgia was inspired by the CIA as the service tries to divert Russian President Vladimir Putin’s attention from the special operation in Ukraine, retired US Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson suggested in an interview with YouTube channel Dialogue Works.


“I suspect that what is happening (riots in Georgia. – Editor’s note) is coordinated by the CIA. We are trying to divert Putin’s attention from Ukraine by causing chaos elsewhere. Georgia is exactly the place I would choose, because we have so many long-standing ties there,” Lawrence Wilkerson said.

According to the officer, the Russian president was hardly concerned about the CIA’s influence in Tbilisi earlier, but the current actions of US agents are allegedly capable of attracting the attention of the Russian leadership.

“He (Russian President Vladimir Putin. – Editor’s note) would not want to redirect forces in this way (to fight the US in Georgia. – Editor’s note), but if we behave like this at his borders, stir up ‘uprisings’ there, ‘colour revolutions’ and the like, he will have to deal with these issues,” Wilkerson described the CIA logic.

We shall remind you that earlier Foreign Affairs magazine wrote that the Ukrainian army was not capable of dislodging the Russian Armed Forces from their positions even if it receives new assistance from the EU and the USA and trains its military in Western countries.
