Russian and Chinese Narratives on the US Capitol Riots

  • Russian and Chinese IO rapidly adapted to address the siege of the US Capitol and have aggressively attacked American democracy in media coverage
  • China: most concerned with US double standards in criticism of domestic protests, whether they occur domestically or abroad, with a special emphasis on Hong Kong protests.
  • Russia: compared the riots to the Color Revolutions; maintains past approaches to unrest in the US by amplifying radical perspectives and sowing discord with volatile content.
