Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov slammed attempts to repeat "colour revolutions" in Latin American countries as the could escalate tensions in the region, APA reports citing Sputnik. 

In early November, Bolivia's then-president Evo Morales stepped down and fled to Mexico after his re-election to a fourth term prompted protests. Besides Bolivia, another Latin American country, Venezuela, has been struck by mass protests since January following the inauguration of President Nicolas Maduro.

The term “colour revolution” is widely used to describe the Western-backed regime changes which took place in some countries of the former Soviet Union and the Balkans during the 2000s, including Ukraine's 'Orange revolution', Georgia's 'Rose revolution', Serbia's 'Bulldozer revolution' and Kyrgyzstan's 'Tulip revolution'.
