China’s ambassador to the United States, Qin Gang, recently joined his Russian counterpart, Anatoly Antonov, to denounce Mr. Biden’s summit as hypocritical and hegemonic. Writing in The National Interest, the conservative magazine, they alluded to support for democratic movements in authoritarian countries that became known as “color revolutions.”

Can you see whose support, Biden's or China's support for democratic movements? Logically it's Biden's, but its grammar is not clear to me.

If you read the whole article, you will know that the allusion was to support (in the past) from western countries for colour revolutions. This is not clear from just the two sentences quoted.
