Disinfo: The West is afraid to start a war with Russia, so it uses a nosy “fifth column” for its destabilisation

Summary

Today, Russia and Putin have become very powerful, while the so-called West is facing serious problems, which it cannot solve. That is why the West decided to invent the only global problem, calling it “Putin”.

A war with Russia would be the simplest solution for many [Western] generals and their supporters, but the American military is well aware of the most complicated consequences of this war. That is why the rest of the “Western world” decided to invest in a “roundabout way”, which goal is the subordination of Russia through the building of a noisy “fifth column”, which would destabilise Russia from within.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexey Navalny and alleged Western aggression against Russia. The claim that Navalny is somehow used by the West and foreign special services for the political destabilisation of Russia is false.

Anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny has long been the most prominent face of Russian opposition to President Vladimir Putin. His candidacy in the 2018 presidential election was banned by authorities over his conviction by a Russian court for embezzlement, which bars him from running for office. He has been arrested and imprisoned several times during his political career.

There is no evidence to suggest that the Russian opposition figure was, or has been, in connection with foreign intelligence services. It should be noted that an opposing narrative, that the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) is a Kremlin project and that Navalny is an agent of the Russian secret services is also pure speculation and not based on facts.

Read similar cases claiming that the US hopes that the Navalny case will lead to the cancellation of Nord Stream 2, that the West will falsely accuse Russia of poisoning Navalny, as with Skripal and Litvinenko, that the West has an interest in the death of Navalny to launch a new wave of sanctions against Russia, that Navalny is financed by the West as a fifth column against Russia, or Europe evacuated its agent Navalny, and poisoning is fake.
