Disinfo: A clash of civilizations prompted a domestic military conflict in Ukraine

Summary

A clash of civilizations prompted a domestic military conflict in Ukraine. The confrontation between Orthodox Slavic and Western Christian civilizations has been manifest in the Ukrainian society. A civilizational factor as a catalyst of domestic military conflict in Ukraine is often overlooked or put in doubt. Ukraine’s federalization could soften the negative impact of the civilizational factor, however this scenario was not supported by either the West or Ukrainian oligarchs.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the war in Ukraine and Ukrainian statehood.

It was Russia that provoked a war in Ukraine, and it is not a civil war or 'domestic military conflict' as the disinformation message alleges.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February 2014 when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government.

The European Union stated in July 2014 that "arms and fighters continue flowing into Ukraine from the Russian Federation". At the NATO Summit in Wales in September 2014, NATO leaders condemned in the strongest terms Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and demanded that Russia stop and withdraw its forces from Ukraine and along the country’s border. NATO leaders also demanded that Russia comply with international law and its international obligations and responsibilities; end its illegitimate occupation of Crimea; refrain from aggressive actions against Ukraine; halt the flow of weapons, equipment, people and money across the border to the separatists; and stop fomenting tension along and across the Ukrainian border.

According to the US Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), Russian special forces and troops operated to mobilise, lead, equip, and support separatist militias in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine from spring 2014 to the present, although their presence was denied by Moscow.

Ukraine is a sovereign state. Neither US, nor the EU control Ukraine and impose decisions concerning the mode of government (federalism vs unitary state), etc.

Sweden is preparing a bridge-head for attacking Russia

Sweden is preparing a bridge-head for attacking Russia and is basing soldiers and military vehicles on the Island of Gotland, a popular tourist resort in the Baltic Sea.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation on western military, encircling Russia. Similar cases here and here. Sweden established a military unit on the island of Gotland in 2018, consisting of a few hundred conscripts; hardly sufficient to attack Russia.

Fire at Notre Dame de Paris: aliens' first target

The fire at Notre Dame de Paris is the aliens’ first target. Envoys from Nibiru are preparing an attack on a new cathedral, many UFOs have noticed during the fire in Notre Dame. Europe is in danger due to the influence of special forces.

Disproof

The investigation into the causes of the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral of Paris is ongoing. Recently, the French investigators stated that an electrical short circuit may have caused the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral. Extraterrestrial involvement is unlikely to be considered as a potential cause. Recurrent pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative about the fire in Notre Dame.

The fire at the Notre Dame was a satanic ritual

The fire of Notre Dame was the work of the Luciferian New World Order (NWO) as an intended attack on Christiandom. The proof is the series of profanations and destruction of churches in Europe in the last years, 1.063 of them only in France in 2018: on average, 3 attacks per day. Nobody said these were accidents, but it is hardly a surprise that authorities claim now that the fire in Notre Dame was accidental because this is how the NWO operates. The Islamic State launched a campaign calling to attack in Easter; some witnesses affirmed to have heard explosions in the temple before it started burning; president Macron – a former employee of the Rothschilds – suspended an important speech intended to address the protests of the “yellow vests” that have been cornering his government for months; and fire fighting airplanes were not used despite the advice of US president Donald Trump. It is impossible, in the era of technology, that a fire could break out by accident, and a large number of witnesses heard an explosion at the church as it started to burn. The firefighters did not use hydroplanes to put out the fire. President Macron, an employee of the Rotschilds, cancelled an important speech. And the day of the fire (April 15, 2019): 4+1+5+2+0+1+9 equals 22, a multiple of 11 – a number present in most mega-attacks. The timing coincides with the beginning of the Celtic month of the willows; the month of Witches, which culminates with the heathen Walpurgis Night on the 30 April – the eve of the foundation of the Illuminati Sect. The fire of Notre Dame has an obvious parallel to 9/11, and not only because of the similarity between its architecture of two towers together, but also with the number 11, so important to occult symbolism. The destruction of the Twin Towers was the assault on an economic symbol, which was followed a few years later by a devastating economic crisis. It is not difficult to imagine what the attack on the Christian symbol of Notre Dame, the most famous cathedral in the world, means: an intensification of the persecution of Christianity that we are already suffering in the West. The fire of Notre Dame is the 9/11 of Christianity. The signs are obvious – this is work of the Satanic New World Order. We are at the gates of a total Armageddon. The New World Order will stage a new Catholic holocaust, which is overwhelmingly prophesied in countless stories – including the Protestant – on the final Apocalypse, where we will be judged.

Disproof

This is a mixture of several conspiracy theories. It adheres to a known narrative that some kind of superior government led by powerful financial powers are attacking Christianity and Western civilization, of which there is absolutely no proof. Some of the elements have also appeared in previous disinformation pieces about Notre Dame in Russian-linked media.Other conspiracies include aliens, intelligence services, Free Masons and Ukrainian President-Elect Volodymyr Zelenskyi. More on pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets' use of conspiracy theories here. According to the official investigation of the Notre Dame fire, most likely an accident occurred due to renovation works activity, which started more then one year ago at Notre-Dame. In particular, according to firemen, the fire started in the area under renovation. The fire began from a spire which was encircled in scaffolding. Having collapsed in front of the face of journalists (the photo and video footage of the spire falling became very famous), the spire threw fire on all cathedral. The provided figure of 1,063 “profanations” is accurate, though misleading: it refers to “anti-Christian acts” in general, when actually only 875 of them were acts of vandalism or actions against churches, according to the Ministry of Interior of France. Of those, the big majority - around 700 - were graffiti, and only one hundred included violent acts. Actions such as property thefts in churches may also be included in the statistics, though they may be the work of common criminals.
