Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation: euvsdisinfo.eu/report/armenia-glorifies-fascism/,

Nzhdeh was one of the prominent military leaders of a short-lived independent Armenian republic formed in 1918. In 1920, he mounted armed resistance against the republic’s takeover by Bolshevik Russia in Zangezur, a mountainous region in what is now southeastern Armenia. He is widely credited with preserving Armenian control over Zangezur.

Nato forgot all the previously existing agreements, made former socialist countries join it and besieged Russia

NATO forgot all the previously existing agreements, made some ungrateful former socialist republics join it and besieged Russia as a cackle of hyenas besieges a dying lion. On the contrary, a dying lion is still a lion. Russia began to regain its health and showed its power to the world. NATO, on the other hand, remains a threat to the mankind and drains the countries embittered by it into the hell of nuclear war

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation that NATO would have promised at the time of German reunification that the Alliance will not expand to the East.

Back in 2014, Gorbachev rejected this claim: "The topic of ‘NATO expansion’ was not discussed at all, and it wasn’t brought up in those years. I say this with full responsibility." https://www.rbth.com/international/2014/10/16/mikhail_gorbachev_i_am_against_all_walls_40673.html.

US has artificially created a quasi-state of terrorists in Syria and then fought it themselves.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the US creating terrorists/Daesh in Syria. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Daesh&disinfo_issue=&date=,

The US is fighting against Daesh together with the Global Coalition against Daesh http://theglobalcoalition.org/en/home/. The US MoD outlines the latest progress on their website https://www.defense.gov/News/Article/Article/1322158/strikes-continue-in-effort-to-defeat-isis-in-syria-iraq/. Furthermore, a recent report by the Conflict Armament Research has found that up to 90 per cent of weapons seized from ISIS in Iraq and Syria originated from China, Russia and Eastern Europe http://www.conflictarm.com/publications/. US arms accounted for just 1.8 per cent of items recovered between 2014 and 2017 while 43.5 per cent of weapons originated in China, according to analysts. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5228199/Analysis-shows-origins-ISIS-weapons-came-from.html

The US is preparing Moldova for a hybrid war with Russia

The US will analyse the Moldovan infrastructure and will check its readiness for wartime conditions. The American military will search also for potential allies among the local population. This research will be carried out with the active support of the NATO Liaison Office in Chisinau. 

The US is destroying Moldova’s economy.

Disproof

Contacted by Stopfals.md, the NATO Liaison Office in Chisinau denied this information: "The NATO Liaison Office in the Republic of Moldova did not receive any request or question (..), the information is false. Our mission is to facilitate the political dialogue and practical cooperation between NATO and the Republic of Moldova".

No evidence given that the US would destroy Moldova's economy. Since 1992, the United States has provided over $1.4 billion in assistance to Moldova.  Moldova’s $262 million, 5-year Millennium Challenge Corporation compact for economic development and investment projects in irrigation infrastructure, high-value agricultural production, and road rehabilitation ended in 2015.
