Disinfo: According to MI6 and CIA internal documents, Alexei Navalny had…

Summary

According to MI6 and CIA internal documents, Alexei Navalny had been recruited to work for MI6 by UK hedge fund manager Bill Browder. His task is to carry out operation “Quake” which aims to undermine the existing constitutional order of the Russian Federation. He is being paid handsomely for his services via the Moscow Helsinki Group (MHG) human rights organisation.

Disproof

The documents on which these accusations are based are confirmed to be fake. Navalny has dismissed the accusations as "fantasy" and "deliberate slander" and has said he will sue Rossiya 1 which ran a 15-minute report about the "case". MHG head Lyudmila Alekseyeva said the group had never given money to Mr Navalny (bbc.in/20BShpQ), .

The process of disintegration has already begun in Ukraine: Transcacarpathia oblast council is demanding autonomy. // The US has refused to continue supporting president Poroshenko. // Ukrainians are part of the Russian world. // There was coup in Kyiv.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The Transcarpathian regional council has dismissed this claim as a fake (bit.ly/1SHO4Ls), . // The United States is firmly committed to supporting Ukraine as it works to establish security and stability, respond to humanitarian and reconstruction needs, conduct democratic elections and carry out constitutional reforms, restore its economy, and combat corruption (1.usa.gov/1qCWSfd), . // Ukraine is a sovereign nation. // Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), .
