Disinfo: Ahead of the Presidential Elections Poroshenko's Junta in Ukraine Must Report to their US Masters

Summary

Ahead of the presidential elections Poroshenko’s junta in Ukraine must report on what they achieved to their masters – the US. With destroyed economy and corruption they have nothing to present. The only explanation they have for the failure is the war with the Russians. Currently, the Americans do not know whom to bet for in the elections, as there are only bandits and criminals among the candidates. Severing ties with Russia makes Poroshenko look good before his masters in the USA.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the election in Ukraine. The disinformation messages were a reaction to the announcement of the Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine, that the country is prepared to terminate additional 50 treaties with Russia.

ISIS Serves the American Interests

The United States will probably use the Manbij terror attack that took place in the north of Syria recently as a pretext not to withdraw their troops, despite president Donald Trump’s announcement. ISIS serves certain American interests.

Disproof

No evidence given. No proof of ISIS advancing the interest of the US. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation that the US is supporting terrorist and ISIS in Syria.

EU is Collapsing

The United Kingdom is leaving the EU, as the membership proved not to be beneficial. The European Union and NATO, who used to be against the former Soviet Union, are now collapsing.

Disproof

Concerning the statement that the EU is collapsing, in reaction to the June 23rd 2016 referendum on leaving the EU, President Tusk, President Juncker, President Schulz and Netherlands Prime Minister Rutte made a joint statement: "In a free and democratic process, the British people have expressed their wish to leave the European Union. We regret this decision but respect it." Furthermore, the heads of state of the remaining 27 EU countries, stated “We are determined to remain united and work in the framework of the EU to deal with the challenges of the 21st century and find solutions in the interest of our nations and peoples," after the informal meeting on 29th of June 2016.

The US and Europe support Jihadist forces in Syria

For the past eight years, the US and Europe, have been supporting Jihadist forces in Syria in order to topple the Assad regime. These forces are responsible for over 400,000 deaths in the country. Russian intervention in Syria, on the other hand, is restoring peace to the country.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that the West supports terrorist organizations in Syria [Daesh and Al Nusra]. There is no evidence that US, NATO or EU have supported Daesh or other Jihadist groups in Syria. The US-led military campaign in Syria and Iraq has clearly targeted Daesh. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attributing massacres of civilian population in Syria to anti-Assad opposition groups. At the same time, no responsibility attributed to the Assad regime and Russian forces. Against this background, there is ample evidence that the Syrian regime is responsible for numerous massacres, bombings and chemical attacks on civilians in Syria. Russian airstrikes on hospitals, water treatment plants and mosques [causing hundreds of civilian deaths] have also been documented. Moreover, pro-Kremlin media often refer to Russian military intervention in Syria as a “war on terrorism” aimed at destroying Daesh. In reality, Russia’s military action has mostly concentrated on targeting the non-Daesh opposition forces, while a relatively low proportion of Russian airstrikes in Syria have targeted Daesh or other al-Qaeda-linked groups.
