America needs blood in Hong Kong to impose sanctions against China

Summary

Protests in Hong Kong are following the Maidan scenario: with the same technologies, crowd management and same hatred of the authorities that is stoked by the Americans. America needs blood and victims in Hong Kong, in order to impose sanctions against China and to weaken it in the ongoing trade war.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory based on a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about protests in Hong Kong and US orchestrating color revolutions. 

The Hong Kong protests began in June 2019 because of a controversial extradition law that would allow for the transfer of suspects to face trial on the Chinese mainland.

The Climate Movement is distracting millions from the real threats of human life on Planet Earth

While there is a significant grassroots movement of young activists, the CO2 Climate Consensus has distracted millions of people from an understanding of the broader and ongoing threats to human life on Planet Earth. These climate strikes are taking place at a time of crisis, largely marked by US threats to wage war on Iran. The use of tactical nuclear weapons against Iran is contemplated. Activists are often misled by those who fund the campaign including Rockefeller et al, as well as by the organizers and the public relations operatives involving Hollywood celebrities, et al.

In a bitter irony, the movement against capitalism is funded by capitalism. It’s called “manufactured dissent”.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence.

Climate change is a scientific fact. Humans are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth's temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rain-forests and farming livestock. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming. Preventing dangerous consequences of the climate change is the  key priority for the EU. 

Hybrid troops in Donbas did not kill the famous opera singer, but a terrorist

The speech of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, at the 74th session of the UN General Assembly was propaganda, he lied about the murder of opera singer Vasyl Slipak in the Donbas. The hybrid troops did not kill the famous opera singer, but eliminated the terrorist, who killed civilians.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about there being a civil war in Ukraine, and that terrorists, nationalists from the Right Sector and militants are killing civilians in Donbas. The Ukrainian army are not terrorists

In his speech to the General Assembly, President of Ukraine Zelenskyy reminded the world of Russian aggression in Ukraine and stressed that no one can feel safe while there is a war in Europe. The President also showed a sniper bullet, similar to the one that killed Vasyl Slipak (also known as Wassyl Slipak), who fought in the Donbas on the Ukrainian side (see video from 02:33). 

EP resolution is an ideological weapon against Russia

The claim that Communism and Nazism were similar – stressed in the recent EU Parliament resolution – is an EU ideological weapon against Russia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that the recognition and denunciation of Stalinist crimes against humanity are Western anti-Russian propaganda.

The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stresses the vital importance of remembering victims of totalitarian and authoritarian regimes - and of raising awareness of the crimes committed by Communist and Nazi regimes - for the unity of Europe and for building European resilience against modern external threats.
