American astronauts never landed on the Moon

Summary of Disinformation

The landing of US astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the Мoon in 1969 is the largest deception in the history of mankind. Americans have never been on Earth’s satellite, since there is no evidence other than photographs taken in a studio on Earth. There are no stars in the photo and the US flag is waving, although there is no atmosphere on the Moon. Also there are no traces of the landing of the ship on the satellite. Even Buzz Aldrin himself recently admitted that he had never been on the Moon.

The money allocated for the fake “moon program” was in fact spent on financing the war in Vietnam and the development of the American military industrial complex.

Now Washington and NASA intend to fly to the Moon and even Mars in the same fake way.




Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative based on one of the most common conspiracy theories in the world. There is a substantial amount of evidence that on July 20, 1969, astronauts landed on Earth's satellite for the first time in the history of mankind. Since then, a total of 12 American astronauts have visited the Moon. 

As for the most common "evidence" of conspiracy theorists: there really is no wind on the Moon, and the US flag looks like it is fluttering only because it could not be pulled straight from all sides on a special holder. The video from Moon landing clearly shows that the flag moves only when it is touched by astronauts. Stars are not visible because the photos were taken with a slow shutter speed and only the lightest objects - the astronauts and the ship - fell into the frame. On the surface of the Moon, only small traces of contact between the pillars of Apollo remained, since the force of attraction there is much weaker than that of the Earth, and the landing was soft.

On the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, experts from NASA posted a three-hour recording of the landing of the ship on the surface of Earth's satellite. On the frames it is perfectly visible how the astronauts work on the surface of the moon. You can also see photo panoramas from the Moon, created for the anniversary of the Moon landing. NASA experts connected images from the landing sites of all the missions of Apollo, which landed on Earth's satellite.

Buzz Aldrin never said that he hadn't been on the Moon. His words were taken out of context. In 2018, a girl asked Aldrin about why the lunar program was discontinued after 1972. In the full, unedited version of the interview, Aldrin mentions that he visited the Moon, saying that he and Armstrong achieved what the President wanted and that the world is proud of what he did (time 07:10-09:10).
