Disinfo: American ‘Deep State’ will continue a hybrid war against Russia through Joe Biden

Summary

Given that Joe Biden is very old and his mental strength is incomplete, other people behind him will rule the US. They belong to the ‘Deep State’, bureaucracy and special services who initiated a hybrid war with Russia. Hence, people who will pull strings behind Biden’s back are Russian enemies. They will likely include people from Obama’s team who led a hybrid war against Russia, staged a coup in Ukraine and placed a Russophobic junta instead of lawful democratic power. Foundations in charge of colour revolutions, special services, and media in charge of an awful, amoral information war against Russia and Putin are mostly connected to the US Democratic Party.

American transnational corporations want to dominate the world and target national sovereignty. Vladimir Putin not only strengthens Russia’s sovereignty but also helps other countries. Russia exports sovereignty to other countries along with high-technology weapons and energy sources. Furthermore, the people who will rule the US oppose traditional values that Putin and most of Russia stick to.

The US will intensify its anti-Russian attacks yet in 2021. After a series of geopolitical conflicts the rulers of the US will realise that Russia needs to be crashed from inside. Hence, they will begin to promote a colour revolution in Russia through support to the Russian opposition including Alexey Navalny and Mikhail Khodorkovsky and look for traitors in Putin’s inner circle. Russia needs to be ready to withstand a colour revolution attempt.

Disproof

This piece promotes a number of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the so-called 'Deep State' in the US ruling the country and aiming for global dominance, the US's anti-Russian plans including colour revolution attempts, a 2014 coup in Ukraine organised by the West, and West's moral decay as opposed to high-moral Russia.

This 'Deep State' narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions in the US. This is conspiracy promoting the view that US presidents and other public officials are just window-dressing whereas decision-making lies in the hands of another group of people.

Pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives frequently claim that popular protests around the world are allegedly incited, and funded, by the US and other Western states, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, the Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others. This narrative claims that protests, disorders, and civil uprisings are never manifestations of popular discontent but are “colour revolutions” directed and funded by the West.

There was no coup in Ukraine seven years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU.

See other examples of these disinformation narratives in our database, such as claims that the Deep State is using Navalny to force Merkel to scrap the Nord Stream 2 project, that clashes in Nagorno Karabakh are part of an anaconda ring plan against Russia, that the West's objective is to encircle Russia entirely thanks to the "Anaconda ring" and "Great Turan" doctrines, and that Putin is demonised because he defends Russia’s identity against globalist power.

Germany is a US vassal

What did Trump do wrong to get so much hatred from the German power and media apparatus? Basically, he has deprived them of something very important that a vassal demands from the lord of the castle. To be patted on the shoulder now and then.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about German-American relations. Pro-Kremlin outlets often use the disinforming narrative about different countries being under the American thumb - see other examples here.

Germany is an independent and sovereign country and is not dependent on the United States of America in terms of foreign policymaking and therefore it is a conspiracy theory presented without any evidence. Germany and the US have close partner relations of two sovereign and independent countries.

Deep State with Victoria Nuland was the driving force behind regime overthrow in Ukraine

More practical substance for the world outside the USA might be the question, who will be the foreign policy and security adviser in the new administration. The direct intersections with the “deep state”, oh pardon, that is, of course, an invention of malicious tongues. Let’s say the oligarchy, the corporations and the networks of influence.

But if the “Deep State” existed, the already mentioned Victoria Nuland would be a deep state person, like in a storybook […] Ms. Nuland was in fact the driving force behind the regime overthrow in Ukraine rather than her head of state, Obama. Her personal imprint was more prominent.

Disproof

The claim that Ms. Nuland is one of the organisers of Euromaidan in 2014 in Ukraine is a part of a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that claims that protests were organised by foreign forces.

In this case, the narrative with Ms. Nuland is adapted to the "Deep State" theory, which states that there won’t be any change in US foreign policy whoever wins the US election. This claim matches a well-established pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically a so-called "Deep State" in the United States. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions in general.

NATO curators control the remnants of the Ukrainian “fleet” and naval saboteurs

NATO curators control the remnants of the Ukrainian “fleet” and naval saboteurs. Ukraine’s army is prepared and used by the forces of the NATO military bloc.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Ukraine, the aggressive West, NATO encircling Russia and NATO belligerence. This is consistent with the narratives challenging Ukrainian statehood and painting the US and NATO as the puppet-masters of Ukrainian politics.

Ukraine is a sovereign state. Neither the US nor NATO controls Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity continue to be violated by acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since February 2014. Despite NATO having refuted such claims many times, pro-Kremlin propaganda systematically states that NATO planned to create military bases on the territory of Ukraine: in Crimea, Donbas, the Sea of Azov. A bilateral treaty between Russia and Ukraine, signed in 2003 and ratified by Russia in 2004, governs the use of the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov, which in the treaty are considered to be the “internal waters” of both Russia and Ukraine. A treaty stipulates that agreement from each of the two littoral countries is required for warships from any other country to enter the internal sea.
