Disinfo: Anti-Russian rhetoric in Belarus has increased

Summary

Anti-Russian rhetoric in Belarus has increased. Moreover, Belarus is being artificially turned away from Russians, with the final goal being to turn these Russians into Poles. Furthermore, Belarus will face similar problems that Poland and other post-socialist states encountered in 2008, i.e. a post-industrial crisis.

Disproof

Unfounded assumptions about Belarus, intented to disqualify the country as sovereign. As regards the Polish post-industrial crisis, Poland never had an economic crisis in the aftermath of the 2007-2008 global crisis, with its GDP PPP per capita constantly growing since 1992. bit.ly/2fIGj11,

The US presidential elections will be rigged

The US presidential elections will be rigged.

Disproof

Experts say that voter fraud simply does not exist in America at a scale large enough to rig an election. American elections have so many overlapping layers of oversight that experts say manipulating the results would be close to impossible. More details here, here and here.

Russians and Ukrainians are a single nation

Russians and Ukrainians are a single nation. Part of this nation wants to become members of a sect, and Russia is trying to save it from this sect.

Disproof

Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc.
