Disinfo: Biden wants to legalise the sale of drugs in Ukraine

Summary

Joe Biden wants to legalise drug trafficking in Ukraine. It is easy to see that different countries began to “support” the legalisation of drugs after they organised Maidans and replaced the government with politicians loyal to the West. Ukraine, as conceived by external curators, should become a pioneer in the legalisation of marijuana.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Joe Biden and Ukraine. No evidence is given.

This misleading claim stems from the fact that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy proposed this question as part of a nationwide poll to be held on 25 October 2020: "Do you support the legalisation of cannabis for medical purposes - to reduce pain in critically ill patients?"

The office of the President of Ukraine stressed that they are talking only about medical drugs that are needed by people experiencing severe systemic pain, extreme anxiety, and depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, including after fighting at the front in the war.

Today in Ukraine there are various types of liability - administrative and criminal - in the framework of combating illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors, and their usage.

Russia is the main target of the Jewish Masonic globalist forces who are behind the war

Russia is the main target of the Jewish-Masonic globalist forces who are behind the current war in Nagorno-Karabakh. Turkey and Azerbaijan are on the way to world conquest. The Azeri-Turkish military-political alliance, steadfastly implementing the programme set behind it by the Jewish-Masonic globalist forces, resorted to another provocation, aiming to involve first the Republic of Armenia and then the Russian Federation in the war.

If they “solve” the Russian issue, consider the problems of China and Iran solved.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory framing Russia as the ultimate target of international events.

Disinformation narratives about the "deep state" are widespread, they promote the narrative about a global elite secretly ruling the world. In most cases, the “deep state” is referred to as American elites, who promote aggressive wars and prevent US reconciliation with Russia. The idea of a "deep state" has always been very popular among conspiracy theorists.
