Disinfo: Biden will become the second “fake president” after Kennedy

Summary

Biden will become the second “fake president” after Kennedy. As Giuliani recalled, comparing Joe Biden with John Kennedy. Both are Democrats, both are Catholics, but in the picture of the lawyer’s world, one of the leaders most beloved by the nation was primarily a “fake president,” that is, he won the election as a result of fraud and collusion.

Disproof

Disinformation message about the US in the context of the US 2020 presidential election.

There is no evidence that Joe Biden won the presidential election through fraud and collusion. The outlet is uncritically repeating a claim, without giving space for other views.

British news agency Reuters is describing the situation.

The November 3rd election was, according to US national bodies, the most secure election in the history of the United States. Election observer organisation ODIHR - where Russia is a member - describes the election as "competitive and well managed despite legal uncertainties and
logistical challenges".

The West uses neo-Nazis to destabilise Russia and its neighbouring states

The West uses neo-Nazis for its own purposes in order to shake the situation along the perimeter of Russian borders and destabilise its neighbouring states. The West diligently avoids condemning Nazism and attempts to rehabilitate it because it itself indulges it. In a number of regimes in the European space, especially after the colour revolutions sponsored by the West, crimes against humanity are being committed and outspoken neo-Nazis are in power. The main producer of these processes is the United States and the main point where war crimes are committed today is Ukraine.

Moreover, neo-fascist formations are actively used in the Baltic countries to consolidate the general policy of violent de-Russification. Neo-Nazism is used to create Russophobic regimes along the perimeter of Russia and thereby isolate Russia and consolidate its weak state, which it had in the 90s.

Disproof

This is a mixture of pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the West waging war on Russia, linking Ukraine and Baltic States to Fascism and Nazism and promoting the messages about the so-called "colour revolutions".

The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy. Far-right groups enjoyed a very limited presence during the Euromaidan itself and had poor results in the 2014 presidential and parliamentary elections. In the 2019 election, far-right candidates fell short of the 5% minimum guaranteeing entry into parliament.

The USSR was not in any way involved in the start of WWII

We can see a revision [of history] today, as the European Parliament passed a resolution claiming that USSR is responsible for the start of WWII just like Nazi Germany. However, the Nuremberg Tribunal showed who was really responsible.

The lessons of Nuremberg are forgotten because the US imagines itself to be the world’s police and an exceptional nation, which is in accordance with Hitler’s ideas about German superiority and predisposition to govern others.

The US does not want to point at Nuremberg because even though the main aggressors were Nazis, the West is also partly responsible for pushing Germany into the hands of the Soviet Union.

Disproof

Disinformation about World War II is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative, as can be seen here.

The USSR signed a non-aggression agreement with Nazi Germany on 23 August 1939, which is called the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. This pact included a secret protocol about the division of the “spheres of interest,” dividing Poland and the Baltic States between the two countries in the event of “territorial-political reorganization.”

Assisted by the Polish authorities, the US is undertaking a soft occupation of Eastern Europe

The US continues pushing its interests in Europe through vassal-like economic and military alliances. Earlier Washington and Warsaw agreed to relocate about 1,000 US soldiers from Germany to Poland. In exchange for mythical security guarantees, the US is hanging huge costs for purchasing American military equipment over Poland and the Baltic states. De facto a ‘soft occupation’ of Eastern Europe by the US is going on, where Polish political and military establishment serves as a tool and US’s loyal assistant.

Disproof

This article contains recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the vassal status of Poland and the Baltic states and the US presence in Europe. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the Polish political establishment of being the US's tool and questions the US's security commitments towards European allies.

Poland and the Baltic states are independent states, which shape their own foreign and domestic policies. NATO's presence in the region is at the request of the host nations. NATO has taken defensive and proportionate steps in response to a changed security environment. Following Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine, several NATO member states requested a greater NATO presence in the region. A 2016 Gallup poll found that most people in Allied countries in the Baltic region associate NATO with the protection of their country.
