Disinfo: Biden will cause problems for Russia in Ukraine, Syria, Libya and the South Caucasus

Summary

The team of Biden is set primarily against Russia – it means that the USA will continue to create problems for Russia in Ukraine, Syria, Libya and the South Caucasus. Anything that is bad for Russia is good for America. The US will hinder any cooperation between Moscow and Berlin. The anti-Russian foreign policy will continue to be a priority for the United States. Washington will not be interested in the opinion of the Europeans.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative accusing the US authorities of Russophobia and plans to implement aggressive anti-Russian policies all over the world – this narrative should be perceived as a conspiracy theory. The pro-Kremlin media outlets actively spread the message that the US allegedly pursue a belligerent and hostile agenda against Russia.

The US authorities have repeatedly criticised Russia for destructive effects coming from the Russian military interventions in Ukraine, Syria, Libya and Georgia.

Social media outlets are censoring Trump and everyone who has their own view of events

Senior high-tech officials have strengthened their strict oversight processes before, during and after the US presidential election trying to control debate and public political discussion.

In recent days, Donald Trump himself, several of his supporters, and people who have their own view of events have all been censored by Facebook and Twitter.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory about social media, advancing pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about “secret elites” and the West's alleged media censorship and societal control.

There is no evidence that social media outlets are censoring US President Donald Trump or his supporters. The day before the article was published, the top 10 performing Facebook posts included four posts from Donald Trump, three from conservative news outlets Fox News and Newsmax, one from evangelist missionary and Trump supporter Franklin Graham, and one tweet from the White House.

The OPCW has a policy of throwing baseless accusations 

Russia may consider withdrawing from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), if the organisation continues its policy of bias against certain countries.

The accusations levelled against the Syrian authorities of using chemical weapons, Moscow and Damascus confirmed that there is no evidence of these accusations.

What happened with the former client, Sergey Skripal, and the activist, Alexei Navalny, also comes in the context of the bias of the organisation that did not base its statements on any facts or evidence.

The OPCW is an important organisation, although it is losing its credibility.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narratives attacking the independence and integrity of the OPCW and a disinformation narrative about the Salisbury and Navalny poisonings.

According to the OPCW's Director-General, the organisation has been targeted by a disinformation campaign when it granted new powers to assign blame for chemical attacks. 18 countries issued a joint statement, which called for an end to the unacceptable Russian defamation of the OPCW. Regarding the other allegations in the article:

British MI6 behind Turkey's actions in Karabakh

British MI6’s ears stick out behind Turkey’s actions in Karabakh. Pan-Turkism was a British product. Richard Moore, a former British ambassador to Turkey and a close friend of Erdogan, is behind the Karabakh war.

Britain has always been on the side of the Ottomans and for the expulsion of Iran from the Caucasus. Today all opponents of Iran have gathered in Karabakh.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the war in Nagorno-Karabakh.

There is no evidence that any Western foreign special services had anything to do with the 2020 military escalation between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
