Disinfo: Biden won the election due to serious violations

Summary

The American electoral system was established with one goal, which is to strengthen the two-party system, by which the struggle for administrative influence in the country is fought. This time, the Republicans lost the fight. And the fact that serious violations were committed in a number of major states, shifting the result sharply in the direction of Joe Biden, and the inability to prevent them, indicates that the Democrats won this internal struggle. But the most important thing is that the “smell” of Biden’s victory will haunt him for the four years. The scale of electoral violations is so great that it will chase him anywhere.

Disproof

The story is part of an emerging pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative seeking to delegitimise the conduct and results of the 2020 US Presidential election.

So far no evidence of massive fraud has been presented except rumours. Several reliable sources debunked the massive fraud claims: the BBC, The Guardian, the New York Times, Forbes, Le Monde.

In addition, in its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was "competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

See similar cases that there was massive fraud in the 2020 US presidential elections, that two million dead people voted for Biden, and five facts that prove the US elections were rigged.

This disinformation message appeared in the same article as the claim that there is no evidence of Trump collusion with Russia.

NATO uses “Russian threat” to justify its actions

NATO is increasing its military presence near the Russian border. The Alliance is using the “Russian threat” to justify this actions. The Baltic States are also using the “Russian threat”. They are concluding high-cost security agreements with the US and are deploying NATO military contingents in their territories.

Moscow has said many times that it has no plans to attack any country. NATO knows it.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, portraying NATO as having a belligerent agenda against Russia and claiming that the “Russian threat” is a false idea.

NATO does not seek confrontation with Russia. The Alliance indicated this position in the Brussels Summit Declaration in 2018. However, this declaration concludes that “Russia’s aggressive actions, including the threat and use of force to attain political goals, challenge the Alliance and are undermining Euro-Atlantic security and the rules-based international order”.

Soros' NGOs have brought Ukraine to the complete loss of sovereignty

The work of the Soros Foundation and some other Western organisations can be equated with the activities of the special services of foreign states. This is part of a hybrid war of the collective West against the countries of the post-Soviet space. In Ukraine, Soros’s scheme is already in effect at all levels. In Armenia, Soros’s projects have not yet reached the final stage of implementation, at which one can state a complete loss of sovereignty. But Ukraine is a vivid example of how Soros NGOs have brought the country “to the brink”.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about George Soros.

Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected President and parliament. You can find here numerous disinformation cases on Ukraine being under foreign control.

Biden will have no legitimacy because frauds were massive in US presidential elections

Donald Trump did not accept the transition. He agreed to pay the transition funds but he did not give up contesting. And he is right to contest the election since massive fraud took place.

A president who claims to rule the country on the basis of massive fraud is a president who has no legitimacy. A lot of people in the United States will continue to challenge the legitimacy of a hypothetical Biden administration. If Donald Trump accepted this it is for a very clear reason that he announces in his press release: Emily Murphy who is in charge of this has suffered threats, multiple threats. So he [Trump] preferred that the threats stop. When you threaten someone in an administration, you behave in an unworthy manner. And it wasn’t just there that there were threats. There is a very murky situation right now in the United States and it’s part of this very murky situation.

Disproof

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

In its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was "competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).
