Britan is under the thumb of the United States

Summary of Disinformation

Bank of England refused to give Nicolas Maduro 1,1 billion in gold and thus Britain and its central bank have shown themselves to be under the thumb of the United States.

Disproof

Recurring disinfo narrative about the US orchestrating different international events. For example, according to pro-Kremlin media, the thumb of the US is so large that it covers German foreign policy, German media, European Parliament and Russia's accordance with the INF Treaty.

According to Sir Alan Duncan, minister of the Americas, the refusal to give gold to Maduro was a decision for the Bank to make: "The Bank of England holds a significant amount of Venezuela's gold. This is a decision for the Bank of England, not the government," he said. "No doubt they will take into account when they do the fact that a large number of countries across the world are now questioning the legitimacy of Nicolas Maduro and recognising that of Juan Guaido."
