Disinfo: CIA and MI6 staged the coup in Armenia

Summary

There are indisputable facts confirming the truth that the special services of the Potomac Coast (CIA), the foggy Albion (MI6), and their Turkish military-political agents staged a coup in Armenia in April-May 2018.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative painting all manifestations of popular discontent in the region as colour revolutions.

This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, especially the former Soviet republics, as West-funded "coups" aimed to bring anti-Russian forces into power.

There was no coup d'état in 2018 in Armenia, but peaceful protests of hundreds of thousands of people in response to Serzh Sargsyan's third consecutive term as the country’s prime minister and former president for a decade. Sargsyan resigned in response to overwhelming opposition pressure.

The disinformation narrative has been applied, among others, to reports about protests in Georgia, Ukraine, Czechia, Bulgaria, and Belarus with the aim to portray the West or Western special services as aggressive actors constantly preparing new coups.

This narrative also consistently appears in articles promoting the need for Armenia to enter the Union State with Russia.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that global neo-colonialists stage colour revolutions and conquer indigenous national elites, that Armenia is under Soros occupation, that Armenia is under Anglo-American occupation, Armenia is occupied by foreign agent network, that CIA and MI6 changed power in Armenia in order to oust Russia from the region.

Disinfo: The Belarusian history is limited to the history of the Russian world and the USSR

[In terms of history], the Belarusians appear in an even worse situation than the Ukrainians, who can appeal to the history of some groups such as the Zaporozhian Cossacks. The history of Belarus, in the understanding of its citizens, is the history of the local Orthodox population, the Russian world and the Soviet Union.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and imperialism – it promotes the Russian “imperialist” idea that Belarus does not have any other history besides the history of the “Russian World” and the USSR.

The claim that the Belarusians believe that their history is limited to the history of the “Russian World” and the USSR is untrue. The Belarusian historiography counts the beginning of the Belarusian statehood from the Duchy of Polotsk (X century) and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. For several hundred years, Belarus was an integral part of the I Rzeczpospolita (Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth). Only at the end of the XVIII century, the territory of Belarus came under Russian control.

Disinfo: Vaccination is a globalists agenda, a biochemical attack on humanity

Vaccination is a means of biochemical war.

This is a globalist agenda - a biochemical attack on humanity. The establishment of a world government, the dismantling of states.

The goal of the globalists is to reduce the population, a genocide program to eradicate 3 billion people, approved years ago by the US State Department and US President Carter. Globalists are spreading artificial viruses and digital expansion.

Vaccines contain substances that are extremely dangerous for human health. Compulsory vaccination is terrorism.

Disproof

This is a recurring conspiracy theory about the coronavirus pandemic and one of the common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a Deep State or a Shadow Government of Globalists ruling the world and aiming to reduce world population through pandemics and vaccination.

Elements of this disinformation campaign were exposed by independent Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.

Disinfo: The government of Armenia obediently implements globalists' programmes

The government of Armenia, which was brought to power by the globalists in 2018, obediently implements their programmes.

The war in Artsakh, the perversion of the people, the vaccinations, all these are globalist programmes.

Disproof

A recurring narrative promoting the message about global elites secretly ruling the world, changing powers, provoking colour revolutions, and threatening traditional values. The disinfo claim also includes a recurring narrative about vaccinations as a globalists new plot against the world.

The idea of a "deep state" or global elites has always been very popular among conspiracy theorists.
