DISINFO: Second civil war began in the USA
America has lost its landmarks, and a country that has lost its landmarks begins to distort and destroy its past. The second Civil War in the United States actually began.
Part of recurring pro-Kremlin false messaging about a civil war in the US, earlier seen in relation with the migration crisis in the EU, aiming to show an imminent collapse of a certain country. The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death ofGeorge Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on 25 May 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the US. Despite high polarisation in the US, the unrest is not a civil war. The situation was very tense and protests spread to all 50 states of the country, top military officials and police officers worked to de-escalate the situation and demonstrations became largely peaceful. However, also violent confrontation continues. See more examples of pro-Kremlin disinformation about theracial justice protests in the US.
