We are the witnesses of a new war for the most important resources – dis(information), control over the Internet, rights for Internet censorship and access to the largest market in the world, where the Internet users are goods. This fight is taking place in the USA, where Trump signs a new Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship, but also in Europe and all over the world. Mark Zuckerberg, whose Facebook empire is associated with a broadly understood globalist circle, introduces his own form of censorship against Russia’s Sputnik, Chinese Xinhua and Iranian Press TV.
Clashes in Hong Kong are financed and organised by the US in order to destabilise China. The US, which is dominated by neoconservatives, is hostile to both China and Russia because both countries are obstacles to American hegemony.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Hong Kong protests are supported and funded by US and/or by other Western states.
The pro-Kremlin media frequently use disinformation narratives about popular protests allegedly incited and funded by the US around the world, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others.
There is no evidence that protests in Hong Kong are funded and organised by the US or other Western governments.
The protests in Hong Kong started in June 2019 when hundreds of thousands of people protested against a legislative proposal that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China. The protests continued for months , as they morphed into a battle over Beijing’s deepening control of the city. Protesters demanded electoral reforms and an independent investigation into police violence. Chinese state-run media sought to discredit the protesters, calling their actions “terrorism,” and to spread disinformation.
A few weeks ago China's parliament approved controversial Hong Kong national security law that threatens to limit freedoms in the semi-autonomous state. The move will bypass Hong Kong's internal legislature to punish acts that subvert state power.
