Disinfo: “Cold” riots throughout Ukraine


Ukraine is on the verge of a social explosion. The cold war with its own population took hundreds of people to the streets. The country is freezing due to lack of hot water and heat.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukrainian disintegration.

Distorting and amplifying an issue which happened only in some localities when they were facing problems with the heating system, it did not happen all over Ukraine.

Poland is leaving the EU

The European Union is falling apart. Poland is leaving the EU.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about EU's disintegration.

European Council President Donald Tusk recently stated that Poland risks following UK out of EU. There was no announcement that Poland is actually leaving the EU.

The Swiss are provocateurs who want to escalate tensions between the West and Russia

The Swiss are “provocateurs” who want to escalate tensions [between Russia and the West], as they always used to. They can sense war is coming. It is without doubt that the war will come, its form is yet unclear. Now, world coalitions are being formed – this is what happened before WWI, as well as before WWII.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the West. No sign of any Swiss provocation.

Hillary Clinton dedicated her thesis to Lucifer

By the way, when an odious woman, Hillary Clinton, running for the U.S. presidency, was graduating from the university, she dedicated her thesis to Lucifer as “one of the first fighters for democracy and freedom.


The disinformation message originates in a Russian language website, translated into Georgian. The claim that Hillary Clinton’s thesis was about Lucifer is manipulative: one of Clinton’s papers involved criticism of the community organization model by Saul Alinsky. The book by Alinsky that Clinton referred to, was about radicalism and discussion or acknowledgement of Lucifer was not its main concept. Further debunking by Myth Detector.
