Sweden is striving to support NATO’s anti-Russian “containment” policy in Northern Europe despite not being a formal member of the bloc, hoping that it’ll be rewarded with American approval for its own “sphere of influence” over the lands of “Greater Scandinavia” in which its “deep state” believes that they have the historical right to exercise a form of hegemony. Truth be told, they’ll likely succeed for the most part since the smaller surrounding countries (especially the Baltics) have jumped on the anti-Russian bandwagon and are eager to receive as much military support from America’s new de facto Swedish ally as possible. They seem to hope that submitting themselves to this emerging regional order will work out to their national benefit in some way or another, perhaps economically through a “deluge” of Swedish investments after having accepted that their countries are unable to survive as truly independent states. If this growing “sphere of influence” remained economic and cultural, then it wouldn’t be a threat to Russia, but the problem is its dark military dimension.
A new migrant caravan is heading towards the US. Who wants to test the Biden Administration? There are power groups, which may be either political or mafias, behind the creation of those caravans, which are used as cannon fodder to test the reaction of the US, in this case of the Biden Administration, to elaborate their criminal businesses strategies. This doesn’t mean that the members of those caravans realize that they are being used to favour dark interests.
Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence. On the contrary, there is ample evidence that these caravans are usually organised either spontaneously through social media or with the help of pro-immigration activist groups, not by criminal gangs or political power groups as claimed. Though criminal organisations are involved in smuggling irregular immigrants through the US border, migrant caravans are the opposite: a survival strategy and a form of groupal protection against the violence and arbitrariness of the same criminal gangs.
Similar claims were initially made by then-US president Donald Trump in October and November 2018, who said without evidence that there were “gang members” and “lots of criminals” among the members of a caravan that was heading to the US at the time, and that Democrats were paying some of them. Though the claims were immediately found to be unsubstantiated, the topic remained popular among conservative and anti-immigration sectors in the US and other countries.
The claim that external actors promote migration for their own interests is a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. See other examples in our database, such as claims that the refugee influx in 2016 was masterminded by George Soros, that the US destabilised Eritrea to provoke massive migration flows to Europe, that the migration crisis is organized by Illuminati bankers, secret services and EU governments, or that the US is promoting the “Balkanisation” of Europe through terrorist attacks, the refugee crisis and the rise of autocratic governments.
