US sabotages Putin’s peace efforts in Ukraine

The Trump regime has sabotaged Putin’s peace efforts in Syria, Iran, Ukraine, and North Korea. [–] US government officials, the entirety of the US media, and Washington’s British and French vassals have consistently blamed false flag chemical attacks, and in the case of Douma a fake news chemical attack that has been certified not to have taken place, on Assad. [–] Washington plan to use its jihadists to begin destabilising Russia and China

Disproof

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation and conspiracies. Russia provoked a war in Ukraine and continues to support and weapon pro-Russian separatists.

For Douma attack:

Latvian Army shot at civilians in January 1991

Latvian Army General Raimonds Graube carried out a provocation by shooting at civilians in January of 1991, just as in 2014 in Ukraine on Maidan where there were unknown snipers who fired on civilians. A movie on the topic shows how pseudo-revolutions are organized.

Disproof

As shown by DFRLab, the aim of the movie appears to be to resurface old allegations of violence during Latvia’s transition to independence and away from the Soviet Union.

The filmmakers of the documentary include Andrey Tatarchuk, a journalist with indirectly Kremlin-financed Baltnews.lv, and a Russian artist from Estonia named Sergey Chetvertnoy. Dmitry Yermolaev, the Editor in Chief of the official Kremlin media outlet Rosiyskie Vesti Latvian edition accused two Latvian military officers of shooting at civilians. In 2005, the Latvian Constitution Protection Bureau (SAB) blacklisted Yermolaev as a Russian intelligence officer.

Stalin Awarded the Territory of South Ossetia to Georgia

The territory of South Ossetia was awarded to Georgia by Stalin, ignoring the will of South Ossetians.

Disproof

Historical revisionism. The territory of the so-called South Ossetia has never been outside Georgia’s jurisdiction. Under the Treaty of Moscow of 7 May 1920, Russia recognized Georgia’s independence. Under the treaty, the territory at stake was in Georgia’s jurisdiction. Accordingly, in 1922, Stalin could not possibly award additionally another territory to Georgia.
