US is now trying to set up the colour revolutions matrix ahead of Russia’s 2018 Presidential elections. They probe our weaknesses and then they start to buy bloggers and buy [social media] communities. Take Greenpeace for example. They work everywhere else but not in the US.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. Greenpeace is actively campaigning in the US and has recently published on its websites articles with headlines like "A Letter From Florida to the Nation: Climate Denial Is Killing Us" and "Donald Trump’s ‘War on Regulations’ Is Really a War on Working Class People".

Thousands of Polish Christians prayed against the islamisation of Europe

Thousands of Polish Christians formed a human chain on the country’s border and prayed against the islamisation of Europe. As reported by the news portal, on October 7, on the borderlands of Poland, thousands of Polish citizens gathered to celebrate the victory of Christian Kingdoms’ Coalition over the Ottoman Empire and prayed against the islamisation of Europe.

Disproof

On October 7, Polish Catholics marched along the country's borderline and prayed for the deliverance of Poland and the world. This large-scale event started with the morning mass and lasted for about 2 hours. Members of the clergy were also present at the site, conducting liturgy and popular prayer. The event was interpreted in various fashions; part of the society saw the march as a protest against Islam and migrants. However, the organizers declare that the intent of the gathering was to pray for pray for peace in Poland and across the globe and not against any particular group of people. The choice of the Polish border as the venue for meeting was to symbolically express the desire of Polish Catholics to encompass the world with prayer.
