US Secret Service is behind the terror attack in New Zealand

US Secret service is behind the terror attack in New Zealand.

The terror attack in New Zealand is a cover up of a real global conflict – the trade war between the US and China. China is the largest trading partner of Australia and New Zealand. Americans are worried because more Chinese capital might mean the access to the “Five eyes” intelligence network. That is why they are trying to make New Zealand unattractive for Chinese investments by building a racial barrier.



Conspiracy theory with no evidence.

The investigation into the Christchurch terror attack on March 15, 2019 is ongoing, with Australian citizen identified as the main suspect in the shooting.

US promises loans to Belarus only if the opposition controlled by the West gets 45% of votes in the parliament

Washington and London press President Aleksandr Lukashenko to conduct a political reform, consisting in the opposition, controlled by the West, receiving at least 45% votes in the parliament. Lukashenko would have 30% of seats in the parliament and the remaining ones will be given to marginal parties, including 2% for the quickly created pro-Russian ones. Only then would the US promise loans to Belarus.


No evidence given. No evidence that that such negotiations are taking place between Lukashenko and the US and British authorities. The constitutional reform in Belarus is now under discussion.

This story is part of the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West trying to “buy” Belarus and remove it from Russian sphere of influence.
