DISINFO: Events in Haiti are “planned chaos” to execute foreign intervention
Everything that is taking place in Haiti is “planned chaos” to be able to execute an international intervention.
Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence, aiming to support a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about an imperialist West.
UN Secretary General António Guterres called on 10 October 2022 for ‘enhanced security support’ for Haiti and ‘a rapid action force” to help the country’s government to deal with increasing instability fuelled by gang violence. This call was made days after Haitian interim prime minister Ariel Henry had requested a foreign armed intervention to stabilize the country. As a result, the United States drafted a United Nations Security Council resolution encouraging the “immediate deployment of a multinational rapid action force” to Haiti, according to The Miami Herald. The measure led to violent protests and was rejected by some civil society groups and humanitarian organisations. However, nothing suggests any international hand behind destabilising events in Haiti. Actually, the situation of instability was largely created by violent armed gangs that have been a serious problem in the country for a long time, including the group of Jimmy “Barbecue” Cherizier, whose G9 gang confederation blocked the so-called Varreux fuel terminal in late September. These actions have “directly contributed to the economic paralysis and humanitarian crisis in Haiti”, according to a UN Security Council resolution drafted by Mexico and the US to impose sanctions on Cherizier and other gang members.
Pro-Kremlin outlets have been spreading disinformation for a long time about the role of the international community in Haiti, including multiple claims that the US and Colombian governments were directly involved in the murder of Haitian president Jovenel Moïse.
