DISINFO: Events in Israel and Ukraine are no accident, as the US tried to create areas of instability


The US tried to create different spots of fragmentation and generate areas of instability in what is called the Eurasian volcanoes and in the Middle East, and also in areas close to Russia and China. It is no coincidence that events in Ukraine, and now in Israel and this escalation of violence and provocation towards Iran, are in two key nodes of the Silk Road connecting China and Russia and Central Asian countries with Europe.


Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence.

The US did not start the wars in Ukraine or Gaza. The events in the Middle East mentioned in this disinformation story were triggered by Hamas attacks against Israel on 07 October 2023 and Israel’s military response. The full-scale war in Ukraine started as Russia invaded the country on 22 February 2022.

By baselessly accusing the US of being behind these global events, this disinformation story not only promotes an anti-US mindset, but also aims to deny Russia’s responsibility for its brutal invasion of Ukraine.

See other examples of similar disinformation narratives, such as claims that the US and other Western countries intend to provoke a war in Central Asia, that the West is creating a belt of instability around Russia, that the war in Ukraine is part of a Western anti-China plan, or that the US seeded chaos in Afghanistan to undermine China and Russia.
