Disinfo: Events in Myanmar are Western anti-Chinese provocation


It is wrong to designate a political regime in Myanmar as junta because the military just used their constitutional rights to replace the government following the rigged elections just like it had happened in the US.

The news about killed protesters in Myanmar cannot be trusted because it is published by global news agencies. Organisations like the Burma Human Rights Network are based in western countries and feed the public with the information they want.

The tactics used in Myanmar are similar to those previously used in Belarus, Russia, and Hong Kong. It consists of provocations with the aim to incite a civil war. Protesters take hostages or attack them in order to provoke the military, particularly against kids. Protesters attack the armed military personnel and kids must be present in the crowd where such protesters hide. Moreover, protesters make arsons which also amounts to terrorism.

The ultimate target of Myanmar events is China. Everything that has been happening in Myanmar over the last 30 years, was aimed at disruption of Myanmar-China ties.


This publication provides a manipulative view on events in Myanmar and serves as an example of a big conspiracy, which groundlessly attributes groundbreaking events in Belarus, Myanmar, Russia and elsewhere to vicious activities of some western actors.

There is no evidence supporting the claims about events in Myanmar as an anti-Chinese provocation by outside forces. Read our past analysis "Why authoritarians love the concept of the big conspiracy" and a similar earlier disinformation case claiming that London-based headquarters organise colour revolutions in Belarus, Myanmar, Russia, and the US.

There are no good reasons to believe that either recent parliamentary elections in Myanmar or presidential elections in the US were rigged as suggested in the article. Military junta is a political science term used to designate the type of a government led by a committee of military leaders.

As of 10 April 2021, the death toll of 618 civilians killed in Myanmar since the coup was reported by the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners. In his statement of 1 February 2021, the High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell strongly condemned the coup in Myanmar/Burma and called for an immediate and unconditional release of President Win Myint, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, and all others who have been arrested by the Tatmadaw. On 22 February 2021, the Council of the EU adopted conclusions condemning the military coup carried out in Myanmar in the strongest terms, and reiterated its call on the military authorities to immediately and unconditionally release civilian political leaders and all those who have been detained or arrested in connection with the coup.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the global elites prepare a big coup d'etat - "The Great Reset," that the Capitol unrest was a double conspiracy, that assassination of John F. Kennedy and 9/11 attacks were organised by Deep State, that the “Deep State” fights with Trump, and examples of disinformation cases suggesting the US government's involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Disinfo: The Baltic states trade Russophobia for financial assistance of the US and EU

NATO countries are planning to activate their information and hybrid war against Russia. The Baltic states wish to be in the first lines, they do their best to please Washington and Brussels in exchange for new development grants. As the volume of financial assistance to the Baltic states fell down lately, they have to activate Russophobic policies.


This publication promotes recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the economic collapse of the Baltic States, their non-sovereign status, and NATO hostility towards Russia.

The pro-Kremlin media routinely accuse the Baltic States of militarisation and hostility to Russia. All steps to strengthen the security of Baltic states are linked to the aggressive behaviour of Russia toward its neighbours, including the illegal annexation of Crimea and Russian armed aggression in Ukraine.

Disinfo: EU doesn’t want Syrian refugees to return, they have their own goals

We are not even discussing creating conditions for the return of refugees to the country (Syria), nor are we talking about post-conflict reconstruction of the country. Directing EU funds for these purposes will only be possible when the appropriate conditions are in place. In the understanding of Brussels, this means, first and foremost, the removal of Bashar al-Assad from power.

Regarding the current ongoing conference of international donors to Syria, the Europeans do not intend at all to contribute to the recovery of Syria and the return of refugees to the country, but they seek to achieve completely different goals.

The European Union refuses to respond to Russian initiatives to launch an international operation to return refugees back to Syria, where most of its territory no longer living a state of war.


A recurrent narrative praising Russia's superiority and presenting Russia as a guarantor of peace regarding the Syrian war. This narrative aims to discredit the EU's efforts and constant humanitarian aid to Syrians inside and outside the country.

The EU is the leading donor in the international response to the Syrian crisis. The European Union and the United Nations co-chaired the fifth Brussels Conference on “Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region”, which took place in March 2021.

Disinfo: US prepares Ukrainian army for genocide in Donbas

The United States has been preparing the Ukrainian Army for a large-scale offensive against the rebels-controlled Donbas region in eastern Ukraine. The operation will target civilians and result in genocide.


The alleged preparation of a Ukrainian offensive against the Kremlin-supported rebels in the country's eastern regions is a recurring element of pro-Kremlin disinformation. The claim is frequently pushed by pro-Kremlin media to discredit the country's struggle for territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The Ukrainian government has mentioned numerous times that Ukraine is not interested in the war in Donbas and prefers to settle the conflict by peaceful political means. The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Ukraine believes that the Minsk agreements are the only option to end the war in Donbas.
