The current crisis, which caused the pandemic of fear additionally to the COVID-19 pandemic, is the result of the specific media coverage and political-motivated decisions of particular actors. […] The specific of the Russian political culture, a complex tangle of contradictions within the Russian regional and federal elites, as well as the fact that a significant part of the Russian elites is affiliated with the collective West contribute to this scenario. Therefore, the developments triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic may lead to the deformation of the political and administrative structure of the Russian Federation, and lead to notable social and economic tensions. If this scenario turns into reality, the stability of the entire Eurasian region will be undermined.
Trump has an imperative need for an invasion, which has been a constant for all US presidents. It may take place in northern Mexico or in the Caribbean, namely in Venezuela. This country has the biggest oil reserves in the world, which makes it a very attractive target amidst an oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia and the collapse of the US oil industry to the edge of bankruptcy. This especially affects Texas, which has 38 electoral votes and will be a key state in the 2020 election.
Conspiracy theory, with no evidence provided to support it. Contrary to the claim, invasions are not a constant for all US presidents, as exemplified by the cases of Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, who ordered US forces to support the evacuation or rescue of US citizens on several occasions but no aggressive military operations against other countries. This is part of a recurrent Russian disinformation narrative about constant US plots to undermine Latin American governments. You can see many examples in our database, such as alleged plans to designate drug cartels as terrorist organisations as a cover for military control of Mexico, the next country in Washington’s destabilisation list after Bolivia; claims of a US plot to invade Mexico; an alleged CIA-led Twitter campaign and a hybrid war in Bolivia, the engineering of blackouts all over Latin America, the promotion of secessionism in Mexico or Venezuela, the training of Venezuelan exiles in Guyana for military operations inside the country, preparations for military intervention in that country after forcing Brazil to join NATO or the existence of an alleged 'Operation Condor for the XXIst century'. This disinformation message appeared in the same article as the claim that “Trump may invade Venezuela to exchange it for Ukraine”.
