Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Sandarmokh and Finland starting from 2016. m.tvzvezda.ru/news/qhistory/content/201608040821-ge82.htm?utm_source=m.tvzvezda&utm_medium=pagelinks&utm_campaign=newslink&utm_term=v1,

7000-9000 victims of Stalin's terror were executed in Sandarmokh in the Republic of Karelia, Russia, 1937-1938. Hundreds of monuments have been erected in Sandarmokh to commemorate the victims.

Beginning 2016, a disinformation message started being spread that among the dead were Soviet prisoners of war shot by invading Finns during 1941-44.

The mass graves were discovered by historian Yury Dmitriev in 1997, now facing questionable accusations and dubious charges. eeas.europa.eu/headquarters/headquarters-homepage/47471/statement-cases-russian-human-rights-defenders-oyub-titiev-and-yuri-dmitriev_en, www.thetimes.co.uk/article/yury-dmitriev-historian-of-stalin-s-purges-charged-with-sexual-abuse-59jgjdct0,

According to Finnish and many Russian historians and Dmitriev himself, the Finns could not know the location of the mass graves during the war. Soviet POWs is a thoroughly studied topic in Finland, the archives are open for the historians and they do not give any evidence for the version stated above, Finnish embassy in Moscow said. www.kommersant.ru/doc/3736739,

1,200 POWs out of all Soviet servicemen who died while imprisoned in Finnish camps were shot. Nothing suggests that the shot POWs would have any connection to Sandarmokh.

US has ordered terrorists and White Helmets to prepare staged incident in Idlib

The risk that chemical weapons will be used in a false-flag incident in Syria remains high.Several leaders of “terrorist groups” and the White Helmets rescue force held a meeting in Idlib on 7 September to prepare “staged incidents”. The act of provocation will be carried out on the order of the United States and will be followed by strikes on Syrian government troops.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on White Helmets and chemical attacks in Syria. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77488&date= euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=syria&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77353&date=

Earlier, pro-Kremlin disinformation has claimed that both the 2017 attack in Khan Sheikhoun and 2018 in Douma were faked. UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 10 2018 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

British secret services fabricated the evidence of Salisbury attack to blackmail Russia.

British secret services are among the best in the world. The Skripal case was a political order; which they had to fulfill.

Why do all these horrible events only happen in Britain? The reason is
British secret services who mastermind them.
