Disinfo: George Soros funds murderers and glorifies them

Summary

George Soros funds murderers and glorifies them. The people have already understood the real goals of the Soros office. There is one important thing here, the foundation, which has declared itself a charity, got the hatred of the whole society.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about George Soros.

The Open Society Foundation, sponsored by George Soros, is a network of independent groups working in many countries, since 1984, for justice, democratic governance and human rights. In the present day, the Open Society Foundations support projects implemented by NGOs or state institutions in more than 120 countries. The Soros Foundation has been supporting human rights, education, research, media and other democratic activities in Armenia since 1997.

Soros has been falsely accused of a wide range of sins: destabilising Europe, organising colour revolutions, attacking churches and traditional values as well as sponsoring the film the "Joker" as a tutorial for colour revolutions, organising clashes in Armenia, serving foreign agendas aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood, provoking Anti-Russian protests in Georgia, being a threat to the national security of Armenia, and being directly involved in the presidential elections and the government crisis in Romania, as well as trying to influence processes in Belarus and around the world.

“Arrest” of 65 Russian planes for flights to Crimea is Kyiv’s revenge for the Wagnerites

The office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine announced the “arrest” of 65 planes for their flights to Crimea. There is a version spreading on the Internet that these restrictions could be revenge for the Minsk’s surrender of 33 Russian citizens, whom Kyiv wanted to question.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine.

There is no evidence to assume any connection between the seizure of Russian planes that flew to Crimea and the refusal to extradite Russian soldiers from Belarus to Ukraine.

The Street Maidan in Bulgaria is an Attempt to Carry Out an Anti-Russian Coup

The protests taking place in Bulgaria are falsely promising a social revolution since capitalism will be preserved, the middle class will continue to be monopolised by big business and the workers will keep being exploited.

The protesters are said to hail from the bottom layers of Bulgarian society, representing puppets of the oligarchy. The President of Bulgaria, who supports the protests, wants to carry out a coup. He does not actually offer a geopolitical reorientation to Russia and Bulgaria’s exit from the EU and NATO but instead aims at derailing Russian energy projects in the country (including the construction of the Belene nuclear power plant and Turk Stream). The ‘maidan of the street’ is an American operation, which has set its sights on driving Moscow out of the Balkans and bears significant resemblance to the US-plotted protests in Belarus. Overall, the coup – inspired by the President and supported by America, wants to bring to power neo-fascists and Russophobes.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Russian disinformation narrative that denounces protest movements as coups orchestrated by the US and aiming to diminish Russian influence.

The article falsely claims to be unmasking protests as being unable and unwilling to bring about a social revolution. Yet, the protest participants’ main demands focus on political transparency and accountability, whereby calls for a socialist transformation putting an end to capitalism have not been recorded.

Germany’s Deep State use Navalny to force Merkel to scrap Nord Stream 2

The Navalny Case: Merkel vs. German Deep State.

It appears more “highly likely” that Angela Merkel’s own government factions played a really nasty trick on her, by opportunistically using Navalny’s illness in order to exert pressure on Merkel and force her to scuttle North Stream 2 which is, after all, one of her signature projects.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory advancing a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Alexei Navalny's poisoning. It is an attempt to divert attention from the questions Russian authorities need to answer on the poisoning incident where military grade nerve agent was used. 

There are no grounds for connecting the cause of Navalny's poisoning with the construction of Nord Stream 2.
