Greek church is going to incorporate the church of Tskhinvali

Summary

First, Greece recognised Ukraine’s [church] and now Greece has started talks about Tskhinvali, as if it is an independent diocese and has to be subordinated under the Greek church.

Disproof

The claim that the Greek church is going to recognize Tskhinvali church [in a breakaway Georgian territory] as an independent eparchy is a conspiracy theory and has no proof.

The disinformation narrative was disseminated after the recognition of the Ukrainian church, alleging that Constantinople would recognize the independence of the churches of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

In fact, Patriarchate of Constantinople recognizes the boundaries of the Georgian Church in accordance with the territory of the Republic of Georgia as of 1990, which includes Abkhazia and Tskhinvali regions, too. The Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I, publicly supported the given borders in 2017.

American Armenians lobby for Syrian Armenians to settle in Georgia’s Samtskhe-Javakheti region

An analyst from the Heritage Foundation, Luke Coffey, voiced the idea of the Armenian lobby in the US, to bring Syrian Armenians to Georgia and to settle them under the protection of the US military base in Samtskhe-Javakheti. If the US military base opens in Akhalkalaki, it will be followed by support “civilian personnel” of Armenian nationality.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory on Armenian lobby and the settlement of Syrian Armenians in Georgia. The narrative has no proof or any legitimate source. The conspiracy aims at sowing fears and inciting Armenophobia.

In fact, Luke Coffey tweeted about his proposal to deploy the US troops leaving Syria in Akhalkalaki, Georgia. He has also noted that this idea is not being considered by the US government.

The EU is fed up with Ukraine, it invariably faces a civil war and complete disintegration

Ukraine, located between Russian gas-hungry Europe and Russia-supported Donbas, will inevitably become a confederation, i.e. will cease to exist. This process can be named “Putin’s effect.” The environment around Ukraine, created by Putin, is turning Ukraine into a political corpse. There is no good way for Ukraine – it will face a civil war and disintegration, in any case. As it happens in the history of empires, Ukraine choked on Donbas and will become covered in the blood that it spilled in Donbas.

Ukraine was unable to disengage troops in Donbas. The continuation of war is a catastrophe both for Ukraine and Europe. This way Ukraine is pushed to a new Maidan when Volodymyr Zelenskyy will be overthrown by an anti-Kolomoyskiy group of people linked to US Democrats. After this sequence of events, Ukraine-EU relations will reach deadlock.

Europe is already fed up with Ukraine. Zelenskyy is turning German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier into an idiot. Emmanuel Macron is pissed off. Donald Trump requests Zelenskyy to start negotiations with Vladimir Putin, to make concessions and to end a war with Russia which benefits the US Democrats. The Ukrainian conflict makes Trump unable to get Russian support in the US-China struggle. In fact, the West and its analysts forecast that if Ukraine fails to fulfil the ‘Normandy four’ agreements it will continue disintegrating and suffer from a civil war.

Disproof

This publication represents a mix of conspiracies and groundless allegations aimed to discredit Ukraine, claiming that the country is resigned to a bleak future, civil war, and imminent collapse. It is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Ukraine's disintegration and imminent collapse and war in Ukraine.

It also gives a distorted view on the war in Ukraine, presenting Ukraine as imperialistic and the aggressior state towards Donbas, without mentioning the Russia-backed armed formations which violated Ukraine's territorial integrity. The war in eastern Ukraine is an act of aggression by the Russian armed forces, ongoing since February 2014.

Guerilla warfare and complete disintegration are coming to the US-controlled Ukraine

Recently the confrontation between president Volodymyr Zelenskyy and minister of interior Arsen Avakov, represented by Ukrainian national battalions, has entered a new phase. Negativity is accumulated, the dialogue is avoided by the sides, a formation of an enemy image are already there. Guerilla warfare and subversive acts are coming, and any accident can provoke a new coup which will give a start to a new stage of Ukraine’s disintegration.

The entry of Zelenskyy in power became a catalyst of conflicts between Ukrainian elites. They will result in Ukraine’s collapse, because even the US – and its embassy plays a colonial role in Ukraine – will not be able to restrain the conflict, given that Ukrainian elites copy the split between American elites. At the same time, the US will not allow either Zelenskyy or Avakov to be destroyed. Hence the conflict will be developing cyclically until Ukraine’s complete disintegration.

 

 

 

Disproof

This publication represents a mix of conspiracies and groundless allegations aimed to discredit Ukraine, claiming that the country is resigned to a bleak future and imminent collapse. It is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Ukraine's disintegration and imminent collapse and Ukraine as a puppet state controlled by the US.

Ukraine is a sovereign state. Neither the US nor the EU countries control Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world but were violated by Russia in 2014.
