Disinfo: Groups in the shadow dictated the outcome of US Presidential Elections

Summary

Groups in the shadow, which we have never seen, could not reconcile. They could not stand the fact that Donald Trump, whom they do not like, could have the power for additional four years, and keep in his hands Soros, Gates, the media and other resources.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative targetting the 2020 US Presidential Elections.

There is no proof that “groups in the shadow” were trying to create an obstacle against Donald Trump’s coming to the power. In November 2020 election, Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump and was elected President of the United States. Joe Biden became the first presidential candidate to win more than 80 million votes and had 306 electoral votes, while Trump had 232.

As regards the fairness of the elections, OSCE ODIHR stated in its preliminary findings and conclusions that “The 3 November general elections were competitive and well managed despite legal uncertainties and logistical challenges”. Although there were allegations with regard to frauds in the elections by Donald Trump, Attorney General William Barr declared that there is no uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election by the U.S. Justice Department. All these pieces of evidence show that Joe Biden’s defeat over Donald Trump happened through legal means.

Read similar cases regarding US 2020 elections such as "A great majority of American citizens recognise that the 2020 Presidential Elections were corrupt" and "There is massive evidence of electoral fraud in the 2020 US Presidential Elections".

Ukraine is an artificial state created against Russia, it is an anti-Russian project

Ukraine needs to support its pocket church, and it is needed to show that the Ukrainian state has taken place. In fact, the Ukrainian state is nothing more than an entity created by external forces on the territory of Russia as an anti-Russian (vehicle). And without this anti-Russian ideology, without Russophobia, this state loses its meaning.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative alleging that Ukraine is not a state, that Ukraine is under external control, and that it is a Russophobic, anti-Russian project.

Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation-state, with its own flag, nationality, language and with a democratically-elected president and parliament. Ukraine is not controlled by any foreign government, while its sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world but were violated by Russia in 2014.

If Trump surrenders, an era of neo-liberal fascism will start in the USA

If the Trump team and its supporters surrender now, the electoral college will meet once again and approve Biden the President of the United States. This will mark the start of the new era – the era of the neo-liberal fascism in the United States.

Disproof

An unfounded claim, describing the democratic process of electing Joe Biden for President as a “fascist coup”.

Pro-Kremlin outlets regularly label opposition as “fascists”. On the other hand, fascists, like Mussolini, Franco and Hitler, are often described with sympathy and understanding.

A new wave of migration from the Baltic states will follow after the pandemic

When pandemic will be over and EU borders will be open, in the Baltic States will be the same situation as 2008-2009 when hundreds of thousands of people left Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. These states lost 1/10 people of working age in a span of a few months. Now, there have been no special measures to support the small and medium-size business. The Baltic states have nor money, nor willingness to do it.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about abandoned and disappearing Baltic States.

The challenge of economical migration is topical for the Baltic states but in this message it hyperbolized. The migration temporarily increased after the 2008-2009 economic crisis, but it was not so dramatically huge. The statistical figures about migration in the Baltic states could be found in the book “The Politics of Economic Sustainability: Baltic and Visegrad Responses to the European Economic Crisis” (2014, edited by Karlis Bukovskis). The data shows that in Lithuania emigration increased from 2009 (in 2008 - 26.800, in 2009 - 40.400, in 2010 - 83.200) and began to decrease in 2011. In Estonian case, “in the 2007-2012 period the average net migration from Estonia was 7,000 people per year, which means there has been a loss of 0.75% of the population every year”. In Latvia emigration increased from 2009 (in 2008 - 27.000, in 2009 - 38.000, in 2010 - 39.000) and began to decrease in 2011 quite similarly as in Lithuania.
