Disinfo: “Import” of LGBT people from abroad is part of the anti-Armenian program


Soros has become a headache for the Nikol [Nikol Pashinyan, the Prime minister of Armenia]. Transnational globalist organisations keep heavily pressuring him, demanding practical steps of national defilement. Also, importing LGBTs from abroad is part of the anti-Armenian program. It is planned to “import” up to 30,000 of these “creatures”.


Conspiracy theory. This message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the morally corrupt West and threatened traditional values as well as the West as a threat and promoter of perversion. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives portraying philanthropist George Soros as a menace bent on destroying countries. See here for more cases. Read similar cases claiming that Armenia is under Soros' occupation, and that foundation is organising clashes in Armenia.

The claim that 30,000 LGBT people are going to enter Armenia is unfounded. This message is in line with other claims, that influx of 50 000 perverts is expected from abroad, that Istanbul convention is a threat for Armenian traditional family and to the Armenian Army.

Read similar cases claiming that LGBT is the “official religion of the democratic West” and that the West allegedly promotes homosexual and lesbian values,

The EU imposed sanctions on Moscow because Crimea returned to Russia

Following the return of Crimea to Russia in 2014, the European Union imposed economic sanctions on Russia, which run until 31 January 2020.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea.

Crimea did not "return" to Russia but was illegally annexed by Moscow. On 27 March 2014, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution in which it stated that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly confirmed its non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea.

White Helmets are part of Al-Qaeda for sure

What does James Le Mesurier’s history have to do with the humanitarian work that is supposed to be the work of the “White Helmets”? Everyone knows that they are part of Al-Qaeda for sure. These people, along with bin Laden’s death, with Baghdadi’s recent killing, all these people are killed because they, first of all, hold important secrets, they have become a burden and their role is over.


Conspiracy theory; no evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the White Helmets, a humanitarian organisation of volunteer rescue workers also known as the Syria Civil Defense, and their recently deceased founder James Le Mesurier. The White Helmets have documented some of the worst atrocities carried out by the Syrian government and the Russian military, and as a result, Russian and Syrian media have consistently sought to delegitimise them through portrayals as a Western-backed “terrorist organisation".

No evidence is given to substantiate the claim that Le Mesurier has connections to Al Quaeda and/or other terrorist groups. This case, as well as the insinuation that the White Helmets were involved in producing fake evidence of chemical weapons attacks in Syria, are a continuation of smear campaigns against civilian rescuers in Syria that have been circulating in pro-Kremlin media for years.
