Disinfo: In America there is alignment against the white heterosexual population

Summary

In America today, the democratic left, the government, the media and the universities are aligned against the white heterosexual population while favouring the alleged victims of white racism and of transphobia. Kristen Clarke was nominated to the Department of Justice in order to guarantee that employment and social promotion' policies favour alleged victims of racial and gender injustice perpetrated by white heterosexual Americans. The immigration policy is also hostile to white Americans, who could become a minority with no future.

Disproof

Disinformation presented without supporting evidence. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the threats to traditional values in the West and about the alleged victimisation of whites in American society. The strengthening of societal divisions in the US and in other Western nations is a key goal of pro-Kremlin disinformation. The claim that white heterosexual Americans are victims of the US government and/or of other “élites”, who allegedly favour people of different colour and sexuality, is one of the disinformation narratives spread in order to pursue this goal.

This article’s portrayal of the white American population as victims of social and racial persecution does not reflect reality. It is not true that the white heterosexual population is discriminated against in American society in favour of the victims of white racism, based on race and gender. There is no evidence that the white American population is at risk of becoming a minority without rights and a future.

Furthermore, there is no evidence to support the article’s claim that Kristen Clarke was selected by the Biden Administration as the head of the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division in order guarantee that employment and social promotion policies favour victims of racism and gender injustice while disadvantaging white Americans. Kristen Clarke is the president and executive director of the National Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (Lawyers’ Committee), “one of the country’s most important national civil rights organisations in the pursuit of equal justice for all”.

Read similar cases claiming that in the West white male heterosexuals cannot defend themselves against discrimination and are increasingly treated as criminals by courts and how the “systemic racism” paradigm is deadly for America’s white people, which are disenfranchised and oppressed

Disinfo: Special forces detachment "Berkut" tried to protect Ukrainians 7 years ago

Seven years ago, armed clashes broke out in the centre of Kyiv when militant-nationalists from Western Ukraine were brought to Kyiv and the special forces, “Berkut”, tried to protect Ukrainians.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Euromaidan protests.

The Ukrainian revolution started from the gathering of students in Kyiv after former president Viktor Yanukovych refused to sign the EU Association Agreement. They were not 'militant-nationalists' who were 'brought to Kyiv'. The memories of participants are well-documented and it shows that there were people from all over the country who participated by their own will. Far-right groups had a very limited presence during the protests.

Disinfo: Navalny is used as an instrument by the Western special services

Foreign states are behind all the actions of the opposition leader Alexei Navalny; there is no place for such people who “betrayed the country” in the Russian authorities.

Today, Navalny is used as an instrument (interference) by the Western special services, the State Department. Everyone should have an understanding that everything he does is backed by foreign states. Our task is to prevent foreign interference, whoever pursues policy here, the country must be protected.

And if a person has betrayed the country, if he is on foreign funding, there is nothing for him to do in any government bodies. You cannot help him engage in politics, represent our citizens in different government bodies.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexey Navalny.

Anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny has long been the most prominent face of Russian opposition to President Vladimir Putin. His candidacy in the 2018 presidential election was banned by authorities over his conviction by a Russian court of embezzlement, which bars him from running for office. He has been arrested and imprisoned several times during his political career.

Disinfo: Navalny's arrest could be used by the West to impose new anti-Russian sanctions

The arrest of opposition leader Alexey Navalny after his return to Moscow from Germany, where he was hospitalised after he fell ill in Omsk, Siberia, has provoked a new wave of reactions in the West against Russia. Many analysts believe that this is part of a strategy to impose new sanctions against Moscow.

Disproof

A new twist of a previously used pro-Kremlin narrative that the poisoning of Alexei Navalny (and now his return to Russia) is a secret project to introduce sanctions on Russia.

Contrary to the claim, which is not backed by any evidence, Alexei Navalny is an independent Russian politician, not a pawn of any foreign government. His decision to return to Russia is related to his refusal to become an exile and to internal deliberations of his political movement, not to any order from abroad.
