Disinfo: In the next few years US plans to destroy Russia

Summary

[The United States] needs to destroy Russia over the next few years, just as it did to the USSR in 1991.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation associated with the recent public protests in Russia as an attempt to to encircle and destabilise Russia.

The US is not planning to destroy Russia and it did not destroy the USSR. The collapse of the USSR was caused by the inner political processes inside of the USSR, including the fatal Putsch in August 1991 in Moscow.

The US respects Russia's sovereignty and territorial integrity and supports:

"deepened bilateral partnership in security cooperation to reinforce the foundations of stability and predictability".

However, in response to the Russian violation in 2014 of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, the US downgraded the bilateral political and military relationship.

See similar disinformation cases alleging that the West needs Alexey Navalny to destabilise the situation in Russia, that US supports pro-Navalny protests to interfere in Russian politics, that Navalny is a Trump card for the US Administration for negotiations with Russia, foreign special services are behind demonstrations in Russia.

Groups in the shadow dictated the outcome of US Presidential Elections

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.

The machine to reduce the population is already actively operating

In the first stage of the artificially created new coronavirus (SARS-COV 2), murder and reduction of the number of human beings are carried out, testing of the virus and its mutations are in mass use, testing of health and other resistance capacities of different countries, their scientific and technical potential, testing of created vaccines. The emergence of panic, so that the vaccine is the only way out, as well as a blow to the economies of different countries to destroy and weaken them as much as possible.

How many more people have to die or become disabled to understand that the machine to reduce the population is already actively operating?

Disproof

Disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic and vaccinations, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world and aiming to reduce world population.

This is part of a disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.

Donbas has never truly belonged to Ukraine

The DNR and LNR represent the result of the political and national will of the people of Donbas and the will of the Russian people as a whole. This will was expressed both in a referendum as well as in the form of direct state and military-political actions and is being continuously implemented.
[…]
The borders of the DNR coincide with the borders of the former Donetsk oblast of Ukraine, and the borders of the LNR with the borders of the former Luhansk oblast, parts of which continue to be held by force as part of the Ukrainian state and must be reunited with the Republics of Donbas.
[…]
After the collapse of the USSR into separate states in 1991, Donbas, along with other regions of Novorossia, became part of Ukraine against its will.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the war in Ukraine and the alleged lack of evidence of the presence of Russian troops involved, mixed with a narrative alleging that Donbas is a part of the Russian world and was forcibly joined to Ukraine.

On a Ukrainian independence referendum in 1991, 92.3% of Ukrainians voted for independence. The independence of Ukraine was supported by the majority of votes in all regions, including Donetsk oblast (83.9%), Luhansk oblast (83.86%), and Crimea (54.19%).
