Disinfo: Israel knew 9/11 was coming

Summary

Israel clearly knew 9/11 was coming, witness the Five Dancing Shlomos cavorting and filming themselves in New Jersey as the twin towers went down.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory, presented entirely without sources or facts to support the claims. The claim of Israelis dancing of joy while the Twin Towers collapsed is a myth that has been debunked several times. Fact-checking site Snopes has extensive material on false claims of Israeli connections to the 9/11.

European observers noted the level of organisation of voting in Russia

European experts closely watched how the voting took place in Russia. They noted the high level of organisation of security measures and the electronic voting. The French are interested in the Russian system. They believe that it can be an example to the rest.

 

Disproof

One of the disinformation narratives about voting on amendments to the Russian Constitution.

According to the independent observers, such large-scale fraud as during the voting on constitutional amendments, has not been seen since 2011.

Russophobia is a characteristic of contemporary Poland

Russophobia is one of the characteristics of contemporary Poland’s policy. The Polish leadership is gambling with the fate of the Polish state and its people, and of course, all this military build-up in Poland and other NATO allies does not work, because Russian military capabilities outweigh what they (NATO) have of possibilities.

Disproof

This message is a part of the Kremlin’s widespread narrative about Russophobic Poland. 

The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses Poland of Russophobia and the implementation of anti-Russian policies.

Ukraine figured out how to rip Russia off with new taxes on diesel fuel

The Ukrainian authorities may introduce an additional tax on subsidised imports of diesel fuel and liquefied natural gas from the Russian Federation. A new way to “rip off” Russia was invented by Ukrainian oil and gas workers.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukraine failing to survive without Russia or without Russian gas.

Before this article's appearance, the Ukrainian Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade stated that there is no reason to implement new taxes on subsidised imports to Ukraine of certain products such as diesel fuel and liquefied natural gas from the Russian Federation.
