Disinfo: An oligarch-sponsored insurrection against the American people will take place around presidential elections


A number of rich businessmen “philanthropists”, such as George Soros, are involved in promoting “colour revolutions” and destabilising states around the world. People in the West now fear that oligarch-sponsored revolts – or “plutocratic insurrections” as a US military analyst calls them – will take place in the West itself. Oligarchs can promote destabilising conflicts at various levels against Western states and peoples. It is very probable that an oligarch-sponsored insurrection against the American state and people will take place just before and during the US presidential elections in November.


Conspiracy theory. The article provides no evidence to support its claims.

The article supports the recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation message claiming that a “colour revolution”  in the US is underway, or will be implemented, to oust President Donald Trump. According to this narrative, the “colour revolution” in the US  is organised by shadowy actors such as the “deep state”, the CIA, and/or “globalist élites”, such as George Soros, which are allegedly orchestrating and financing violent protests in US cities.

This message is consistent with the broad pro-Kremlin narrative that portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in many countries (including the anti-racist protests in the US) as  "colour revolutions" orchestrated by shadowy élites or Western intelligence services.

Read previous cases claiming that the US riots are a Maidan-style plot to oust Trump and that the US is suffering from a colour revolution it used to support abroad.

Extremely unconvincing evidence of the Navalny poisoning from Germany; it is a provocation

Germany provided extremely unconvincing evidence of the Alexei Navalny poisoning – it seems to be a provocation.

The “evidence” that Germany has published in the media about the Navalny case is extremely unconvincing. And there was and is no evidence. It is supposedly declared secret. At the same time, the countries of the West decidedly refrain from cooperating with Russia.

I would like to point out once again to our German colleagues that the evidence (on the Navalny case) which they published in the media and did not show us, was extremely unconvincing. We cannot initiate criminal proceedings in Russia without evidence. Maybe it is the common practice in Germany, but not common in Russia. In order to have a conversation about this case, we need the cooperation of our German and European friends. Otherwise nothing will happen and everyone will clearly understand that it is only provocation. At least that is how it seems at the moment.”


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexei Navalny's poisoning.

Germany has responded to past Russian calls for Navalny's medical samples by saying that Russia should already have all it needs after its initial treatment of the dissident.

Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko took office following the post-Maidan coup d’état

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko took office in May 2014 following the post-Maidan coup d’état.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Euromaidan portraying the 2013-14 events in Ukraine as a Western-backed coup.

There was no coup d'état in Ukraine. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November

Microsoft to implant humans with microchips

The implantation of microchips in humans and genetically-modified insects are among Bill Gates’s and Microsoft’s most scandalous projects with potential global impact.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the article’s claim. Bill Gates has long been the target of conspiracy theories about his vast fortune and charitable giving. But claims about the tech tycoon have reached a fever pitch in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. A number of pro-Kremlin outlets have spread coronavirus-related conspiracy theories accusing Bill Gates, and other members of the “global élite”, of seeking to exploit the pandemic to force mass vaccinations and inject microchips into people’s bodies in order to control every person on the planet.

There is no evidence whatsoever that, as the article suggests, Bill Gates and Microsoft are involved in an alleged “project” aimed at the implantation of microchips in humans on a global scale.
