Disinfo: US instigates wars and revolutions to flood Europe with refugees

Summary

The United States enters a country and starts bombing it: completely overturns the anthill, creates civil tension, wars, partisan wars, hatred, a huge number of deaths, and in the end, Europeans must accept these refugees. It turns out that this is a definite cynical tool. And now, once again, in the wake of the crisis, it will be possible to start a war somewhere, and from there, NATO will go to Europe… It can all be like a strategy, why not. After stirring up social tension in five different places, in different countries, making revolutions, making Maidans, a million refugees will fall upon Europe.

Disproof

One of many pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives: alleging that the US is behind the so-called colour revolutions around the world; blaming Western governments for deliberately provoking massive migration flows to Europe; undermining Ukraine's statehood and claiming that the Euromaidan protests were organised by foreign forces. Previous pro-Kremlin disinformation claim that Obama and Soros were jointly provoking colour revolutions; that Belarus is to become a colony of the West; that gender theories and identity policies are used by the US to bring down disobeying governments and that Ukraine is enslaved to Europe after Maidan.

EU is on the verge of collapse

It is no longer unlikely that countries like Italy or Spain will leave the eurozone (as a result of the selfish European response toward the Coronavirus epidemic). The collapse of the eurozone is the first step towards the collapse of the European Union.

Disproof

Groundless speculation made without evidence.

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the alleged disintegration of the European Union as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. See similar disinformation cases that the EU's health and safety policies have failed, that the COVID-19 outbreak means the end of Europe, and that many European states will likely cease to exist due to the pandemic.

It is a lie, that the USSR along with Germany is responsible for the outbreak of the WWII

In the USA and European countries, different statements are made about the role of the USSR in the Victory. Unfortunately, there are attempts to review the results and reasons for the outbreak of war and the role of the USSR in the defeat of fascism in this war. This includes those positions when the USSR, along with Germany, is accused of starting this war. This can be called, nothing other than a lie.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism – it accuses the West of the “falsification and re-writing” of WWII history in order to “minimise the role of the USSR in victory over Nazism” and to “get rid of its share of the blame for the outbreak of WWII”. It is also an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. Both Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR were harsh totalitarian regimes, which directly caused the deaths of tens of millions of people. The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and the condemnation of totalitarian ideologies. Western countries do not question the role of the USSR in the victory over Nazi Germany. The signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was a mutual decision of two regimes (Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR) aimed at the division of Eastern and Central Europe between these two powers. It is a fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Read similar examples of Russian historical revisionism concerning this issue such as the Signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact thwarted the UK’s expansionist plans in Europe, the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact did not violate the rights of the Polish state, the shift of all blame for WWII outbreak at the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact the best example of manipulation of history, the USSR is not to blame for the beginning of World War II, the USSR was not an aggressor in World War 2, To assign equal responsibility for the outbreak of WWII to Nazi Germany and the USSR is falsification.

The coronavirus vaccine will reduce the population

The new coronavirus vaccine will be used to reduce the population. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation provides funding of up to100 million USD for discovering better ways to identify, isolate and treat cases of new coronavirus infection.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with no evidence provided to support the claim.It is a pro-Kremlin narrative against billionaire Bill Gates and attacking vaccination programmes. Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, philanthropist, became a frequent target of conspiracy theory followers and is being accused of sponsoring and creating coronavirus, for aspiring to reduce the population and poison it with vaccines.
