Disinfo: Josep Borrell's visit to Moscow was an excuse for a new round of the sanctions' war with Russia

Summary

The visit of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell to Moscow was conceived as an excuse for a new round of the sanctions war with Russia.

The contrast between the statements made by Borrell in Moscow and what he said on his return to Brussels is noteworthy. This behaviour suggests that fewer and fewer independent politicians remain in the EU’s governing structures, while the real centre of decision-making is, as in the United States, the “deep state” hidden from prying eyes, which from day to day only strengthens the course of confrontation with Russia.

Disproof

This article contains a mix of several disinformation narratives about Western aggression, the US presence in Europe and the Deep State controlling Europe along with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western sanctions imposed on Russia trying to imply that the sanctions are groundless and used to suppress Russia.

The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission (HR/VP), Josep Borrell travelled to Moscow with the intention of openning a dialogue on core issues in the relations between the European Union and Russia. The Kremlin answered the European Union’s invitation to dialogue with a shameless attempt to deflect attention from its violations of Russia’s international obligations and own laws.

In a statement after the visit, Josep Borrell reiterates his appeal for dialogue with Russia, but notes that the Kremlin refused an exchange on issues:

"The Russian authorities did not want to seize this opportunity to have a more constructive dialogue with the EU. This is regrettable and we will have to draw the consequences."

The EU, its member states and most of the world community demands that Russia fulfils its obligations as a member of the UN, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and other international organisations, as well as Russia's own legislation.

The EU imposed restrictive measures, including sectoral sanctions, as a result of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, while formats such as regular high-level dialogues and cooperation remain suspended in the absence of the full implementation of the Minsk agreements by Russia. A number of additional issues affect bilateral relations, including Russia’s actions in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood, Syria, Libya and elsewhere, and repeated malign activities including disinformation campaigns. The EU’s approach to Russia is guided by five principles agreed in 2016 and reaffirmed, most recently, by EU Foreign Ministers in October 2020.

Medical technology to infect people with Covid-19 virus was developed 5 years ago

The medical technology to infect people with the Covid-19 virus was developed 5 years ago.

“Operation Covid-19” included stages that you could witness during the last two years. 1) artificial panic under the name of the pandemic; 2) restrictions and bans in all countries of the world under the auspices of citizens’ health care; 3) mass vaccination; 4) universal digital control over the movement and behaviour of people, including the ability to digitally identify each person. These very steps will allow modern financial corporations, as institutions, to reduce the capacity of states, to take full control of the world and become the infamous “world government.”

All the world’s leading special services took part in the Covid-19 operation. If the pandemic is slowly reducing the world’s population, then the global elites behind Operation Covid-19 could also go to nuclear war.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory and recurrent disinformation narrative about the coronavirus pandemic and vaccination, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a Shadow Government of Globalists ruling all the world and aiming to reduce world population through pandemics and vaccination and even go for nuclear war.

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.

Josep Borrell doesn't have a freedom to choose an independent political course

The highly respected EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy has no freedom to independently choose a political course. It seems that after arriving in Brussels, he was explained how the meeting with the Russians was supposed to be, and what conclusions he had to draw at its end.

Perhaps, upon return to Brussels, the head of European diplomacy was explained what accents he had to do, but then this only confirms how and by whom the EU policy is actually formed.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory. EU shapes its policy in full transparance, without external involvment. The High Representative for foreign affairs shapes the standing of the European Union on the global stage. This includes conducting the EU’s Common Foreign and Security Policy, ensuring implementation of the decisions adopted by the European Council and the Council, chairing monthly meetings of foreign affairs ministers from all EU member states, and more.

HRVP Josep Borrel travelled to Moscow 4 - 6 February to test whether the Russian government was interested in addressing differences and reversing the negative trend in EU-Russia relations.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about vaccines. aiming to promote the Russian Sputnik V vaccine.
