Disinfo: Liberals want to kill Christians, or at least they want to kill Christian beliefs and practices

Summary

Christians have been persecuted for centuries, beginning with the persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire. In the last century an almost endless series of massacres were perpetrated against Christians, with the Bolshevik persecution of Christians resulting in millions of victims. Despite today’s liberals’ veneer of “niceness”, they want to kill Christians, or at least they want to kill Christian beliefs and practices, and to kill Christians’ control over their own lives and families

Disproof

Disinformation presented with no evidence. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative claiming that Christians are oppressed and persecuted in Western liberal societies, and that Western élites and governments deliberately seek to undermine and eradicate Christian values, beliefs and practices.

This claim is obviously false. Moreover, the article’s suggestion that the condition of Christians in Western societies today is similar to the terror and repression against Christians by the Soviet communist regime is an obvious falsification of reality.

In reality, Christians and other religious communities enjoy freedom of religion and belief in Western societies. Freedom of religion and belief has significant protection in the EU.

Religious freedom, as an established human right by-law, is closely connected with the development of the Western liberal and democratic state.

Read previous cases claiming that the US government is trying to eradicate Christianity, that the EU and NATO view Christianity as a force that needs to be overcome, and that Western élites are behind the ongoing genocide of Christians.

The Ukrainian revolution was well-planned from abroad

The Kyiv protests were well organised and completely controlled. And the murders of law enforcement officers and the “Heavenly Hundred”, with which the radicals are now rushing, and even the moment of the coup were all under the control of the curators who conceived, organised and carried out this operation.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative against Ukraine, containing multiple disinformation narratives regarding the Euromaidan protests and Ukrainian statehood.

There was no coup in Ukraine seven years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU.

Russia will have to help Brussels with the vaccination because of the chaos in the EU

Russia will have to provide the Sputnik V vaccine to European countries because Western coronavirus vaccine supplies to Europe are collapsing.

Disproof

This is the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative aiming to discredit Western vaccines and promote "Sputnik V", and is entirely without evidence.

The European Commission has authorised the first COVID-19 vaccines in the European Union (EU), following European Medicines Agency (EMA) approval. EMA is liaising closely with developers of other potential COVID-19 vaccines, mobilising its own resources and cooperating with regulatory partners.

COVID-19 pandemic is a global conspiracy in the interests of the global elite

The “pandemic” that we’re talking about since the spring of 2020 is not something spontaneous. This is a pre-planned operation with the goal of worldwide restructuring in the interests of the “global elite” (“world behind the scenes”, “deep state”).

Disproof

A recurring conspiracy theory that echoes pro-Kremlin disinformation about the artificial creation of COVID-19.

There is no evidence that the coronavirus (COVID-19) was created in laboratories and that the pandemic is a part of a global hoax. COVID-19 comes from a family of viruses that includes the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS. Coronaviruses are known to circulate in mammals and birds, and scientists have already suggested that COVID-19 originally came from bats. One of the previous coronaviruses that caused severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, spread from bats to civet cats to humans.
