Life in Western countries means living in dirt and constant fear, surrounded by criminals and homeless people

Summary of Disinformation

The most problematic issues in the US are very high housing prices and high criminal rates. Above all, many Americans live in constant fear of nuclear war and attack from the Russians. It is worth thinking a lot before emigrating from Russia to the Western countries to live in the dirt and constant fear, surrounded by criminals and homeless people.

Disproof

This message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West's decline. Whereas the given publication focuses on adverse socio-economic factors, usually this narrative takes the form of criticism of the West from the 'moral values' perspective.

It contains the illogical conclusion and ungrounded generalisation aimed to discredit Western countries. Although the publication provides only (mostly ungrounded) US-related claims, it discourages people from moving to the 'West' implying that living conditions are generally unfavourable there.
