No proof of Russian meddling in the elections anywhere

The charges of Russian interference are numerous: they concern the French election, the Brexit referendum; Russia is also accused of being behind the movement of yellow vests in France and of supporting Matteo Salvini’s North League (Lega Nord). First, there is no Russian interference. The accusations come from some environments who have an interest in developing a new cold war. In France no single proof was found. Nowhere else either.

[The same claims] were evoked in Germany, but after that a major magazine in Germany asked “But, where are the Russians?”. Because the election was over and there was no interference. The German secret services stated that they hadn’t found anything. But it stays in the mindset after the media campaign. It is a fantasy that came from the United States and was married by pro-American elites throughout Europe.

 

Disproof

No evidence given that the accusations come "from some environments who have an interest in developing a new cold war."

The attempts of Russian election meddling are already well documented. Investigations were conducted by the authorities of the countries, Parliament's committee (UK) , as well as by journalists. Thus, in the US, 126 millions of users were reached by Russia-linked users, 29 millions from them have seen the content "directly".

Euromaidan was a coup d’etat of the Right Sector and Ukrainian Nazis, supported by the CIA and Poland

The 2014 uprising in Ukraine known as Euromaidan was a coup d’etat conducted by the Right Sector (Pravyi Sektor) and followers of Nazi Stepan Bandera, sponsored by the CIA and the Polish government.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that claims Euromaidan was a coup, organized by Nazis and foreign states.

The protest movement  known as Euromaidan, which lasted from the end of November 2013 until the end of February 2014, was a genuine uprising of the Ukrainian people against the government of former President Yanukovych who, with a U-turn decision, decided not to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union that he had promised for years.

The US deliberately lowers the threshold of nuclear weapons use and intentionally increases the risk of nuclear conflict

The US intends to deploy new high-accuracy nuclear airdrop bombs in Europe. This means that Washington is deliberately lowering the threshold of nuclear weapons use and intentionally increasing the risk of catastrophic nuclear conflict.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that US and NATO nuclear policies are bringing the world closer to nuclear war. See previous cases here and here.

The current US nuclear strategy is detailed in the Nuclear Posture Review [NPR], issued by the Department of Defence in February 2018. The 2018 NPT states that “Nuclear forces, along with our conventional forces and other instruments of national power, are therefore first and foremost directed towards deterring aggression and preserving peace. Our goal is to convince adversaries they have nothing to gain and everything to lose from the use of nuclear weapons. In no way does this approach lower the nuclear threshold”.
