Disinfo: Mainstream media hide the truth on migration crisis in Canada

Summary

On the morning on January 21 2019, at least 13 people crossed the border illegally into Canada in only two hours. Mainstream media did not report about this; only alternative media dare telling the truth.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on fluxes of migrants. No evidence provided for the alleged border crossing. The narrative of the "mainstream media hiding the truth" is a popular conspiracy theory consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives attacking and discrediting Western media, for examples see here and here.

It's not a coincidence that a nurse was near the Skripals

It is an extremely unlikely coincidence that the first person who ‘by chance’ attended to the Skripals was the top nurse of the British army. An experienced officer, highly connected, who is also known for handling highly infectious patients. Someone wrote the script for this enthralling saga. This is one of the many, many ‘coincidences’, curiosities and lies that make the official Skripal poisoning narrative so unbelievable.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. The disinformation message was communicated as a series of rhetorical questions, implying UK government conspiracy behind the Skripal case. This is often-used method of applying a pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Salisbury poisoning. Also see here. British Police has presented a solid chain of evidence on the Skripal Case, with pictures, connecting the suspects to the locations in the case. Parts of the material have been released to the public.

US began a dangerous nuclear experiment in Ukraine

Americans began a dangerous nuclear experiment in Ukraine through the company Westinghouse. Kiev pretends that US is ready to transfer a technology that could be used to make nuclear weapons in order to raise Poroshenko’s ratings ahead of the elections.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the use of nuclear power in Ukraine and the upcoming presidential elections. According to Ukrainian media, Westinghouse will provide Ukraine with nuclear fuel production technology for energy purposes.

In 2011 Americans Politically Assassinated Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Americans framed former head of the IMF Dominique Strauss Kahn – who was a favourite for the upcoming presidential election in France in 2011. He was a critic of US economic policy, harmful for France as well. As president of France, he might have been inconvenient for the Americans. It was a political assassination of a man, who had all chances of becoming the President of France. Therefore in 2012 François Hollande, who was considered useful for the Americans, was put into the presidential chair in France.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no evidence. Consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about American domination in Europe and lack of democracy in France. For examples see: French Maidan is a lesson for those who refuse to obey American diktat; France is not a liberal democracy.
