Disinfo: NATO and Poland plan to attack Belarus, they should be ready for Russia’s nuclear punishment

Summary

NATO and Poland have military plans for conquering the western part of Belarus. Amid the presidential elections and recent protests in Belarus, Poles openly voiced their claims for Belarusian territories. Poland is famous for its arrogance, impertinence, and ignorance. It is a Europe’s bald stinky dog and the stinkiest cesspool. In case NATO attacks Belarus, Russians will fight for it as for their own land. Russia should amend its military doctrine with the right to use nuclear arms in case of an emergency. The NATO units, stationed in the Baltic states, Poland, Romania, and Germany should realise that they are doomed for Russian nuclear capital punishment in case of attacking Belarus.

Disproof

This message contains recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the aggressive West and NATO and imperialist Poland. Poland and other NATO states respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Belarus. Poland fully supports Belarus's territorial integrity, respects the principles of international law, and does not intervene in the domestic affairs of any country.

Following the deployment of additional units of the Belarusian army on the country's border with Poland and Lithuania in late August 2020, the Polish Defence Ministry reiterated in its official position that Poland has no territorial claims on any country.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that that Russia saved Belarus from Western bombing like in Yugoslavia, that Poland and the Baltic states are the Western world's jackals who can produce a global catastrophe, and that Poland may attack four European countries including Belarus, and that the West is considering a military attack against Russia despite its nuclear capabilities.

NASDAQ will delist any company without one LGBT board member

The American Stock Exchange “Nasdaq” announced its intention to remove companies that do not appoint one woman and a member of the LGBT minority to their boards of directors.

The ruling elite finds nothing better than sacrificing efficiency for ideology. It happened in the Soviet Union for the sake of communist ideology, in the United States, it happens for the liberal ideology, which requires that companies not be run by effective professionals, with experience and professional competence, and have come a long way in the career ladder, but based on their background whether they are gay or women whose competence is summed up only in not being men.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that seeks to discredit liberalism by comparing it to the communism of the Soviet Union, which makes it part of a wider narrative claiming that liberal societies are totalitarian systems ruled by “globalist elites”.

The new proposed Nasdaq listing requirement does not force companies to have an LGBT board member but requires listed companies to include in their board at least one woman and one member from an underrepresented minority group "or" an LGBTQ member.

The objective of the EU’s attack against Russia with regards to coronavirus-related disinfo is illegal censorship

The European Union launched a new attack on Russia instead of joining forces in the fight against coronavirus. This attack creates an information background to impose censorship and illegal restrictions on unwanted journalists.

Disproof

This is a pro-Kremlin message which aims to deny the role of Russian media in spreading disinformation narratives about the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, it is the Russian media that has been involved in pushing several disinformation narratives and conspiracy theories since the start of the pandemic trying to undermine its severity and politicize it. The claim was neither critically challenged nor counterbalanced in the article.

For example, in the early days of the pandemic, pro-Kremlin media propagated the view that the virus was created by the US to destroy the Chinese economy and target Russia and its allies, only for the US to become one of the hardest hit countries by the pandemic. The narrative then focused on the pandemic being a plot by a global elite to control people including by planting a microchip in their heads.
