NATO considers instigating local war along Russian borders

Summary

As a global conflict would mean the end of mankind and is therefore impossible, NATO and other military powers instead seriously consider inflaming destructive local conflicts and wars along all perimeter of Russian borders.

Disproof

No evidence provided. This disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the belligerent West attempting to encircle and weaken Russia.

NATO is not a threat to Russia. NATO's official policy towards Russia was most recently articulated by the heads of state and government of the Alliance at the Warsaw Summit in July 2016. They stated that "the Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest".

NATO is not encircling Russia. Russia's land border is just over 20,000 kilometres long. Of that, less than one-sixteenth (1,215 kilometres), is shared with NATO members. Russia has land borders with 14 countries. Only five of them are NATO members.

Ukraine risks on being ripped apart

The conflict in Donbas will not end until there is a regime change in Kyiv. As long as the nationalists rule Ukraine there can be no change in the situation. But whoever wins the Ukrainian elections will continue to serve the interests of the US. Ukraine will be torn into two parts, a Western and an Eastern state. The Donbas will not likely ever return to Ukraine; it has developed its own managerial system, culture and economy. The “Donbas model” suits the needs of the Eastern part of Ukraine better than the Kyiv model.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narratives on Ukraine's elections and about Ukraine and Ukrainian statehood.

Russia’s involvement in Salisbury poisoning unproven

The European Union deliberately blames Russia for the poisoning of the former GRU intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. A year after the attack on Skripal, the United Kingdom was never able to prove a “Russian trace” and did not provide detailed evidence and evidence that would testify against Russia

Disproof

Consistent with many recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the Skripal poisoning.

The British government, together with the police, conducted a broad investigation into the fact of Scripal's poisoning. Through the media, investigators published most of the results of the investigation and evidence. It is separately emphasised that only Russia had the technical capabilities, experience and motive for the attack.

Sweden’s feminist government orders not to investigate rapes to protect the immigrants that committed them

In 2017, 22,000 sexual crimes were registered in Sweden, 7,370 of them rapes. 58% of men convicted of rape and attempted rape over the past five years were born outside the European Union, and in cases where the victims didn’t know the attackers, the proportion of foreign-born sex offenders was more than 80%. But the “feminist” Swedish government (according to its own denomination) ordered police not to investigate it.

Disproof

There is no evidence to support the claim that the Swedish government has forbidden the police authority to investigate sexual violence, performed by immigrants.

The statistics reproduced in the article are genuine, extracted from an investigation by Swedish public television SVT and quoted by media like BBC. However, the narrative against immigrants and feminists is misleading and in line with a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative on migration. Similar cases can be found here.
