Disinfo: NATO and the EU want to contain and destabilise Russia through Navalny and the “opposition”

Summary

The statements of NATO and EU countries about the situation regarding Alexei Navalny is a coordinated information campaign that represents a global attempt to contain Russia and interfere in its internal affairs.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexei Navalny , aiming to frame criticism of his arrest and the crackdown on protests as foreign interference.

Contrary to the claim, this criticism is not “a global attempt to contain Russia” but a legitimate concern about human rights and the rule of law in this country. The European Union condemned the arrest of Alexei Navalny and demanded his immediate release. In 2019 the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the charges against Alexei Navalny are politically motivated and arbitrary and manifestly unreasonable. As a signatory of the European Convention on Human Rights, Russia undertook to secure a number of fundamental rights and freedoms to everyone within its jurisdiction.

See other examples in our database, such as claims that the US interferes in Russian politics by posting the routes of pro-Navalny protests; that the US used the pandemic to interfere in the affairs of other countries like Belarus; that the US spreads anti-Russian attitudes by inventing the Skripal case, through the coup d’état in Ukraine and Navalny poisoning; that the Bundestag resolution on the victims of Nazism is interference in Russian internal affairs; or that in 2021, Russia will remain the perfect scapegoat.

A Swedish diplomat was detained during demonstrations in Russia

One Swedish diplomat was detained in connection with an un-sanctioned meeting in Moscow. The man was brought to a police facility. It can be noted that the diplomat was detained at an early stage of the action. He was, as a matter of fact, one of the first to be detained. The name and function of the man has not been disclosed.

Disproof

No Swedish diplomat has been detained. In a statement to the Interfax news agency, the Embassy of Sweden denies the claim.

Western intelligence services prepare a coup d'etat in Russia

Western intelligence services are preparing a coup d’etat in our country; that is not a secret for anyone. But it is important to say once and for all: Russians are able to resist.

Disproof

Un unfounded, recurrent claim on Russia as the object of foreign aggression. Similar cases here.

All Western states are, just as Russia, members of the United Nations and are obliged to respect UN Charter's Article 2:4:

Sputnik V vaccine destroyed the plans of globalists and Judeo Masonic forces

When the Russian vaccine “Sputnik V” came on the scene, and serious success was registered, the globalist or Judeo-Masonic forces that commissioned the new coronavirus immediately realized that what they had planned to do against humanity, at least in some of the target countries, was partially in danger of failing. In addition, it became clear to them from the beginning that a part of humanity would not use their vaccines after being vaccinated with Sputnik V, thus reducing the expected profits from the sale of their vaccines.

Disproof

Anti-Semitism and disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic and vaccination, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a Shadow Government of Globalists ruling the world and aiming to reduce world population through pandemics and vaccination.

This is part of a disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.
