Disinfo: NATO’s Space plan will lead to disastrous consequences

Summary

Americans bet on the militarisation of Space, and their main task is to conduct all kinds of military operations outside the national territories. Therefore, NATO works in three areas of military operations: in the geocentric near-Earth cyberspace, on Earth’s electromagnetic field and poles control aiming to take under control the existing climate chaos, and on the planet’s gravitational field.

All these will lead to the disastrous consequences for the entire world community. The nuclear weapons will simply seem like baby babble.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO, portraying Alliance as a threat because of aggressive agenda, claiming that American and NATO policies are a threat to world peace and security. All added up with a conspiracy theory on US/NATO forces performing experiments with climate weapons.

In June 2019, Defence Ministers agreed NATO’s first-ever space policy. Space should be a new operational domain for NATO – alongside air, land, sea and cyber. They recognized that space is part of our daily lives, and while it can be used for peaceful purposes, it can also be used for aggression: "Satellites can be hacked, jammed, or weaponised. Anti-satellite weapons could cripple communications. It is therefore important that we are vigilant and resilient – also in space.”

Crimea regained its Russian identity

Crimea regained Russian identity in 2014. Previously, since the early 1950s, it was under the administration of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Ukraine, one of the republics of the Soviet Union.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Crimea being a historical part of Russia.

After the collapse of the USSR, Russia reaffirmed respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine. In particular, the 1997 Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between the Russian Federation and Ukraine enshrines the recognition of the inviolability of each other’s borders, the absence of discrimination against representatives of each nationality and the desire for cooperation in various fields. The Treaty also allowed Russia to keep its Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, under a lease that has been extended until 2042.

The US and UK interfere in Europe’s affairs and try to destabilise it

The second most important reason [behind the destabilisation of the political situation in Europe] is the interference of outside powers, especially the United States and Britain, in the political life of continental Europe. The United States has no interest in reshaping the EU into a strong and capable structure. That would threaten America’s interests in Europe.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US presence in Europe, portraying Europe as a vassal of the USA and trying to undermine the sovereignty of European countries. Additionally, the claim that the UK interferes in European affairs and aims to destabilise it is completely baseless and not backed up with any evidence.

In fact, the EU Member States are sovereign countries and make sovereign decisions about their own security and policies. The US is an important ally to the EU but EU policy is not determined by the US, as explained by the EU High Representative.
