Disinfo: Navalny was about to be extradited from Germany by Interpol on criminal charges


Navalny faces many criminal charges in Russia:

  • He violated the conditions for the suspension of his sentence in the Yves Rocher affair. Found guilty and convicted of a criminal offence, he is required to register at the office of the Federal Service for the Execution of Sentences twice a month. Since September 24 his location is unknown.

  • An investigation has established that he embezzled over €4 million of his NGO organization, FBK , for personal gain (including for his vacations abroad).

  • He slandered former World War II veteran, Ignat Artemenko, on June 2, 2020.

So Alexei Navalny wisely decided to go back in Russia before he was arrested and extradited from Germany by Interpol.


Recurrent narrative stating that the Kremlin's political opponents are criminals and should be arrested in Russia or abroad.

The prosecutions and arrests against Alexey Navalny are of a political nature and not criminal. Josep Borrell, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy declared:

"Russian authorities must respect Alexei Navalny’s rights and release him immediately. Politicisation of the judiciary is unacceptable."

The European Council of the European Union declared on 18 January 2021:

The European Union condemns the detention of the Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny upon his return to Moscow on 17 January and calls for his immediate release. Politicisation of the judiciary is unacceptable and Mr Navalny’s rights must be respected.

See the ECHR's statement on his various arrests including on the Yves Rocher affair. The ECHR ruled that Russia violated Navalny’s rights over numerous arrests and detentions from 2012 to 2014, calling them:

"unlawful and arbitrary" and "politically motivated."

He received compensation of 200,000 Russian roubles as a result of this case.

Moreover, the use of Interpol by Russian authorities against opponents on concealed political ground has been previously documented and denounced.

COVID-19 is a multi-purpose biological weapon

COVID-19 is a dangerous, and in many cases, deadly virus artificially designed to be used against humanity – a biological weapon that has already claimed nearly 2 million lives worldwide and, according to an analysis by the WSJ, puts the actual death toll at more than 2.8 million.

It is very important to note that COVID-19 is a multi-purpose biological weapon, its main goals are to reduce the number of human beings, to destroy the economies of countries, to bring them to their knees, to put states and populations in such a state that they see no way out of the situation other than mass vaccination.


Disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, biological weapons and vaccination, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a "Deep state" or a Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world.

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.

The assault on the Capitol is the new 9/11

The 9/11 incidents led to the beginning of the restriction of basic freedoms in the US, for which Baby Bush had the support of the Pentagon and the Deep State (the CIA, FBI, etc.). And nine years ago, Leon Panetta, US Secretary of Defense with Obama, warned that the US lived a “pre-Pearl Harbour 9/11 cybernetic moments, when four actors -Russia, China, Iran and unspecified terrorist identities- are preparing to attack critical infrastructures in the US”. The United States has been looking for its cyber-Pearl Harbour since then. Now, with the pretext of the coarse assault of the Capitol, the complex Pentagon-Deep State-Wall Street-Silicon Valley is humiliating Trump, when the ‘cybercracy’ censors his accounts in social media. Now, with the 1/6 incidents, there is a triple goal: to impose a new domestic order with a single, globalist-oriented party, and to exorcise Trumpism; the irredentism of the global ‘cybercracy’ to subdue the digital sovereignty of those countries who lack antibodies; and the expansion of the US cyberwar against China and Russia. This is a global ‘cybernetic coup’.


Conspiracy theory not based on any evidence, merging several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the 9/11 attacks as a domestic conspiracy, and about global elites secretly ruling the world, and specifically a so-called ‘Deep State’ in the United States who rule above elected officials. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions and, in this case, to favour Donald Trump by framing him as the victim of a conspiracy.

There is massive evidence that Donald Trump’s supporters organised, coordinated and launched the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021, without any intervention of an alleged ‘Deep State complex’ as a way to discredit Trumpism or to advance a set of secret plans. The article also deliberately distorts the meaning of Leon Panetta’s speech. In an intervention at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York, then-Secretary of Defense Panetta was warning about the cyber-vulnerabilities of his country against foreign or malignant actors, not setting the bases for an alleged action that would serve as a pretext to put in practice a dark agenda.

Ukrainian marines rebel against unknown vaccine testing

Ukrainian marines in Donbas rebelled against the order to undergo mandatory vaccination against coronavirus with an unknown vaccine.

Testing of unknown foreign vaccines began in the Ukrainian military in the Autumn of last year.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the coronavirus pandemic and the US/ West which allegedly controls different processes in Ukraine.

No evidence is given. As for now, Ukraine hasn't received any coronavirus vaccines.
