Disinfo: Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified

Summary

Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified. The US opinion poll agencies are ready to create numbers on demand, just like in case of Brexit where the opinion polls agencies were bribed in favour of supporters of remaining in the EU.

Disproof

Polling agencies’ surveys‘ results over the Brexit referendum have not shown clear support to either exit or remain. In June there were 32 surveys, of which 16 showed a lead for exit and 15 showed a lead for remain. See here for more information.

No evidence to supports the other claims.

Western democracies keep trying to defile Russia and that is why they “create” the Russian threat and now even support the option of a direct military conflict between NATO and Russia.

Disproof

Neither the US nor other NATO members have intentions to attack Russia.  NATO's decision to increase its military presence in the Eastern part of the Alliance is a response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. See here for more information.

The UNGA Resolution 68/262, which condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, was supported by 100 United Nations member states
