On the eve of the presidential elections in Russia, US media is attempting to split Russia and start a civil war

Summary

[During the presidential campaign in Russia, the US media like RFE/RL and Voice of America …] is agitating. On Russia’s sovereign territory and in the languages of the peoples of Russia. This is directed towards our people. They want to split us. They want to make us quarrel with each other. They want to involve us in a civil war.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given.

The US bets on reducing the turnout in Russia’s presidential elections to below 45 percent

On a tactical level, our overseas opponents staked on the maximum drop in turnout and delegitimization of the results of the voting on March 18. They even set specific “planks”: to recognize turnout only at the level of no more than 45 percent.

 

     

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. Neither the US nor the EU stated their wish to reduce or assess the turnout in Russia’s presidential elections to below 45 percent.

Next-generation nuclear weapons unveiled by Vladimir Putin in his state of the nation address have been designed with one goal: to save peace

What we heard on March 1 [Putin’s state of the nation address] is, perhaps, a scientific and technical version of the Munich speech [Putin’s speech in Munich in 2007]. This is a technological Munich speech. And how should we name the missile [next-generation cruise missiles unveiled by Putin]? It can be called “The Peacemaker”, for example. Because its purpose is to save peace. This is peace.

Disproof

This is not how president Vladimir Putin presented it. In the nearly two-hour TV film World Order 2018, Russian president Vladimir Putin tells host Vladimir Solovyov: “This is called reciprocal strike.” “If there is this decision to destroy Russia then we have a legal right to respond.” “Yes, this would be a global catastrophe for humanity but I, as a citizen of Russia and the head of the Russian state would like to ask you this—what do we need a world for if there is no Russia in it?” www.newsweek.com/putin-russia-nuclear-war-834553,

The US and the UK ordered the use of chemical weapons in Syria

The Syrian government has always refused allegations that it used chemical weapons, while now there is proof that the American and British governments ordered terrorists in Eastern Ghouta to use chemical weapons and then accuse the Syrian government of committing those acts. The orders were given to the jihadists of Tahrir al-Sam, Fajlak al-Rahman and Ahrar al-Sam.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about chemical weapons in Syria.euvsdisinfo.eu/smear-campaign-against-civilian-rescuers-in-syria-continues/,

No evidence supporting the claims. In November 2017, a UN Security Council-mandated investigation concluded that both ISIL and the Syrian government had been responsible for chemical attacks in Syria news.un.org/en/story/2017/11/570192-both-isil-and-syrian-government-responsible-use-chemical-weapons-un-security, .
