The Swiss are provocateurs who want to escalate tensions between the West and Russia

The Swiss are “provocateurs” who want to escalate tensions [between Russia and the West], as they always used to. They can sense war is coming. It is without doubt that the war will come, its form is yet unclear. Now, world coalitions are being formed – this is what happened before WWI, as well as before WWII.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the West. No sign of any Swiss provocation.

Hillary Clinton dedicated her thesis to Lucifer

By the way, when an odious woman, Hillary Clinton, running for the U.S. presidency, was graduating from the university, she dedicated her thesis to Lucifer as “one of the first fighters for democracy and freedom.

Disproof

The disinformation message originates in a Russian language website, translated into Georgian. The claim that Hillary Clinton’s thesis was about Lucifer is manipulative: one of Clinton’s papers involved criticism of the community organization model by Saul Alinsky. The book by Alinsky that Clinton referred to, was about radicalism and discussion or acknowledgement of Lucifer was not its main concept. Further debunking by Myth Detector.

Secret documents: America recognises the independence of Abkhazia

Alleged secret documents show that “within the internationally UN recognised borders of Georgia, the USA recognises the sovereignty of three legal entities: Georgia, Abkhazia and South Ossetia”.

Disproof

There is no evidence that USA has recognized the independence of Abkhazia, quite the opposite - last year president Donald Trump signed an act that eliminates funding for countries that recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia that are occupied by Russia. In May, US Department of State issued a statement saying "We fully support Georgia’s sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders".

The recognition of territories Russia has occupied - Crimea, Abkhazia and South Ossetia - is a recurring theme in pro-Kremlin media which has also been ascribed to the EU.
