Summary

President Petro Poroshenko is preparing an armed provocation on the Ukrainian-Russian border. It will take place at the end of December. Kyiv coordinates such moves with Western curators and confidants. Poroshenko is being advised to keep the military actions low key, so that it is still possible to enact propaganda that the Russians are attacking Ukraine.

The US organized a color revolution in France, to get rid of Macron

‘In recent years, Russophobia would take center stage in foreign policy designs of the United States.’

‘And even though Frenchmen are always kin to fight for their rights even in the world where erosion of social security is now a global trend, it’s truly alarming that today’s protests across France bear all the attributes of a color revolution. And by this point, Washington has staged enough of those all across the globe to perfect its tools. And since Washington’s main goal is to remove Emmanuel Macron from power, it’s no wonder that protesters are chanting: “Macron must leave.”’

‘It’s also particularly curious that any such provocation staged by the United States and Britain would typically be accompanied by a media campaign, aimed at distracting the public opinion from the real perpetrators of such protests. This time was no different, as Ukrainian intelligence agencies in a bid to please Washington tried to misguide French media sources into searching for a Russian trace behind the protests, but no evidence of Moscow having anything to do with it has been presented to them so far.’

Disproof

A conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western Russophobia.

No evidence given.

Russia was not involved in 2016 US elections, it was Mossad, UAE, al Qaeda and ISIS

‘Mueller’s investigators have found that the 2016 election really involved many nations with the key violators Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, not Russia at all, according to sources.’
‘In addition, investigation of social media manipulation by Google and Facebook has led back to the Mossad, not Russia. In fact, the trail to Russia has, for the most part, been paved by fake evidence placed on the net by Google and Facebook, evidence to make Russia look guilty while, in actuality, it was Israel that led the way.’
‘According to investigation insiders, [Eric] Prince, working closely with Mark Zuckerberg and Jared Cohen of Google Ideas group, and backed by companies such as Mossad run PsyGroup, planned a broad program of social media manipulation that had initially been blamed on Russia, but now really tied to Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and, in fact, the terror organizations al Qaeda and ISIS.’

Disproof

Many Russian citizens have already been charged by the US over interference in the American Presidential election in 2016. The part of the Russian disinformation attack on the American elections which was carried out by the St. Petersburg “troll factory” was a more than two-year long operation involving dozens of employees, hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of dollars. The campaign also included purchasing election advertisement, which focused on race, LGBT, religion and guns. Russian military intelligence officers created false online personas and websites in order to stage the release of stolen election-related documents, falsely claiming their activities were the work of ‘American hacktivists’.

The indictment from the U.S. Department of Justice also shows how employees at the “troll factory” in St. Petersburg receive instructions about which messages they should push in social media and online debates.

EU’s new action plan against disinformation provides for strengthening surveillance of online platforms

EU’s new action plan against disinformation provides for strengthening surveillance of online platforms.

Disproof

The EU's action plan against disinformation does not impose surveillance on social media companies.

Instead the Commission will, with the help of the European Regulators Group for Audio-visual Media Services (ERGA), monitor the implementation of the commitments by the signatories of the Code of Practice and will regularly inform on whether and to what extent individual platforms are meeting these commitments.
