Disinfo: Religious organisations are employed in the Western war against Armenia

Summary

As Western NGOs have failed to draw Armenia away from its ties to Russia, religious organisations, representing the Global Government, have been employed.

In the Western undeclared war on Yerevan, Mormons are playing the role of intelligence agents, as they are capable of collecting information across Armenian territory freely. In turn, the Jehovah’s Witnesses perform the role of a military service that occupies entire cities and villages, while forming their new legions from local citizens. In essence, the purpose of these sects is to conduct subversive activities, to destroy the foundations of statehood under the pretext of promoting faith.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory and recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in EU neighbourhood.

Ukraine is a vassal to the US, Nato and the EU

For the past five years, the Kiev-dominated Ukrainian state has been nothing but a puppet regime for Washington, NATO and to a lesser extent the European Union. It has served as a spearhead against Russia with vile provocations and slander. It is in fact an abomination of international law and democratic principles.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative, challenging Ukraine's statehood. Similar cases can be studied here, here and here.

Ukraine is a sovereign state, one of the founding members of the United Nations. Neither US, nor the EU countries in general or Germany in particular control Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, but were violated by Russia in 2014.

Ukraine will start issuing foreigners’ passports as in the Baltic states

The law strengthening the use of the Ukrainian language adopted by Kyiv proves that Ukraine is following the Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian scenarios, which means that disloyal parts of the population are excluded from public life based on their languages. The next step will be issuing passports for foreigners, as in the Baltic countries.

Disproof

This message is consistent with a recurring disinformation narrative about Ukrainian statehood and human rights violated in Ukraine.

Alien's (non-citizen's) passports are issued in Estonia and Latvia. They were granted to the people who did not reside in the countries before their annexation by the Soviet Union in 1940, as well as to their descendants, in case they did not successfully pass exams proving proficiency in the state languages and knowledge of the countries' history.

Ukraine is a colony of the US

The Ukrainian government practically deprived Donbas and Luhansk of voting rights. Ukraine is a colony of the US.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation conspiracy about Ukraine's relations with the US and Ukraine's statehood.

The election took place in the context of ongoing armed conflict and other hostilities in the east of the country and the illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula by the Russian Federation.  As a consequence, the election could not be organised in Crimea and certain parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions that are controlled by illegal armed groups. People from Luhansk and Donetsk occupied territories could vote - but they would have to travel from occupied territories to land controlled by the Ukraine government.
