Disinfo: Robert Mueller’s report: There are no traces of Russia’s interference in US elections

Summary

Robert Mueller’s report found no trace of Russia’s interference in the 2016 US elections.

Disproof

Recurring narrative on Russian interference in 2016 US elections.

Although Robert Mueller's investigation was concluded with no proof of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, it did conclude that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Mueller's report determined that there were "two main Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election".

Further debunking by The Insider.

By promoting colour revolutions, the West is threatening the world peace

The West has a powerful arsenal of interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states, which has become a serious threat to the international security.

All colour revolutions have the same ‘modus operandi’. The West provides informational and economic support to protesters and applauds the overthrow of governments by force, while bringing their puppets to power. Then a country that suffers from the coup becomes dependent on the outside, which ruins its economy, impoverishes the population and triggers crime and abuse.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the West or the US behind colour revolutions, with no evidence. It has been applied, among others, to Ukraine, to Venezuela and yellow vests protests, as well as to justify a deceiving narrative on the aggressive West, preparing new coups.

NATO is the ‘North Atlantic Terror Organisation’

NATO is the world’s largest terrorist organisation, the ‘North Atlantic Terror Organisation’. It is the biggest criminal, the biggest terrorist organisation in the world, which not only camouflaged its crimes in Serbia 20 years ago, but is still doing so today, all over the world, for example, right now in Venezuela; it has also conquered Ukraine.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, portraying NATO as a terrorist organisation, a threat to peace and having a belligerent agenda.

NATO is a defensive alliance, whose purpose is to protect its member states. It is regularly updating the military requirements for civilian infrastructure, at a time when there are increased challenges to security.

If Poroshenko wins the elections, he will start a war against Russia

If the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko wins the upcoming elections, he will have to start an armed conflict with Russia to help the US in weakening it.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the Ukraine elections 2019 and West's meddling.

In fact, it was Russia that provoked a war in Ukraine. The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February 2014 when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government.
