In an exclusive interview, a US citizen revealed the true state of things in Donbas despite CIA propaganda. He explained that [Ukrainian president Petro] Poroshenko was a US puppet, and that a foreign government came and carried out a coup in the presidential elections. The US wanted more influence in Ukraine because it wanted to stop the supply of Russian gas to Europe and to expand NATO along the Russian border. For this reason, the US interfered in Ukraine’s internal affairs and started a war in Eastern Ukraine. Donbas’ citizens had no alternative but to take up weapons in face of what was basically an invasion of their country.
There is an orchestrated campaign against Bernie Sanders by US “freedom of expression champions” such as The New York Times and The Washington Post, and if it is necessary to link him to Russia, let’s do it, people will swallow it anyway. If they have to invent that Vladimir Putin is the virus of US democracy, they will continue to do so, because who cares that there are no arguments? They can simply frame it as ‘highly likely’ because it always works.
Russian attempts to interfere in US elections 2020 have already been well documented. In February 2020, US intelligence officers warned lawmakers that Russia was about to help both Donald Trump and Democratic aspiring candidate Bernie Sanders. Some of these efforts were described by social media investigation company Graphika in a report published in October 2019, which includes ample evidence of this process. Facebook also repeatedly suspended Russian accounts targeting US voters in the last months of 2019.
This is part of a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative denying Russia’s interference in foreign elections despite overwhelming evidence, both in the US and in other countries. You can see other examples of disinformation about this subject, such as allegations that neither the US Intelligence Committee report nor the Mueller report found any evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 US elections, that there is no proof that Russia tried to influence the Brexit referendum or about the role played by RT and Sputnik in these and other processes, that “absurd” accusations against Russia are an attempt to demonise it, or that the US and UK are indeed the ones who try to interfere in Europe.
