Russia is not occupying Donbas

Summary

The West’s claim that Russia is occupying Donbas is complete nonsense and a lie.

Disproof

Denying the presence of Russian forces in Donbas is a standard pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. 

According to the US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), Russian special forces and troops operated to mobilize, lead, equip, and support separatist militias in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine from spring 2014 to the present, although their presence was denied by Moscow. Overwhelming evidence confirms that Russia participates in the conflict with Ukraine sending mercenaries to Donbas.  

In an interview, delivered in autumn 2018, former First Deputy Chief Monitor to the Organization for Security and Co-operation's Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine Alexander Hug mentions that the Mission has been recording the instances of Russia's involvement into the war in Donbas. "We have been seeing at least in six instances convoys leaving and entering Ukraine, which we have been documenting, which have been driving towards the unsecure border with the Russian Federation in the middle of the night, on dirt roads, and have been seen at the unsecure border at areas where there is no official border crossing," Hug said. 

The war in Eastern Ukraine was provoked by Russia. There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in Eastern Ukraine.

Russia is not a part of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine

Russia is not a contracting party but, like Germany and France, a guarantor power for the self-proclaimed popular republics of Donetsk and Luhansk. Together with Ukraine, they are the ones who have to implement the Minsk agreements, not Russia. If Russia is accused of occupying the Donbas conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine, then this is complete nonsense and lies.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine and the war in Ukraine.

There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in Eastern Ukraine.

American Antichrist and Soros are spreading chaos in post-Soviet space

The goal of the US is to create chaos, so that the Orthodox would kill one another –  Ukrainians would kill Ukrainians, Georgians would kill Georgians, they are also working in Armenia.

It is the Antichrist that came into our home. It is the network of Soros, which does not care about nations, religions, God nor the devil  – they are sowing the chaos in post-Soviet space.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US presence in Europe and George Soros.

FBI, CIA, NSA, the Pentagon, the mainstream media are the enemies of Real America

With the blatant collaboration of nominally “American” forces from the CIA, FBI, NSA, the Pentagon, and MSM who conspired directly with international agencies such as the Five Eyes and MI6 to overthrow Trump, it has become evident that there isn’t one single America, but rather two opposing forces within America acting against each other. The destiny of America is realised in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, BRI. The BRI’s political economic practices are exactly what the best American patriots fought for.

Disproof

A conspiracy theory, presented without evidence, suggesting US intelligence services working against the "Real America". This is a trope, consistent with "the People vs. the Elite" narrative.
