A ruthless US doesn’t allow Argentina to put an end to hunger

Summary

The US responded to the newly elected president of Argentina with a threat. Alberto Fernández’s plan ‘Argentina without hunger’, which includes the renegotiation of the debt with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as a strategy, found a ruthless answer from the US Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin.

Disproof

This is a deliberate misinterpretation of Steven Mnuchin's statements, whose exact words were that Argentina had a commitment to the IMF and the US expected the new government to uphold it. However, he didn’t close the door to a renegotiation, only pointing out that if Argentina wanted this, they have to present a plan to the IMF for review, as with any other country. Besides, by directly linking Mnuchin’s alleged inflexibility to the hunger reduction programmes, this narrative tries to present the US as responsible for the suffering of the Argentinian people, in line with recurrent Russian disinformation about an evil US to be blamed for many of the world's problems, such as missile proliferation, Europe's disintegration, the promotion of coups and destabilisation all over the world (from Bolivia to Hong Kong, Russia, Syria, Venezuela or Hungary), the downing of Malaysian airlines flights, the sponsorship of religious destabilising movements and terrorism, the ignition of wars and the corruption of human rights.

Money to teach children in kindergartens now goes to migrants in Germany

And in the The German Democratic Republic they also say that kindergartens worked differently. And the early education programme, when in kindergarten, children began to march to sounds from the piano. This actually helps a child to develop. And in modern Germany, there’s no money for that. Why? And that’s where the political slot begins. Because the money goes to migrants.
Disproof
Money for kindergartens in Germany has not been reduced in favour of migrants. On the contrary, the government pledged "in order to ensure a good early childhood education, care and education, the federal government supports those in the Kita expansion with massive financial aid. By 2020, 100,000 additional places will be promoted in day nurseries and childcare."
This type of claim is a recurrent Russian narrative  portraying migrants and refugees as a great source of danger.

Free Russia Forum in Vilnius is an anti-Russian gathering

Free Russia Forum in Vilnius is an anti-Russian gathering.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia in Lithuania.

The Free Russia Forum is an independent platform for Russia’s opposition to discuss issues of Russian and international politics. It is the largest platform of Russia’s opposition outside of the Russian Federation. Hundreds of civil activists are involved in the Forum’s work, including residents of Russia and those who have emigrated. They include activists from over 50 regions of Russia, representing various opposition and human rights organizations.

Macron is a mouthpiece of the Rothschilds, whereas Europe is a puppet of the US and Vatican

Emmanuel Macron’s recent interview to The Economist does not contain his personal beliefs but rather the views of the Rothschild’s oligarchic clan. The thing is Macron has Rothschild political origins, plus The Economist is a mouthpiece of the Rothschilds.

The authors of Emmanuel Macron’s recent interview to The Economist hope for Russia’s “balanced cooperation” with Europe. They want Vladimir Putin to stop counteracting NATO’s enlargement. Apparently, they want Russia to surrender in Donbas, Crimea, and elsewhere. Russia’s real interests are drifting away from Europe’s. Europe is Eurasia’s geopolitical appendix and a puppet of Washington, shadow circles of the Anglo-Saxons and the Vatican.

Disproof

This article is based on conspiracy theories about the Rothschilds' secret influence over international media and EU politicians, and about the EU being under control of the US, the so called Anglo-Saxon world, and the Vatican. It adheres to frequent propagandistic pro-Kremlin narratives about lost sovereignty and some kind of superior government led by powerful financial circles who control the world's political agenda. The referral to "The Rotschilds" is a well-known Anti-Semitic trope.
