Disinfo: Since 2018 Armenia is under Anglo-American occupation, similar to Nazi operations

Summary

During the Great Patriotic War, on the occupied territories the Nazis formed police groups from the 5th column of the local population in order to provide physical and propaganda support during the Nazi’s operations. The nature of methods has not changed over the years. Since 2018 they have been widely applied in Armenia. With the launch of Anglo-American punitive actions against Armenia.

A whole army of foreign agents or agents of influence, Soros Hilfspolizei, has been trained for years. Today they carry out the same functions as the Nazi police groups. More than that, they serve the interests of the Anglo-American criminal occupation regime in Armenia.

The punitive operation against the Armenian people will continue. As long as Armenia is under the occupation of the Anglo-American Nazis and their anti-Armenian Soros Hilfspolizei.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory; no evidence given. This disinformation message promotes the concept of a big conspiracy and is consistent with the recurring Shadow Government narrative, which pro-Kremlin disinformation sources often deploy as a rhetorical device to undermine the West and the international liberal-democratic institutional order.

It is also aimed at discrediting a number of democratic and liberal concepts such as civil society, and to question the legitimacy of Armenian state institutions. Above all, this message is in line with the narrative of lost sovereignty, in this case as a result of alleged purposeful actions by global elites.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that global neo-colonialists stage colour revolutions and conquer indigenous national elites, that the Anglo-Saxons rule America “from abroad” and are now trying to control Russia, that Armenia is under Soros occupation, and that agents of Soros are destroying Armenian statehood.

Poland does not want to know the truth about its past

A number of Eastern European countries do not want to know the truth about their past. It is about cooperation with the Nazi occupiers. For example, in Poland, they caught escaped war prisoners and brought them back to the Nazis. The same happened with Jews. National historical schools avoid these facts, especially in Poland. They make their people look more as a victim and do not admit guilt in complicity.

These countries, and Poland, first of all, need to make a moral effort and, finally, recognise the presence of dark spots in their history – cooperation with the Germans. Otherwise, there would not have been so many victims, including among war prisoners.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and part of the ongoing disinformation attack on Poland. It accuses Europe of "covering-up facts about the Second World War". According to this policy, the official Russian historiography is the only “true” way of interpreting the historical events about WWII.

It is an undeniable historical fact that both Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR were totalitarian regimes, which directly caused the deaths of tens of millions of people. Moreover, these two regimes are mutually responsible for the outbreak of WWII. It is a historical fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Thus, the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact enabled the German and Soviet military aggression against Poland in September 1939, which resulted in the occupation of this country by Germany and USSR, triggering the beginning of WWII.

Poles obsessively try to whitewash Hitler’s history

Poles are obsessively attempting to whitewash Hitler’s history after President Vladimir Putin exposed the relationship between Poland and Nazi Germany, and then they begin to accuse the Soviet Union of igniting World War II.

On December 24, Putin called the former Polish ambassador to Nazi Germany, who proposed setting up a statue of Hitler for his promise to expel the Jews to Africa, as “a bastard and anti-Semitic pig.”

The meeting between Hitler and the Polish ambassador Józef Lipski was not the first occasion at which the “Jewish question” was discussed between representatives of Nazi Germany and the government of Poland at the time.

The “Jewish issue” was discussed regularly between the two sides, and on October 24, 1938, German Foreign Minister Ribbentrop announced in a meeting with the aforementioned Polish ambassador that he “sees the question of colonialism and the transfer of Jews as a possibility for cooperation between Poland and Germany.”

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative professing the unimpeachability of Soviet decision-making before and during the Second World War; minimizing the role of the 1939-41 Nazi-Soviet alliance in provoking conflict; and accusing Poland of historical revisionism.

The Nazi-Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939 is an objective fact, not an exercise in revisionism. This two-sided aggression was waged in accordance with the provisions of the Nazi-Soviet pact, which entitled the Third Reich and the USSR to clearly defined spheres of influence in a series of secret protocols.

Canadian military trains Ukrainian snipers and miners to kill Donbas residents

Canadian military trains Ukrainian snipers and miners to kill Donbas residents. Ukrainian miners and snipers are trained under the strict guidance of instructors from Canada.

It is certain that in the near future, pairs of snipers prepared by foreign instructors will fire on the territory of the Luhansk People Republic with the aim of destabilising the situation on the contact line and provoking the defenders of the Republic to retaliate.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about foreign mercenaries in Donbas presented without any evidence. The statements are not confirmed by OSCE SMM reports or any other sources. The last time a Canadian National Defence Ministry delegation visited the site of the Ukrainian United Forces operation was in December 2019.

According to the report of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine, on 10 January at the station in Northern Luhansk, the OSCE observers only noticed four workers from areas outside Ukraine, who were repairing the roof of the roadblock of armed groups. No mercenaries or any foreign delegation on the contact line was reported.
