Disinfo: The 2016 Russian interference in elections never existed


It is now known, four years later, that there was no Russian interference in the 2016 elections and that Trump was right. The American intelligence services were run by Leftists, people who stayed from the Obama days and left a firecracker in the kitchen with that famous January 2017 report on the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, which never existed.

In 2018, Trump said what he thought was the truth. He had seen that there had been no interference in 2016, he knew it very well. The only thing that was found was $ 200,000 worth of Facebook advertising purchased by Russian entities after the election. Not during the elections. After. So, it was completely crazy. And this whole Russian interference file was held by one guy; Christopher Steel, a former British service official who may have been a Russian agent, it is quite possible. He is the one who invented tricks from Trump in Moscow etc. ... and unfortunately it took three years to establish that.


Recurrent claim about Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential elections.

The Mueller report of March 2019 contains many details about how Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, both by using social media to influence American voters with disinformation and by hacking into the Clinton campaign’s computers. 

A previous (2017) report prepared by the US Intelligence Community analysed the motivation and scope of the Kremlin's intentions for the US election and the Kremlin's use of cyber tools and media campaigns to influence US public opinion. The report concluded that Moscow interfered in the US elections and that it had carried out this effort "in sweeping and systematic fashion". As concluded earlier by the US intelligence community and by Mueller’s own inquiry: “the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts”.

Mueller's report determined that there were "two main Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election". The first involved attempts by the Internet Research Agency to conduct disinformation and social media operations in the US to sow social discord, with the aim of interfering with the election. The second involved the Russian government's efforts to conduct computer hacking operations designed to gather and disseminate information to influence the election.

Disinfo: The West is letting the Syrian people starve because of sanctions

The West could not destroy Syria with war - now it is letting the people starve with sanctions.

Sadistic because, while the sanctions provided by this law ostensibly target the Syrian government and its allies to punish alleged "war crimes" against civilians and deter further ones - in reality, they inflict endless suffering on those same Syrian civilians.

Sanctions are among the deadliest of all weapons that can be used in hybrid warfare against the people of an attacked country. At the same time that sanctions are in place, the West is stealing the oil, burning the food, or creating it outside of Syria to sell-all to rob the Syrian people of their own resources, of the wealth of their own country.

And may such Western representatives, completely devoid of any moral integrity, continue to bombard Syria and Russia with one accusation after another: It is abundantly clear that the suffering of Syrians is a product of the illegal war against Syria and the murderous, criminal sanctions against the Syrian people.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Syrian war and the belligerent intentions of the West towards Syria.

Within the context of the Syrian conflict, EU sanctions, imposed since 9 May 2011, respond to the repression perpetrated on the Syrian people by the Syrian Assad regime and its supporters, including through the use of live ammunition against peaceful protesters and the regime’s involvement in the proliferation and use of chemical weapons.

Disinfo: Ukrainian regime is a terrorist organisation

The regime in Kyiv did not start yesterday its crimes, which cannot be interpreted otherwise than acts of terror. From the beginning of its existence, the militants of the "Maidan", the main component of the coup d'etat, have committed terrorist acts. For seven years, the post-Maidan authorities have acted and are acting as a terrorist organisation.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative alleging that Ukraine is a state supporting terrorism and that the Ukrainian government assumed power after the coup d'etat.

Ukraine is not a terrorist state, it does not support terrorism in any form. The Ukrainian government does not support or finance terrorist groups. The Ukrainian government is recognised by other governments across the world.

Disinfo: Russian-speakers are still openly discriminated against, especially in the Baltic states

Russian-speaking people are still openly discriminated against in some countries. Discrimination is aimed at the Russian language and education in the Russian language. The Russian-speaking people are forced to sever the link with the historical homeland.

The scandals linked to the discrimination against the Russian language permanently happen in the Baltic states and, especially, in Latvia.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on the Baltic countries, accusing them of violation of human rights of the Russian-speaking minority.

The Baltic states are democratic countries, which respect human rights and do not discriminate or oppress any persons because of their citizenship and political opinions. In the ranking Freedom in the World (by Freedom House) Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia marked as “free” countries. Read more about the real situation with human rights in LithuaniaLatvia and Estonia.
