The Czech Republic will deploy an American military base, just as Poland did

Summary

Czech Defence Minister Lubomir Metnar, in an interview to the newspaper Právo, did not exclude the possibility of talks in NATO on the possible deployment of new military bases in Europe, also in the Czech Republic, in case of the deterioration of the international relations following the disintegration of the INF.

Previously, Czech Premier Andrej Babiš, commenting on the withdrawal of both the US and Russia from the INF, stated that he would not like to return to the cold war times.

Disproof

The title of the original article is misleading, manipulative and does not reflect the content of the interview with the minister adequately by turning a possibility in to a certainty.

In fact, in his interview the Defence Minister of the Czech Republic said the following: "We'll see what will happen in six months, after it becomes possible to return to the [INF] treaty. It's possible that the situation will deteriorate then and I do not exclude the option that the Alliance [NATO] will have such a discussion [to deploy a missile defence system or missiles in the Czech Republic]".

Financial oligarchs tied to US put Macron in the seat of the President of France

In the span of the 4 months financial oligarchs put Macron in the seat of the President.The Yellow vests protests are happening because he was enforced on France, as these financial oligarchs are directly linked to the US. American financial elites played a big role in the current political troubles of Macron.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no evidence given.

Emmanuel Macron is the democratically elected President of France.

A dying EU promotes an anti-Russian, anti-democratic agenda

The European Union is a stinking corpse, which poisons the political and moral atmosphere of Europe. Actual EU policies do not have anything to do with real democracy. Old EU members play a role of the masters of democracy and human rights, whereas new EU member states such as Poland and the Baltics do the dirty work by promoting EU’s and NATO’s disintegration and an anti-Russian agenda to the East. Political regimes in new EU Member States consciously create confrontations and escalate the situation along the whole perimeter of the Eastern Slavic civilisation.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives on the EU's moral decay and Western belligerence.

EU prepares Maidan in Belarus

Aware of ongoing disagreements, the EU has intensified its efforts to bring even larger discord in Russia-Belarus relations by continuing to provide financial assistance to Belarus’ civil society. The EU will use the same methods of colour revolutions that it has already applied in many other Eurasian countries. Support to the youth, scientific community and NGOs as well as nationalists will remain the EU priority. The information war is another important element to control zombie Belarusians and make them organise a Maidan.

Disproof

EU assistance to Belarus aims at improving the quality of life of Belarusian citizens in a tangible and visible manner, by strengthening its economy, governance, connectivity and society. Find out more about the EU assistance to Belarus here.

This disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in EU neighbourhood and to arrange 'Belarusian Maidan'. Examples of earlier disinformation with a similar narrative here and here.
