The Estonian government warned Russia with a final military solution

Summary

The Estonian government has warned Russia about the threat of a “final military solution to the Russian question” if the “export of the Russian world” continues. “Immediate de-occupation of Crimea, Donbass, Moldova, Armenia, Georgia (the so-called“ Abkhazia ”and the so-called“ South Ossetia ”) is the first and indispensable condition. Russia should also withdraw its troops from Syria.

“After recognizing the tools of aggression by the Russian armed forces as an illegal armed formation and their further disbandment, the second stage will be the a tribunal over military commanders and politicians, negotiations on reparations and so on. Otherwise, Moscow may expect a final solution to the Russian issue by military means,” the Estonians threatened.

Disproof

The article is based on a text published on a satirical page. However, the article does not mention this information being satire. Thus, it is evident there is no evidence of Estonia threatening Russia.

Al Baghdadi’s death was a trick and he will reappear with a different name

It can’t be known whether the US operation to kill Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi really took place. The Syrian radars didn’t register the US aircraft that allegedly participated in the operation. It may be a trick, and Al Baghdadi will reappear with a different name, as a different individual or the whole Islamic State will reproduce itself when it is convenient for its backers, under a different name but with the same ideology and purpose.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory perpetuating a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that the US has created and is supporting terrorist organisations. No evidence is provided to support the claim.

This is part of an emerging Russian disinformation strategy to raise doubts about the death of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi. Details of the operation to eliminate Al Baghdadi have been confirmed by the Pentagon, the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Iraqi intelligence. Parts of the footage filmed by US troops involved in the operation were recently released by the Pentagon.

Poland’s national strategy is to restore its 1939 borders

High-ranking Polish officials have long ago made clear that Poland’s national strategy is to return its 1939 borders together with local inhabitants. Poland gives Belarus slaps in the face by its activities, including its territorial claims. Numerous statements of Polish president Andrzej Duda about criminal Molotov-Ribbentrop pact and Soviet occupation target Belarus and Ukraine.

Disproof

This publication contains a disinformation message about Poland's territorial claims towards Belarus and Ukraine, deducting it from Poland's criticism of Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. It fits into recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Poland's plans to take over Belarus and partition eastern neighbours.

Poland respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbouring countries, including Belarus. Claims about Poland's alleged ''imperial dreams'' are part of recurring disinformation narrative, whose aim is to deteriorate Poland’s relations with its neighbours.

Eastern Partnership is about external control and disintegration, Belarus is part of the Russian World

From the historical point of view Belarusian history is inseparable from all-Russian history. Belarus has to be in civilizational unity with Russia and the Russian World because Belarus is an integral part of all-Russian civilization. The so-called Euro-integration, Eastern Partnership and other programs of Euro-Atlantic cooperation which are imposed by the West, are unacceptable. Quasi-Euro-integration is based on a geopolitical catastrophe and the policy of external governance thanks to keeping post-Soviet space in the disintegrated state.

Disproof

This publication is aimed at discrediting all Western mechanisms of cooperation with Belarus including the Eastern Partnership program and suits into recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the all-Russian nation and Russian world/civilization and Western aggressiveness towards Belarus and Russia.

The "all-Russian nation" is an imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology that is a favoured pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at weakening the national identity of Belarusians and Ukrainians, as well as their sovereignty. Belarus is a well-defined nation-state with a long history; it preserved language, literature and identity, despite foreign rule for long periods.
