With the participation of German soldiers in the largest NATO manoeuvre since the end of the Cold War against Russia, the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, is breaking a taboo that is likely to prevent the Russian Federation and the Russian people from achieving exactly what was made possible by grand gestures and rational action: lasting peace and possible reconciliation. The “NATO-West” cannot make peace, it can only make war, whether cold or hot. NATO’s manoeuvre, which begins at the end of January 2020, is a “manoeuvre of shame” that serves only the warmongers.
Conspiracy theory and part of the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about lost sovereignty. 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. No evidence is given to support the speculative claim that Armenian authorities are foreign agents.
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, that Armenia is under Anglo-American occupation, and that Open Society Foundations-Armenia, as well as dozens of other foundations and NGOs in Armenia, are serving foreign agendas aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood.
