Disinfo: The global deep state turned Eastern Europe in a territory of plunder and devastation

Summary

Western Europe fell to its knees before the murdered George Floyd, but it continues to exploit its slaves from Eastern Europe in a brutal way. The global capital, the deep state destroys everything in its path. It needs the territory inhabited by thoughtless creatures without history and remembrance, which will serve and become slaves. The global deep state has destroyed the countries of Eastern Europe, turning them in the territory destined for plunder and devastation.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

Deep state is a popular conspiracy theory, which promotes the narrative about a global elite secretly ruling the world. In most cases, the “deep state” is referred to as American elites, which promote aggressive wars and prevent US reconciliation with Russia. The idea of a "deep state" has always been very popular among conspiracy theorists. Its manifestations might be different, but generally, the concept conjures up the image of a small group of men, deciding the fate of the world behind the scenes.

The statement that Eastern Europe has been turned into a “territory of devastation” is not supported by economic data. After the collapse of the Communist Block, most of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe have faced impressive economic growth, becoming one of the most dynamic parts of Europe.

Crimea’s re-unification with Russia was legal

US Ambassador in Athens Geoffrey Pyatt insists that Crimea’s reunification with Russia was illegal. He forgets that no illegal annexation took place and that the citizens of Crimea decided in a democratic referendum in 2014 and with huge majority to re-unite with the motherland. It was the United States which was intervening in Ukraine’s domestic affairs as evidenced by the phone call between Pyatt, who was the US Ambassador in Kiev in 2014 and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State on European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland. Pyatt and Nuland were discussing the composition of the new Ukrainian government.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea.

Crimea is a part of Ukraine and was illegally annexed by Russia. In 2014, Russian troops obliged the parliament of Crimea to organise a referendum, which was illegitimate under international law, and then formally annexed the peninsula and brought it under Russian territorial control. The annexation has been condemned by the UNGA (see the resolution A/RES/68/262 on the territorial integrity of Ukraine).

In February 2014, a violent coup d’état took place in Kyiv

In February 2014, a violent coup d’état took place in Kyiv, when the then Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was forced to flee as a result of dozens of unsolved murders during the fighting between activists and police forces and violent threats by radical right-wing forces.

With their first act in power, the Maidan forces showed what they were most interested in and thereby confirmed the fears that the Maidan revolution was much more of a nationalist coup d’état than an emancipatory act.

Disproof

There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014; this is a longstanding pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's Euromaidan protests.

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction from several segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013, after pressure from Russia.

Clashes in Hong Kong are financed and organised by the US in order to destabilise China

Clashes in Hong Kong are financed and organised by the US in order to destabilise China. The US, which is dominated by neoconservatives, is hostile to both China and Russia because both countries are obstacles to American hegemony.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Hong Kong protests are supported and funded by US and/or by other Western states.  

The  pro-Kremlin media frequently use disinformation narratives about popular protests allegedly incited and  funded by the US around the world, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others.
