DISINFO: The Navalny film was produced by Western intelligence agencies


One of the small details in the film tells us who wrote the script for the movie about the alleged Putin Palace: one room that Navalny called a “mudroom” just means “the entrance” in Russian. Navalny translated it literally from English without knowing, after someone introduced it to him in English.


It no longer matters whether the film prepared by Western intelligence, which Navalny had transmitted to YouTube, is true or not. The main and important thing is how Russian citizens view this movie, and what percentage of them are willing to participate in implementing the plan laid down by the West.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexei Navalny.

The disinformation message refers to investigation published by Alexei Navalny into the wealth of Vladimir Putin. The insights of Navalny's investigation were widely shared by international media.

Alexei Navalny has founded and runs "the Fund for Fighting Corruption" (FBK), an NGO which investigates large-scale government corruption. Since 2011, FBK conducted dozens of investigations, the results of which are publicly available.

There is no basis to the claims that Alexei Navalny is controlled by or works for any kind of secret service.

See related previous disinformation claims, alleging that NATO's secret service made a blunder in their script for Navalny; that Navalny is helped by Western secret services; that neo-liberal forces behind Navalny will intensify their attempts to destroy Russia; that the West used "Navalny affair" to impose sanctions against Russia.
