Disinfo: Soros Foundation is organising clashes in Armenia

Summary

Soros Foundation is working on the destruction of Armenia. Therefore, the foundation’s office in Armenia must be closed. The foundation workers and people cooperating with them are foreign agents. Their activities should be prohibited.

In addition, the Soros Foundation is organising clashes in Armenia. They want the Armenians to come out against the people of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). They want civil war and blood.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives portraying philanthropist George Soros as a menace bent on destroying Armenia. See here for similar cases.

Soros Foundation has been supporting human rights, education, research, media and other democratic activities in Armenia since 1997.

The West promotes Russophobia in Georgia

The West intentionally promotes Russophobia in Georgia. And it was started by Georgian dissidents 30 years ago. Abkhazia and Tskhinvali lost in 1988-89 when Georgian dissidents started to spread Russophobia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia.

See here for other disinformation cases about Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

The US and the EU govern Georgia

No sovereign Georgia exists. Real governors and legislators sit in Washington, Brussels, Strasbourg, and the Venice Commission. Georgia fulfils their will.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative as if Georgia is ruled by the West and cooperation with the Western institutions destroys the country's sovereignty.

Media Development Foundation's media monitoring results revealed that the narrative that the West is meddling in sovereign affairs of Georgia and virtually run the country, is one of the main trends of anti-Western propaganda in the country.

The project ‘Ukraine’ is over

There is no doubt that Ukraine was one of the geopolitical projects. Under the temporary government of Kerensky, it pursued one goal, during the Soviet Union the goal was another, and then a different goal in the post-Soviet era. Finally, Ukraine became a headache.

The project ‘Ukraine’ is now over. A viable and complete Ukraine is no longer needed. Neither the geopolitical poles, nor the regional and neighbouring states, nor the people who are in conflict need this country. Now Ukraine is like a deadly wounded animal, and every interested party wants to get a bigger piece.

Disproof

This is recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative undermining Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a sovereign nation-state, not a project. In 1991 Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union. The Declaration of State Sovereignty of Ukraine was adopted on July 16, 1990, Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation-state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc. Ukraine is a sovereign, independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament.
