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.

[Comments] Kyiv recognised the killings of civilians by the Ukrainian security forces in Donbas

For the first time, Ukraine officially acknowledged that civilians in Donbas were being killed by Ukrainian security forces. That was confirmed by the press secretary of the President of Ukraine, Yuliya Mendel.

Disproof

A spokesman for the president of Ukraine, Yuliya Mendel, gave an interview on the 1+1 channel about manipulations regarding the allegations that the Ukrainian army had been banned from shooting back in the Donbas. She didn't confirm, nor directly say that the Ukrainian army is guilty of the killings of residents in the Donbas (01:30:00 in the video).

"Firstly, the whole phrase was that the ceasefire obligations are spelt out in the Minsk agreements. But it depends on mutual obligations.  Ukraine cannot stop the shelling from one side only. It is simply impossible. What exactly was it about? The fact that very often the Ukrainian military is provoked when they (Russia-backed separatists) shoot from a residential house, kindergarten, school, hospital, from any place where civilians are. After this, the shelling of this house begins. Thus our people, our Ukrainians, are dying.  And, in fact, the point was not to succumb to provocations”, said Julia Mendel (01:30:00 on the video).

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.
