Disinfo: The systemic collapse of American society is now obvious

Summary

The systemic collapse of American society has been underway for a long time. This collapse is now obvious.  Organized violence and looting are taking place in many American cities with pre-deliveries of bricks as weapons of destruction. Police and government officials are kneeling in submission to the rioters. The police have no support and are abdicating. Businesses are being destroyed. We are now experiencing the consequences of decades of teaching black Americans to hate white Americans and of teaching white Americans to accept guilt for the black slave trade that originated in the black Kingdom of Dahomey in 1600.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about racial justice protests in US.

Despite high polarisation in the US, the unrest after the death of African American citizen George Floyd at the hands of a police officer is not a civil war and has not triggered a collapse of American society. The situation was very tense for some days and protests spread to all 50 states, while demonstrations in some cities descended into riots  and widespread looting. However, military top officials and police officers worked effectively to de-escalate the situation, and demonstrations became largely peaceful after the first days.

Predictions about a new American civil war and a disintegration of the US have been a common pro-Kremlin narrative since the fall of the Soviet Union.

Read a similar case claiming that the current unrest in the US is a civil war.

Lithuania’s president is the EU’s puppet, Lithuania is not sovereign

Lithuania’s policy towards Belarus is ambiguous. On the one hand, the Lithuanian leadership criticises Belarus. On the other hand, its economy is very dependent on Belarusian tourists. Without them, Lithuania’s membership of the EU would probably not last for a year. Lithuania can be named the country without a president, because its president is a puppet of the EU’s government. Lithuanians have lost their sovereignty due to the irresponsible actions of their government.

Disproof

This publication is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about lost sovereignty and socio-economic degradation in the Baltic countries.

Lithuania is an independent state, which makes sovereign decisions about its foreign and domestic policy. Its president is not the EU's, or any foreign country's, puppet. 2019 statistics show that the Baltic states demonstrated one of the leading economic growth indicators in the EU. The dynamics within the last years can be seen here.

US feeds Polish, Austrian, and Hungarian imperialistic ambitions

The Three Seas Initiative received a new impetus in 2016 due to migration crisis in the EU. The US sees it as a geopolitical buffer and develops close cooperation with its twelve member states with the aim of counteracting the development of gas transportation infrastructure between Russia and Western Europe.

The American political class feeds the ambitions of the Three Seas Initiative countries for its own interests. Poland dreams of becoming the center of restored Rzeczpospolita, Hungary wishes to gather the lands under King Saint Stephen, and Austria would like to return to the Habsburg Empire’s possessions. When the situation presents itself, these countries will oppose the EU and attempt to return to their imperial past.

The EU has become the USSR’s antipode. Upon victory in the Cold War, the West began to enlarge eastward at expense of east European countries, which it previously devastated.

 

Disproof

This article is consistent with pro-Kremlin propaganda narratives about the US presence in Europe, alleging that the United States controls the foreign policy of EU member states, the EU's imminent collapse and about Poland's ''imperial dreams''.

The statement that the Three Seas Initiative is an anti-Russian and anti-EU project fully controlled by the USA is a conspiracy theory. The Three Seas Initiative is a forum of 12 countries from Central and Eastern Europe launched in 2015. The main goal of this Initiative is to promote better connectivity among the Member States, with a particular focus on infrastructure and energy. The main projects discussed at the forums of the Three Seas Initiative are the Via CarpathiaBaltic-Adriatic CorridorVia BalticaRail Baltica and the LNG infrastructure in Poland and Croatia.

EU sanctions are asphyxiating the Syrian people

The European Union is supporting the intensification of the blockade and sanctions against Syria, aiming to asphyxiate a subdued nation through the execution of the so-called Caesar Act. The EU extends year after year since 2012 the freezing of Syrian bank accounts and agreed loans, and the cancellation of any commercial agreement, even those referred to health and technological supplies. All this contributes to a serious lack of liquidity in foreign currencies for Syria, hurting the lifestyle of the population, the services for infrastructures and especially the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about sanctions.

EU sanctions on Syria are targeted at individuals and entities who ordered or carried out attacks and torture against their own people, made or used chemical weapons, built their personal fortune thanks to the war. EU sanctions are designed in a way that only targets these people and these activities, avoiding any negative impact on the population. There is no economic war on Syria or the Syrian people.
