Disinfo: The Union State of Belarus and Russia saves post-Soviet countries from pro-fascist West

Summary

Following the USSR’s break-up, the West created various funds and organisations in the post-Soviet countries and began meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign countries. The 2004 presidential elections and 2014 Euromaidan in Ukraine were examples of US’ rulings on who should have power in Ukraine. Gradually, post-Soviet countries began turning into colonies of the US with various conflicts and degradation stemming from this fact. When it comes to eastern policy, old and new EU and NATO countries have clear roles: Western European countries play masters of democracy, human rights, and European values, whereas Eastern European counties (Poland, Czechia, Romania, and the Baltic states) do dirty work by promoting disintegration, bringing tensions and confrontation along the whole perimeter of all-Russian civilisation. In fact, the real policies of the EU and US do not have anything to do with democracy and human rights. They support neo-fascists in the Baltic countries, fascists in Ukraine, followers of Ion Antonescu in Moldova, the anti-Russian regime in Georgia, so-called human rights defenders in Russia and so-called promoters of Belarusian culture in Belarus. Integration between Belarus and Russia reproduces the USSR to some extent and counteracts the geopolitical dictate of the US. This is the reason behind the information war waged by Western media and their clients in post-Soviet countries against the Union State between Belarus and Russia. There is no alternative to integration between Belarus and Russia. Without unification, the two countries and other post-Soviet republics will not have futures.

Disproof

This article is a mix of conspiracies consistent with a number of recurring pro-Kremlin propagandistic narratives about US-staged Ukrainian events, Western colonial policies in post-Soviet space and elsewhere, pro-fascist West, Baltic states and Ukraine, Western aggressiveness towards Belarus and Russia, and the West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations. It also puts forward a false dilemma about the direction of Belarus's and other post-Soviet countries' political development (union with Russia vs. no future) and promotes the concept of all-Russian civilisation, an imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology that is a favoured pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at weakening the national identity of Belarusians and Ukrainians, as well as their sovereignty. The accusation of Nazism/fascism in relation to Ukraine, the Baltic states, and the West is one of the favourite techniques of pro-Kremlin outlets, read our past analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest. The US did not stage the Ukrainian events in 2004 or 2014. When it comes to Euromaidan, the spontaneous onset of protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s violent dispersal of peaceful student protests against Yanukovych's sudden decision to withdraw from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. See the full debunk here. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that by staging Euromaidan, the West meant Ukraine to die, that the West is targeting the Union State between Belarus and Russia and wages large-scale information campaign against it, that the West favours and supports Ukrainian fascists and Islamic terrorists, and that Belarus faces either normal development under Russia or a forced Polonization and economic devastation.

Greta Thunberg declared war against white men

The “green madness” spanning the western world is already leading to serious economic repercussions. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg are against the so-called “patriarchal system of oppression” and urge to refrain from having children. They also declare that it is the locals’ racism that makes migrants to commit crimes. If Ocasio-Cortez and Thunberg succeed in their environmental plans, the world will never be the same, and Russia and China are likely to remain the last islands of common sense. The flow of tourists from the European Union will go to Russia, because only in Russia (and in China, but we are closer) you can safely eat natural (rather than soy) meat and ride a gasoline car without being tormented by the conscience and the “ecological moral police” – the social network activists.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a conspiracy about the West allegedly exploiting the environmental agenda and climate change topic. See earlier disinformation cases claiming that Greta Thunberg is a political tool, key targets for “green blows” will be Russia and China, that the climate mafia is exploiting Greta Thunberg to lower living standards, and that Greta Thunberg is a prophet of a new totalitarian wave equalling to radical Islam.

Netherlands MH17 hysteria demonstrates Dutch government complicity in the tragedy

The Dutch government, as a agent of the Euro-Atlantic establishment, has lost all links to the reality and is not even pretending that it cares about the human rights and the objective investigation; Representatives of the European elite involved in covering up the truth behind the MH17 crash are panicking because the mainstream ‘Russia is guilty’ narrative has collapsed. Dutch government tried to pay a bribe to Tsemakh for his loyality and participation in the MH17 farce by proposing him to move to the Netherlands. Under international law (as well as laws of a majority of the states), the concealment of facts related to the crime is a signal of complicity in the crime. The Dutch government, which is allegedly a neutral side in the MH17 case, is de-facto impeding the objective investigation of the tragedy.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Joint International Investigation and the downing of the flight MH17. The disinformation message appeared after the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service claimed that Russia willingly allowed Mr Tsemakh, a suspect in the MH17 case, to leave the Russian Federation and refused to execute the Dutch request for extradition. Read more here. Ukraine has also issued the warrant for Volodymyr Tsemakh. A special team, known as the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), was established to conduct the criminal investigation of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The JIT comprises officials from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch police, along with police and criminal justice authorities from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine. On the basis of the investigation conducted by the JIT the Dutch Public Persecution service will persecute 4 individuals for causing the crash of the MH17 and murdering of 289 persons on board. The JIT has launched an appeal for witnesses who might have more information about the persons involved in the downing of the MH17. Every witness who comes forward maybe offered a witness safety and protection program. If necessary the program can protect witness identities and may include the use of assumed identities and may include re-location and in some cases permanent re-settling in another country. Read more here. See previous disinformation cases: JIT investigators tried to bribe Volodymyr Tsemakh; The JIT investigation is not interested in truth; The Netherlands has not taken into account the evidence confirming Russia's innocence in the downing of the MH17, and others.

Members of the White Helmets were also members of terrorist groups

The White Helmets; founded and trained by James le Mesurier, a British secret agent and mercenary, who was killed in Turkey, most likely because his services were no longer needed. Their Head Office in the Netherlands is sponsored by the EU and US. Hollywood made an “awesome” documentary about these terrorists to brainwash Western media. Actually the members of the White Helmets all supported Al-Queda and Al-Nusra and were all members of these terrorists groups, still the West calls them “relief workers”.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the White Helmets. No evidence is given to substantiate the claim that they have connections to Al Qaeda and/ or other terrorist groups. The claim that the White Helmets are the creation of“Western intelligence” is unsubstantiated and constitutes a groundless conspiracy theory.
