Disinfo: The United States is occupying Europe

Summary

We, the Poles, should repeat to ourselves: the United States is an enemy of Poland. The United States is an enemy, an occupant of Europe. There is nothing personal here, no emotions. We should simply say: Yankee go home. Go back to your country and fix the problems you have. Leave the Poles and the rest of the world alone.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation message about the US presence in Europe.

Poland has a long history of successful political, economic, military and cultural relations with the United States – both of these countries perceive their relations as strategic.

USA wants to divide Russian society before the constitutional referendum

The USA wants to divide Russian society before the constitutional referendum.

A senior Russian security official pointed out that hostile Western actors would try to provoke “nationalist and separatist feelings” in the run-up to the national vote on the adoption of the new constitution on 1 July.

The West is taking steps to “increase the informational pressure” with the aim of undermining Russia’s “spiritual, cultural, historical and moral values”. In his opinion, these alleged psychological operations are trying to reduce “feelings of national identity” in order to “divide Russian society”.

The global deep state turned Eastern Europe in a territory of plunder and devastation

Western Europe fell to its knees before the murdered George Floyd, but it continues to exploit its slaves from Eastern Europe in a brutal way. The global capital, the deep state destroys everything in its path. It needs the territory inhabited by thoughtless creatures without history and remembrance, which will serve and become slaves. The global deep state has destroyed the countries of Eastern Europe, turning them in the territory destined for plunder and devastation.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

Deep state is a popular conspiracy theory, which promotes the narrative about a global elite secretly ruling the world. In most cases, the “deep state” is referred to as American elites, which promote aggressive wars and prevent US reconciliation with Russia. The idea of a "deep state" has always been very popular among conspiracy theorists. Its manifestations might be different, but generally, the concept conjures up the image of a small group of men, deciding the fate of the world behind the scenes.
