Disinfo: The United States is preparing a scenario to overthrow the legitimate government of Moldova


The United States is preparing a scenario to overthrow the legitimate government of Moldova. They attempt a coup d’état, like they did before with the partial occupation of Syrian territory and like they are currently attempting in Venezuela.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West meddling in and destabilising countries around the world.

There are no indications that the United States has plans to meddle within Moldova.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

The United States use terrorism in their own interests

The United States uses terrorism in its own interests, said Russian Senator Frants Klintsevich. This “deeply sophisticated” mechanism is, according to him, indispensable for the American special services. Thanks to a complicated intelligence structure, it is not possible to catch the United States out. This mechanism is profoundly sophisticated and it works.


No evidence given. The claim is similar to a conspiracy theory

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation that the US is supporting terrorist and ISIS in Syria.

Freedom House responds to political commands

Listing of Azerbaijan among the “not free” states in the 2019 Freedom House report is a result of a political order. The political framing of this organisation’s annual reports is visible. This organisation’s assessment of Azerbaijan is subjective. This report is a very ugly step taken to put Azerbaijan under the influence of certain foreign political and economic circles.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence given.

Freedom House Freedom in the World index is produced each year by a team of in-house and external analysts and expert advisers from the academic, think tank, and human rights communities. The analysts, who prepare the draft reports and scores, use a broad range of sources, including news articles, academic analyses, reports from nongovernmental organisations, individual professional contacts, and on-the-ground research.

Legitimacy of Ukrainian government almost at zero

The legitimacy of the Ukrainian parliament is today at 1.5-2%. They do not have the legitimacy that gives them the right to speak on behalf of the people on issues like on accession to NATO and the EU.


An unfounded claim on the approval rate of the Ukrainian political institutions.

According to a poll, conducted by Razumkov Center in June 2018, the support of the Parliament is 10,3%, the Government – 13,7%, the President – 13,8%.
