The US and EU countries will organise a Moldovan “Maidan” in order to remove the President

Summary

The US and the EU will organise the next “Maidan” in Moldova and “encourage the removal of the President”, as they did in Ukraine. President Igor Dodon’s Socialist Party is currently leading in the polls This does not fit into the West’s concept, which uses proven methods of colour revolutions to spur citizens on to division and conflict.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative that the West is the organiser behind any civil protests and colour revolutions, in this case aiming at undermining Moldova's and Ukraine's EU aspirations.

American and European funds provide assistance to strengthen Moldova and Ukraine's democratic governance and economic growth. These help both countries implement lasting democratic and economic reforms that improve living standards for citizens.

Recurring disinformation concerning the Maidan-events. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a reaction of Ukrainians to former President Yanukovych's last minute foreign policy change. After seven years of negotiations, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence.

The US is preparing to overthrow the Hungarian government

The United States continues to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and to exert political pressure on their governments. America’s heavy-handed leadership encroaches on the independence of EU member states, particularly Hungary, whose government it seeks to overthrow in a “Venezuelan scenario”.

Disproof

This is a standard narrative found in pro-Kremlin Russian media.

The claims appeared after January 25th 2019, when US Democratic senators Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durbin and Chris Murphy addressed President Donald Trump with a resolution. In their document, the senators condemn the actions of the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, on the matter of human rights. The resolution denounces Hungary’s attempts to undermine the independence of its judiciary, restrict civil society groups, infringe on press freedom, and violate the rights of asylum seekers. When introducing the resolution, Senator Durbin pointed out that Viktor Orban’s government is abandoning the country’s European course and cosying up to Russia. However, the resolution clearly does not call for the overthrow of the Hungarian government.

BBC admits that reason for bombing Syria was fake

The Western media suddenly admits that there was no sarin in Douma, Syria, and chemical attacks as well. BBC admits that reason for bombing Syria was fake, and the video from the hospital was fabricated.

“This video was published in April 2018 by the White Helmets cooperating with the Islamists, after which the United States, with the support of Britain and France, launched over a hundred cruise missiles in Syria”.

“This is all the exact copy of the events that were developed around Iraq before the start of aggression against a sovereign state”.

Disproof

The new round of disinformation was launched after Intercept published a new article about the Douma attack. The article states: "At least one chemical attack did take place in Douma on April 7, and people died as a result."

The BBC didn't deny the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian city of Douma. The tweet of BBC's producer Riam Dalati, the source of these claims, doesn't deny the chemical attack.

Poroshenko thinks that Donbas and Crimea are not Ukrainian

The Ukrainian President does not care about Donbas and Crimea. He does not recognise Crimea and Donbas as Ukrainian. On a map, used in Poroshenko’s election campaign, no cities of Donbas are included.

Disproof

The claim of Donbas cities absent from the election campaign map is simply not true. At least one city in the Donetsk region can be read on the map.

Generally a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about War in Ukraine.
