Disinfo: The US democratic party is organizing a civil war

Summary

It can be said that the White Civil War, which was organised by the Democratic Party on the eve of the US presidential elections, is subject to strict control, and the participation of the children of the wealthy only confirms this. However, in a country of forty million unemployed and half a billion firearms at hand, the manageable chaos could lead to a massive disaster at the national level.

Disproof

This a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the racial justice protests in the US being orchestrated and strictly managed. It is a conspiracy theory to claim that the protests are "directed" by the US Democratic Party.

The widespread protests against racial injustice and police brutality broke out in the US after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis on the 25th of May, 2020. The protests followed several high-profile incidents involving African Americans and the police, invoking debates about racism in the 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. Though the situation was very tense for some days and protests spread to all 50 states of the country, military top officials and police officers worked effectively to de-escalate the situation, and demonstrations became largely peaceful after the first days.

See a similar cases that riots in the US take place according to the colour revolution manuals of US democrats and Obama, that US democrats organized riots in different cities based on the Ukrainian sceanrio and that protests in the US are organized by the democratic party ahead of US elections.

Disinfo: The US is suffering from a colour revolution similar to those it used to support

We see how the wave of “colour revolutions” that erupted in many regions around the world hit the United States which once supported and helped launch them, so will Washington drink from the same glass that it forced the world to drink from?

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the United States supports the so-called "colour revolutions" around the world. This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, especially the former Soviet republics, as Western-funded "colour revolutions".

According to this narrative, which has been recently applied also to explain protests in Venezuela, and in Bolivia any civil uprising is not spontaneous, but is supported, if not outright organised by the West, which is portrayed as an aggressive actor constantly preparing new coups.

Disinfo: Spain recognises Crimea as Russian

Spain recognised that Crimea was Russian after an infographist coloured the peninsula in red like a zone with high coronavirus prevalence like Russia and not a zone with a medium prevalence like Ukraine. Ukraine did not yet react hysterically to this news but it will surely.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation message on the status of illegally annexed Crimea. Spain condemns the illegal annexation of Crimea without ambiguity. This year the country reaffirmed its commitment to UN resolution 68/262. Read similar cases claiming that historical Crimean Russian land returned, over 95% of Crimea voted to be part of Russia, Crimea always was Russian, Crimean people have expressed their desire to rejoin Russia in a democratic process and that Crimea never belonged to Ukraine.
