Disinfo: The US élite was behind the 9/11 attack and the assassination of John F. Kennedy

Summary

The US élite was behind the 9/11 attack and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. These are just some examples of a long series of secret conspiracies of the US élite.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative presented without evidence about global elites secretly ruling the world. The article’s claim is also consistent with the conspiracy about the so-called Deep State in the United States, which is allegedly a permanent, unelected shadow government responsible for numerous historical events, including the assassination of President John. F. Kennedy on 22 November 1963 and the 9/11 2001 terrorist attacks.

No serious evidence has come to light supporting the theory that President Kennedy was assassinated as a result of a US élite conspiracy, though conspiracy theories about the assassination are abound.

Despite years of debunking the 9/11 conspiracy theories, a recent article in The Wall Street Journal reports that:

“The 9/11 conspiracy movement has proven persistent and pervasive without support from mainstream news organizations or political leaders. That suggests something ominous about some of its successors, including the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory.”

Furthermore, there is no invisible “shadow government” in the US as claimed by these theories. An in-depth article published by Time explores the historical roots of conspiracy theories in America. Psychologists have highlighted that certain types of personalities are particularly susceptible to believing such theories.

Read similar cases claiming that the assassination of John F. Kennedy and 9/11 attacks were organised by Deep State, and that 9/11 was no terrorist attack, the US government is behind this tragedy

Disinfo: People of the Baltic states will become foot soldiers and cannon fodder of NATO

The non-motivated military activities of NATO near the border of Russia in the Baltic sea are showing the destructive role of the alliance in East European countries.

Growing military activities in the “Eastern flank” or “Eastern front” are provoking Russia’s response.

The main problems of Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn today (and in the future) are the aggressive agenda of NATO and the perspective of becoming cannon fodder. West is using controlled territories of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia as a bridgehead for aggression (against Russia).

The independent military and political role of the Baltic state is not visible. The fate of authorities and people of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia is to become foot soldiers in the game of elder NATO’s partners.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, portraying NATO as an aggressor and presenting Baltic states as the puppets of an alliance.

NATO suspended practical cooperation with Russia in 2014, because of Russia's actions against Ukraine, including the illegal and illegitimate annexation of Crimea. NATO has a dual-track approach to Russia: strong deterrence and defence, including through the Enhanced Forward Presence in Poland and the Baltic States, and meaningful dialogue.

Disinfo: The West tries to complicate the process of the Russian vaccine entering the international market

While mass vaccination is underway in Russia, the West is still trying to find a way to complicate the process of the Russian vaccine entering the international market. The very fact of the distribution of Sputnik V and our other vaccines means an increase in the credibility and reputation of Russia in the international arena, they do not want this. Europe is facing a large vaccine shortage, and in this situation, Sputnik V could help defeat the pandemic in Europe.

Disproof

This is a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that exploits the coronavirus pandemic claiming that there is a Russophobic campaign against Sputnik V.

Contrary to the claim, previous criticism and mistrust of the Sputnik V vaccine were not due to any alleged Russophobia but to the publication of incomplete or questionable data about it, surrounded by a disinformation campaign about this and other vaccines.

Disinfo: ECHR demand that Russia release Navalny is politically motivated

The European judiciary continues to dirty itself with politically motivated rulings.

The European Court of Human Rights has demanded that Russia release activist Alexei Navalny, who is due to serve a prison term for embezzlement, without reference to either European or Russian legislation.

This constitutes blatant interference in Russia’s judicial system. Navalny was sentenced by a Russian court, under Russian laws. The European Court has no right to overrule this judgment, nor has it the power to issue a decision on the merits in Navalny’s case. This sort of meddling only serves to confirm that the EU is sticking up for its agent, and is prepared to do so without citing a single legal argument.

Disproof

The story is part of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign targeting Russian activistAlexei Navalny.

The news segment distorts the content and meaning of the ECHR's appeal in several key ways.
