Disinfo: The US protests are orchestrated by the deep state since they cannot organize color revolutions in other countries

Summary

The American “deep state”, which Trump often talks about, is the world of American intelligence services and law enforcement agencies, and largely works against Trump.

They know how to arrange such protests, especially since they are now almost unemployed due to the epidemic, and they cannot move around the world and organise colour revolutions in other countries.

Yet they are able to do so, to a large extent, in their country. On the other hand, the security services themselves can control this process and its scope, and of course, crush it.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about how US protests are orchestrated like the colour revolutions.

The ongoing civil unrest across the United States erupted after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer in Minneapolis. The responsible police officer has been charged with third-degree murder, and he and three other attending officers have been fired.

It is a conspiracy theory to claim that the protests are "directed" by the so-called deep state, while implying that the recent protests in the US are orchestrated in the same way as 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"

British secret services recruited Syrian terrorists, former ISIS member confesses

British secret services forced Syrian extremists to work for them, and ordered them to compile information on the Russian facilities in the Arab country, former Islamic State member Mohammed Hussein Saud told Russian journalists. The former extremist admitted that he met with British intelligence officials in the Al Tanf area, on the border with Jordan, where the US military base is located. Saud said that the UK experts needed information on “important sites in Russia and Syria”, namely security sites, to be able to launch a terrorist attack.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about alleged Western support to the Islamic State and other terrorist organisations in the Middle East. The mention of a US base in the Al Tanf region in southern Syria seems an attempt to suggest some US involvement in these alleged terrorist plots against Russian forces.

The UK and the US are part of the global coalition to defeat the Islamic State, and both countries are part of the Operation Inherent Resolve that has been ongoing to attack and degrade the capabilities of the group since 2014.

The launch of the Crew Dragon is much more expensive than the Russian Soyuz

Crew Dragon manned spacecraft launches are very expensive and cost much more than launches on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft. The old Soyuz will cost less to the consumer than the new reusable Crew Dragon.

Disproof

Between 2006 and 2020, NASA spent about $ 3.9 billion to buy 70 seats for its astronauts from Roskosmos. Moreover, Russia, after completing the American Shuttle missions in 2011, sharply increased the cost of one seat for the United States from $21 million to $60m.

Now one seat on the Soyuz costs NASA $86 million, and the cost of one spacecraft ship from SpaceX will cost $55 million.

COVID-19 pandemic between bioterrorism and crimes against humanity

The new type of coronavirus, Sars-Cov-2, was manufactured in the Wuhan laboratory. Covid-19 has no natural origin and is made by professionals.

Disproof

 This a conspiracy theory about the emergence of coronavirus in the world.

Currently, scientists have not discovered the origin of this virus. The source of the new strain of coronavirus is still unknown, however, all available evidence suggests that this type of virus has a natural animal origin and is not a constructed virus. It has not been developed in any of the world's laboratories.
