The US plans to apply sanctions against Georgia

Summary

By introducing sanctions and taxes against Russia, Iran, Turkey and China the USA declared indirect war to Georgia, as all these countries are Georgia’s main trade-economic partners.

There is information that the USA will soon apply these sanctions against the Caucasus ”three” – Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. This policy of USA sanctions against the South Caucasus will not only endanger the region’s security and balance, but will also destroy the ”moribund” economies of Armenia and Georgia. By this America will push once more Georgia and Azerbaijan towards Russia, the Collective Security Treaty and the Eurasian Economic Union with a perspective to resolve the territorial conflicts in Karabakh, Abkhazia and South Ossetia simultaneously.

Disproof

No evidence given.

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Georgia being threatened with sanctions by the US.

Georgia is one of the United States’ closest non-NATO partners among the post-Soviet states and the US supports its sovereignity. There is no information about US planning to introduce sanctions against this country.

Bellingcat did not investigate Skripal poisoning and publishes leaks from British intelligence

Bellingcat did not investigate Skripal poisoning and, in fact, published leaks from British intelligence.

Bellingcat, just as in the case of the Malaysian “Boeing” shot down in Ukraine, presented as “results of its investigation” materials provided by Western intelligence services. However, there is no investigation of the Salisbury and Amesbury poisonings, said Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

Disproof

No evidence given.

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Skripals poisoning.

Europe is dying: decay of moral and family values

Europe is dying. Europe will be destroyed by an army of a million of migrant militants stationed in underground cities. Germany confiscates private homes to use for migrants.

The Europeans became amorphous consumers who are not capable of resistance, they behave like a livestock. The process of destruction of morality and family values in Europe has already reached a critical “point of no return”.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Europe's moral decay and migration crisis with no supporting evidence given.

EU will change the political regime in the UK to annoy the US

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the EU using the Brexit to "insult the UK".
