Disinfo: Moldova faces territorial division and abolition of statehood facilitated by the West

Summary

The Republic of Moldova is already facing a threat of territorial division and subsequent abolition of statehood. This process is not violently planned, it will be beautifully wrapped and officially registered, the Moldovan people will be bitterly deceived. All this is facilitated by the West – through local politicians.

The West has done its best for the last four years and invested a lot of money to strengthen Maia Sandu, a Soros woman, and the pro-Western political spectrum as a whole in order to upset the balance between pro-Western and non-pro-Western forces in Moldova and plunge the republic into anti-Russian adventures.

The main goal of the West is to escalate the situation in Moldova and, in case of unrest, blame everything on Russia.

Russia is actually striving to maintain Moldova’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative against Maia Sandu and the elections in Moldova suggesting that pro-Western political parties are led by George Soros in the shadow. No evidence is given to support the allegations.

This is a resumption of the narratives used against a pro-European politician Maia Sandu, who recently won in the Moldovan presidential elections. The pro-Kremlin media often presents Maia Sandu as a Soros woman because some members of her team and some of her supporters worked or studied in projects funded by the Soros Foundation Moldova.

There is also no evidence of US and EU interference in the elections in Moldova. The US and EU countries support a free and fair electoral process in Moldova.

A statement published by the EU on 02 November 2020, before the run-off vote, underlines that "The European Union fully supports the strengthening of democratic institutions in the Republic of Moldova and highlights that respecting the right of all voters to express their will in credible, inclusive and transparent elections is a fundamental democratic principle which is also at the heart of the EU-Republic of Moldova Association Agreement."

The US Ambassador to Moldova Derek Hogan stated that Regardless of what choice the Moldovan people make "the United States will remain a faithful partner to the Moldovan people and this country’s sovereign right to choose its own path."

Read a similar case claiming that results of the first round of Moldovan presidential elections were falsified with Western help.

Donald Trump is the spokesman of a group of American patriots who were horrified by the 9/11 inside job

Donald Trump is the spokesman of a group of American patriots who were horrified by the 9/11 inside job and who have always opposed the messianic-globalist project of the neocons and their allies.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative suggesting the US government's involvement in the 9/11 attacks. The article adds a new twist to the narrative by suggesting that Donald Trump represents US patriots who were horrified by the alleged 9/11 “inside job” and that fought an alleged “neocon messianic-globalist project” (which the article hints is behind the 9/11 attacks) .

9/11 conspiracy theories have been refuted several times including by the “9-11 Commission" created by US legislators.

Political conspiracy of important sectors of US power élite has rigged the US elections

A political conspiracy of important sectors of the US power élite has rigged the US elections against President Trump. It is obvious that tens of thousands of Trump votes have been deliberately “forgotten” or cancelled, tens of thousands of mailed-in ballots have been destroyed while hundreds of thousands have been faked in favour of Joe Biden.

Disproof

The story is part of an emerging pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative seeking to delegitimise the conduct and results of the 2020 US presidential election.

The article provides no evidence of the alleged conspiracy of “important sectors of the US power élite” to rig the 2020 presidential elections. Furthermore, there is no evidence to support the article’s claim that massive fraud was committed during the elections. Several reliable sources debunked the massive fraud claims: the BBC, The Guardian, the New York Times, Forbes, Le Monde.

After Euromaidan Ukraine lost its sovereignty and is falling apart

Euromaidan that started on 21 November 2013, radically changed the lives of almost every Ukrainian. In the overwhelming majority of cases, these changes were for the worse, such as a civil war that soon began in Eastern Ukraine. Not a single Maidan slogan has been implemented. None of the leaders of the Maidan has kept any of their promises. Ukraine has lost the remnants of the signs of a sovereign state and is on the verge of complete collapse.

A coup d’état took place, and Western puppets came to power. Seven years have passed since the beginning of the Maidan and Ukraine has changed beyond recognition: no sovereignty remained.

Disproof

This is an example of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the 2013-2014 Maidan protests, the war in Ukraine, and Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a sovereign country. It is not falling apart. It has a functioning government, embassies in other countries, judicial, law enforcement, and other authorities. It is a democratic country where people can choose the president, the parliament, and local administration. For instance, in 2019, it held presidential and parliamentary elections, and in 2020 - local elections.
