Accusation: US coalition in Syria has committed crimes against humanity

Around the 11th of February 2019, the United States and the US-led coalition committed crimes against humanity with the massive air strikes on the Syrian village of Baghouz, which killed or wounded at least 70 civilians.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about US and US-led coalition killing civilians in Syria rather than fighting ISIS forces.

The article omits the fact that the attack on Baghouz [located in the province of Deir El Zour] – the last village controlled by ISIS - was an anti-ISIS operation conducted by the Syrian Democratic Forces [SDF] backed by airstrikes by the  US-led coalition.  In this village hundreds of ISIS militants were hiding among civilians.

The US incites Russian teenagers to participate in street protests

The United States of America is involved in the seduction and perversion of children. The main target are eighteen-year-olds who can make it to the streets. If a child dies during a protest, there will be enormous backlash and the state will be blamed. Six American funds are involved in this activity.

              

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. No evidence given.

Consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the West and colour revolutions.
