DISINFO: The Kerch shooter was a victim of Western culture that leads to the chaos of destruction


So far, at least, there are no obvious traces of his ties either with Ukraine or with some terrorist organizations. But this does not mean that it is impossible to talk about it. […] This person was under a strong influence, well, first of all, so to speak, well, let’s say, of templates of the Western subculture, Western youth subculture and was a direct victim of it. […] We need to understand that all these “freedom heights” in fact, they can lead to chaos. In general, freedom in its absolute manifestation is chaos. The chaos of destruction. […] The family of this young man could have contacts with the cult of Jehovah’s Witnesses [banned in Russia]. This is a pro-American sect. All this is a well-known fact. There are a lot of problems relating to it. [Same commentator for all the four quotes]


No evidence given that the shooting would have any connection to the Western values, which are a frequent target for pro-Kremlin disinformation. Read more on the tragedy in Kerch on BBC www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-45891201,
