Ukrainian politicians still do not want to admit that the unconstitutional seizure of power in Kyiv was the root cause of the upheavals in the country. Instead, the so-called “Maidan victors” decided to use force to suppress the dissenters in various regions of Ukraine. They imposed an almost complete ban on the Russian language, initiated lustration, the liquidation of parties and NGOs, the closure of oppositional media, and the lifting of restrictions on the propaganda of neo-Nazi ideology. And the Western mediators – France, Germany, and Poland, who acted as guarantors of the agreement of February 21, 2014 – in fact, withdrew from fulfilling the promises. Almost seven years later, Kyiv is still afraid to face the truth and admit guilt for the tragic consequences of the bloody coup. They prefer to hide their fear behind anti-Russian and Russophobic rhetoric.
Some of the extremist Islamic organisations are employing their favourite and recurring narrative on calling for jihad to support Islam in Karabakh, with the same mechanism of “jihad against atheism” that was used in the 1980s, then the support of Muslims in Yugoslavia in the 1990s, then the Muslims of Chechnya in the late 1990s and the beginning of the millennium, all through to the support of “Islam” during the “Arab Spring” revolutions, and then the establishment of the “Islamic Caliphate” in the Levant.
The same organisations, institutions and charities, and indeed the same faces and the same Western apparatus behind them, are using the same mechanism of providing generous and malicious funds this time to destabilise Russia’s weak spots, namely the Caucasus by transporting a few hundred terrorists to Azerbaijan to create tension in Russian-Azerbaijani and Russian-Turkish relations, in preparation for the introduction of these people into Russian lands through the 330 km-long border between Azerbaijan and Russia.
A conspiracy theory supported by no evidence and a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative suggesting that the US and the West more broadly sponsor terrorism.
Ever since the September 11 terrorist attacks, the US and and Europe have been engaged in an enormous military and intelligence effort to counter Al Qaeda, ISIS and other radical Islamist terrorist groups around the world.
Similar cases include that ISIS has been supported by US, British, French and Israeli intelligence services in order to demolish Syria, that the US and Europe support Jihadist forces in Syria, and that Al Baghdadi was an American product.
