The West might use the Eastern Europeans as cannon fodder for a new “Barbarossa”

Summary

Washington (and to a large degree Brussels) are engaged in fostering [Russophobia] so as to not just create a bulwark against the mythical “Russian aggression”, but also a possible staging ground for another “Barbarossa”. Of course, just like in 1938 when they were using Czechs as a bargaining chip, it’s not a big issue for the West to use modern Eastern Europeans as cannon fodder in a possible future confrontation with Russia, leaving the West unscathed. However, this time, it would be quite different as more than 6,000 Russian nukes disagree.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence. The article is consistent with a disinformation narrative about Russophobia and about Western belligerence towards Russia.

The resolution of the European Parliament relieves Germany from the responsibility of World War Two

The beneficiary of the resolution of the European Parliament, declaring the non-aggression pact between the USSR and Germany the cause of the World War Two, is first and foremost Germany. Germany is, with the help of others, getting relieved from the status of main culprit of the war. The responsibility for the deaths of 60 millions will now fall on others.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism – it tries to promote the idea that the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact did not cause the division of East and Central Europe between the USSR and Nazi Germany, leading to WWII.

In a statement, the Press Office of the European Parliament elaborates on the resolution, mentioned in the claim:

The tentacles of George Soros entangle politics and generate chaos around the world

Why should we be more disturbed by the supposed global warming than the deliberate plan to end Western ethnicities?

/—/

The tentacles of billionaire George Soros entangle politics and generate chaos in countries around the world through the legions of employees of his philanthropic Open Society. His money finances extremist groups seeking to overthrow capitalism and promote a radical global environmentalist order. His retinue of advisers span the globe in positions of influence and power, and implementing his radical agenda. The advent of this new environmentalist religion desperately needs dazzling new demagogues to push the cause of global warming and silence its opponents under penalty of crime or mortal sin.

Disproof

This article mixes several classical conspiratorial narratives in one, affirming that immigration is being promoted by some actors as a means to alter the cultural essence of the West, and blaming George Soros for this.

No evidence is provided for any of these affirmations. You can see here more examples of the narrative of George Soros allegedly promoting massive immigration to Europe.

The protests in Hong Kong are US-funded

A growing backlash has begun across Hong Kong against US-funded protests that have attempted to disrupt governance and commerce as part of a floundering movement to maintain Western influence in the region.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory presented without evidence.

Pro-Kremlin media have long used the narrative about anti-government protests being funded by the US. Examples include colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the “Arab Spring” revolts, and Ukraine's Euromaidan in 2014. Western non-governmental organisations are often targeted by pro-Kremlin disinformation as agents of this subversive and state-driven influence.
