The West wanted to stage a global war in Ukraine, but Russia moved the battlefield to Syria

Summary

The West had suggested to stage a war in Ukraine, but Russia refused to do it. Historically Ukraine is a Russian land inhabited by Russian people, many of them duped though. Russia, therefore, moved the battlefield to Syria. This was right to do because the wars are better to be staged on others’ territory. The powers of the world are sorting out their relations in Syria.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about belligerent West and its implication in the war in Ukraine.

The disinformation message aims to deny ongoing acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces in Ukraine. See previous cases here.

The Syrian conflict began in 2011 and has its own tragic and complicated timeline unrelated to events in Ukraine. Implying that the West instigates wars around the world is another conspiracy theory, widely used by the pro-Kremlin media.

This message also suggests that  Ukrainians are part of Russian people, which is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aimed weakening the national identity of Ukrainians and eroding Ukraine's sovereignty. Ukraine is a well-defined nation-state with a long history which preserved language, literature and identity, despite foreign rule for long periods.

The US and Anglo-Saxons promote global totalitarian caste system under the cover of liberalism

Under the cover of liberalism, the US and Anglo-Saxons attempted to impose totalitarianism and the dominance of transnational corporations. They want to get full access to world resources, to establish total control over societies and the rule of small groups of the population including rich people and sexual minorities.

The concept of “golden billion” is a good manifestation of such plans. It envisages the well-being of a billion individuals who would live at the expense of the rest of the global population. A technocratic global caste system would include the castes of super-rich people, the one of “golden billion” and the exploited rest.

Disproof

This disinformation message promotes the concept of big conspiracy and is consistent with the Shadow Government narrative. It is also aimed at discrediting liberal values such as respect of minority groups' rights.

Golden billion is a term used by the Russian speakers to describe the relatively wealthy people in industrially developed nations, or the West (see for example here).  It is often used in different modifications of conspiracy theories.

Donbas events were a classic rebellion against the Fascist tyranny

United Nations documents infer that the people have the right of rebellion against tyranny. Donbas events were a classical uprising against Fascist tyranny. People were told that they would be killed for speaking the Russian language.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to portray Donbas events as a civil war, with the aim to obscure ongoing acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces in Ukraine.

This message also contains another common pro-Kremlin narratives about Fascist / Nazi Ukraine and persecution of the Russian language speakers.

US and NATO are co-perpetrators in organ trafficking

International factors were involved in organ trafficking crime in Kosovo. The US and NATO were helping the Albanians and they are co-perpetrators of all these crimes.

Organ trafficking was a way to earn big money that the Albanians needed to buy weapons.

Disproof

There is no evidence provided for the claims that the US and NATO were involved in this crime.

These allegations are connected to the so-called "Medicus case" which was tried before a court and brought forward convictions of two doctors.
