Disinfo: The West wants a Russian-Turkish war because of Syria

Summary

Of course, the West wants a Russian-Turkish massacre to happen. They would be satisfied with Putin’s failure in the negotiations. However, the inability to come to an agreement by both parties and the continuation of the war is the best way.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the Syrian war and accusing the West of Russophobia with no evidence provided.

The European Council noted the outcome of the Russia-Turkey meeting of 5 March in Moscow and called on all parties "to keep in place an immediate and sustainable ceasefire, to guarantee the protection of civilians on the ground and from the air and to facilitate the unhindered delivery of humanitarian assistance by the international community."

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared on 5 March that the US position is to back Russia and Turkey in the strategy that was confirmed in Sochi in 2018 and agree on a ceasefire in the region.

Turkey-Greece crisis has taken NATO to its limit

What if a NATO member attacks another member, as it is happening now with Turkey and Greece? In Greece, we are seeing NATO at the edge. Europe is completely dependent on the US.

Disproof

Despite increasing tensions at the Greek-Turkish border, the situation is far from taking NATO at the edge.

This is part of a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on NATO, portraying it as a useless, decadent and Russophobic organisation with no role in today’s world. You can see other examples in our database, such as NATO’s alleged obsolescence, cannibalistic character, fascistic tendencies and links to white supremacist ideology, its never-ending provocations, its attempts to block Moscow in its sphere of influence, the Alliance's permanent targeting of Russia and Belarus, its role as a US subjugation tool for other countries and its unreliability to defend its members or the claims that NATO is such a disaster that the US didn’t want its help after 9/11 and that it is spreading the coronavirus in the US.

Coronavirus is a US tool to disrupt Chinese production

Coronavirus, Uyghur, and Huawei are a triangle of tools for the United States that work in two directions: disrupting production at home, in China, and disrupting consumption at the other end (markets). Some people may think that the claim of coronavirus being a laboratory-produced virus is an exaggeration of a conspiracy theory, and we believed when we first watched old sci-fi films, including “Resident Evil”, that this cannot ever become a reality!

The crisis of the United States of America is not very different from the British crisis in the opium wars, but the tools of direct wars are no longer available today, and there is a need for much opium in the near future, starting from bacterial wars, and not ending with technological and media wars.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, as well as a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US using biological war to crush the Chinese economy.

There is no evidence that suggests that the coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is used as a weapon against other states. It comes from a family of viruses that include SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading with new cases being reported in the Asia-Pacific region as well as Europe, North America and the Middle East, causing almost 30,000 deaths as of 29 March 2020.

Ukraine violates human rights by not providing water to Crimea

Ukraine made supplying of water to Crimea the subject of political blackmail. These are issues of survival and human rights. This is a vile act.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine and Crimea.

The North Crimean Canal is the only structure through which the Crimea received water from the Dnipro River. After Russia’s illegal annexation of the peninsula, the Ukrainian leadership stated that the main condition for the renewal of the agreements on the water supply to the Crimea is re-institution of legitimate authorities on the peninsula, which after the annexation of the Crimea are absent.
