Trident Juncture: Norway’s obedience puts an end to country’s existence

Summary

[Context: NATO military exercise Trident Juncture 2018]

Norway’s obedience [to the US] puts an end to country’s existence.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the European countries controlled by the US. Norway is an independent, sovereign country.

Trident Juncture 2018 was a large NATO exercise held in Norway with around 50,000 participants from 30 NATO and partner countries. Norway offered to host Trident Juncture 18, and NATO accepted the offer more than four years ago. forsvaret.no/en/exercise-and-operations/exercises/nato-exercise-2018,

Trident Juncture comparable to fascist Germany’s invasion of Norway in April 1940

Trident Juncture comparable to fascist Germany’s invasion of Norway in April 1940. The Western allies again “protect” Norway.

Disproof

Russia’s humanitarian convoys to Donbas are inspected by customs

Russia’s 82nd humanitarian convoy delivers 700+ tonnes of supplies to the people of Donetsk and Luhansk, including food packages for children, medical equipment and first aid kits. All cargo underwent thorough customs inspection.

Disproof

These convoys cross from Russian territory into Ukrainian territory controlled by Russia. They may be inspected by the Russian Customs Service or Russia-backed separatists, but they are not inspected by the Customs Service of Ukraine, the country they are actually crossing into. The convoys go to the same forces Russia is supporting militarily and logistically. Further debunking by Polygraph.

White Helmets have started filming their ‘CW usage evidence”, support the terrorists

White Helmets have started filming their ‘CW usage evidence’, this time in Aleppo province. Containers with poison gas, most likely chlorine, delivered to the area by terrorist groups they support.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on the White Helmets to distract the audience from Syrian government's use of chemical weapons. Another round of disinformation about the White Helmets preparing a staged chemical attack in Syria started spreading on August 25 by the Russian Ministry of Defence; see latest cases on White Helmets: https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=white+helmets&disinfo_issue=&date=

The photo comes from a video of White Helmet volunteers who were participating in the “Mannequin Challenge,” a viral internet video trend from 2016, in an attempt call attention to the situation in Syria. The organization later apologized for participating in the trend.
