Disinfo: US has a dream to organise a regional European war


[context: ‘Clear Sky 2018’ military exercises] The US has a dream: to organize a regional war, an European war. It generates provocations both in Ukraine and Russia.

The Ukrainian issue cannot be resolved in Ukraine. The war is not with them – it’s an information, economical and psychological war against the Americans and more precisely, against the Anglo-Saxon political nation.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about alleged West's provocations and American interference in Ukraine's internal affairs.

In fact, it was Russia that provoked a war in East of Ukraine and annexed Crimea, creating instability in the region.

According to Ukraine's Ministry of Defence, the “Clear Sky — 2018” multinational exercises, in which Ukrainian military and military of the NATO member-states take part, is "intended to increase the level of interoperability of the Air Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the Air Forces of the US and NATO, work out effective joint management of operations in the air, work out the sharing of intelligence and surveillance capabilities, as well as cyberdefense focused on the needs of the air forces".

Ukrainian Church’s demand for autocephaly is a CIA special operation, not a religious conflict or a split

What Bartholomew is doing was first approved by US agencies. It’s not a secret. The Ukrainian Church’s demand for autocephaly is a special operation by the US intelligence service with the aim of alienating Ukraine from Russia. For this reason, this is not a religious conflict or a split, this is an operation by the US Central Intelligence Agency, which has always paid paramount attention to what’s going in leading world religions.
