Disinfo: Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia to set up anti-Russian military alliance with US assistance

Summary

A military alliance between Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia may appear under the sponsorship of the United States. Europe knows it and does not want to lose influence in these countries in order to stay in the geopolitical game.

Disproof

This is a recurrent narrative by pro-Kremlin media about the West fuelling anti-Russian sentiments in former Soviet republics and attempting to set up military alliances there. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba did actually say in a talk-show in February 2021 that Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova were moving towards setting up a triple alliance in the Black Sea region. He said he had informed the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken about it. However, Kuleba did not say it would be a military alliance. But if the countries wanted to form such an alliance they would be in their full sovereign right to do so.

Both the European Union and the United States support Ukraine politically, respect its internationally recognised borders and follow a strict non-recognition policy. The US also provides Ukraine with military equipment. But there is no Western military presence in the war zone in eastern Ukraine. Nor does the West plan to set up military anti-Russian alliances in post-Soviet countries.

Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia are all members of the Eastern Partnership (EaP). It is a joint initiative involving the EU and six Eastern European partners: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The EaP is a strategic partnership based on common values and rules, mutual interests and commitments. It aims to strengthen and deepen the political and economic relations between the EU and the partner countries and supports sustainable reform processes there. However, this programme does not envisage any joint anti-Russian military action.

Read more similar cases targetting the EaP project and its members and claiming that it is a geopolitical trap meant to tear ex-Soviet countries away from Russia, that it was created as an anti-Russian initiative and an instrument of energy colonialism.

Disinfo: The Great Reset plan aims to establish total control over people’s minds

The Great Reset plan, devised by globalist élites, aims to use the Covid-19 pandemic as an excuse to establish total control over people’s minds by means of total surveillance, censorship and manipulation of social media, and the collection of data on everyone.

Disproof

Disinformation presented without supporting evidence. This article combines recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about secret global elites who rule the world with the new Great Reset conspiracy theory. It is also consistent with narratives about the Covid-19 pandemic that are often spread by pro-Kremlin outlets.

The Great Reset is an unfounded conspiracy theory claiming the existence of a plot to create a global totalitarian regime to completely control the world's population by exploiting Covid-19. It is completely unfounded.

Disinfo: Heads of the world’s corporations, globalist leaders, mobilised to defeat Trump, Putin, Xi Jinping, Erdogan, and Khamenei

The heads of the world's corporations – Big Tech, Big Data, Big Finance - and globalist leaders have mobilised to defeat the opponents of globalism - Trump, Putin, Xi Jinping, Erdogan, and the Ayatollah Khamenei - through the control of public consciousness on a global scale and through internet censorship. This effort began when the globalists strove to steal the 2020 US presidential elections by using new technologies, introducing internet censorship and manipulating vote by mail. Biden’s policy is to use demonisation, de-platforming and network ostracism against anyone, in the US and abroad, who do not hold globalist views.

Disproof

This article repeats a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global/secret elites who rule the world, and aim to exercise total control over people’s minds and beliefs, censoring and suppressing any view that dissents from liberal-globalist “single thought”. It also contains the frequent conspiracy narrative claiming that the West seeks to undermine political leaders and states ( such as Russia, China and Iran) that challenge globalist hegemony.

The article is also consistent with the pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign about the 2020 US presidential election that seeks to discredit US President Joe Biden and Western democracy.

Disinfo: The West supports the unofficial Russian opposition

The West gave widespread support to Russia's unofficial opposition and turned a blind eye to its domestic political problems. Unfortunately, many European Union countries do not seem to adhere to their principles under pressure from the United States.

Disproof

This claim includes two recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives.

First, the claim that the West is supporting what it describes as the "unofficial" Russian opposition is consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives that protests, disorders and civil uprisings are never manifestations of popular discontent but are directed and funded by Western intelligence services or other Western actors in order to destabilise targeted foreign states and bring about regime change.
