Disinfo: US assassinated Iranian General Soleimani to plunge the Middle East into chaos

Summary

US assassinated Iranian General Soleimani in order to plunge the Middle East into a state of chaos from which only the US and its allies, especially Israel, will emerge as victorious. The USA’s efforts to reshape the Middle East aim to implement Brzezinski’s doctrine for the partition of Russia and to preventively contain China.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and  Western foreign policies allegedly promoting chaos around the world and pursuing a belligerent and hostile agenda against Russia and China.

The US strike that killed General Soleimani is the latest in a series of escalations between Iran and the United States in the region and, most recently, in Iraq.

Read here a similar case claiming that the West’s geopolitical goal is to destroy the alternative poles of power – Russia and China – because they challenge the unipolar liberal world order.

Poland planned to take part in the partition of the USSR together with Nazi Germany

The Poles are trying to hide the fact that in many aspects, Warsaw was responsible for the increased appetites of Hitler towards the occupation of new territories. The Polish authorities repeatedly met with Hitler, Goering and Ribbentrop, carrying out negotiations regarding the conquest of the “living space” in the East. The Polish political elite planned to take part in the partition of the USSR with Nazi Germany. Poland wanted to occupy Soviet Ukraine.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact by stating that Poland was a Nazi ally, so it should blame itself.

Claims are not confirmed by any available historical documents. Before WWII, Poland had tense political relations with Nazi Germany, which expressed open territorial claims to Poland (revision of the status of the Free City of Danzig and control over the “Polish Corridor”). Despite intense political pressure from Hitler, Poland consistently refused to become a part of the Nazi block.

Poland wages an information war against Russia

The shameful and Russophobic resolution of Polish politicians on the equal responsibility of the USSR and Nazi Germany over the outbreak of WWII once again confirms the fact that the current Polish authorities openingly falsify and revise the history of WWII, they are waging the information war against Russia.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism. It accuses Poland of “the falsification and re-writing” of its history. According to this policy, the official Russian historiography is the only “true” way of interpreting the historical events of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe. On January 9th, the Polish Parliament adopted a resolution “condemning the provocative and untrue statements by representatives of the highest authorities of the Russian Federation attempting to hold Poland liable for the Second World War”.

ISIS was created and defended by the US

ISIS was created and defended by the US.

Disproof

No evidence is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the US and other Western states are supporting or working together with ISIS in the Middle East. This message is part of a broader conspiracy theory alleging that the United States and its NATO partners have created and supported many jihadi terrorist organisations and control global terrorism. In reality, the US is committed to fighting terrorist organisations, such as Daesh and Al-Qaeda.
