Disinfo: US began a dangerous nuclear experiment in Ukraine


Americans began a dangerous nuclear experiment in Ukraine through the company Westinghouse.

Kiev pretends that US is ready to transfer a technology that could be used to make nuclear weapons in order to raise Poroshenko’s ratings ahead of the elections.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the use of nuclear power in Ukraine and the upcoming presidential elections.

According to Ukrainian media, Westinghouse will provide Ukraine with nuclear fuel production technology for energy purposes.

Belarus survived six attempts of colour revolutions inspired by the West

In 25 years of Lukashenko’s rule the Belarusian state survived not less than six attempts of ‘colour revolutions’ inspired by foreign centres of power with the assistance of local collaborators. All these attempts  failed due to high public support to the national authorities and good job done by Belarus’ law-enforcement agencies.


No evidence presented to prove the multiple 'colour revolution' inspired by foreign entities in Belarus.

The disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in EU neighbourhood.

In 2011 Americans Politically Assassinated Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Americans framed former head of the IMF Dominique Strauss Kahn – who was a favourite for the upcoming presidential election in France in 2011. He was a critic of US economic policy, harmful for France as well. As president of France, he might have been inconvenient for the Americans. It was a political assassination of a man, who had all chances of becoming the President of France. Therefore in 2012 François Hollande, who was considered useful for the Americans, was put into the presidential chair in France.


Conspiracy theory with no evidence. Consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about American domination in Europe and lack of democracy in France. For examples see: French Maidan is a lesson for those who refuse to obey American diktat; France is not a liberal democracy.
