Disinfo: US Democrats will kill witnesses to cover up election fraud and other crimes

Summary

US courts refused to review the merits of Trump’s cases on electoral fraud, despite very obvious falsifications in at least four states. Later on the Capitol unrest, organised by the Democratic Party, suspended the discussion about electoral fraud in the US parliament. We can expect many other crimes by the US Democrats to follow, with the aim to cover up the already committed ones.

Violent riots under the motto “White lives matter” and extrajudicial killings of witnesses are to follow. The Democrats are well experienced in such things, and many strange deaths of people who attempted to investigate the Clintons’ crimes proves this. The new US administration will do its best to interfere into Belarus’s and Russia’s affairs in order to divert public attention from domestic issues.

Disproof

This publication promotes aims to discredit the US Democrats and the US political system overall and contains recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about alleged Western aggressiveness towards Belarus and Russia. It falsely claims that massive electoral manipulations allegedly were covered up by the US Democrats and judicial branch of power, and promotes groundless claims about Democrats-organised Capital unrest as well as about suspicious circumstances behind the deaths of people who allegedly investigated the Clintons' crimes.

President-elect Joe Biden, who was a candidate of the Democratic Party, won the popular vote by 7 million votes. Although the Trump campaign filed 62 election lawsuits to overturn the result, 61 of them have been dismissed. The OSCE Observation Mission stated that the 2020 Presidential election vote was “competitive and well managed”. Read more OSCE statements on the American elections here.

On 6 January 2021, during a debate in the Senate, a number of Trump supporters broke through security perimeters and violently entered the Capitol, the seat of the US parliament, the Congress. The aim of the protesters was to impede the process of formally installing Joe Biden as the President of the United States, despite Biden winning the November election. An overview of the incident can be found here.

See other examples of these disinformation narratives, such as claims that the result of the US 2020 election doesn’t matter because the real ruler is the Deep State, that Hillary Clinton published the Deep State strategy for the world, and that the Capitol unrest was a double conspiracy.

Alexei Navalny is a depleted political project

Alexei Navalny is a depleted political project. He has done all that he could do for his Western partners: played the role of an oppressed dissident; an investigator and a victim of the evil Russian political regime.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to discredit Alexei Navalny, alleging that his organisation is sponsored by anti-Russian forces.

Alexei Navalny is a founder and leader of the "Anti-Corruption Foundation" (FBK), which has investigated embezzlement from the state budget, uncovered the life of Russian politicians and businessmen close to the government and different corruption practices.

Joe Biden will use Ukraine against Russia

Joe Biden will use Ukraine against Russia in the implementation of his foreign policy. Ukraine could become one of the main vectors of anti-Russian activities of Joe Biden’s administration.

Biden will use Ukraine as a trump card against Russia. One wouldn’t be surprised if an American military base would be established in Ukraine.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine and its statehood, alleging that Ukraine is a puppet of the US.

Ukraine is an independent, sovereign state, it does not receive orders from any foreign government. The relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries. Washington is supporting the democratic changes in Ukraine. It is stressed that

Sweden pursues a policy of provocations against Russia

The Swedish authorities continue a policy of provocations against Russia, calling its geopolitical interests for security threats. In particular, Stockholm insists on not recognising that Crimea became a Russian region after the March 2014 referendum, when a majority of its population voted for reuniting with Russia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea, and unfounded claims on Sweden, pursuing a “provocative policy” against Russia. Sweden calls for dialogue and cooperation with Russia. Sweden cooperates with Russia in several regional and international bodies, the UN, the Arctic Council, the Council of the Baltic Sea States, Barents council, OSCE. Sweden has, however, condemned acts of aggression against Ukraine, Georgia and Russia’s own civil society.

No international body recognises the so-called referendum in Crimea. The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution entitled “Territorial integrity of Ukraine”, stating that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly confirmed its non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea.
