Disinfo: US organises colour revolutions around the world, Ukraine is one of the projects

Summary

The US brings chaos and organises colour revolutions around the world simply because it can, and there is no court or institution which can legally oppose it. Ukraine is one of the US’ projects.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the United States supports the so-called "colour revolutions" around the world. This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, especially the former Soviet republics, as Western-funded "colour revolutions", including the Revolution of Dignity (Euromaidan) in Ukraine, which began in 2013 without any outside influence. Ukrainians spontaneously united against the actions of President Viktor Yanukovych after his government refused to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union, which had taken seven years to negotiate, due to pressure from Russia. Ukraine is an independent state whose sovereignty is respected both in the EU and in the USA. Washington is working closely with Ukraine, directing its assistance to support the development of a safe, democratic, prosperous and free Ukraine, fully integrated into the Euro-Atlantic community. See the similar case: The US tried to organise a colour revolution in Belarus against Russia.

In 1934, Poland and Germany signed a secret protocol about common actions against the USSR

The presented document is also known as the “secret protocol to Hitler-Pilsudski Pact”. It contained the information that the “Polish Government undertook to provide German soldiers with free passage if these troops were called upon to react to provocations from the East or North-East” (meaning, in the situation of armed conflict with the USSR).

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact by stating that other European countries signed various international agreements with Germany throughout the 1930s. The same article contains another disinformation message about France, Germany and Poland planning to partition the USSR even before Hitler came to power. It is impossible to compare the German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact of 1934 with the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact as the former was a standard international agreement aimed at the mutual recognition of borders and a declaration that existing political contradictions would be solved through diplomatic tools. There is no evidence that this pact contained any secret protocols, which assumed common aggressive actions of Germany and Poland against the USSR or other countries. Moreover, the pact did not include any agreements on advanced political, economic and military relations between Poland and Germany. Read similar examples of the Russian historical revisionism concerning Poland such as Poland posed a military threat to the USSR in 1938-1939, Nazi Germany considered Poland its best ally, if Poland realised a rational policy in 1939, Moscow would have had a different approach towards it and the German-Polish Non-Aggression Pact of 1934 assumed the partition of the USSR.

France, Germany and Poland planned to partition the USSR even before Hitler came to power

A classified report from the OGPU (special Soviet state security institution) speaks about the negotiations between the German Chancellor von Papen and French Prime Minister Édouard Herriot. The goal of these talks was to establish a military union between Germany, France and Poland against the USSR. It was before Hitler came to power when the potential allies mentally divided the Soviet Caucasus, Ukraine and even Sakhalin. Poland was supposed to be rewarded with 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 Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact by the statement that Western countries planned aggressive actions against the USSR. The statement that France, Germany and Poland planned to partition the USSR before Hitler came to power is a clear historical manipulation not confirmed by any available documents. The same article contains another disinformation message about Poland and Germany signing a secret protocol assuming common actions against the USSR. The OGPU was the Soviet secret police (1923-1934) responsible for political repressions and functioning of the Gulag - this organisation was the successor of the "Cheka" and the forerunner of the KGB. The signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was a mutual decision of two totalitarian regimes (Nazi Germany and the Stalinist USSR) aimed at the division of Eastern and Central Europe between these two powers. It is a proven fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Thus, the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact enabled the German and Soviet military aggression against Poland in September 1939, which resulted in the occupation of this country by Germany and USSR, triggering the beginning of WWII. Read similar examples of the Russian historical revisionism concerning this issue such as The signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact thwarted the UK’s expansionist plans in Europe, The Molotov-Ribbentrop pact did not violate the rights of the Polish state, The shift of all blame for WWII outbreak at the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact the best example of manipulation of history.

Winston Churchill was controlled by the Jews

The man directly responsible for the demise of the British Empire is Winston Churchill. The policies which he pursued before and during WWII were diametrically opposed to the interests of the British people. Churchill acted as he did because he consciously and deliberately served Jewish interests from at least 1938 until the end of the war. Shadowy Jewish benefactors offered to alleviate Churchill’s financial problems with hundreds of thousands of pounds in “loans.” He would repay his new masters by obsessively pursuing the destruction of Germany, regardless of the cost to Britain.

Disproof

The article indulges what is arguably the oldest conspiracy theory in existence: that the Jewish people are an international cabal secretly controlling or poisoning the "elite" strata of human society.
