US sabotages Putin’s peace efforts in Ukraine

Summary

The Trump regime has sabotaged Putin’s peace efforts in Syria, Iran, Ukraine, and North Korea. [–] US government officials, the entirety of the US media, and Washington’s British and French vassals have consistently blamed false flag chemical attacks, and in the case of Douma a fake news chemical attack that has been certified not to have taken place, on Assad. [–] Washington plan to use its jihadists to begin destabilising Russia and China

Disproof

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation and conspiracies. Russia provoked a war in Ukraine and continues to support and weapon pro-Russian separatists.

For Douma attack:

On April 7, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma,with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

See our timeline of the ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign surrounding the Salisbury poisoning and the Douma chemical attack.

On April 10 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun.

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.

Latvian Army shot at civilians in January 1991

Latvian Army General Raimonds Graube carried out a provocation by shooting at civilians in January of 1991, just as in 2014 in Ukraine on Maidan where there were unknown snipers who fired on civilians. A movie on the topic shows how pseudo-revolutions are organized.

Disproof

As shown by DFRLab, the aim of the movie appears to be to resurface old allegations of violence during Latvia’s transition to independence and away from the Soviet Union.

The filmmakers of the documentary include Andrey Tatarchuk, a journalist with indirectly Kremlin-financed Baltnews.lv, and a Russian artist from Estonia named Sergey Chetvertnoy. Dmitry Yermolaev, the Editor in Chief of the official Kremlin media outlet Rosiyskie Vesti Latvian edition accused two Latvian military officers of shooting at civilians. In 2005, the Latvian Constitution Protection Bureau (SAB) blacklisted Yermolaev as a Russian intelligence officer.

Stalin Awarded the Territory of South Ossetia to Georgia

The territory of South Ossetia was awarded to Georgia by Stalin, ignoring the will of South Ossetians.

Disproof

Historical revisionism. The territory of the so-called South Ossetia has never been outside Georgia’s jurisdiction. Under the Treaty of Moscow of 7 May 1920, Russia recognized Georgia’s independence. Under the treaty, the territory at stake was in Georgia’s jurisdiction. Accordingly, in 1922, Stalin could not possibly award additionally another territory to Georgia.

International football tournament in Sweden deems pork to be “haram”

The organizers of the international youth football tournament Gothia Cup, organized every year in Gothenburg, have decided from now on to be an Islam-adapted event. It is proclaimed that pork meat is now unauthorized – haram – to serve.

Disproof

It is a common disinformation narrative about Sweden that the country is being "islamized".

The Gothia Cup tournament leader explains that for the last fifteen years, the tournament has served this kind of menu for practical reasons. It is an international youth tournament and the menu is adapted to suit as many as possible. The tournament has not declared pork meat to be "haram" and pork is not banned on the area, it is just not included in the menus served to the teams that participate. Further debunking by Faktiskt.se
