Disinfo: US Secret Service is behind the terror attack in New Zealand


US Secret service is behind the terror attack in New Zealand.

The terror attack in New Zealand is a cover up of a real global conflict – the trade war between the US and China. China is the largest trading partner of Australia and New Zealand. Americans are worried because more Chinese capital might mean the access to the “Five eyes” intelligence network. That is why they are trying to make New Zealand unattractive for Chinese investments by building a racial barrier.

US promises loans to Belarus only if the opposition controlled by the West gets 45% of votes in the parliament

Washington and London press President Aleksandr Lukashenko to conduct a political reform, consisting in the opposition, controlled by the West, receiving at least 45% votes in the parliament. Lukashenko would have 30% of seats in the parliament and the remaining ones will be given to marginal parties, including 2% for the quickly created pro-Russian ones. Only then would the US promise loans to Belarus.


No evidence given. No evidence that that such negotiations are taking place between Lukashenko and the US and British authorities. The constitutional reform in Belarus is now under discussion.

This story is part of the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West trying to “buy” Belarus and remove it from Russian sphere of influence.

The Atlantic Council is a NATO propaganda organisation

Facebook turned to the Atlantic Council, which is an organisation for NATO propaganda, for services to identify fake pages. 

No evidence provided. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about US and social media.

The Atlantic Council is an international think tank that is registered as a nonprofit organisation. The policy of the Atlantic Council also includes intellectual independence. One of the paragraphs of this policy details how the organisation must not adopt or advocate positions on particular matters.

The US military has stolen 50 tons of gold from Syria

United States has transported approximately 50 tons of gold from the regions occupied by ISIS in the Deir ez-Zor Governorate. The gold was stolen from Syria, and subsequently stored in an American military base, located in Ayn al-Arab. In addition, US forces had been transporting large chests filled with ISIS gold from the al-Dashisha area in the southern part of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about US support for terrorists that is presented entirely without evidence. The source quoted in this article is SANA, an official organ of the Syrian government, which regularly promotes the idea of cooperation between the US and jihadist forces.
