Disinfo: USA destroys Ukrainian identity

Summary

The US is purposefully destroying the local population of Ukraine, carrying out its complete Americanisation.

In the ’90s the Soros Foundation was registered for the first time in Ukraine, and it began churning out a new managerial, intellectual, literary, pseudo-intellectual and teaching elite for the country.

For thirty years of Ukraine’s independence, they managed to do everything, visit everywhere and reform everything. Crushing everyone and everything, they educated their cadres, and by 2014 prepared the ground for taking over control of all resources in the country, which, in principle, happened. Since 2014, Ukraine has lost its sovereignty, all the levels of control were and are with people with foreign passports.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US, the American billionaire and the philanthropist George Soros, presenting him as a person who aims to control political systems in countries around the world, and Ukraine as well.

Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world. The EU and the US work closely with Ukraine.

George Soros did found the "Open Society Foundation", inspired by Karl Popper’s concept of the “open society”, which aims to promote civil society, the rule of law, human rights and liberal democracy around the world by funding civil society groups.

The International Renaissance Foundation is a Ukrainian NGO founded by Soros; it played an important role in supporting civil society during the Euromaidan protests. The foundation ensured that legal aid was made available throughout the crisis to civic activists, protesters, and journalists; supplied victims of violence with medical care; enabled civil society solidarity and organisation; supported channels like Hromadske TV in independent, live reporting about events on the Maidan; and documented cases of torture, beatings, and police and abuse by the courts. However this in no way can be linked to taking control of a society or country.

See previous cases alleging that George Soros will buy all banks and land in Ukraine and that he will soon gain control of the country.

After the anti-Armenian coup of 2018, the power belongs to LGBT people

In the Republic of Armenia, power belongs to LGBT people. This is a consequence of the anti-Armenian coup of 2018, in which the Soros Foundation has a prominent place among many donors. Our people, their legitimate government should not be blamed for this; the small country did not have the resources to withstand the perfect technology based on global networks. However, power was seized by the mutant junta. They serve not the goals of our nation, but the goals of external forces, they rapidly destroy all the resources of the Nation and the State.

Disproof

Unfounded statement. Conspiracy theory and recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about lost sovereignty and threatened values as well as colour revolutions. This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, especially the former Soviet republics, as West-funded "coups".

The narrative has been applied, among others, to reports about protests in Ukraine, Venezuela, Georgia, and Belarus, as well as to portray the West as an aggressive actor constantly preparing new coups and bringing power to LGBT people.

The West is using Navalny’s case to obstruct Nord Stream 2

The main objective of the “Navalny case” for some western countries is to obstruct the construction of the “Nord Stream 2” line. This is in the interest of the United States to increase its supplies of liquefied gas to Europe.

Disproof

The claim advances recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the poisoning of activist Alexei Navalny and the alleged harmful influence of Washington on European politics.

There are no grounds for connecting Navalny's poisoning with Nord Stream 2, or to allege US involvement in the incident. The activist fell ill on a 20 August flight from Siberia to Moscow. Initially hospitalized in Omsk, he was transferred to the Charité hospital in Berlin at the request of his family.

Ukraine will present another propaganda film about Donbas at the Oscars

Ukraine will send “Atlantis”, a propaganda film about Donbas, as a contender for an Oscar in the category of best foreign language film.

The plot of the film depicts the events of 2025, when Ukraine allegedly defeats Russia in a war for Donbas. As a result, the region comes under the control of Kyiv, but the territory is declared uninhabitable. In the film, the roles are played by non-professional actors – mainly militants who fought in the Donbas, volunteers and supporters of the criminal regime.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Oscar Committee has nominated the drama "Atlantis" directed by Valentin Vasyanovich for the "International Feature Film" Oscar of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
