Disinfo: Western curators spent more than $1 billion for the coup in Armenia

Summary

Western curators and screenwriters have invested huge sums of money in the coup in May 2018. More than $1 billion. Until now he (PM of Armenia) has not been able to solve a number of important tasks set by the Western curators. Specifically, the issue of Karabakh, the withdrawal of the Russian military base, Armenia’s withdrawal from the EAEU and CSTO. As well as the adoption of the Istanbul Convention and the decline of the role of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Moreover, the destruction of Armenian culture and Armenian education. If PM will be replaced by someone devoted to Armenia’s national interests and values, then $1 billion or more will be lost. And Western plans related to the coup in Armenia will be destroyed.

 

 

Disproof

This is a conspiracy theory with no evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative presenting colour revolutions as attempts by the West to overthrow regimes in post-Soviet states and in other regions. This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, especially the former Soviet republics, as West-funded "colour revolutions".

There was no coup d'etat in 2018 in Armenia, but peaceful protests of hundreds of thousand people in response to Serzh Sargsyan's third consecutive term as the most powerful figure in Armenia.

The Prime Minister of Armenia assured that he has no shadow obligations to anyone, since he received money for the revolution from ordinary people.

We spent about $200 thousand on our revolution. Where did this money come from? We asked the people. We had an electronic wallet, and Armenians from all countries, by the way, mostly from Russia, gave us money. We spent this money, and every week during the revolution we published how much we spent and for what.

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

Read also similar cases claiming that the West is a threat to national values: the Istanbul Convention will destroy traditional families, it is attacking identity and traditions, that an influx of 50 000 perverts is expected from abroad, convention is a threat to the Armenian Army, Soros foundation is organising clashes in Armenia, serving foreign agendas aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood, and that Armenia is occupied by Soros.

Jews were attacked with knives and sticks in a Ukrainian city of Uman

A group of about 30 Ukrainian thugs went on a rampage close to midnight on Friday night in Uman and mercilessly beat Jews outside the zion of Rav Nachman. Witnesses say that the Ukrainians were running wildly through the street looking for Jews with knives and bars in their hands. Four Jews were taken to the nearest hospital on Friday night. The police did show up at the scene but didn’t lift a finger to help the Jews. They just stood by and watched what was happening.

 

Disproof

An attempt by pro-Kremlin media to defame Ukraine and depict Ukrainians as anti-Semitic.

The National Police of Ukraine reported, that there was no such fight in Uman and, accordingly, there are neither victims nor attackers. The communication department of the National Police reported that no one had contacted either hospitals nor the police.

PS752: By admitting its guilt, Iran defused a US/NATO/MOSSAD false-flag operation

It may be that US/NATO/MOSSAD/ISIS/UKROPS shot down the plane in a false flag op to further inflame world opinion against Iran. Expecting Iran to deny their involvement, a powerful, emotional and ongoing good guy/bad guy drama could be created and exploited. By Iran’s acceptance of responsibility, it shuts off the propaganda narrative before it gets started. Whether they actually did it or not, by taking responsibility, it becomes moot and the subject is closed. A smart move.

[—] The downing of PS-752 belongs in the same file as the JFK hit, Operation Northwoods, Gulf of Tonkin, October Surprise, Iran Contra, Kuwaiti incubators, Serb aggression, 9/11, Iraq WMD’s, Libyan R2P, Maidan, Russian annexation of Crimea and occupation of Donbass. In other words, complete bullshit.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the downing of the Ukrainian flight PS 752.

Iran has recognised that its military forces unintentionally shot down the passenger jet. On January 11, the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani wrote on Twitter: “Armed Forces’ internal investigation has concluded that regrettably, missiles fired due to human error caused the horrific crash of the Ukrainian plane & death of 176 innocent people.”

PS752: Iranian elites attempt to betray Iraq, Syria, Palestine and their own people

PS-752 had 15 different lights, steady and strobe, some very high power, and all illuminated when it was hit at 8,000 feet. It could have been identified by the naked eye as a civilian plane, even from a dozen km away.

The “accident” story is a lie. And whoever tells it, whoever they may be, is lying. For whatever reason. And you know, I know, from long years of experience, that the most common reason you lie, or I lie, or anybody else lies, is because either we have done something wrong, or we are trying to trick somebody. Not always, but almost always. What other reason could there be? What could the righteous reasons be for telling a lie to your nation, and to the world? There may well be some. Or not. [—] Iranian elites may have made a deal to submit to U.S. pressure and hegemony, and betray Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and above all, their own country.
