Disinfo: Western intelligence agencies are working with Navalny 

Summary

It’s not the patient [Alexey Navalny] that is working with Western intelligence agencies but Western intelligence agencies are working with him… there is information about it, specifically, that experts from the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency are working with him. It’s not the first time that they are giving instructions to Navalny.

Disproof

Unfounded claims, not supported by even a hint of evidence, that Navalny is cooperating with “Western intelligence”. 

Navalny has challenged the Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov to publish “evidence and facts that point to “work with CIA specialists”.

EU funds the protests in Kyrgyzstan in exchange for valuable minerals

The head of the EU representation’s in Kyrgyzstan political press and information section in open text awaits the beginning of mass disturbances in the country, right after the election. The video [on the internet] reveals that. The head of the opposition party reports: “we have been preparing for this, good sir, everything is going according to plan. Only the money is missing”.

The foreign guest asks in a business-like manner, “how much”? And gives the oppositioner his phone – “type in the sum”.

The price of the coup: 200,000 US dollars, but it is only the advance. The oppositioner typed the final sum into the smartphone of the good envoy from Europe. The sum was not voiced, however there was a promise after the victory to give the West the access to valuable minerals.

The EU envoy said: “we will give money, if there are protests like in Belarus”.

Disproof

Disinformation about the EU and Kyrgyzstan.

The disinformation claim appeared after a video was released on the internet of a meeting between an EU diplomat and a leader of an opposition  Chon Kazat party in Kyrgyzstan. The grainy video was taped in secret without the audio, subtitles were later added to it. There is no evidence to support any claims made in the video.

Armenia is a country controlled by the Soros Foundation

Armenia is a country controlled by the Soros Foundation.

With the appointment of Nikol Pashinyan to the post of the prime minister as a result of the “velvet revolution”, the position of the Soros Foundation in the country began to rapidly strengthen.

It is no coincidence that the George Soros Foundation, that is called the godfather of the “colour revolutions”, carried out its activities in Armenia until 2018.

Disproof

A disinformation narrative with no evidence given. Conspiracy theory about George Soros being a puppet master who organises 'colour revolutions' in post-communist states.

The Open Society Foundation-Armenia has contributed over $53 million to Armenia since it began its work in 1997. Since then the foundation has supported a broad range of civil society groups, including women’s shelters, investigative journalism outlets, human rights defenders, and organisations monitoring elections and public spending.

Nagorno-Karabakh conflict leads to more tensions in the Donbas

Ukraine is ready to team up with Azerbaijan and Turkey simply because Turkeys does not recognise Crimea as part of the Russian Federation. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has already led to more tensions in the Donbas, including increased military activity. Later, we will certainly see a Ukraine-Turkey alliance against Russia.

Disproof

The EU does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by the Russian Federation and continues to condemn this violation of international law. In June 2020 the European Council decided to renew the sanctions introduced in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by the Russian Federation until 23 June 2021.

Ukraine did express support for Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, but called for a peaceful solution and said it supports the efforts of Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - which is co-chaired by the Russian Federation.
