DISINFO: Western strategists make baseless accusations about Russia to undermine its political stability


Western political strategists make no secret of the fact that they want to undermine domestic political stability, resorting to the widest range of dishonest tools, false facts, and making baseless accusations regarding the Russian blogger and dissident Alexei Navalny, the Malaysian Boeing that crashed over Ukraine in July 2014, the British intelligence agent Sergei Skripal, and other topics.


Recurring disinformation narrative about Russia being falsely accused by the West, aiming to deflect any responsibility for Moscow’s violations of international law. This claim was neither counterbalanced nor critically challenged in the article.

Contrary to the claim, there is massive evidence of Russia’s involvement in all the mentioned incidents (see our previous debunks on the involvement of Russian state actors in the MH17 crash, and the poisonings of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and opposition leader Alexei Navalny).

Read similar disinformation cases alleging that the Navalny poisoning could be a strategy of the West to introduce anti-Russian sanctions, that there is no evidence of Navalny poisoning and that another reason would be found for sanctions if there had been no Navalny, in addition to other cases alleging that there was no evidence of Russia's involvement in the poisoning of Skripals and that Russia is accused of poisoning without proof.
