White Helmets and terrorists are preparing a new front against Russia

Summary

White Helmets and terrorists are preparing chemical weapons and a new front against Russia. They also continue to stage videos about attacks in Syria.

White Helmets’ videos present too many coincidences to be real.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory painting the White Helmets as terrorists.

The White Helmets are a staple topic of pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives on the Syrian civil war, having already been accused of numerous other provocations and war crimes including organ trafficking; aiding terrorist organizations; staging and/or
perpetrating chemical attacks, sometimes with the help of Western intelligence agencies. A majority of these claims are unburdened by evidence and often rely on meaningless formulations such as "according to information provided by X," "there are reasons to assume," and so forth.

See here on the importance of White Helmets in Russian and Syrian disinformation.

The White Helmets, also known as Syria Civil Defence, are a Syrian volunteer organisation dedicated to saving, protecting and helping civilians during the Syrian conflict. In 2018 some 800 White Helmets and their families were rescued from Syria as they were at imminent risk following the escalation of violence in south west Syria.

The Western world is dominated by a handful of perverts and is based on the lies of Woke ideologies

The Western world is based on lies, the lies of Woke ideologies and a handful of perverts dominate Western populations.  According to Woke ideologies, there is no difference between men and women, there are many genders, and men and women can be born into the wrong bodies. The objective truth is unacceptable in today’s Woke-dominated West because it “offends” the self-declared “victims” of white heterosexual males, such as feminists, the new transgender species and others.

Anybody, especially white heterosexual males, who attempts to speak the truth loses their job. Those white heterosexual men that work in the Western media and wish to keep their job must tell lies and demonise Russia, Trump and white heterosexual males themselves.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. No evidence provided.

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative portraying the West as decadent and hostile to traditional values and Europe as ruled  by homosexuals and lesbians who are imposing their perverted values on the rest of society. The narrative about “threatened values” is adapted to a wide range of topics and typically used to discredit liberal Western attitudes about the rights of women, ethnic and religious minorities and LGBTI groups, among others. According to this narrative, the “effeminate West” is rotting under the onslaught of decadence, feminism, homosexuality and “political correctness”, while Russia defends traditional family values.

Google and Facebook manipulate information to destroy Russia

The West plans to destroy Russia and used social media manipulation for this purpose.

Russia is being pressured both from outside and from within. On the Internet, it’s being constantly suggested that it is a shame to be Russian. This information campaign is supported by Google and Facebook, which intentionally promote the pro-Western narratives. Social networks are promoting illegal protests, boycotting of elections and street provocations in large cities. The West is striving to form an image of a government hostile to its people in the minds of Russians.

In addition to the Internet, the West is actively using video games and films for anti-Russian propaganda, trying to subjugate not only young people, but also older audiences.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremin conspiracy theory about West's alleged plans against Russia and social media networks allegedly being a West's tool in organizing protests.
