"Yellow Vests" are Trump's instrument to fight the Rotschilds

Summary of Disinformation

The Yellow Vest movement was instigated by US President Donald Trump to force France to leave the Paris Agreement. Trump wants to dismiss the entire agreement, which is a brainchild of the Rotschild bankers. Trump has at several occasions publicly expressed sympathy with the Yellow Vests. The Yellow Vest is following the same pattern as the “Colour Revolutions”, supported by the US in Eastern Europe.

Macron got the job as President of France by the Rotschilds, who use the myth about Global Warming to forward their own pecuniary interests


Conspiracy theory with anti-semitic overtones.

No evidence is given; the source in the article, a member of the influential Russian Izborsk Club, is lining up a plethora of traditional unfounded claims; using hearsay and innuendo to create an image of the President of France as an instrument of powerful financial circles; in this case, the Rotschild family. The fable of the omnipotent Rotschilds is a classic anti-semitic myth with roots in Medieval Europe, currently frequently employed by mainstream Russian media.

The article is published in the Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda - one of Russias largest media outlets. Anti-semitism, often disguised as "anti-capitalism" has lately reappeared as an element of the pro-Kremlin propaganda.
