According to pro-Kremlin outlets, this week the Americans should be proud of successfully organising the ‘yellow vest’ protests in France and autocéphale in Ukraine. Yet Kremlin-linked media also state that Americans are increasingly in love with Russia and President Putin.

But let’s start in Brussels and with the EU which – according to Russian media – is an obedient vassal of Washington and is currently harassing the countries which wish to normalise relations with Russia.

And one should not play games with the Americans, according to the pro-Kremlin conspiracy theorists – look at what happened in France: the United States and United Kingdom, we learn, organised the ‘yellow vests’ protests to remove President Macron from power – and, being clever, then accused Russia of being behind it. According to pro-Kremlin media, looking for evidence that Russia might have been involved in the ‘yellow vest’ protests is just a ploy to cover up this political wrongdoing.

Finally on the Americans themselves: as mentioned above, pro-Kremlin outlets announce an outbreak of admiration for Russia and President Vladimir Putin in the US. In reality, though, Americans’ attitudes regarding Russia are now at their worst since the collapse of the USSR.

Russophobia

The old narrative about the West as anti-Russian was again cultivated this week. A clear example this time, it was claimed, was the UN General Assembly’s resolution urging the Russian Federation to withdraw its military forces from Crimea and end the occupation there. According to disinforming outlets, Ukrainians are encouraged through this resolution to commit “new crimes” and provocations in the name of Western political ambitions.

We were also informed, once again, that Russia has been wrongly accused of the Skripals’ poisoning! To add to the flow of “proof” coming from pro-Kremlin outlets – over forty false narratives so far – we heard that the fact that the Skripals are hidden away from public eye is the “proof” that the UK itself is guilty of their poisoning.

No, Ukraine is not an aggressor

According to Kremlin media, Ukraine is an aggressor and this week we learned that its president has declared war on Russia, through a new law that allows Ukraine’s armed forces to detain and shoot on sight all Russian vessels in the Black Sea. On top of that, there is a plan for a chemical provocation in Mariupol – with the help of those British specialists who poisoned the Skripals, of course.

Conspiracy

The cherry on top of the disinformation cake is the disturbing conspiracy theory that there are apparently cold rooms in a Georgian laboratory, and that dangerous materials are tested there. We don’t want to give ideas to Kremlin trolls, but there are cold rooms in most laboratories we think, and in plenty of ordinary houses as well. They are called pantries. We can only imagine what kind of dangerous materials one could find there.
