Operation INFEKTION was a KGB disinformation campaign to spread information that the United States invented HIV/AIDS as part of a biological weapons research project at Fort Detrick, Maryland. The Soviet Union used it to undermine the United States’ credibility, foster anti-Americanism, isolate America abroad, and create tensions between host countries and the U.S. over the presence of American military bases (which were often portrayed as the cause of AIDS outbreaks in local populations).
Fairly recent research shows what can arguably be seen as the ongoing effect on the public mind.
In 1992, 15% of Americans considered it definitely or probably true that "the AIDS virus was created deliberately in a government laboratory." In 2005, a study by the RAND Corporation and Oregon State University revealed that nearly 50% of African Americans thought AIDS was man-made, over 25% believed AIDS was a product of a government laboratory, 12% believed it was created and spread by the CIA
The KGB was concerned that the FLQ's terrorist attacks could be linked to the Soviet Union. It designed a disinformation campaign and forged documents to portray the FLQ as a CIA false flag operation. A photocopy of the forged "CIA document" was "leaked" to the Montreal Star in September 1971.
Retired KGB Maj. Gen. Oleg Kalugin described active measures as "the heart and soul of Soviet intelligence" (...) A few claims of active measures against the United States were described in the Mitrokhin Archive:
-Discrediting of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
September 11, 2001 was directly rooted in a joint Soviet/Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) operation conceived in the aftermath of the 1967 Six-Day Arab-Israeli War. The object of this joint operation was to repair Moscow's prestige by turning the Islamic world against Israel and by creating a rabid and violent hatred for its main supporter, the United States. The strategy was to portray the US, this land of freedom, as a Nazi-style "imperial-Zionist country" financed by Jewish money and run by a rapacious "Council of the Elders of Zion" (the Kremlin's epithet for the US Congress)

Nowhere there is Putin quoted saying "Putin has announced that he was in possession of "proofs" that the US intelligence was behind 9/11."
In a Feb. 7 article, the website claimed that the Russian government was preparing to release evidences that 9/11 was a "false flag" operation orchestrated by the U.S. government and its intelligence services.
A Russian Communist Party newspaper is claiming Russia will publish satellite photos that claim the U.S. was involved in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. It comes as a top Russian aide warned the U.S. to not “arm Ukraine” in the country’s fight against separatist rebels in the east.
Pravda, which was the mouthpiece of the Soviet Union before it collapsed, claims that “Putin is going to hit once, but he’s going to hit hard.” Pravda is currently owned by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, but it was used as a propaganda tool by the Soviet Union for most of its existence and particularly under dictator Joseph Stalin. The current form of Pravda isn’t much different, which features a smorgasbord of pro-Russia and anti-America articles with inflammatory headlines like “USA creates Fourth Reich to destroy Russia,” “America’s Iron Curtain,” and it has published articles touting Russia’s nuclear arsenal.
Pravda.ru (formerly Pravda Online) is a Russian internet news website established in 1999 and owned by pro-Kremlin Pravda.ru Holding (headed by Vadim Gorshenin).
