Disinfo: US is waging the Ukraine war, so Russia should negotiate with it


The United States and Russia must negotiate. The US is waging this war. There is no Annalena Baerbock, no Scholz, no Macron. They are nobody. Here is the United States, which is the organiser of this war. It is against Russia.

There is a contradiction between the US and Europe, despite all their statements.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that the US is waging a proxy-war against Russia, using Ukraine as a tool, and about alleged peace negotiations. This claim was made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

Russia organised and launched its unprovoked aggression against Ukraine under false pretexts, including the groundless allegations that Ukraine was committing genocide in non-government-controlled areas on the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions.

There are no substantial differences between the US and its European allies concerning the Ukraine war. The West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter Article 51, to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine. There are no NATO troops on the frontline in Ukraine.

Ukraine's Western partners do not discuss matters concerning Ukraine without Ukraine.

As far as peace negotiations are concerned, the EU Council Conclusions of 09 February 2023 state unequivocally:

"Russia must stop this atrocious war immediately. The European Union will stand by Ukraine with its steadfast support for as long as it takes."

The EU supports Ukraine’s initiative for a just peace, including:

  • -President Zelenskyy’s peace formula

  • -Ukraine’s 10-point peace plan

  • -a peace formula summit.
