Disinfo: A crusade against traditional values will follow Biden’s victory


[Joe] Biden’s victory [in the US presidential race] will be followed by a new crusade against traditional values. For example, The “Human Rights Campaign”, the largest LGBT rights movement in the USA, has already called on President-elect Joe Biden to abandon accreditation of Christian schools and colleges that refuse to accept LGBT people, despite Christian opposition to these phenomena. This point will be implemented, but not immediately because it will further divide the country, which is already living through a cold civil war.

The matter of gay and transgender rights will become one of the main issues in the relationship of the new and subsequent US administration with its allies, and its importance will increase in the next decade (until the collapse of the United States of America).


This message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the moral decay of the West and the propaganda of the morally corrupt West.

According to these narratives, some liberal societies seek to destroy traditional values and to promote deviant sexual behaviour, and to be hostile to traditional religion.

At the same time, the narrative that this claim is trying to push is that the US is living in a civil war era, which has been a common narrative in the pro-Kremlin media since the fall of the Soviet Union.

See a similar narrative that the US is falling apart, or that Western societies are decadent, worship money and are devoted to the obsessive search for pleasure, or that Western Europe is moving away from its Christian roots, or that there is no sexual discrimination in Russia, or that the West allegedly promotes homosexual and lesbian values.

Disinfo: Germany depends on the US in the sphere of security

Germany is a dependent state in the sphere of security. This country is helpless without the US. This is a sign of dependence.


Recurring disinformation narrative about US hegemony in Europe. Pro-Kremlin outlets like to present other countries as American puppets. See similar narratives here, here and here.

Germany is an independent state and implements an independent policy. The narrative of the dependence of this country on the US is disinformation presented without any clear evidence. The statement that US military presence is “a sign of German dependence” is a speculative one. Germany and the US have close partner relations of two sovereign and independent countries. The US military presence in Germany is in the interest of both countries as well as in the interest of Europe security.

Disinfo: Too expensive for the Baltic States to synchronise their energy grids with Europe

Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia together with Russia and Belarus are part of the BRELL energy ring. The Baltic States want to disconnect from this ring and synchronise their grids with the rest of Europe through Poland by 2025. Lithuania explains that want to leave BRELL to be “energetically independent from Russia” but experts say that the process of disconnecting from BRELL will be too expensive for the Baltic States, the price of electricity for users will grow.


The case is part of the Kremlin's disinformation campaign about European energy policy.

The BRELL energy ring is a Moscow-controlled grid. It is a potential threat for the Baltic States because Russia continuously uses energy politics as a foreign policy instrument.

Disinfo: Sandu wants to arrange a second Karabakh in Transnistria

Sandu wants to arrange a second Karabakh in Transnistria (the title).

Sandu in an interview […] says without hesitation: withdraw the peacekeepers as soon as possible, and we will arrange our Karabakh for Tiraspol. That is, it intends to use the army against Transnistria.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative spread before the recent Presidential elections claiming that if Maia Sandu won, relations with Transnistria will deteriorate and the conflict will break out again. The elected president of the Republic of Moldova, Maia Sandu, is credited with statements she did not make in an interview given on November 20 to the publication Европейская правда (Ukraine).

In the interview, she said nothing about Russian peacekeepers, the introduction of the army into Transnistria, or Nagorno-Karabakh. On the contrary, she spoke of a peaceful settlement of the conflict: ”I believe that one day there will be a geopolitical opportunity for the reunification of Moldova, and we must be ready for this. But in any case, it should be a peaceful solution”. Talking about the solution of the conflict, Maia Sandu said ”it should include the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Moldova”.
