Disinfo: Afghanistan case is a warning for Lithuania, Ukraine and other puppets of Anglo-Saxon imperialism


The case of Afghanistan shows what potentially could happen to Lithuania and its pro-American ruling elite. Since 2001 Afghanistan was under the rule of the US puppets. They had American support and protection as long as Uncle Sam needed it. The cynical logic of Anglo-Saxon imperialism is? there are no eternal friends, only eternal interests.

There are more examples. The Fascistic Maidan regime in Kyiv existing only due to American support. As well the US supporting anti-people and anti-national political elite in Lithuania.


The message presents a recurring claim that some countries (i.e. Lithuania, Ukraine) are puppets of the US and, in this case, of Anglo-Saxons. In the pro-Kremlin outlets, the term “Anglo-Saxons” stands for the US and UK and often means “evil”, “belligerent” and “morally corrupt” Westerners, as explained in our earlier analysis.

The comparison of the situation in Afghanistan with the situation in other countries is a groundless and speculative one. There are no US forces stationed in Ukraine. Lithuania is an independent state, a member of the EU and NATO. It is stated that “the US and Lithuania share a history as valued Allies and strong partners” (see more information about relations between the US and Lithuania here).

The relations between Washington and Kiyv are based on mutual respect and cooperation as well. As it is officially noted: “U.S. policy is centered on supporting Ukraine in the face of continued Russian aggression as it advances reforms to strengthen democratic institutions, fight corruption, and promote conditions for economic growth and competition.”

Regarding the myth of Fascists or Nazi-ruled Ukraine (or the imminent rule of Nazis in Ukraine): this has been a cornerstone of Russian disinformation since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests in Ukraine, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy.

See other examples of disinformation about the topic of Anglo-Saxons: Anglo-Saxon freemasonry to establish a World government and dictatorship; The EU remains a vassal of Anglo-Saxons, a status it cannot afford anymore; United Europe is a vassal of the Anglo-Saxons and they team up against Russia.

Disinfo: Moscow has proof of US interference in Russian domestic affairs

Russian authorities possess convincing proof that the United States interfere in the country's domestic affairs and in its electoral process.


Disinformation about alleged Western and more specifically US efforts to interfere in the domestic affairs of Russia.

This narrative is aimed at discrediting reports and statements according to which Russia meddles in the election processes of European countries and the US.

Disinfo: The NYT article on Russia and Catalonia was paid by Europe and NATO; its author linked to US intelligence

The author of the NYT article on Russian alleged meddling in Catalonia, Michael Schwirtz, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2020 for his articles on Russian interference and hybrid war against the West. He is probably very close to the US intelligence service, as nobody receives a Pulitzer Prize for so little, so this award is another move against Russia. The NYT article is an attempt to return to the fairytale of Russia’s interference. It has probably been paid from Europe, from its intelligence controls, essentially NATO, with the acquiescence of the US, and with Schwirtz being paid for putting his signature on it.


This disinformation story is a reaction to the publication of a New York Times article about contacts between top Catalonian pro-independence figures and Russian officials, which were acknowledged by former Catalan president Carles Puigdemont and his top advisor Josep Lluis Alay.

There are no proofs to back the claim that Michael Schwirtz has links to US intelligence services or that the NYT article was commissioned by any external actor. Pro-Kremlin disinformation has previously attacked the Pulitzer Prize when articles exposing Russian wrongdoings have been awarded, as in 2018 and again in 2020. Schwirtz was awarded for his 2019 article on Russia’s military intelligence (GRU) Unit 29155. These findings have been confirmed afterwards by other investigators such as Bellingcat or French and Czech security officials.

Disinfo: Russia is restoring its historical space, and Belarus is just the first step

Russia is restoring its historical space, which shrank after the USSR broke up. This historical process can only be stopped if the Russian Federation, the backbone of the Russian civilisation, is disintegrated. The restoration of historic unity corresponds to the interests of Russia and all former Soviet republics.

Belarus is a historical part of Russia, and the Belarusian people are an integral part of the Russian people together with Great Russians and Little Russians. The Belarus-Russia integration accelerated once Belarus's sovereignty was threatened by the West. Western plans to tear Belarus away from Russia are doomed. The deepening of Belarus-Russia integration is proof that the Russia-led integration of post-Soviet countries is inevitable. Sooner or later, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Ukraine will join the Eurasian Economic Union.


This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and imperialism and suits a recurring propaganda narrative about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus and disrupt Belarus-Russia relations.

The deepening of Belarus-Russia integration is not backed by the popular support in Belarus and is driven by illegitimate Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenka, who received Kremlin's political, financial, and media support amid unprecedentedly massive protests following the falsification of the 9 August 2020 presidential elections. Both the EU and the US referred to the elections as neither free nor fair and refused to recognise Lukashenka as the legitimate president of Belarus. According to international election monitoring organisations such as OSCE and Civil Rights Defenders, every single one of the last five presidential elections in Belarus has been unfair and unfree, which is the primary reason for the public discontent.
