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.
