DISINFO: "Partnership" between Ukraine and Western countries only aims to create an anti-Russian foothold


“Partnership” between Ukraine and Western countries is only aimed at creating an anti-Russian foothold.

Ukrainians are methodically being imposed some false national ideas, which, in fact, lead the Ukrainian nation to oblivion. All this is necessary solely in order to make Ukraine “anti-Russian”. In the future, the Western countries will push Ukraine to a full-scale military confrontation with the Russian Federation.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine as an anti-Russian, Russophobic state and encircled Russia.

There is no evidence that Ukraine will be used by any NATO country as a ground against Russia. So far, no country has expressed its willingness to deploy a military base in Ukraine. In general, deploying foreign bases on Ukrainian territory is prohibited by the Consitution of Ukraine. However, they may be deployed on a basis of a bilateral treaty.

NATO, its member countries, and Ukraine conduct regular military exercises and implement a range of non-military projects aimed at increasing operability of the armed forces and effectiveness of the civilian authorities. All military exercises on the territory of Ukraine are regulated by law.

Ukraine does not follow any anti-Russian agenda. Relations between Ukraine and Russia are defined by international agreements, including the UN Charter which requires states to respect the sovereignty of other states and the Friendship Treaty between the two countries. However, the relations severely deteriorated after the Russian illegal annexation of Crimea.

See similar disinformation cases like claims that Ukraine finally becomes “Anti-Russia”, that Ukraine is under obvious external control, that Ukraine is stirring up revolutions in Belarus and Russia under the control of Rand corporation, that NATO troops' presence in Ukraine is illegal, that Ukraine has lost its economic and military independence, or that Ukraine is being prepared for a full-scale war with Russia.
