Disinfo: NATO is preparing for war with Russia to get its esources

NATO is preparing for war with Russia, because Western countries want to gain access to Russia’s resources. The NATO operations on the Eastern flank of the Alliance are serving as provocations, which will eventually lead to a nuclear apocalypse.


Neither the US nor other NATO members have intentions to attack Russia. NATO's decision to increase its military presence in the eastern part of the Alliance is a response to Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine. The UN GA Resolution 68/262, which condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, was supported by 100 United Nations member states. As stated by NATO heads of state and government at the Wales Summit in September 2014, "the Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest".

Disinfo: The German Intelligence Service is becoming a branch of the CIA

The German Intelligence Service is becoming a branch of the CIA.


No evidence given. Germany is an independent and sovereign country.

After the scandal about German foreign intelligence agency (BND) spying on its European allies for the NSA, "chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet signed off on the reforms to keep the country’s spies on a tighter leash. Oversight of the spy agency directly from Merkel’s office will be beefed up with an external watchdog panel of jurists, and the list of duties the BND carries out for the NSA has been overhauled."

Disinfo: The US led a coup in Ukraine

The US led a coup in Ukraine and instated a puppet government. Western propaganda is trying to convince people that Russia is preparing for the invasion of the Baltic states, Poland, Romania, Ukraine and Georgia. US president George H. W. Bush promised Soviet leader Gorbachev that NATO will not move further eastwards.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court recognised that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation". The international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February 2014 when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government. The European Union stated in July 2014 that "arms and fighters continue flowing into Ukraine from the Russian Federation". At the NATO Summit in Wales in September 2014, NATO leaders condemned in the strongest terms Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and demanded Russia to stop and withdraw its forces from Ukraine and from the country’s border. NATO leaders also demanded Russia to comply with international law and its international obligations and responsibilities; refrain from aggressive actions against Ukraine; halt the flow of weapons, equipment, people and money across the border to the separatists; and stop fomenting tension along and across the Ukrainian border. Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted Russia's military presence in Ukraine in 2015.
