Disinfo: Anglo-Saxons invade the sphere of Russia's national interests in Ukraine and the Balkans


Russia is against NATO enlargement to Ukraine and the Balkans. In this case, Russia is just defending itself (against NATO). The West invades the sphere of Russia's national interests (the Balkans) and the historical territory of Russia (Ukraine), masking the invasion with rhetoric about a “Russian threat”. It is a traditional tactic of the Anglo-Saxons. Russia should strictly and consistently defend its own interests.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative Anglo-Saxons and the West.

In 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.

Ukraine and the countries in the Balkans region are sovereign and shape their own foreign and security policies. The concept of "sphere of interests" is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative of "lost sovereignty".

Disinfo: Poland and the Baltic states commit only destructive acts in the post-Soviet space

Since Poland and the Baltic states are unable to come up with anything but destructive acts in the post-Soviet space, the main Western countries use the services of these states only when they need these destructive actions. In crisis situations, Poland and the Baltic states are carefully pushed aside and the West solves the problem on its own.

This situation always takes place in the case of relations with Russia. Eastern Europe has reconciled with the fact that the leaders of the USA, Germany and France communicate with Putin bypassing them – they do not ask their allies what they think about the dialogue with the Kremlin. However, the talks with Lukashenka behind the backs of Eastern European NATO members is a particular humiliation.


A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about “aggressive” countries of Eastern and Central Europe. The second part of this massage presents Poland and the Baltic states as the countries, which have no “voice” in NATO, being the “puppet-states” or colonies of the United States or the EU.

Poland and the Baltic states are often groundlessly presented as anti-Russian, Russophobic countries involved in destructive actions in the post-Soviet space (such as organisation of a colour revolution in Belarus and undermining the security of Russia).

Disinfo: US needs armed confrontation between Europe and Russia to rescue its own economy

The threat of a conflict on the global level is as real as during the 1962 Сaribbean crisis [ed. Cuban missile crisis]. America is accelerating the crisis that could escalate into a real armed confrontation (with Russia). For Europe, it could destroy part of it. For the US, it is the possibility to rescue its own economy.


The message is mixing disinformation narratives about Europe as a puppet of the US, which is provoking war with Russia through its proxy and narratives of US policy driven exclusively by companies producing military equipment.

The US is not seeking war or any kind of confrontation with Russia. It is officially stated that:

Disinfo: Poland aggravates border situation to distract attention from domestic problems

Poland aims to aggravate the situation [in terms of the border crisis]. The Polish authorities have failed with the migrants, so they started looking for other opportunities and ways [to fight Belarus]. Warsaw has two goals: first of all, to present itself as a defender and, secondly, to distract attention from internal divisions and problems in Polish society.


Recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets about the migration situation on the EU-Belarus borders.

The claim that Poland aggravates the situation on the border with Belarus in order to fight with Belarus and reach its domestic goals is ungrounded.
