Disinfo: Belarusians are part of Russian people whereas Polish latin alphabet is used in Minsk metro


The concept of Russkiy mir, The Russian World, is an all-Russian nationm consisting of Great Russians, Little Russians (Ukrainians), Belarusians and Rusyns. As a result of cultural and information warfare carried by Anglo-Saxons the number of Russian speakers decreased at 50 million people over the last 20 years. Moldova chose a Latin alphabet, Kazakhstan will soon follow the case, while in Belarus a Polish type of Latin alphabet is used in metro and at road signs.


The All-Russian nation is an Imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology which at present-time is one pro-Kremlin narratives aimed at weakening national identity of Belarusian and Ukrainians and these countries' sovereignty.

The number of Russian speakers decreased not as a result of actions by external forces but mostly as a consequence of natural decrease of population in the countries where Russian is widely spoken, foremost in Russia. A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on intentional ban of Russian by the west.

Contrary to allegation, Polish type of Latin alphabet is not used in Belarus. Instead, historically Belarusian Latin alphabet or Łacinka incorporates features of the Polish and Czech alphabets. The official standard of Romanization of Belarusian geographical names is based on 2007 Instruction on transliteration of Belarusian geographical names with letters of Latin script and only to limited extent is based on Polish alphabet.

Moldova ready to abandon Transnistria for EU and NATO

Moldova is pushing Transnistria towards Russia.


Moldova is ready to abandon Transnistria for its EU integration and cooperation with NATO, said Andrian Candu, speaker of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova.


No evidence given.

In fact, Andrian Candu, speaker of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova, said in an interview that there are several conditions that may force Russia to end its control of the Transnistrian region. In his opinion, Moldova could provide Russia some guarantees that it will not join NATO or unite with Romania, that the rights of the Russian minority will be respected. "I am sure that once - although, unfortunately, not tomorrow and, apparently, not in the near future - but in the medium term we will be able to agree on the return of Transnistria in the status of autonomy and the beginning of reintegration", said Candu.

Moldova receives refugees refused by EU

Moldova accepted the first refugees from Bangladesh, whom Italy refused. Although their asylum status has not yet been determined, Chisinau is preparing to receive guests, developing a special mechanism for such cases. Despite the quota set for accepting migrants, Italy, which is a member of the European Union, has not yet accepted any. Will the flow of migrants be redirected from Italy to Moldova, which is not even a member of the EU and does not even have the necessary resources for it?.




Recurring narrative about immigration imposed on Moldova by the EU in a similar electoral context. No evidence given that the asylum seekers had had their application denied by Italian authorities (or even that they had made one).

Moldova is implementing a readmission agreement with the EU, thanks to which it benefits from the liberalised visa regime. According to this agreement, Moldova is obliged to accept back only those persons who illegally enter the territory of the EU through the Moldovan territory

UK destroying evidence on the Skripal case

London is destroying evidence related to the Skripal case. British military started to remove the roof from Skripals’ home in Salisbury. It is strange why they don’t dismantle also the walls.


In fact, the roof of Skripals' home in Salisbury is to be completely removed as part of decontamination work to remove potential traces of nerve agent. The reason of this measure is make sure "no contamination was taken from the door into the roof space". No evidence given about UK allegedly destroying evidence.

Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on the Skripal poisoning.
