Disinfo: Biden is pushing Ukraine into an open conflict with Russia


With the coming to power of President Joe Biden, Ukraine's course on the Donbas issue has become many times more aggressive. And this is no coincidence. The US is openly provoking Kyiv to aggravate the situation, but it is unlikely to intervene in the event of an open confrontation between Ukraine and Russia. Such developments were to be expected even when it became clear that the Democratic candidate was winning the presidential elections in the US. Moreover, the newly elected American president was initially, back in the days of the Ukrainian Maidan, one of the most active initiators of the armed coup in Kyiv, albeit behind the scenes. We can say with high confidence that a provocative project to destabilise the situation, developed in the offices of either the CIA or NATO headquarters, is starting to be implemented on the contact line in Donbas.


This article has several recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives: the claim that the Euromaidan was a coup, that Ukraine is under external control by the US, a disinformation narrative about Joe Biden and claiming that the United States is interested in a proxy war against Russia on Ukrainian territory.

There was no coup d'état in Ukraine. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former president Viktor Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. No evidence that Biden was the chief curator of the 2014 Euromaidan protests in Kyiv.

In fact, the Ukrainian Armed Forces do not receive orders from any foreign country and their activities in Donbas only depend on the current situation in the war zone. Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world.

There is no evidence given to support the claims that Joe Biden or CIA or NATO are involved in the Donbas conflict. NATO experts, who are stationed in Ukraine, for instance, help the country's Armed Forces with the military reform.

See the similar case claiming that Biden is behind the Ukrainian nationalist regime, that Biden uses Zelenskyy as an intermediary against Russia, that Ukraine ready for attack in Donbas at Washington’s nod or that Biden's America is indecently pushing Ukraine into the war.

Disinfo: Black people in America are the target of an emerging police state

Black people in America are the target of an emerging police state that monitors people based on the colour of their skin and arrests black people whenever the opportunity arises. There are over 2.3 million people in US prisons, and most of them are coloured people. On the other hand, millions of White American Trump supporters believe that they are victims of a left-wing coup d’état, and this has led to revolts after Trump’s defeat in the 2020 presidential elections. This enormous split in American society could lead to a new wave of non-structural and structural violence across the USA.


The messages in this article fit into two recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, one seeking to discredit liberal democracy and Western institutions by alleging that Western societies are becoming authoritarian police states, and the other claiming that massive and violent domestic conflict and civil war in socially divided America is imminent.

It is not true that America has or is about to become a police state that monitors people and arrests them based on the colour of their skin. In the US Constitution, the civil and legal rights of black and minority citizens are guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amendments, which the Civil Rights Act of 1964 enforces.

Disinfo: Russia poses zero threat to other countries, including Ukraine

Reports of Russian military buildup near the Ukrainian border are no cause for alarm, given that Russia does not pose any threat to Ukraine or any other country.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative falsely casting Russia as a benign, non-aggressive state.

Russia's army manoeuvres are indeed a cause for concern, particularly given the recent flare-up of armed hostilities between Ukraine and the Russia-backed militants in the occupied Donbas. See here for detailed debunking by POLYGRAPH.info.

Disinfo: US needs a war in Ukraine to stop Nord Stream 2 pipeline

The American-Polish plan of torpedoing the Nord Stream 2 pipeline failed. [...]

In maximum 6 months the Nord Stream 2 will be completed. The US is categorically opposed to it, thus it needs war, which would lead not only to the funeral of the Nord Stream 2 but also lead to dependence of Europe on expensive American liquified natural gas. [In that case] Poland will fullfil the role of the hub distributing the American gas to other European countries.

This is the price and purpose of what we are observing today. And in this situation we mustn't be shy, we must show our fist!


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and war in Ukraine.

The United States sees the Nord Stream 2 pipeline as a Russian geopolitical project intended to divide Europe and weaken European energy security. However there is no basis to the claims that it seeks to ignite war in Ukraine to stop it.
