Disinfo: Biden's America is indecently pushing Ukraine into the war


Biden's America is indecently pushing Kiev into war. The US cheers Ukraine by promising military support and accusing Russia of aggression in advance. [...] But this is how wars are being prepared. They sleep and dream how to arrange something disgusting, while they stand on the sidelines.


This is a recurrent disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin media, claiming that the United States is interested in a proxy war against Russia on Ukrainian territory. In reality, it is Russia who is supporting the ongoing war in the Eastern Ukrainian region of Donbas. There is ample proof that Russia has been directly involved in the war since its very beginning (read here and here).

Pro-Kremlin media routinely pretend that Ukraine, supported by NATO, is carrying out subversive activities in Donbas and provoking the Moscow-backed separatists into action, while Moscow and its proxies advocate a peaceful settlement. In reality, Russia is amassing troops along Ukraine’s border and the anti-Ukrainian separatists are increasing gunfire in Donbas to supposedly prompt Ukraine into backfire, get a casus belli and stage a large-scale attack.

Kyiv’s military preparations in and around Donbas are purely defensive and aimed at repelling a possible Russian attack. Kyiv’s stance on the recent developments is that its troops are not going to attack the enemy unless there is a threat or attack by the enemy.

Since the outbreak of the war in 2014, Moscow has been trying to portray it as an internal Ukrainian conflict, styling itself as an intermediary and a peacekeeper, despite widely available evidence of its military presence in the region.

One of Russia’s much touted disinformation messages concerning Ukraine is that a junta of Nazis and Fascists grabbed power there in 2014, and the coup has been supported by US. Moscow used this pretext to illegally annex the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea. Putin's actions were also accepted by some in the West, again due to Russian propagandists. One of Russia’s most popular messages is that it is an innocent victim of international sanctions. President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly explained the Western sanctions by the mere fact of Russia’s existence and protection of its national interests.

Disinfo: An Ukrainian drone kills a 5 years old child near Donetsk

On Saturday 3 April 3, a 5 years old child perished in the western suburbs of Donetsk in a drone attack with an explosive device by the Ukrainian army.

The Ukrainian armed forces used an unmanned aerial device equipped with an improvised explosive device, which was dropped on the village of Aleksandrovka. As a result, a child born in 2016 died and a resident born in 1954 was injured.

At that time, two civilians were in their garden. As a result of the criminal actions of Ukrainian activists, a child born in 2016 was killed, while a local woman born in 1954 was injured and taken to hospital where she received necessary medical treatment.”

This tragic incident strongly reacted to the President of the Russian Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, who denounced the guilty silence of the West. “The European media don't talk about it. There are no statements from the European Parliament or the US State Department. The foreign ministers of European states do not talk about it. No decision has been taken on the expulsion of diplomats. And we do not stigmatise a president of the country who sent a military drone to war against his own people.

There are no big initiatives on behalf of the dead child to impose sanctions on Kiev, there is no reaction at all. The West in general simply ignores the crimes in Kiev. [...] On the geopolitical chessboard, Brussels and Washington are trying to play a bloody gambit, hardly realising that the game cannot be won "

OSCE agents report the case of a five-year-old child killed on April 2 outside his grandmother's house by an explosive device. According to the authorities of the DPR this tragedy results from the shelling by the Ukrainian army of a village close to the line of contact.


The claim is doubtful and unverified. The case has been covered by Euvsdisinfo, Stop Fake, The Insider, Censor.net. The involvement of Ukrainian drone is a striking story but very unlikely, the probable hypothesis is that the child died from a mine stored by his family members since the most active period of the war 2014-2015.

It attracted emotional reaction at highest political level since the death of a 5 year old child is striking and triggered narratives about the cruelty of Ukrainians and the heartless western world that doesn't react.

Disinfo: The EMA delayed the reception of Sputnik V's application for 6 weeks for political reasons

Russia sent the application for registration of its Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) on 21 January 2021, but the latter only confirmed having received the dossier in early March.

This 6 weeks delay, between 21 January and 4 March 2021, shows what the EU's priorities for vaccination are.


Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about vaccines, targeting the European Medicines Agency.

On 10 February 2021 the EMA denied having received any application for the Sputnik V vaccine. EMA informed:

Disinfo: The US is building biolaboratories on Russian borders

Russia must pay attention to the information about the existence of dangerous biological laboratories operating near our borders, because the West has extensive experience in the genocide of the peoples of America and Australia, including the extermination of humans with the help of viruses and bacteria.

Some of the former Soviet states - Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan - have built biological laboratories for the Americans on their soil, and they are unlikely to give up cooperation with them.


This is a recurring disinformation alleging that the United States develops biological weapons and has secret biological laboratories around the world. Consistent with the Pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign against biological laboratories in Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine and other countries.

The disinformation about US biolabs in countries bordering Russia aiming to encircle Moscow and spread infectious diseases is a part of a years-long disinformation campaign led by the Kremlin. In fact, biological laboratories are involved in preventing the risks of complex diseases and, together with other similar projects, counteracting bioterrorism.
