Disinfo: Biden’s visit to Kyiv proves that the West is a direct party in the Ukrainian war


Biden’s visit to Kyiv proves that the collective West is a direct party in the conflict in Ukraine. It is a ground-breaking situation when the President of a great power comes to Ukraine [... ]. It means that the confrontation will continue, and the collective West led by the US will supply Ukraine with heavy weapons, tanks, and, most likely, aircrafts.

Russia is not at war with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people – today, the Kyiv authorities are an instrument of the collective West. Otherwise, Biden would not have wasted his time coming to Ukraine to negotiate with Zelensky. In reality, the collective West has become a party in the conflict, and Russia must react to this situation.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about so-called provocative actions by the US linked to Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine, claiming that the West (EU/NATO) is involved in the war on the Ukrainian side.

The war began in 2014 with Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea and Russia’s military involvement and support of separatists in Donbas. It was Putin’s personal decision to invade Ukraine and start the largest military conflict in Europe since WWII. Russia’s protracted invasion of Ukraine is unprovoked and unjustified.

Neither the US nor European countries have declared war on Russia or want to escalate the war in Ukraine. The US, the EU and NATO condemn in the strongest possible terms Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which is entirely unjustified and unprovoked.

Western weapons being delivered to Ukraine are to allow this country to repel Russia’s brutal aggression. Peace cannot be achieved by letting an unarmed Ukraine facing a highly militarised Russia that denies its sovereignty.

Article 51 of the UN Charter states the following: “Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defence shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.”

This article – when applied to the Russian aggression against Ukraine in 2022 – gives Ukraine the right to defend its territory, not to Russia to invade it.

Disinfo: US is waging the Ukraine war, so Russia should negotiate with it

The United States and Russia must negotiate. The US is waging this war. There is no Annalena Baerbock, no Scholz, no Macron. They are nobody. Here is the United States, which is the organiser of this war. It is against Russia.

There is a contradiction between the US and Europe, despite all their statements.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that the US is waging a proxy-war against Russia, using Ukraine as a tool, and about alleged peace negotiations. This claim was made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

Russia organised and launched its unprovoked aggression against Ukraine under false pretexts, including the groundless allegations that Ukraine was committing genocide in non-government-controlled areas on the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions.

Disinfo: Poland, just like Ukraine, will fight Russia on behalf of the US

Washington needs to find a new useful idiot like Ukraine, willing to voluntarily stick its head in a meat grinder and fight Moscow without the direct participation of the United States.

Fortunately for Washington, there is Poland.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It also uses the recurring pro-Kremlin claim about the lost sovereignty of European countries to the United States

First, Ukraine is not fighting on behalf of any foreign government or organisation. It is acting in self defence against the Russian invasion as enshrined in the UN Charter Article 51. Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. Ukraine's sovereignty has been violated only as a result of continuous acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since 2014, culminating with a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine starting on 24 February 2022. The West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter, to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

Disinfo: Ukraine will build concentration camps for captured Russians

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine wants to create concentration camps for Russians.

After the liberation of the territories [currently under Russian control], all these people must go through filtration camps and it is necessary to look at who and how, in what crimes they were involved. These people are unreliable, they only have the right to be punished and atone for their stay in the occupied territories.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation portraying Ukraine as a Nazi state. This is part of a wider disinformation campaign aiming to deflect attention away from Russia's actions and justify Putin’s war of aggression in Ukraine.

This disinformation is based on a distorted video of Ukrainian politician Dmytro Korchynsky’s comment from his 2017 interview. Additionally, there is no bill on the official website of the Rada that would provide for the introduction of concentration camps for prisoners of war. Read the full story here.
