DISINFO: By arming Ukraine, the US and the UK want to push Russia against Europe


By arming Ukraine the US and the UK want to push Russia against Europe.

This is an Anglo-Saxon thing, with the active support of the Germans and Poles, and the Baltic states, they really want to make this war real and push Russia against the European countries.

Ukraine is literally being held back from any constructive steps, not just being pumped up with weapons, but being forced to use these weapons more and more riskily.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets accusing the US and the UK of aggravating the situation in Ukraine, and disrupting peace efforts. It promotes a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about lost sovereignty / external control, specifically about the EU's dependence on the US and so-called "Anglo-Saxons".

Multiple countries around the world support Ukraine's defense against Russia' military aggression with deliveries of weapons, ammunition and non-lethal military equipment, including multiple NATO alliesAustralia,Japan, and others.

Many also countries are supporting Ukraine with military, political and humanitarian aid and are simultaneously trying to find a diplomatic solution to the war against Ukraine

Western leaders have been continuously calling for talks and a peaceful solution to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine, but Moscow has been ignoring these efforts. The West is not interested in the continuation of the war at the heart of Europe. And the West is not interested in war with Russia or Russians.

Sovereign decisions of the European nations and the EU regarding their domestic and foreign policies are often presented in pro-Kremlin media as an "Anglo-Saxon provocation". The term “Anglo-Saxons” in such cases normally stands for the US and UK and often means “evil”, “belligerent” and “morally corrupt” Westerners, as explained in our earlier analysis.
