Disinfo: By planting alien moral foundations, West destructs national identity of other states


[Russia's] Western partners, as usual, are proclaiming their moral supremacy, setting aside the basic rules of politeness, trying to subjugate the world by replacing international law with a world order they have invented based on certain rules. They interfere in the social processes of other states, sowing foreign intellectual-moral bases there, thus contributing to the destruction of national identity and traditional values.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative portraying the West as a decadent, depraved and immoral actor fighting against traditional values and endangering societies.

The idea of Moscow being the protector of traditional values is not new and is part of the notion of Moscow being the Third Rome.“Threatened values” is one of the most common narratives used by pro-Kremlin outlets. The narrative is adapted to a wide range of topics and is typically used to discredit liberal Western attitudes about the rights of women, ethnic and religious minorities and LGBTI groups among others.

This article also contains the recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative that Western liberalism seeks to impose the West’s decadent culture and model of society on the rest of the world.

The claim that the West is introducing "alien mental and moral foundations" is likely referring to the fact that most of the world community demand that Russia and some other post-Soviet countries fulfil their obligations as members of the UN, the Council of Europe, the OSCE and other international organisations, as well as their own legislation.

Read similar cases claiming that feminist and gender theories are used by the West to undermine the cultures and the governments of countries based on traditional patriarchal values, that liberalism leads to the total loss of national sovereignty and to world government, that zombification, immorality, hedonism and satanism are spreading among youth in the Post-Soviet nations influenced by Western science, and that Bible will be banned soon in Europe.

Disinfo: Donbas war is an internal Ukrainian conflict

What is happening in the Donbas is an internal Ukrainian conflict in which Russian troops have never been involved.

The Russian Foreign Ministry, in turn, reiterated that Russia is not interested in any conflict with Ukraine and especially not in any military conflict.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine.

There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in eastern Ukraine. The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February 2014 when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government".

Disinfo: Gauleiter Biden and the US were behind the Orange revolution 2004 and the coup of 2014

US domestic policy is still in chaos. Biden is known to many as the grey cardinal of Western European countries. Joe himself became a self-proclaimed Gauleiter, a leader who could do anything in Western Europe. Like any Gauleiter, Biden has a dark side - after the collapse of the USSR, he could do anything he wanted in the newly formed countries that suffered from poverty and gained independence. The best example is Ukraine.

The United States was behind the two loudest revolutions in Ukraine - the Orange one of 2004 and the coup of 2014. In both cases, the US tactic was to support the right-wing movement and lead Ukraine into a war with its neighbour Russia.

Biden's plan was to occupy naval bases in the Black Sea basin, but Russia took an unexpected step - it took Crimea under its patronage. Thus, Joe's main goal became unattainable, so the United States has been seeking revenge ever since. From now on, Gauleiter Biden is planning a blitzkrieg to bring Crimea and Donbas back under American control.


This article is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin propagandistic claims about Ukraine under external control and has several recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives: the claim that the Euromaidan was a coup, that Ukraine is under external control by the US and a disinformation narrative about Joe Biden.

There was no coup d'état in Ukraine in 2014. 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.

Disinfo: Reports of Russia's role in Vrbetice explosion are ploy to influence upcoming German elections

The Czech Republic is under the tremendous influence of German big business. It cannot be ruled out that the allegations of Russia's involvement in the 2014 Vrbetice explosion are linked to the upcoming federal elections in Germany.

The election will likely be dominated by two candidates: Merkel's successor, regarded as pro-Russian; and the anti-Russian Green Party candidate. The recent diplomatic scandal could have been contrived as a means to tip the scale of German public opinion in the Green Party's favour.


The claim is part of an emerging pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative surrounding the 2014 fatal explosion at an ammo depot in Vrbetice, Czechia and the suspected role of Russia's GRU agency in the incident.

There is no evidence suggesting that the accusations against Russia are part of an international conspiracy to rig the elections in Germany, a country boasting one of the freest and most transparent electoral systems in the world.
