Disinfo: Deutsche Welle is the source of NATO propaganda


The fact that the US State Department supports Deutsche Welle shows that this media is a part of NATO propaganda.


The disinformation narrative is linked to the decision of the Russian authorities to ban a public international broadcaster Deutsche Welle and close its office in Moscow.

Deutsche Welle is based in Germany and is, since many years, an internationally respectable global media outlet, providing journalistic content in 32 languages, including Russian.

According to the EU, the decision of the Russian authorities was unacceptable, and lacking any justification.

The spokesperson of the US State Department also expressed solidarity with Deutsche Welle.

The decision of the Russian authorities came after the German regulator banned the Russian state-controlled broadcaster RT DE from operating in Germany due to the absence of a valid licence. In contrast, Deutsche Welle has been operating in Russia with all the necessary licences and credentials.

That is why rather than being a retaliatory move, the ban imposed on Deutsche Welle illustrates continuous violations of media freedom and disregard for independence of the media by the Russian authorities.

Disinformation related to the migration situation at the EU - Belarus border.

In 2021, LithuaniaPoland and Latvia faced an influx of irregular migrants arriving via Belarus. Earlier, Belarus had terminated cooperation with the EU to stem illegal migration.

Disinfo: Biden wants to destroy the Ukrainian state to prevent investigation on his son

Boris Johnson is facing impeachment, so he claims that we appear on the verge of a war with Russia. It is a way to solve an internal problem using external threats. It is the with Biden, who may want the Ukrainian state to disappear. After the mid-term Congressional elections in November, the Republicans may investigate the causes of the Ukrainian coup and the participation of Biden’s son in corruption. If the Ukrainian state is destroyed, it will be impossible to carry out this investigation.


Recurring disinformation narrative about “hostile” American plans towards Ukraine.

These claims are part of an ongoing disinformation campaign about Russia’s military buildup on the border with Ukraine. By accusing the US and the UK of being the driving force behind the escalation of tensions, this disinformation story aims to deny any Russian responsibility for the situation.

Disinfo: Removal of YouTube accounts from LNR and DNR violates freedom of information

The recent removal by some social media platforms of accounts run by Moscow-backed territories in Eastern Ukraine is a violation of the UN-backed right for freedom of information.


This is an unsubstantiated claim.

In reality, these accounts are disseminating disinformation, spreading false claims and propagating violence against Ukraine. Some of the blocked accounts are run by information facilities and police forces in the Moscow-backed territories of Donetsk and Luhansk Regions. This decision has nothing to do with clamping down on the right for freedom of information. YouTube terminated them for violating its Community Guidelines, which ban, among other things, hate speech.
