Europe helped Hitler to come to power and allowed him to attack Russia

Summary

The Western European countries helped Hitler to come to power. And he said to them: I will go to attack Russia! And they let him form the armed forces.

 

Disproof

Between the years 1939 and 1941, it was Soviet Russia who was Nazi Germany's ally - the two countries simultaneously invading Poland. Later during WWII, Soviet Russia, the UK, the US and many other countries were the allies in an anti-Hitler coalition.

West’s “espionage conspiracy” failed

West’s espionage conspiracy failed. The attempt of Western countries to unite against Russia, while simultaneously accusing it of secret illegal activities, does not make sense – writes The New Yorker.

Disproof

The original article say nothing about a "Western conspiracy". One of the respondents merely describes the reaction of the West as not sufficient to change Russia's aggressive behaviour: "Russia is on a clear course of more aggressive behavior toward the West. Strong statements and narrow sanctions won’t change that," said Alina Polyakova from the Brookings Institute to the New Yorker.

Recurring narrative about conspiracies in the pro-Kremlin media. The Western countries recently reacted to Russia's illegal activities such as: annexation of Crimea, Skripal's poisoning and OPCW targeting.
