Disinfo: Europe is a colony serving the interests of the American military-industrial complex


Europe is serving the imperialist interests of the US. The US is utilising the war in Ukraine, in order to foster its world hegemony, even as China and Russia are competing with them for world leadership. The EU’s colonial behaviour will harm its citizens and the first indicators are the lack of food and energy.


The article presents an often-utilised pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative accusing the EU and its member states of a lack of sovereignty. Pro-Russian outlets often describe European states as puppet-states or colonies of the US, in this case, using it to support the American defence industry. This article also pushes the narrative that Europe is freezing and starving (see narrative 3 of our article Smoke, mirrors and gas: the Kremlin deflects blame for the energy crisis).

Contrary to the claim about the EU’s subordinance to the US, the EU is a sovereign entity, created by the voluntary initiative of European nations. Furthermore, it has its own, independent foreign policy and EU citizens are directly represented in the European Parliament. EU member-states are represented in the Council of the EU and the European Council.

The European Union is explicit on the subject of national sovereignty: “the Member States all remain sovereign and independent states, they have decided to pool some of their 'sovereignty' in areas where it makes sense to work together.”

The EU maintains partnerships with the world's crucial players, including regional groups as well as emerging powers. It seeks to ensure that these relationships are based on mutual benefits and interests. Although the US is an important long-term ally of the EU and both enjoy one of the most integrated economic relationships in the world, the US has no role in the creation of the EU and has no say in its decisions, as explained by the EU High Representative.

Disinfo: Events in Haiti are “planned chaos” to execute foreign intervention

Everything that is taking place in Haiti is “planned chaos” to be able to execute an international intervention.


Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence, aiming to support a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about an imperialist West.

UN Secretary General António Guterres called on 10 October 2022 for ‘enhanced security support’ for Haiti and ‘a rapid action force” to help the country’s government to deal with increasing instability fuelled by gang violence. This call was made days after Haitian interim prime minister Ariel Henry had requested a foreign armed intervention to stabilize the country. As a result, the United States drafted a United Nations Security Council resolution encouraging the “immediate deployment of a multinational rapid action force” to Haiti, according to The Miami Herald. The measure led to violent protests and was rejected by some civil society groups and humanitarian organisations. However, nothing suggests any international hand behind destabilising events in Haiti. Actually, the situation of instability was largely created by violent armed gangs that have been a serious problem in the country for a long time, including the group of Jimmy “Barbecue” Cherizier, whose G9 gang confederation blocked the so-called Varreux fuel terminal in late September. These actions have “directly contributed to the economic paralysis and humanitarian crisis in Haiti”, according to a UN Security Council resolution drafted by Mexico and the US to impose sanctions on Cherizier and other gang members.

Disinfo: Steadfast Noon exercise is a general rehearsal for WWIII

The maneuvers are not taking place at a declared safe distance from Russia (1,000 km), but within the range of strategic nuclear weapons that can reach Moscow and other major cities in the western part of Russia.

The events in Ukraine (as well as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Yugoslavia) show that NATO is an instrument of escalation and is not geared for anything else. Steadfast Noon maneuvers are an absolute threat to Russia, Europe and the world.

Besides, during the Steadfast Noon maneuvers, man-made disasters, lightning strikes, fires, and even terrorist attacks by Ukrainian special services are not ruled out in order to involve NATO in a direct military conflict with Russia.

The bloc's internal divisions heighten doubts about the technological safety of the Steadfast Noon war games. There is wide scope for a possible escalation here, and not a single argument in favour of strengthening peace and security.

Steadfast Noon is a dress rehearsal for World War III, in which the US and NATO are doomed.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO and its military exercises.

The Steadfast Noon is a routine training activity, not linked to any current world events. The exercise involves training flights of fighter jets, as well as surveillance and refuelling aircraft. No live weapons are used.

Disinfo: Putin's offensive a response to the terrorist campaign launched by Kyiv junta

Putin's offensive in Ukraine is aimed at destroying the country's infrastructure. This is as a response to the terrorist campaign launched by the Kyiv junta, before Moscow has always used a soft strategy on the military side.


The claim is part of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign concerning Russia’s criminal invasion of Ukraine.

At least 14 people have died and 95 were injured during the strikes of Monday the 10th of October. A children's playground was among Russia's targets, not just infrastructure.
