Europe is pretending that Russians are subhuman

Summary of Disinformation

We [Russia] saved humanity [from Nazism during World War II] and humanity as a matter of fact owes us, although we do not demand a debt from it, but it owes us. And because of this, any things that Europe is doing today – at the Olympics, in Ukraine, anywhere, the sanctions. Here, given this debt, it would be difficult for them [to recognize Russia’s leading role in the victory over Nazism]. Now, this debt must be wiped, it is necessary to grade and minimise it somehow because then it will be easier for them to act meanly and introduce double standards, it will be easier to pretend that we are subhuman.

Disproof

There is no solid evidence that EU leaders refuse to recognize the important role of the Soviet Russia in defeating Nazi Germany or the huge losses of the USSR during WW2. The accusation against EU leaders is based on the statement by Mairead McGuinness, the vice-president of the European Parliament. According to the Russian translation showed by Vremya Pokazhet, she stated in Brussels on January 24, 2018, that the Nazi death camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau were liberated by the "allied forces" [time code: 8:18]. According to Artem Scheinin, the host of the show on Pervyi Kanal, Mairead McGuinness must say: "liberated by the Soviet army" and this " slip of the tongue" was made by her on purpose to distort history
