A dying EU promotes an anti-Russian, anti-democratic agenda

The European Union is a stinking corpse, which poisons the political and moral atmosphere of Europe. Actual EU policies do not have anything to do with real democracy. Old EU members play a role of the masters of democracy and human rights, whereas new EU member states such as Poland and the Baltics do the dirty work by promoting EU’s and NATO’s disintegration and an anti-Russian agenda to the East. Political regimes in new EU Member States consciously create confrontations and escalate the situation along the whole perimeter of the Eastern Slavic civilisation.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives on the EU's moral decay and Western belligerence.

EU prepares Maidan in Belarus

Aware of ongoing disagreements, the EU has intensified its efforts to bring even larger discord in Russia-Belarus relations by continuing to provide financial assistance to Belarus’ civil society. The EU will use the same methods of colour revolutions that it has already applied in many other Eurasian countries. Support to the youth, scientific community and NGOs as well as nationalists will remain the EU priority. The information war is another important element to control zombie Belarusians and make them organise a Maidan.


EU assistance to Belarus aims at improving the quality of life of Belarusian citizens in a tangible and visible manner, by strengthening its economy, governance, connectivity and society. Find out more about the EU assistance to Belarus here.

This disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in EU neighbourhood and to arrange 'Belarusian Maidan'. Examples of earlier disinformation with a similar narrative here and here.

Biased research on conspiracy theories gives special credits to Macron voters

Authors of the report “Investigation into the conspiracy theories – Wave 2” by Conspiracy Watch explain that 21% of the French voters believe “five or more conspiracy theories”. According to the report, Macron’s voter were less prone to believing conspiracy theories than those of his opposition in the Presidential elections.
But Emmanuel Macron has spoken about “foreign powers”, pointing in a more or less explicit manner to RT and Russia as forces behind the yellow vest protests.
Conspiracy Watch seem to consider certain conspiracy theories more acceptable than others?

Nothing in this report supports the claim that the pollster is biased towards Emmanuel Macron and his voters. All details can be found in the report "Investigation into the conspiracy theories - Wave 2".
