Disinfo: Germany is a vassal of the US and still an occupied country


The US rallies against anyone who opposes its policy of aggression. And the vassal governments arround the world join the US to the detriment of their own countries. In Europe, it is primarily Germany, which is still an occupied country and is being set up as a "spearhead" on the European side of the Atlantic against Russia.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about German-American relations. Pro-Kremlin outlets often use the narrative about different countries being under the American thumb - see other examples here.

Germany is an independent and sovereign country and is not dependent on the United States of America. Germany and the US have close partner relations as the two sovereign and independent countries that they are.

For other disinformation cases see: Germany is a vassal of the US; Germany is the executor of US hegemony over Europe; The USA is controlling Europe through occupied Germany; Germany will have to choose between defending Europe's interest and catering to Washington.

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

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

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.
