DISINFO: Germany is not truly sovereign and is strictly overseen by the US


Anti-Russian policy is the standard, both for the United States and its followers, including Germany. Despite all the independence and sovereignty that this country [Germany] appears to have, German politicians are subject to strict oversight by Washington. Consequently, they bark in the desired direction [by the US].


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the “lost sovereignty” of European countries. European countries are often presented as a “vassals" of the United States. This narrative includes a message that the US manipulates its European allies in order to carry out anti-Russian policies.

See similar disinformation cases alleging that Ukraine is ruled by foreigners, the Baltic states are not really countries, and the EU is directed by Washington.
