Disinfo: Global élite instigate ethnic conflicts to save their decadent hegemony


The global liberal financial élite is planning ethnic conflicts not only in Ukraine and Russia but also in Germany, France, Eastern Europe to save their decadent hegemony by trying and divide Europe.

Liberals, the global financial oligarchy and Atlanticists are attempting to generate hostility between Russia and Europe as well as trying to save their shaky dominance by promoting ethnic conflict


Conspiracy theory. The article provides no evidence to support its claims. The article repeats a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that seeks to discredit liberal democracies claiming that the latter are in reality systems ruled by “globalist elites” and “shadow governments” that subjugate and manipulate the masses by disintegrating communities, deepening ethnic divisions in order to divide European societies.

The article’s message about the alleged subservience of Western élites to “international financiers” is also consistent with recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about all-powerful global élites or secret élites ruling the world and controlling leaders.

War in Ukraine is not an ethnic conflict caused by Western global elite but a struggle between Russia and Ukraine for Ukraine’s future – either as an authoritarian, corrupt state controlled by Russia, or as an independent state building European standards of democratic governance and rule of law. There has been no ethnic conflict between Russians and Ukrainians in recent history and there was none involved in the Maidan unrest from November 2013, which was a protest against corruption and bad government. 

Read similar cases claiming that contemporary liberalism is becoming totalitarian and views non-liberals as enemies to be killed and destroyed and that a weakened global liberal elite stages Russophobic events throughout the world.

Disinfo: Ukrainians are bewitched and do not know what they are doing

The majority of Russians see that Russia is not facing Ukraine, but the West, which is fighting Russia with the hands of the Ukrainians.

In Russia we do not observe any hatred towards Ukrainians, because we see them as victims, in the first place, who have been manipulated and maliciously deceived. They are "bewitched", and they themselves do not know what they are doing.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aimed at portraying Ukraine as a non-independent state that is under direct foreign control.

Since 16 July 1990, when it adopted the Declaration of State Sovereignty, Ukraine has been an independent and sovereign state. It has democratically elected state institutions, including the Parliament and a President, who take all the decisions regarding state governance. As a sovereign state, it decides its own international political orientation freely.

Disinfo: IAEA delegation, like that of the OSCE, will pass on intelligence to the Ukrainian army

It can be assumed that the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] delegation includes professional members of intelligence services, including from Poland and Lithuania, who have no nuclear power plants, and yet they have their own specialists on the team.

Let us remember that the Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) observers are the ones who "observed" the armistice in Donbas. As it turned out, half of them were officers in Western intelligence services, and they passed the information to the Ukrainian army.


Multiple claims made with no evidence. The claim that members of the IAEA Support and Assistance Mission to Zaporizhzhya (ISAMZ) are intelligence officers who will pass information to the Ukrainian army is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin claim attempting to discredit independent international organisations, especially those who monitor the implementation and respect of international treaties and instruments such as the OSCE, the OPCW, and now the IAEA.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is an independent organisation of the UN family and includes 175 member states. Russia itself is a founding member of the IAEA as well as one of the earliest ratifiers of its Statute, and remains a member state until this day. It is also worth mentioning that Russia committed to facilitate the IAEA visit; a lack of facilitation from the Russian side, as an occupying force of the plant and the surrounding region, would make the visit of the IAEA delegation impossible.

Disinfo: Ukraine bombed the meeting place of the IAEA mission and Zaporizhzhia NPP

Ukrainian Armed Forces bombed the meeting place of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) mission and the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukraine attacking the Zaporizhzhia power plant. The claim was neither counterbalanced nor critically challenged in the article.

No evidence was provided to back the claim that Ukraine is shelling the Zaporizhzhia power plant and the the meeting place of the IAEA mission. In fact, there has been an increasing number of reports that Russia uses the nuclear site as a so-called “sheltered” artillery park, "using the facilities to fire on Ukrainian positions in the belief that Ukraine would not fire back and risk a nuclear accident".
