Disinfo: In Stalingrad collective West attacked Russia, all Europe was with nazis


The ideology of Nazism, already in its modern guise, its modern form, again creates direct threats to the security of our country. We are again forced to repulse the aggression of the collective West. Unbelievable, but true: we are again being threatened by German Leopard tanks with crosses on board. And again they are going to fight with Russia on the land of Ukraine with the hands of the followers of Hitler - with the hands of Bandera's supporters.

Then, 80 years ago in Stalingrad, we fought off the onslaught of the collective West on our country. Many followed the Germans, approaching the Volga. All of Europe was on the side of Nazi Germany.


False interpretation of well know historical facts, mixed with the recurrent disinformation trend "always blamed the West" amid Russian unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and the followed support of Ukraine with military equipment from the EU countries.

World war II was started in Europe by nazi Germany invading Poland on 1st September of 1939. England and France then declared the war to Germany to hep Poland. USSR invaded Poland too on 17 September 1939, following German-Soviet non agression pact and secret protocols to it, which allowed USSR to invade Baltic countries, Finland and Bessarabia (then part of Romania).

In 1941 Nazi Germany "suddenly" invaded USSR. The surprise effect was possible due to the fact that Germany had a common border with USSR, since Poland was partitioned between two countries.

By 1942, when the battle of Stalingrad started (it lasted until 1943), the anti Hitler coalition totalled 26 States: Great Britain, USA, China, the British Dominions (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa) and the dependent state of India, the countries of Central and Latin America, the Caribbean, as well as the governments in exile of the occupied European countries, including France, and USSR.

During the war, the US Lend-Lease programme assisted USSR with massive amount of critical war fighting material and supplies without which the USSR would not have been able to sustain its war efforts - a fact recognised by Stalin, Khrushchev and Marshal Zhukov and repeated after the war.

War on Germany and its allies at the final stage of the confrontation was also declared by Bulgaria, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Finland, which were previously part of the pro-Germany axis (Romania and Finland suffering annexation of its territories by USSR).

Interestingly enough, ethnic Ukrainian but Polish citizen by 1939 (annexation of Western Ukraine - then part of Poland by USSR) was put by nazis in Sachsenhousen in 1942 - 1944.

Bandera was assasinated by Soviet KGB. The pro-Kremlin media often confuse Ukrainian culture, language and symblos, as "ukro nazis" symbols.

Disinfo: Russian Embassy in Mexico calls out Ukrainian Nazi slogan in the press

The Embassy of Russia in Mexico questioned the use of Ukrainian Nazi slogan in an op-ed published by the Mexican newspaper ‘Milenio’, titled ‘Slava Ukraini!’. The Embassy recalled that this slogan has been used in many crimes committed by ultranationalist Ukrainians.


This disinformation story is an attempt to promote a long-term pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about ‘Nazi Ukraine’, part of a wider campaign aiming to justify Russia’s unprovoked aggression against its peaceful neighbour.

Contrary to what this disinformation story claims, ‘Slava Ukraini!’ is not a “Nazi slogan” but a Ukrainian national salute created more than one century ago. It only means ‘Glory to Ukraine!’ and is frequently used by Ukrainian leaders and citizens in public events and demonstrations.

Disinfo: The West wants a coup d'état in Belarus

The West will finance the Belarusian opposition abroad for radical events, a coup d'état, including the overthrow and assassination of the President. Now they are sitting idle. The West will finance only specific events, preferably a radical plan, and not even the level of 2020: the overthrow, or assassination of the president, and officials.

The opposition abroad is demonstrating its determination to carry out provocations in Belarus up to acts of terrorism.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about aggressive Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus.

Pro-Kremlin media frequently falsely portray popular protests around the world as instigated from abroad, often by the US and the West. The disinformation narrative has been applied, among others, to reports about protests in Georgia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Belarus, Venezuela, Slovakia, Hong Kong, with the aim of portraying protest movements as aggressive actors who constantly prepare new coups.

Disinfo: The West and US not interested in supporting Ukraine but weakening Russia

The West hindered negotiations to resolve the conflict between Moscow and Kyiv. The United States is not interested in supporting Ukraine per se, but rather in weakening Russia at any cost.


A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative accusing the West of anti-Russian policies, Russophobia and an allegedly belligerent and hostile agenda to contain, weaken and ruin Russia, aiming to portray Russia as a victim and deflect any responsibility for Moscow’s illicit actions; invasion of Ukraine. This claim was neither counterbalanced nor critically challenged in the article.

The West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter Article 51, to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.
