DISINFO: Inferiority complex behind ex-Soviet states urge to submit under the West
Little Democratic Dictators like Saakashvili and Pashinyan seriously believed that the West were their new “friends” who would support them in their military adventures. They felt emboldened by having the White God Men of Europe give them their grace and let it go to their heads. They were sure that people who cannot find their countries on maps, care very deeply for their destiny and are willing to do anything for them. The vassals think that because the lord will shake their hand that he is their new best buddy.
The power of this inferiority complex in and around the Former Soviet Union cannot be understated and it is a deep seeded part of every culture that speaks a bit of Russian, including the Russians themselves. The idea that submission to the West will breed prosperity is on poorly spelled protest signs on the streets of Moscow just as often as in Kiev during the Maidan.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about lack of sovereignty of Eastern European countries. See examples disinformation about the statehood of Ukraine, or instances when Poland and the Baltic States were labelled as Western vassals.
Georgia and Armenia are sovereign countries that determine their own foreign and internal politics.
Earlier examples of disinformation claims alleging that Georgia is under Western control, and that Armenia is under control of anti-Russian trans-Atlantic forces.
