Disinfo: Kyiv regime seeks to divert attention from its course of destroying the Minsk agreements


The Kyiv regime seeks to divert attention from its course of destroying Minsk agreements, whipping up "all kinds of horror stories" about the alleged Russian threat. The Ukrainian authorities and President Zelenskyy personally have taken a course to undermine the Minsk agreements and sabotage everything that they have pledged to fulfil. At the same time, they use the open connivance of their patrons in Berlin, Paris and Brussels. President of Ukraine Zelenskyy is not averse to provoking any incidents in Donbas with the expectation of assistance from the West.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative about Minsk agreements, claiming that Ukraine is destroying agreements, and its position is the only obstacle on the way to the peace process in Donbas. The article also presents Ukraine as a non-sovereign country, a puppet of the Western countries.

The main impediment to a peace settlement in Donbas is Russia’s and its proxies’ deliberate unwillingness to implement the Minsk agreements. These documents, signed by representatives of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Ukraine, Russia and leaders of the illegal separatist entities (DNR and LNR), provide, among other things, for a comprehensive ceasefire and withdrawal of foreign troops from Ukraine. Kyiv announced a truce in July 2020, but the Moscow-backed separatists have been violating it virtually every day.

Kyiv has repeatedly stated that it is not interested in escalation and that it prefers a peaceful solution. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that the Minsk agreements are the only option to end the war in Donbas.

Disinfo: The Anglo-Saxons fooled Georgia into starting a war with Russia

The Anglo-Saxons fooled Georgia and made Saakashvili start a war with Russia. As a result, Georgia has de jure lost territories that it de facto had already lost before.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russia's role in the Russo-Georgian War.

Georgia is a sovereign country that was attacked by Russia in 2008. Many international organisations condemned the further occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, see e.g. the CSCE statement here, the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia here and the European Parliament's declaration.

Disinfo: Poland needs to restore balance in relations with Belarus to solve migration crisis

The only reasonable proposal [to solve the migration crisis] is to try to take preventive measures that would completely eliminate this unpleasant picture of people wandering on the Polish-Belarusian border. This cannot be done without restoring the balance in relations with Minsk.


Recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets about the migration situation on the EU-Belarus borders.

The claim that Poland does not want to solve the migration crisis on the border with Belarus through diplomatic tools is ungrounded. The Polish Government stays in contact with Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya as she is perceived as a legitimate representative of the Belarusian society (unlike Alexander Lukashenka, who has lost all the political legitimacy).

Disinfo: Poland inspired the border crisis with Belarus in order to fight the Nord Stream 2

The border crisis [with Belarus] was manually created by the ruling team of Kaczyński, Duda and Morawiecki. The first goal of this crisis is the consolidation of the PiS electorate in a situation of the falling party ratings and recent protests.

The second goal in the inspiration of the border crisis is to underline the importance of Poland as a Western and American outpost in Eastern Europe. The border crisis is important for the Polish authorities also in the context of the failure of the large-scale propaganda and political activities aimed at disrupting the construction of the Nord Stream 2. The Polish authorities were the vanguard of the “crusade” against this gas pipeline, which ended in disaster. Today, they need to present some “success story” [in terms of the Nord Stream 2].


Recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets about the migration crisis on the EU-Belarus borders.

The claim that Poland “manually created” the migration crisis in order to fight with the Nord Stream 2 and reach its domestic and international goals is ungrounded.
