Disinfo: Nazi West treats migrants as cattle


In the European Union, migrants are treated like cattle, they are beaten and deprived of normal human conditions, just like once upon a time prisoners of war were treated in the concentration camps.

The Belarusian society is shocked by such actions, which remind everyone of the Nazi atrocities during the Great Patriotic War in the territory of Belarus. The method of the Lithuanian punishers is simple - beatings, dog-baiting of women and children, torture. Admittedly, this is only the beginning of the bloody massacre of refugees. Migrants have become a mirror of the fascist democracy of the West and revealed the true face of the Nazi intentions of the collective West.


Recurring disinformation narrative about Nazi/Fascist West, in this case in the context of migration crisis at Lithuanian-Belarusian border.

In July and August 2021, Lithuania has faced unprecedented migration crisis with sharp increase of arrivals of migrants and asylum seekers coming from the Middle East and Africa and entering Lithuania via the border with Belarus.

Lithuania officially linked the influx of migrants to the actions of Belarusian authorities. The minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Gabrielius Landsbergis noted that “Lukashenko seeks to weaponise migration to weaken our resolve for sanctions”.

On her visit to Lithuania Commissioner Ylva Johansson stressed that the situation at Lithuanian-Belarusian border was an act of agression from the Lukashenka regime.

The European Union has supported Lithuania in its efforts to protect the external EU border and ensure adequate conditions for people crossing the border. Read more here.

Disinfo: Eastern Partnership is a leash to control participating countries

The European Union will not destroy the Eastern Partnership, because this partnership represents for the EU an anti-Russian format and a leash that it throws around the neck of Eastern European countries, thus controlling them.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the EU's Eastern Partnership, presenting it as an anti-Russian structure.

The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a joint policy initiative, based on voluntary participation, which aims to deepen and strengthen relations between the European Union (EU), its Member States and its six Eastern neighbours: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, as it is mentioned on the official website. It was released on May 7, 2009, by the Joint Declaration of the Prague Eastern Partnership Summit. There is no mention of Russia in the policy's stated goals. On 26 June 2021, Belarus took a voluntary decision suspending its participation in the EaP, after the EU imposed sanctions on Lukashenka's government for the presure on its own polulation, human rights violations and for the forcing down of the Ryanair airplane with Roman Pratasevich.

Disinfo: Georgia’s military adventure was encouraged by Western partners in 2008

Russia advocates the continuation of consultations in Geneva between Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia to reach "a legal formula for their mutual obligations regarding the non-use of force and the resolution of other urgent issues."

This should be a reliable guarantee that Georgia does not repeat military adventures, which were directly or indirectly encouraged by some Western partners in 2008.

The criminal acts committed by the regime of ex-President Mikheil Saakashvili, such as the bombing of sleeping Tskhinvali, should not be repeated.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative trying to deny any role for Russia in the Russo-Georgian war, portraying it as a peacemaker and blaming Georgia and its political leadership, as well as, the West for the war which resulted in the further occupation of South Ossetia and Abkhazia by additional military forces from Russia timed around the 13th anniversary of the conflict.

Georgia is a sovereign country 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: The “Original Douma Report” doesn't indicate a chemical attack in Syria

The politicisation that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is suffering from has kept it far from the technical nature of its work and made it lose a large part of its credibility. Instead of being a faithful guardian of the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, it has turned into a tool in the hands of some countries to target a member country of the Convention.

The original report of the investigation into the "Douma incident" confirms that no evidence was found indicating a chemical attack there and that attempts to discredit it will not succeed in restoring the credibility of the fact-finding mission's reports.


Recurring disinformation narratives deflecting blame for chemical attacks from the Assad regime; aiming to discredit the OPCW. The article also attacks the OPCW's independence and integrity; lending credence to the claim that the 2018 Douma chemical attack didn’t happen.

The OPCW's supposed “original report”, trying to paint an image of suppressing the truth about the Douma incident, is a standard talking point in reporting on Syria. See e.g. here, here, here, and here for our previous debunking of this narrative.
