On 22 June 1941 the whole Europe attacked the Soviet Union

Summary of Disinformation

A crusade against Stalin. On 22 June 1941 the whole Europe attacked the Soviet Union. Not only German officers were among those who were captures by the Soviet army but also Frenchmen, Spaniards, Italians, Finns, Poles, Austrians, Dutch, and even Norwegians. Based on this Stalin concluded that not only German Wehrmacht, but the whole Europe attacked the Soviet Union. 

Disproof

In the World War II,the belligerents were the Axis powers—Germany, Italy, and Japan—and the Allies—France, Great Britain, the United States, the Soviet Union, and, to a lesser extent, China. On June 22 in 1941, Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union, regardless of the nationality of the soldiers.

Logical fallacies and historical revisionism are repeatedly used in pro-Kremlin disinformation. https://medium.com/dfrlab/logical-fallacies-fuel-kremlin-disinfo-e4185bb455e6 euvsdisinfo.eu/self-help-via-pro-kremlin-disinformation/, euvsdisinfo.eu/russia-as-a-victim-of-western-aggression/,
