Disinfo: Poland and Nazi Germany were in close alliance


The alliance relations between Poland and Nazi Germany were so close that Hitler ordered the organization of a religious service in Berlin after Pilsudski’s death, and Hitler was personally present at that service.


This message is a recurring pro-Kremlin historical revisionist narrative and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact by stating that Poland was a Nazi ally, so it should blame itself. While it is true that Hitler organized a religious service after Piłsudski's death, and while it is also true that the latter's rule was authoritarian, none of this is evidence that there was an alliance between Poland and Nazi Germany.

Before WWII, Poland had tense political relations with Nazi Germany, which expressed open territorial claims to Poland (revision of the status of the Free City of Danzig and control over the “Polish Corridor”). Despite intense political pressure from Hitler, Poland consistently refused to become part of the Nazi block.

After Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933, Piłsudski was only compelled to accept Hitler’s suggestion of a 10-year German-Polish non-aggression agreement signed in 1934. To show that this was not a sign of alliance with Hitler, Poland prolonged the existing non-aggression treaty with the Soviet Union until December 31, 1945. Hitler repeatedly sought a German-Polish alliance against the Soviet Union, but Piłsudski had consistently denied such offer; he also declined to meet with Hitler. Piłsudski's objective was to gain time, believing that Poland should be ready to fight Nazi Germany when the necessity arose. Those were the last instructions he gave to his confidants before his death in 1935. Piłsudski was also renowned for his tolerance towards religious minorities, particularly towards the Jews.

Read similar examples of the Russian historical revisionism concerning Poland - Poland posed a military threat to the USSR in 1938-1939, Nazi Germany considered Poland its best ally, If Poland realized a rational policy in 1939, Moscow would have had a different approach towards it and Poland re-writes the history of the Warsaw uprising accusing the USSR of its failure.

Coronavirus: A Wuhan laboratory sponsored by Soros, virus affects only Mongoloid race

There is a biolaboratory in Wuhan – until recently, nothing was known about it. Its address is Gaoxin, three sixes – the number mentioned in the Bible, under which the name of the beast of the Apocalypse is hidden. But it’s even more symbolic that it exists thanks to the money of the famous banker George Soros, who shares the globalist ideas of Bill Gates. This could be part of a cunning plan.

The coronavirus affects only the representatives of the Mongoloid race, which is very suspicious and raises questions.


Conspiracy theory. This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about the coronavirus.

Although the laboratory WuXi AppTec really exists and is located in Wuhan, 666 Gaoxin Road East Lake, its objective is described as "small molecule drug discovery and research services". Additionally, there is no proof that Soros would be linked to the coronavirus.

Moscow has not intervened in the European Union or other countries

Moscow has not intervened and will not interfere in elections and other internal political processes in the European Union. There is no evidence that Russia has interfered in the the electoral processes of other countries.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative denying Moscow's interference in Western democratic processes.

The independent research, media investigations and parliamentary inquiries point out to evidence linking Russian state actors with interference in various electoral processes, including the Brexit vote, in the 2017 French Presidential elections, in the 2017 German Parliamentary elections, in the 2016 constitutional referendum in Italy and in the Dutch referendum on the EU’s Association Agreement with Ukraine.

The coronavirus is part of a US war against Russia and China

The coronavirus is part of the American biological war against Russia and China. Washington would benefit from “sick” and economically weakened competitors.

The US is conducting operations as part of a biological warfare against the entire planet.


Conspiracy theory. This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about the China coronavirus.

In response to the outbreak of the corona virus the Chinese authorities have placed more than a dozen cities under quarantine. The World Health Organisation is working with Chinese authorities and global experts to learn more about the virus. The virus "2019-nCoV” comes from a family of viruses that include the common cold, and viruses such as SARS and MERS. There is no evidence to suggest it was developed artificially as a biological weapon.
