Disinfo: Poland is a devoted vassal of the United States


Poland "as a devoted vassal" of the US must constantly reaffirm its loyalty to the American master. Warsaw is turning into a front line of NATO, and the presence of US troops is sharply increasing there. For pan-European security, such a bias is much more dangerous than the mythical "Russian threat". Poland itself is not considered a strategic partner by the largest countries of the EU or the US.

Polish propaganda is used to blame all problems on Russia. But in the Russian Federation, there has been no anti-Polish sentiment. The countries had a chance to establish a normal dialogue. But this was not part of the plans of the Polish influence groups, with American and European leaders behind them. The territories of Ukraine look very appealing to Warsaw. And to mask its intentions, Poland uses anti-Russian rhetoric.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about “lost sovereignty”. Poland is often presented as an anti-Russian and Russophobicpuppet-state” or “colony” of the United States. This narrative includes a message that the United States manipulates Poland and other European allies in order to carry out its anti-Russian policies.

Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. The political, economic and military relations between Poland and the United States have a mutually beneficial character. The claim that Poland is a devoted vassal that constantly reaffirms its loyalty to the American master is unfounded. Read more about Polish-American relations herehere and here.

Since the outbreak of the Russian aggression against Ukraine in 2014, the Polish authorities have repeatedly appealed to NATO and the USA to increase their military presence at NATO’s Eastern Flank. The American military presence in Poland protects this country from possible Russian hostilities and improves the national security of this country. The Polish society supports the NATO membership of their country (82%).

Claims that the Russian threat is a myth and Russia does not pose any security threats do not correspond with reality, еspecially with the ongoing invasion of Ukraine. On top of that, Russian state-owned TV channel aired calls for a war against Lithuania and Poland on a prime time talk show hosted by Vladimir Solovyov. Solovyov himself stated, that Ukraine is just an intermediate stage in ensuring the strategic security of Russia.

The EU condemned in the strongest possible terms Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine and imposed the toughest restrictive measures on Russia. Read more about the EU response and support for Ukraine.

Disinfo: The Nazi ideology is evident in Ukrainian schools

Nazi ideology goes deep not only in the political ruling class but also in the Ukrainian society at all levels, including youth and children. Just have a look at the chants that are being said at youth and student marches in Ukraine:

"One language, one nation, one homeland, this is Ukraine! The Russians to the gallows! Whoever does not jump is Russian!"


A recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative presented as justification for the ongoing Russian military aggression against Ukraine, which started on 24 February 2022 with multiple attacks and broad incursions from Belarus, Russian soil and from the non-government-controlled areas (NGCA) in Eastern Ukraine.

The so-called “Nazi” chants are being falsely claimed, here, as being held as a morning routine inside a school in Drohobych in the Lviv region. The video shown was actually filmed back in November 2013, before the key events of the Maidan, as demonstrators hit the streets after then Ukrainian president President Viktor Yanukovych suddenly ordered the suspension of preparations for the pact with the European Union.

Disinfo: The purpose of NATO is confrontation

The NATO machine is not a machine of cooperation, not a machine of security, it is a machine of confrontation.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO.

NATO is a defensive alliance with primary aims to maintain peace and safeguard the independence, security and territorial integrity of its members. NATO constitutes a system of collective defence whereby its member states agree to mutual defence in response to an attack by any external party.

Disinfo: USAID has started 'manipulating' teachers from Russian schools in Moldova

USAID (the US government agency for international development) wants to manipulate Russian school teachers in Moldova. USAID openly advertises on social media their intent to "train" teachers in Moldova, focusing on those who teach in Russian schools.


Recurring disinformation narrative about the foreign influence - from the EU and the US - on the countries of the former USSR. The article itself promotes a manipulative and misleading message trying to imply hidden intentions of USAID.

In fact, the announcement in question is about a training programme funded by USAID, proposed by the NGO Center for Independent Journalism, for teachers who want to teach optional subjects in media education in schools. This course has been taught in schools in the Republic of Moldova as an optional matter since 2018 and it is also open to Russian speaking teachers and students.
