Disinfo: Poland spreads monstrous lies about the Soviet liberation of this country


The Polish claim that the USSR did not bring this country freedom in 1945 is a lie, a monstrous lie - many citizens of the Soviet Union died liberating Poland. It is another attempt to continue fooling the young Polish generation, feeding them this lie and provoking hatred towards the Russians.


This message is an example of Russian historical revisionism, portraying the USSR as the peacemaker and liberator of Poland. It is part of a wider Kremlin campaign to use history very selectively and in manipulative ways.

The very fact that the Red Army captured Warsaw and pushed the German troops out of Poland in 1945 does not mean that the USSR brought freedom to the Polish people. According to the statements of the Polish MFA, Poland respects the sacrifice of the Soviet soldiers in the fight against Nazism, but in 1945, Stalin’s regime brought Poland terror and atrocities. The Red Army liberated Warsaw from Nazi occupation, but it didn’t mean liberty for Poland as the Soviet Army stayed in Poland for 48 years, which resulted in decades of communist oppression.

According to mainstream Polish historians and views of the predominant part of Polish society, in 1944-1945, the USSR occupied Poland, establishing the undemocratic and repressive Communist Poland. De facto, Poland appeared under Soviet military occupation until 1989, while the Russian troops were withdrawn from Poland only in 1993. Read more about the Communist crimes in Poland here.

Disinfo: US biolabs in Ukraine are aimed at reducing Russia's gene pool

US biolabs in Ukraine are aimed at reducing Russia's gene pool. It has long been known what these Pentagon biolabs in Ukraine were doing. They grew pathogenic microbes to infect humans, everything was done with the Russian gene pool in mind. We know that about 30 Pentagon biolaboratories were dispersed in different cities on Ukrainian territory with different specialisations, but with one goal: to cheaply and angrily destroy the central enemy and its allies.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about biological weapons and dangerous pathogens being secretly developed by the US in the countries bordering Russia. This narrative is a leitmotif in a years-old disinformation campaign conducted by the Kremlin and is currently deployed in an attempt to justify Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

Some of the most bizarre and yet enduring Kremlin disinformation narratives have been those accusing the West of running clandestine biological research programmes to wreak havoc around the world. There are no US biological warfare laboratories in Ukraine. Ukraine is one of the states cooperating with the US Department of Defence's Biological Threat Reduction Programme (BTRP): the goal of the BTRP is to safeguard global health by preventing and containing the outbreak of infectious diseases and establishing high international standards in biological security.

Disinfo: Ukrainian terrorists almost finished a dirty bomb

The provocation of the Bandera terrorists with a "dirty bomb", the preparation of which was known almost from the beginning of the special military operation, has entered the implementation phase.


Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claim accusing Ukraine of posing a nuclear threat to Russia.

There is no evidence that Ukraine is attempting to use nuclear materials in a war against Russia. Ukraine neither possesses any kinds of nuclear weapons, including dirty nuclear bombs, nor prepares one. In 1994, Ukraine signed a Budapest Memorandum abandoning its nuclear arsenal. Ukraine also joined the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.

Disinfo: The US can contaminate the whole Ukraine with radiation from dirty bomb to harm Russia

Ukraine has been and remains a failed state. Its authorities have no idea what they are doing. Zelenskyy is incapable of realising what might happen if a ‘dirty bomb’ is used. Hence, on US’s orders he can really use such bomb. To harm Russia, Americans can do anything with Ukraine, including to contaminate its whole territory with radiation.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about non-sovereign Ukraine and the US as the mastermind of the Russo-Ukrainian war, as well as about nuclear and chemical weapons attacks. Such claims are a part of a broader pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign accompanying the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, trying to place the blame for the war's atrocities on Ukraine.

Claims about false flag operations about nuclear or chemical weapons attacks are a staple of the pro-Kremlin disinformation apparatus. Such claims are a part of a broader pro-Kremlin information manipulation campaign supporting the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and trying to place the blame for the war’s atrocities on Ukraine, our recent analysis explains.
