Disinfo: Poland wages an information war against Russia

Summary

The shameful and Russophobic resolution of Polish politicians on the equal responsibility of the USSR and Nazi Germany over the outbreak of WWII once again confirms the fact that the current Polish authorities openingly falsify and revise the history of WWII, they are waging the information war against Russia.

Disproof

This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism. It accuses Poland of “the falsification and re-writing” of its history. According to this policy, the official Russian historiography is the only “true” way of interpreting the historical events of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe. On January 9th, the Polish Parliament adopted a resolution “condemning the provocative and untrue statements by representatives of the highest authorities of the Russian Federation attempting to hold Poland liable for the Second World War”.

ISIS was created and defended by the US

ISIS was created and defended by the US.

Disproof

No evidence is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the US and other Western states are supporting or working together with ISIS in the Middle East. This message is part of a broader conspiracy theory alleging that the United States and its NATO partners have created and supported many jihadi terrorist organisations and control global terrorism. In reality, the US is committed to fighting terrorist organisations, such as Daesh and Al-Qaeda.

Read here similar cases claiming that ISIS has been supported by US, British, French and Israeli intelligence services in order to demolish Syria and that Al Baghdadi was an American product.

The basis of the Istanbul Convention is to desecrate the education system

The basis of the Istanbul Convention is to desecrate the entire education system. Moreover, it will keep the system under the control of gender ideologists, starting from kindergarten. We are already seeing drafts of amendments to the Criminal Code. With a particular emphasis on: criminal responsibility for not hiring homosexuals in schools.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the Istanbul Convention. This message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the morally corrupt West and threatened traditional values.

The Istanbul Convention (the Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence) is a treaty of the Council of Europe that opens the path for creating a legal framework at a pan-European level to protect women against all forms of violence, and prevent, prosecute and eliminate violence against women and domestic violence.

Kaliningrad exclave is threatened by NATO

NATO is conducting non-stop activities of mobilization nature. And Russia is already presented as the main adversary. There are no direct threats to attack Russia. Nevertheless, different scenarios are being worked out. For example, to exclude options similar to the “annexation” of Crimea. The threat to Kaliningrad exclave has increased many times.

One of the high-ranking NATO generals announced that a military operation against Kaliningrad region is possible. So, NATO exercises are a direct immediate threat to Russian borders.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Western attempts to encircle Russia, Western belligerence and Western aggression against Kaliningrad.

The origins of this NATO scenario comes from a recent report by the American Jamestown Foundation entitled “How to Defend the Baltic States”, published in October 2019.
