Disinfo: Poland whitewashes Hitler by allowing the publication of “Mein Kampf”

Summary

The statement of the publishers of the “Mein Kampf. Critical Edition” about the low number of copies of this book is a marketing trick, encouraging people to a quick buy. They want to put as many “Mein Kampf” books on the Poles' tables as possible. After several decades of brainwashing of the Poles, whitewashing of the Nazi crimes and defamation of the USSR, the Polish society became prepared for the publication of this book.

In Poland, they implement a well-planned action of whitewashing Hitler and his Army’s actions. The legal publishing of this book in Poland and Germany means that such phenomena as Fascism and Nazism are not dying but only wait for their time to come.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative casting Ukraine, Poland and the Baltic States as countries that do not respect the history of WWII and its heroes (often, accusing them of supporting the Nazi ideology).

In January 2021, a large Polish publishing house “Bellona” published the book “Mein Kampf. Critical Edition”. This book was written and translated by a Polish historian and political scientist Dr Eugeniusz Król, a specialist on the history of National-Socialist propaganda in Germany. The book presents a scientific overview of the ''Mein Kampf'', containing its Polish translation with numerous historical comments. According to the words of Dr Król, at the present moment, the book is a warning to next generations about the risk of a quick dismantling of a democratic system and the emergence of totalitarianism, as it happened in Germany in the 1930s. The editors and the author of the book underline the anti-Nazi and anti-totalitarian character of their publication. In other words, the publication of the Critical Edition of the ''Mein Kampf'' in Poland has purely scientific, historical and anti-Nazi character.

Read similar cases accusing Poland of having sympathies to Nazism - Poland falsifies history destroying Soviet monuments and allowing the publication of Mein Kampf, The Polish society is being prepared for absolving the Nazis and The Polish authorities systematically re-write history, absolving the Nazis, the Third Reich and Hitler of their sins.

Disinfo: Trump's defeat in the 2020 presidential elections was the result of a conspiracy of globalist elites against the majority of Americans

Trump's defeat in the 2020 presidential elections was the result of a conspiracy of globalist elites against the majority of Americans. These globalist elites hold power in the US and have done everything possible to prevent Trump from serving a second term as US president.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory presented without evidence. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about global elites secretly ruling the world, and is consistent with the claim that there exists a ‘Deep State’ in the United States.

The article’s claims are also consistent with recurrent pro-Kremlin narratives that aim to question the legitimacy of liberal democracy and Western institutions and that seek to delegitimise the conduct and results of the 2020 US presidential election.

Disinfo: The US élite was behind the 9/11 attack and the assassination of John F. Kennedy

The US élite was behind the 9/11 attack and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. These are just some examples of a long series of secret conspiracies of the US élite.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative presented without evidence about global elites secretly ruling the world. The article’s claim is also consistent with the conspiracy about the so-called Deep State in the United States, which is allegedly a permanent, unelected shadow government responsible for numerous historical events, including the assassination of President John. F. Kennedy on 22 November 1963 and the 9/11 2001 terrorist attacks.

No serious evidence has come to light supporting the theory that President Kennedy was assassinated as a result of a US élite conspiracy, though conspiracy theories about the assassination are abound.

Disinfo: An anti-constitutional coup takes place in Ukraine

A creeping anti-constitutional coup takes place in Ukraine today. We know how independent the current president of Ukraine is and his actions, first to ban television channels, and now to ban one of the leading Ukrainian oligarchs, are an indicator of his power. But everything is exactly the opposite. He was ordered to go beyond constitutional norms.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine and the Ukrainian statehood.

There is no coup in Ukraine. The decision to impose sanctions against several individuals and legal entities, including Victor Medvedchuk, one of the leading pro-Kremlin politicians of Ukraine, was taken by the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine and signed by President Volodymyr Zelensky. This decision was based on the data that these people either finance or trade with the so-called LNR and DNR.
