Disinfo: Polish politicians accept all crimes of the Ukrainian nationalists in order to keep them anti-Russian


The neo-Banderite extremists found a faithful friend in the person of Jan Rokita. The problem here is that the anti-Russian nature of Ukrainian nationalism goes hand in hand with its anti-Polish attitude. This situation will always continue because of the specific historical context of Polish-Ukrainian relations. Jan Rokita should have added that the Ukrainian nationalists might be anti-Polish and anti-Semitic; they might even murder and kill as long as they were anti-Russian. This statement is the axiom in Polish politics.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link the Baltic countries, Ukraine, and Poland with NazismFascism, and anti-Semitism. The accusation of Nazism is a popular propaganda technique used by pro-Kremlin outlets, as explained in our analysis: Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo’s nest.

The claim that the Polish politicians “tolerate the anti-Semitic and anti-Polish position of the Ukrainian nationalists” in order to promote Russophobia is unfounded.

There are no visible anti-Polish attitudes in Ukraine. On the contrary, there are quite strong pro-Polish sympathies in the Ukrainian society - three fourth of the Ukrainians believe that the Polish-Ukrainian relations are good; the Poles enter the list of the top-3 most favoured nations by the Ukrainians.

The claim was made against the backdrop of a Polish politician, Jan Rokita, publishing an article in a Polish weekly “Sieci” about the success of the summit of the Crimea Platform.

The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine’s foreign policy. The Nazi and Communist ideologies were banned by Ukrainian law in 2015.

Disinfo: The Biden-Zelenskyy summit proves Ukraine has become a US colony

When they say that the US is supporting future steps in certain sectors, this involves agriculture, climate and energy. That is, the one paying will have access to lands, energy production, railways and port infrastructure. This is an undeniable proof that Ukraine has become an American colony.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative widely promoted by pro-Kremlin outlets to make allegations of ”foreign control” of Ukraine. The narrative is aimed at undermining Ukraine's sovereignty and struggle for territorial integrity, as well as at discrediting international support in the wake of still ongoing acts of Russian aggression in the country's Donbas region and the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula.

The disinformation claim above refers to a recent high-level summit between US President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The summit has resulted in broadening strategic cooperation between the two countries in a number of areas, including the economy, military, and climate among others. In sharp contrast to the disinformation claim, active economic cooperation with a foreign country does not result in becoming a colony.

Disinfo: Global elites overthrew Donald Trump

The US does not exist as a national state which defends the interests of citizens. This was shown by the overthrow of Donald Trump. The US has become a hostage of its own global elites.


This disinformation claim combines a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about secret global elites with the narrative about the stolen 2020 US presidential election from former President Donald Trump. The narrative is now being repeated in the context of the withdrawal of the US troops from Afghanistan.

Donald Trump was defeated by Joe Biden in a legitimate and valid election: the 2020 presidential election, which has been indisputably proven to be the most secure democratic election in history, well managed and legitimate, as determined by the US Supreme Court.

Disinfo: Western leaders vowed NATO would not expand eastwards

What has not been put on paper, history quickly reduces to zero - just like the promise made by then-German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and then-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to then-Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev that NATO will not be expanding to the East.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets alleging that the West deceived the former Soviet Union and subsequently Russia by breaking its promise not to expand NATO to the East.

In reality, these claims are unsubstantiated because there is no trustworthy evidence that any Western leader ever gave assurances to former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev about NATO’s pledge not to admit new members. There is no recorded or otherwise documented commitment to this effect. Gorbachev himself denied this claim in an interview in 2014:
