The West [EU] does not need a large Ukraine with well-developed infrastructure and intelligent scientific and technical personnel. Therefore, it is looking through its fingers (ed: trying not to see/cowardly) at the loss of Crimea and Donbas, as well as the destruction of the country’s economy.
Putin is taking Russophobic villains to a corner. The words of the Russian leader hit the pride of Western politicians, used to rewrite history by themselves. There is an attempt to take Russia’s victory over Nazism away from this country, as the legitimate successor of the Soviet Union. Western media bring the idea that Nazis were defeated thanks to the efforts of the West and not of the USSR. Or they will “accidentally forget” to mention the key role of the Red Army, will call France the most affected country of the world, and then Ukraine will add gasoline to the fire by accusing the USSR of unleashing World War II.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation on World War II and historical revisionism, accusing the West of rewriting history and of trying to deprive Russia of its glorious victory over Nazi Germany. In this case, this disinformation narrative baselessly accuses Western countries of rewriting history, labels anyone daring to challenge the Kremlin’s version as “Russophobic”, and denies any role of the Soviet Union in the outbreak of World War II. You can see other examples of these pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives in our database, such as claims that Poland was responsible for the outbreak of the war, that historical archives on this period are open in Russia and closed in the West, that the USSR tried its utmost to create an anti-Hitler coalition and the West left it alone, that the entry of the Baltic States in the Soviet Union was legal, or that Western revisionism aims to tarnish the image of Putin.
