Russia has not violated international law

Summary of Disinformation

Russia has not violated international law. The only thing Russia has violated is the “new world order” established by the US and its satellites, including Estonia. Neither Russia nor other sovereign states can cope with this unwritten world order. The US and Europe are unable to refer to any article allegedly violated by Russia because this article does not exist and often times Europe and Russia mean different things under the notion of international law.


A conspiracy theory on "The New World Order", presented without evidence. In fact, Russia violated international law when it launched the military aggression against Georgia in 2008, committed crimes against humanity and war crimes on the territory of Georgia, constantly violates the six-point ceasefire agreement between Russia and Georgia, annexed Crimea in 2014, attacked Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait in 2018, expropriated the assets of a Ukrainian oil company in the territory of Crimea, failed to declare its own Novichok production facilities and delays in destroying stockpiles of other chemical weapons. These violations were accompanied by the usual disinformation narratives. 

Several other examples of disinformation narratives are available below:

  1. Russia carried out a peacekeeping mission in Georgia in 2008.
  2. Crimea reunited with Russia through a democratic referendum.
  3. Ukrainian naval vessels violated the Russian border in Kerch Strait.
  4. Contradictory and different narratives about the Skripal poisoning can be found here.

More about the violations of the certain articles of international law by Russia is available here.
