Disinfo: Russia should not maintain diplomatic relations with Russophobic Poland


There is no point in maintaining diplomatic relations with Poland. This state must not exist for Russia while there is no one but Russophobes in power, and Ukraine is full of Polish mercenaries, who should be ruthlessly exterminated like stinky rats.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about an alleged Russophobic and anti-Russian Poland. Pro-Kremlin outlets regularly accuse the Polish authorities of Russophobia and of inflaming anti-Russian sentiments in order to reach particular domestic goals.

This claim, voiced by former President Dmitry Medvedev, now Deputy Chair of the Russian National Security Council, turns up the volume by suggesting to have Poland disappear. As such he deliberately ignite Russian historical revisionism fuelling hate towards the Polish state as such.

The Polish authorities perceive Russia as a security threat because of the aggressive Russian actions, in particular in Crimea, Donbas and Eastern Europe.

The 2020 National Security Strategy of Poland states that the most serious security threat for the country is the neo-imperial policy of the authorities of the Russian Federation, pursued by means of military force (aggression against Georgia, illegal annexation of Crimea and military actions in Eastern Ukraine). These aggressive actions of the Kremlin have violated the basic principles of international law and undermined the pillars of the European security system.

Particularly in the context of Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea and armed military aggression in Ukraine, Poland supports the deployment of NATO troops on its soil as this step increases its domestic security. Two-thirds of the Poles have a positive opinion about NATO’s activities.

Disinfo: Ukrainian Government to become second-rate 'Polish' politicians

Ukraine is already waste material for the West, which is tired of supporting Zelenskyy. Either Zelenskyy and his clique will proclaim themselves 'government-in-exile' somewhere, or they will become second-rate 'Polish' politicians in the Polish-Ukrainian quasi-state union, which presupposes the incorporation of the western Ukrainian regions by Poland.


Disinformation amid Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine with the claim about Poland's alleged intentions to occupy Ukrainian territories being a frequent disinformation narrative in pro-Kremlin outlets.

This message has adopted several different and sometimes contradictory forms, including allegations that Poland wants either to create a puppet proxy-state in Western Ukraine or the annexation of these territories or that it is actually President Zelenskyy who wants to cede this land.

Disinfo: Russia saved children not abducted them from Ukraine

There are many examples of genocide. But you definitely won’t find one among them when, during hostilities, someone took children to safe territories, gave them shelter and food, and sent them to school. Russia gave hope to thousands of children, returning them to the childhood they had forgotten.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denying war crimes committed by the Russian armed forces and the Russian federal administration in Ukraine. This claim was made in the context of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, which started on 24 February 2022.

The abduction and forced transportation of Ukrainian children to Russia has been documented by the UN, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International. Ukraine has already reported the actions of Russia's children’s ombudsman Maria Lvova-Belova to the International Criminal Court (ICC). On 02 March, ICC Prosecutor, Karim Khan decided to seek authorisation to open an investigation into the situation in Ukraine. It includes within its scope any past and present allegations of war crimes, crimes against humanity or genocide committed on any part of the territory of Ukraine by any person. On 17 March 2023, the ICC issued arrest warrants for two individuals in the context of the situation in Ukraine: Vladimir Putin and Maria Lvova-Belova.

Disinfo: West confirms its direct involvement in Ukraine conflict

The West is openly stating that it will do everything possible to make the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian armed forces a success. Western nations are openly demanding that the Russian side suffer the maximum possible losses. They are once again loudly confirming their direct involvement in the conflict.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that Russia is at war with the entire West. This claim was made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

In reality, the West is providing Ukraine with financial and military aid, but no Western troops are fighting on the frontline. Western nations assist Ukraine for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with Article 51 of the UN Charter, to stop Russia's unprovoked and unjustified aggression.
