Disinfo: Russian-Belarusian defensive exercises are response to US war preparation in Eastern Europe


The joint Russian-Belarusian military training “Allied Resolve 2022” is an answer to the American rotation programme “Atlantic Resolve”. Russian-Belarusian exercise is defensive and is implemented on the territory of the Union state. It is the main difference from the American “Atlantic Resolve”, which is implemented on the territory of Eastern Europe and is the preparation for possible US Army actions in Belarus or Ukraine. “Allied Resolve 2022” is an answer to an aggressive and desperate policy of the US.

Meanwhile, it is Washington who is guilty of instability in Europe because the US organised in 2014 coup in Ukraine which started the civil war in Ukraine, and Crimea, as result, went back to Russia.


Recurring narratives of disinformation about military exercises as well as the war in Ukraine and illegal annexation of Crimea.

The “Atlantic Resolve” is not aimed against Russia. It is neither a part of the preparation for any kind of war in Ukraine nor Belarus. The aim of “Atlantic Resolve” is explained as follows: “The deployment of ready, combat-credible U.S. forces to Europe in support of Atlantic Resolve is evidence of the strong and unremitting U.S. commitment to NATO and Europe. Through bilateral, joint and multinational training, Atlantic Resolve builds readiness, increases interoperability and enhances the bond between ally and partner militaries”.

Accusing Washington of a “coup in Ukraine” or of waging the civil war in this country also is false. There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014; this is a longstanding pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's Euromaidan. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former president Viktor Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.

Disinfo: The trial of the January 13 case in Lithuania is political and toxic

The trial on the case of events of 13 January 1991 in Lithuania is political and toxic.

Vilnius is accusing Soviet soldiers of a clash with civil people but does not provide any evidence. Russia has many times accused Lithuania of violation of international law in the case of January 13. Lithuanian authorities are implementing a Russophobic course.


The case contains historical revisionism and recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the events of 13 January 1991, accusing Lithuania of Russophobia.

Lithuania officially restored its independence of state on 11 March 1990. Moscow used political and economic pressure to keep the republic as part of the USSR. In January 1991, Soviet troops together with the KGB's special forces “Alfa” seized the TV tower and building of the Radio and Television Committee in Vilnius. During these events, 14 civilians died, and many were injured. The civilians were peaceful and unarmed. They tried to protect the TV tower and Committee of Radio and Television from being attacked by Soviet soldiers.

Disinfo: NATO is not a defensive alliance, it attacks countries illegitimately

Middle Eastern people, for instance from Libya, Afghanistan or Iraq, know from their own experience that NATO is not a defensive alliance. What they did in Belgrade is also very far from what a peaceful organisation would do.


Recurring disinformation narrative concerning NATO's alleged aggressive policies.

NATO is a defensive alliance, whose purpose is to protect its member states. NATO members are only obliged to join hostilities if a member state was attacked in Europe or North America. Article 5 was invoked only once, after the 9/11 attacks.

Disinfo: Globalists and Judeo-Masons artificially create new strains of coronavirus to reduce the population

The variability of the COVID-19 virus (the rapid emergence of new mutations, strains) does not occur only in a natural way but is artificially stimulated by the globalist and Judeo-Masonic forces, the enemy of God and humans. Their goal is to reduce humanity. This makes the fight (including vaccination) against this evil more meaningless or ineffective.


Anti-Semitism and disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic and vaccination, in line with common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about a "shadow government of globalists" ruling the world and aiming to reduce world population through pandemics and vaccination.

This is part of a disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.
