Russia's collapse is an aim of Western foreign policy

Summary of Disinformation

After the  collapse of the USSR, Western policy towards Russia has had a number of objectives including:

  • Slowing down Russian economic growth and the modernisation of its defense industry;
  • Creating instability around Russia and taking control of neighbouring countries’ foreign policies;
  • Creating preconditions for managed chaos and Russia’s collapse in order to get access to Russia’s natural resources.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Western Russophobia and alleged anti-Russian projects in the West, as well as about Western attempts to encircle Russia.

See earlier conspiracies about Western "Great Turan" doctrine aimed at creating a ring of unfriendly states along Russia's southern border and a similar anti-Russian plan for an "Anaconda ring". See also an earlier case about an alleged Western anti-family strategy with the ultimate aim of obtaining access to Russian natural resources.
