In the Baltic States Russophobia and neo-Nazism are established at the state level

Summary of Disinformation

In the Baltic States Russophobia is established at the state level. The Baltic States propagate neo-Nazi ideas, persecute human rights defenders, close down media outlets. All of this resembles pre-war Nazi Germany.

 

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia and Nazism in the Baltic countries.

The disinformation message appeared after Latvia blocked the access to the Baltnews portal. The decision citing EU sanctions to Russia was made after Latvian ministry of foreign affairs indicated that the portal belongs to the Rossiya Segodnya news agency, which is headed by Dmitry Kiselyov, who is on the EU’s list of sanctioned persons. Other Baltic States also recognize Baltnews portals as Russia's state financed propaganda media outlets. (See National Threat Assessment 2017 by the Lithuanian State Security Department).

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the Baltic states openly glorify Nazism and that Russophobia is the main export of Lithuania.
