Disinfo: Amnesty International and the Red Cross are missionaries for CIA and the US State Department


Amnesty International, National Endowment for Democracy, Freedom House, Peace Corps, Carnegie Endowment, International Committee of the Red Cross, Heritage Foundation, Open Society Foundations and others are named “missionaries of the empire” for their obvious connections with the CIA and the US State Department.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative casting civil uprisings in other states as US-funded "colour revolutions", consistent with multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role. 

Pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets regularly describes Western support to civil society and pluralism as attempts to destabilise Russia, without any proof. Similar cases can be found here and here.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

The ECHR makes all decisions based on its own anti-Russian logic of behavior

It is clear that the ECHR  makes all decisions based on its own, clearly expressed anti-Russian logic of behavior. It is naive to believe that they would suddenly begin to act somehow differently.
The ECHR has once again shown that this is not a court, but a bunch of swineherds in robes.


Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denigrating the European Court of Human Rights. 

The disinformation message appeared after the ECHR upheld its earlier ruling that Soviet repressions against Lithuanian partisans can be treated as genocide. Earlier Lithuanian courts have found S. Drelingas guilty of genocide for his participation in a secret operation to detain Adolfas Ramanauskas-Vanagas, one of the leaders of Lithuanian partisans. In March, the ECHR ruled that the judgement did not violate the former KGB officer’s rights. Read more about the ruling in English and Lithuania. Read a similar case here.

The “lovely” face of liberalism: “We should be open to cannibalism if it means fighting conservatism and climate change”

A Swedish liberal, Magnus Soderlund, a professor of the Stockholm School of Economics has suggested “we should eat human flesh”. According to professor Soderlund, “conservative taboos could change over time if people simply tried eating human flesh”. The liberals have gone so insane that not eating human flesh is now considered “conservative” in their depraved libtard minds.


A pro-Kremlin attempt to forward a narrative about the decaying values of the Western society. Professor Söderlund has never advocated cannibalism. He is a specialist in marketing, and is studying the dynamics behind various food taboos: insects, maggots - and human flesh. In the widely spread interview with Swedish TV channel TV4, he suggest that times might come when we might have to re-examine our taboos.

The West organised the Maidan coup to make Ukraine an anti-Russian state

Those forces in the West that made the Maidan coup possible are still in important positions. Through the military industrial complex, party bureaucracies, NGOs, think tanks and the media, they continue to exert great influence on government decisions; so even with frequent cabinet changes, politics remains constant. In some capitals, such as Berlin, the Maidan supporters are still in power.

These forces want to see Ukraine as a mono-ethnic country with EU and US affiliations and a nationalistic ideology influenced by Western Ukraine. In this scenario, the country should ideally be de-russified down to the last corner by bending and breaking.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the belligerent West and its involvement in the war in Ukraine, stating that the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests resulted in an illegal coup; painting Ukraine as a failing state incapable of making its own policy choices and painting the West as the puppet-master of Ukrainian politics and Ukraine as an anti-Russian project.

There was no coup d'état in Ukraine in 2014. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was not provoked from outside. The demonstrations were an organic reaction by numerous parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.
