Disinfo: The CIA was leading the Ukrainian Nazis in orchestrating the 2014 coup


The role of the United States and the European Union in orchestrating the 2014 coup in Ukraine is well known. The Ukrainian Nazis were the main driving force "on the ground" during these events. However, I have no doubt that the CIA was leading them.


Typical examples of recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation claims about Euromaidan and Nazi/fascist Ukraine and the US presence in Europe, recently repackaged to justify Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013–14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy.

In fact, far-right groups enjoyed a very limited presence during the Euromaidan protests and got abysmal results in the 2014 presidential and parliamentary elections. During the 2019 election cycle, the far right managed to sustain an even more tremendous failure; the highest-rated nationalist candidate, Ruslan Koshulynskyy, won 1.62% of the vote whereas Svoboda, one of the Kremlin's favourite bogeymen, won 2.16% of the national vote, falling far short of the 5% minimum guaranteeing entry into parliament.

Moreover, Euromaidan was 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. It was not orchestrated by any foreign actors.

Disinfo: Ukraine launched a missile strike on Kramatorsk railway station

The Ukrainian armed forces launched an air strike on the Kramatorsk railway station with a Tochka-U tactical missile system, which is not in service in Russian Armed Forces or the DNR and LNR armies. The same complex was previously used by Ukrainian troops shelling Donetsk in early March.

The Kyiv regime aims to disrupt the mass exodus of residents and use them as "human shields" to defend its positions.

Disinfo: The dead people in Bucha are just part of a Ukrainian provocation

The Russian armed forces left the area on 30 March 2022, the mayor of Bucha celebrated with a video and did not mention any casualties, and 4 days later the first news of the "massacre" arrived after Ukrainian SBU troops and media representatives arrived in the area. Have the victims not been buried since 30 March just for the pictures?

This appears to be a Ukrainian provocation and is particularly worrying given the fact that, after at least four days, the bodies whose pictures have been published by the Kyiv regime do not have corpse marks, no characteristic body marks and no clotted blood in the wounds.

All this irrefutably confirms that the photos and videos in Bucha are another production of the Kyiv regime for the Western media, as happened with the maternity hospital in Mariupol and in other cities.


This is a disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin media denying the involvement of Russian troops in a massacre in the town of Bucha near Kyiv.

In reality, there is plenty of evidence about Russian involvement in the massacre in which dozens of civilians were found in a mass grave. It is not a final estimate because investigations are still underway. Killings, rape and other crimes against civilians were registered in Bucha. Even though a detailed report of what happened in Bucha is not yet available, videos shot on the ground show dozens of corpses left on the sides of the streets. According to Bucha’s mayor Anatoly Fedoruk at least 280 people have been buried in mass graves by the Russian army.

Disinfo: Russian troops only hit military targets in Ukraine

Russian troops only strike military infrastructure and targets in Ukraine and no civilians are targeted. The West staging scenes of attacks on civilians and not paying attention to Russian facts.
