Disinfo: The EP Resolution aims to minimize the role of the USSR’s in WWII


Today, the role of the USSR [in WWII] is ignored and relentlessly minimized. Recently, the EU Parliament adopted a frightening Resolution, which is a part of the campaign aimed at the reduction of the role of the USSR [in WWII]. Historians cannot ignore this situation. It is an anti-historical process, which harms the historical truth.


This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to portray Russia's role in World War II as not aggressive. Recently, pro-Kremlin media has been actively spreading various disinformation messages about the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and condemnation of totalitarian ideologies.

It is a fact that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact contained the Secret Supplementary Protocol, which assumed the division of Poland and other Eastern European countries between the USSR and Germany. Thus, the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact enabled the German and Soviet military aggression against Poland in September 1939, which resulted in the occupation of this country by Germany and USSR, triggering the beginning of WWII.

Trump ordered 250 US soldiers to spread Coronavirus two months before the virus outbreak in Wuhan

There are big question marks about the spread of the disease (Coronavirus) in countries opposing or competing with the United States of America.

Two months prior to the Coronavirus outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan, there were American health exercises in which 250 American soldiers participated. There are talks that the Americans may have spread the virus, and there are those who say that (US President Donald) Trump is the one who gave orders to spread this epidemic.


Recurring conspiracy theories that echo pro-Kremlin disinformation about coronavirus. The narratives also resemble a recurring conspiracy theory about the Lugar Lab in Georgia.

Apart from the American soldiers, there were, in fact, 17 teams with over 280 athletes and staff in the Military World Games that was held from October 18–27, 2019 in the capital of Hubei Province in Wuhan. The Coronavirus started to spread 65 days after the closing ceremony of the Military World Games, and so far there is no evidence to prove any connection between the two events.

The Istanbul Convention invents new human species

The Istanbul Convention invents new human species, in which the gender of the person is defined socially and even politically.

When the Romanians will finally wake up, they will see not only that they are indebted to foreign banks for ten generations, but also that their offspring are no longer boys or girls, as they thought, but what the Istanbul Convention wants: socially manipulable genetic material as the state tells them to be. Not the Romanian state, which has long been dissolved, but the global state.


A recurring disinformation narrative about the Western values and the Istanbul Convention. See a related disinformation case alleging that the Istanbul convention will destroy a traditional Armenian family.

The Istanbul Convention (Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention and Combating of Violence against Women and Domestic Violence) is a treaty according to which the signatory states will adopt appropriate laws and take measures to punish, combat and eliminate all forms of violence against women and domestic violence.

Western intelligence supports the White helmets to launch a media war against Syria

Western intelligence is assisting and supporting the White Helmets financially and logistically, with the aim of launching a media war against Syria.

Two years ago, information blaming the Syrian army and forces of the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian city of Douma was spread around the world, and this was a planned misinformation campaign supported by Western countries.

Investigations have proven that the White Helmets allegations about the use of chemical weapons were just a slander.

The (White Helmets) organization is funded by British intelligence services and is carrying out its tasks by disseminating information and allegations against Syria and its army.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative deflecting blame for chemical attacks away from the Assad regime; aiming to discredit the OPCW, in addition to label the White Helmets as terrorists or as accomplices with terrorist organizations by staging and/or perpetrating chemical attacks, sometimes with the help of Western intelligence agencies. These claims are not supported by evidence.

The UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for the April 2017 attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 2018, Russia vetoed a US-drafted UN Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria. In June 2018, the OPCW members granted it the power to assign responsibility for chemical attacks.
