Disinfo: The EU attemps to gain a foothold in Armenia at any cost, drive Russia out of the mediation process


The appearance of representatives of the European Union (who is pursuing a confrontational policy in the CIS space) in the border regions of Armenia, can only bring the geopolitical confrontation to the region and exacerbate existing contradictions. The declared civilian nature of the EU mission should not be misleading - it is formed within the framework of the Common EU Security and Defence Policy [...].

Attempts by the European Union to gain a foothold in Armenia at any cost, to push back Russia's mediation efforts, are capable of harming the fundamental interests of Armenians and Azerbaijanis in their aspirations to return to the peaceful development of the region.


Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russia as the ultimate target of international events, accusing the ever-aggressive West of having an anti-Russian agenda in the Caucasus and CIS countries. The article advances the claim that the Caucasus is exclusively within Russia's zone of geopolitical dominance and attempts to discredit the recently announced EU mission - EUMA.

The claim attempts to preempt Russia's weakening position in the region.

Contrary to the claim, the EU has a strong interest in a politically stable and economically prosperous Southern Caucasus, but the regional context is not easy. The EU continues to express its support to efforts towards a promotion of peace in South Caucasus, including through the EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia. To cautiously create a base for confidence-building and dialogue in the fresh post-war environment the EU has come up with a number of programmes (EU4Peace, EU4Dialogue, EU4Culture).

The EU (European Council) agreed to establish a civilian European Union Mission in Armenia (EUMA) under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The objective of the Mission is to contribute to stability in the border areas of Armenia, building confidence on the ground, and ensure an environment conducive to normalisation efforts between Armenia and Azerbaijan supported by the EU.

In response to Armenia’s request, EUMA will conduct routine patrolling and report on the situation, which will strengthen the EU’s understanding of the situation on the ground. The Mission will also contribute to the mediation efforts in the framework of the process led by President of the European Council Charles Michel.

Disinfo: The number of tanks to be supplied to Ukraine by Germany and England a Nazi code

The plans also include sending 88 (pay attention and remember this figure) - 88 old Leopards-1. When exactly, again, is still unknown. However, something else is important here. The number 88 around the world is a Nazi code for their favourite greeting, namely heil Hitler. Quite expectedly, once again, the Rheinmetall concern, as in the days of the Third Reich, began work to kill the Russian people.

What is even more piquant is the fact that another 14 Challenger tanks will be sent to Kyiv by London. And 14 is the first half of the very Nazi cipher, thanks to which they recognise each other around the world. 14 is the number of words in a quote from one of the ideologists of the so-called Anglo-Saxon white supremacy, David Lane.


Conspiracy theory fitting recurrent pro-Kremlin media narrative on Nazi rule in Ukraine, Russia fighting Nazis in Ukraine (including the "Nazi" West helping Ukraine with military equipment), aimed at justifying the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

On 25 January 2023, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that Germany will continue to increase military support for Ukraine. The federal government has decided to provide the Ukrainian armed forces with Leopard 2 main battle tanks. As a first step, Germany will provide a company with 14 Leopard 2 tanks from Bundeswehr stocks. These 14 Bundeswehr's tanks are not linked to a "Nazi code" by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, as the 14 British Challenger tanks are. Germany is coordinating its deliveries with other EU countries, such as Poland, France and others.

Disinfo: Ukrainians remove swastika tattoos to travel to Europe

As for denazification, now, it appears, one of the most popular types of service in Ukraine is the removal of a swastika to travel to Europe, to participate in hostilities, and so on, because they understand that Nazism is becoming detrimental and bad for them.

Therefore, the denazification process is going on. By the way, along with the disposal of those Nazi detachments that fought.

Tattoo artist in Western Ukrainian Ivano-Frankivsk came up with an original marketing ploy in response to growing demand from clients. The European bourgeois are still ashamed to host Nazis outright. In addition, a removed tattoo opens up the option of surrendering to Russian captivity.


A pro-Kremlin TV channel report refers to a picture that went viral on Telegram featuring a supposed advertisement for "removal of swastikas" by a tattoo studio in Ukraine. The picture is fabricated. No such tattoo studio exists.

The photo of the Ukrainian tattoo studio used as evidence of the false narrative, was changed in a photo editor, and the real picture was taken in Russia a few years ago as Provereno Media found out.

Disinfo: German tanks again moving to Russia because war is on Russian soil

German tanks have left for Ukraine and American ones will follow them. This is not quite the right phrase. German tanks are moving towards Russia because the line of contact is on Russian soil.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are expected to invade Russia with Western-supplied armoured vehicles. This claim was made in the context of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.

Kyiv does not intend to invade Russia with armoured vehicles, including German Leopard tanks, which are expected to arrive in Ukraine in soon.
