The EU continues the aggressive policies of Nazi Germany

Summary of Disinformation

The present ruling elites of the West follow many concepts of Nazi Germany. They continue considering the people of Russia and other post-Soviet countries as Untermenschen (“racially inferior” people) and the Eurasian space as Lebensraum (‘living space’). In this light, there is no difference between Hitler’s concept of a New Europe and the present European Union. The EU remains the Europe of capitals and elites, not the Europe of the people. The destruction of the USSR, NATO’s expansion to the East, banderovshchina (‘fascist regime’) in Ukraine and the revival of neo-Nazism in the Baltic states – all these are manifestations of an old West’s ‘Drang nach Osten‘ (Drive to the East) policy.



Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Nazis in the EU,  that have been repeatedly debunked (see here).

The European Union is set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Second World War.

The founders of the EU have no connection with Nazis. The Nazi ideology and the EU are based on opposite values ​​and principles. Read more here.

In 2012, the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for advancing the causes of peace, reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.
