Disinfo: The EU should compensate Russia for genocide during WWII


During the WWII, armies of Europe – namely Germany, Italy, France, Romania, Slovakia, Croatia, Finland, Belgium, and Poland killed millions of Soviet civilians, hence Russia should demand financial compensations from the EU for genocide. Nineteen million Soviet people, civilians, non-combatants, were killed by European armies.



During the WWII, ‘armies of Europe’ did not invade the USSR. It was the Axis powers, opposed by the Allied powers headed by France, the UK, the US and the USSR. Some European countries had been forced by Nazi Germany to join the Axis powers, but then, after capitulation to the Soviet army, supported the Allied powers. Poland was seized and then divided by Hitler and Stalin in 1939 and then, after WWII, occupied by the USSR as were large parts of Eastern Europe. The EU was established after WWII.

Ukrainians are not Ukrainians but Russians

Citizens of Ukraine are not Ukrainians. By and large, they are Russians. By and large, this is the same nation.



An old myth designed by Kremlin and debunked many times. The Russians and the Ukrainians are not the same or single nation. Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc.

The US unfairly imposes guilt on Russia

The aim of the US statements on National Day for the Victims of Communism is to impose a permanent guilt on Russia.



National Day for the Victims of Communism that in 2017 marks 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia is to remind the people of the deaths and suffering caused by communist totalitarian regimes. According to the White House, the US remembers those who have died and all who continue to suffer under communism.  www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/11/07/national-day-victims-communism,

Russia is not a communist country. According to the Constitution, "Russia is a democratic federal law-bound State with a republican form of government". www.constitution.ru/en/10003000-02.htm,
