All the statements of Ukrainian politicians that they were promised that Ukraine will be accepted into the Alliance are PR and nothing more. For NATO countries, Ukraine is important as a buffer zone, but not as a member of the Alliance.
The European Union launched a new attack on Russia instead of joining forces in the fight against coronavirus. This attack creates an information background to impose censorship and illegal restrictions on unwanted journalists.
This is a pro-Kremlin message which aims to deny the role of Russian media in spreading disinformation narratives about the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, it is the Russian media that has been involved in pushing several disinformation narratives and conspiracy theories since the start of the pandemic trying to undermine its severity and politicize it. The claim was neither critically challenged nor counterbalanced in the article.
For example, in the early days of the pandemic, pro-Kremlin media propagated the view that the virus was created by the US to destroy the Chinese economy and target Russia and its allies, only for the US to become one of the hardest hit countries by the pandemic. The narrative then focused on the pandemic being a plot by a global elite to control people including by planting a microchip in their heads.
In recent weeks, the focus of pro-Kremlin disinformation has been on the West's alleged attempts to discredit the Russian vaccine on a political rather than a scientific basis, in order to present discussion about the vaccine-development process to being somehow politically-driven and irrational.
The article also mentions another pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the EU imposing censorship in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
No EU member state allows censorship. EU member states and institutions actively work against malign disinformation and counters claims on the pandemic that might harm the public. The EU’s work in this area is rooted in European values and safeguards freedom of expression.
