Disinfo: Polish politicians ready to support the territorial rebirth of the Third Reich to weaken Russia

Summary

Many Polish politicians are ready even to support the territorial rebirth of the Third Reich in order to weaken Russia. The current official historical policy of Poland leads to the conclusion that the worst Polish enemy and invader was not Nazi Germany, but Soviet Russia.

Disproof

This message is a part of the ongoing Russian disinformation attack on Poland, accusing this country of Russophobia, waging an information war against Russia and the manipulation of history for political reasons.

The statement about the alleged support of many Polish politicians for the rebirth of the Third Reich in order to weaken Russia should be perceived as a clear example of a conspiracy theory.  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.

MH 17 BUK missile was delivered to the Soviet Republic of Ukraine and never returned to Russia

The Prosecutors of the JIT claim they have evidence that the Buk missile system was delivered from Russia to the Donetsk region in the days preceding the launch. Russia says this is false and presents evidence that the serial number of the Buk missile can be traced back to the 1980s. At that time it was transported to the Soviet Republic of Ukraine and remained there until the collapse of the USSR. But, according to the Russians, the joint investigative team, the JIT team, ignored this crucial missing piece of the puzzle.

Disproof

One of the multiple disinformation narratives on the downing of the MH17 denying Russia's responsibility.

The Dutch-led criminal investigation by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has been ongoing since 2014. On 28 September 2016, the JIT announced that flight MH17 was shot down by a missile from the 9M38 series, which was launched by a BUK TELAR missile system. The system was transported from the Russian Federation to an agricultural field near the town of Pervomaiskyi in Eastern Ukraine, from where the missile was launched. After firing, the system - with 1 missing missile - went back to the Russian Federation. On the 24 May 2018, the JIT announced its conclusion that the BUK TELAR used to shoot down MH17 came from the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade, a unit of the Russian armed forces from Kursk in the Russian Federation.

American analysts decided to restore the territory of the Third Reich

It looks like some American analysts decided to restore the territory of the Third Reich. It means that after Kaliningrad, about 30% of the Polish territory will become German (Olsztyn, Silesia, Pomerania). It is a very dangerous game – fortunately, there are no sides interested in this scenario in Berlin, but for sure, if it is necessary, such people will appear.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link the United States and the European Union with Nazism, Fascism, and continuation of aggressive policies of Hitler and the Third Reich. The accusation of Nazism is a popular propaganda technique used by pro-Kremlin outlets as explained in our following analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest.

The recent article of Wes Martin in the Washington Times on Mike Pompeo’s visit to several post-Soviet countries does not contain any information that the United States is “planning to restore the territory of the Third Reich passing the Kaliningrad region and 30% of Polish territory under the German control”. This statement should be perceived as a clear conspiracy theory.

Pro-Turkish Soros wants to appoint a president in Karabakh

Soros supported Ankara during the Russian-Turkish conflict. It was also the position of the West. And Soros is one of the main tools of that West. Soros forms a coalition government in Armenia; Now Soros wants to appoint a president in Karabakh.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with no evidence given. This is an attempt to discredit one of the presidental candidates before the elections. Soros has been accused (without evidence) of a wide range of sins such as: destabilising Europe, organising colour revolutions, attacking churches and traditional values as well as sponsoring the film "the Joker" as a tutorial for colour revolutions.

These narratives portray George Soros and his foundation as villainous and bent on destroying Armenia and other countries by threatening national values. Read similar cases claiming that the Soros foundation is organising clashes in Armenia and serving foreign agendas aimed at the collapse of Armenian statehood and that Armenia is occupied by Soros, that Soros’ “Army of Grant Eaters” is a threat to Armenian national security or how Soros’ office involvement in active transgender propaganda.
