Disinfo: The sovereignty of the EU countries is fiction


The sovereignty of the EU countries is fiction. The constitution of each EU member state speaks about the sovereignty of the nation, which goes in a clear contradiction with the EU principle of supremacy of European law over national law. This situation makes the sovereignty of nations of individual states fiction.


A widespread disinformation narrative claiming that the EU member states are not sovereign.

This message is often spread by pro-Kremlin outlets in order to promote euro-scepticism in Europe. The European Union is explicit on the subject of national sovereignty: “the Member States all remain sovereign and independent states, they have decided to pool some of their 'sovereignty' in areas where it makes sense to work together.”

The aims and values on which the European Union is founded are linked to the pursuit of peace, the well-being of its citizens, freedom, security and justice. The EU safeguards democracy and the rule of law is one of the fundamental pillars of the Treaty on European Union, according to which everything the EU does is founded on treaties, voluntarily and democratically agreed by its EU countries.

Disinfo: The EU is trying to flood Belarus with terrorists under the guise of refugees

The migration war waged between Belarus and its neighbouring EU countries has entered a new phase of bitterness. EU leaders tirelessly accuse Alexander Lukashenko of "a hybrid attack on a free Europe with the help of migrants." The Belarusians, in turn, convict the “civilised Europeans” of the sadistic treatment of refugees. Moreover, as noted in Minsk, the European Union is trying to flood Belarus with terrorists under the guise of refugees.


Disinformation narrative about the ongoing migration crisis on the eastern borders of the European Union.

The migration crisis was directly caused by the Belarusian authorities.

Disinfo: Terrorists and White Helmets prepare chemical attack in Syria

Islamist terrorist organisations are preparing an attack with chemical weapons against government forces in cooperation with the pseudo-humanitarian group White Helmets.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation painting the White Helmets as terrorists and shifting blame for chemical attacks in Syria away from Damascus.

The claim is made without evidence and follows an established pattern of unsubstantiated accusations regarding the White Helmets' complicity in chemical attacks in Syria. Available evidence on such attacks has yet to link a single incident to any other party than the Assad regime.

Disinfo: Western polls confirm Lukashenka's victory in presidential election in Belarus

In Belarus, Westerners conducted sociological research, where Belarusians unequivocally stated that no Tsikhanouskaya had ever won the election. And they admit that the current president is definitely the winner.


The claim that "Westerners" allegedly conducted research confirming the victory of Lukashenka in the 2020 Belarusian presidential election is not supported by any evidence. No recent known Western researches confirm this claim.

In October 2020, Chatham house published a poll on Belarus. When the respondents were asked how they voted, only 20.6% of respondents said they voted for Lukashenka, while 52.2% said they cast their vote for his opponent Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya. Another survey was conducted in March 2021 by the German Center for Eastern European and International Studies (ZoiS). According to this poll, 53% of those polled said that they voted for Tsikanouskaya, and 65% believe that the election results were falsified in favour of Lukashenka. There were only 18% of those who voted for him among respondents.
