DISINFO: The United States is occupying Europe


We, the Poles, should repeat to ourselves: the United States is an enemy of Poland. The United States is an enemy, an occupant of Europe. There is nothing personal here, no emotions. We should simply say: Yankee go home. Go back to your country and fix the problems you have. Leave the Poles and the rest of the world alone.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation message about the US presence in Europe. Poland has a long history of successful political, economic, military and cultural relations with the United States – both of these countries perceive their relations as strategic. The same article contains another disinformation message about Mark Zuckerberg introducing his own form of censorship against Sputnik, Xinhua and Press TV. See similar disinformation messages about the US presence in Europe - The American Embassy in Warsaw takes decisions on strategic issues instead of the Polish Government and President; Europe, including Germany, is subjected to Washington’s power and American analysts decided to restore the territory of the Third Reich.
