Disinfo: The US is instigating war in Ukraine to boycott the Nord Stream 2 project


Western articles warn of the possibility of a Russian attack on Ukraine this winter, but who would be interested in such an attack if not the US trying to boycott the Nord Stream 2.

It is clear that an attack wouldn’t be in the interest of Russia. The only beneficiary is many kilometres away, instigating all this. Biden and the US need their historical scapegoat, and in this case, Russia has become the perfect archetype of a country that is against those sacred Euro-Atlantic Western values.

They are carrying out a hybrid war in every sense, economic, military, political, media, to provoke any spark that allows the long-desired intervention in Ukraine.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US and the West. This narrative is part of an ongoing disinformation campaign aiming to deflect any Russian responsibility in the escalation of tensions with Ukraine as a result of Russia’s military buildup on the border.

Since late October 2021 Russia has conducted a military-build up along the Ukrainian border, including the deployment of as much as 90,000 troops, as well as of certain specialised military units, electronic warfare systems and heavy-armoured vehicles. Despite Russian denials, this has been proven by satellite images and intelligence of the US, Ukraine and NATO, among other countries and institutions. The European Union has stated that it will be standing firmly and decisively with Ukraine in front of any attempt to undermine its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

See other examples of similar disinformation narratives in our database, such as claims that the West needs Ukraine for NATO bases as Kyiv prepares for a mythical Russian invasion, that Ukrainian officials are obsessed by imaginary invasions and inexistent Russian imperial ambitions, or that Russia sent troops to the Ukrainian border because there was danger for the Russian population in Donbas.

This disinformation story appeared in the same TV programme as the claims that “Lithuania neglected its border and human traffickers took advantage of it”, and that “Fake news about the Belarusian border crisis is part of a total war by the West”.

Disinfo: In Italy, a tyrannical government has turned police forces into the Gestapo

In Italy, similarly to Australia, New Zealand and other Western countries, a tyrannical government has turned the police forces into a “health Gestapo” exploiting the coronavirus pandemic.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Western governments have exploited the coronavirus pandemic in order to abolish liberal democracies and establish dictatorships.

Various lockdown measures taken by the Western democracies aim to protect public health against the COVID-19 virus, which has killed millions of people worldwide and is a real danger for populations around the world.

Disinfo: Nations are ruled by the dictatorship of the global billionaires elite

Nations have lost their sovereignty and are ruled by the dictatorship of the global billionaires elite.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about secret global elites that dominate the world, control governments and are establishing a dictatorship over the world’s population. In the US, these elites are identified as the Deep State.

Analysts and researchers have pointed out that anti-Western conspiracy theories about all-powerful secret elites are a political tool used by the Kremlin to strengthen the domestic stability of the current regime and expand its influence abroad by emphasising Russia’s moral superiority

Disinfo: The 2020 US presidential election was massively corrupt

The 2020 US presidential election was massively corrupt. In the swing states Trump had a strong lead until the polls closed for the night. Then a wave of false votes was sent to polling stations in large inner Democratic-dominated cities, and by the time the polls were reopened, Biden was mysteriously ahead in every state.


Recurring disinformation about fraud in the 2020 US presidential elections, also aimed at discrediting the United States and liberal democracies.

It is not true, as the article claims, that a wave of false votes was sent to polling stations in large inner Democratic-dominated cities during the night. There is no evidence that the US 2020 presidential elections were fraudulent. Allegations of electoral fraud have been dismissed more than 60 times by different US courts and judges, both Republican and Democrat, due to lack of any significant evidence, including the Supreme Court on two occasions.
