Disinfo: The US wants to disintegrate the EU through the war in Ukraine


The war in Ukraine is the US's way of disintegrating the EU, its major competitor. The US is using various methods which it used to apply in relations with the USSR.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the war in Ukraine and the US having malicious intentions towards Europe, trying to deflect responsibility for the war from Russia by claiming that the US would benefit from it and has a hidden agenda related to the war.

This narrative, aimed at wedge driving between EU and the US, is often intertwined with the one about an alleged loss of sovereignty of the EU and its member states. Pro-Kremlin outlets often portray European states as vassals, puppet-states or colonies of the US. See our article Key Narratives in Pro-Kremlin Disinformation Part 3: ‘Lost Sovereignty’.

Read similar disinformation cases claiming that EU and NATO member states are subordinate to the US, while the US has long regarded the EU as a kind of protectorate, that lined up with the US, the EU never took independent decisions, that Europe is a colony of the United States, that When the US orders, the EU complies.

Disinfo: Events in Haiti are “planned chaos” to execute foreign intervention

Everything that is taking place in Haiti is “planned chaos” to be able to execute an international intervention.


Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence, aiming to support a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about an imperialist West.

UN Secretary General António Guterres called on 10 October 2022 for ‘enhanced security support’ for Haiti and ‘a rapid action force” to help the country’s government to deal with increasing instability fuelled by gang violence. This call was made days after Haitian interim prime minister Ariel Henry had requested a foreign armed intervention to stabilize the country. As a result, the United States drafted a United Nations Security Council resolution encouraging the “immediate deployment of a multinational rapid action force” to Haiti, according to The Miami Herald. The measure led to violent protests and was rejected by some civil society groups and humanitarian organisations. However, nothing suggests any international hand behind destabilising events in Haiti. Actually, the situation of instability was largely created by violent armed gangs that have been a serious problem in the country for a long time, including the group of Jimmy “Barbecue” Cherizier, whose G9 gang confederation blocked the so-called Varreux fuel terminal in late September. These actions have “directly contributed to the economic paralysis and humanitarian crisis in Haiti”, according to a UN Security Council resolution drafted by Mexico and the US to impose sanctions on Cherizier and other gang members.

Disinfo: Steadfast Noon exercise is a general rehearsal for WWIII

The maneuvers are not taking place at a declared safe distance from Russia (1,000 km), but within the range of strategic nuclear weapons that can reach Moscow and other major cities in the western part of Russia.

The events in Ukraine (as well as in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, and Yugoslavia) show that NATO is an instrument of escalation and is not geared for anything else. Steadfast Noon maneuvers are an absolute threat to Russia, Europe and the world.

Besides, during the Steadfast Noon maneuvers, man-made disasters, lightning strikes, fires, and even terrorist attacks by Ukrainian special services are not ruled out in order to involve NATO in a direct military conflict with Russia.

The bloc's internal divisions heighten doubts about the technological safety of the Steadfast Noon war games. There is wide scope for a possible escalation here, and not a single argument in favour of strengthening peace and security.

Steadfast Noon is a dress rehearsal for World War III, in which the US and NATO are doomed.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO and its military exercises.

The Steadfast Noon is a routine training activity, not linked to any current world events. The exercise involves training flights of fighter jets, as well as surveillance and refuelling aircraft. No live weapons are used.

Disinfo: Putin's offensive a response to the terrorist campaign launched by Kyiv junta

Putin's offensive in Ukraine is aimed at destroying the country's infrastructure. This is as a response to the terrorist campaign launched by the Kyiv junta, before Moscow has always used a soft strategy on the military side.


The claim is part of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign concerning Russia’s criminal invasion of Ukraine.

At least 14 people have died and 95 were injured during the strikes of Monday the 10th of October. A children's playground was among Russia's targets, not just infrastructure.
