Disinfo: The USA is raising imperialistic Poland as a new hyena for Europe


The Americans are ready to fight not only against the Ukrainians – they persistently put pressure on the "young NATO members" such as Poland to push them towards direct involvement in the developments in Ukraine. The USA approves the absurd Polish fantasies about the new Rzeczpospolita [the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth], turning a blind eye to the inhuman and racist statements of the Polish elite and the spread of nationalist sentiments. In fact, the US is raising a new hyena for Europe.


This message is a part of the Kremlin’s widespread narrative about the US presence in Europe, alleging that the United States controls the foreign policy of EU member states, pushing them to a conflict with Russia.

Poland, the USA and the other NATO members do not have any hostile plans toward Russia.

The so-called "New Rzeczpospolita" project is a conspiracy theory that fits into the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Polish imperial policies and aggressive plans towards Ukraine and Belarus. Poland fully supports the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine and Belarus, it does not have any territorial claims against its neighbours and it rejects any “imperial” ambitions towards other countries.

See other cases of disinformation claiming that Vilnius and Warsaw planned to create a new Polish Empire on the ashes of Belarus; the US feeds Polish, Austrian, and Hungarian imperialistic ambitions and Polish authorities are obsessed with the idea of reconstruction of a modern Polish empire.

Disinfo: Demonstrators in Brussels condemn NATO

Demonstrators in a massive protest against high living costs in the heart of the EU yelled “Stop NATO!”. Dozens of thousands took part in the protest, and many linked the crisis with the West's policies on Russia. Besides expressing their anger for the rise of living costs in Belgium, many condemned the NATO alliance led by the US and its participation in the conflict of Ukraine.


The claim is false.

The demonstration that took place in Brussels on 20 June 2022 was organised by labour unions to call the Belgian government to take action to tackle inflation and rise wages, and although it can’t be ruled out that some anti-NATO protesters could have taken part on it, the protest was ostensibly unrelated to the conflict in Ukraine.

Disinfo: NATO uses Ukraine to assert itself and its imperial ambitions

NATO uses Ukraine to assert itself, its imperial ambitions and its hegemony. The West is not interest in the well-being of Ukraine and Ukrainian people, it only uses Ukraine to expand its selfish interests.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that the West is disrupting peace efforts in Ukraine and that its real aim is to spread its influence in the region to the detriment of Russian interests.

In reality, Western leaders have been repeatedly calling for talks and a peaceful solution to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine, but Moscow has been ignoring these efforts. The West is not nurturing any imperial ambitions in Ukraine, nor is it striving to spread its hegemony in the region. The fact that Western nations, including NATO member states, are supplying Ukraine with arms means that they are eager to help Kyiv restore its territorial integrity. Any further advancement of Ukrainian troops into internationally recognised Russian territory is out of the question.

Disinfo: West prolongs war in Ukraine by providing it with arms and political support

The West continues to whip up tension, artificially prolonging the special military operation by providing not only military aid to Kyiv but also, of course, political support. This is the decision of the EU summit which took place on 23 and 24 of June on granting Ukraine candidate status for its membership in the European Union.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets accusing the West of encouraging militaristic moods in Ukraine. This claim was made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

In reality, the West is supplying Kyiv with weapons to help it repel the Russian aggression. Ukraine is using Western arms with the sole aim of restoring its territorial integrity within the internationally recognised borders including the peninsula of Crimea and the occupied areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk Regions. Ukraine has no plans to move further into Russia and occupy any Russian territory.
