Disinfo: The USA promotes the cult of Nazi collaborators throughout Eastern Europe to spread its military presence in the region


All countries of Eastern Europe, which have joined NATO (Poland, Baltic states) or which aspire to join NATO (Ukraine), are facing the emergence of the cult of Nazi collaborators. In Latvia, they have a cult of the Latvian SS division. This Nazification process has the most advanced character in Ukraine.

The strategic interest of the USA is to spread its influence in Eastern Europe in order to construct in this region its military bases and sell expensive arms (such as F-35) – that is why it is necessary to promote all possible Russophobic forces. Hitler’s collaborators are promoted within this strategy.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link the Baltic countries, Ukraine, and Poland with NazismFascism, and anti-Semitism. The accusation of Nazism is a popular propaganda technique used by pro-Kremlin outlets as explained in our following analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest.

The statement that the USA allegedly promotes “the cult of Nazi collaborators” throughout Eastern Europe in order to spread its military interests is an evident conspiracy theory and a part of the Kremlin’s efforts aimed at discredit NATO and the US military presence in Eastern and Central Europe.

As other examples of this narrative, read the debunking of the claim that the European Union is a Nazi Project here. In addition, see similar disinformation cases such as Europe is becoming Nazi againBaltic states openly glorify Nazism, Poles are stoking nationalist sentiment in Ukraine in order to annex Kyiv and the EU continues aggressive policies of Nazi Germany.

The EP Resolution aims to minimize the role of the USSR’s in WWII

Today, the role of the USSR [in WWII] is ignored and relentlessly minimized. Recently, the EU Parliament adopted a frightening Resolution, which is a part of the campaign aimed at the reduction of the role of the USSR [in WWII]. Historians cannot ignore this situation. It is an anti-historical process, which harms the historical truth.


This message is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism and an attempt to portray Russia's role in World War II as not aggressive. Recently, pro-Kremlin media has been actively spreading various disinformation messages about the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

The European Parliament resolution on the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe stressed the fact that WWII was an immediate result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The resolution is aimed at the promotion of historical remembrance about WWII and condemnation of totalitarian ideologies.

Trump ordered 250 US soldiers to spread Coronavirus two months before the virus outbreak in Wuhan

There are big question marks about the spread of the disease (Coronavirus) in countries opposing or competing with the United States of America.

Two months prior to the Coronavirus outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan, there were American health exercises in which 250 American soldiers participated. There are talks that the Americans may have spread the virus, and there are those who say that (US President Donald) Trump is the one who gave orders to spread this epidemic.


Recurring conspiracy theories that echo pro-Kremlin disinformation about coronavirus. The narratives also resemble a recurring conspiracy theory about the Lugar Lab in Georgia.

Apart from the American soldiers, there were, in fact, 17 teams with over 280 athletes and staff in the Military World Games that was held from October 18–27, 2019 in the capital of Hubei Province in Wuhan. The Coronavirus started to spread 65 days after the closing ceremony of the Military World Games, and so far there is no evidence to prove any connection between the two events.

The Istanbul Convention invents new human species

The Istanbul Convention invents new human species, in which the gender of the person is defined socially and even politically.

When the Romanians will finally wake up, they will see not only that they are indebted to foreign banks for ten generations, but also that their offspring are no longer boys or girls, as they thought, but what the Istanbul Convention wants: socially manipulable genetic material as the state tells them to be. Not the Romanian state, which has long been dissolved, but the global state.


A recurring disinformation narrative about the Western values and the Istanbul Convention. See a related disinformation case alleging that the Istanbul convention will destroy a traditional Armenian family.

The Istanbul Convention (Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention and Combating of Violence against Women and Domestic Violence) is a treaty according to which the signatory states will adopt appropriate laws and take measures to punish, combat and eliminate all forms of violence against women and domestic violence.
