A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about US disintegration. The article also contains the broader pro-Kremlin narrative about the decadence of the West, which is allegedly collapsing. This narrative describes the liberal West as a materialistic, immoral, corrupt and perverted society that subverts traditional values, often depicting LGBT+ rights movements as the most emblematic expression of Western decadence.
There is no factual evidence to support the article’s apocalyptic claim that the US will “probably end” because of the way it withdrew from Afghanistan. Nor is there any evidence to support the article’s suggestion that Western civilisation “has gone mad” because of concern in Western societies about the rights of LGBT+ people.
Pro-Kremlin outlets often use gender-based narratives targeting LGBTI+ people. Such narratives lie at the heart of the Kremlin’s self-identification as a global force opposed to a decadent and morally corrupt West – positioning Russia as the protector of traditional values (such as the conventional family) and as the saviour of European civilisation.
Predictions about a US civil war or disintegration of the US, caused by moral collapse, racial conflicts, or other factors, have been a common pro-Kremlin narrative since the fall of the Soviet Union and have been increasingly emphasised by various pro-Kremlin outlets since the 2020 racial justice protests in the US and the US presidential elections. The theme of US disintegration is again re-emerging in pro-Kremlin outlets in connection with the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Read similar cases claiming that the US could collapse after withdrawal from Afghanistan just like USSR collapsed after it withdrew from the country, that the US government and military are conducting a cultural war against traditional American values, and that The US is collapsing, it is no longer neither a country nor a nation
