Disinfo: The West established a Russophobic Nazi regime in Ukraine, and now it targets Belarus


A real hybrid war is being waged against Belarus and Russia, aimed to bring discord in Belarus-Russia relations. A similar war previously targeted Ukraine-Russia relations; and that war brought the West a partial victory. As a result of it, a Russophobic neo-Nazi regime was established in Ukraine.

At present the West targets the common history, culture, and language that Belarus and Russia share. Attempts to glorify the white-red-white flag and to falsify history are not accidental either. It is clear that an anti-Russian project “New Rzeczpospolita” is unrealistic without Belarus as a part. Hence, curators of Belarusian protests are mostly located in Vilnius and Warsaw, the two main centers which manage the destabilising events in Belarus. Destructive actions are used by the followers of those who incited Nazi Germany against the USSR in the past.


This article combines a number of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the aggressive West, its attempts and organise colour revolutions in the post-Soviet space, about the West's activities to disrupt Belarus-Russia ties, about Russophobia and Nazis/Fascists in Ukraine. This publication is also a telling example of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation method to paint groundless parallels between Nazi Germany and policies of the present-time western countries. It is aligned with the narrative about Nazis in the EU, which has been repeatedly debunked.

The myth of Nazi-ruled Russophobic Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy.

The so called "New Rzeczpospolita" project is a conspiracy which fitscinto the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Polish imperial policies and aggressive plans towards Belarus. There is no evidence that Poland, Lithuania or any other Western governments have been involved in organising and funding the protests in Belarus, nor that they are conducting any activities aimed at destabilising Belarus.

The large-scale protests in Belarus began in Minsk on August 9, 2020 against the results of the presidential election, and then spread to other cities. People revolted against election fraud and police violence against thousands of rally participants. The European Council condemned the violence against peaceful protesters and announced that it would soon adopt a list of sanctions for those responsible for violence in Belarus. A European Council press release stated that "As the elections in Belarus were neither free nor fair, and did not meet international standards, the EU does not recognise the results presented by the Belarus authorities".

Read similar cases alleging that pro-Western civil society in Ukraine and Belarus is a fascist fifth column, that Europe supports the revival of fascism, that the war against Donbas people is waged by successors of the Hitlerites, and that West’s hybrid war against Belarus is preparation for an attack against Russia.

Disinfo: Kyiv is breaking Minsk and Normandy agreements

Kyiv is not implementing the Minsk and Normandy agreements. Its reputation is close to zero and its position is cynical and irresponsible. The situation in the war zone is deteriorating and Ukraine may stage a provocation, which would increase military confrontation.


This a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin media, accusing Kyiv of non-adherence to the 2014 Minsk Agreements and the 2019 Normandy accords.

In reality, Moscow-backed separatists have been mounting tensions in Donbas over the recent weeks under the pretext that Ukrainian troops are planning an offensive. Four Ukrainian soldiers were killed on 26 March 2021, which is the largest daily death toll for government troops since the fragile truce that took effect last July. Nonetheless, Moscow and its proxies in Donbas keep on accusing Kyiv of continually breaking the truce and preparing for a full-scale attack.

Disinfo: We have yet to prove global warming is real

All this talk of global warming, which is allegedly caused by human activity, has yet to be proven. The Earth's climate is constantly changing, and moreover, we are now living in a short period of warming between the two ice ages, and there are plenty of reasons to be assured that the climate will be cooler in the coming centuries. This is a real threat to humanity.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that climate change might not have been caused by human activity.

It is not true that science does not possess evidence of human impact on climate change. On the contrary, there is a strong consensus among publishing climate scientists that humans are responsible for climate change.

Disinfo: There is no political will in Poland to normalise its relations with Russia

In order to normalise bilateral relations, Poland should react to the Russian appeals for dialogue and mutual respect not in words but in deeds. There are no insurmountable obstacles to the normalisation of Polish-Russian relations. All the existing problems can be solved if there is political will on both sides. However, at the present moment, Russia does not see this political will on the part of Poland.


This message is a part of the Kremlin’s widespread narrative about anti-Russian, Russophobic Poland, deliberately worsening its relations with Russia and supporting American interests in the region.

The arrival of a new Polish Ambassador to Moscow illustrates that Poland is interested in having normal diplomatic relations with Russia. On 28 March 2021, the new Polish Ambassador to Russia gave an interview to Russian media, where he stated that Poland was open to dialogue with Russia. The Polish authorities have repeatedly stated that Poland is willing to improve its relations with Russia – on the condition that Russia starts observing the regulations of international law. In a statement of 21 December 2019, the Polish authorities reiterated their openness to continue the historical dialogue with Russia, for example, through restarting the work of the bilateral Group on Difficult Issues.
