Summary

The West has always despised Russia and has always been trying to teach her a lesson.

Disproof

There is a clear record of strong cooperation between the EU and Russia, dating back to 1994, when the two sides negotiated a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement. Russia was identified as a strategic partner for the EU, and was the only country with which the EU held summits not once, but twice a year. A new EU-Russia agreement was being negotiated up until 2014, at which point talks were suspended due to Russia's involvement in the Ukraine conflict. Negotiations were also in train on visa facilitation. There was also cooperation between the EU and Russia on a number of foreign policy issues, some of which continues to this day. The EU and its Member States have maintained a clear policy of reaching out to Russian society and youth, mainly through the Erasmus+ student exchange programme and other people to people contacts. // NATO has consistently striven to build a cooperative relationship with Russia since the early 1990s, through the Partnership for Peace and creation of a NATO-Russia Council, and specific cooperation in the Western Balkans on and issues like counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism. No other NATO partner has been offered a comparable relationship, nor a similarly comprehensive institutional framework: bit.ly/2e0TZnG, // Russia has been invited into many other international bodies.

Russian LGBT activists are active because of international grants from Western NGOs, Western embassies and George Soros.

The Baltic states are plotting to attack Russia, shown by the arrival of NATO troops in the Baltics as the largest troop presence in the region since WWII and furthermore all three countries are nearly bankrupt due to their anti-Russia foreign policies.

Disproof

Debunked many times before. The enforcement of the Eastern flank is a response to Russia’s aggressive foreign policy and actions in Ukraine.bit.ly/2iMmGkG, . The economies of the Baltic States have prospered since joining the EU: according to Eurostat, GDP per capita at market prices has grown 45% in EE; 39% in LV & 42% in LT since 2004.
