Summary of Disinformation

The West has designed a strategic plan with the aim to erase Russia as a subject of the world politics: dividing it into small quasi-states and ensuring the role of the US as the world police.

Disproof

No evidence given. There is in fact 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 unfortunately suspended due to Russia's involvement in the Ukraine conflict. In 1997, Russia was invited to join the G7 group of major advanced economies in the world, thus forming the G8. The EU supported and welcomed Russia's accession to the World Trade Organization in 2012, after 18 years of negotiations bit.ly/2e3tg6m. NATO has also consistently worked hard 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.
