Disinfo: The west is craving for lewdness


American diplomats raised the gay flag on their country’s embassy building in Moscow … coinciding with the start of the vote on a package of constitutional amendments, including “protecting the institution of marriage as a union between men and women.”

The West has turned to new sodom in its craving for lewdness.


This message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the moral decay of the West and the propaganda of the morally corrupt West, aiming to encourage Russophobia.

The British and U.S. embassies in the Russian capital both flew rainbow flags to celebrate Pride Month, along with a joint statement from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States calling to “protect the rights of all its citizens, including sexual minorities… as expressed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.

On 17 Jun 2011, The United Nations issued its first condemnation of discrimination against gay, lesbian and transgender people. On 26 September 2014, The UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution to combat violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. 

According to these narratives, the liberal societies of the West are depravedthey seek to destroy traditional values and to promote deviant sexual behaviour.

Read similar cases claiming that Western societies are decadent, worship money and are devoted to the obsessive search for pleasure and that  Western Europe is moving away from its Christian roots and is dominated by materialism and the pursuit of money.

The Polish Government denies the political will of the population of Crimea

The Government of the Law and Justice Party has not given up not a single issue,  which prevents normalisation of relations between Kyiv and Moscow – primarily, it continues to deny the political will of the population of Crimea [Referendum of 2014].


Recurrent disinformation about the illegal annexation of Crimea.

The so-called referendum was organised under Russian illegal occupation without complying with neither the Ukrainian electoral code nor the Russia electoral code. The annexation has been condemned by the UNGA (see the resolution A/RES/68/262 on the territorial integrity of Ukraine).
No international body recognises the so-called referendum, announced on 27 February 2014 and held on 16 March 2014. A year after the illegal annexation, Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted that the plan to annex Crimea was ordered weeks before the so-called referendum.
The Polish authorities have repeatedly stated that the Russian “referendum” organised in the occupied Crimea was illegal. The Polish Government urges Russia to stop the military occupation of Crimea.

Polish President is completely submissive to the “golden-haired alpha male with a red tie”

In the end, something good resulted from a mostly embarrassing visit of President Duda to the Big Brother. Clearly, it is a statement that “there are absolutely no plans to move the American nuclear weapons to Poland”. Taking into consideration the submission of the Head of the Polish state towards the golden-haired alpha male with a red tie, if Trump wanted to send the nuclear weapons to Poland (which the Germans want to get rid of) – we could have appeared in a truly tragic situation.


A common pro-Kremlin narrative on “lost sovereignty” - in the case of Poland, this country is often presented as a “puppet-state” of the United States, which fully controls the domestic and foreign policy of this country.

The statement that the Polish President is submissive to Donald Trump, so much so that he will implement any “order” from him is a conspiracy theory.

The US empire staged a secret coup in Ukraine in 2014

The US empire staged a secret coup in Ukraine in 2014.

According to the Swiss historian Daniele Ganser, the US empire there (in Ukraine), in accordance with the strategy of ‘divide and rule’, stirred up tension and in 2014 overthrew the government in a secret coup. But he says it is rarely said in public that Obama has staged a coup in Ukraine.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's statehood which claims that the Euromaidan protests were organised by foreign forces.

There was no coup d’état in 2014. The spontaneous onset of massive Euromaidan protests was a reaction of the Ukrainian population to the sudden departure of President Yanukovych from the Association Agreement with the European Union and to the brutal dispersal of student protest actions on 30 November 2013.
