The West is dehumanizing Russia, in the same way like the Nazis were dehumanizing the Jews, in order to turn Russia into a symbol of Evil

Summary of Disinformation

This might be preparation for the final solution of the Russian question one way or another. If you want to destroy someone, you must turn him into an absolute symbol of Evil. They turned Saddam Hussein into that. Turned Milosevic. Now, like that, they are not dehumanizing Putin. They are dehumanizing Russia. In today’s Western propaganda, we are an absolute Evil, like the Jews were for the Nazis! And it wasn’t an accident that [the West] brought Ukrainian Nazis to power. This is a real preparation for the aggression [against Russia].

Recurring disinformation. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/report/the-west-is-dehumanising-russia-the-same-way-hitler-used/

Both the EU and NATO have a long record of cooperation with Russia. Despite current difficulties in the relationship with Russia, 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.

As for the ‘Nazis in Ukraine’, Democratic, competitive and generally well-organised presidential and parliamentary elections were held in 2014 and local elections in 2015. The EU welcomed this progress. The OSCE, which observed all these elections on the ground, characterised the Presidential elections (report http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/119078?download=true) as showing the "clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms." According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook "increasing attempts to derail the process." The OSCE characterised the 2014 parliamentary elections (report http://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/126043) as "an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms".
