The West is not about fairness or solidarity, its priority value is egoism

Summary of Disinformation

Fairness, mutual support, and solidarity are important values of the space that Belarus and Russia belong to. This is a notable difference from the West where individual egoism is at the top.


This message is ungrounded generalisation containing a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the West's moral decay aimed at portraying Russia and the so-called Russian world as superior to the West in terms of values and morals. 'Threatened values' is one of the most common narratives used by pro-Kremlin outlets.

See earlier cases alleging that in contrast to Russia, western Europe is abandoning Christian roots and that unlike Russia, the West degrades traditional values and endangers societies.
