Disinfo: The West is pursuing an absolutely unfriendly and hostile policy towards Russia


Russia has imposed sanctions against the heads of the European Parliament and the prosecutor's office in Berlin. This is a response to those absolutely unfriendly and sometimes even hostile actions that we see from the collective West. The West is pursuing one seditious thought, accusing Russia of increasing escalation, saying that it was through Russia's actions that the deterioration and degradation of bilateral relations began. But this is not true. We have not done anything that could provoke such actions on the part of our Western partners. This is purposeful, as we now understand it, and, apparently, a long-planned policy towards the Russian Federation.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the West's aggressive Russophobic policy and allegedly belligerent and hostile agenda against Russia.

The EU and Russia have committed to upholding and respecting the fundamental values and principles of democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the market economy. Russia remains a natural partner for the EU and a strategic player combating the regional and global challenges. The EU’s approach to Russia is guided by five principles agreed in 2016 and reaffirmed, most recently, by EU Foreign Ministers in October 2020. Read more about the EU-Russia relations here.

Тhe EU imposed restrictive measures, including sectoral sanctions, as a result of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, while formats such as regular high-level dialogues and cooperation remain suspended in the absence of the full implementation of the Minsk agreements by Russia. A number of additional issues affect bilateral relations, including Russia’s actions in the EU’s Eastern Neighbourhood, Syria, Libya and elsewhere, and repeated malign activities, including disinformation campaigns.

See other case claiming that the West is trying to eliminate Russia as a geopolitical actor under the pretext of "human rights", EU has been deliberately breaking relations with Russia, that the West is trying to make Russia “obedient” and “comfortable” or the EU want to make Russia a semy-colony that The goal of the West is for Russia to cease to exist, and that The West was trying to crush Russia.

Disinfo: The Pentagon has launched a compulsory vaccination campaign among the US military

While the American public avoids US vaccines, the Pentagon has launched a forced and compulsory vaccination campaign among the US military that is facing massive resistance.


The article’s claims are consistent with a pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign aimed at discrediting US and Western vaccines and vaccination efforts.

It is not true that the American public is avoiding US vaccines, nor that the Pentagon has launched a compulsory vaccination campaign among the US military.

Disinfo: Zelenskyy mounts escalation in Donbas to draw Biden’s attention

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is mounting escalation in Donbas to draw the attention of US President Joe Biden.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin media, claiming that Ukraine fulfils orders from the United States and NATO and that the West is using Ukraine as a bridgehead for an attack on Russia. In reality, Ukraine closely cooperates with the United States, the European Union and NATO, but this does not mean that what pro-Kremlin media call “the collective West” is pushing Kyiv into direct confrontation against Moscow. Ukraine’s Western partners are helping Ukraine stop the bloodshed in Donbas and alleviate the suffering of civilians in the war zone. They were mediators when the Minsk Agreements were signed in 2014 and 2015.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived in Kyiv on 5 May 2021. He said in a tweet:

Disinfo: Czechia is ruled by American and British intelligence agencies

(The Czech Republic has now announced the results of the investigations into the 2014 explosion) ... because the authority in Czechia and its security services are subordinate to the American and British agencies.

Czechia has now taken this step after it responded to American pressure and dictates because it couldn't say no. It is known .. that Czech intelligence is directly subordinate to its American counterpart, not to President Milos Zeman.

It is clear that the Czech Republic today cannot take its own decisions and is not independent and that is why its relationship with Russia has deteriorated. And now its relationship is following a path dictated by the West, especially the United States of America.


An unsubstantiated pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Vrbětice ammunition warehouse bombings in the Czech Republic, attempting to ridicule the revelations about the GRU's involvement by launching groundless claims that the actions of Prague were due to Western and US pressure.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and the temporary Minister of Foreign Affairs Jan Hamáček announced on 17 April 2021 that the Czech intelligence services collected evidence demonstrating Russian involvement in the 2014 Vrbětice explosion.
