DISINFO: The West is the real enemy of Russia, Ukraine and Poland


It is important to understand that the responsibility for the bloodshed [in Ukraine] falls primarily on the West, encouraging and forcing Ukraine into aggression against Donbas and Russia. The common enemy of the Ukrainians, the Russians and the Poles is the West, especially the USA and the UK, which clash these brother nations with each other.

The conflict in Ukraine is very favourable for Western elites – they will use it to prolong the emergency state (justified before by the COVID-19 pandemic, which suddenly disappeared). The war propaganda and the rise of militaristic aspirations will be used to postpone the inevitable collapse of global capitalism.

The West is falling into totalitarian and fascist realities, standing against the traditional values of Slavic and Eurasian solidarity. The new Iron Curtain and the Western hunts for the pro-Russian witches will become permanent phenomena.


Pro-Kremlin disinformation claim about the war in Ukraine and the Russian invasion of Ukraine unleashed on February 24, 2022.

In 2021, Russia started a large-scale military build-up near the border with eastern Ukraine, generating great concern in Ukraine, Europe and across the world.

On 21 February 2022, after weeks of extreme tensions, President Vladimir Putin decided to recognise the non-government controlled areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts (administrative regions) in Ukraine as independent entities and to send Russian troops into these areas. This followed a positive vote by the Russian State Duma (the lower house of the Russian parliament) on 15 February.

On 24 February 2022, Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine.

The EU condemned in the strongest possible terms Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine and imposed the toughest restrictive measures on Russia. Read more about the EU response and support for Ukraine.
