Disinfo: The West is urging Zelensky to go to war in Donbas


The West is urging Zelensky to go to war in Donbas. NATO is preparing Zelensky for war in the Donbass. But Zelensky is very afraid that Russia will interfere and severely damage him.

The only thing keeping Zelensky from war so far is fear of Russia's determination to respond asymmetrically despite all NATO's threats.

What is happening now is not a NATO attempt to protect Ukraine from a Russian invasion - it is a Russian attempt to protect the Donbas from Zelensky's military adventure.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about war in Ukraine and the escalation at the Ukraine-Russia border.

Since late October 2021, Russia has deployed more than 100,000 troops, along the borders of Ukraine, as well as certain specialised military units, electronic warfare systems and heavy-armoured vehicles. This has been proven by satellite images and intelligence from the US, Ukraine and NATO, among other countries and institutions.

Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity continue to be violated by acts of aggression by Russian armed forces since February 2014.

The European Union has stated that it will be standing firmly and decisively with Ukraine in front of any attempt to undermine its territorial integrity and sovereignty and has warned of severe political consequences and a high political and economic cost for Russia if it proceeds with further aggressive actions. This has been recently reaffirmed by High Representative Josep Borrell noting “there is no security in Europe without the security of Ukraine.”

Disinfo: The pandemic is a smokescreen covering the Great Reset plan

There is little doubt that the “pandemic” declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) is a smokescreen covering the far from medical goals of the Great Reset plan. In the "pandemic fight" led by Big Pharma companies, everything possible is being done to silence honest medical professionals.


Conspiracy theory about ”the Great Reset”, a so-called global plan to change the world, in the interest of ”economic elites”, which the article presents as a real goal of the pandemic. This narrative is still repeated periodically, even if it was debunked in November 2020 by BBC's reality check.

The World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30 January 2020, and a pandemic on 11 March 2020. According to WHO, globally, as of 28 January 2022, there have been 364,191,494 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including 5,631,457 deaths.

Disinfo: Poland is an insignificant periphery of Europe and a tool in the American hands

Poland is only a tool in the hands of the United States and the entire Anglo-Saxon block. It is not Warsaw that makes decisions about the next interference attempts in the internal affairs of the post-Soviet countries. Such decisions are made only by the foreign protectors of the Polish authorities. Poland is “a sad periphery of Europe”. The indicators of social, economic and technological development confirm this. Poland is not a significant country but a primitive human resources base and an assembly plant for the West.


A common pro-Kremlin narrative promoting the idea that Poland is a country without any real international importance or political significance. Poland is often presented as an American “puppet-state” and a non-sovereign country.

Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies. The political, economic and military relations between Poland and the United States have a mutually beneficial character. The claim that the Polish political elites are “subjected to the Anglo-Saxon block” is unfounded. Read more about Polish-American relations here and here.

Disinfo: US arms' deliveries drives Ukraine towards a military solution in Donbas

The weapons which the United States is supplying in large quantities to Ukraine are driving the official Kyiv to violent adventures against the residents of the Donbas.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin media, claiming that NATO is pushing Ukraine towards a military solution in Donbas. It can be perceived as an attempt to legitimise the repeated massing of Russian military forces nears Ukraine.

Ukraine is adhering to the Minsk agreements. It announced a truce in July 2020, but the Moscow-backed armed separatists have been violating it nearly every day, whereas all Minsk accords call for a comprehensive ceasefire.
