Disinfo: The West is waging a campaign of Russophobia and hatred

Summary

The West is waging a campaign of Russophobia and hatred towards Russia.

Disproof

Accusing others in Russophobia is common in pro-Kremlin media and the reasons can be for example child custody or education. But sometimes even the salvation of mankind comes into play.

Regarding politics, in 2010 the EU and Russia launched a Partnership for Modernisation. As stated in the Joint Declaration: "The European Union and Russia, as long-standing strategic partners in a changing multipolar world, are committed to working together to address common challenges with a balanced and result-oriented approach, based on democracy and the rule of law, both at the national and international level."

Western propaganda is spread by big Western media agencies

A Swiss media study has confirmed that Western propaganda is spread by three big Western media agencies, namely, Associated Press, Agence France-Presse and Reuters.

Disproof

The quoted study exists, however its authors cannot be found, neither the owner of the website that published it.

Western news agencies operate independently from national governments.
