Disinfo: The West favors and supports Ukrainian fascists and Islamic terrorists


Ukrainian neo-Nazism and Islamic State in the Middle East are two sides of Washington’s terrorist plan against a multipolar world order. The West favors both Ukrainian fascists and radical Islamists, i.e. terrorists. Al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood were established by US and UK security services. Washington has provided informational, diplomatic and military support for radical groups in Libya and Syria. The US, Israel, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia also support Al-Nusra terrorist group.

In fact, capitalism and terrorism have deep historic relations. West’s colonial policies are an illustration of terrorist essence of capitalism. Hence the whole rhetoric of Western establishment about the struggle against the international terrorism is a mystification, because of the close link between capitalism and terrorism.



Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Western-sponsored terrorism and Nazi Ukraine.

The disinformation message is consistent with broader conspiracy theory alleging that the United States and its NATO partners have established many terrorist organisations and control global terrorism.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Ukraine is a Neo-Nazi state, the West has always been barbaric and similar to ISIS, that the US is behind the creation of ISIS/Daesh, the West is a terrorist structure, and that the US and EU countries support Russophobic, neofascist, terrorist political parties and movements in the post-Soviet space.

Ukraine was reluctant to achieve peace in Donbas

Over the last five years, the conflict [in Donbas] has not been resolved not because of the position of the “DPR” and “LPR”, but because of Kyiv’s reluctance to achieve a peaceful settlement.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the Minsk agreements and the War in Ukraine.

Former and current presidents of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko and Volodymyr Zelenskyy, have made it clear that the strategic goal of Ukraine is to achieve peace in Donbas in the shortest possible term. Over the last five years, the Ukrainian government has tried to achieve the complete ceasefire via negotiations in the Minsk and Normandy formats. Ukraine has also proposed to send peacekeeping forces to Donbas.

Poland contributed to the genocide of Christians in the Middle East

The present-day Polish politicians criticising the Red Army’s soldiers, evade responsibility for participating in wars in the Middle East, which destroys peace in that region. The politicians of the Law and Justice Party denying the Red Army’s role in the fight against Hitler can be burdened with guilt for the wars in the Middle East, supporting the USA and NATO. In the future, Poland may have to compensate military damage to countries such as Iraq. Poland has contributed to the genocide of Christians taking place in the Middle East as a consequence of the wars in this region carried out with the participation of the USA and NATO.


This message includes two separate disinformation narratives. The first narrative is part of the Kremlin’s policy of historical revisionism (accusing Poland of falsifying and re-writing its history as it states that the USSR and the Red Army occupied this country at the end of WWII). The second narrative includes various anti-US and anti-NATO conspiracy claims, accusing them of committing various crimes and atrocities all over the World.

According to official Polish historical policy, opinions of mainstream Polish historians and attitudes of a predominant part of the Polish society, the Red Army occupied Poland in 1944-45, causing the undemocratic establishment of Communist Poland.

Russia is not mentioned in Minsk Agreements

Sanctions against Russia were imposed under the pretext of the events in Ukraine. The West says, if Russia wants the EU to lift sanctions, it should fulfill the Minsk agreements. But Russia is not mentioned in the agreement. Russia is the member of Normandy Four, which formed the framework of the Minsk agreement.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukraine and the Minsk agreements. Also consistent with the narrative about the US global role.

The narrative claims that Russia is not part of the conflict in Donbas and that Russia has nothing to do with the war in eastern Ukraine.
