Ukraine needs war, it needs to preserve its anti-Russian project. It won’t survive without it.
An aggressive information campaign is going on against Russia [by the West]. On its side, Russia doesn’t wage information attacks. It has never done anything bad to anyone in the information field. Russians have simply learned how to respond.
This claim is in line with the common pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative that Russia is innocent and a victim of Western aggression and Russophobia. There is no campaign of "informational aggression" against Russia in Western media. Western media represent a wide range of opinions and do not follow a single editorial policy on any given topic. There is extensive evidence documenting the Kremlin's efforts to use disinformation as a weapon. Russia's attempts at interfering in democratic processes in the US and Europe have been thoroughly documented. In 2018, to protect its democratic systems and public debates and in view of the 2019 European elections as well as a number of national and local elections, the EU presented an Action Plan against Disinformation to step up efforts to counter disinformation in Europe and beyond. The Action Plan proposes a set of actions that should enable a joint and coordinated EU approach to addressing disinformation, primarily stemming from Russia.
