Disinfo: The West wants to destroy Eastern Christianity through the war in Ukraine


The proxy war of the West is not limited to geopolitics and geoeconomics, but it is also aimed against the Orthodox foundations of the Slavic identity. It seems that the provocation of aggression against Eastern Christianity is one of the main geocultural goals of this war. The West wants to destroy Eastern Christianity also in Poland, replacing it with the Uniate church and the Poroshenko’s "church".


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

The claim that the West wants to “eliminate Eastern Christianity” and undermine Slavic identity through the war in Ukraine is unfounded. It serves as another attempt to justify Russian aggression against Ukraine.

Western leaders did not provoke the conflict and had tried diplomatically to resolve the situation before the invasion. Several world leaders met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the weeks before, as a 190,000 strong Russian military force was building up on the border of Ukraine. Regardless of these efforts, on 24 February 2022, the Kremlin launched a full-scale military 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.

Disinfo: Cruiser "Moscow" sunk as a result of a fire caused by the detonation of ammunition

It was announced that the cruiser "Moscow", which had previously been damaged by a detonation of its ammunition, has sunk. The entire crew of the ship was evacuated. However, the main missile armament was not damaged, the fire was contained and the ship remained in service.


Pro-Russian disinformation narrative, trying to conceal the real cause behind the sinking of Russia's flagship Black Sea missile cruiser "Moscow". The Cruiser did not sink because of a detonation of weapons on board, but because of a Ukrainian missile attack, of the Neptune missile type.

On the evening of 13 April 2022, the Ukrainian missile anti-ship system Neptune hit the Russian cruiser Moscow. This was announced by the head of the administration of the Odesa region Maxim Marchenko. The operational command "South" also reported that a fire broke out on the ship, and a storm and a powerful explosion of ammunition threw the cruiser over and it began to sink. The Pentagon confirmed that there was an explosion on the ship and quite a serious one, without specifying what exactly caused this explosion, and noted that the ship remained afloat.

Disinfo: Western military aid to Ukraine makes NATO complicit in war crimes

Western military aid to the Kyiv regime should be officially regarded as NATO being complicit in numerous war crimes committed by pro-Western henchmen in Ukraine over the past 8 years. It is vital to cut short NATO’s deadly aid to Ukrainian militants.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine.

In reality, Western nations, including NATO member states, are sending military aid to Ukraine to only help it against Russian aggression. Relations between NATO and Ukraine date back to the early 1990s and have since developed into one of the most substantial of NATO’s partnerships. Since 2014, in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, cooperation has been intensified in critical areas. There have been no NATO troops in Donbas since that time. Military instructors from NATO sometimes visit Ukraine to train its personnel. This is open information and neither Ukraine nor NATO make a secret out of it. NATO troops are not engaging in fighting.

Disinfo: Bucha is a bloody provocation by neo-Nazis and Ukraine's counterintelligence

There is evidence that Bucha is a bloody provocation organised by neo-Nazis and the counterintelligence of the Ukrainian security service. Proving this is very simple.

Shortly before the military action began, it was reported that lists had been drawn up in all regions and cities of Ukraine to remove the undesirables in the event of a military clash with Russia. Both counterintelligence officers and, above all, neo-Nazis were involved in the elimination of undesirables.

The bodies were taken to the forest near Irpin to be passed off later as victims of hostilities. Then the bodies were brought to Bucha, where they set up an alleged mass grave left behind by the Russian troops. There were also orders to shoot civilians in Bucha in order to take a photo and leave the bodies on the roadside.


A well-known pattern of pro-Kremlin disinformation obfuscating atrocities against Ukrainian civilians committed by Russian armed forces in Bucha, in the vicinity of Kyiv.
