The West's vision of the world politics has been built on Russophobia

Summary of Disinformation

Western bodies – perhaps except the US Congress – are all tired of this all-encompassing Russophobia. The West’s vision of world politics has been built on Russophobia at least for the last five years.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia. The message implies that the West's policy on Russia, including introduction of sanctions, were a result of a fundamental dislike of Russia or Russians rather than of blatant violations of international law by Russia, foremost when it comes to the annexation of Crimea and substantial support to separatists in the east of Ukraine.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the US and EU countries are russophobic, fascist and Nazi regimes, and that the US and the UK are using Skripal case to start a crusade against Russia.
