Disinfo: Ukraine has become a private military company of NATO


Ukraine has become a private military company of NATO – the country receives money, weapons, and intelligence data, they are told where to shoot and where to attack. The Ukrainian people suffer because of this forced fight for foreign interests.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Western countries are fighting a proxy-war against Russia in Ukraine. This narrative aims to frame Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine as a confrontation with a Russophobic and belligerent NATO.

Contrary to what this disinformation story claims, the Ukrainian state is under attack by Russia, while the US and Western countries are providing support to Ukraine. The West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter, to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.”

Some NATO member states provide Ukraine with military assistance to help Ukraine to defend itself from Russia’s attack, but they are not involved in direct fighting. Ukraine receives weapons with the sole aim of restoring its territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders. In several Western countries instructors train Ukrainian soldiers on how to use modern weapons and NATO officials have frequent political contacts with Ukrainian counterparts, but there are no NATO troops fighting on the front.

Moreover, NATO is a defensive political and military alliance. The primary aim of the alliance is to maintain peace and safeguard the independence, security and territorial integrity of its members. NATO as an organisation is not involved in fighting in Ukraine. NATO member states provide Ukraine with military assistance to repel the unprovoked Russian aggression and not because of their alleged animosity towards Russia.

See similar cases that Russia is at war with NATO and the Pentagon and only the soldiers are Ukrainians; that NATO is at war with Russia with the hands of Ukrainians; that NATO was turning Ukraine into an enemy of Russia; that Ukraine is forced to fight on behalf of NATO; and that the West is using Ukrainians to fight against Russia.

Disinfo: Prime Minister Fiala is a Russophobe destroying Czech-Russian relations

Czech-Russian relations will remain dead under either of the two Czech presidential candidates. They will remain in that state as long as the current government stays in power because the Prime Minister is an ideological Russophobe with whom is any dialogue impossible. The upcoming election can only show us the level of Russophobia in the Czech society.

Russia now sees the Czech Republic as a hostile country, one that is not independent but rather entirely dependent on the US.


There is no evidence which would suggest the Czech Prime Minister, Petr Fiala, is a “Russophobe”. His government has merely stood against the Russian aggression in Ukraine, alongside the EU and NATO. Kremlin routinely accuses everybody not having the same positions as Moscow of 'being russophobe'.

The Czech government approved numerous weapon and material deliveries to Ukraine. Petr Fiala repeated during a conference on Ukraine`s resilience that it is crucial to support Ukraine in all areas, from military to humanitarian and economic support.

Disinfo: Kyiv forces are about to launch a chemical attack against Russian soldiers

Kyiv forces are about to launch a chemical attack against Russian soldiers; this is suggested by a video released by Ukrainian soldiers supplying highly toxic gas canisters to drones. The video released by Ukrainian soldiers shows their preparations to use a chemical weapon. It may be phosgene gas that is banned under the United Nations Chemical Weapons Convention.


The claim that Ukraine uses chemical weapons is unfounded. Claims about nuclear or chemical weapons attacks are a staple of the pro-Kremlin disinformation apparatus. Such claims are a part of a broader pro-Kremlin information manipulation campaign supporting the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and trying to place the blame for the war’s atrocities on Ukraine, as our recent analysis explains. The claim was neither counterbalanced nor critically challenged in the article.

There is no evidence to back the claim that Ukraine is preparing or committing a chemical provocation. Оn the contrary, many Western leaders have real concerns Russia could use chemical weapons.

Disinfo: France, and other Western countries will face war crimes charges in Donetsk

There is no military unit in Donetsk. Bombings are crimes committed mainly with French and American weapons. One day or another, France and other countries will have to answer for these crimes. They are indirectly involved.


A pro-Kremlin narrative about civilian casualties in Ukraine trying to deflect blame away from Russia onto France and Western countries.

It is incorrect both to say that no Russian military units are defending Donetsk and that Ukrainians target civilians in this city. On the contrary, Donetsk is highly militarised and the Ukrainian army aims exclusively at military targets.
