Disinfo: Ukraine has become a vassal of Germany

Summary

Ukraine has become a vassal of Germany.

It reflects the basically colonial system of the geopolitical chain of vassals and overlords that exists in the world. The USA gives Germany direct commands. But the Germans also behave in the same way towards Ukraine; supposedly they know better what should be right for the country. That is the purpose of the current geopolitical system, and that cannot be said out loud in Europe.

Disproof

No evidence provided. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the EU and US relations with Ukraine and Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a sovereign state. Neither US, nor the EU countries in general or Germany in particular control Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, but were violated by Russia in 2014.

Moreover, Germany is very keen to see a stable, democratic and economically flourishing Ukraine. The German Government is assisting Ukraine’s transition to a market economy and its efforts to move closer to European structures. In the wake of Russia’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in contravention of international law and in light of the military conflict in eastern Ukraine that has claimed large numbers of victims, Germany is seeking to reach a peaceful settlement of the crisis in close cooperation with its European and international partners, especially within the framework of what is known as the Normandy format (Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia).

For the EU countries Ukraine is a priority partner. In June 2014, EU and Ukraine signed an Association Agreement, including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), which promotes deeper political ties, stronger economic links and the respect for common values.

American "Deep State" strikes, NATO is a part of it

The American “Deep State” strikes. NATO has links to it.

The book “The Deep State Strikes” aims to shed light on the dark sides of world and background politics. This volume contains several guest articles and deals critically with the activities of the so-called “Deep State”. “This is also called ‘Permanent Bureaucracy’ or ‘Permanent Government’ and is completely independent of democratic elections”.

In this book, former air force officer of the German Armed Forces Jochen Scholz analyses the USA in its current state of world politics as a “tumbling hegemon in aggression mode”.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Western hegemony and belligerent West.

The idea of a "deep state" has always been very popular among conspiracy theorists. Its manifestations might be different, but generally the concept conjures up the image of a small group of men, deciding the fate of the world behind the scenes.

NATO considers Russia an enemy and develops Cold War era thinking

NATO considers Russia an enemy and develops Cold War era thinking.

In the meantime a new opponent has been reinvented: Russia. NATO is playing the old Cold War game. Russia had to serve as an old enemy again.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, portraying NATO as having belligerent agenda against Russia.

Since the end of the Cold War, NATO has introduced sweeping changes to its membership and working practices – changes made clear by its adoption of new Strategic Concepts in 1999 and 2010. Accusations that NATO has retained its Cold War purpose ignore the reality of those changes.
