Disinfo: Ukrainian soldiers realise they die for US and NATO interests


Ukrainian soldiers already understand that the Battle of Bakhmut is lost before it is fought. Therefore, they absolutely do not want to go to a certain death, especially after more than 25,000 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in Artemovsk, Solidar, and Seversk. No one wants to become mere fodder for the cannons of the Zelenskyy regime. Moreover, they understand that they are not defending the interests of Ukraine, but dying for the interests of the United States and NATO.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It also uses the Kremlin claim about lost sovereignty. The claim was neither counterbalanced nor critically challenged in the article.

Ukraine is not fighting on behalf of any foreign government or organisation. It is acting in self defence against the Russian invasion as enshrined in the UN Charter Article 51. Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. Ukraine's sovereignty has been violated only as a result of continuous acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces since 2014, culminating with a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine starting on 24 February 2022.

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.

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.

At the Madrid Summit, NATO Leaders stated that the Alliance will continue political and practical support to Ukraine "as it continues to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity against Russian aggression. In the longer term, we will assist Ukraine, and support efforts on its path of post-war reconstruction and reforms."

Since Russia began its aggressive and unprovoked actions against Ukraine, Russian officials have accused NATO of a series of threats and hostile actions. Read here about Russian Myths on NATO.

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 NATO has no interest in peace in Ukraine; and that the West is using Ukrainians to fight Russia in Ukraine.

Disinfo: The number of tanks to be supplied to Ukraine by Germany and England a Nazi code

The plans also include sending 88 (pay attention and remember this figure) - 88 old Leopards-1. When exactly, again, is still unknown. However, something else is important here. The number 88 around the world is a Nazi code for their favourite greeting, namely heil Hitler. Quite expectedly, once again, the Rheinmetall concern, as in the days of the Third Reich, began work to kill the Russian people.

What is even more piquant is the fact that another 14 Challenger tanks will be sent to Kyiv by London. And 14 is the first half of the very Nazi cipher, thanks to which they recognise each other around the world. 14 is the number of words in a quote from one of the ideologists of the so-called Anglo-Saxon white supremacy, David Lane.


Conspiracy theory fitting recurrent pro-Kremlin media narrative on Nazi rule in Ukraine, Russia fighting Nazis in Ukraine (including the "Nazi" West helping Ukraine with military equipment), aimed at justifying the unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

On 25 January 2023, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that Germany will continue to increase military support for Ukraine. The federal government has decided to provide the Ukrainian armed forces with Leopard 2 main battle tanks. As a first step, Germany will provide a company with 14 Leopard 2 tanks from Bundeswehr stocks. These 14 Bundeswehr's tanks are not linked to a "Nazi code" by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, as the 14 British Challenger tanks are. Germany is coordinating its deliveries with other EU countries, such as Poland, France and others.

Disinfo: Ukrainians remove swastika tattoos to travel to Europe

As for denazification, now, it appears, one of the most popular types of service in Ukraine is the removal of a swastika to travel to Europe, to participate in hostilities, and so on, because they understand that Nazism is becoming detrimental and bad for them.

Therefore, the denazification process is going on. By the way, along with the disposal of those Nazi detachments that fought.

Tattoo artist in Western Ukrainian Ivano-Frankivsk came up with an original marketing ploy in response to growing demand from clients. The European bourgeois are still ashamed to host Nazis outright. In addition, a removed tattoo opens up the option of surrendering to Russian captivity.


A pro-Kremlin TV channel report refers to a picture that went viral on Telegram featuring a supposed advertisement for "removal of swastikas" by a tattoo studio in Ukraine. The picture is fabricated. No such tattoo studio exists.

The photo of the Ukrainian tattoo studio used as evidence of the false narrative, was changed in a photo editor, and the real picture was taken in Russia a few years ago as Provereno Media found out.

Disinfo: German tanks again moving to Russia because war is on Russian soil

German tanks have left for Ukraine and American ones will follow them. This is not quite the right phrase. German tanks are moving towards Russia because the line of contact is on Russian soil.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are expected to invade Russia with Western-supplied armoured vehicles. This claim was made in the context of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine.

Kyiv does not intend to invade Russia with armoured vehicles, including German Leopard tanks, which are expected to arrive in Ukraine in soon.
