Unlike Russia, the West degrades traditional values and endangers societies

Summary of Disinformation

Western media describe Russia is a danger to Western “liberal democracy”. But the West puts all efforts in degrading and discrediting traditional values, the deliberate rejection of these values and the transition to fictional, unstable and malignant structures, pseudo-values, which endanger society. The Russian system of values, although different from the Western one, is something that should be sought. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the right-wing parties in the West want to cooperate with Russia.



Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at portraying the West as depraved, an immoral actor fighting against traditional values and endangering societies. The idea of Moscow being the protector of traditional values is not new and is part of the notion of Moscow being the Third Rome.

'Threatened values' is one of the most common narratives used by pro-Kremlin outlets.
