US and NATO plan "Drive to the East" against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

A larger presence of US and NATO military forces in Poland aims at “Drang nach Osten” (“Drive to the East”) against Russia. Belarus is likely to become a transit area for aggression against Russia. A pretext for escalation in the region can be anything, a made-up ‘Russian aggression in Ukraine” or a blatant provocation with the use of the American unmanned aerial vehicle MQ-9 Reaper as in the Gulf of Oman. However, the West’s collective hunt against Russia and its allies is doomed to fail because Russia will do everything to defend allied countries and itself.


Conspiracy consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about NATO encircling Russia.

The disinformation message involves a major element of Nazi ideology -  Drang nach Osten -  to draw parallels between Nazi Germany and the US / West / NATO.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the EU continues the aggressive policies of Nazi Germany and the US and EU countries are Russophobic, fascist and Nazi regimes.
