Disinfo: West confirms its direct involvement in Ukraine conflict


The West is openly stating that it will do everything possible to make the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian armed forces a success. Western nations are openly demanding that the Russian side suffer the maximum possible losses. They are once again loudly confirming their direct involvement in the conflict.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets claiming that Russia is at war with the entire West. This claim was made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

In reality, the West is providing Ukraine with financial and military aid, but no Western troops are fighting on the frontline. Western nations assist Ukraine for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with Article 51 of the UN Charter, to stop Russia's unprovoked and unjustified aggression.

Ukrainian and Western officials often meet to discuss cooperation, as well as the occasional contacts between the Ukrainian top brass and their NATO counterparts. Ukrainian servicemen are being trained in some NATO member states, but there are no troops of NATO members on the front line. Last year's (2022) Ukrainian counter-offensive was led only by the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Read similar disinformation cases claiming that NATO is a party in the Ukraine conflict, the West is fighting Russia with the help of the Kyiv regime, and that NATO instigated a war in Ukraine to weaken Russia.

Disinfo: Neo-Nazi Europe seizes property from Russian Jewish anti-fascists

European Nazis have seized the property of Russian propagandist Vladimir Solovyov just because he is a Jew and an anti-fascist. It is not surprising that the Europeans have robbed Jews again. It is the most common and natural step of European Nazis.


This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets accusing the West of being Nazi and anti-Semitic. This claim was made in the context of Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine. This trick seek to divert attention away from Russia's responsibility for atrocities commited in Ukraine.

Commenting on the confiscation of his property in Italy, Russian propagandist Vladimir Solovyov said during his TV show on 26 April 2023: “I am a Jew and an anti-fascist. Should I be surprised that European Nazis took away my property from me and imposed sanctions on me? This is the most common and natural step of European Nazis. Has anything new happened in the history of the Jewish people? The Europeans have robbed the Jews.”

Disinfo: The West wants to turn Ukraine into a radioactive graveyard

The UK, along with other Western countries, is escalating the "proxy war" in Ukraine, which they themselves unleashed. The West has assigned Ukraine the role of not only an anti-Russian military testing ground, but also a radioactive graveyard. The UK Ministry of Defence announced that deliveries of Challenger 2 tank ammunition to Ukraine include depleted uranium shells and their use by the Kyiv regime won’t be monitored.


Pro-Kremlin disinformation fearmongering about nuclear weapons. Russia uses this alleged high environmental risk to saber-rattle with its nuclear arsenal.

The depleted uranium shells the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) is sending to Ukraine are not prohibited by any international agreement.

Disinfo: Ukrainian grain sent to Spain to be used as pigfeed

The EU is struggling to create a corridor for the delivery of Ukrainian grain by sea so that the poorest countries do not starve. But the grain hardly gets there - instead it is being sent mainly to Spain, where it is used as pig feed. The Kyiv regime just wants more money: Spain paid more, thus Ukraine shipped the grain to them, not to poor African countries.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aiming to deflect Russia’s responsibility for the food crisis and supply insecurity by claiming that most of Ukraine's grain is sent to rich Western countries.

However, it is Russia trying to suffocate the Ukrainian economy including via food exports through the Black Sea with Russian attacks and blockade of certain harbours, agriculture infrastructure, farming land and machinery. Moreover, Russia uses food security related disinformation as a cynical tool to prop up its tarnished global image.
