Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

US and European allies have invaded / occupied Ukraine, as there are 10,000 NATO soldiers in Ukraine. They want to do the same with Belarus, that’s why the West instigates protests here.

It is an often repeated pro-Kremlin disinformation that the Ukranian state is fascist, but as usual no evidence was given. The investigation into the murder of the well-known Putin critic is ongoing.
