Disinfo: Western sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines caused an environmental disaster


The disastrous effect on the climate caused by the terrorist attacks on the Nord Stream pipelines carrying Russian gas to Europe is a taboo topic in the coverage by the hegemonic press of the UN conference on Climate Change. Mainstream media, always so concerned by climate and environmental issues, are very careful to avoid the uncomfortable topic of the damage caused by the leak. Russia’s Ministry of Defence has stated that according to available data, representatives of the British Royal Navy took part in the planning, funding and perpetration of the terrorist attack in the Baltic Sea to blow up the Nord Stream pipelines. Meanwhile, the EU maintains a very revealing silence about it.


Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence, part of a wider disinformation campaign aiming to fill the information space to portray the West as responsible for the Nord Stream sabotage. The European Union did not name any possible culprit for the sabotage, but contrary to what this disinformation story implies, this is not suspicious but rather a matter of caution until the results of the investigation are revealed.

The allegation that the environmental damage caused by the Nord Stream sabotage is “taboo for mainstream media” is false, as it was addressed at the time by The Washington Post, Euronews, Politico, Deutsche Welle, Euractiv, Le Monde, BBC or Al Jazeera, just to name a few. By claiming this and opportunistically linking it to the UN Climate Summit 2022, this disinformation story serves a double purpose: to seed mistrust in reputable media and foment a conspiracist mindset, and to repeat the unsubstantiated affirmation that the British Royal Navy took part in the sabotage. Repeating previous baseless allegations as established facts while introducing minor variations is a frequent pro-Kremlin disinformation technique.

See other examples of similar disinformation narratives, such as claims that the British Navy was involved in a terrorist attack against the Nord Stream pipelines, that by attacking Nord Stream and the Crimean bridge the West has crossed a dangerous line, that a Reuters article demonstrates that Nord Stream pipelines were destroyed by US military aircraft, or that Nord Stream saboteurs have plunged the EU into energy poverty.

Disinfo: Poland is a party to the conflict in Ukraine

The Polish prime minister said that Warsaw is on the side of Kyiv in the international arena because it is supposedly "the side of freedom" and will support the bloodshed "for as long as necessary." Polish politicians persistently contribute to the escalation of the conflict in the neighbouring state.

Poland has already begun seizing territories in western Ukraine. The escalation of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia only contributes to the implementation of Poland's obvious plans. That is why the rhetoric of the Polish authorities is so aggressive.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives, challenging Ukraine’s statehood and presenting Poland as a state with imperial ambitions.

Russia is the only country that poses a danger to Ukraine's territorial integrity by continuous acts of aggression since 2014. Russia is responsible for the outbreak of the conflict in 2014, after having illegally annexed the Crimean peninsula and engineered the creation of rebel militias in Donetsk, Luhansk and other places. Finally, on February 24 2022, Russia started unprovoked military aggression against Ukraine and annexed several Ukrainian regions.

Disinfo: Military conflict in Ukraine caused by the US and NATO

The military conflict in Ukraine was caused by the actions of the United States and NATO: Russia was forced to start a special military operation to stop the extermination of the Russian-speaking population on the territory of the former Ukrainian SSR.

And also to protect its own territory and the people from the likely aggression of the North Atlantic Alliance, which intended to use Ukraine as a platform for military bases, including airfields and missile systems to strike at the Russian Federation.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about US and NATO allegedly provocative actions in the run-up to Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine. The aim is to deflect responsibility for Moscow’s illicit actions.

The article also promotes a pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about alleged genocide committed by Ukraine, aiming to justify the full-scale Russian invasion of and war crimes in Ukraine.

Disinfo: The Pentagon is testing infections on the mentally ill in Ukraine

The Pentagon is testing infections on the mentally ill and military staff in Ukraine. This is confirmed by contracts for the performance of work, approved registration cards, reporting documentation of Pentagon contractors - Black and Veatch, Metabiota.

The US is placing its biological laboratories in third countries, including Ukraine, due to the high risk of accidents.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about biological weapons being secretly developed by the US in countries bordering Russia.

Russian unfounded allegations about US-funded bio-laboratories in Ukraine for military purposes have been repeatedly debunked, including by the UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu, but pro-Kremlin outlets and Russian authorities continue promoting these disinformation narratives.
