Western values are egoism, hedonism and extreme relativism

Summary of Disinformation

After the collapse of the socialist system Western values spread in the post-Soviet space. They include economic expansionism and egoism, consumerist attitude to the nature, people, interpersonal relations and culture, extreme individualism and hedonism, contempt for moderation, extreme relativism and negation of any principles when it comes to moral and ethical norms, which result in immorality.

Disproof

This message is ungrounded generalisation containing a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at portraying West as immoral.

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