Western geopolitical goal: break Russia up into a few nominally independent states

Summary

The West’s geopolitical goals are to preserve independent post-Soviet countries (which are in fact sort of feudal principalities) and to break Russia up into a few nominally independent states. In case of impossibility of the latter scenario, the goal is to make Russia a mere supplier of raw materials in the interests of Western corporations and American unipolar world order. In order to achieve these goals, the opponents of Russia and Russkiy Mir (‘Russian World’) focus on multidimentional facilifactions of history of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) in the interests of Western oligarchy and bureaucracy. This way they want to change historic conscience of Russians and other post-Soviet people.

Disproof

This disinformation message is a conspiracy theory consistent with several recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Western Russophobia and belligerent West's attempts to encircle Russia.

See earlier conspiracies about Western "Great Turan" doctrine aimed at creating a ring of unfriendly states along Russia's southern border and a similar anti-Russian plan for an "Anaconda ring".

See also an earlier cases about an alleged Western anti-family strategy with the ultimate aim of obtaining access to Russian natural resources, Western strategy to destroy historic conscience of Belarusian society through the controlled network of NGOs, Russia's collapse as West's foreign policy, and changes of political regimes in Belarus and Russia as Eastern Partnership program's aim.

The EU continues the aggressive policies of Nazi Germany

The present ruling elites of the West follow many concepts of Nazi Germany. They continue considering the people of Russia and other post-Soviet countries as Untermenschen (“racially inferior” people) and the Eurasian space as Lebensraum (‘living space’). In this light, there is no difference between Hitler’s concept of a New Europe and the present European Union. The EU remains the Europe of capitals and elites, not the Europe of the people. The destruction of the USSR, NATO’s expansion to the East, banderovshchina (‘fascist regime’) in Ukraine and the revival of neo-Nazism in the Baltic states – all these are manifestations of an old West’s ‘Drang nach Osten‘ (Drive to the East) policy.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Nazis in the EU,  that have been repeatedly debunked (see here).

The European Union is set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Second World War.

Polish authorities and population dream of taking over most of Belarus’ territory

At times, in the Belarusian information sphere, Poland and other Western countries are presented as friends, while Russia is painted as a boa constrictor. In reality, the population of Poland and the country’s authorities are obsessed with expanding Poland which would cover the territories between the Baltic and the Black seas. In other words, they want to incorporate most of present-time Belarus into Poland.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory and recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Poland's plans to partition Belarus and Western plans to disrupt Belarusian-Russian ties.

This message is also consistent with a narrative on Western belligerence and Poland's aggressive policy and alleged imperial ambitions.

The West invested enormous sums of money into ideological sabotage in Belarus

The West invested big sums of money in ideological sabotage in Belarus. One example is a more wide-spread designation of Third Reich’s ideology as Nazism instead of Fascism in scientific publications, etc.  German revanchists prefer the term Nazism. Also, child prisoners and child slave workers of World War II were renamed Ostarbeiters which sounds similar to Gastarbeiters. This prevents former child prisoners from organising patriotic education for present-time Belarusian youth.

Disproof

This message is an ungrounded conspiracy consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about West's attempts to destroy the historic conscience of the Belarusian society and to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations.

Between 1933 and 1945 Germany was controlled by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP), hence Nazism is indeed a more correct designation of the Third Reich's ideology, because Nazism had some features different from fascism. However in the Soviet Union the term German-Fascist invaders was commonly used instead of the Nazi Germany. Currently Belarusian historians use the latter term more often than before. No evidence are provided to support the claims that this development is a result of sophisticated sabotage by the West are unfounded.
