Disinfo: Without all-Russian civilization Ukraine lost its sovereignty, now Belarus is under risk

Summary

Ukrainian establishment’s denial that Ukraine is an integral part of all-Russian civilization resulted in the loss of Ukraine’s sovereignty. The so-called EU integration is promoted in Ukraine by people who personally benefit from it, even though such integration is based on fascism and impoverishment of the population.

Likewise, for Belarus, the Union State with Russia would mean the restoration of independence and sovereignty. In civilizational terms, Belarus is a western boundary of all-Russian civilization. Without Russia and Russian people, Belarus and Belarusians would have disappeared long ago, and Polish eastern boundaries would replace Belarus. The Eastern Partnership, various cooperation modes with NATO, etc. are not acceptable for Belarus because quasi- EU integration is based on geopolitical catastrophe and Western imperialism.

Disproof

This is an example of recurring pro-Kremlin propagandistic narratives about Belarus and Ukraine as an integral part of the Russian world, fascist and imperial West, Ukraine as a non-sovereign country, and the West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations through the development of bilateral cooperation.

The publications puts forward a false dilemma about the direction of Belarus' and Ukraine's political development (union with Russia vs. unavoidable loss of sovereignty degradation) and promotes the concept of all-Russian civilisation, an imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology that is a favoured pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at weakening the national identity of Belarusians and Ukrainians, as well as their sovereignty. Belarus and Ukraine are well-defined nation-states with a long history, which preserved their languages, literature and identity, despite foreign rule for long periods.

See our earlier analysis titled, Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest, which explains the consistent picturing the EU and the West as fascist / Nazi, and earlier disinformation cases alleging that Belarus and the Russian Federation are parts of Russia, that the Union State of Belarus and Russia saves post-Soviet countries from pro-fascist West, that the West destroyed the USSR and is currently targeting the Union State between Belarus and Russia, and that Belarus faces either normal development under Russia or a forced Polonization and economic devastation.

Poland leads a campaign whose ultimate goal is to destroy Russia

Poland leads a campaign that aims to blame Russia for the WW2, for deaths of tens of millions of people, that Russia comes from hell and must be destroyed. In these circumstances we must say the truth: Poland cooperated with Hitler and Russia stopped Polish-Hitler aggression.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Poland and the WW2.

The Polish authorities have publicly rebutted Russia's repeated attempts at historical revisionism, there is no campaign aimed at destruction of Russia.

China is preparing to resist a US attack of mass destruction

China is preparing to resist an attack of weapons of mass destruction. The biggest pharmaceutical companies are in the US, the secret services which use weapons of mass destruction are also in the US. And who do they consider their main adversaries? China and Russia! In countries neighboring Russia there already are labs developing biological weapons,

Disproof

Conspiracy theory.

In response to the outbreak of the corona virus the Chinese authorities have placed more than a dozen cities under quarantine. The World Health Organisation is working with Chinese authorities and global experts to learn more about the virus. The virus "2019-nCoV” comes from a family of viruses that include the common cold, and viruses such as SARS and MERS. There is no evidence to suggest it was developed artificially as a weapon of mass destruction.
