Russia is at war with NATO because European Union HRVP Josep Borrell has said in an interview: “This is not the moment for diplomatic conversations about peace, it is the moment of supporting militarily the war. So, I feel as a diplomat but I feel also as a kind of defence minister with the European Union. Because I spend quite an important part of my time talking about the arms.”
Moscow never gave up on solving the problems caused by the US and its satellites by supplying weapons to Ukraine to confront Russia. This has a solution, but not with Zelenskyy, who is a puppet in the hands of the West, but directly with his masters.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Ukraine and Europe’s alleged loss of sovereignty, part of a wider disinformation campaign to justify Russia’s unprovoked invasion.
By calling Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy -a frequent target of pro-Kremlin disinformation- “a puppet”, and the allies of Ukraine and the US “satellites”, this disinformation story aims to portray Ukraine’s self-defence against Russia’s aggression and the international efforts to back Kyiv as serving only US interests. The ultimate goal is to undermine popular support for this aid while denying any legitimacy for Ukraine’s leadership and statehood.
See other examples of similar disinformation narratives in our database, such as claims that Zelenskyy’s visit to Washington shows that Ukraine will be a neo-colony of the US, that Ukraine lost its independence and is under external control, that the West has made Ukraine its colony and is using Ukrainians as cannon fodder, or that Zelenskyy may use a dirty bomb if the US asks him to do so.
