Disinfo: Zelenskyy might end up in Guantanamo after US policy changes


Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who came to power thanks to promises to end the conflict in Donbas, has completely discredited himself as a politician. After some time as Ukrainian territories shrink, Ukrainian people may violently overthrow Zelenskyy. Following the change in US policies, he might also end up in Guantanamo. The US may abandon Ukraine as abruptly as they did Afghanistan. The big American capital, which is the real power in the US, has been provoking the conflict between Ukraine and Russia for years.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative shifting the blame on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and accusing US actors of provoking the war against Ukraine in an attempt to deflect any responsibility for Moscow’s illicit actions and invasion of Ukraine.

This article is consistent with a disinformation narrative presenting Zelenskyy as a West-managed puppet. Western countries, including the US, respect the sovereignty of Ukraine and do not interfere in its political life in any form, let alone by overthrowing and imprisoning its elected president.

Ukraine's sovereignty has only been violated by continuous acts of aggression by Russian armed forces since 2014 culminating in a full-scale military invasion of Ukraine on 24th February 2022. It was Putin’s personal decision to invade Ukraine and start the largest military conflict in Europe since WWII.

The West supports Ukraine with military and financial aid for the country’s efficient self-defence, in accordance with the UN Charter Article 51, to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine.

Contrary to the claim in the article that the US may abandon Ukraine, the G7 Leaders’ Statement on Ukraine of 19 May 2023 states:

We express our full sympathy and condolences to the Ukrainian people for their loss and suffering. We salute the Ukrainian people for their brave resistance. Our support for Ukraine will not waver. We will not tire in our commitment to mitigate the impact of Russia’s illegal actions on the rest of the world.

See similar cases that the West has turned Ukraine into a puppet; Ukraine is a colony with a puppet regime; Ukraine is a Western puppet that creates problems for Russia; and that the US has turned Ukraine into a puppet.

Disinfo: USSR Victory Banner was raised over the Bundestag building in Berlin in May 2023

The Russians took Berlin without firing a shot: the Banner of Victory again flies over the Reichstag.

It's 2023. The Banner of Victory flies over the Reichstag again. No jokes. In German social networks, photos and videos were circulated, in which the Banner of Victory again appeared over the Reichstag in Berlin. One of the videos was filmed from the window of a passing car. The second is from the street. A closer-up shows how the wind flutters the Banner of Victory on the Reichstag building. Guests of Berlin are happy to take pictures against its background.


The video is a manipulation. The Red Banner of Victory over the Reichstag (Bundestag in today's Germany) in Berlin is a fake. “This has never happened in the German Bundestag,” the Bundestag's press service told in a response to Poligon.Media.

The video of "red banner over Reichstag" first appeared on a pro-Kremlin telegram channel, the Insider found out. The Kremlin affiliated telegram channel referred, in its turn, to unspecified "German social media" but no German social media published such pictures.

Disinfo: European Commission chief visits Kyiv to praise Zelenskyy for tampering with history

Volodymyr Zelenskyy is incompetent and the not very independent Ursula von der Leyen came to congratulate him on the new law abolishing Victory Day.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy has made May 9 Europe Day in Ukraine: the decree published on the website of his office indicates that this decision was taken in particular “to strengthen the unity of the peoples of Europe” , as well as to ensure peace, security and stability on the European continent.

Readers were outraged. This publication is followed by an article on the Nazis, Nazism and Ukraine. Not a word about the role of the Red Army or the Soviet Union. You are on the wrong side of history and you are establishing Nazism in Ukraine. We celebrate this holiday on May 9, not May 8, and we never have.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin confusion narrative about History, Ukraine, and the EU.

The claim is made in the context of the visit of European Commission president von der Leyen to Kyiv on 09 May 2023 to mark Europe Day.

Disinfo: West waged real war against Russia, provoked conflicts, coups and spread Russophobia

Western global elites have waged a real war against Russia. The West turns people against each other and divides society, provokes bloody conflicts and coups, sows hatred, Russophobia and aggressive nationalism.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aiming to justify Russia’s unjustified military invasion of Ukraine by accusing the West of anti-Russian policies, aggressive Russophobia and allegedly belligerent and hostile agenda to destroy, ruin Russia, aiming to portray Russia as a victim and deflect any responsibility for Moscow’s illicit actions. See also Russian Myths: no.5 Encirclement.

The West has never strived to destroy Russia as a state. From the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the emergence of a new and democratic Russia and up to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine in 2014, the West has been trying to establish good-neighbourly relations with Moscow. According to the 1997 Founding Act on Mutual Relations, Cooperation and Security between NATO and the Russian Federation, Russia was viewed as a partner of the alliance.
