Millions of Ukrainians are encountering russian propaganda every day. It spreads through TV, radio, mass media, social networks, and word of mouth. To defeat the enemy, we must fight it on all fronts. To this end, we have prepared a daily compilation of russian fakes.
Today, the russian information space is not as active but is mostly focused on russian offensive in Donbas.
Kremlin-bought “foreign” experts continue to push russian narratives about the futility of Ukrainian resistance, the need for Ukraine to capitulate to the superior russian army, and the need for Europe to appease russia to avoid nuclear war. It is clear russia is trying to force Ukraine to capitulate while it still has some advantage on the battlefield.
russian propagandists are threatening the whole world with nukes after the US approved the transfer of long-range MLRS to Ukraine. It appears that Ukraine reaching parity with russia in long-range capabilities is something that russian leadership is really afraid of.
Main fake narratives:
- NATO and the EU are orchestrating a global food crisis
- The US was developing bioweapons in Ukraine and Nigeria
- Poland is planning to capture western Ukraine
- Ukrainian soldiers are surrendering en masse
- The west is controlling Ukraine
- russians don’t commit war crimes, Ukrainians do
- Sanctions against russia are destroying Europe
- The world is dominated by russophobia
FAKE: The West banning russian state media is a case of the dictatorship of liberalism
russia is dissatisfied with its main propaganda channels being banned in Europe and the west. russian propagandists love to claim that this proves that the west has no freedom of speech and that the whole of Europe is under the “authoritarian rule of liberals”. The claims are as ridiculous as they sound, coming from a country that has one of the worst freedom of speech and freedom of press indexes in the world, and is, itself, a fascist dictatorship.
russian media is being banned, not because of some evil plot hatched by “liberals”. russian media is being banned because it is all being controlled by kremlin. It is used to wage an information war against the EU and NATO, spread fakes, cover up russian war crimes, and justify russian invasion of Ukraine. russian media is used as a weapon against the free world.
Be advised: russia is waging a full-scale information war against Ukraine. There are multitudes of new fakes swarming through the mass media every day. To protect you and your family, be sure to obtain and share your information only from official sources.
