The best defence is good offense

By EU vs Disinfo Pro-Kremlin Coordinated Efforts on Disinformation The new coronavirus epidemic is dominating the news this week, and this is clearly reflected in the flow of disinformation from pro-Kremlin outlets. The narrative on the virus is getting focused on hinting on it being man-made, and probably manufactured by the same British lab that poisoned the Skripals. The virus is further tailor-made to target Asians and spread by the

Disinformation Groundhog Day

By EU vs Disinfo It is Groundhog Day in the world of pro-Kremlin disinformation, with WWII revisionism and the coronavirus continuing to dominate our disinfo caseload this week. According to Punxsutaney Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, winter will be ending early this year. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the Kremlin’s persistent disinformation efforts surrounding World War II and the coronavirus outbreak – shadows that even poor Phil

Kremlin historians, fighting the war on remembrance

By EU vs Disinfo The disinformation campaign against Poland, reported in the Disinformation Review #180, is visible in the transcript of a discussion organised by the journal Russia in Global Affairs on “The memory of the history and its role in Foreign Policy”. Here, a group of historians talk about how to utilise history for improving Russia’s international position. From this transcript it is clear that Poland has been carefully selected as a

Fake: Poland Introduces Censorship about World War II on US Orders

Russian media reacted to Poland’s parliamentary resolution condemning the spread of Russian propaganda about Polish history by declaring that the United States are backing and financing Poland’s anti-Russian policies. On Washington’s orders Poland refuses to accept historic facts, resorts to rewriting the history of World War II and justifying Nazism, Russia’s leading pro-Kremlin publications declared. Raising the hysterical rhetoric up a notch, the newspaper Vzglyad even claims that Poland intends

Stanisław Żaryn: A hidden agenda behind Putin’s disinformation attack on Poland

By Stanisław Żaryn At the turn of the year, Vladimir Putin, along with other top Russian officials, carried out a massive disinformation campaign against Poland. They falsely accused Warsaw of having colluded with Hitler in 1939 and demanded that the current Polish authorities apologise for the policy pursued by their pre-war predecessors. The attack was no accident, but a part of an ongoing, broader hostile influence operation against the West.

Russian energy narrative targets Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic States

By Margarita Assenova, for Polygraph Vladimir Kornilov Russian political commentator “Poland, the Baltic States and, for some time now, Ukraine, without even realizing that they are acting to their own detriment, are trying to do everything they can to, as they see it, harm Russia. That is why they are impeding the expansion of Russian gas projects and acting solely for the sake of the United States, contrary to their

Kremlin disinformation this week: Old lies, Jewish bankers, and green dictators

By EU vs Disinfo Se non è vero, è molto ben trovato – “It might be untrue, but it is very well conceived”. The phrase is attributed to the Italian astronomer and philosopher Giordano Bruno, executed in Rome for heresy in 1600. Unfortunately, when it comes to pro-Kremlin disinformation, false claims are rarely elegantly constructed. State-owned Russian mouthpiece Sputnik’s Arabian services are broadcasting crude old lies about a dying British

The specter of 1939: The unlearned lessons of WWII linger in, for some

By Edward Lucas, for CEPA Every Pole knows why September 17th, 1939 matters. So do many Ukrainians, especially in the country’s west–which was then part of Poland.But almost nobody else does. The 80th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of eastern Poland will go unmarked in the West. In Russia, it will prompt yet more lies and propaganda obscuring the Soviet Union’s cozy ties with Nazi Germany. This has been in

Breaking “News”: The Kremlin discovered that Poland started WWII and the Baltics are not free

By EU vs Disinfo As world leaders gathered in Poland to commemorate 80 years since the start of World War II, Russian officials were outraged that they were not invited. The reason the Russians weren’t invited hasn’t changed since 2014 – as the Poles made clear, it’s thanks to the Kremlin’s habit of arriving uninvited in various countries. Of course, instead of reflecting critically on Russia’s aggressive stance towards its
