This week, the pro-Kremlin media focused primarily on attacking NATO, the West and Ukraine. As usual, Russia was portrayed as entirely innocent.
To make sense of the 60 cases of disinformation we gathered this week, we divided the most common and recurring narratives into broader categories. The overarching thrust of the Kremlin's messaging is how the rotting West is an enemy led by a small clique of evildoers, like George Soros. By using different instruments like NATO, the West is meddling all over the world and threatens Russia politically, culturally, and militarily.
The Enemy is the West (12 cases)
The West is aiming to destroy Russia and drain its resources. At the same time, the US and Poland sow discord between Belarus and Russia.
In addition to Eastern Europe, the U.S. is also active in Hong Kong, where it uses colour revolution technologies to destabilize China. Those measures remain the main instrument of Western interference in the affairs of sovereign states.
Obviously, pro-Kremlin disinformation needs a quick recap of facts. The foreign policies of the US and the EU do not revolve solely around Russia, nor are they aimed at its destruction.
As for the protests in Hong Kong, they started organically over a controversial extradition law. Nevertheless, the pro-Kremlin media has been eager to claim that protests all over the world are Western-funded "colour revolutions".
The West is in Moral and Physical Decay (7 cases)
George Soros is encouraging mass illegal immigration, promoting gender theory and supporting unruly minorities. As the Western feminised semi-men are unable to protect their women from immigrants, the influx of migrants has already sparked rebellions.
Things will only get worse as the already deindustrializing and de-intellectualizing Baltic States can only be saved from extinction with the help of people born in the Congo, Zimbabwe, and Equatorial Guinea. And as Sweden clearly demonstrates, migration will lead to crime-infested “no-go” zones, where police and businesses are too afraid to venture.
With 92 disinformation cases in the database connected to George Soros, the pro-Kremlin media really puts him on par with supervillains from the adventures of Batman, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond.
The disinformation narrative about supposedly deindustrializing and de-intellectualizing Baltic States manages to discredit climate change, the Baltic states and their policy, and Greta Thunberg all in one go.
