We are on the brink of World War III, which the West is compulsively pushing for. And this is no longer a fear or expectation, it is a fact. Russia is at war with the collective West, with NATO and its allies (though not with all of them: Turkey and Greece have their own position and some European countries, primarily but not only France and Italy do not want to actively participate in a war with Russia). Yet, the threat of a third world war is getting closer and closer.

Whether it will come to the use of nuclear weapons us an open question. But the probability of a nuclear Armageddon grows by the day. It is quite clear, and many American military commanders (such as the former American commander in Europe Ben Hodges) openly declare it, that the West will not even be satisfied with our complete withdrawal from the territory of the former Ukraine, we will end up on our own soil, insisting on ‘unconditional surrender’ (Jens Stoltenberg), “de-imperialisation’ (Ben Hodges), dismemberment of Russia.

In 1991, the West was content with the collapse of the USSR and our ideological surrender, primarily by accepting the Western liberal ideology, political system and economy under Western leadership. Today, the red line for the West is the existence of a sovereign Russia, even within the borders of the Russian Federation.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine’s (AFU’s) counter-attack in the Kharkiv region is a direct attack by the West on Russia. Everyone knows that this offensive was organized, prepared and equipped by the US and NATO military command and took place under their direct supervision. It is not only the use of military equipment, but also the direct involvement of Western aerospace intelligence, mercenaries and instructors. In the eyes of the West, this is the beginning of ‘our end’. Once we have made a weakness in the defence of the territories under our control in the Kharkiv region, we can be further defeated. This is not a small success of the Kiev counteroffensive, but the tangible success of the NATO forces’ Drang nach Osten’

At the heart of the global confrontation that has begun is the spiritual, religious aspect. Russia is at war with an anti-religious civilization that fights God and overthrows the very foundations of spiritual and moral values: God, the Church, the family, gender, man.

With all the differences between Orthodoxy, traditional Islam; Judaism; Hinduism or Buddhism, all religions and the cultures built upon them recognize divine truth, the high spiritual and dignity of man, honouring traditions and institutions- the state, the family, the community.

The modern West has abolished all of this, replacing it with virtual reality, extreme individualism, the destruction of gender, universal surveillance, a totalitarian’ abolition culture’, a post-truth society.

Open Satanism and outright racism flourish in Ukraine, and the West only supports them. We are dealing with what the Orthodox elders call the ‘civilisation of the Antichrist’. Russia’s role is therefore to unite believers of different faiths in this decisive battle.

You must not wait for the world enemy to destroy your home, kill your husband, son or daughter. At some point it will be too late. God forbid we live to see such moment. The enemy offensive in the Kharkiv region is just that: the beginning of a real war of the West against us.

The West demonstrates its intention to start a war of annihilation against us- the third world war. We must bring together all our deepest national potential to repel this attack. With all means: thought, military force, economy, culture, art, internal mobilization of all state structures and each of us.

Disinformation Narratives

The Kremlin promotes a variety of anti-Western and pro-Russian ``master narratives'' across its propaganda platforms,both within Russia and abroad. Russian government propagandists subscribe to these narratives and follow them to craft and frame disinformation campaigns that advance the Kremlin's positions and interests. Several master narratives employed by Kremlin propagandists, include:

  1. Savior of Europe: Russia has been Europe's savior for over 200 years, ever since Alexander II stopped Napoleon's  armies from dominating Europe in 1812. Russia also saved Europe from the Nazis, and Western nations tend to minimize this achievement. Russia should proudly assert its people's heroism to get the recognition it deserves and be admired as a great power.
  2. Eurasian Bridge: Russia was founded as a great civilization that acted as a bridge between East and West. The collapse of the Soviet Union, which went from the Baltic Sea to the Bering Strait, created a vacuum in a region that it is Russia's destiny to shape and lead. Russia has to advance its cultural, economic, and  diplomatic relationships to forge a new regional union that can rival the other global powers.
  3. Catching Up with Rivals: In the 1990s, Russia tried to emulate the unfettered capitalism of the West, causing it to fall from its status as a global economic and cultural leader. Putin returned Russia to the path of prosperity and moved to modernize the economy beyond natural resources by harnessing the entrepreneurship and innovation of the Russian people. Russia must continue to follow this path toward a modern economy to remain strong and catch up to the other global powers.
  4. Fortress Russia: For centuries, Russia has been attacked on all fronts by imperial powers seeking to expand their borders, from Japanese fleets in the east to Nazi armies in the west. Now the United States, NATO, and         Europe are conspiring to surround Russia and keep it from becoming an equal power. But Russia has and always will defend itself and will continue to hold its ground against aggressors that seek to weaken it.
  5. Good Tsar: Russia is at its best under the leadership of strong leaders like Peter the Great that bring order and stability. Western puppets like Boris Yeltsin were weak and let Russia descend into chaos during the 1990s. But after Putin came to power, order and stability returned. The Russian people should place their trust in the Kremlin and be wary of its critics,  who seek to return Russia to chaos.
  6. Western entities are Russophobic: The United States and NATO are preparing to destroy Russia after successfully causing the collapse of the Soviet Union.
  7. Russia is a victim of the West, and Western media are anti-Russian or purposely spread disinformation and propaganda: Media in the West falsely accuse the Russian government of spreading disinformation
  8. Russia is the world's protector: Russian soldiers came to the aid of Crimea's Russian-speaking people when they were threatened by Ukrainian soldiers, and by annexing the peninsula Russia saved Crimea from war. In Syria, Russia's military intervention made terrorists agree to a truce.
  9. Some Western entities support Russia or Russia's positions:  One in three Europeans consider Crimea a part of Russia and some European countries recognize Crimea as part of Russia.
  10. Russia's boundaries are not accurately reflected on maps, and Russia owns additional lands: Ukraine has always been a part of Russia and the Baltic countries and Belarus are also part of Russia.
  11. Russia has not violated international agreements or international law: Russia did not annex Crimea—Crimea was returned to its native land as the result of a referendum.
  12. The Ukrainian government is illegitimate and violent: The Ukrainian government came to power through a coup and is illegitimate, and Nazis lead the Ukrainian government, which supports fascist policies and ideas.
  13. EU and/or European governments are unable to manage the  migration crisis or are manipulating the crisis for other purposes: EU member states cannot protect their citizens from violent migrants, who are altering     European culture. The EU is taking advantage of the migrant crisis to create an occupation army that will be authorized to take control of national borders without the permission of member states.
  14. The West's values are evil, decadent, etc.: The European Parliament promotes the gay movement in Europe and is trying to eliminate male and female gender identities. The sexual abuse of minors is a state-sponsored national tradition in Norway and the country's institution for the protection of Children's rights supports this system.
  15. The EU and/or European governments are American puppets: The EU was created by the United States to take away sovereignty from European member states, and Germany facilitates U.S. hegemony over Europe.
