Detector Media collects and documents real-time chronicles of the Kremlin disinformation about the Russian invasion. Ukraine for decades has been suffering from Kremlin disinformation. Here we document all narratives, messages, and tactics, which Russia is using from February 17th, 2022. Reminder: the increasing of shelling and fighting by militants happened on the 17th of February 2022 on the territory of Ukraine. Russian propaganda blames Ukraine for these actions.

On 25 September, on the 213th day of the full-scale war, our editorial office recorded:

Русскій фейк, іді на***!

Manipulation Ukrainians will be punished for receiving Russian humanitarian aid in the occupied territories

Such messages are spread by pro-Russian telegram channels and Twitter accounts. Allegedly, such a crime is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The propagandists also refer to the "law on collaborationism", which supposedly came into force on August 16. It is not true.

Ukrainian legislation does not provide for liability for receiving Russian humanitarian aid in the occupied territories. According to StopFake, the new bills, on the contrary, are designed to include humanitarian aid in the list of activities that are not considered collaborationism, if there is no cooperation with the Russian occupiers.

There is no single “law on collaborationism” in Ukraine yet. On March 15, separate rules on liability for cooperation with the occupiers came into force. There is also no single punishment for collaborators yet. Depending on the circumstances, it can be different: from a ban on holding certain positions to life imprisonment.

Fake In the Donbas, wounded Ukrainian soldiers and locals with pro-Russian views become victims of black transplants

Anonymous telegram channels and Russian media write about this with reference to the militant of the so-called LNR, "representative of the people's militia of the LNR" Andriy Marochko. Allegedly, on the territory where hostilities are taking place, wounded Ukrainian servicemen and local residents with pro-Russian views are disappearing somewhere. Marochko says that he allegedly has evidence of the work of "Western transplantologists" who transport organs and Ukraine, and then to the West. It is not true.

Organs removed from the body remain viable for a limited period of time, during which it is impossible to transport them from the war zone in Donbas to the West. Organ retrieval requires a team of specially trained personnel of at least 6-8 surgeons. Transplantation is always targeted, based on a series of compatibility criteria. For this, a preliminary medical examination of both the donor and the recipient is always carried out, which is impossible in war conditions.

Message The Kyiv authorities launched a punitive operation against the inhabitants of Donbas because of their rejection of the rehabilitation of Nazism

This opinion of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu was disseminated by the pro-Kremlin media and telegram channels. Like, many residents of Ukraine did not indulge the ruling regime in its Nazi aspirations.

Such messages are part of a propaganda campaign against Ukraine and Europe to prove that the Russian army is “liberating” the world and, in particular, Ukraine from Nazism. This is one of the contrived reasons for Russia's war in Ukraine.

Fake Residents of Great Britain are switching to reusable toilet paper because of the crisis

They write about it on pro-Russian websites. For example, in Great Britain they allegedly invented reusable toilet paper as a way to save money "against the background of anti-Russian sanctions in the country", residents of the country are switching to it because of the crisis. Russian politician Dmytro Medvediev called on Europeans not to be silent about the issue of toilet paper and to demand that their governments restore full-fledged economic relations with Russia. This is not true.

Message Ukrainians in the occupied territories are turning into Russians

Russian propaganda convinces of this. But this is not the case at all, the Center for Strategic Communications notes.

In fact, Ukrainians are:

going to rallies en masse,

cooperating with the Armed Forces,

fighting the invaders on their own,

Message The terrorists of the Ukrainian regime blew up the daughter of Oleksandr Duhin

Such information is disseminated by Russian and anonymous telegrams.

Immediately after the car explosion, the so-called head of the part of the Donetsk region occupied since 2014, Denys Pushylin, said that it was the terrorists of the Ukrainian regime who tried to eliminate the "ideologist of Putin" Oleksandr Duhin, and blew up his daughter Daria.

Russian propagandist, editor-in-chief of the Rossiia Sehodnia news agency, head of the Russia Today TV channel Margaryta Simonian demands strikes on decision-making centers in Kyiv.

Anonymous telegram channels write that the channels of the President's Office began to "dance victoriously on the death" of Duhin's daughter, which indirectly confirmed Bankova's participation in this event.

The murder of Duhina is supposedly a victory for the Security Service of Ukraine, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the British, who were preparing the Ukrainian military for a "partisan" war.

Allegedly, the Office of the President of Ukraine hunted Duhin in order to spread panic among the Russians. Mykhailo Podoliak, adviser to the head of the OPU, said on the air of the telethon that Ukraine had nothing to do with the bombing of Daria Duhina. In his opinion, propagandists will use this to increase the ideological informational pressure on Russian society: "Let's go massacre Ukrainians."

Another theory of propagandists is that now the Russians will want their missiles to fly at different Arestovyches, Podoliaks and others.

A criminal case has been initiated on the murder, an investigation is underway, there are no official statements from the investigators yet. From the Office of the President of Ukraine, no one arranged any dances at the death of Duhin's daughter.

Message The ban on Russian citizens from entering the EU countries is a manifestation of Nazi policy

Ukrainian and Russian media spread the news with reference to Russian Defense Minister Serhii Shoihu. He said this at a meeting of the so-called First International Anti-Fascist Congress, which is designed to become a platform for upholding the historical truth about the decisive contribution of the USSR to the defeat of fascism during the Second World War, as well as to counteract the spread of Nazi ideology.

According to the Russian minister, the Russophobic idea is being actively promoted from the high European stands to ban all Russian citizens from entering the EU countries and this is a vivid manifestation of Nazi policy.

Fake Ukraine used chemical weapons against the Russian military in the Zaporizhzhia region

This was reported in the Russian Ministry of Defense. Allegedly, several Russian military men who were in the territory of the occupied Zaporizhzhia region of Ukraine were found to have a poisonous substance - botulinum toxin type "B". This substance is an organic poison of artificial origin.

Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the head of the President's Office, believes that they were poisoned by alcohol.

So, having carefully read the official statement of the Russian Ministry of Defense regarding the poisoning of the military of the Russian occupation army in the Ukrainian city of Vasilievka, Zaporizhzhia region and the accusation of Ukraine of using "chemical weapons" (by the way, they are talking about this with all seriousness), we can say this (also seriously ):

Excessive consumption of cheap unlicensed alcohol in a 40-degree heat, along with expired dry rations of the "Russian army" can definitely lead to unpredictable consequences. Ukrainian land will never be hospitable to Russian invaders. Endless vomiting is even better that can await you here. However, we understand that it’s not the right time to expect adequacy from you, so continue to tell “fables of good will” about the large-scale use of “alcoholic chemical weapons”,” Podoliak replied. Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry recorded alleged chemical attacks on the Russian military from a Ukrainian drone and found unmanned AFU apartments for spraying chemicals.

Fake The mayor of Lviv Sadovyi urged residents to buy firewood for the winter

This was written by the pro-Kremlin media with reference to the mayor of Lviv, Andrii Sadovyi. It is not true.

Fake Due to the intensive flow of Ukrainian refugees in Germany, there is an "acute shortage of teachers."

This information was disseminated by Russian media and Telegram channels with reference to the German edition of Die Welt. Ukrainians who seek asylum in Germany are not only putting a catastrophic strain on the education system, but are also “behaving arrogantly” and “not following the rules.” This is evidenced by the comments under the publication on the Die Welt website. Allegedly, in the comments under the publication they write that Ukrainians who seek asylum in Germany not only create a catastrophic burden on the education system, but also “behave boldly” and “do not follow the rules.”

In fact, propagandists have significantly distorted the meaning of the article in Die Welt "Good chances for the integration of Ukrainian children - but the lack of teachers becomes dangerous," Stop Fake fact-checkers report. The author of the material, Kevin Chulina, writes that Ukrainian children have every chance of successfully integrating into German society, but the lack of teachers that existed even before the war could become an obstacle in learning the German language.

According to Deutsche Welle, Germany has been experiencing a crisis in the educational system for more than 10 years, including a shortage of teachers.

In addition, Russian propaganda regularly uses the opportunity to influence judgments by presenting individual comments as a general opinion on some issue. In this case, the propagandists applied the same method. Under the publication of Die Welt, you can find individual comments that speak negatively about Ukrainian schoolchildren. However, these individual comments cannot be considered to reflect the true situation.
