Disclosure Ukraine blackmails Western partners with terrorist attacks if they stop supplying weapons

The Kremlin propaganda media and anonymous telegram channels are spreading information that Mykhailo Podoliak, adviser to the President's Office, is allegedly blackmailing the West. On the Rada TV channel, he allegedly warned Western partners that “in the event of a cessation of arms supplies to Ukraine, Europe will face numerous terrorist attacks and a large-scale war”. Russian propaganda writes that this is Podoliak's response to the statement by the head of EU diplomacy, Joselle Borrell, that “Ukraine without the support of the West would have to surrender within a few days”. This is manipulation.

As experts of the StopFake project note, Mykhailo Podoliak did not blackmail the West with terrorist attacks. On the air of the Rada TV channel on May 10, 2023, he stated that Russia continues to pose a security threat to the entire democratic world. And if the countries of Europe stop supplying weapons to Ukraine, this could lead to further aggression against Ukrainians, the scaling up of the war in neighboring countries and an increase in the number of terrorist attacks in Europe.

Mykhailo Podoliak commented on the words of Joselle Borrell. He noted that Mr. Borrell absolutely sincerely believes in the victory of Ukraine and does everything as efficiently as possible. He noted that “it is simply not necessary to say that Ukraine could become a puppet state if the West stops helping”. According to Podoliak, this is impossible, because under any scenario, “a third of the population of Ukraine will be destroyed”, a genocide will be committed.

Thus, Russian propaganda is trying to undermine the authority of Ukraine in the international arena, as well as to intimidate the whole world with war. Propagandists transfer the responsibility for Russia's crimes to the victim. Earlier, Detector Media denied the fake that the United States said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would undermine the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant during the counteroffensive.
