Russia spreads disinformation about "Nazi alliance with Bandera supporters"

Deputy head of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, falsely claims that the Ukraine-Germany security agreement equals a supposed "new alliance between the Nazis and Banderites."

The Center for Strategic Communications and Information Security reports this fake campaign.

The message clarifies that Russian propaganda outlets are promoting the baseless narrative that the bilateral security cooperation pact between Ukraine and Germany constitutes a "new alliance of Nazis with Banderites."

The Center refutes this false claim, underscoring that the February 16 agreement provides Kyiv with extensive capabilities to counter Russian aggression. These include financial support, assistance for the Ukrainian defense industry, and the potential for imposing sanctions on the Russian Federation.

The Center adds, "Medvedev, authorized by the Kremlin, persistently expresses Moscow's antagonistic policies towards other nations and their governments in a blatantly hostile and vulgar manner. Such rhetoric impedes negotiations with the current Kremlin regime. The references to 'Nazis' and 'Banderites' align with Putin's narratives, reflecting a contemptuous attitude towards peoples resisting 'Russian world.'"

  • On Friday, January 12, the UK and Ukraine inked a long-term security agreement during a meeting between Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv.
  • During Zelenskyy's visit to Germany, the nations sealed a deal on "security cooperation," accompanied by Germany announcing a new aid package for Ukraine, totaling 1.1 billion euros.
  • Following that, President Zelenskyy visited France, where he met with President Emmanuel Macron, signing an agreement on security guarantees. President Macron declared a military aid commitment to Ukraine, amounting to €6 billion over three years.
  • Simultaneously, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte disclosed that a security agreement with Ukraine is in its final stages.
  • On Thursday, February 22, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen declared the signing of a security agreement with Ukraine, coupled with a $250 million aid package.
