Russian propaganda exploiting European pacifists - Poland’s intelligence

Russian propaganda is employing the narratives of false pacifism in Moscow’s favor.

That’s according to Stanislaw Zaryn, Poland’s Commissioner for Security of Information Space, who addressed the issue via Twitter.

According to the Polish agencies responsible for information security, Russia is using the narratives of "false pacifism" in order to win the minds of part of the global audience.

Zaryn emphasized that since Russia is interested in an operational pause in its war on Ukraine, propaganda has boosted media support for European pacifist movements, which come up with ideas to cease hostilities for humanitarian reasons.

"In Poland, the environment of false pacifism is consolidating around L. Sikulski, who promotes narratives that are in line with the efforts of Russian propaganda, accusing the Polish government, the West, and the USA of provoking war, and calling for partnership with Russia," he noted.

According to Poland's Information Security Commissioner, such actions are part of the mechanisms of psychological pressure, aiming at forcing the West to drop support for Ukraine.

"However, the implementation of such ideas would lead to Russia quickly achieving a victory over Ukraine," Zaryn stressed.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, the Lithuanian Radio and Television Commission (LRTK), taking into account the existing EU sanctions on Russia, decided to block within the country’s borders access to IP addresses allowing viewers to watch Russian propaganda TV.
