Narratives
„The NATO war in Ukraine,
sometimes known as the Russia–
Ukraine War is a proxy war
started by the United States in
2014 with the violent overthrow
of the democratically elected
government of Ukraine in
collaboration with Ukrainian neo-
Nazi groups. Nazi and neo-Nazi
organizations have been active in
Ukraine since 1941 and received
Pentagon and CIA arms and
assistance until 1954, which was
resumed by the Obama
administration in 2013 under CIA
director John Brennan. Brennan
was a key player in the Russia
collusion hoax, a disinformation
and propaganda psyop to
convince the American people
that Donald Trump had
"colluded" with Russian
President Vladimir Putin to rig
the 2016 presidential election
and to stir anti-Russian
sentiment.“
„The Russo-Ukrainian War has
been ongoing between Russia
(alongside Russian separatists
in Ukraine) and Ukraine since
February 2014.[d] Following
Ukraine's Revolution of
Dignity, Russia annexed
Crimea from Ukraine and
supported pro-Russian
separatists in the war in
Donbas against Ukrainian
government forces; fighting
for the first eight years of the
conflict also included naval
incidents, cyberwarfare, and
heightened political tensions.
In February 2022, the conflict
saw a major escalation as
Russia launched a full-scale
invasion of Ukraine.“

The Use Of Sources
Wikipedia
- Using standardized citing
- Every piece of information has a
source.
- Sources mainly including news
agencies
- The sources are contextual
- Western Media
Conservapedia
- Without standardized citing.
- Gaps in sources / non-working links
- Sources taken from unofficial
sources: Youtube videos, Tweets,
telegram news | Russian state owned
/ sponsored media channels
- Misuse of Western news sources
(While fighting alleged "separatists" in Donbas, Zelensky called for
war against China to protect separatists in Taiwan when he
addressed the Shangri-La Dialogue summit in Singapore on June 11,
2022.) .[149]
- Attacking oppositional news outlets
