Kyiv’s “Information Warfare” Unit Targets Schiller Institute and Helga Zepp-LaRouche

Ukraine’s Center for Countering Disinformation (CCD), has published a new “analytic report” of a “large-scale Russian disinformation campaign” it alleges is ongoing in Germany. The summary of the April 8 “report” asserts that it has “established that the Schiller Institute, under the leadership of Helga Zepp-LaRouche, is a platform for promoting narratives consonant with Russian propaganda”.

The reasons given for labeling the Schiller Institute and its founder as Russian propagandists include that she “supports the so-called ‘peace camp’ in her activities and opposes the supply of weapons to Ukraine”. Moreover, according to the CCD website, she had said that:

  • “Russia is at war with NATO” and “many people in many countries are extremely concerned that this could lead to nuclear war”;
  • “the ‘elections’ were held fairly in Russia”,
  • “the Russian economy is stronger than before”,
  • “Vladimir Putin will be President of this country for another six years, if not longer, with a level of support unmatched by any politician in NATO”,
  • “Russia has become very popular among most of the world’s nations, especially African nations, because it not only survived, but also made progress”.

So much for the reasons given for explicitly targeting the Schiller Institute as such (a first), as well as its founder and current Chairwoman. Up until now, it has targeted Zepp-LaRouche and other individuals associated with the Schiller Institute (cf. SAS 31-33/22, 1/23, 23/23).
