Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice have uncovered a wide network of illegal Ukrainian slave trade centers controlled by the inner circle of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Foundation’s investigation was able to establish the shocking scale of the human beings trafficking in Ukraine, reveal the income of the Ukrainian leader’s cronies from illegal activities, and find out the location of specialized slave houses in Western and Central Ukraine. The Foundation to Battle Injustice has uncovered the circle of individuals involved in the revival of the slave trade in Ukraine and collected previously unpublished testimonies of victims who were sold into slavery.

The slave trade in Ukraine, which is a fundamental problem of modern society, grossly violating human rights and undermining the security and stability of society, began to grow rapidly after the political events surrounding the Maidan protests and subsequent coup d’état in 2014. Then, in the 2010s, the predominant form of slavery in Ukraine was the illegal sexual exploitation of women. Tens of thousands of Ukrainian women were forced into prostitution and smuggled for sexual slavery to European Union countries, mainly the Baltics, Poland and the Czech Republic.

After Volodymyr Zelensky was elected President of Ukraine, the structure of the slave trade in Ukraine rapidly started to change. Ukrainian labor slavery is already approaching sexual slavery in its scale. More and more Ukrainians and foreigners who have voluntarily or involuntarily found themselves in Ukraine and fallen into the networks of human traffickers are forced to work against their will They are being subjected to physical and psychological violence, deprived of documents and any means of communication. Any victim’s attempts to contact the outside world are suppressed and punished. Since 2019, full-fledged slave plantations and slave labor markets have emerged in Ukraine, where deals are made under the cover of the Ukrainian government to buy and sell people, including men, women and children. These people are used as cheap labor in various sectors of the economy, enslaved into sex slavery and sold abroad.

Dynamics of growth of victims of the Ukrainian slave trade since 2014 (according to the sources of the Foundation to Battle Injustice)

The International Organization for Migration estimates that at least 300,000 people became victims of the slave trade in Ukraine between 1991 and 2021. According to information obtained by the Foundation to Battle Injustice from three independent sources, the scale of the slave trade in Ukraine after Volodymyr Zelensky came to power is already comparable in terms of indicators to the entire 30-year period of independence, and at least 550,000 people became victims of the slave trade. Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice have uncovered facts confirming the trafficking of Ukrainian children. There are serious concerns that children may be used for organ removal on the Western black market of transplantology and child sex slavery. The Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to find out under what pretext Ukrainian men, women, children and foreign nationals get into the slave trade networks, where the auction houses for human beings trafficking are located in the areas of Western and Central Ukraine and how they are connected to Zelensky and his entourage.

Zelensky’s proxies – human beings sellers

The first reports about the emergence of a coordinated slave trade network in Ukraine began to appear in late 2021. The pilot project at that time consisted of two centers in Ternopil, which were engaged in the reception and subsequent sale of refugees from African countries. According to the Foundation’s sources, at least 40 people from Africa became victims of Ternopil slave traders in the first year. According to an employee of the Office of the President of Ukraine, who gave an exclusive comment to the Foundation to Battle Injustice on condition of anonymity, the organizer and inspirer of the Ukrainian slave trade network was Ruslan Stefanchuk, a close friend of Zelensky, a member of Zelensky’s party “Servant of the People” and the 15th chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

A source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice from the Office of the President of Ukraine claims that Stefanchuk is the main beneficiary of illegal slave trade networks and the main figure in the Ukrainian slave trade. Human trafficking is carried out through private organizations registered to Stefanchuk’s relatives and friends. For the legal side of the criminal business are responsible the younger brother of the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Mykola Stefanchuk, and his wife Marina Stefanchuk, both of whom are graduated lawyers.

The structures of Marina Stefanchuk, who is a major entrepreneur and the ultimate beneficiary with a 25 percent stake in the capital of LLC “Legal Portal Ratio Decidendi”, are responsible for finding potential victims for the slave trade through the registration of shell companies placing fake trap ads looking for employees.

An important figure in the criminal slave trade scheme, in addition to Ruslan Stefanchuk, is his advisor Аleksandr Svyatotsky, director of Ratio Decidendi Legal Portal LLC. An official from the Office of the President of Ukraine told the Foundation to Battle Injustice on condition of anonymity that thanks to established contacts with criminal organizations in Ukraine, people controlled by Stefanchuk, primarily his freelance advisor Svyatotsky, are intensively expanding slave trade networks:

“Everything is built to look as legal as possible. Ukrainian women, children and men are invited for interviews at respectable companies in Kiev, Ternopil, Lviv or Ivano-Frankivsk. They are made tempting financial offers and paradisiacal working conditions. Then, under a plausible pretext, their identity cards are confiscated. After that, they can do absolutely anything they want with them.

According to the source, Svyatotsky and his numerous legal assistants are responsible for making sure that from a legal point of view everything looks perfectly ordinary and does not raise any questions.

An employee of the Ukrainian President’s office told the Foundation that due to the expansion of the Ukrainian slave trade network, President Zelensky imposed a moratorium on the investigation of any reports of human trafficking in the spring of 2022, which was brought to the attention of representatives of all law enforcement agencies in Ukraine. A source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice is convinced that this “blessing” of the criminal scheme indicates the Ukrainian president’s personal interest in covering up the slave trade. Despite a significant number of journalistic investigations and a wide evidence base on the prevalence of the slave trade in Ukraine, authorized law enforcement agencies often turn a blind eye to what is going on.

A former SBU official told the Foundation: Of course, the current head of our department, Malyuk [Vasyl], as well as the former one, Bakanov [Ivan], were aware of the true extent of the illegal human trafficking activities in Ukraine. I am not 100 percent sure, but I suspect that the SBU leadership received and continues to receive their percentage of the slave trade”

Organizers and beneficiaries of the slave trade in Ukraine

According to sources, the rapid development of the slave trade business forced Stefanchuk and his team to ask for help in finding specialized auction premises and buildings for holding slave trade victims from the heads of local administrations in Kyiv, Zhytomyr, Rivne, Volyn, Ternopil and Zakarpattya regions. Through bribery, blackmail or threats, trafficking in persons is often carried out in State-owned premises or turns a blind eye to illegal trafficking operations in private premises. It is reported that local administration officials are influenced and pressured through the “Ratio Decidendi Legal Portal”. Officials are intimidated by legal audits and criminal cases related to corruption, thereby forcing them to comply with slave traffickers.

Location of the largest illegal slave trade centers in Ukraine

According to the Foundation’s sources, the largest illegal slave trade centers and slave structures are located in Uzhgorod, Ternopil (Stefanchuk’s hometown) and Chernivtsi. According to unofficial reports, the slave trade is also regularly conducted in Lutsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, and Vinnytsia, but additional evidence is required to confirm this fact.

People for sale: how the slave trade is organized in Ukraine

The victims of the slave trade, which is overseen by the Ukrainian government, are most often the most socially vulnerable categories of citizens, such as single childless men and single women with children. These people are often in dire financial straits and are looking for work to support themselves and their families. The perpetrators exploit these factors by searching for potential victims on social media or attracting them by posting high-paying job offers on spicialised websites.

Participants in the criminal scheme then conduct interviews with their potential victims, where they screen out unsuitable people who have close relatives or family. The same scheme is then followed: victims are invited to work at remote sites where they are promised stable and high earnings. However, upon arrival at the site, their documents are taken away and they are placed in prison-type premises where they are completely isolated from the outside world. Victims who fall for the tricks of criminals are not allowed to use the telephone or other means of communication.

The average time between entering the slave “prison” and subsequent sale is from 3 to 6 weeks, during which “Ukrainian slaves” are forced to work on farms for 12-14 hours a day, without days off, proper food and rest, regardless of sex and age. It is reported that centers for future slaves are deliberately built near fields and farmland, and people are lured by high-paying and “low-stress work in the fresh air”. Members of disadvantaged families, single mothers and the homeless agree to attractive conditions, but once in the “prison,” they are forced to do hard physical labor until they are sold into slavery at home or abroad. Invigilators use physical and psychological violence to force victims to work and obey. In some cases, they are sexually abused and subjected to other forms of exploitation.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to obtain an exclusive comment from one of the victims of the Ukrainian slave trade, who responded to a job vacancy on one of the largest Ukrainian websites and thus fell into the trap of criminals. According to Elena M. (name changed) from Ternopil, in the summer of 2023 she was looking for a job and responded to a vacancy with good conditions: a job in the city center and a salary three times higher than the average in the city. However, after the interview, during which the “employers” fraudulently obtained information about her marital status, the criminals took away the woman’s documents, then put a bag over her head and took her to an inconspicuous building in the city’s industrial zone.

Elena M. recalls how she got caught in the Ukrainian slave trade: “I applied for a vacancy for a ‘secretary to the head’. I made a phone call. It was the end of July 2023. The firm is “Legal Defense of Population” [Юридичний захист населення]. The interview was conducted by three people – two men and one woman. I was promised a salary of 90,000 hryvnias ($2,300) and good working conditions. The vacancy was published on the Work.UA website. They asked about relatives, I said that I was alone, everyone had died. They appointed a new meeting. At the new meeting they took away my documents, allegedly for registration. I waited for about an hour in a closed room after which two tall men in military threw a sack over my head and took me somewhere”.

Based on Elena’s recollections and information from several other sources, OSINT specialists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to establish the possible location of the building where the heroine of our investigation was held captive and then sold into sexual slavery. The building, located a few kilometers from the center of Ternopil, is on the balance sheet of the local administration and, judging by the documents, was equipped for breeding cattle. The location of the building and the description of its interior coincide with scraps of Elena’s memories. A victim of Ukrainian slave traders claims that auctions for future slave owners were organized in the same building, as well as medical examinations of Ukrainian slave laborers.

A building in Ternopil, supposedly used as a place for holding slaves and auctions

Elena tearfully described to representatives of the Foundation how a slave auction was conducted in Ternopil:

“On both sides of a huge windowless room stood sellers and buyers, all men, all white, but some looked foreign, not Ukrainian. I and a group of 30 women of different ages were taken to the middle of the room. Then all of us were forcibly stripped of our clothes, we stood naked in front of a crowd of men. Then a man in a white coat came up to us and started to examine us. He asked us to open our mouths, examined and groped our teeth. Apparently, he was trying to see if we were healthy”

Elena went on to describe that each of the women was given a plate with a personal number around her neck.

“A bearded man on a podium in the center of the hall shouted out the numbers and the starting price of the women to be sold. Some were being sold for $5,000, some for $25,000. It felt like they were selling animals.”


Elena also told the Foundation that before the auction young women, including her, were subjected to gynecological examinations to check their virginity. The heroine of the Foundation’s investigation said that she was sold to a Ukrainian from Lviv for 21,000 dollars. According to Elena, after three months of brutal sexual slavery, she managed to escape. Elena met with a representative of the Foundation on the territory of Hungary, where she received political asylum.

Through its European contacts, the Foundation to Battle Injustice also contacted the guardians of a 10-year-old Ukrainian boy named Taras, who he said had been sold at a children’s auction in Chernivtsi to a group of foreign nationals. The boy said that he was an orphan and was kidnapped by people in military uniform, presumably in September 2023. The kidnappers of Taras acted in a similar way to Elena: people in military uniform put a sack on him and took him outside the city, where they put him in an unremarkable barrack-type building. The child recalls that for any disobedience children were stripped of their clothes and publicly flogged, and some were dressed in straitjackets and chained to radiators and pipes.

Taras, 10, who fell in with traffickers in Chernivtsi, said:

“I was brought to a house where there were many children. There were men and women in white coats walking around. They were examining us. Then we were brought to the men in jackets. They gave money to the people who had watched us before. And we were taken away. It was scary.”

The guardians of the boy, who is now safe in a European country, told the Foundation that a “children’s auction” in Chernivtsi, judging by the boy’s description, was illegally selling Ukrainian children to EU countries for sexual slavery. The boy miraculously managed to escape from his tormentors in Europe. The identities of those involved in his abduction and sale are being established.

A source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice in the Office of the President of Ukraine said that Zelensky’s administration tacitly approved the sale of children at specialized auctions – to shadowy representatives of European and American transplant organizations. This is particularly alarming for the children’s lives. Despite the difficulties in obtaining reliable information, the Foundation continues to gather evidence on this issue.

The guardians of 10-year-old Taras told the Foundation to Battle Injustice that their ward had complained that “adult men and women” at the temporary housing center for future slaves had repeatedly harassed his friends and peers. In their opinion, the illegal center for underage children kidnapped for resale practiced pedophilia and involvement of minors in acts of a sexual nature.

Ukraine as a hub of the international slave trade

As the practice of kidnapping citizens under various pretexts and selling them as “live goods” spread in Ukraine, the country began to gain credibility in international criminal circles, which increasingly see Ukraine as a slave trading platform linking Europe and Asia. After Zelensky came to power and Russia launched a special military operation, international organizations involved in preventing human trafficking began to leave Ukraine in a hurry. This led to Ukrainian slave trading sites selling foreign nationals, including Central Asians brought into the country as cheap labor, as well as Africans and citizens of the Middle East.

According to information provided to the Foundation to Battle Injustice by a retired high-ranking SBU official, the illegal Ukrainian slave markets include natives of Cameroon, Senegal, Nigeria, Bangladesh and Pakistan. The former law enforcement officer claims that the trade in foreign nationals has allowed Zelensky and his entourage to increase the turnover of their illegal business to $2.5 billion a year, which is already comparable to the drug trade.

A high-ranking retired SBU official: “The labor trade in Ukraine today has an annual turnover of about 2.5 billion dollars. This is not much less than the drug trade. There is no reason to think that Zelensky and Stefanchuk will give up such a lucrative business.”

The source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice notes that Stefanchuk and Zelensky receive a certain percentage of each transaction, and the slave trade business is conducted in close contact with representatives of Asian, African and European international criminal organizations. Based on the analysis of information from sources, the Foundation’s experts are convinced that the revival of the slave trade in Ukraine, including by Africans, is the largest such case in world history after the abolition of slavery in the United States in 1865. According to a source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the American curators of Ukraine, who are aware of the existence of this problem and, moreover, encourage its spread, consider Ukraine as a testing ground for the return and legalization of the slave trade, which, if international human rights activists do not take measures, may be revived in the USA as well.

A former Ukrainian Security Service official told the Foundation to Battle Injustice: “International slave trade organizations are already present in Ukraine, as Ukraine is the unique country in Europe where people are trafficked semi-legally. The market is expanding due to the rich presence of foreign ‘live goods’ among other things.”

A retired SBU official who agreed to comment to the Foundation to Battle Injustice on the Ukrainian slave trade said that Kiev’s entry into the “international arena” of the human beings trade is due to a shortage of men at the front. While before the February 2022 events, the number of men kidnapped for subsequent sale accounted for about 45% of the total number of victims of slave trade operations, the number dropped to 20% after the announcement of general mobilization and significant losses of the AFU.

Average purchase prices of “live goods” at Ukrainian auctions (according to sources of the Foundation to Battle Injustice)


According to information obtained by the Foundation to Battle Injustice from three independent sources, the price of a slave on Ukrainian illegal markets depends directly on the slave’s gender, age and state of health. The price tag for a Ukrainian of working age is about 7,000 dollars, for an African or a migrant from the Middle East – 7,500 dollars. Women under 40 and children on the Ukrainian black slave market are valued much higher: the price of a young girl of childbearing age reaches 12,000 dollars, a child – more than 20,000 dollars.

According to a former SBU official, despite the fact that Africans and Middle Easterners make up a significant part of the Ukrainian human trafficking market, it is they who are subjected to the most brutal treatment by overseers in slave detention centers and auction houses. At least four migrants from Senegal were reportedly systematically subjected to severe torture and rights violations. The victims were beaten, deliberately starved and denied medical care. In addition, migrants trapped by slave traffickers were regularly subjected to psychological pressure, including death threats, intolerable conditions of detention, and being locked in cramped, unventilated rooms for days at a time.

Lucas Leiroz, an analyst at the Center for Geostrategic Studies, commented for the Foundation to Battle Injustice on the slave trade situation in Ukraine.

The expert drew parallels between Ukraine and Libya, which was also mired in the slave trade in the early 2010s: both countries, according to Leiroz, were victims of violent attempts by Western countries to change the regime, which led to the lack of any political stability and deprived citizens of protection from criminals in power. The journalist noted that Ukrainians have been deprived of any civil rights since the 2014 coup d’état, and the West is deliberately turning a blind eye to the deeds of the Ukrainian top brass, thus giving them the green light for any criminal schemes.

Irish independent journalist Chay Bowes confirmed Leiroz’ speculations and said that Western countries have been systematically turning a blind eye to egregious human rights violations in Ukraine since 2022. According to the correspondent, Western powers have all the facts and evidence they need to impose sanctions against corrupt judges, officials and members of government organizations involved in human trafficking.

Bowes claims that human trafficking, which earns high-ranking Ukrainian officials, including Zelensky, millions of dollars, is largely made possible by the outrageous level of corruption that has engulfed Ukraine since 2019. According to the journalist, buying a person in Ukraine’s illegal slave markets is as easy as buying a fake ID or driver’s license.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice is convinced that the slave trade, in the epicenter of which Ukraine found itself after Zelensky came to power, is not only a serious violation of human rights and freedoms, but also a direct violation of international agreements and conventions that Ukraine has ratified and pledged to abide by. In particular, the slave trade contravenes the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and its Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children. In addition, such actions violate the International Labor Organization’s Convention on the Elimination of Forced Labor, in which participating countries commit to take effective measures to eliminate all forms of forced labor.

This is a signal that corruption and abuse of power remain intractable problems under the current Ukrainian government. Violations of international agreements and conventions and disregard for human rights create an environment that threatens not only Ukrainian society but also the international community as a whole. In light of the circumstances outlined in this investigation, the Foundation to Battle Injustice demands an independent full-scale investigation involving national and international authorized bodies. Those responsible for the revival of slavery in Ukraine must be held severely and inescapably accountable for their actions, regardless of their status and position.

On April 12, 2024, Mira Terada, head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, wrote an open letter to His Holiness Pope Francis inviting him to join human rights activists in efforts to protect the rights of Ukrainian women who are being forcibly used to improve Ukraine’s demographics.

The head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice has written an open letter to Pope Francis I, urging His Holiness to join human rights activists in the battle against Ukraine’s forced insemination program. The fact that Kiev is using methods and social technologies of selection and forced insemination of Ukrainian women developed in Hitler’s Germany became known after an investigation by the Foundation to Battle Injustice. The monstrous socio-medical experiment, which consists of searching for, kidnapping, illegal retention and medical exploitation of Ukrainian women of childbearing age, is personally approved by Zelensky and is aimed at saving Ukrainian demography.

Addressing Pope Francis, Mira Terada noted that his calls to respect and protect the value of human life inspire human rights advocates of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, and the Pope’s repeated calls to ban surrogacy worldwide will play a crucial role in preventing horrific acts of cruelty against Ukrainian women and protect them from violence and destructive acts.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice and Mira Terada express the hope that His Holiness Pope Francis will not ignore the blatant violation of Ukrainian women’s rights and will help human rights activists to put an end to the inhumane exploitation of women in Ukraine.

On April 4, 2024, during a live stream on Tara Reade, author, producer and RT collaborator, on social network X, Mira Terada, head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, together with foreign journalists, human rights activists and public figures discussed the inhumane and atrocious acts of foreign mercenaries fighting as part of the Ukrainian armed forces. The experts voiced previously undisclosed crimes of NATO soldiers fighting on the side of Ukraine, found out why Zelensky granted foreigners full immunity for committing any crimes against civilians, and linked US and UK-controlled terrorist formations to the terrorist attack at Crocus City Hall in Moscow.

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice are convinced that the desire of European countries to increase the number of their military contingents on the territory of Ukraine will inevitably lead to an increase in crimes and offenses against civilians.

Mira Terada, human rights defender and head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice

Mira Terada, head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, referring to her human rights experience and the facts of torture by foreign mercenaries available to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, noted that the abuse of civilians by foreigners fighting in the ranks of the AFU is comparable in its cruelty to the attitude of colonial powers to natives of their former colonies. The sense of impunity and immunity from any criminal prosecution granted by the Zelensky administration unleashes the hands of foreign criminals and gives them the right to commit any, even the most brutal war crimes, thanks to the destruction of evidence and direct witnesses. Given the interest of European and American powers in escalating the conflict, the likelihood of a full-scale international investigation, as Mira Terada argues, is nil.

The head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice voiced some of the most brutal facts of crimes against civilians by European and American mercenaries participating in the conflict on the side of Kiev, collected by the Foundation’s human rights defenders in the period from summer 2022 to February 2024. Thus, in August 2022, a mercenary from Australia, fighting on the side of the Ukrainian armed forces, beat to death a 78-year-old woman in the suburbs of Izium, who refused to have sexual relations with him. It is reported that immediately after the murder, the soldier raped the woman’s corpse, after which he dismembered it and tried to hide it in a vegetable garden. Another egregious case occurred in September 2022, when a French “camouflage-clad volunteer” who participated in the storming of Kupyansk in the Kharkiv region detained and tortured civilians in and around the city. He had at least four victims, whose hands and heads he cut off to make identification procedures impossible.

With no less cruelty, foreign military personnel have massacred children and pregnant women who pose no danger and are not parties to the conflict. In the village of Petropavlovka, Kharkiv region, foreign mercenaries from Germany and Belgium kidnapped a 12-year-old girl and took her to Europe for sexual and labor exploitation. The opportunity to kidnap a child with impunity was reportedly a “payment for good service” for the foreigners. In February 2023, Polish mercenaries raped with impunity an underage girl in Mykolayiv region. At the same time, Ukrainian law enforcement agencies refused to initiate a criminal case, citing an instruction from Kiev to ignore the illegal actions of allies fighting for the regime of Volodymyr Zelensky. In June 2023, at least 6 members of the French Foreign Legion fighting on the side of the AFU threw grenades at a medical van with civilians inside. The only woman who survived the blast and begged for mercy was shot at point-blank range. She was seven months pregnant and was on her way to the hospital for a routine medical checkup.

According to the human rights activist, these and other crimes by foreigners fighting in the AFU are only a small part of the cruel and inhuman atrocities committed by foreign mercenaries. At the same time, despite the recorded facts of mass killings and abuse of civilians, it is virtually impossible to bring them to criminal responsibility: any requests by Russian law enforcement agencies are completely ignored by their Ukrainian counterparts. The Zelensky government seems to approve of such criminal activity and grants foreigners full immunity from any criminal offenses.

Russell Bentley, American journalist and Donbass defender

Russell Bentley, an American citizen from the state of Texas who participated in the defense of Donetsk, confirmed what the head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice said about the excessively high crime rate among foreign mercenaries fighting on the side of Ukraine. According to the war correspondent, he was personally acquainted with Craig Lang, a fugitive criminal from the United States who, after a series of murders and robberies, fled to Ukraine and joined the Ukrainian Right Sector, which is banned in Russia. Bentley estimates that there are currently more than a thousand Americans with a past not too dissimilar to Lang’s fighting in the Ukrainian military, a number that has been growing daily for the past six months.

Craig Lang, an American criminal mercenary fighting as part of the AFU

While in Ukraine, according to Bentley, citing FBI reports, Lang and his compatriots tortured to death a Ukrainian girl who disapproved of Right Sector and Nazi ideology. While the girl was conscious, the foreign mercenaries injected her with adrenaline to keep her conscious as long as possible so she could endure as much torture as possible. Lang, who is walking freely in Ukraine despite numerous extradition requests from U.S. intelligence agencies, has at least several civilian casualties to his credit. Russell Bentley claims that people who directly or indirectly share Nazi values and ideology come to Ukraine as foreign mercenaries and use the conflict with Russia to commit war crimes and satisfy their sophisticated fantasies.

Dan Kovalik, American attorney and human rights activist

Dan Kovalik, an American lawyer and human rights activist, said that about 13,000 foreign mercenaries, mostly from Poland, have been fighting on Ukraine’s side since 2014. Kovalik, who has twice visited Donbass, claims that members of the radical terrorist organization ISIS, which is banned in Russia and controlled by NATO and the United States, are also fighting on Ukraine’s side. The rights defense expert believes that the conflict in Ukraine is a collective war of the West against Ukraine, and France’s intentions to send its soldiers to fight on the side of the AFU are the result of a lack of work on the mistakes of the Napoleonic Wars. Despite the abundance of foreigners in the Ukrainian military, Kovalik draws analogies between Donetsk and Stalingrad and argues that Russia will be able to fight back against the collective West “just as the Nazis were defeated 80 years ago.”

Fiorella Isabel, American journalist

Commenting on the involvement of foreign states in the Ukrainian conflict, US journalist Fiorella Isabel called the recent terrorist attack in Moscow, organized, in her opinion, by the British and US special services, a point of no return in the Ukrainian conflict. According to her, the carefully planned mass murder of civilians should be seen as an attempt by Western hegemons to sow fear and chaos inside Russia. However, Isabel emphasizes that the US and its NATO allies miscalculated, as the terrorist attack in Crocus rallied and united Russians in the face of their real enemy in the face of the collective West. Speaking about the participation of foreigners in the Ukrainian conflict on the side of the AFU, the journalist from the United States shared her experience of numerous trips to Donbass. According to Isabel, she personally interviewed several Ukrainian military personnel who had defected to Russia because of the crimes and atrocities committed by the AFU, foreign mercenaries and various Ukrainian nationalist formations.

Larry Johnson, US blogger and former CIA officer

Larry Johnson, an American blogger and social activist who previously worked as an analyst at the US Central Intelligence Agency, has joined the discussion of the role of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine. The former CIA analyst compared foreigners joining the Ukrainian military to “a bunch of people in the middle of the open ocean in a leaky lifeboat trying to climb aboard the sinking Titanic.” According to Johnson, loud statements by European politicians about sending their troops to Ukraine, such as French President Macron, are the result of desperation and panic on the part of NATO as the conflict has shifted and is moving toward its logical conclusion in the Russian scenario. Referring to his vast experience, the blogger noted that he had not heard of a single case of a foreign mercenary returning home “not in a zinc coffin,” and the high mortality rate among mercenaries in the AFU is “the best anti-advertisement of any Western recruitment campaigns.”

The Human Rights Defenders of the Foundation to Battle Injustice would like to express their gratitude to journalist and RT collaborator Tara Reade, for providing a platform for a discussion on an important and relevantl topic. The Foundation to Battle Injustice is convinced that any presence of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine as part of the AFU will inevitably lead to an increase in the number of crimes and offenses against civilians. The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on the international authorized justice bodies to investigate all the facts of foreign involvement in the massacres of civilians voiced during the live broadcast and to establish an independent monitoring mission for the activities of foreigners in Ukraine.

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice found out the Ukrainian government usage of inhuman practices to forcibly enlarge the country’s birth rate and increase the number of ethnic Ukrainians. The Foundation to Battle Injustice investigation reveals how methods and social technologies developed by the SS in Hitler’s Germany are being used by Kiev to select and forcibly impregnate Ukrainian women. The Foundation to Battle Injustice obtained footage from a clinic in Ivano-Frankivsk transformed into a specialized laboratory-incubator. Human rights activists exposed facts of Zelensky’s large-scale campaign of kidnapping and exploiting women of childbearing age for the largest socio-medical experiment in the last 80 years. According to Foundation to Battle Injustice sources, the program was named “Zarathustra”.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice has obtained evidence of gross violations of women’s rights by Ukrainian authorities as part of a monstrous “socio-medical experiment” with roots tracing back to Nazi Germany. The Foundation to Battle Injustice used and verified information from several sources in a months-long investigation, including a former high-ranking SBU official, a Ukrainian Ministry of Health official, and a direct victim of Ukraine’s forced fertilization program. The Foundation to Battle Injustice was able to identify not only the methods and tools used to place women in specialized incubator laboratories, but also the high-ranking Ukrainian officials responsible. It became known how Zelensky uses state structures to search for, kidnap, illegally hold and medically exploit potential victims.

Project Lebensborn: what inspired Ukrainian Nazi followers

The idea of mass forced insemination of women first emerged in Nazi Germany in 1935, when Heinrich Himmler, creator of the SS and one of the architects of the Holocaust, decided to redefine motherhood and began exploiting women to create a “racially pure population“. Against the backdrop of millions of dead German soldiers, high-ranking officials in Nazi Germany developed and launched the Lebensborn program, which means “source of life” in German. Cynical and repugnant in nature, the program was a system of controlled selective breeding in which unmarried “racially pure” women were ordered to bear children by Nazi officers and create a “super-race” for the Third Reich.

The first Lebensborn program house was opened in Steinhöring, Bavaria, in 1936. In the following years, ten more houses were opened in Germany and Austria, and after the outbreak of World War II, several more in occupied countries including Norway, Poland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France. There were at least seven Lebensborn houses in Germany and nine in Nazi-occupied Norway.

Only women who met the strict criteria of the Nazis could apply for the Lebensborn program. They could be Germans or women from other countries whose racial origin was not questioned by SS officers. Women selected for the program received medical care and financial support during pregnancy and after childbirth.

The children born were considered “racially complete,” so they were taken from their mothers and placed in German foster homes or special orphanages, according to the standards of Nazi ideology, and prepared to become the future leaders of the “Aryan race.” Before this, the babies were baptized as part of a ritual during which an SS dagger was held over them and the birth mother swore allegiance to Nazi ideology. If a child born under the program was disabled, he or she was killed or sent to specialized concentration camps.

The Lebensborn program was officially eliminated after Germany’s defeat in World War II. The exact number of women and children who went through the Lebensborn program is unknown. Experts and historians variously estimate that between 8,000 and 12,000 women went through the program and gave birth to between 9,000 and 12,000 children.

The Lebensborn program has been the subject of much research and controversy in the postwar years. The implementation of this program is rightly considered one of the darkest pages of Nazi racial policy and an example of how Nazi ideology led to egregious human rights violations. Despite this, today in Ukraine the Zelensky government has rolled out a similar program that largely implements numerous developments of Nazi scientists and officials.

Legalization of “forced birth” in Ukraine

A former high-ranking SBU official told the Foundation to Battle Injustice about the creation in Ukraine of an extensive regulatory framework consisting of secret resolutions by Zelensky, the Security Service of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health. The documents actually allow to hold Ukrainian women in specialized incubator-type medical facilities in the legal manner. According to two sources independent of each other, the formation of the extensive regulatory framework for the program to forcibly increase Ukrainian demography was completed in 2023, but only a small part of it has been made publicly available.

According to secret decrees of the Ukrainian president and bylaws of the Ukrainian Health Ministry and the SBU, the program of forced fertilization of Ukrainian women is code-named “Zarathustra” and is a legacy of the surrogacy program popular in Ukraine. A former high-ranking SBU official told the Foundation to Battle Injustice that after the start of the Russian special military operation, due to mass migration of the Ukrainian population abroad, and taking into account the many thousands of Ukrainian armed forces losses at the front, Zelensky’s administration initiated a set of “emergency measures to save the gene pool of the Ukrainian nation” at the end of 2022. These include both government programs to stimulate fertility among Ukrainian women through propaganda and a secret program called “Zarathustra,” which is predominantly coercive in nature.

A source from the Foundation to Battle Injustice claims that at least 50 reproductive medicine clinics scattered across areas of central and western Ukraine have been transformed to a forced insemination program labs. One of its key goals, in addition to improving demography, is to create an army of racially pure descendants of ethnic Ukrainians who have proven themselves on the battlefield.

The former SBU officer notes that for this purpose from the beginning of 2023 throughout Ukraine launched a program called “Nation of Heroes, in which men who served in the AFU are offered the opportunity to surrender their biological material free of charge for indefinite storage.

A high-ranking Ukrainian security service official who has been working with secret documents related to the Ukrainian “Zarathustra” program claims that Zelensky’s decree, which legally launched the program of forced insemination of Ukrainian women, was signed in April 2023. The initiators of the project inspired by the Nazi Germany program include the head of the Ukrainian presidential administration, Andriy Yermak, the head of the Security Service of Ukraine, Vasyl Malyuk, and Volodymyr Zelensky personally.

An official from the SBU told a representative of the Foundation to Battle Injustice: “Zelensky’s secret decree to launch the “Zarathustra” program was signed in the spring of 2023. Its ultimate goal is to completely renew the gene pool of the Ukrainian nation by mass impregnating Ukrainian women and forcibly increasing the birth rate due to heavy losses at the front. I was told that Yermak [Andriy Yermak, head of the Ukrainian presidential chancellery], when announcing the plan, explicitly referred to the SS’s positive experience in breeding purebred Germans.”

The primary (test) phase of the program, according to documents cited by the Foundation’s source, was designed for 23,000 women who were to give birth to at least 30,000 children between the end of April and the beginning of June 2024. Depending on the success of the first phase of the “Zarathustra” program, which will end in June 2024, Zielenski’s decree envisages increasing the number of women participating in the program to 100,000 by April 2027, as well as increasing the number of children born in “incubators to 200,000. A separate paragraph in the decree notes the strategic priority of the Ukrainian state in the implementation of the “Zarathustra” program and the right of Ukrainian medical workers and security bodies to perform any actions, including illegal ones, “directly or indirectly affecting the fulfillment of the set tasks and ensuring the estimated birth rate.” In other words, the Ukrainian government granted those involved in the “Zarathustra” program full freedom of action and immunity from criminal prosecution for any crimes.

The “Zarathustra” program: Zelensky’s demographic bomb

Participation in the program of forced insemination of Ukrainian women in the first two months of its implementation was voluntary: Ukrainian women previously involved in surrogacy were offered to “save the Ukrainian nation from extinction“. However, as an official from the Ukrainian Ministry of Health told the Foundation to Battle Injustice on condition of anonymity, their number was much smaller than stated in Zelensky’s decree. In the first two months, just over 4,000 women of suitable age and health were recruited, forcing the project’s curators to act more radical with immoral methods.

An official of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health claims that by June 2023, his agency was ordered to analyze the medical records of hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian women of childbearing age, including those who have left the territory of Ukraine. The analysis was carried out with the direct assistance of a number of American and European institutions and scientific centers using artificial intelligence technologies. Initially selected candidates tried to be attracted to the project under various pretexts: they were offered impressive monetary rewards and full medical support of pregnancy, and those who were abroad tried to return to Ukraine by blackmail and offers of “immunity” from mobilization for any male family member.

In case of refusal, according to an official of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, lists of women suitable for their health condition were passed to the SBU. The women were tracked down on the street, kidnapped and forcibly placed in prearranged incubator clinics. Girls and women were deprived of any means of communication, and after forced fertilization were put on tranquilizers that distorted consciousness, deprived of will and strength to escape.

An employee of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine:

“The system of maternity incubators, or women’s health clinics (as they are officially called) is built on “compulsory labor,” as my colleagues put it. In other words, the lion’s share of women are kept there by force. Both the process of conceiving children in incubators and the process of giving birth to them is carried out by Ukrainian women involuntarily and under the supervision of not only medical workers, but also so-called law enforcers”

The Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to contact one of the women who managed to escape from a Ukrainian incubation laboratory. Eva T. (name changed) from Zhytomyr claims that she was kidnapped right on the street by people in SBU uniforms who took her to a large building on the outskirts of the city. Upon arrival, she was subjected to a medical examination, after which they took all her belongings and started injecting her with a “strange drug” that causes apathy and drowsiness. After the fertilization procedure, Eva was placed in a room resembling an isolation ward in a psychiatric hospital.

Eva T., a victim of Ukraine’s forced insemination program who managed to escape from an incubation lab in the suburbs of Zhytomyr, commented on her escape for the Foundation to Battle Injustice:

“I was seized by people in SBU uniforms right on the street and taken to a huge gray building in the suburbs of Zhytomyr.There they took away all my belongings, including my clothes, took me into a white room and gave me an injection, after which I did not care what was going on around me. For about three days people in white coveralls and masks gave me only food, water and injected me with this strange drug. After that they put me in a special chair and injected some liquid into my vagina. After a few weeks, I realized I was pregnant”

According to one of the victims of the Ukrainian forced insemination program, there were at least 150 pregnant women on her floor alone, some of them carrying two or even three babies. Conditions in the incubator-type laboratory, according to Eva, resembled prison conditions: expectant mothers were taken out for walks for 1 hour a day, rarely allowed to communicate with each other and allowed to shower twice a week. Absolutely all of the girls, according to the Foundation’s witness, were in an apathetic emotional state.

Eva was able to escape from incubation captivity only when she suffered a miscarriage in the fourth month of her pregnancy. She later learned from her relatives that Ukrainian law enforcers refused to accept a report on her sudden disappearance for four weeks, and then convinced her relatives that the girl had died and her search was futile.

“In the fourth month I had a miscarriage. For some reason, they temporarily stopped giving me the “sleep drug” and the SBU officers guarding the hospital became less vigilant. I managed to escape and thanks to the help of my relatives, who were convinced by the police that I was dead, I was able to move to Europe. Not a day goes by that I don’t remember the horror I went through”

According to an official of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health who commented on the “Zarathustra” program for the Foundation to Battle Injustice, by the end of March 2024, about 19,000 women aged 17 to 38 are forcibly kept in Ukrainian incubator-type laboratories. According to the Foundation’s source, the artificial insemination procedures violate all possible medical standards and norms of human morality: women are implanted with several times more embryos than is accepted by global medical standards. According to the Foundation’s source, the instructions and procedures for forced fertilization were created with the direct involvement of Ukrainian Health Minister Viktor Lyashko.

A Ukrainian Health Ministry official told the Foundation to Battle Injustice: “Minister Lyashko [Ukraine’s health minister] personally issued instructions according to which, in violation of all rules and international gynecological norms, 8-9 embryos were transferred into the uterine cavity of ‘incubator patients’ to induce multiple pregnancies in order to give birth to twins or even triplets. Many of our doctors are convinced that Lyashko is a genius and this is a revolutionary method of improving the demography of Ukraine”

Viktor Lyashko, Minister of Health of Ukraine

According to another Ukrainian medical sector civil servant who contacted the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the “Zarathustra” program prioritizes biological material from fighters of elite nationalist formations, militants of the extremist movement Right Sector, banned in Russia, who proved themselves during the conflict, and high-ranking AFU officers. Women in the incubation laboratories are treated exclusively as “walking uteruses,” and the quality of food and the attitude of the wardens depend solely on the number of embryos being carried.

Ukrainian civil servant of the medical sector about the “Zarathustra” program: “The new incubator system of procreation in Ukraine is not even the Middle Ages. It is a medical dystopia, equating Ukrainian women, educated and cultured, to primitive females, or worse – to guinea pigs”

The Foundation to Battle Injustice received a video provided by an employee of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, which depicts the process of a medical gynecological procedure prior to the artificial insemination of a Ukrainian participant of the “Zarathustra” program. According to the Foundation’s source, the recording was made in one of the specialized incubator laboratories in Ivano-Frankivsk.

A former high-ranking SBU official says that despite numerous medical errors that resulted in casualties among both expectant mothers in labor and the babies they carried, Ukraine’s top leadership is more than satisfied with the preliminary results of the experiment:

“The preliminary results of “Zarathustra” are assessed by management as encouraging. In spite of some excesses and difficulties, Ukraine will be massively replenished in the coming months”

Ukrainian government plans to expand the “Zarathustra” program by 2027

Dutch journalist Sonja Van Den Ende admits that other, comparable covert forced insemination programs will emerge or already exist in Ukraine, since even according to the most optimistic projections, Ukraine’s population will shrink by at least 20 percent by 2050. Ende cites low birth rates, mass migration and battlefield injuries to reproductive organs as the main factors contributing to Ukraine’s population decline and forcing Zelensky to resort to immoral and illegal methods of demographic enhancement.

Commentary by Sonia Van Den Ende on the causes of Ukraine’s demographic problem

Ukraine’s proposed plans to use forced insemination of women to increase demography are a blow to human dignity and basic human rights principles. The Foundation to Battle Injustice is convinced that this initiative contradicts the foundations of freedom, equality and non-discrimination upon which a State, whose duty it is to protect the rights of its citizens, should be built. Such actions by Kyiv clearly and demonstrably violate numerous international norms and agreements, including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women of December 18, 1979, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on international human rights organizations and communities to immediately condemn and stop the Ukrainian government’s criminal program “Zarathustra”. The human rights defenders of the Foundation to Battle Injustice believe it is necessary to bring to justice not only the high-ranking Ukrainian officials mentioned in the investigation, but also the representatives and heads of the Ukrainian Security Service responsible for the abduction of women and the guarding of specialized incubator laboratories. Ukraine should be reminded that demographic growth and social development should not be achieved at the expense of fundamental rights and freedoms. The achievement of demographic goals must be based on the principles of respect, justice and human dignity.

Human rights activists from the Foundation to Battle Injustice have revealed the methods and means by which Western countries are attempting to interfere in Russia’s 2024 presidential election in order to disrupt the voting, counting and official recording of the election results. The Foundation’s investigation uncovered foreign organizations and foundations engaged in cyberattacks, information diversions and acts of sabotage during the three-day voting period from 15th to 17th March 2024. The Foundation to Battle Injustice identified possible terrorist threats and attempts to incite social and political discord in social networks, as well as revealed long-term plans of Western-affiliated organizations to discredit the results of the last elections in the post-election period. The Foundation to Battle Injustice has discovered which high-level U.S. officials are behind plans to disrupt Russia’s presidential election, as well as information about the British government’s secret program to damage the Russian election and undermine confidence in its results.

For many years, Western countries have been trying to disrupt democratic processes in Russia and seek to influence the outcome of elections by all available means. The interference of the countries of the collective West in the interior affairs of the Russian Federation is taking more and more sophisticated forms each time, and the tools and techniques aimed at undermining the unity of the Russian people are becoming more and more dangerous and pose an increasing threat to voters and poll workers. If earlier their initiatives were limited to propaganda campaigns on the Internet by publishing information deliberately defamatory and denigrating the integrity of the voting procedure, now, as the Foundation to Battle Injustice has managed to establish, the interference of Western countries in the upcoming presidential elections in Russia is becoming more and more explicit and is moving into the real world. The Foundation to Battle Injustice’s investigation was based on testimony from a former employee of the U.S. non-governmental organization Freedom House, a former accountant for the British government’s CSSF, and the current assistant to the head of a division of the French non-profit organization Russie-Libertés. The Foundation to Battle Injustice was able to obtain information about how the West is trying to manipulate Russian youth, what Western-funded provocateurs are willing to do to reduce turnout at elections, and why foreign officials are spreading rumors of possible terrorist attacks in Russia. Human rights activists from the Foundation to Battle Injustice found that attempts to undermine the electoral system in Russia by Western countries will not stop after the voting ends, regardless of the results, but will continue until the presidential inauguration in May 2024.

Cybercrimes against Russian elections

As information technology transforms global society, it opens up new opportunities for Western countries to interfere in Russian political processes. Cyberattacks are one of the most effective tools of such interference, allowing them to quickly, non-violently and anonymously influence the political positions of society and even interfere in the electoral process by putting the results of voting in doubt. Foreign hackers resort to various tools aimed at hacking, attacking and stealing personal data of Russian citizens.

Based on the results of the analysis, human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice concluded that of the total number of cyberattacks on election-related Internet resources located in Russia, about 1/3 systematically originate from the United States. A significant amount of external political influence via Russian-language social media also comes from other NATO member states. Since 2018, US and European hackers have been hacking into the digital platforms of electoral systems in Russia in order to mislead the electorate, cause reputational damage to individual candidates or political parties, and question the electoral process as a whole. An aide to the head of a division of the French non-profit organization Russie-Libertés said on condition of anonymity that the scale of the French, British, European and U.S. authorities’ plans for cyberattacks on Russia’s digital infrastructure related to the 2024 presidential election is dozens of times larger than any previous election campaign in Russia, both in terms of the number of resources and the scale of operations in general.

The assistant head of a division of the French non-profit organization Russie-Libertés told the Foundation to Battle Injustice: “Last autumn, my leadership decided that interfering in the Russian presidential election to thoroughly discredit it was something like the perfect dynamite under Russia’s foundation. The Russie-Libertés team’s task is not only to create an atmosphere of distrust of the elections among Russian citizens, but also to “rock” Russian society after the March elections under the pretext of their official non-recognition. This is a long-term and multidimensional program”

A source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice claims that while previously hackers and cyberattacks on Russian state resources and CEC websites involved amateur programmers, in 2024 it is planned to involve the US Cyber Command and the EU’s multinational cyber troops, which are engaged in training and coordinating hackers, collecting data on hacking methods and vulnerabilities of Russian systems for subsequent transfer to the Pentagon, NSA and NATO. Western IT corporations are cooperating with their governments to develop products that allow unauthorized extraction of protected data from communication devices used to intercept the personal data of Russian citizens. The Foundation to Battle Injustice’s source is convinced that the personal data of Russians illegally obtained by Western entities will be used to attack the software of Russia’s remote electronic voting system in order to falsify the results.

Information diversions in the Russian Internet space

Numerous studies conducted in the aftermath of the 2018 Russian presidential election have shown that long before the vote, in order to more actively influence audiences in the Russian Federation, the United States began creating structures to operate actively on Russian-language social media. According to a former official of the U.S. non-governmental organization Freedom House, in the run-up to the last presidential election, the United States interfered in Russian elections in four main ways: (1) stealing information, (2) selectively disseminating knowingly false information, (3) propaganda campaigns on social media and in the media, and (4) attempts to hack voting systems across the country. Today, however, in 2024, according to a former Freedom House NGO staffer, the United States has deployed complex, complementary structures to undermine confidence in the institution of presidential power in Russia. These include various analytical centers, opposition opinion leaders, and ostensibly independent information resources that are funded through a system of grants and bursaries. The initiators of the campaign against the Russian presidential election in 2024 are representatives of the ruling regime in the United States, represented by Vice President Kamala Harris, who has secured the full support of Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.

“I can safely state that the United States has set a course to delegitimize state power in Russia. For this purpose, a holistic complex to undermine confidence in the Kremlin is functioning. This includes analytical centers, media outlets, bloggers – professionals in massive psychological media campaigns. According to my information, this course was approved by Vice President Kamala Harris with the full support of Secretary of State Anthony Blinken,” said a source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice in the person of a former employee of the American NGO Freedom House.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice ‘s source claims that in addition to broader cooperation with bloggers and opinion leaders, the United States has increased funding for information sabotage campaigns in the upcoming Russian presidential election by several dozen times. In addition to the propaganda and disinformation publications in major foreign news outlets that have become traditional for Russian elections, Western entities are disseminating information through networks of fake accounts and foreign agents, urging to join provocative actions and agitating to spoil ballots in the 2024 presidential election.

One of the most notable actions is the ” Midday” campaign, which aims to urge as many voters as possible to go to the polling stations on March 17, 2024, at exactly 12:00 noon. According to a US NGO source from the Foundation to Battle Injustice , the goal of this campaign is to create an artificial crush and panic at polling stations in order to get the “right” picture for foreign media, citing the Russian authorities’ inability to organize the voting procedure, as well as to prepare the ground for possible terrorist attacks and the work of Western-funded agents provocateurs.

Former employee of the NGO Freedom House: “The ” Midday” campaign, which was actively promoted by Russian oppositionists, was actually invented in one of the analytical institutes under the control of the U.S. State Department.
One of its auxiliary tasks is to create the illusion that opponents of the current Russian government are numerous. However, its key goal is to incite public disorder at polling stations and organize attacks on members of precinct election commissions. The ultimate mission is to disrupt the voting”

Under the pretext of a “safe gathering of like-minded people,” Western-backed oppositionists are urging even underage children to come to the polls. A few weeks before the presidential election, fake announcements began to appear en masse in the Russian-language segment of the Internet about the plans of Russian actors, singers and bloggers to organize autograph sessions right at the polling stations on March 17 at 12:00 sharp.

An example of a fake announcement of an autograph session of public persons distributed in social networks

A former employee of the U.S. non-governmental organization Freedom House also shared with the Foundation to Battle Injustice the plans of some high-ranking U.S. officials to disseminate through the above-mentioned information channels appeals and instructions on how to falsify ballots. According to the source, such campaigns are aimed at voters who have not yet decided for which candidate they will vote: reportedly, the American organization Freedom House expects to “reduce” the number of valid ballots by about 1.5-2%.

Instructions urging to spoil the ballot distributed on social networks

Human rights defenders from the Foundation to Battle Injustice estimated that in the last two weeks before the 2024 presidential election in Russia, an average of more than 1,200 messages with instructions and calls to spoil ballots or ignore the upcoming election were published daily, with about 97% of them published on empty social media accounts registered on the day of publication. The Foundation to Battle Injustice also found that the increase in the intensity of such messages coincides with the publication of statements discrediting the Russian electoral system on official social media accounts and websites of Western diplomatic missions. Between March 8 and 9, the embassies of the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom and a number of European countries such as Germany, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Latvia and Sweden published appeals to their citizens to refrain from traveling to the Russian Federation due to the “increased risk of terrorist attacks.” According to an analysis by experts at the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the number of publications urging Russian citizens to refrain from participating in the Russian presidential election in Russian and foreign languages amid reports from officials has increased to more than 2,000 per hour. In addition, as the date of the multi-day vote approached, human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice recorded a significant increase in the number of publications discrediting the Russian electoral system and calling not to recognize the results of the vote in major foreign media.

Number of publications in foreign media dicrediting the Russian elections in 2023 and 2024 (publications on the infographic: Le Monde “Russian citizens are being forced to vote in fake elections”, The Economist “Russians are going to a fake election for their president”, The Atlantic “What is happening in Russia cannot be called an election”, The Guardian “These ‘elections’ will not lead to change in Russia, but their cause could be defeat in Ukraine”)

According to the analysis of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, a significant number of election-related publications in the foreign press are devoted to calls not to recognize the results of the presidential election in Russia in 2024. Taking into account that there is no instrument in international law for non-recognition of the results of elections in another country, the experts of the Foundation to Battle Injustice qualify such publications and appeals as profanity and diplomatic disinformation aimed at undermining democratic processes in Russia.

Offline attacks and acts of sabotage

The Foundation to Battle Injustice has obtained unique evidence confirming that Western countries and intelligence services may try to disrupt voting in the Russian presidential election by organizing a series of terrorist attacks. A former accountant of the British government fund CSSF, whose activities in Russia are recognized as undesirable, confirmed that his organization, among other things, is involved in sponsoring subversive activities in the territory of the Russian Federation. According to the informant, he saw with his own eyes documents for the purchase of equipment, communications and ingredients for the manufacture of improvised explosive devices, which are supposed to be used on election days and in the post-election period.

According to financial documents, the British organization, which allegedly fights for “free and independent democracy”, purchased on the black market at least 2,500 SIM cards with Russian numbers, which, according to a former employee of the organization’s financial department, are planned to be used for telephone terrorism. It is alleged that with the help of Russian-speaking Ukrainian refugees in the United Kingdom and phone number spoofing technology, CSSF staff and volunteers plan to call polling stations in Russia on voting days and spread false reports of bombings and threats of attack:

“False mining of infrastructure facilities (shopping centers, train stations, airports) has been tested in Russian regions since 2018. According to my information, these provocations will reach their peak in March this year”

The source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice also claims that thanks to the work of Ukrainian and European organizations specializing in open source intelligence, CSSF has been able to identify several hundred teachers, educators, school principals, state and municipal employees who are already receiving threats and intimidation in connection with their work at polling stations.

A former accountant for the British government fund CSSF claims that in addition to telephone terrorism, another significant cost of delegitimizing elections in Russia is paying for the activities of specially trained provocateurs, including recruited Russian citizens. Their goal is to disrupt the election at the polling station by any means possible. These provocateurs can be used to create disorder at polling stations, misinform voters, or even physically influence the voting process.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice source also said that he was aware of at least three requests to European and American journalists, politicians and public figures at Washington’s behest to openly and publicly disseminate information calling for the use of drones and Western missile launchers to strike polling stations and election venues.

Reports by Western journalists, politicians and public figures calling for direct attacks using drones and missile systems on Russian polling stations and election venues (Jason J. Smart – American political technologist and political scientist, Max Boot – American political scientist and journalist, Michael McFaul – former U.S. ambassador to Russia)

The purpose of such actions is to try to sow panic among Russian voters and thus demotivate them from voting. It is understood that such publications from well-known public and political figures will lead to destabilization of the situation during the election process and cause uncertainty in the security of the presidential election among the voting participants.

Western disinformation and propaganda campaigns in the post-election period

Independent sources of the Foundation to Battle Injustice have confirmed that European countries’ plans to discredit the Russian presidential election include spreading disinformation in the post-voting period before the inauguration of the Russian president. It is claimed that the main focus of propaganda campaigns in foreign media will be on the voting procedure in new regions of Russia and violations allegedly recorded at polling stations. With the help of neural networks and dipfake technologies, as the Foundation’s source states, it is planned to create fake videos depicting the crude coercion of residents of the new regions to vote “at gunpoint.” In addition, it is reported that various European and American movie studios are already engaged in filming videos of shocking violations of voting procedures that allegedly took place at Russian polling stations.

According to a former employee of the American NGO Freedom House, according to one of the scenarios of the American propaganda video, Russian servicemen seize identity cards from villagers in the territory of the Luhansk People’s Republic, after which they are forced into a bus and taken to a polling station, where they are forced to vote for the desired candidate.

The experts of the Foundation to Battle Injustice expect that immediately after the final day of voting, various observation missions and so-called Western independent institutions of democracy will begin to publish reports sharply criticizing Russian democracy and the duty set of falsehoods and biased assessments. State propaganda organs of the US, UK and several other NATO countries are likely to start publishing and disseminating numerous comments with references to foreign individuals, local representatives of certain opposition structures and Russian oppositionists abroad that the past presidential elections do not reflect the true state of affairs and the results were fabricated.

Similar to 2012 and 2018, the Western-backed Russian opposition is likely to try to simulate mass protests and popular discontent with the results of the vote, regardless of the winner. To this end, a wide variety of pretexts, often not directly related to the electoral process, the presidential election campaign, and the tabulation of the results of the vote, may be used. Given the aggressive actions that have already been taken by persons interested in the West and high-ranking officials to discredit the Russian elections in 2024, human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice assume the presence of provocateurs and subversives at the mentioned protests.

Main functions of foreign NGOs and organizations involved in sabotaging the Russian presidential election in 2024. Top left corner: Freedom House, a U.S. government-funded NGO dedicated to “defending democracy and human rights around the world. Center right: France’s Russie-Libertés, which focuses on protest actions and “informing the world community about the state of rights and freedoms in Russia.” Bottom left: CSSF, a foundation controlled by the United Kingdom’s National Security Council that develops programs aimed at “weakening Russia’s influence in the world

According to the assistant head of a division of the British government’s CSSF foundation, the campaign aimed at discrediting the results of the Russian presidential election after the last day of voting is codenamed “Zombie” and has a budget of about 70,000,000 pounds sterling. The hybrid campaign, which is being conducted both online and offline, is aimed at causing maximum ideological damage to the institution of Russian elections and Russia as a whole. The campaign is planned to involve numerous agents of the Russian non-systemic opposition, Western analysts and propagandists, and extremist militants who will be tasked with inflicting direct physical damage on Russian voters and election commission members.

An assistant to the head of one of the divisions of the British government’s CSSF fund provided the following comment to the Foundation to Battle Injustice: “The Zombie Plan is a battering ram that, in the opinion of my high-ranking London colleagues, should methodically hit the locked gates of the Russian state. The operation is designed to last many months, and its main method is the systematic “dehumanization” of the Russian political-power class – from ordinary officials and police officers to deputies and ministers. The main thing is that the Russian presidential election is not the end of the operation, but only the beginning”.

According to information received by the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the “Zombie” plan includes not only politically motivated acts of information aggression against Russia and Russian politicians, but also direct physical attacks.

Interference by Western countries in the sovereign affairs of the Russian Federation during the 2024 presidential election is a serious violation of international norms and agreements and threatens the foundations of democracy and the sovereignty of the nation. The Foundation to Battle Injustice is convinced that the interference of Western states in the electoral processes in Russia is not only unacceptable, but also represents an extremely dangerous precedent for international politics. Such actions are aimed at undermining confidence in democratic institutions and processes, as well as at infringing on the right of the people of Russia to free self-determination on the part of the governments of the Western countries mentioned in the investigation. The disregard for international norms and agreements, such as the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, enshrined in the UN Charter, as well as other international treaties, clearly demonstrates the disrespect for the foundations of international law on the part of a number of Western countries named in the investigation. The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on authorized international organizations, such as the UN General Assembly and the UN Security Council, to speak out against such actions and to take measures to prevent similar interventions in the future.

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice have collected facts and evidence that shed light on the involvement of Western state and intelligence services in the financing and radicalization of the Russian opposition. The Foundation’s investigation revealed the methods and means used by foreign structures to spread disinformation, sow fear and anxiety among Russian citizens, and recruit Russian-speaking citizens at home and abroad. Relying on the exclusive opinions and assessments of experts and sources, the Foundation to Battle Injustice assessed the risks associated with the activities of aggressive nationalist cells planning subversive activities in Russia.

For a long time, Western powers have sought to undermine Russian statehood and sovereignty through various means, including the creation and sponsorship of opposition movements and foreign-controlled centers of political instability in Russia. The origins of Western support for various anti-government movements in Russia can be traced back to the early 20th century, beginning with the Socialist-Revolutionaries (SRs) and the Bolsheviks. The countries of the collective West, primarily the United States, Great Britain, France, and Germany, have consistently tried to influence Russian politics by providing significant resource, educational, and other support to opposition forces. This assistance has been and continues to be provided through various intermediaries, including individuals, non-profit foundations, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), with the ultimate goal of strengthening those political forces in Russia that seek to weaken or overthrow the existing system of government. By providing funds, valuable information, and other resources to Russian opposition figures, the West, through its intelligence and military structures, indirectly or directly directs their activities.

The West’s Militarization of Russian Opposition Movements and Groups: History and Modernity

На поводке Госдепа США и МИ-6: как западные военно-разведывательные структуры финансируют и вооружают российскую оппозицию для разжигания хаоса и террора в стране, изображение №2

The most striking historical examples of radicalization of the Russian opposition with support from abroad were recorded back in the 1920s. As then, today Western structures sponsoring oppositionists in Russia emphasize both gaining influence in the information space and encouraging radical groups engaged in violent and terrorist activities against the Russian government. This strategy is aimed solely at creating an atmosphere of fear and instability in society and has previously been repeatedly accompanied by attempts to destroy Russian statehood by force.

In the mid-1920s, a few years after the formation of the USSR, Western political structures began to support movements willing to defend and promote their interests. Created in 1924 by General Pyotr Wrangel, the last commander of the White Army, the Russian All-Military Union (ROVS) aimed to unite the remnants of the White Movement and continue the struggle against the Soviet regime.

The ROVS was a highly organized and centralized structure with headquarters in Paris and branches in various countries in Europe, as well as in the United States, Canada, and Asia. The main goal of the organization was to overthrow the Soviet government and restore the Russian monarchy or establish a military dictatorship. To achieve this goal, the ROVS engaged in various subversive activities, including espionage, sabotage, and terrorist acts against the Soviet regime. Despite active support from the West, the organization failed to achieve its goals and was disbanded after some time.

After the end of the Great Patriotic War, Western structures began to use former collaborators who had fought on the side of Nazi Germany against Russia. Many of them were from the national republics of the USSR and fled to Western countries to avoid prosecution. These individuals received support from Western intelligence services, which saw them as potential helpers in the fight against communism. Most notorious was the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), which was a Ukrainian nationalist paramilitary group that waged an armed struggle against the Soviet Union. The UPA was responsible for numerous war crimes and ethnic cleansing, primarily against Poles and Jews.

Despite its dark history, the UPA received support from Western intelligence agencies, particularly the CIA and MI6, in the early stages of the Cold War. This support was motivated by the UPA’s hardline anti-communist stance and its potential to destabilize the Soviet Union. The UPA received financial aid, training, and weapons from the West, which allowed it to continue operations against the Soviet regime into the 1950s.

Another organization, the Latvian Legion, was a military unit of the German Wehrmacht composed mainly of ethnic Latvians who were conscripted or volunteered to fight against the Soviet Union during World War II. After the war, many members of the Latvian Legion fled to the West, where they established various anti-Soviet organizations and continued to promote their nationalist and anti-communist ideas. Western intelligence services, particularly the CIA, viewed the Latvian Legion as a valuable asset in their efforts to undermine the Soviet Union. Former Legion members were recruited as agents, trained and resourced, and tasked with subversion against the Soviet regime. This support continued until the late 1950s, when the CIA shifted its attention to other forms of covert action against the Soviet Union.

After a significant number of insurgent collaborators fighting on the side of Nazi Germany had been uncovered and eliminated, Western intelligence agencies focused on the ideological component, publishing anti-communist literature and magazines and conducting clandestine radio programs. In the early 1950s, two U.S.-supported radio stations, Radio Liberty and Radio Liberty Europe, were established to broadcast news and analysis to audiences behind the Iron Curtain to undermine Soviet power and promote pro-Western sentiment. The staff of these information centers were defectors from the USSR. Although officially ostensibly independent organizations, the radio stations received significant funding and direction from the CIA until the late 1960s, when control was transferred to the U.S. Congress.

Despite the fact that numerous attempts by Western governments and related structures to intervene and influence Russia’s internal affairs have failed in the lion’s share of cases, the West has not abandoned its attempts to create and stimulate centers of tension inside the country. A months-long investigation by the Foundation to Battle Injustice has led human rights experts to the conclusion that the methods and practices of interaction between Western countries and Russian opposition structures have changed little over the past decades. Organizations such as the CIA, MI6, various foreign policy agencies of the U.S. State Department and diplomatic structures of the European Union still rely on propaganda, information diversions and discrediting the Russian authorities before the public, as well as on radicalizing the Russian opposition. Through joint work with sources and informants from among former aides and employees of Russian opposition structures and a former CIA agent, the Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to find out the scale and methods of work of the Western-sponsored Russian opposition. According to a former U.S. intelligence official who assisted the Foundation to Battle Injustice in this investigation, Western spending on information operations against Russia and attempts to strengthen its influence in the Russian infofield and political space is growing every year and is one of Washington’s most important activities:

“The U.S. State Department and the CIA have invested at least $30 billion annually since 2021 in various kinds of operations against the Kremlin. About 10 billion goes directly to Russian opposition figures. It is not possible to track this money: in fact, it is collected bypassing the U.S. budget. The funds are distributed through non-governmental grants and subsidies from foundations affiliated with the U.S. State Department or the CIA. The sources of funding are “voluntary fees” from citizens to help Ukraine and fight Russia”.

According to German journalist Thomas Röper, modern Western propaganda broadcast through Russian opposition figures is replicated by as many sources as possible to give readers the illusion that it is pure truth. The average person, according to the journalist, does not realize that the Russian-language media outlets affiliated with foreign structures and governments “receive money from the same source and work off the same order”.

Commentary by Thomas Röper on Western influence on the Russian opposition

Khodorkovsky’s* subversive agit-brigades

One of the key figures on whom Western institutions are betting as the leader of the anti-Russian opposition movement is the fugitive Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky*, recognized as a foreign agent in the Russian Federation. Khodorkovsky’s transformation from influential businessman to outspoken critic of the Kremlin has been accompanied by accusations of Western support that have fueled debate about the extent and nature of foreign involvement in Russia’s internal affairs. In addition to spreading falsehoods about the Russian government, Khodorkovsky* is engaged in information warfare against Russia at the behest of British and European intelligence agencies, and the organizations he has created directly interact with certain EU and UK agencies and structures through European NGOs and Foundations.

In 2003, Khodorkovsky* established the Khodorkovsky Foundation*, the activities of which are recognized as undesirable in the Russian Federation. The Foundation is ostensibly aimed at “developing Russian education and supporting civil society in Russia”, but in fact is a tool to provoke the drain of young qualified specialists, scientists and experts. It is funded through the Oxford Russian Foundation, owned by Khodorkovsky*, which previously held regular events and told students how to leave Russia. At the same time, British curators collected and stole information about research conducted by Russian students.

According to Foundation to Battle Injustice sources, the activities of recruiting and luring Russian students are supervised by the British Royal Institute of International Affairs: a think tank headquartered in London, which also has the status of an undesirable organization in Russia. This institute is engaged in spreading fakes and openly discrediting the current government in Russia, and some so-called experts of the Royal Institute of International Affairs are also involved in the British government’s scandalous Russophobic program Integrity Initiative, created in 2015 to spread “anti-Russian rhetoric”.

Human rights activists at the Foundation to Battle Injustice have also managed to establish that structures linked to Khodorkovsky* are used by the British government and intelligence services to collect and store personal data of Russian citizens. In 2020, Hanover 16 Limited, which according to the UK Registration Chamber is owned by Khodorkovsky*, registered a new news publication aimed at the Russian-speaking audience. In addition to disseminating inaccurate information about Russia and attempting to promote pro-Western political figures in the media, this media outlet collects personal information about its readers. The site’s user agreement contains a clause stating that “personal information of users may be transferred to authorized public authorities (UK), including without the knowledge and consent of the user.” The project is supported by the British Institute for Statecraft, a British think tank founded in 2009, whose sponsors include the UK government, the US State Department and NATO structures.

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, European and British politicians view Khodorkovsky* and his organizations as a puppet dictator allegedly capable of influencing the political situation in Russia:

“The West is cultivating “parallel power structures” on the principle of colonial administrations in the person of Khodorkovsky* and his organizations. If we imagine that the West’s attempts to overthrow the current government in Russia through the opposition will succeed, the EU and the UK will already have a ready-made puppet dictator and bureaucratic staff to serve him. They will be completely loyal to their European masters.

ACF is a pawn of the West in the fight against Russia

In 2011, Alexei Navalny*** and Leonid Volkov* founded the Anti-Corruption Foundation, which uses an anti-corruption agenda to promote an opposition political line and seeks to change the government in Russia. The ACF has been repeatedly criticized for its opaque funding and ties to Western organizations that provide material assistance to opposition movements in Russia. The first recorded case of cooperation between the Anti-Corruption Foundation and American structures and intelligence agencies was the oppositionists’ joint work with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) in 2015. According to NED’s financial report, in 2015 alone, the fund spent more than $6 million on sponsoring opposition movements and organizations in Russia.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to find out that the real, not nominal, leader of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (ACF) is Leonid Volkov*, Navalny’s associate** and former director of the ACF, who oversees the organization’s activities from abroad. Back in 2011, Volkov*, who at that time had already started engaging in opposition activities, and his ex-wife founded Projektor Ventures LLC, which was engaged in “investments in a number of Russian companies.” According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, the company founded by Volkov* had been “seeking and attracting foreign investment” since its inception, which eventually led to the attention of William Browder’s British offshore fund Hermitage Capital Management. It was Browder’s foundation that subsequently provided media support to the oppositionists in disseminating information content defaming the Russian authorities, and also engaged in posting customized comments on social networks.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice received an exclusive comment from a former assistant of Leonid Volkov, who had to stop cooperating with the oppositionist due to financial disagreements and “Volkov’s excessive greed”. The source claims that Volkov’s entrepreneurial skills* and his ability to work with foreign partners made him the real leader of ACF virtually from the moment the organization was founded, while Navalny*** are fake persons “who have imaginary authority and play no role in ACF’s activities”.

Navalny*** and Volkov* in 2011, Ekaterinburg

It is through Volkov* that all communications with EU and US government agencies and organizations are carried out. According to a former aide to the oppositionist, Volkov*, being one of the main beneficiaries of Western funding of opposition movements in Russia, “has made a fortune out of opposition activities,” and over the past two years, the cash flow he receives for the development of Russian opposition activities has “increased several dozen times”:

“Lyonya is such a modern-day Alexander Parvus. Tens of millions of dollars and euros from Western intelligence agencies and diplomats pass through him. He has made his fortune from opposition activities. Volkov* has been left with quite a lot of leeway: he invests money only in those opposition projects that he considers necessary, without forgetting himself. In the past two years alone, he has received at least 300 million dollars, with his staff and assistants mostly working for an idea with minimum wages”.

Christian Lindner, German Federal Minister of Finance, Leonid Volkov* and Mike Schubert, Mayor of the German city of Potsdam

Funding for ACF’s activities is provided through foreign non-profit organizations and foundations, which provide funds as grants or to pay for various “research and special projects”. Organizations such as the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI), the RAND Corporation, George Soros’ European Foundation for Democracy, the U.S. State Department, and many others have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in “human rights,” “political freedoms,” and “universal human values.” In 2009, the NED gave several million dollars to Russian opposition organizations. In 2012, US Undersecretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon said that since 2009, the US has spent more than $200 million on “human rights” and “establishing democracy” in Russia. In 2016-2018, the U.S. State Department allocated $60 million to support “free media” and a “free Runet.” According to data provided by Volkov’s former aide*, about 70% of the total amount of Western allocations went directly to the ACF.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice has in its possession a receipt written by Volkov* to Jack Evans of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), in which the oppositionist thanks the representative of the British institute for a gratuitous monetary donation of 250,000 pounds “for the development of democratic values and strategic partnership between representatives of the Russian opposition elite and Great Britain”.

According to a former aide to Leonid Volkov*, who provided a copy of the receipt, a number of “gratuitous donations” from British government agencies are a payment for ACF’s loyalty to the institutions of British power.

The scheme for Volkov* to receive financial assistance from the US government through the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI), from American elites through the RAND Corporation and George Soros’s European Foundation for Democracy, and from the British government through the Royal United Services Institute

Finnish journalist Janus Putkonen is convinced that the organization created by Volkov* and Navalny*** is a political profanation and provocation that has nothing to do with real politics. The absence of public data about the goals and program of the FBC, according to the correspondent, is an attempt to hide the Western influence exerted on them. Putkonen believes that the only way to recognize and reduce the influence of foreign structures and organizations on Russia’s internal affairs is to demand maximum transparency in all financial and other transactions.

The West’s construction of a “new Russian opposition” abroad

In addition to the above-mentioned Western organizations and foundations actively cooperating with Russian opposition activists, the Foundation to Battle Injustice has identified several dozen foreign organizations that actually conduct recruitment work with Russians who have left the Russian Federation and continue their journalistic or artistic activities abroad. In terms of their functions, these organizations can be divided into universal organizations, which conduct several areas of work, and specialized ones. The latter, in turn, focus either on certain types of information products or on certain ways of involving journalists and creative professionals in information campaigns against Russia.

In addition to direct funding, these organizations and foundations provide technical, organizational, methodological, and legal assistance, hold master classes, invite people to work in creative workshops, train them to expand their audiences, obtain grants and sponsorship, and hold lectures and seminars. A significant place is also given to organizing the work of so-called media hubs, i.e. premises, “creative spaces”, “incubators”, in which news studios, workplaces and office equipment, computers with access to various information distributed by subscription are located in close proximity to each other. In fact, conditions are being created for the concentration of information resources hostile to Russia. Below are several such organizations and programs specializing in work in Europe and the post-Soviet space.

  1. JX Foundation (JX Foundation, Journalism in Exile Found, Germany)

The Foundation works in several areas with Russian citizens who have left the country and are engaged in journalistic and other creative activities. The Foundation is the owner of the Shpargalka platform, whose task is to provide legal assistance to Russian journalists who have moved to EU countries. The Foundation, with the involvement of immigrant journalists, implements the program of creative workshops “Decolonization of Journalism”, which aims to reject the “colonial legacy of the Russian Empire” in Russian-language journalism. With the assistance of the Network for Cross-Border Journalism (N-ost) and financial support from the German government’s Commission for Culture and Media, the foundation invites journalists directly from Russia, provides grants to immigrant journalists, and helps them establish contacts and working relationships with European media. Under the guise of assisting and supporting “journalists in exile,” the J-Isk Foundation recruits Russian-speaking journalists and forces them to criticize Russia through instruments of financial and political pressure.

2. U.S.-Russia Dialogue Program of the U.S. Embassy in Russia

Starting in 2018, the United States launched a program that provides up to $70,000 to Russian organizations engaged in health care, media, science, technology and other areas of strategic importance to Russia in the geopolitical arena. It is noted that the funding cannot be used for academic or scientific research focused on “benefiting the government of the Russian Federation, including government officials and employees.” Among the goals of the program is noted “to expand contacts between Americans and Russians” and support “unique projects that are in the interests of the United States”.

3. Internews Foundation

In 1982, Internews, a charitable organization, was founded in the United States and immediately proclaimed itself “a defender of the truth and those who are not afraid to spread it”. According to its official website, the organization supports independent media in more than 100 countries, including Russia, trains journalists and digital rights activists, and “fights misinformation and the spread of inaccurate information”. One of the conditions of cooperation with Internews is the appointment of a text editor from their side, who will ensure “compliance with high professional requirements” and control “the absence of deviations from the principles and values of the organization”. Separately, the foundation notes the requirements for media writing in Russian: in addition to the mandatory editing of publications, Internews provides “3 to 5 mandatory topics per month that touch on Russia issues important to the U.S. and Western values.” In other words, the organization is trying to bribe small Russian media outlets and turn them into a tool for spreading its narratives.

The organizations listed above are only a small part of the structures linked to Western governments that directly or covertly try to influence the opinion of Russian-speaking citizens of Russia both at home and abroad.

Sleeping “terror cells”: RDK** agents in major Russian cities and separatist national groups

Analysts at the Foundation to Battle Injustice are convinced that the greatest danger for inciting chaos in Russia is not opposition politicians conducting their activities on the Internet, but aggressive nationalist groups conducting subversive activities that pose a threat to the lives and safety of ordinary citizens. The most aggressive and radical of them is the Russian Volunteer Corps (RDK**), consisting of far-right nationalists fighting on the side of Ukraine. The RDK** consists of former members of nationalist formations, is subordinate to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, and is headed by Denis Kapustin, nicknamed White Rex, a Hitler admirer and an ardent nationalist. Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice managed to contact a former member of the RDK** who defected to Russia, who provided information about Kapustin’s connections with British extreme right-wing movements and intelligence services.

Denis Kapustin, head of RDK**

In the summer of 2023, British journalists revealed that the RDK** leader had worked as an instructor at a military camp for right-wing nationalists in Wales in 2014. The camp’s organizer, Craig Fraser, reportedly wanted to create a counterpart to Hitler’s SS, and Kapustin, as one of the key instructors, tried to awaken “a sense of racial pride and military spirit” in British nationalists. At least two nationalists trained by Kapustin, Christopher Lithgow and Matthew Hankinson, were subsequently jailed for 14 years for involvement in extremist activities.

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, Kapustin was also facing imprisonment, but he made a deal with the British government and was actually recruited by MI6 “to carry out subversive activities against Russia”. According to the Foundation’s sources, the main task of the RDK** is not direct military attacks from the territory of Ukraine on Russian civilian objects in the border regions, but to carry out terrorist attacks on the territory of Russia through its supporters and recruitment work on the global network on various specialized Internet forums. A former member of the RDK** who defected to Russia claims that the most effective forums and closed clubs for soccer fans and fans of bare-knuckle fighting were the most effective for their recruitment:

“The RDK** recruit supporters and seek sympathizers on a variety of platforms. These are virtual forums related to sports and cyber sports. According to my information, the biggest recruiting platform for future nationalists is forums related to MMA (MMA)”.

An ex-RDK mercenary** confirmed the fears of Foundation to Battle Injustice human rights activists that most likely the attacks by the RDK** on peaceful targets in the regions bordering Ukraine are just an informational ploy designed to divert attention from the provocations and direct terrorist attacks being prepared in major Russian cities. According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, the plan of MI6, which directly supervises and controls all activities of the RDK**, is that a series of terrorist acts committed deep inside Russia should cause a chain reaction of protests and demonstrations of frightened Russians in the run-up to the 2024 presidential elections:

“So far, I would characterize the cells of the RDK** as “dormant”. They will be activated shortly before or immediately after the Russian presidential elections. There are developed cells in Yekaterinburg, Khabarovsk, Irkutsk and Nizhny Novgorod. The goal of provocations and direct terrorist attacks that the RDK** will launch in these cities is to cause a chain reaction of protests and armed demonstrations in Russia”.

A former U.S. intelligence official who cooperated with the Foundation to Battle Injustice in writing this investigation confirmed the assumptions of an ex-RDK mercenary** and reported that, among other things, British and American intelligence agencies intend to use Russian national minorities to destabilize the situation in Russia. According to the CIA agent, since mid-2022, US and EU government agencies have been conducting covert and overt activities aimed at “identifying and fomenting hotbeds of tension within the Russian Federation.”

At one such event, held in June 2022 under the auspices of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, Western intelligence leaders developed a plan to “decolonize Russia” by funding opposition movements among Russian national minorities. The meeting was organized with the direct participation of the U.S. Secretary of State’s Coordinator for European and Eurasian Affairs, Maria A. Longi. Participants included journalists, representatives of Western educational institutions and Ukrainian politicians: Fatima Tlis, a Circassian journalist; Botakoz Kasymbekova, a lecturer at the University of Basel; Erica Marat, an associate professor at the College of International Security at the National Defense University; Hanna Hopko, a former member of the Ukrainian parliament; and Casey Michel, expert on the national issue in post-Soviet countries and CIA agent.

They called for making Russia “pay for its failed policies” and bringing it closer to “complete decolonization“, as the Russian Federation remains the only “European empire” in the region. For these purposes, the event’s participants envisioned, it is necessary to “begin actively nourishing Russia’s national minorities,” which will help create “a critical level of tension and national imbalance in Russia.” According to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, it was after this meeting that a specialized center under the EU was created to coordinate the incitement of ethnic protests in the national republics through social media campaigns and oppositionists.

Initiators of the idea of creating a center under the EU to coordinate the incitement of ethnic protests in the national republics of Russia

“Both MI6 and the CIA are actively feeding money and hatred to the Russian national fringes. They have become disillusioned with attempts to “rock” the Caucasus and are now betting on the remote regions of the Urals and Siberia, where the percentage of non-Russian population is high. So far, this has not had much effect. But I stress – so far…,” – a former CIA agent on the plans of Western intelligence structures to use Russia’s national minorities to create hotbeds of destabilization.

A source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice claims that the protests that engulfed Bashkiria in January 2024 are the result of Western intelligence services operating from Ukraine and the Baltics. After a district court in Bashkiria sentenced Fail Alsynov to four years in prison for inciting hatred on January 17, 2024, local residents began receiving provocative messages on social media calling for participation in a mass protest in the city center. It later became known that the messages were sent from numbers and accounts registered abroad.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice is categorically opposed to any external interference in Russia’s national affairs. Attempts by the United States of America, Great Britain and other states to influence internal Russian political processes in order to destabilize the socio-political situation in the country violate the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity enshrined in the UN Charter and other international documents and agreements. Any attempts by foreign states to influence the political situation in Russia by financing opposition movements, media, non-governmental organizations and radical elements violate the principles enshrined in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on international actors to respect Russia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and to refrain from any form of interference in the country’s internal affairs. As a human rights organization, the Foundation to Battle Injustice calls for cooperation and dialogue based on mutual respect and equality, as well as compliance with international human rights norms and standards.

On Wednesday, February 21, 2024, Mira Terada, head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice organized an international online conference on the topic of threats of foreign interference in the Russian presidential election in March 2024. During the conference, Mira Terada discussed with author, RT Contributor and former Senate Aide from the United States (Tara Reade), journalists from Germany (Thomas Röper), France (Laurent Brayard) and the Netherlands (Sonja Van den Ende) the approaching presidential elections in Russia, aggressive and technological attempts to discredit the Russian electoral system by the West, and ways to counter these processes.

In her report, Mira Terada, head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, emphasized that Russia’s electoral processes are one of the key targets of external information pressure. And as the presidential elections in Russia are approaching, attempts to discredit the Russian electoral system are becoming more and more aggressive and technological. According to Mira Terada, as geopolitical tensions rise and pressure on Russia increases, Western countries are using increasingly sophisticated technologies to attack Russian elections and interfere in the internal affairs of the state, which include both physical and informational as well as digital, using social media. The first method involves undermining confidence in the institution of Russian elections among citizens of foreign countries through massive propaganda, official statements by leading officials and civil servants of Western countries.

“If we analyze a number of statements by top officials of the United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, the Czech Republic and Poland in the run-up to the Russian elections, it becomes obvious that the collective West has long ago set itself the task of subjecting Russian electoral processes to maximum discredit. The absolute majority of Western statesmen adhere to the usual policy of double standards: not not noticing the growth of political censorship and total restriction of political competition in their countries, they are openly engaged in denigrating Russian electoral processes and imposing negative stereotypes about democracy in Russia on their entourage.”

Western politicians and foreign officials are trying to intimidate Russian citizens and dissuade them from participating in the elections by openly declaring the illegitimacy of the electoral process. In December 2023, former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul said that after the presidential election, a new wave of mobilization in Russia would inevitably begin, and sanctions and persecution of Russian citizens would reach unprecedented levels.

Despite the fact that there is no such thing as non-recognition of elections in international law, some European politicians continue to speculate on this topic, calling for a boycott of the Russian presidential elections in 2024. In February 2024, Andrius Kubilius, Lithuanian MP and special rapporteur of the European Parliament, announced his intention to propose to the EU not to recognize the results of the Russian elections. Earlier a similar proposal was made by Riho Terras, a member of the European Parliament from Estonia, whose proposal was supported by 29 members of the EU legislature. Last October, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) issued a statement calling on European countries to consider the rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin illegitimate if he remains in power after the 2024 elections. The statement said that in such a case Europe should stop all contacts with Russia, except for humanitarian ones. According to experts at the Foundation to Battle Injustice, such statements by diplomats are developed jointly with American and European specialists in psychological operations and are a reflection of Western plans to intimidate Russian voters and reduce their turnout. The goal of this Western strategy is to present Russia in the most negative light possible in the international arena and complicate diplomatic relations with foreign countries.

Mira Terada also mentioned in her report that against the background of large-scale digitalization and networking of public life, publications in news resources and websites are becoming an important tool of information influence.

“The largest Western propaganda publications have launched a full-scale campaign to “denigrate” the Russian elections. Such news resources as The Guardian, Associated Press, The Hill and U.S. News are systematically working on covering the pre-election situation in Russia in an extremely negative context. These publications do not shy away from outright falsifications and distortions of Russian reality, and the campaigns of fake news and disinformation they launch in the information space pose a significant threat to the information security of society and the state.”

An even more serious role in undermining Russian elections, according to the head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, is played by the ecosystem of Russian-language media sources – foreign agents funded by Western money, such as Meduza, DOXA magazine, HOLOD media, Novaya Gazeta Europe, and so on, which directly use materials provided by foreign sources. Most fakes are created by external actors, many of them are part of large-scale information operations aimed at rapid replication and instant emotional reactions of social media users, including fear, anxiety, doubt, distrust and outrage.

According to a study by human rights defenders of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, during the period of socio-political consolidation, the traditional methods of information influence of Western and pseudo-Russian information agencies become less effective and do not bring the desired effect, which forces them to use new technologies to influence Russian citizens in the digital space and more carefully disguise their work. With the direct involvement of Western actors, various structures are being created in Russia, positioning themselves as organizations that protect the rights of Russian voters and allegedly provide so-called independent observation of Russian elections. Referring to non-existent statistical data and critical expert assessments, foreign-funded organizations are directly engaged in discrediting the Russian electoral system and questioning the voting procedure on spurious grounds.

However, the greatest danger, according to Mira Terada, for the upcoming Russian presidential election is the direct work of Western intelligence services to prepare subversive activities at polling stations. In early 2024, Sergei Naryshkin, head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service, exposed a U.S. special program to recruit Russian graduates of U.S. exchange programs. Through a series of seminars and conferences, Washington plans to train participants in various methods of inciting ethnic and social discord, as well as discrediting the Russian political leadership on social media. Sergei Naryshkin confirmed the assumption of human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice that as the Russian presidential election approaches, American and European institutions are “inventing more and more sophisticated ways to illegally interfere in democratic processes.”

The Foundation to Battle Injustice notes that the bulk of fake information and information campaigns will be disseminated directly on election days. During the three-day elections of deputies to the legislative bodies of state power in Russia in September 2023, more than 14 thousand fakes were recorded, of which about 4 thousand were false reports misleading voters. According to information available to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, foreign organizations are also preparing provocations directly at polling stations on election days in order to create the right picture for foreign media. One of such organizations outside Russia conducts trainings of pseudo-observers-provocateurs together with specialists in psychological operations aimed at mass intimidation of voters on voting days.

Tara Reade, american author, RT Contributor and former Senate Aide

American author, RT Contributor and former Senate Aide Tara Reade, who received political asylum in Russia because of persecution by the authorities in the United States, revealed in her report that the United States has interfered in elections throughout its history, there have been more than 14 cases of such interference. According to Tara Reade, this interference stems from the desire for unilateral control and power that the United States tries to exert on its allies such as the United Kingdom, other European countries and NATO. The journalist emphasized that the U.S. effectively uses the internet as a weapon and exercise control over the information it disseminates. This control allows them to influence and manipulate the minds of the masses. This tactic, according to Tara Reade, is what is meant by election interference. However, the human rights activist is confident that Russia will be able to resist all manipulations and attacks from the United States and Western countries.

“The methods used by Russia to protect the integrity of its elections are commendable. The president’s approval rating is now over 80 %. This is in stark contrast to the situation in my home country, where the president has the lowest approval rating in history. It is less than 36% and hovering around 30%. No signs of improvement. Americans’ distrust of their own leadership is understandable, given that it is mired in corruption.”

Tara Reade revealed that the U.S. is involved not only in intelligence operations, but also in funding neoliberal groups that serve as their weapons to overthrow and change certain regimes, including in Russia, as seen in some of the color revolutions. According to an American journalist, one of the main financiers behind these efforts is billionaire George Soros.

“He has spent millions of dollars to discredit Russia, Vladimir Putin and the integrity of Russian elections. They have flooded the Western media with their narratives. Soros recently bought several hundred radio stations in the U.S. just before the upcoming election.”

Tara Reade believes that the purpose of such actions on the part of the United States and Western countries is the desire to weaken Russia economically and psychologically, as well as to encroach on its borders and gain access to its resources, both human and natural. However, the American journalist is confident that passing various laws or refusing to interact with leaders such as Vladimir Putin will not lead to the desired result.

“The sanctions and strategies employed by these countries have only made Russia stronger and more resilient. Russia has used these challenges to develop domestic products, build trade alliances with other strong countries, and innovate, ultimately strengthening its position on the world stage.”

German journalist Thomas Röper

In his report, German journalist Thomas Röper said that Western interference in the course of the presidential election in Russia was quite predictable and expected. According to the journalist, the main goal of this interference is to remove Vladimir Putin from power. “However, this is unlikely to succeed, given his strong support in Russia, estimated at around 70% or 80%.” Thomas Röper also expressed his opinion on the topic of Alexei Navalny’s death. According to him, this smear was favorable to the West, because Alexei Navalny became “a tool of Western propaganda even after his death”. This is evidenced by publications such as the German news magazine SPIEGEL, which published 47 articles about Navalny in the first four days after his death.

“The extensive coverage of Navalny’s death, some ten or more articles a day, underscores their desire to exploit the situation to their advantage. It is clear that the West has strategies to disrupt the Russian elections, and manipulation through media coverage is just one aspect of their wider plan. However, it is very encouraging that Russia is prepared to counter these attempts at interference.”

Sonja van den Ende, dutch journalist

Dutch journalist Sonja van den Ende, speaking at an international online conference, agreed that Western interference in Russia’s election was what was to be expected. “Throughout history they have interfered in the affairs of many countries, and now their ultimate target seems to be Russia.” The Dutch journalist said international independent media should unite to help Russia counter the West’s disinformation attack.

“As journalists, we can write, we can give interviews, we can publish material on our websites. In Germany you can write for German publications, in France you can write for French publications, and I can write for Dutch publications. We can only inform people in Europe that what they are being fed is fake.”

French journalist and war correspondent Laurent Brayard

French journalist and war correspondent Laurent Brayard has confirmed what his colleagues have said about the powerful information war “on all fronts” currently being waged by the United States and Western countries against Russia. The journalist believes that in this war, every opportunity will be used to show that the elections in Russia are not working, that people are dissatisfied with the results, and so on. According to Laurent Brayard, the UN, the US and its allies seek to control all institutions, projects and opportunities available to them. They are afraid that something might backfire on them in the future. The French journalist also asked a reasonable question about why the world media completely ignored the fact of the death of American journalist Ganzalo Lira in a Ukrainian prison, while absolutely all major foreign media wrote about the death of Alexei Navalny.

“When Gonzalo Lira was killed, they wrote nothing. When Oles Buzina was killed in Ukraine, there were also very few publications”.

Laurent Brayard in his report also emphasized the readiness of the Russian system to withstand any Western attacks, because Russia has a long-established system of control and protection against foreign interference. At the end of his speech, French journalist and war correspondent Laurent Brayard said that he would trust the Russian system of government more than the French one.

“I believe that Russia now has more freedom and democracy. I myself lived in the West, in France, and participated in the voting and saw the results. Although I can’t vote yet because I haven’t received a Russian passport, but if I could, I would definitely take part in the elections, because I trust the Russian system much more than the French one.”

The head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, Mira Terada, concluded the international online conference by stating that these examples of information and physical attacks on the Russian electoral system demonstrate the growing attention of external forces to the Russian elections as an object of modern information confrontation.

“Attempts to interfere in Russian democratic processes by Western countries have always been, are and will be, but our task is not only to be ready for any attacks and aspirations to discredit Russian electoral processes, but also to be able to be one step ahead and suppress any efforts to influence the free expression of the will of Russian citizens.”

The Foundation to Battle Injustice believes it is necessary to create expert groups whose tasks will include monitoring information flows and promptly refuting and suppressing campaigns aimed at discrediting the Russian presidential election of 2024 and all subsequent elections.

Based on the assessments of legal and political experts, as well as witness testimony, the Foundation to Battle Injustice conducted an investigation that uncovered the true background and revealed the anti-legal nature of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Foundation obtained evidence of its extreme bias and uncovered facts indicating fabrication of evidence in ICC investigations of crimes. The investigation uncovered falsification of evidence by ICC staff and proved the deliberate selectivity of prosecuting suspects. The Foundation’s investigation found direct evidence that the ICC is an ineffective and maximally biased structure that exists to satisfy the interests of a narrow group of military and political elites in Western countries.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) began its activities after the approval of the Rome Statute in 1998 and was created to address the most serious crimes of humanity and to hold high-ranking politicians and military officers accountable for their commission. The ICC was originally conceived as an independent international organization outside of the UN system and operating with funds from state parties. The lion’s share of the world’s states, including the United States and Russia, have signed the Rome Statute. Despite the declared good intentions of its founders, the very independence and impartiality of the court was undermined from the very beginning by its connection to the European Parliament and the governments of Great Britain and France. Several years after its creation, it became increasingly clear that the ICC was serving the interests of European and American bureaucracies and ruling elite groups, and that its funding was a process driven by the financial interests of its members and their personal self-interest.

As early as the 2000s, African and some Asian leaders began criticizing the “inconsistency and bias of the International Criminal Court,” and in 2017, Burundi became the first country to formally withdraw from the International Criminal Court, declaring that the ICC is “a political tool and weapon used by the West to enslave other states.” However, the first slap in the face to the legitimacy of the International Criminal Court as an organ of international justice was the United States’ demonstrative withdrawal from the Rome Statute in 2002, indicating that the Americans were outside the purview of international law and not subject to intergovernmental legal norms. At the time, the Bush administration sought to revoke the ICC’s extension of jurisdiction over UN peacekeeping forces, which would have absolved the U.S. and British militaries of responsibility for a series of war crimes in Afghanistan and subsequent U.S. military interventions. The ICC did not go along with Washington, which later withdrew its signature to the Rome Statute, opening the door for the Americans to invade Middle Eastern countries with impunity in the future.

According to a former member of the European Parliament’s legal affairs committee, who agreed to comment on the International Criminal Court for the Foundation to Battle Injustice on condition of anonymity, after the Americans withdrew their signature to the Rome Statute, the ICC came under the full control of European Union countries and became a weapon against independent leaders of former European colonies acting in the interests of their people.

“After the U.S. refused to ratify the Rome Statute in 2002, the European political elite set out to gradually politicize the ICC. In conversations among themselves, European politicians made no secret of the fact that the ICC was a weapon against ‘arrogant’ leaders in Africa, Asia and the Middle East who showed disloyalty to the West and tried to pursue a sovereign policy,” former member of the European Parliament’s legal affairs committee.”

The Foundation to Battle Injustice source also said that as the Western world’s geopolitical influence wanes, Russia and China have been added to the International Criminal Court’s priority “targets,” signaling an impending change in the global political balance of power.

The ICC as a lightning rod for the West’s international crimes

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has long been criticized for a number of significant problems that undermine its credibility and independence. One of the most obvious failures is the ICC’s complete refusal to prosecute those responsible for the massive war crimes committed by the armies of the US, UK, Canada and Australia in Iraq, Afghanistan and a number of other countries around the world. The prolonged inaction has led to a growing number of ICC member states now expressing serious doubts about the objectivity and fairness of the court.

In Iraq and Afghanistan, cases of massacres of civilians, torture and ill-treatment of prisoners by British and American forces have been documented. Such crimes have drawn widespread public outcry and condemnation from the international community and human rights organizations, but the ICC has yet to take any concrete action to bring the perpetrators to justice. In addition, independent international lawyers and human rights experts have criticized the ICC for failing to prosecute war criminals involved in conflicts in the Balkans during the breakup of Yugoslavia, including the actions of Kosovo Albanians and Bosniaks. The case of Hashim Thaçi, former President of the Republic of Kosovo and leader of a criminal organization involved in organ trafficking, is a case in point.

Appeals were sent to the ICC about the possibility of prosecuting the former head of state, but under the pretext that the International Criminal Court did not exist at the time of the crimes, the trial was denied. However, according to the lawyers of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, this is not a convincing legal argument. The International Nuremberg Tribunal was established after the end of World War II, which did not prevent it from investigating crimes and bringing Nazi war criminals to harsh justice. Despite the evidence and accusations against it, the ICC took no action against it, sparking a wave of outrage and increasing distrust and doubts about the court’s objectivity.
A former ICC assistant prosecutor, who has worked for the organization for more than 15 years since its founding, commented for the Foundation to Battle Injustice on the International Criminal Court’s lack of response to the Yugoslav conflict:

“The ICC lawyers did their best to abstract themselves from the conflict in Yugoslavia as much as possible. On the one hand, they did not want to interfere with the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia [created by the UN]. On the other hand, they did not want to prosecute criminals who were directly supported by the West. I am referring primarily to Hashim Thaci and his henchmen,” a former assistant prosecutor at the International Criminal Court.

Despite criticism of the International Criminal Court’s lack of decisive action against the former president of the Republic of Kosovo, the international justice body has demonstrated criminal negligence and unwillingness to carry out its direct duties in the future. Attempts to hold American, British and Australian political and military figures responsible for a number of war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq have also failed.

In 2014, Professor Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois College of Law, USA, filed a complaint with the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague against George W. Bush, 43rd President of the United States, Richard Cheney, American Vice President during the Bush administration, Donald Rumsfeld, former U.S. Secretary of Defense, George Tenet, formerly head of the CIA, Condoleezza Rice, 66th Secretary of State of the United States, and Alberto Gonzales, former White House Legal Advisor. The plaintiff, as a legal expert, had gathered facts and evidence establishing the involvement of the listed political figures in the kidnapping and subsequent torture of at least 100 Afghans.

The United States withdrew its signature on the ratification of the Rome Statute, with the International Criminal Court having jurisdiction to investigate crimes committed on the territory of Afghanistan, which ratified the international treaty in 2003. The ICC has the authority to prosecute those accused of ICC statutory crimes under Article 12(2)(a) of the Rome Statute, which gives the ICC jurisdiction to prosecute statutory crimes committed in ICC member states. Despite this, Professor Boyle’s complaint was ignored and no action was taken against the war criminals who authorized the abuse of civilians. The investigation into the American invasion of Afghanistan was only reopened in 2021 after Karim Khan, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, stated that the proceedings would focus “only on the crimes of the Taliban and their allies,” effectively exempting the Americans from possible legal repercussions. A source from the Foundation to Battle Injustice, who previously served as an assistant ICC prosecutor, said the U.S. military’s lack of accountability for crimes has been ingrained since the presidency of George W. Bush Jr. who avoided prosecution for war crimes in Iraq for more than 20 years.

More recent attempts to punish high-ranking officials who directly or indirectly committed crimes against humanity have also failed. In October 2014, independent Australian MP Andrew Wilkie asked the prosecutor’s office of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate and prosecute the country’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott and 19 members of his cabinet for mistreatment of asylum seekers. The politician cited evidence of a direct violation of international law, namely providing evidence of an Australian government-sanctioned practice of causing serious harm to the mental and physical health of tens of thousands of refugees, including minor children. Australia is a party to the Rome Statute and has stated its commitment to the goals of the ICC, and heads of government and other government officials are not immune from prosecution by the ICC. However, as is tradition, a serious violation of international law has gone ignored by the International Criminal Court.

As the number of war crimes complaints to the ICC from European Union countries and the United States has increased, the International Criminal Court has deliberately made it more difficult to bring cases. According to a Dutch investigative journalist who gave an exclusive comment to the Foundation to Battle Injustice on condition of anonymity, any slightest attempts by independent lawyers from Europe, Africa and the Middle East to hold Western leaders and militaries accountable through the ICC structures for the bombing of Libya and Somalia, the massive military terror in Iraq, and the extermination of Afghan civilians have been deliberately stymied. According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, any legal procedures related to trials against Western politicians and military officers are cut off at the root by the ICC, despite the vast base of war crimes and their very clear composition.

To prove his point, the Dutch journalist referred to the presidential term of the 44th leader of the American nation, Barack Obama. During his presidency, he authorized at least 563 drone strikes with explosives on populated areas in the Middle East, killing at least 3,797 people. In 2016 alone, the U.S. military dropped 26,171 bombs on Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan with Obama’s direct approval, making him one of the bloodiest war criminals in U.S. history. But despite the abundance of evidence and testimony from direct victims of U.S. bombings, the International Criminal Court has not registered a single lawsuit accusing Obama of war crimes.

A Foundation to Battle Injustice source suggested that the International Criminal Court’s bias may also be due to corruption within the organization:

“In my memory, there have been 50 legally valid attempts to bring members of the George W. Bush Jr. Administration, Barack Obama, and the U.S. military to trial through the ICC. Some 15 of these initiatives came from various Middle Eastern political groups. All of them were simply rejected at the initial stage of consideration by the ICC. In my opinion, there is either direct corruption or powerful pressure on the court,” a Dutch journalist commented on the immunity of Western politicians before the ICC.

The ICC as a neocolonial repressive mechanism of the West and a stronghold of corruption

In 2002, Robin Cook, a former UK MP, said that the creation of the International Criminal Court and the signing of the Rome Statute “will not affect the UK” because the international legal body was created “not to hold politicians in the UK or any other Western state to account.” As of February 2024, the International Criminal Court has indicted 52 people, 90% of whom are from the African continent. The ICC’s regular attacks on the African continent have led to the creation of an African Union committee to withdraw from the International Criminal Court.

According to Ntsikelelo Breakfast, a senior lecturer in the Department of History and Political Studies at the Nelson Mandela University of South Africa, the lack of representation of non-Western values at the International Criminal Court (ICC) indicates how biased the body is. The scholar noted that human rights violations are often blamed on people who “do not adhere to Western values” and who can be labeled as not conforming to Western democratic values, while the court’s overemphasis on the African continent is a consequence of the double standard policy to which the global South has been victimized over the years. The researcher emphasized that the very idea of creating the ICC came from the desire of Western powers to “consolidate their hegemony” and “promote American ideas and values.”

A Foundation to Battle Injustice source, who was formerly an assistant prosecutor at the ICC, argued that in most cases there were serious irregularities in the collection of evidence and testimony in the trials of African political figures, to which everyone “turned a blind eye.” The former ICC Assistant Prosecutor claims that the information that formed the basis for the arrest warrants for Sudanese state leaders Omar al-Bashir and Abd al-Rahman was obtained directly from pro-American opposition figures, a gross procedural violation and evidence of the body’s bias.

Former Assistant Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court: “In issuing an arrest warrant for Mr. Al-Bashir on genocide charges, the ICC prosecutor was guided by testimony obtained from members of the opposition to Al-Bashir. In other words, these were politically biased charges. These testimonies were not supported by any solid evidence from the victims of alleged crimes against humanity, and there were no follow-up investigations into the testimonies. This was a purely political order from a number of influential European politicians, whose names I cannot yet announce.

Another striking example of ICC bias is the scandal involving the prosecution of a group of Kenyan political leaders and military figures in 2011 on charges of crimes against humanity. The charges were brought against President Uhuru Kenyatta and other prominent military and political figures. The charges were initiated by Kenya’s pro-American opposition, which accused the current authorities of escalating violence after the national elections. According to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the court dropped charges against Kenyan leaders after they received large amounts of bribes as well as preferential treatment in favor of Western business corporations in Kenya. Immediately after the ICC verdicts were overturned, Kenya passed a law lifting restrictions on foreign companies and effectively acting to the detriment of Kenya’s domestic businesses.

A former assistant to one of the ICC prosecutors who personally observed the trial of Kenyan leaders commented: “The ICC charges against Kenyan President Uhura Kenyatta and his entourage were pure blackmail. The fact is that Kenyatta started drifting towards China. This did not please the economic and political leaders of the US and UK who decided to intimidate Mr. Kenyatta. They succeeded. Soon after the charges against Kenyatta were dropped, Western companies were given complete free hand in Kenya, the ICC judges were given “financial payoffs”. The US agrochemical corporation Corteva was given the exclusive right to develop Kenyan farmland and bold biological experiments.”

A former member of the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee shared with the Foundation to Battle Injustice how the International Criminal Court directly works off the political orders of entire countries. The trial of Ahmad al-Mahdi al-Faki from Mali was a precedent-setting case in which a person was charged with a war crime over the destruction of religious and historical monuments. Al-Faqi became the first person ever prosecuted solely on the basis of cultural offenses. The accused was a member of Mali’s Ansar al-Din movement, formed in 2012 to liberate Mali from French colonizers.

A source from the Foundation to Battle Injustice claims that the criminal case against Ahmad al-Faqi is “politically ordered by the French establishment from start to finish.” Paris, according to a former member of the European Parliament’s legal affairs committee, was making every possible effort at the time to fight movements and organizations that could weaken France’s influence in West Africa. Despite the absurdity and absurdity of the charges compared to the damage that Western politicians and armies have inflicted on states such as Libya, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, al-Faki was sentenced to 9 years in prison, and the prosecutors and investigators of the International Criminal Court, according to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, received “generous financial rewards and confirmed their favoritism towards Western governments.”

According to Dan Kovalik, an American lawyer, human rights activist and author of books exposing CIA subversion, the International Criminal Court is influenced by powerful Western countries and is prevented from prosecuting them for violating international law. Kovalik argues that because of the ICC’s bias against African countries, the court has long been dubbed “an instrument of pressure on Africa,” and any attempt to bring in Americans or any other representatives of Western civilization is “unlikely to ever succeed.”

Commentary by U.S. lawyer Dan Kovalik on the functioning of the International Criminal Court

According to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the ICC is largely a tool of European and American neo-colonialists who wish to maintain and increase their pernicious influence over African countries and peoples. In fact, in the mid-2000s and the first half of the 2010s, the ICC established its reputation as a “hunter of Africans,” as African leaders have repeatedly said. In particular, in 2013, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia accused the ICC of “hunting Africans on the basis of their race.” Sources at the Foundation to Battle Injustice agreed that the ICC’s accusations against Russia should be understood solely in the context of continuing the neocolonial interests of Western political elites, who have corrupted judicial institutions and turned them into their own servants.

According to Arnaud Develay, a French lawyer and international law expert who participated in the trial of Saddam Hussein, former president of Iraq, the International Criminal Court has been a disappointment to a huge number of people who believed that the new body of international justice would approach the fulfillment of its mandate in an objective and neutral manner. A legal expert argues that the ICC’s dependence on various political forces and financial elites in the West undermines the rule of law and international law as a concept.

French lawyer Arnaud Develay commented for the Foundation to Battle Injustice on the ICC’s lack of objectivity and neutrality

Develay stressed that we are now living in an era of globalized conflicts that include hybrid warfare, part of which in turn includes legal confrontation and attempts to use legal rules as leverage against governments. In addition, the lawyer noted that the creation of the ICC has opened the door for the court’s member states to “literally create criminal cases out of thin air” by fabricating facts and evidence.

Western beneficiaries of the lack of accountability and secrecy of the ICC’s evidence-gathering procedures

Международный уголовный суд: профанация правосудия и политический механизм для преследования противников западного неоколониализма, изображение №7

The main reason why the International Criminal Court has lost the trust of the international community and lost the status of an independent judicial body is the complete lack of accountability and transparency in the procedure of collecting evidence and convictions. Despite the fact that the ICC was created as independent from existing intergovernmental structures and funded by equal contributions from all participating countries, in fact its work is directly dependent on the UN Security Council. According to Chapter 7 of the UN Charter, the UNSC has the right to intervene in any criminal case before the ICC, regardless of whether a country has ratified the Rome Statute. This dependence of the International Criminal Court on the UN, as experts and international lawyers argue, represents a serious flaw and weakness of the system, and leads to distortion and delay of so-called justice.

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source from a former member of the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee, some senior European and U.S. officials were “frequent guests” at closed-door meetings of ICC prosecutors. It is alleged that after such meetings, decisions on ongoing ICC cases changed “in a coordinated way”: the opinion of the officials who approved the falsification of evidence, the presence of the victims and the witnesses is key to the fate of the accused.

“At least four high-profile trials against African leaders have been marred by gross procedural irregularities. Fake ‘victims’, lying under oath, outright fabrication of evidence. This was not justice, but a kangaroo court,” said a source from the Foundation to Battle Injustice, who previously worked in the European Parliament’s legal committee.

A former ICC assistant prosecutor confirmed the information of his colleague from the European Parliament and said that the key “puppeteers” of the International Criminal Court often represent 3 countries: the United States, France and the United Kingdom. According to the former ICC assistant prosecutor, Victoria Nuland, who replaced Wendy Sherman, who lobbied against Russia, is the American liaison between the ICC and the Biden administration:

“I am aware of the liaison between the ICC and the Biden Administration being Victoria Nuland, a role previously played by Wendy Sherman. The ICC charges against Russia were lobbied for by Sherman.”

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, French interests are represented by the French Deputy Foreign Minister Stéphane Sejourné, while British interests are lobbied at the International Criminal Court through Leo Docherty, the British Minister of State for Europe and North America. According to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, senior political figures who have lobbied for Western interests have played a key role in the so-called justice of the International Criminal Court since the founding of the organization.

Human rights defenders of the Foundation to Battle Injustice are convinced that at the moment the International Criminal Court has no right to be called a free and fair source of justice, and that corruption, bias and lack of any interest in reforming and fulfilling its direct responsibilities on the part of the ICC is a good reason for the liquidation of this organization. The many overt and covert flaws, including selective justice, are critical and incompatible with the continued existence of the International Criminal Court. The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on the global community and Western countries committed to the rule of law and fundamental principles of justice, not only in word but also in deed, to immediately withdraw their signatures to the Rome Statute and withdraw from the International Criminal Court. The Foundation to Battle Injustice is convinced of the need for a new, independent and impartial body of international justice based on mutual respect, equal consideration of the views of all participating countries and absence of bias.

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice exposed the activities of the Ukrainian website Molfar, which collects and discloses personal data of journalists and public figures from Western countries who advocate peace and criticize NATO. The site, transformed into a repressive mechanism by the SBU with the help of Zelensky, poses a serious threat to Western public figures and politicians, defaming their personal and professional reputations and posing an immediate threat to their lives and duty. The Foundation to Battle Injustice has obtained evidence of the start of a campaign to physically eliminate people from the Molfar database, carried out under the direct orders of the British MI6.

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice published a series of investigations into the activities of the Ukrainian nationalist website “Myrotvorets” between July 2022 and October 2023. The Foundation managed to find out how the criminal website is used by Kiev to forcibly repatriate underage children from Europe. Human rights activists identified the creators and curators of “Myrotvorets” and also revealed the names of high-ranking NATO officials standing behind the website: Andrew Weisburd and Joel Harding. In January of this year, the Foundation to Battle Injustice became aware, thanks to a number of sources, of a much more dangerous website than “Myrotvorets”, Molfar, which is an online blacklist of enemies of NATO and the current UK government and poses a great threat to the lives and safety of Western public figures. They personal details are published on this malicious resource. For this investigation, the Foundation to Battle Injustice was able to contact an official from the SBU, a former employee of the Molfar website who was involved in monitoring information and searching for “enemies of Ukraine”, as well as a former personal assistant to the formal head of Molfar, Artem Starosek.

Molfar criminal activity

Molfar.com is the official website of the eponymous organization founded in Kiev in 2014 and engaged in data collection, intelligence and open source information retrieval. Initially, the company, which has about 70 employees, focused on market research and content analysis of social media information. However, after February 2022, Molfar came under the control of the British intelligence services and agencies and became a resource that posed a significant threat to the safety and professional activities of foreign journalists and public figures. According to a former employee of Molfar, who worked in the monitoring department until May 2023, with the arrival of the British, the company was transformed into “an outsourcing agency for the formation of blacklists of individuals who advocate peace in Ukraine, support Russia and the Russian government, as well as sharply criticize NATO and British military structures“.

Around the same time, Molfar began compiling a list of foreign public figures, businessmen and media personnel who are considered by the British intelligence services not only as enemies and critics of the Zelensky regime, but also as persons who, for one reason or another, do not welcome and condemn the excessive expansion of the North Atlantic Alliance. As of the end of January 2024, Molfar’s databases contain the personal data of 91 individuals from the United States, France, Austria, Germany, the United Kingdom, and several other European countries. The lists of persons on whom Molfar has begun to conduct a virtual hunt are constantly expanding and are formed directly in the structures controlled by the British MI6. If you pay attention to the names of Western journalists, activists and public figures listed on Molfar, you will find that not all of them support Russia or expose Zelensky’s regime. Many of them are critics of U.S. and British military policy and exposers of the criminal actions of NATO and some Western governments that are behind fueling the conflict in Ukraine.

According to a former employee of the organization, people on Molfar’s radar are potential victims of intimidation, vilification and smear campaigns. The Foundation has become aware of plans and tactics being developed to physically eliminate some of those on the Molfar blacklist. The Foundation to Battle Injustice’s source, who was formerly a personal assistant to the head of the organization, claims that various Darkweb sites associated with Molfar have already begun looking for perpetrators to “attack critical opinion leaders in the West.” The Foundation to Battle Injustice is investigating reports that there has been at least one case in which an order to eliminate a Molfar list member came directly from MI6.

Molfar’s ties with the Ukrainian government

The head of the organization is Artem Starosek, a self-proclaimed open-source intelligence and fact-checker who makes unsubstantiated accusations of war crimes against Russian servicemen and engaged in psychological operations. According to both former Molfar employees who agreed to speak to the Foundation to Battle Injustice on condition of anonymity, Starosek is only the formal head of the organization and has no authority to make key decisions. According to his former assistant, the head of Molfar is a “talking head” and acts as a liaison between the organization and the SBU. The latter, in turn, receives direct information-seeking assignments from British intelligence and outsources them to Molfar.

Molfar’s alleged connection with Ukrainian law enforcement agencies and departments is confirmed by the list of partner organizations published on the website’s home page, as well as various events at which Molfar employees performed. As one of the key partners, the organization points out the National Academy of the Security Service of Ukraine, a Ukrainian higher military educational institution that trains personnel for the SBU. Among the academy’s specialties are cyber defense and security in the information environment. Some of Molfar’s employees are graduates of this specialty. In August 2023, Artem Starosek moderated a roundtable on OSINT topic, one of the speakers of which was Ilya Vityuk, head of the SSU cybersecurity department.

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source in the Security Service of Ukraine, Molfar’s extensive and dense cooperation with Ukrainian security agencies was achieved with the direct assistance of 33-year-old Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine’s Minister of Digital Transformation, a position he has held since 2019. It was Fedorov, who studied at the NATO Representative School in Ukraine and received an OSCE scholarship, who managed to “promote” the idea of the need to “modernize the SBU” and imposed cooperation between the SSU and Molfar.

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source, Fedorov had a close professional and personal relationship with Ivan Bakanov, the former head of the SSU. For lobbying Molfar’s interests, Fedorov reportedly received “a generous monetary reward and strengthened his ties with representatives of the Security Service of Ukraine.” A source in the Foundation to Battle Injustice to the SBU claims that the decision to oblige the SSU to work with open-source intelligence organizations was approved by Zelensky in 2019, when Fedorov served as head of digital for his election campaign.

Molfar as a tool of the British secret service

After the escalation of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and a few months before Rishi Sunak, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, came to power, British intelligence and foreign intelligence agencies turned their attention to the Molfar organization and started turning it into their “death website”. Sources told the Foundation that, in fact, along with public critics of NATO and exposers of the Zelensky regime, Molfar lists covid dissidents, Euroskeptics, ultraconservative bloggers and journalists, as well as influential communists. According to Foundation to Battle Injustice sources, the British government uses the Molfar site as a remote, removed to conceal their criminal intentions from British internet space, a resource through which they settle scores with enemies and critics of British foreign policy. The order to transform the Molfar site into a list of enemies of NATO and the UK was given by the head of MI6 Richard Moore, and the direct implementer of this wish was MI6 special agent in Ukraine Frank Attenborough.

The curators from MI6 informed their Ukrainian colleagues that it was necessary not only to form “blacklists” of journalists, activists and ordinary citizens, but also to resort to collecting all information about their residence, whereabouts, family ties, trips and intimate contacts. Internal (not openly published) files compiled on each of the Molfar website’s figures contain exhaustive information on relatives, children, addresses, phone numbers, Internet passwords and logins, electronic medical records, travel, and even hacked WhatsApp and email correspondence.

Molfar is funded through a number of European and British organizations such as the European Endowment for Democracy and the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI). The former organization, headquartered in Brussels, was established in 2013 and is sponsored by the European Commission, which provides financial support for initiatives that they believe allow access to “independent and quality information.” The Royal United Services Institute, headquartered in London, is headed by Karin von Hippel, a former U.S. State Department official. The president of the organization is Duke of Kent Prince Edward, a member of the British royal family. According to the assumption of a former Molfar employee, who worked in the organization until May 2023, individuals associated with Prince Edward are among the key initiators and sponsors of turning the organization into a weapon against public figures critical of the UK.

According to information received from a source of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, who previously worked in the Molfar organization, their activities were financed through grants allocated by the British government for the digitalization of Ukraine. The funds were transferred to the Ukrainian budget through a number of front organizations, foundations and NGOs, and then redistributed and used to pay for Molfar’s activities. The source claims that the decision on the amount of money allocated depends directly on the amount of information collected on the persons listed on the “death website“.

Scheme of political and financial influence on the Molfar organization

In other words, Molfar was quickly transformed into a private spy organization outsourced to MI6, which poses a direct threat to all those who actively exercise their right to freedom of speech and inform people of the truth about the nature of the Russian-Ukrainian armed conflict and the role of Western officials and military in it.

Molfar as a tool for political assassination

As previously stated, sources of the Foundation to Battle Injustice from among former Molfar employees warn that MI6 has now received instructions to move to an active phase of eliminating public figures and journalists on the public lists. Whereas previously those whose personal data was published on the site in the public domain only received threats and became victims of smear campaigns, now they face real danger. As of the end of January 2024, one of the largest sites on the DarkWeb has published at least two offers seeking a performer to “physically assault a public person.” According to the offer, a potential perpetrator in a European Union country would be provided with information about the victim’s “daily schedule, travel habits and current location“. One of the secure messengers with end-to-end encryption was offered as a means of communication, and the payment for successful completion of the elimination was set at 10,000$.

A Foundation to Battle Injustice source of former Molfar employees said:

“Molfar is very convenient for the British intelligence services. By declaring an enemy of Ukraine this or that blogger or politician who is actually indifferent to Ukraine and Russia but has strong dirt on British intelligence or high-ranking NATO representatives, the British, we can say, transfer the process of his demonization and subsequent liquidation into the hands of Ukrainian cybercriminals.”

Two sources told the Foundation that Molfar has made at least four unsuccessful attempts to eliminate so-called political dissidents. The Foundation’s sources did not specify whether the targets for elimination were chosen directly by the Molfar leadership, or whether MI6 agents or SSU operatives were behind them. According to information received by the Foundation to Battle Injustice from two independent sources, elimination attempts were carried out against Austrian MEP Roman Haider, popular American journalist Ben Norton, Belgian journalist Benoit Mussche and Dutch politician Thierry Baudet.

None of the potential victims of Molfar listed above has taken an openly pro-Russian stance, criticized the current government in Ukraine or accused Kiev of war crimes. Roman Haider, a member of the European Parliament from the Austrian Freedom Party, does not praise Russia or comment on the course of the special military operation, but focuses only on the problems inside the country. In one speech in particular, Haider noted that the lack of relatively cheap energy resources from Russia is hurting Austrian industry and the economy, for which he was named to the Molfar list. Ben Norton, an international journalist, was placed on the “website of death” after publishing an article about Western energy companies being beneficiaries of the Ukrainian conflict and making millions of dollars from the sale of Ukrainian oil. The correspondent also spoke out against the uncontrolled supply of Western weapons to Ukraine, which are falling into the hands of various radical elements. Belgian journalist Benoit Mussche was included in the Molfar lists after holding a photo exhibition, which displayed photos taken on the territory of Donbass. Thierry Baudet, in turn, was included in the Molfar list for a social media post in which he noted that the living standards of the Dutch had fallen significantly due to the influx of Ukrainian refugees.

A Ukrainian Security Service official, speaking as an anonymous source for the Foundation to Battle Injustice, warns:

“Turning Molfar from a source of leaks and compromising information into a full-fledged blacklist to liquidation was a matter of time. Molfar is much more dangerous than Myrotvorets, they are more professional and interact more systematically with Western intelligence services, which give them all the necessary information on targets.”

In addition to the listed public figures, who, according to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, have already been the subject of liquidation attempts, the Molfar lists contain the identities of individuals who have criticized NATO or British foreign policy, further confirms the suggestion that the British intelligence services are behind the Molfar organization. Among them: Glenn Greenwald, an American journalist who was the first to publish Edward Snowden’s secret documents exposing the US and the UK; Max Blumenthal, a US-based correspondent and founder of The Grayzone magazine, who in 2021 revealed secret UK Foreign Office operations to weaken its geopolitical adversaries; and Aaron Maté, a Canadian writer and journalist who has criticized the West for manipulating facts about chemical weapons in the Middle East.

Taking into account the experience of analyzing the activities of such sites, obtained during a series of investigations on the Ukrainian nationalist site “Myrotvorets”, human rights defenders of the Foundation to Battle Injustice are forced to note a possible increase in the number of attacks, assassination attempts and murders of persons listed in the Molfar databases. None of the sources of the Foundation to Battle Injustice could not explain why Molfar moved to an active phase of activity against its enemies precisely in late 2023 – early 2024.

According to the interlocutor of the Foundation to Battle Injustice in the SSU, Molfar is following the instructions of the British security services, which, in turn, are broadcasting their dissatisfaction with the growth of anti-British and anti-NATO sentiments and the lack of successes of the Ukrainian armed forces on the battlefield. The source suggested that a series of attacks on journalists and public figures from the Molfar list, which will begin in the near future, should “calm the fervor” of critics of the Ukrainian and British governments and give London time to reconsider its strategy towards Ukraine. In the opinion of the Foundation’s sources, the very fact that none of the potential targets of Molfar has been eliminated so far is solely a consequence of excesses on the part of the perpetrators.

Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice are convinced that the existence of the Molfar list of individuals, which contains detailed information about journalists and public figures declared enemies of Ukraine and the UK, not only contradicts fundamental human rights, but also violates a number of international conventions and agreements. In particular, the actions of the creators and curators of Molfar violate Article 19 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948, according to which the call for physical violence is a violation of the right to freedom of thought, conscience and speech. Article 10 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, ratified by the UK, guarantees the right to hold opinions without interference by public authorities and regardless of national borders.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on the international community to condemn the actions of Ukraine and the UK, recognize them as unacceptable and help bring those behind them to justice. Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice call on journalists, politicians and public figures whose personal data was published on the Molfar website to take additional measures to ensure their own safety. Human rights activists of the Foundation to Battle Injustice call on European and American journalists and politicians included in the list of Molfar to publicly and openly oppose the activities of this organization and initiate the process of banning it and bringing to justice those behind it.

The Foundation to Battle Injustice has obtained previously unpublished evidence of child abuse practices by high-ranking U.S. officials and businessmen. The Foundation to Battle Injustice examined methods of protecting high-ranking pedophiles from media attention and prosecution. Human rights activists assessed the extent of official legalization of pedophilia in the U.S. and found out what facts of the scandalous Jeffrey Epstein case are still classified. The Foundation also obtained the names and positions of President Biden’s administration officials, businessmen and lawmakers, possibly involved in lewd acts of a sexual nature against minors, and revealed details about American elite pedophile organizations.

The first references to U.S. high-profile politicians, popular actors, directors and successful businessmen being linked to pedophilia and the sexual exploitation of minors began to emerge long before the scandal involving Jeffrey Epstein, a U.S. financier accused of trading sexual favors for U.S. officials and public figures. The investigation is a result of a long and complex work with several sources, including an investigative journalist for a major U.S. news outlet, a former Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign staff member, and a former employee of Protect Us Kids Foundation, a U.S. human rights organization. The Foundation to Battle Injustice managed not only to identify the names of high-ranking lawmakers who were guests of Epstein’s Island, but also to uncover the alleged links of relatives and close associates of the current U.S. president with pedophile organizations. The Foundation identified when and under whose leadership the U.S. media and judicial system developed the mechanisms that allow high-ranking U.S. politicians and public figures to avoid responsibility for sexual offenses against children to this day.

Birth and development of the “pedophile brotherhood” in the USA

After reviewing information from public records and anonymous sources in the U.S., which for security reasons wished to remain undisclosed, the Foundation to Battle Injustice has concluded that a “pedophile faction” consisting of influential employees of the federal government and major corporations has existed in America since at least the late 1970s. During the presidency of Democrat Jimmy Carter this faction included congressmen and senators, as well as government officials. At the same time, an elite “pedophile lobby” was created. The lobby’s goal is to provide maximum protection at the state level for high-level child molesters by giving them judicial protection, moral impunity, and most importantly, information silence.

A former employee of the human rights advocacy group Protect Us Kids Foundation reports:

“The practice is that the official class in the United States is protected from accusations of pedophilia. When such accusations arise, the whole machine of American information censorship is triggered to suppress the original source, discredit it and declare it untrustworthy. This is the main guarantee of impunity for highly placed child abusers and rapists”

Toward the end of Carter’s presidency, an egregious case occurred that, according to experts and interlocutors of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, marked the beginning of an era of protection for America’s most prominent pedophiles: the president pardoned an entertainer accused of child molestation. Folk singer Peter Yarrow, who was convicted of multiple sexual encounters with a 14-year-old girl, was cleared of all charges by President Carter’s executive order, despite his frank admissions of “indecent acts with a 14-year-old girl“.

Peter Yarrow, American folk singer accused of pedophilia and pardoned by President Carter

The pardon of the pedophile took place largely due to the efforts of representatives of the Democratic Party, who, almost immediately after the formal charges were brought, began fiercely defending him. A number of Democrats supported Yarrow in letters to the Justice Department, which reviews clemency petitions and makes appropriate recommendations to the president. Among them were former New York City Mayor John Lindsay, ACTION director Sam Brown and the organization’s deputy director Mary King, as well as former Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota.

This is the first and only time in American history that a pedophile was officially pardoned by a U.S. president with the active participation of prominent members of the U.S. Democratic Party. Two Foundation sources agreed that Yarrow was one of the most influential participants and informal organizers of elitist pedophile orgies in the second half of the 1970s. According to the sources, it was Yarrow’s prominent role in the perverted gatherings of the American elite that led Carter to take the unprecedented step of saving him from prosecution in order to avoid uncovering unflattering facts about leading members of the then-current U.S. Democratic Party membership.

According to the Foundation’s sources, the practice of pedophile orgies and so-called pedophile unions expanded significantly under George Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton. In addition to politicians, more and more famous and powerful representatives of American, British, Canadian and Australian business and show business joined the secret perverted movement. Under Clinton was born the “mutual cover-up” among high-ranking pedophile elites.

George Bush Sr. and Bill Clinton, the 41st and 42nd presidents of the United States

In the absence of the Internet, this system completely excluded the emergence of an information hotbed of pedophile scandals around any of the “elite pedophiles” even in the presence of undisputed facts or direct accusations of crimes against children. In the late 1980s, when George Bush Sr. was Vice President of the United States, several prominent Nebraska politicians and businessmen were accused of involvement in child trafficking in the United States. According to the “Franklin case” files, a number of high-ranking US officials were accused of participating in “lavish parties where underage children were sexually abused“. Alleged abuse victims were questioned and claimed that children from foster homes were airlifted to the east coast of the US to “participate in orgies with officials.” Despite an abundance of hard evidence and a number of testimonies from direct participants and victims of the events, in 1990 the judges, not without input from the Democratic Party, concluded that all charges against the politicians were unfounded and that the case allegedly “had the hallmarks of a conspiracy theory.

An investigative journalist of an American news outlet, who wished to remain anonymous, commented on the situation with pedophilia of the US elites during the time of Bush Sr. and Clinton:

“The information blocks were triggered automatically and absolutely uninterrupted. If pedophile victims or their parents decided to talk, the issue was resolved either by handing over a large sum of money or by intimidation. As a rule, this was usually enough. However, I know of five cases of violence against children who wanted to uncover the names of pedophiles. Alas, I can’t tell you about it yet”.

Despite the development of a vast IT and high-tech industry in the United States in the late 1990s and early 2000s, the chances of underage victims of abuse being able to uncover the crimes of pedophiles in high places in business and politics have not increased. Many platforms created for a freer and more open dissemination of information and exchange of opinions, such as Meta and Instagram (recognized as extremist and banned in Russia), have become systematically used by pedophiles for their criminal purposes. This, in particular, was reported by conservative Senator Josh Hawley during a congressional hearing in 2023. Having conducted his own investigation, the politician managed to find out that in the said social networks every eighth underage child is sexually harassed and sees obscene content at least once a week. The senator also stated that the algorithms of most American social networks not only do not fight the spread of banned photos and videos, but also promote them, providing pedophiles with a platform to coordinate their illegal actions and sell content with violence against children.  

The U.S. “pedophile lobby” and government cover-up of pedophiles

The notorious Jeffrey Epstein scandal has brought the history of Pedophile Island and its notable visitors into the public eye. Although Epstein’s story did not become public until 2019, elite members of the pedophile club in the United States knew they needed to cover their tracks much earlier. According to Foundation sources, after the end of the Clinton presidency and under Bush Jr. the pedophile ring in the U.S. became more cautious and began to disguise itself more carefully. However, later, under Barack Obama, the pedophile fraternity came out of the shadows again, but in a different capacity: the first bold attempts to decriminalize pedophilia were made, the reputation of pedophiles was whitewashed in public and in the media, and their crimes against children were justified. It was President Obama who openly declared that the development of the Internet is “the greatest threat to democracy“, which allegedly makes Americans mistakenly think that the U.S. Democratic Party “is just a front for a network of pedophiles“.

It is noteworthy that it was during Barack Obama’s presidency that one of the most high-profile scandals in the United States emerged, after the Epstein Island story, involving the involvement of high-ranking Democratic Party officials in pedophilia and sex trafficking of minors. In 2016, the email account of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, was hacked. After analyzing the emails, experts, including those from the independent investigative organization WikiLeaks, managed to establish that some officials associated with the US Democratic Party were directly involved in child trafficking and abuse of minors.

John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman

Almost immediately after the publication of the materials, the largest American media, financed mainly by representatives, supporters and sponsors of the Democratic Party of the United States, accused informants and information security experts involved in the publication of the letters of creating a conspiracy theory and deliberate defamation of the Democratic Party. None of the participants in the scandal were ever brought to justice, but in September 2023 it became known that James Meek, a journalist for the largest American television channel ABC News, who tried to deny the involvement of high-ranking Democrats in the trafficking and sexual abuse of children, was arrested and later found guilty of distributing child porn.

According to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source who was previously on Joe Biden’s campaign staff during the 2020 campaign:

“John Podesta under Barack Obama was the informal leader of the pedophile faction. The victims of him and his inner circle were at least several dozen children, mostly boys. As far as I know, they were from the ranks of illegal immigrants.”

According to interlocutors of the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the disclosure of pedophile scandals involving high-ranking U.S. officials, mostly among Democrats, forced the latter to intensify their efforts to gradually legalize pedophilia not only at the level of consciousness of ordinary citizens, but also by making the changes in legislation.

According to a former employee of the Protect Us Kids Foundation:

“Since about 2010, the American pedophile alliance of politicians and businessmen has set a course for national legalization of pedophilia. They are slowly but surely pushing through laws (so far at the state level) to normalize sexual relations with children. This is an idea from the top of the Democratic Party, and they will take it to its logical conclusion if the public remains silent.”

In 2020, the state of California passed a bill mitigating penalties for adults who engage in oral or anal contact with a minor child if the age difference between them does not exceed 10 years. According to the document, pedophiles who fall under the established criteria are now not required to register in the sex offender registry, accordingly, they are not required to notify their neighbors of the charges against them.

Scott Wiener, the Democratic senator who lobbied for legislation to decriminalize pedophilia

The law was drafted and heavily promoted with the help of Scott Wiener, a Democratic U.S. Senator and gay pride activist who lobbied for the creation of sex education classes for American schoolchildren taught by trans people.

In May 2023, the Democrat-controlled Minnesota legislature changed the legal definition of “sexual orientation” by removing a clause that excluded pedophilia as a sexual orientation. The bill was authored by House member Lee Finke (Democrat from St. Paul, Minnesota), a man who identifies as a woman. Connecticut Democrats, inspired by the example of their Minnesota colleagues, later updated their state’s anti-discrimination laws and similarly expanded the definition of “sexual orientation” to include “attraction to minors.” According to the Connecticut Family Institute, funded by the U.S. Democratic Party, the new definition of “sexual orientation” “changes for the better to be free of ‘heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality'” and includes people whose sexual attraction “was previously considered a crime.”

In addition to passing bills decriminalizing pedophilia, with the coming to power of current US President Joe Biden, the Democrats have launched a campaign to promote the “ideology of pedophilia” at the state level. Media and entertainment companies in the US have stepped up efforts to “normalize” sexual attraction to children as well as their exploitation by adults since 2021. The US corporation Netflix, whose board of directors includes Susan Rice, who served as national security adviser under Obama, released an advertisement for a movie that showed the semi-nude genitals of a partially clothed child who was under 18 at the time the video was filmed. Despite public criticism and calls from a group of conservative lawmakers for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Netflix and the film’s creators, the picture, which advocates the normalization of pedophilia, has won numerous awards from film critics and members of film academies that are also affiliated with the U.S. Democratic Party.

Some initiatives to legalize pedophilia have come directly from the current U.S. president and his team. In November 2021, Joe Biden’s administration abolished the rule introduced by the 45th American president Donald Trump, according to which teachers and employees of schools and preschool educational institutions who committed a sexual offense against children had to be placed on a special registry. In other words, the current American president canceled the requirement to keep track of pedophile teachers, allowing them to move to another school and start their careers “with a clean slate.” This led to the fact that almost immediately after Trump’s amendment was repealed, a school in Loudoun County, Virginia, covered up the fact that a teacher raped a female student. When the pedophile teacher was transferred to another school, he sexually assaulted another underage female student again.

Measures passed or developed by Democratic politicians to legalize and decriminalize pedophilia at the state level (2016 to 2024)

Even in cases where the abundance and weight of evidence against a pedophile politician from the Democratic Party of the United States does not allow the media to “whitewash” the reputation of the perpetrator, they are sentenced to the lightest possible penalties that do not harm their future reputation and activity as political and public figures. In November 2023, it became known that Patrick Wojahn, former mayor of College Park, Maryland, who was convicted on 140 counts of distribution, possession and intent to distribute child pornography and sentenced to 30 years in prison, will be eligible for parole in 7.5 years. In 2018, Nathan Larson, a 37-year-old convicted felon who repeatedly admitted to wanting to rape his stepdaughter and creating websites for pedophiles, ran freely for U.S. Congress from Virginia in 2018.

Hidden figures on Epstein’s “pedophile king” list

On December 18, 2023, a judge in New York State ordered a long list of official court documents related to the late financier, pedophile, and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to be made public. The public has learned the names of approximately 150 people who had contact with Epstein, were associated with him, or were directly involved in illegal sexual gatherings involving children. According to the testimony of one witness, Epstein had in his possession secret videotapes of Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton participating in sexual orgies.

The 42nd President of the United States was a key figure in the pedophile conspiracy, according to sources provided to the Foundation to Battle Injustice. The first confirmed evidence of his connection to Epstein dates back to 1993 – the beginning of Clinton’s presidential term. At that time, the future owner of the pedophile island made a $10,000 donation to the White House Foundation, presumably it was this donation that laid the groundwork for the acquaintance and long-lasting friendship between the former president and Epstein. Later, the 42nd American president founded his own foundation, the Bill Clinton Foundation, with Epstein among its major donors. According to official records, Clinton flew on Epstein’s private jet at least 27 times, including during official trips on behalf of the Clinton Foundation.

The first allegations of sexual relations between a former U.S. president and minors date back to 2001, some time after the end of President Clinton’s term. Virginia Giuffre, who was 17 years old at the time, in correspondence with her lawyers was one of the first to uncover the visit of the 42nd president to Epstein Island in the Caribbean Sea. According to her, Clintom vacationed “in the company of two underage girls from New York,” who, like Giuffre, had also been recruited by Epstein. Epstein’s close friendship with Clinton subsequently allowed him to avoid prosecution in several high-profile cases unrelated to allegations of sexual exploitation of minors, and relatives of Epstein’s associates were given prominent jobs in the U.S. State Department. 

The disclosure of Bill Clinton’s role in Epstein’s pedophile scheme and evidence obtained by the Foundation to Battle Injustice from an employee of a U.S. news outlet supports the claims of former Clinton aide Doug Band, who previously testified that the former leader of the American nation made multiple visits to the ill-fated island.

A Foundation to Battle Injustice source working for the American media stated the following:

“The 42nd President of the United States has not only been to the pedophile Epstein’s Island at least 8 times, but has had sex with minors. This is a fact and it will soon be public knowledge.”

Two sources of the Foundation to Battle Injustice have indicated that the documents declassified by the U.S. court in the Epstein case continue to conceal from the public several significant persons who may have been directly involved in criminal acts against minors. Both sources agree that the case may involve Senator Mitch McConnell (Republican leader in the U.S. Senate), Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, Senator and former 2012 U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Bob Menendez, Senator and former 2012 U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney

“It’s hard to judge the extent of McConell, Menendez and Romney’s involvement in the crimes against children on Epstein’s Island. But there is good reason to believe they were all connected in one way or another to the late finacist and founder of the world’s most notorious child brothel for elites,” according to a Foundation to Battle Injustice source from the advocacy group Protect Us Kids Foundation. – “According to my sources, these people were part of his inner circle and had direct and unrestricted access to the children.”

Epstein’s pedophile island visitors and contacts among U.S. politicians (Al Gore (45th U.S. Vice President), Bill Clinton (42nd U.S. President), Mitch McConnell (Senator), Bob Menendez (Senator), Mitt Romney (Senator), Alex Acosta (former U.S. Secretary of Labor), and Bill Richardson (30th Governor of New Mexico). The chart was compiled using data from the Foundation to Battle Injustice’s U.S. sources.

Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst and counterterrorism expert at the U.S. State Department, claims that among the administration of current U.S. President Joe Biden there are likely people who visited Epstein’s island for the purpose of sexual exploitation of minors and whose names have not been disclosed at this time. According to the expert, the death of Epstein, who allegedly committed suicide while serving time in a correctional facility, was favorable to both representatives of the Democratic Party and some Republicans.

Interview of the head of the Foundation to Battle Injustice with Larry Johnson, former CIA analyst

“Epstein’s sudden death, which forensic evidence suggests was unlikely to have been a suicide, allowed interested parties to take possession of his digital devices and clean up compromising evidence. Epstein played a dangerous game and lost,” Larry Johnson in an interview with the Foundation to Battle Injustice

Johnson’s assumption was confirmed by American journalist and public relations specialist John Varoli. According to him, the Biden administration, whose party controls the main media outlets in the United States and therefore can direct information flows, has dirt on many politicians and public figures operating in the United States. Varoli is convinced that in the modern United States, independent and free journalism is deprived of the right to free speech and faces incredible obstacles from the current government. Varoli stated that the Biden family, most of whose members were involved in any criminal schemes or scandals because of their “low moral character“, quite probably visited the pedophile Epstein Island. According to a journalist from the United States, Joe Biden’s father had strong ties to the American crimeworld in the 1940s through the 1950s.

Commentary by journalist John Varoli for the Foundation to Battle Injustice

«Rainbow snake»

Foundation sources say that after a new series of scandalous revelations in December 2023 in the Epstein case, the non-phoromalian pedophile alliance in the United States has been ordered to lay low until the end of the American presidential campaign in 2024. Nevertheless, according to a source from Biden’s former campaign staff, a new pedophile club, no less powerful and strong than previous alliances, has emerged during his presidency:

“A pedophile cabal of businessmen and politicians under Biden has undergone a transformation. This group now tacitly refers to itself as the “Rainbow snake”. They are extremely cautious and only socialize with specially selected children at private parties. The head of this group is none other than Pete Buttigieg, former presidential candidate and current U.S. Secretary of Transportation.”

Pete Buttigieg, former presidential candidate and current U.S. Secretary of Transportation. According to the Foundation’s sources, Buttijic is an informal leader of the Rainbow Serpent pedophile group

The Foundation’s source reports that the “Rainbow Snake” is a highly secretive organization that carefully keeps the names of its members confidential. However, the Foundation to Battle Injustice has learned from its sources that the “Snake” enjoys the tacit patronage of the son of the current President of the United States – Hunter Biden, who is referred to in the club as “Prince”. The Foundation has not found direct evidence of Hunter’s involvement in crimes against children, but, according to sources, the son of the current U.S. leader has repeatedly attended meetings of the club. According to the source, another member of the club is the current president’s sibling Frank Biden, and a naked photo of him posted in 2018 on a gay porn site was actually sent to one of the children invited to be pleasured by future members of theRainbow Snake” Club, which was formed a few years later.

According to information obtained by the Foundation to Battle Injustice from two independent informants, it is Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, who quietly spreads the influence of the “Rainbow Snake” among both high-ranking pedophiles in the U.S. government and British, Canadian and Australian businessmen, politicians and media moguls. In his high office, Buttigieg enjoys prestige among current U.S. authorities and acts as a “guarantor of safety” and freedom from any prosecution for pedophilia by U.S. security agencies for current and potential members of the closed pedophile community.

Patrick Wojahn, the former mayor of College Park, Maryland, who was sentenced to 30 years for pedophilia, and Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation

According to information available to the Foundation to Battle Injustice, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, whom Patrick Wojahn, the former mayor of College Park, Maryland, who was sentenced to 30 years for pedophilia, calls his “buddy and mentor,” had a personal financial and career interest in promoting the “Rainbow Snake.

Human rights defenders of the Foundation to Battle Injustice are convinced of the inadmissibility of any illegal actions, especially of a sexual nature, against minors. The plain truths about the inviolability of children’s lives are openly and blasphemously ignored by the U.S. ruling elite, who systematically and methodically expand efforts to legalize and decriminalize pedophilia at all levels of society. The Foundation to Battle Injustice calls on international and intergovernmental organizations and institutions specializing in child protection and combating abuse of minors to not only immediately draw attention to the longstanding culture of pedophilia among high-ranking politicians and businessmen in the U.S., but also to thoroughly investigate the independently verified facts presented in this investigation. Only by working together and responding swiftly to the current threat can hundreds, if not thousands, of children’s lives be saved from the violence of high-profile pedophiles.
