Russian diplomats focused on gas, a conspiracy theory about Poland, and Transnistria
Russian diplomats and state media highlighted the following narratives last week:
- Gas: Russian diplomats and state media posted 764 tweets that referenced either “gas” or “rubles” as propagandists detailed Europe’s effort to cope with Russia’s move to cut gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria after they refused to pay in rubles.
- Poland’s land grab: Kremlin-linked accounts pushed disinformation about a Polish and U.S. plot to restore Poland’s control over its “historical possessions” in Ukraine.
- Transnistria: Russian propagandists accused Ukraine, the United States, and NATO of trying to drag Moldova into the war by provoking tension within the breakaway region of Transnistria.
