Zepp-LaRouche Targeted by Ukraine’s NATO-Run ‘Disinformation Center’
May 28, 2022 (EIRNS)—The same NATO-run “Center for Countering Disinformation” that launched a broadside against Col. Richard H. Black (ret.) last week for his ground-breaking April 26 interview with EIR’s Mike Billington (which now has upwards of 565,000 views), today published a nasty slander attack on Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche. Clearly upset at the leading role played by Zepp-LaRouche and the Schiller Institute in organizing support for a new international security and development architecture, as the only way to stop the drive for war, the CCD accuses her of spreading “Russian disinformation,” for exposing the culpability of NATO’s eastward march over three decades in provoking the current conflict in Ukraine.
The Center for Countering Disinformation, which functions out of President Zelenskyy’s National Security and Defense Council, was set up from the outset as a NATO-run “international hub” for information warfare. Their Instagram posting stated, in machine-translation from the original Ukrainian: “German politician and head of the Schiller Institute Helga Zepp-LaRouche blames Western countries for the fact that their leaders have not listened to Putin. H. Zepp-LaRouche organized an international discussion on the New Security Architecture of the World and the Threat of World War III. The author discusses the Kremlin’s narratives about the fact that for 10 years the world has been trying to dismantle Russia. In her words, the problem of the war in Ukraine is that ‘Germany and the EU have set their course towards NATO, the United States and Britain and are in a confrontation with Russia.’ H. Zepp-LaRouche has been pushing the rhetoric of Russia in the Western information space for over 10 years.”
The off-Center has also published an attack on Ray McGovern, the former CIA analyst and founder of the VIPS (Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity), who shared the podium with Zepp-LaRouche, Colonel Black and others at a May 26 Schiller Institute event to counter the war drive.
