Medvedev poses next to map where Russia has a border with Romania at the mouth of the Danube

The Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, appeared in a so-called “Mao uniform” (with a tunic closed at the neck, following the fashion imposed by the former Chinese communist leader) during a TV show in which the famous map with Ukraine dismembered and divided between Russia, Poland, Hungary and Romania. In the same map, Russia also shares a border with Romania at the mouth of the Danube.

“Ukraine is, without a doubt, Russia,” Medvedev said during his appearance on the Russia TV show. The lands on both banks of the Dnieper are an integral part of Russia’s strategic borders,” the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council also said.

The map appearing on stage behind Dmitry Medvedev is the same one that was published in the summer of 2022 on Medvedev’s Telegram account, which said the map was created “by Western analysts”.

According to that map, the territory of Ukraine would be limited only to the Kiev region, the rest being under the administration of Russia (including the Odessa area and the mouths of the Danube, Poland, Hungary and Romania. In addition to the north of Bukovina, Romania would also “belong” to the Vinita region, from the central-western part of Ukraine.

The Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted and considered that “such attitudes are part of the propaganda and disinformation tools used by the Russian Federation for a long time and which was amplified after the start of the illegal and illegitimate war of aggression against Ukraine”.

The year 2024 promises to be extremely rich in disinformation that the Kremlin’s propaganda will try to roll into the public space through all kinds of “narratives”, according to an analysis published by, a special website created by The European Commission for detecting and reporting fake news and the main themes of Russian propaganda. One of Moscow’s “favorite” misinformation, which also circulated in 2023, refers to the “Ukrainian territories” that would “return” including to Romania, in the context of a possible defeat of the Ukrainian army before the Russian Federation.
