Disinfo: "Hunger riots" sweep across Ukraine


Ukraine is swept off by the so-called hunger riots.


Recurrent narrative undermining Ukraine. The term "hunger riots" is used to describe the situation in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, where some shop owners protested in the street while respecting sanitary interpersonal distances, and gave interviews. They demand the opening of their shops to maintain a minimum turnover. The definition of a riot is "a violent public disorder"; a protest of peaceful citizens cannot be called a riot. The video shows that people take part in a peaceful static demonstration respecting sanitary distances. The ASS news agency showed a video from the same source with pictures of the protesters and didn't mention any violence.
