Disinfo: There is a Civil War in Ukraine


A civil war in Ukraine is being waged between two nations: the Western Ukrainian nation and the Novorusskyi nation (the “Neo-Russians” a real nation inhabiting half of Ukraine).


The "Novorusskyi nation" has never existed in the history of either Russia or Ukraine. The term was designed and then coined by Kremlin propaganda to justify the aggression of Moscow against Kyiv. // There is no civil war in Ukraine, there is Russian military aggression in Ukraine, which was confirmed recently by the International Criminal Court.

Visa-liberalisation with Ukraine will flood Europe with Ukrainian Nazis

Visa-liberalisation with Ukraine will lead to the influx of Ukrainian neonazis into Europe. Also, there is a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.


The visa liberalisation will grant Ukrainians only short-term visits to Europe (90 days every half a year), and is not connected to the issue of labour liberalisation for Ukrainians. The visa liberalisation doesn't mean abolition of border security checks. Furthermore, all Ukrainians seeking to use the visa-free regime will have to posses a biometric passport.

A recurring narrative about Nazis in Ukraine; similar case here.

Ukraine proposes to accept middle-Eastern migrants in exchange for visa-free travel into the EU

Ukraine proposes to accept middle-Eastern migrants in exchange for visa-free travel into the EU.


The headline does not correspond with the content of the article. The visa liberalisation is not linked to migration policies but is based on benchmarks fulfilled by Ukraine. The proposal referred to was voiced by a civil servant on his personal Facebook page. It is not Ukrainian official policy.
