A limited military conflict may erupt while a Canadian ship is standing in the Odessa port

Summary of Disinformation

This is how Poroshenko will win the elections: a Canadian ship is standing in the Odessa port, all the sailors are sitting at the bar, there is an explosion, three days later someone from Donetsk is charged with the accusations; the Canadians respond. And three days later, Poroshenko, as Commander-in-Chief, delivers a speech and receives 53% of votes in the election.


Conspiracy theory. Consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about provocations and Ukrainian presidential election.
