A map shows: Kyiv's eccentricity has already split the country

Summary of Disinformation

[A map of Ukraine divided between Russia, Hungary, Romania and Poland is shown on the studio screen with just a rump state left around Kyiv.]

“Kyiv’s eccentricity has already split the country”. Since Transcarpathia belonged to Hungary prior to the beginning of the 20th century, Budapest wants to “regain control” of the region, “even if no one is openly talking about it”. “In the south it’s not at all historically Ukrainian either” and “the Poles are keeping an eye on Ukrainian Galicia, Polissia and Volhynia”.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation undermining Ukraine's statehood and territorial integrity. No EU country claims any territory from Ukraine. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=ukraine+romania&disinfo_issue=&date=

As for Moscow's aggression: The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
