Summary

About 10 authors designed the Ukrainian language on the basis of South Russian dialects at the end of the 19th century.

Disproof

No evidence given. The first historical state with a Slavic settlement was formed around Kyiv more than two centuries before the foundation of Moscow. Throughout the centuries, Ukrainians maintained their own cultural and linguistic identity. The distinction is apparent e.g. through the fact that in 1654, Ukraine and Russia needed translators to sign the Treaty of Pereyaslav.

Europe will ban Ukraine from growing wheat, as the Baltic States have been forbidden to develop their agriculture before. Therefore, Ukraine will be left only with one thing, to poison Europeans with drugs.

Disproof

Groundless conspiracy theory. The Baltic states were not forbidden to develop their agriculture.

Europe has always provided Ukraine with misfortunes, grief and deaths

Europe has always provided Ukraine with misfortunes, grief and deaths. Whenever Ukraine united with Russia, they always prospered.

Disproof

The EU is both currently and historically the biggest international donor to Ukraine, and has proposed an overall support package of at least €11bn to help stabilise the economic and financial situation. // For Ukraine's "prospering" during the period of USSR, see e.g. Timothy Snyder's "Bloodlands".
