Summary of Disinformation

Aided by a 500 member strong Islamic battalion, Ukraine delivers chemical weapons to the Middle East.

Disproof

The source for the disinformation is Eduard Basurin, DPR spokesperson, who is well known for disseminating disinformation. In the past he has announced that a Ukrainian tank crushed a civilian car, that American snipers are working in Donbas, that the Ukrainian army has shelled OSCE monitors, among other stories. // Ukraine signed the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1993; the agreement was ratified in 1998. The treaty outlaws the production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons. The Organization for the prohibition of Chemical Weapons administers the treaty and publishes an Information Bulletin in which it tracks countries still possessing chemical weapons and means of production. Ukraine is not on this list.bit.ly/2oXvNFB,
