MH-17 tragedy was a special operation executed by Ukraine and those who back Kyiv in the West, in order to discredit Russia.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. The international team pinpoint a hill in farmland west of Pervomaiskyi controlled by separatists as a launch site.

The Eurovision 2017 song contest that is to take place in Kyiv will be a Satanic ritual symbolising the destruction of the common Russian and Ukrainian history as a single nation. Its goal is to reorient Ukraine towards the West and enslave it. Moreover, the contest will take place on a formerly holy site, the St. Sophia Cathedral – Ukraine’s main Orthodox cathedral.

Disproof

The Eurovision song contest does not relate to Satanism and is not aimed at the ‘enslaving of the Ukrainians’. Moreover, only the opening ceremony will be held on the square in front of the St. Sophia Cathedral, the venue for many theatrical performances. The rest will take place in the newly built Exhibition Centre in Kyiv.
