Anglo-Saxons realise that Ukraine is the most practical instrument in the fight against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

“The US is moving the risks of a confrontation over Syria to Ukraine. Ukraine is the bridgehead for the fight of the collective West against Russia,” as “Anglo-Saxons realize that Ukraine is the most practical instrument in the fight against Russia”. Provocations inspired by the West are likely to happen on Ukraine’s border with Crimea, in southeast Ukraine and on the Azov Sea shore.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the West and Ukraine as aggressors. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77319&date=

The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT. The European Union does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea and continues to condemn this violation of international law, and that Russia’s illegal actions remain a direct challenge to international security, with grave implications for the international legal order that protects the unity and sovereignty of all States.
