The war in Ukraine is directed solely against Russia. This includes the extermination of the people of Novorossiya. There is also an ideological and economic war (sanctions) going on against Russia. Anglo-Saxons also aim to destroy the Russian Orthodox Church.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. Outside of the Russian media there have been no credible reports of threats to the Russian-descent or Russian speaking population (bit.ly/1Tl9X7W), . // The EU imposed restrictive measures against the Russian Federation in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of a neighbouring sovereign country (bit.ly/19wwzP3), . // No evidence given for the rest of the claims.
