Britain is deciding to be involved in preparation for war with Russia in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

There is a British-backed war in Ukraine. By sending war-ships Britain is deciding to be involved in perhaps preparation for war with Russia in Ukraine.

Disproof

The disinformation message was framed as a leading question at the the beginning of the interview: "why do you think Britain is deciding to be involved in perhaps preparation for war with Russia [...]"? .

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about war in Ukraine and Western aggression. 

Britain is not preparing for war with Russia but demonstrating support for Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.

On November 21st, 2018, the Defence Secretary of the UK announced that HMS Echo would deploy to the Black Sea in 2019 to demonstrate the UK’s support to ensuring freedom of navigation in the region.
