Disinfo: Cannibalistic rituals are rampant in Ukrainian society

Summary

Cannibalistic rituals are rampant in Ukrainian society. // The EU provoked the Ukrainian Revolution in 2014 which was implemented with the involvement of Nazi groups.

Disproof

Absurd and without evidence. // The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), .

The Aidar battalion is responsible for the Odessa killings of 2014. // Savchenko was captured carrying a US-made target designation system by rebels in Ukraine. // She is a fascist who became a legend in Ukraine for hating Russians.

Disproof

There is no evidence of Aidar's involvement in 2014 Odessa tragedy. // There is no evidence for such claims. // She has only criticized the Russian leadership not the Russian nation (bit.ly/1MwPIxm), .
