Disinfo: During the annexation of Crimea, Ukrainian army did not organise…

Summary

During the annexation of Crimea, Ukrainian army did not organise any resistance to the Russian army, because Ukrainian troops took the side of Russia and became an “army of the people of the Crimea.”

Disproof

Ukrainian army was ordered not to fire, because Kyiv hoped for a peaceful solution of the conflict. After the annexation, a significant part of Ukrainian troops were evacuated from Crimea to the continental part of Ukraine.

Ukrainians want to eradicate Orthodoxy

Ukrainians want to eradicate Orthodoxy. “Ukrainism” is an ideology directed not only against Russians, but against the Orthodox church as well. This conception was created in the West, by Austro-Hungarians and by Poles, and now it is fulfilled in Ukraine.

Disproof

No evidence given. Orthodoxy is popular amongst Ukrainian citizens; amongst the active churches in Ukraine there is the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchat.
