Romania and Hungary have territorial claims to Ukraine

The Romanians are demanding  – yes, this is the idea of “Great Romania” – to get back the territories seized by the Soviet Union: Northern Bukovina that is now the part of Chernivtsi region, Ukraine. And then the South Bessarabia, which is part of Odessa region and Moldova. The Hungarians demand part of Transcarpathia, where 150 thousand Hungarians live now.

[—] there is no Ukrainian identity there […]. It does not exist. 85 percent of people living there are ethnic Russians […]. The majority of the Ukrainian population is ethnic Russians.

Disproof

This is recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation as neither Romania or Hungary claims any territory of Ukraine.

The 2001 Ukrainian census found out that there were only 17,3% [not 85%] of those Ukrainian citizens, who identified themselves as ethnic Russians.

Ukraine is committed to European values like fascism in the 30s and 40s

Ukraine has stated that it is committed to European values but it did not specify what kind of European values. Apparently, to the values ​​that were all-European during the period of the thirties and forties in the 20th century – when Europe was under the rule of fascism.
