Disinfo: EU accepts a Kyiv government, filled to the brim with Nazis

Summary

The European countries are aware of the facts that the new Kiev government is filled to the brim with various radical and Nazi elements, it furthermore funds Nazis, as it even introduced a pension reform for veterans from the Nazi-infested elements. Furthermore, it supports radical and Nazi-like ideologies, such as the Ukrainian hero Stepan Bandera and his ideology, various Nazi elements soldiers’ uniforms and so forth. This, in turn, means that more than likely Europe understands that the Kiev government employs various methods of oppression, such as illegal detachments, censorship, political “witch hunts” and more, simply to remain in power.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative painting the Ukrainian politics dominated by fascist/Nazi groups and ideology.

The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy. The accusation of Nazism is one of the favourite techniques of pro-Kremlin outlets, read our past analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest.

Far-right groups enjoyed a very limited presence during the Euromaidan itself and had poor results in the 2014 presidential and parliamentary elections. The "Right Sector" candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections. In the 2019 election cycle, far-right candidates fell short of the 5% minimum guaranteeing entry into parliament.

Unirea political block will transform the Moldovan society into a fascist one

The declared course of Unirea political block is equal to the transformation of the Moldovan society into a fascist one, in its Romanian variation.

 

Disproof

Recurring the narrative that all national parties campaigning for EU and NATO membership are fascists.

The ”Unirea” electoral bloc was announced publicly on January 15, 2020. It is created by 5 political groups that advocate for the union of the Republic of Moldova with Romania and, implicitly, for the accession to the EU and NATO. There is no mention, in public speeches at the event, about sympathies for fascism.

NATO will be using Ukrainians in military conflicts around the world

Ukrainians are trained to replace the representatives of the “more civilised” Western countries in hot spots around the world, as members of the “multinational military units”, and even in private military companies.

NATO plans clearly demonstrate their interest in engaging Ukrainian troops in conflicts in the interests of the United States and NATO around the world.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative challenging Ukrainian statehood and its relations with NATO.

The claim first appeared on the TV channel Zvezda which is financed by the Russian Army. The claim was made by a representative of the so-called "LNR". The source claimed that there are documents that prove his statements, however, no such documents were presented.

Poland uses the lie about WWII to weaken Russia’s position on the international stage

Poland attempts to slander Russia regarding the result of the Second World War, the causes of the Second World War, and uses this lie to weaken Russia’s position on the international stage.

Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently released a statement reacting to false narratives presented by the Russian Federation about the causes and and course of the WW2. So did the Polish Parliament.
