Disinfo: EU may solve Ukrainian issue without Ukraine

Summary

EU is ready to solve the issue of Donbas and make compromises with Russia without Ukraine. That’s because of the suspicious political events in Ukraine, like Mikheil Saakashvili raiding Ukraine, and because Ukraine doesn’t do anything to reach peace in Donbas.

Ukraine’s policy openly concentrates on involving Russia to the civil conflict.

Disproof

No evidence given. Ukraine is a regular participant of the Minsk negotiations and one of the four members (Ukraine, Russia, France, Germany) of the Normandy contact group tasked with resolving the situation in the East of Ukraine.

The war in Ukraine is not a civil war. The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
