Europe is deliberately destroying Ukraine, just as they destroyed the Baltics

Summary of Disinformation

Europe wants to replace Ukraine’s population with migrants from Africa and the Middle East. All young and fertile Ukrainians will move to Europe and lose their identity. Europe is deliberately destroying Ukraine, turning the country into a deserted ruin, just as they already did with the Baltics.


Conspiracy theory, with no evidence.

In 2004 - 2013 the GDP per capita in the Baltic countries increased by an average 46% (p. 191).

In 2017, according to World Bank data, GDP per capita (PPP) in each of the Baltic countries is lower than on average in the EU, but higher than in the Russian Federation. See more here.

Ukraine is a priority partner for the European Union, also within the EU's Eastern Partnership. In addition to political support, the EU has pledged a €13.8 billion support package for the next few years to support the reform process. In addition, the EU is reinforcing its position as Ukraine's number one trading partner. Exports from Ukraine to the EU increased by 27% and Ukrainian imports from the EU by about 22% while overall trade increased by 24% in 2017. EU imports from Ukraine continue to increase and estimates predict a 5% increase in 2018.
