Disinfo: Ukraine politics is irrational and has already buried its European choice

Summary

Ukrainian politics is not just irrational and devoid of logic – and why the Europeans cannot understand it, cannot then stand on one or the other side, and it’s becoming even worse now – [Ukrainian politics] has been arranged generally outside the framework of traditional politics. [—] the main problem of the current Ukraine is that it has buried its European choice in front of the eyes of Europe.

            

Disproof

The EU supports Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty and sees the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as the basis for a sustainable, political solution to the conflict in the east of the country. Since spring 2014, the EU has stepped up its support for economic and political reforms in Ukraine. Ukraine is a priority partner for the European Union, also within the EU's Eastern Partnership.

On 1 September 2017, the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement came into full force, and on 1 October 2017 the additional autonomous trade measures of the EU for Ukraine entered into force.

In addition to political support, the EU has pledged a €12.8 billion support package for the next few years to support the reform process.

The West is dehumanizing Russia, in the same way like the Nazis were dehumanizing the Jews, in order to turn Russia into a symbol of Evil

This might be preparation for the final solution of the Russian question one way or another. If you want to destroy someone, you must turn him into an absolute symbol of Evil. They turned Saddam Hussein into that. Turned Milosevic. Now, like that, they are not dehumanizing Putin. They are dehumanizing Russia. In today’s Western propaganda, we are an absolute Evil, like the Jews were for the Nazis! And it wasn’t an accident that [the West] brought Ukrainian Nazis to power. This is a real preparation for the aggression [against Russia].

Both the EU and NATO have a long record of cooperation with Russia. Despite current difficulties in the relationship with Russia, the EU and its Member States have maintained a clear policy of reaching out to Russian society and youth, mainly through the Erasmus+ student exchange programme and other people to people contacts.

In the USSR, the CIA agents organised a gas leak on a pipeline in the Chelyabinsk region, two passenger trains drove into this cloud, and all the passengers were burned alive

We [in the USSR] got a computer sabotage by the United States of America. It was a gas leak in the gas pipeline, and two trains that drove into this cloud burned completely. Two passenger trains. And it was only in the late 90s that we learned from the memoirs of the CIA agents that it turned out to be a CIA mission. That they inserted computer bugs, which conducted the corresponding sabotage.

 

Disproof

Mixing up two different stories. Thomas C. Reed, a former Air Force secretary, writes in his book "At the Abyss" that a C.I.A. campaign of computer sabotage resulted in a huge explosion in Siberia in 1982, with no casualties known. www.nytimes.com/2004/02/02/opinion/the-farewell-dossier.html, The claim has not been corroborated by intelligence agencies in the United States

The largest railway tragedy in the USSR after WWII occurred on June 4, 1989 as a result of a volumetric explosion of the gas cloud formed by the gas leakage from the pipeline "Siberia - Ural - Povolzhie", when two passenger trains were passing by about 1 km from the place of it. 645 people were killed, more than 600 injured. Officials reported about the explosion power of 250-300 tons of trinitrotoluene. Independent experts believed that it was 12 kilotons of TNT, which is comparable to the nuclear explosion in Hiroshima https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319242996  . According to the official investigators, a gas leak from the pipeline happened due to damage caused by the excavator bucket during its construction in October 1985, four years before the disaster. The leak started 40 minutes before the explosion.
