Disinfo: Europe will divide Ukraine with Russia

Summary

Ukraine's so-called "Western partners" are not partners at all, but rather enemies. They look at Ukraine with a very serious appetite. No one in Poland forgets that Lviv is a Polish city. Moreover, they constantly remind about this and will be able to reach an agreement with Russia. If the West comes to a decision where to draw the border in Ukraine, then this border will be drawn and Ukraine will disappear.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's disintegration and imminent collapse.

Ukraine's foreign partners adhere to international law and respect Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty. They support Ukraine's position regarding Crimea and the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. No neighbouring state, except the Russian Federation, has tried to violate Ukraine's territorial integrity.

See similar disinformation cases in our database: the coup has driven Ukraine to an inevitable failure of the state; Ukraine must give up on some of its territories; Ukraine can soon collapse and lose East and South of the country granted by Lenin in 1918; Ukraine will disintegrate.

AstraZeneca kills

AstraZeneca kills: a European country refused it.

Disproof

Disinformation that advances pro-Kremlin propaganda against the COVID-19 vaccines produced in the USA and Europe. The claim appeared in the title wrongly creating an impression that AstraZeneca Vaccine is designed to cause deaths.

It is true that in Austria a 49-year old woman died as a result of multiple thromboses and a 35-year-old was also hospitalised for a pulmonary embolism after receiving a vaccine from the same batch. However, the Federal Office for Safety in Health Care of Austria said that there is no evidence of a causal relationship with vaccination.

Instead of vaccine Zelensky might have been jabbed with vitamins

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has publicly got vaccinated with the Indian vaccine, but some have claimed that he was injected with vitamins. The vaccination in public has turned into a show. Zelensky got vaccinated in Donbass, and immediately after the injection, shelling from the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the war zone has sharply increased.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denigrating Ukraine and its president Volodymyr Zelensky.

There is no evidence to claim that the Ukrainian president received a dose of vitamins instead of vaccine. President Zelenskyy tweeted on 2 March 2021 that he was inoculated with Indian vaccine Covishield. A batch of 500,000 doses arrived in Ukraine on February 23 2021.

Teenagers in Estonia are infected by Russophobic alarmism

More and more teenagers in Estonia are ready to defend their country. This is showing that Russophobia in Estonia is widespread. Official Tallinn permanently scares citizens by “threat from East”.

The myth about “threat from East” is the idee fix of the Estonian government. The biggest part of society is infected by Russophobic alarmism.

Disproof

A recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Estonia is Russophobic.

The starting point of the disinformation narrative was data from the Public Opinion and National Defence Survey, which was published by the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Estonia. The Survey showed that readiness among young people of upper secondary school age to participate in defence activities has increased to 63 per cent, while a year ago it was only 54 per cent.
