Summary

Europeans are already fighting not only against Russia and Russian influence, but also against Russians. The Data Science Challenge where a Russian was denied prize-money is a proof of that.

Disproof

Vladimir Iglovikov was denied money because of the rules of the competition: "No payment shall be made (whether directly or via a third party/country) to an individual who is a national and/or resident of, or located in, any country with a score of 37 or less according to Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index 2014" (Russia had a score of 27: bit.ly/1AgRivL), .

Ukrainian historian Volodymyr Viatrovich called on Ukrainians to sever all ties with their Russian relatives.

Disproof

Everything that maintains a connection between our countries (economy, language, history, culture, traditions and even family ties) will be used against us": bit.ly/2rPiLeX,

Leaked internal documents from the Ukrainian Secret Service (SBU) show that SBU tried to cover up the MH17 tragedy and destroyed documents proving that Ukraine was responsible for the crash.

Disproof

The alleged documents were not reported by any credible media; they contain linguistic errors; they call the so-called Donetsk people's republic a "state" – whereas Ukrainian authorities use for it the term "terrorist organisation"; and they are addressed to a department that was disbanded in 2005. The whole process of planting the story, echoing it and multiplying it by state-owned media shows typical signs of a pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign: bit.ly/2rG9YtX,

Petro Poroshenko plans to kill several million people in Donbas

Petro Poroshenko plans to kill several million people in Donbas. Angela Merkel is his accomplice, because she is silent about this plan.

Disproof

There is no such "plan" - which is also the most probable reason why Angela Merkel is silent about it.
