Disinfo: Fascists and terrorists rule Ukraine, it is totally like Hitler's Nazi Germany

Summary

How can we discuss the territorial integrity of Ukraine, where the power belongs to fascists and terrorists? When the US and EU speak that violations of Ukraine’s territorial integrity are unacceptable, this is the same as to agree that violations of territorial integrity of Hitler’s Germany were unacceptable either. This logic implies that Adolf Hitler had the same right of appeal to international principles of Reich’s territorial integrity as present-time Ukrainian fascists. The thing is that the US needs Ukraine as a battlefield against Russia. Ukraine’s integration with the EU is a camouflage of external governance over it by the US and EU.

Disproof

This is a conspiracy and extreme variation of recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Nazis and fascism in Ukraine, which absolutely groundlessly equals present-time Ukraine with Nazi Germany. It is also consistent with another frequent propagandistic narrative presenting Ukraine as an anti-Russian tool under external control. The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy. The accusation of Nazism is one of the favourite techniques of pro-Kremlin outlets, read our past analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest. Far-right groups enjoyed a very limited presence during the Euromaidan itself and had poor results in the 2014 presidential and parliamentary elections. The "Right Sector" candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections. In the 2019 election cycle, far-right candidates fell short of the 5% minimum guaranteeing entry into parliament. Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world, including the EU. The EU and the US continue to provide support to Ukraine. Ukraine is regarded as an important partner in economic, financial, political, military and other sectors. See more about Europe's support to Ukraine's defence reform here. Read similar cases alleging that after Maidan, Ukraine became ruled by Nazis, Ukrainian authorities introduce Nazi laws to oppress Russian speakers, that Ukraine is a Neo-Nazi state, and that Ukraine is governed from outside.

Liberalism leads to the total loss of national sovereignty and to world government

Liberalism proclaims that the sovereignty of national governments must be totally abolished by surrendering national power to supranational organizations and ultimately to a world government.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that seeks to discredit liberalism claiming that it is obsolete and that liberal societies are totalitarian systems ruled by “globalist elites” and “shadow governments” that rob nations of their sovereignty and identity Liberalism is a political doctrine based on liberty, consent of the governed, individual rights (including civil rights and human rights), and equality before the law. Liberalism does NOT espouse the loss of national sovereignty nor the idea of world government. Read similar cases stating that Western open societies are “liberal” concentration camps and that a weakened global liberal elite stages Russophobic events throughout the world.

Maia Sandu represents the interests of the transnational oligarchy

We always wrote that the leaders of ACUM and V. Plahotniuc have one boss – the US State Department, one ideology – liberalism and globalism, one vector – NATO and the EU, one citizenship – Romanian, one goal – weakening Russia, eliminating the independence of the Republic of Moldova, Moldovan civil nation, history, language of all left forces in Moldova. If Plahotniuc represented the local oligarchy, while being a comprador, Sandu represents the interests of the transnational oligarchy! That’s the whole difference between them.

Disproof

No evidence given. A recurring narrative about US control and an ”existing” US or EU oligarchy, aiming to influence sovereigns states authorities in Eastern Europe. Read similar cases claiming that Maia Sandu is supervised by the CIA and that the EU is an oligarchic entity. Maia Sandu is a former prime minister of Moldova, a leader of Moldovan opposition pro-European party, that was at the power between June 2019 and October 2019. Her government program that involved combating corruption and reforming justice, was supported by the US and EU and also by Russia. There is no evidence confirming that Maia Sandu is part or represents transnational oligarchy. Vladimir Plahotniuc is an ex-leader of the former power party (Democratic Party of Moldova), now pursued for usurpation of power, who left the country in June 2019, after power has changed. He owns many businesses in Moldova, including media.
