Former Ukrainian government is responsible for 13,000 deaths in Donbas

Summary of Disinformation

The former government of Ukraine and the so-called new ones, who came to power on the wave of Maidan, took 13,000 lives.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about war in Ukraine.

It is true that, according to the official data, provided by the United Nations, in a five-year war in Eastern Ukraine, more than 13,000 people have been killed. However, the Ukrainian government did not initiate the conflict. The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation". 

There is irrefutable evidence of direct Russian military involvement in eastern Ukraine.
