An official Turkish delegation visited Crimea

A Turkish delegation, including Turkish President Erdoğan’s representative, visited Crimea with the goal of deepening business and political relations.

Disproof

There were no official Turkish government representatives in this so called delegation.This visit was organized by the notorious Russian ultra-nationalist with fascist leanings Alexander Dugin. Further debunking at StopFake.

The Ukrainian people is trained to become Nazis

If you’re not a Nazi, you’re not a Ukrainian. This is cruel experiment on a entire people. And the people does unfortunately not realise or feel this.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Nazi Ukraine. All manifestations of Nazism are banned in Ukraine. The Verkhovna Rada, at its meeting on 9 April 2015, adopted the law “On the Condemnation of the Communist and Nazi totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and the prohibition of propaganda of their symbols”. The document recognises that communist and national socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in Ukraine are criminal and prohibits the public use and propaganda of their symbols. The Nazi totalitarian regime at legislative level is recognised in Ukraine as pursuing a policy of state terror. See a similar case from this week here.
