Summary

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier ensured the implementation of the Nazi coup in Ukraine.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), .

Slovakia, similarly to other countries of Eastern Europe, is under NATO dictatorship. NATO is planning to use its military bases in the region to attack Russia.

Disproof

All NATO members are independent and sovereign countries. All decisions in NATO are taken by consensus, which means that a decision can only be taken if every single Ally accepts it. // As stated by NATO heads of state and government at the Wales Summit in September 2014, "the Alliance does not seek confrontation and poses no threat to Russia. But we cannot and will not compromise on the principles on which our Alliance and security in Europe and North America rest" (bit.ly/21G4hHE), .
