The EU spreads fake news about Russia among its own population and intends to spread it also among Russian speakers. One example of that is “Russian annexation” of Crimea, or unproven “Russian invasion of Ukraine”.

Disproof

The EU does not spread "fake news" about Russia. // UNGA Resolution 68/262, which condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, was supported by 100 United Nations member states. Only 10 states opposed it. bit.ly/1RZGnjo, .

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has 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. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
