Helsinki supports Ukraine in its anti-Russian propaganda

Summary of Disinformation
Helsinki supports Ukraine in its anti-Russian propaganda.
Finland and Ukraine agreed that Helsinki will provide financial assistance to Ukrainian schools in the amount of about 6 million euros over four years. With the funds provided, Ukrainian teachers will be able to upgrade their skills in teaching “modern children”.
After the coup in Kiev in 2013-2014, many Western countries supported the illegal Ukrainian government. Then, following the annexation of the Crimea to Russia, the West introduced a whole package of anti-Russian sanctions and actually declared Russia an “occupying country”.

Playing into the hands of Kiev, the Western “partners” turn a blind eye to the flagrant violations of the Minsk agreements by Ukraine and do not really influence the calling of the Ukrainian authorities to account.

In fact, the money referred to is to support Ukraine's education. Finland's development cooperation allocated to Ukraine will be EUR 15 million in 2018–2021. The support will be channelled to projects in the education and energy sectors. formin.finland.fi/public/default.aspx?contentid=372554&contentlan=2&culture=en-US.
