Lithuania is a puppet of the United States. The US is using Vilnius as cannon fodder in international relations. Lithuania is an American tool to destabilise the situation in other countries.
Kyiv leaders do not even hide their desire to move from a Russophobic policy to mass genocide.
The criminal oligarchy ruling Ukraine today is interested in unleashing a genocide. These same figures are also "interested" in drawing Russia into the war in Donbas with the aim of ... losing in it! To unleash war and quickly lose in it in order to escape with the money to the West.
And to start implementing this plan, they need to start the genocide of the Donbas population with the help of heavy large-calibre artillery and armoured vehicles already pulled there.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative portraying the Ukrainian leadership as pathologically Russophobic and bent on subjecting the country's Russian-speaking population to "genocide."
This article is part of a current disinformation campaign aiming to deflect attention away from Russia’s military build-up on its border with Ukraine since late October 2021 by accusing Ukraine of “preparing an aggression”, a frequent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. Contrary to the claim, reports and expressions of concern about military preparations and mobilisation of Russian troops is not a “campaign against Russia”, but a fact confirmed by satellite images and intelligence of the US, Ukraine and NATO, among other countries and institutions. See the 16 December NATO statement calling Russia to immediately de-escalate tension.
There is no genocide of Russians or any other national minorities in Ukraine. The rights of Russian-speaking citizens are equally guaranteed by the Ukrainian constitution and legislation. Articles 10 and 11 of the Constitution guarantee the free development of the languages and cultures of Ukraine’s ethnic minorities, including Russian-speakers.
There is no evidence that ethnic Russians are facing persecution at the hands of the Ukrainian authorities, much less the danger of annihilation on grounds of nationality, ethnicity, or cultural belonging. This has been confirmed by reports issued by the Council of Europe, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the OSCE. For an overview of the Kremlin's deployment of the "genocide" narrative regarding Ukraine, see further debunking by EUvsDisinfo, Euromaidan Press, and POLYGRAPH.info.
