It was Russia that provoked a war in Ukraine, and it is not a civil war. For further debunking see euvsdisinfo.eu/report/russian-spring-civil-war-was-unleashed-in-east-of-ukraine-by-little-nazis-in-kyiv-after-a-coup/

No evidence of any kind of threat of civil war in Latvia.

Background on Ukraine:euvsdisinfo.eu/report/crimea-is-a-result-of-the-ban-on-the-russian-language/,

Prior to the May 2014 Presidential elections, acting President Turchynov refused to sign legislation repealing the language law of 2012, which allows the use of the Russian language for official purposes at regional level.

Human rights missions that travelled to Ukraine in 2014 did not find evidence that the Russian minority would have been in danger:

1. The Advisory Committee’s Ad hoc Report on the situation of national minorities in Ukraine, adopted on 1 April 2014, Council of Europe;

2. Report on the human rights situation in Ukraine, Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, 15 June 2014;

3. Statement by the OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities on her Recent Visit to Ukraine, 4 April 2014

Europe becoming Nazi again

Nazism is gradually coming back to Europe: “Nothing happened in Europe. It’s slowly going back to what it was, the Europe that generated Nazism and lived with Nazism, and the small hitch that happened after Nazi Germany was defeated is about to end.”

Disproof

There is no connection between Petrov, Boshirov and Skripal’s poisoning

UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May was “lying and distorting” facts at the UN General Assembly, while stating that Russia was guilty of Sergey Skripal’s poisoning. There is no proven connection between Petrov, Boshirov and Skripal’s poisoning. This is a political provocation.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Skripals' poisoning.

Two Novichok suspects claimed they were visiting Salisbury Cathedral but, according to the street cameras, they went two miles along the wrong route that is opposite to this place and leads to the house of Skripal.

The West persecutes the Russian Orthodox Church and prohibits Russian language

The West is promoting Russophobia, which is a type of racism. It regards Russia as a criminal regime (the West invented the situation in Salisbury), persecutes the Russian Orthodox Church (it wants to schism of the Orthodox Church) and prohibits the Russian language.

Disproof

No evidence given.

Neither the EU or US have ever called Russia a criminal regime as well as never prohibited Russian language anywhere or persecuted the Russian Orthodox Church.
