Disproof

Repeated disinformation about Crimean Tatars (https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=crimean+tatars&disinfo_issue=&date=) and their leader, a former Soviet dissident and human rights advocate Mustafa Dzhemilev (https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=dzhemilev&disinfo_issue=&date=). There is no evidence that Mustafa Dzhemilev would call for killing Russians or Ukrainians in Crimea.

Expulsion of GRU officers from the Netherlands is a staged performance and a provocation

The April expulsion of four alleged GRU officers from the Netherlands is “a staged performance”, “incredible stupidity” and “pure provocation” and it is linked to the release by Russia of new information about the Buk missile that hit the MH17 flight.

Disproof

Dutch officials gave unprecedented details as they outlined the alleged Russian operation at a joint Dutch-UK government news conference in The Hague. The head of Dutch counterintelligence, Maj. Gen. Onno Eichelsheim, named the four alleged Russian officers as Aleksei Morenets, Evgenii Serebriakov, Oleg Sotnikov and Alexey Minin. The four alleged agents planned to travel next to an OPCW-accredited Swiss laboratory in Spiez, Bern, that does research into chemical weapons, Eichelsheim said. They had bought train tickets for April 17 from the Dutch city of Utrecht to Switzerland, he said, but did not get there because their operation was disrupted.Read more: https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/04/europe/netherlands-russia-gru-intl/index.html

Ukrainian borders and language are artificial. Ukrainian authorities plan to punish any use of non-Ukrainian language e.g. at home, in transport, at school.

Disproof

Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc. UNGA Resolution 68/262 also affirmed the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders: http://bit.ly/1RZGnjo. The new law on language is still only in the phase of a draft. Yet, it specifically says that every citizen is free to choose any language in private encounters. Read more about the law here.
