Mustafa Dzhemilev is a terrorist who calls for killing Crimeans

Summary

Mustafa Dzhemilev is a terrorist who calls for killing Russians and also for killing Crimeans.

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.

Ukraine is a Nazi dictatorship

All diplomatic ties need to be severed with Ukraine, it is a Nazi dictatorship that needs to be squashed, including with the help of the international community.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis.

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens: http://bit.ly/1Tl9X7W.

There is no elected parliament in Ukraine

Ukrainian MPs are no MPs. They are hooligans, nobody elected them. There is no elected parliament in Ukraine.

Disproof

The EU strongly supported the holding of open, genuine and democratic Presidential and parliamentary elections in May and October 2014: http://www.eeas.europa.eu/archives/docs/statements/docs/2014/140612_01_en.pdf

OSCE: The elections marked an important step in Ukraine’s aspirations to consolidate democratic elections in line with its international commitments. There were many positive points to the process, such as an impartial and efficient Central Election Commission, an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms https://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/132556?download=true

Ukraine is not a country, it is a territory

A country that does not punish those who are guilty is not a state, and those behind the “mass killings in Maidan and Odessa” have not been brought to justice.

Disproof

Repeated disinformation undermining the statehood and thus the territorial integrity of Ukraine. For hundreds of similar cases in the past, see https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=ukraine&disinfo_issue=&date=

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.
