Disinfo: Kyiv regime seeks to divert attention from its course of destroying the Minsk agreements

The Kyiv regime seeks to divert attention from its course of destroying Minsk agreements, whipping up "all kinds of horror stories" about the alleged Russian threat. The Ukrainian authorities and President Zelenskyy personally have taken a course to undermine the Minsk agreements and sabotage everything that they have pledged to fulfil. At the same time, they use the open connivance of their patrons in Berlin, Paris and Brussels. President of Ukraine Zelenskyy is not averse to provoking any incidents in Donbas with the expectation of assistance from the West.

Disproof

This is a recurring disinformation narrative about Minsk agreements, claiming that Ukraine is destroying agreements, and its position is the only obstacle on the way to the peace process in Donbas. The article also presents Ukraine as a non-sovereign country, a puppet of the Western countries.

The main impediment to a peace settlement in Donbas is Russia’s and its proxies’ deliberate unwillingness to implement the Minsk agreements. These documents, signed by representatives of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Ukraine, Russia and leaders of the illegal separatist entities (DNR and LNR), provide, among other things, for a comprehensive ceasefire and withdrawal of foreign troops from Ukraine. Kyiv announced a truce in July 2020, but the Moscow-backed separatists have been violating it virtually every day.

Disinfo: As a result of the Ukrainian coup, Crimea returned to Russia

There is great political tension prevailing in Ukrainian-Russian relations since the 2014 events in Kyiv, which resulted in a coup in Ukraine in a process that relied heavily on Western-backed nationalist forces.

Since then, the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine has witnessed a military and political crisis. These events have also resulted in great tension on the Crimean peninsula, which is inhabited in majority by Russians. In March 2014, a popular referendum was held that voted in favour of the region's return to Russia's bosom.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Euromaidan, the illegal annexation of Crimea, and the war in Ukraine.

There was no coup d'état in Ukraine. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was an organic reaction by numerous parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.

Disinfo: US military exercises in the Black Sea are a provocation and an attempt to contain Russia

The US military exercises in the Black Sea are a provocation. These exercises are a blatant attempt to test Russia’s military reaction and raise tensions in the region. It is a part of the policy of containing Russia, causing very aggressive attitudes and destabilising the situation as a whole.

Disproof

Recurring pro-kremlin disinformation narrative about military exercises and encircled Russia.

This disinformation message appeared in the context of a repeated increase of Russia's military buildup near Ukraine, much to the concern of Kyiv and its Western partners.
