Summary

NATO wants to encircle Russia and the Alliance is behind the outbreak of war between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Disproof

Groundless conspiracy theory. This claim also ignores the facts of geography: Russia's land border is just over 20,000 kilometres long. Of that, 1,215 kilometres, or less than one-sixteenth, face current NATO members (bit.ly/21G4hHE), .

Ukraine is to pay 57,317.50 pounds sterling to former president Viktor Yanukovych and his two sons because of the negligence of Ukrainian Justice Ministry personnel who were forced to withdraw Ukraine’s law suit against Yanukovych. As a result of this negligence the European court ordered Ukraine to “offset the costs incurred by the plaintiffs as a result of Ukraine filing a law suit against them.”

Disproof

Ukraine’s Justice Ministry published a rebuttal of Lukash’s claim, calling it a figment of her imagination. According to the Justice Ministry, there is no decision by the European Court ordering any compensation to Yanukovych as there is no ruling against Ukraine and in favor of Yanukovych and Lukash’s claim is aimed at whitewashing Yanukovych’s image and blackening that of Ukraine (bit.ly/1RYoAsJ), .
