Nazis are still in power in Ukraine

Summary

Nazis are still in power in Ukraine.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Nazi Ukraine. 

All manifestations of Nazism are banned in Ukraine. The Verkhovna Rada, at its meeting on 9 April 2015, adopted the law “On the Condemnation of the Communist and Nazi totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and the prohibition of propaganda of their symbols”. The document recognises that communist and national socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in Ukraine are criminal and prohibits the public use and propaganda of their symbols. The Nazi totalitarian regime at legislative level is recognised in Ukraine as pursuing a policy of state terror. See a similar case from this week here.

2019 parliamentary elections are the last ones in Ukraine

These parliamentary elections were the last in Ukraine. There will be no elections in 2024. There will be no country called Ukraine. The events in the Middle East will make everyone forget what Ukraine is. We are talking about the WW3. Russia will be forced to let the refugees through to Ukraine, Europe and Turkey will do the same. The refugees will flood Ukraine, and it is going to be the end of the country.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no substance or evidence.

Parliamentary elections in Ukraine were not representative, free nor fair

Russia should not recognize the parliamentary elections in Ukraine, because there were no Russian observers, no PACE observers. There were clear violations in the electoral campaign. The elections cannot be called representative, free nor fair.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative, seeking to undermine legitimacy of elections in Ukraine. See previous case: Ukrainian elections have to be recognized as illegitimate.

According to the preliminary statement of the OSCE, Ukraine’s early parliamentary elections were efficiently run and respected fundamental freedoms.
