Disinfo: Nazis are still in power in Ukraine


Nazis are still in power in Ukraine.


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.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

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.


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.


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.
