Disinfo: The West is turning Ukraine into a nuclear waste burial


The West is building nuclear waste burial in Chernobyl. Now the nuclear waste from the whole world will come to Ukraine and will poison its population since the European countries don’t want to receive this dangerous waste.


Ukraine is building a nuclear waste burial in order to stop sending its nuclear waste for conservation in Russia where such a waste burial exists for a long time www.segodnya.ua/economics/enews/ukraina-zaplatila-rossii-2-mlrd-dollarov-za-hranenie-yadernyh-othodov-1071083.html, .

Washington has embarked on a secret arms race due to a “strategic threat” posed by Moscow and Beijing

The US is overwhelmed by Russia’s military capabilities so they began mobilizing forces to catch up. The US units commander in Europe, General Ben Hodges, acknowledged the recent steps taken by Russia in the Crimea, Donbass and Syria to be completely unexpected.


No evidence given for the claims of an arms race. General Ben Hodges has expressed his concerns that the Russian military exercise Zapad 2017 was surprisingly large and fast. The United States and Russia are informing each other about what exercises will take place and how many soldiers will participate in them, but Russia is lacking in transparency on these issues and, as a rule, exercises are more extensive than the Russians claim. The US is worried because, as part of the Zapad 2017, the Russians practiced tactics that "were later used in Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014, its support for separatists in eastern Ukraine and its intervention in Syria." For this reason, they mobilize (not increase) military forces, especially in the Baltics, which lies on the border with Russia.

Ground anti-missiles at Fort Greely (Alaska State) are targeted against Russian and Chinese rockets

The US ground missile defence in Alaska is aimed at Russian and Chinese rockets. Not only does the US missile defence system make it harder for rockets to fly, but it can also shoot them down.


According to the Missile Defence Agency, the anti-missile defence, the defence is directed against North Korea and Iran. "US military ballistic missile defence policies have sought to protect the homeland against a long-range missile strike from states such as Iran and North Korea, but not major nuclear powers Russia and China." www.armscontrol.org/factsheets/usmissiledefense,

American peacekeepers will start a genocide in Donbas

If the US will send 20 000 peacekeepers to the East of Ukraine this will surely worsen the situation. The US will not follow international law and this will surely result in genocide of the local population.


No evidence given. If a peacekeeping mission would be deployed in the East of Ukraine it would consist of an international contingent under UN mandate. There are no indications that such a mission would result in a genocide. www.rferl.org/a/canada-making-diplomatic-push-ukraine-un-peacekeeping-plan/28845877.html, , www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-to-seek-russian-approval-for-peacekeepers-in-eastern-ukraine-1510258304, . The term genocide is regularly used in pro-Kremlin disinformation to inspire fear, without having any connection with the actual act of genocide euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=genocide&disinfo_issue=&date=, .
