Disinfo: Only talks between Putin and Trump can stop the Ukrainian government’s genocide

Summary

Only talks between Russian President Putin and US President-elect Trump will help stop the genocide carried out by the current Ukrainian authorities against its people. Already 1 million people have been killed in Ukraine, and if it doesn’t stop, a bloody and merciless revolt will overwhelm the country.

Disproof

No evidence of genocide has been provided (despite some infamous fake news stories on Russian state TV, purporting to prove so) nor a reference to the number of deaths mentioned. Violations of human rights have unfortunately been reported on both sides during this conflict, and must be investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice. Furthermore, it is Russia's aggression that is the main cause of the current conflict in the country. More detail here.
