Summary of Disinformation

Cultural genocide and the loss of 1300 primary schools awaits Ukraine.

 

Disproof

The article doesn’t give any evidence or proof or links to the source(s) about the closure or loss of 1300 primary schools in Ukraine.

The author fails to mention that the article refers to art schools in Ukraine. (As there are 1303 art schools in Ukraine in 2019).

The “body” of this article has pictures of the peaceful protest near the presidential administration in Kyiv, held by Ukrainian art schools educators, musicians, outstanding artists and students on the 1st of September. One of the organisers of the protest - Ukrainian singer Taras Topolya mentions that the aim of the event was to draw the new Government's attention to a number of unresolved issues around the reforms to Specialised Music Education. The reforms to art education are not supported by teachers of educational institutions and parents. As the protesters say, certain controversial issues were removed by a decree issued on the 29th of August by the ex-Ministerof Culture of Ukraine, but some issues remain unsolved.
