The Russophobia virus in Ukraine has appeared not today, not yesterday, and even not the day before yesterday. It was brought to Ukraine artificially a long time ago. It was cultivated, at first slowly, but then more actively.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Ukraine is a Russophobic country with Russophobia sentiments cultivated by the West.
There is no evidence of this. In fact, Ukraine is not a Russophobic country as is often claimed by the Kremlin media. It had to react to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the act of aggression by the Russian armed forces in Donbas. It did not ban the Russian language, as is often claimed by the Kremlin, nor did it ban contact between Ukrainians and Russians.
