Summary

Political power in Ukraine is passing from President Poroshenko to nationalists and radicals.

Disproof

No evidence given. President Poroshenko and the Ukrainian Parliament are the legitimate bodies of power elected by the citizens of Ukraine. The far-right ‘Right Sector’ (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that.

NATO and EU supports neo-Nazi tendencies in Europe, the latest example being the neo-Nazi march in Latvian Riga where people marched on 16 March to commemorate the Latvian legionnaires that fought under the Waffen SS division.

Disproof

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia has informed that: "the 16 March is not an official remembrance day, and people, on their own private initiative, pay their respects to the fallen soldiers. Senior officials and members of the government do not participate in those commemorative gatherings in the centre of Latvia’s capital city." bit.ly/2nZOyEX,

Disproof

The protests were largely peaceful and violence was caused only by a small group of protesters. No evidence for the conspiracy given: bbc.in/2nXpdz4,
