Poroshenko may unleash a war on Russia

Summary of Disinformation

From the act of provocation in the Kerch Strait Poroshenko has moved on to phase two of his plan to escalate pre-war tensions on the Russian border. In fear of losing the March 2019 presidential election Poroshenko has come up with the idea of postponing the polls, so may now resort to unleashing a war on Russia in order to achieve that goal.

Disproof

No evidence given of any preparations by Ukraine to unleash a war on Russia. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the war in Ukraine.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government.
