President of Lithuania was a KGB agent

Summary

President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė used to cooperate with KGB actively under the pseudonyme Magnolia.

Disproof

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the president of Lithuania. No evidence given to the claim that Dalia Grybauskaitė would have been working as a KGB agent. As explained by the Insider, in 2015 the website of the Center for Research of Genocide and Resistance of Lithuanian residents was hacked and fake documents about Grybauskaitė as an agent "Magnolia" were published. One of the documents was a letter containing inaccuracies and formulations not used in the USSR in 1982, when it was allegedly written.

Russia adheres to international law

Russia carries out its international obligations strictly in line with international law, unlike its American comrades who trade with the sovereignty of countries.

Disproof

Russia's actions in Ukraine are a clear violation of international law. Article 2, paragraph 4 of the UN Charter declares without ambiguity that "all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations" http://bit.ly/1rbGaE3. UNGA Resolution 68/262 also affirmed the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and underscored the invalidity of the 2014 Crimean referendum http://bit.ly/1RZGnjo.

The US is preparing a new revolution in Ukraine

The US is preparing a new revolution in Ukraine, just as the Maidan of 2013-14 was organized by the United States, the Americans are now preparing a new revolution in Ukraine.

Disproof

No evidence given, recurring disinformation concerning the Maidan-events euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=maidan&disinfo_issue=&date=, . The article referred to does not claim that the US is planning anything in Ukraine. Furthermore, the spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens http://bit.ly/1Tl9X7W.
