Protests of the Saakashvili’s supporters confirm the fact that there is a civil war in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

And these events [protests of the Saakashvili’s supporters in Kyiv], when everyone suddenly became disillusioned with all politicians, this is an indicator that there is no external aggression in Ukraine, but a real civil war. Dirty and disgusting, with a bunch of corrupt officials, cashing in on this war. The authorities justify all their shortcomings by the fact that they have been allegedly attacked.

Disproof

No evidence of civil war in Ukraine, which is suffering an aggression of Russia that has annexed the Crimea and waged an armed conflict in Donbas. As for the street protests in democratic regimes, they indicate not a civil war, but a political activity of the voters. During the demonstration on October 17 in Kyiv, protesters called for Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to enact anticorruption reforms or step down at a rally organized by Mikheil Saakashvili and other opposition leaders.
