In 2014, the West provoked anti-government protests of Ukrainians to distract the world from the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Disproof

No evidence given. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of a large part of the Ukrainian society to the former President Yanukovych’s departure from the Association Agreement with the EU in November 2013.

The name of ‘Ukraine’ is not historically correct for the country, the historical name is ‘Malorossiya’ and ‘Novorossiya’.

Disproof

This claim is contrary to historical documents. Since the 16-18 centuries, the word of ‘Ukraine’ was in use among both the Moscovites and the Europeans, for instance in the book ‘Déscription de l’Ukraine’ by Guillaume le Vasseur de Beauplan published in 1648 or on the well-known map by the Black Sea, composed by Georg Matthäus Seutter in 1740.bit.ly/2lCc8d2,
