Disinfo: 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.


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.


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.

The population of Ukraine declines rapidly due to lack of money and health care reform

The health situation in Ukraine is “evidently totally out of control”. This lack of vaccines is on an “African” scale, with Ukraine also short of polio and meningitis vaccines. The population is rapidly declining because of the failed health care reform and lack of money.


No evidence given, no credible reports supporting the population in Ukraine rapidly declining because of the health care reform.
