It was Russia that provoked a war in Ukraine. For further debunking see euvsdisinfo.eu/report/russian-spring-civil-war-was-unleashed-in-east-of-ukraine-by-little-nazis-in-kyiv-after-a-coup/

The International Criminal Court believes that “there exists a sensible or reasonable justification for a belief that a crime falling within the jurisdiction of the Court ‘has been or is being committed’” within the Crimean and Donbas territories of Ukraine. https://www.forbes.com/sites/paulroderickgregory/2016/11/20/international-criminal-court-russias-invasion-of-ukraine-is-a-crime-not-a-civil-war/#705ee9a27ddb

Even Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted Russia's military presence in Ukraine in 2015. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/dec/17/vladimir-putin-admits-russian-military-presence-ukraine

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis.

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 insignificance of the "Right Sector" is evident from the election results – their candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections, and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections.

Mustafa Dzhemilev is a terrorist who calls for killing Russians and also for killing Crimeans.

Disproof

Repeated disinformation about Crimean Tatars (https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=crimean+tatars&disinfo_issue=&date=) and their leader, a former Soviet dissident and human rights advocate Mustafa Dzhemilev (https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=dzhemilev&disinfo_issue=&date=). There is no evidence that Mustafa Dzhemilev would call for killing Russians or Ukrainians in Crimea.

Ukraine is a Nazi dictatorship

All diplomatic ties need to be severed with Ukraine, it is a Nazi dictatorship that needs to be squashed, including with the help of the international community.

There is no elected parliament in Ukraine

Ukrainian MPs are no MPs. They are hooligans, nobody elected them. There is no elected parliament in Ukraine.

Disproof

The EU strongly supported the holding of open, genuine and democratic Presidential and parliamentary elections in May and October 2014: http://www.eeas.europa.eu/archives/docs/statements/docs/2014/140612_01_en.pdf

OSCE: The elections marked an important step in Ukraine’s aspirations to consolidate democratic elections in line with its international commitments. There were many positive points to the process, such as an impartial and efficient Central Election Commission, an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms https://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/132556?download=true
