Military personnel of EU member states were sent to Ukraine much earlier. Both in the form of instructors, special services, and mercenaries. The deployment of military personnel began much earlier than in 2022.
The Embassy of Russia in Mexico questioned the use of Ukrainian Nazi slogan in an op-ed published by the Mexican newspaper ‘Milenio’, titled ‘Slava Ukraini!’. The Embassy recalled that this slogan has been used in many crimes committed by ultranationalist Ukrainians.
This disinformation story is an attempt to promote a long-term pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about ‘Nazi Ukraine’, part of a wider campaign aiming to justify Russia’s unprovoked aggression against its peaceful neighbour.
Contrary to what this disinformation story claims, ‘Slava Ukraini!’ is not a “Nazi slogan” but a Ukrainian national salute created more than one century ago. It only means ‘Glory to Ukraine!’ and is frequently used by Ukrainian leaders and citizens in public events and demonstrations.
See other examples of similar disinformation narratives, such as claims that Russia fights against Ukrainian neo-Nazis guilty of ethnic cleansing, that the special military operation aims to end the Nazi regime in Kyiv, that Zelenskyy uses the same Nazi symbols as Hitler, or that the West supported neo-Nazis in Ukraine, using them to weaken Russia.
