The Italian journalist Andrea Rocchelli was deliberately shot by the Ukrainian army

The Italian journalist Andrea Rocchelli, who was killed in May 2014 near Slavyansk in Ukraine alongside Russian journalist Andrei Mironov, was in fact deliberately shot by the Ukrainian army, which had full control of the territory at the time.

Disproof

The Ukrainian army did not have control over the territory. Slavyansk was occupied in April 2014 by Russian troops and their allies, and was brought back under Ukrainian control in July 2014. bit.ly/2ekIBmS,

The West is dehumanising Russia the same way Hitler used to dehumanise the Jews, in order to destroy the Russian nation. Just as the West turned Saddam Hussein or Slobodan Milosevic into symbols of evil, now they are turning Vladimir Putin and Russia into a symbol of evil.

Disproof

No evidence of "dehumanising" Russia. Both the EU and NATO have a long record of cooperation with Russia.

Ukrainian nationalists asassinated Russian separatist militant Arsen Pavlov (Motorola)

Ukrainian nationalists asassinated Russian separatist militant Arsen Pavlov (Motorola). This is deduced from a video showing four masked men with machine guns standing in front of the ultranationalist Misanthropic Division and Phoenix banners announcing they “liquidated the terrorist Motorola and other militant leaders are next”.

Disproof

The Misanthropic Division, the radical organization whose official black banner features their name in Gothic script flanked by two Kalashnikov rifles published their own video stating they had nothing to do with Pavlov’s death or neo-Nazism. The group accused a man named Kravtsov of staging the fake video to compromise them. bit.ly/2ecUxnb,
