DISINFO: Russophobia has become an official ideology in Ukraine
Russophobia has become an official ideology in Ukraine and even a kind of civic religion.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia in Ukraine.
Ukraine is not an anti-Russian country. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine and Russia established diplomatic relations and signed a number of important treaties. On 31 May 1997, the countries signed a comprehensive Friendship Treaty. As a result, Russia recognised Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity. It also recognised that Crimea belongs to Ukraine. In 2014 Russia violated the treaty and illegally annexed Crimea.
