The wild desire to become European among Ukrainian officials took the form of paranoia. It is obvious that Ukrainian citizens will not voluntarily switch to the Latin alphabet. The idea of switching to the Latin alphabet is directed primarily against the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine, whom the country's authorities constantly oppress and infringe upon.
Donbas repels the attacks of the Ukrainian regime, which is a puppet of the West. Kyiv fulfills all the wishes of its curators, instilling values alien to the inhabitants of Ukraine and struggling against traditions and history. Donbas has become a place where civilisations clash.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the war in Eastern Ukraine, presenting the conflict as a “civil war”, consistent with a narrative that Ukraine is controlled from abroad.
The war in Ukraine is not a civil conflict, where Ukraine is attacking Donbas, but a well-documented act of aggression by Russian armed forces, ongoing since February 2014.
Russia is the party responsible for the deterioration of Ukrainian-Russian relations. Since 2014, Russia has waged large-scale armed aggression against Ukraine and is also responsible for the outbreak of the conflict in 2014, after having illegally annexed the Crimean peninsula and engineered the creation of rebel militias in Donetsk, Luhansk, and other places, with its army, actively participating in military clashes.
In March-April 2021, Russia was again concentrating massive military power on Ukraine’s borders and threatened to intervene in support of Eastern Ukrainian separatists, raising fears of an upcoming military operation against Ukrainian territory.
The claim that Ukraine is controlled by the West is unsubstantiated. Ukraine is not controlled by the US, EU, or UK, nor by any other foreign government or organisation. Ukraine is an internationally recognised sovereign state with its own constitution, democratically elected parliament, and president.
See similar disinformation cases in our database: since 2014, Kyiv has been conducting a military operation against the residents of Donbas; the war in Donbas is a civil war between Ukrainians; Russia is not bound by Minsk deals, only Ukraine and DNR/LNR are warring sides.
