The situation in Ukraine is institutionalised terrorism and poses a threat to the nation and the world

Summary

The current situation in Ukraine is institutionalised terrorism that poses a threat to the nation and the world. The EuroMaidan-protests in Ukraine led to a coup supported by the US and the EU.The situation today is a shame, the “heroes” of today’s Ukraine are pogrom makers, anti-Semites and all sorts of radicals.

Disproof

Recurring Russian narrative about an US-and EU backed coup d'etat in Ukraine.

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of numerous parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.

There were democratic Presidential elections held on 25 May 2014 in Ukraine. The OSCE characterised the elections as showing the "clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms." According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook "increasing attempts to derail the process." This fact was reconfirmed by the parliamentary elections of 26 October 2014. The OSCE characterised the vote as "an amply contested election that offered votes real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms".

The EU is dependent on US-foreign policy

The EU is dependent on US-foreign policy and it is interested in Venezuela because of future profits from its rich oil resources.

Disproof

The EU is not "dependent" on the United States of America in terms of foreign policy making and therefore it is a conspiracy theory presented without any evidence. It is also a recurring pro-Kremlin disinfo narrative about US controlling other countries. Previous examples include US controlling German media and it's foreign policy and keeping Britain under it's thumb.

In the declaration on behalf of the EU on the situation in Venezuela the High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini reiterated that the last presidential elections in Venezuela were neither free, fair, nor credible, lacking democratic legitimacy. The EU has called for the urgent holding of free, transparent and credible presidential elections in Venezuela.

German media organises a “real witch-hunt” against Russian media in Germany

The German media’s smear campaign against Russian media has intensified. German media, including state funded institutions, are attempting to discredit Russian media through disinformation and pressure. Bild, Deutsche Welle, t-online.de are part of an anti-Russian campaign.

Disproof

The German government has rejected accusations against the German media. Government spokesman Steffen Seibert reacted to accusations that had spoken of a state campaign against Russian foreign media in Germany. "Anyone who makes such absurd allegations in the world has little knowledge of Germany and little idea of freedom of the press," said government spokesman Seibert.

The chief editor of t-online Florian Harms, debunked the accusations: "It goes without saying that we are neither state-controlled nor do we 'persecute' Russian media. We report independently and thoroughly but critically on the influence of the Russian media and the Russian state in Germany. It's obvious that some people in Russia don't like this."

West plans Maidan in Belarus with the help of Ukrainian fighters

The West intends to organize a Maidan in Belarus with the help of Ukrainian fighters and weapons. President Lukashenko wants to improve relations with the West by resolving the conflict in Ukraine. However, the West is disorganised and does not have a common position over Ukraine, which makes conflict resolution impossible.

Belarusian authorities understand that Ukrainian state is in crisis, may soon collapse and be replaced by oligarchic and criminal entities.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in the EU neighbourhood, including in Belarus. Examples of earlier disinformation cases are here and here.

The disinformation message also involves pro-Kremlin narrative about the upcoming disintegration of Ukraine.
