Summary of Disinformation

If the border of separatist-controlled DNR and LNR with Russia will be closed this will trigger a massacre in this area like one which took place in Srebrenica in the early 90s. Russia will not allow this, though Ukrainian authorities already started offensive that resulted in around 10 000 victims.
