Ukraine’s legal framework and morality have been destroyed

Ukraine’s legal framework and morality have been destroyed. The government has many sympathisers with neo-Nazi ideas, and “honest neo-Nazis” are fighting to get in. Ukraine is heading towards becoming a Nazi regime.

Disproof

Extremists and provocateurs, to whom the Russian media devote much attention, are indeed one of the threats faced across the country. But they constitute a very small minority. The vast majority of Ukrainians want peace, stability and democracy, as witnessed by the democratic and inclusive Presidential elections held on 25 May 2014. This was reconfirmed by the parliamentary elections of 26 October 2014, where parties devoted to democratic values received the strong majority of votes. The far-right Right Sector (often depicted as "fascists" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that (bit.ly/1Tdu8Qw), .

The credibility of the Dutch commission is questionable

The credibility of the Dutch commission in charge of investigating the MH17 disaster is questionable, as is the plausibility of the evidence of the plane being shot down by a BUK AA-rocket launcher brought to Eastern Ukraine from Russia. Eyewitnesses must have been bribed.

Disproof

The article tries to present one of the "alternative" versions made up by pro-Kremlin media to distort the objective facts pointing to Russian involvement: eepurl.com/chQYq1,
