Summary

The annexation of Crimea was necessary in order to prevent Ukraine´s junta from expulsion or genocide of civilian Russian-speaking population. In addition, the government in Ukraine is connected to the neo-Nazis who commit crimes against humanity.

Disproof

No evidence given for this often repeated and many times debunked disinformation on Ukraine. The annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation took place in February-March 2014, almost two months before the pro-Russian protests in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts escalated into an armed separatist insurgency bbc.in/1FfegIv, . // There were no confirmed reports prior to Russian intervention of any ethnic Russians being threatened in Ukraine. No evidence of genocide has been provided. The far-right Right Sector (often depicted as "fascists" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far from 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/2dFFEdi,

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) is the Swedish Armed Forces’ informal press department and their report about Russian influence operations in Sweden should be taken with a grain of salt.

Disproof
