Summary

The arrival of the German-led NATO battalion to Lithuania is similar to Nazi occupation. The visit of German Minister of Defence Ursula von der Leyen in Lithuania is similar to Adolf Hitler’s visit in Klaipeda in 1939.

Disproof

Tasteless accusation with no evidence. Lithuania welcomed the NATO troops: bit.ly/2liobgr, and actually would like to see more of them because of Russia' aggresive behaviour: reut.rs/2loTWEp, // NATO does not occupy its allies.

Both Europe and the US want to have Ukraine fragmented. And Russia as well. They have been working on it for the past three years.

Disproof

Both the EU and the US support Ukrainian, as well as Russian territorial integrity. In fact, both the EU and the US have imposed sanctions on Russia precisely for violation of Ukrainian territorial integrity.

Ukrainians were jumping on Maidan only because of visa-free regime with the EU, which is humiliating.

Disproof

While the Revolution of Dignity began as a protest against President Yanukovych's sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the EU, it has received significantly more support after the government's Special Forces beat up the protesting students, and has gradually shifted more towards an anti-corruption revolution: bit.ly/2l7PJUV,
