The collapse of Ukraine would be a chance for a “Greater Romania”

Summary

Romanian, Polish and Hungarian irredentists pin their hopes on the imminent collapse of Ukraine and its subsequent defragmentation, which will allow them to snatch off a piece of “Ukrainian pie”.

The preservation of Ukraine in its Soviet and post-Soviet borders is not fundamental for the United States and its satellites. Ukraine, which has lost its sovereignty and political subjectivity, will be easily sacrificed for current political expediency, as has already happened to the countries of the “third world” more than once.

Bessarabia, formerly owned by Russia, was occupied in 1918 by Romanian troops. The Romanian expansion, unlike the Hungarian one, is of a creeping type – without any special statements and scandals.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about Romania, with previous record of questioning Moldova's and Ukraine's integrity.

Neither Romania, Poland nor Hungary claim any territory of Ukraine.

In early 1918, the National Council of Bessarabia proclaimed a union with the Kingdom of Romania.

No proof of Russian involvement in US elections, Salisbury poisoning

UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt recently stated that that Russia runs a global campaign of cyber warfare to target foreign governments. It is only the latest in a long string of unsubstantiated allegations which Western officials have made against Moscow.

These include the Kremlin’s supposed election interference in the US and elsewhere, as well as a leading role in the Skripal poisoning. But now this “Russia Gate” has collapsed, thanks to the Mueller report, which found no conclusive proof of Russian interference. No evidence has been presented to support either of these claims.

Disproof

The article advances recurring pro-Kremlin narratives denying any Russian role in Western election meddling or the Skripal poisoning. Any accusations made against the Kremlin, however well-founded, are invariably met with knee-jerk charges of Russophobia.

Russia has a documented track record of interfering in Western elections -- see our list of reports and analyses on the subject here.
