For joining the EU, a country should pay several tens of billions of euros. For leaving the EU, the country should double the entrance fee as in the case of UK. If the country refuses to join the EU, it is punished with a Maidan like in the case Yanukovych. If the country does not want to pay, it receives a default like Greece. If you do not accept refugees, you receive sanctions like Poland and Hungary, while if you do not accept gays and do not conduct gay parades, you get fines like Cyprus.
Donbas soldiers and Russian volunteers are fighting to prevent a genocide of the people of Donbas.
Debunking an already debunked disinformation, no evidence given for these claims. There were no confirmed reports prior to Russian intervention of any ethnic Russians being threatened in Ukraine; only allegations perpetuated by pro-Kremlin outlets. No evidence of genocide has been provided.
