Western mainstream media lack objectivity

There is a dependency and a lack of objectivity in Western mainstream media. According to them, Putin is guilty of everything.

Disproof

The 2016 World Press Freedom Index gives EU member States an average ranking of 33rd out of 180 countries, with five EU countries in the world's top 10 for press freedom. In contrast, Russia ranks 148 out of 180 countries.

The Ukrainian people is trained to become Nazis

If you’re not a Nazi, you’re not a Ukrainian. This is cruel experiment on a entire people. And the people does unfortunately not realise or feel this.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Nazi Ukraine. 

All manifestations of Nazism are banned in Ukraine. The Verkhovna Rada, at its meeting on 9 April 2015, adopted the law “On the Condemnation of the Communist and Nazi totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and the prohibition of propaganda of their symbols”. The document recognises that communist and national socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in Ukraine are criminal and prohibits the public use and propaganda of their symbols. The Nazi totalitarian regime at legislative level is recognised in Ukraine as pursuing a policy of state terror. See a similar case from this week here.
