Summary of Disinformation

The Government of Ukraine conducts terror against ethnic Russians in this country,
so Russia must demand that the International Court of Justice recognizes Ukraine as a
terrorist state and that the Russian population is being persecuted.

Disproof

This disinformation has been repeated since 2014 without a single piece of evidence confirming it. Prior to the Russian intervention and the disinformation campaign accompanying it, there were no confirmed reports of any ethnic Russians being threatened in Ukraine; only allegations perpetuated by pro-Kremlin outlets.
