The Minsk Agreements are violated because of the Ukrainian strategy to join the EU and NATO

Summary of Disinformation

The Minsk Agreements are violated as Ukraine has unilaterally declared, and constitutionally approved, a strategy to join the European Union and NATO without consulting the Donbas republic.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Minsk Agreements.

The Protocol on the results of consultations of the Trilateral Contact Group (Minsk Protocol) is an agreement to halt the war in the Donbas region of Ukraine.  It was signed by representatives of Ukraine, the Russian Federation, and so-called "the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR)" and "the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR)" on 5 September 2014.

The text of the agreement does not stipulate any recognition of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk "People's Republics" or any need to consult with them about national issues.
