Summary

The monument to Soviet Glory during the war in the Western Ukrainian city of Lviv will be dismantled.

Disproof

According to the Lviv City Hall press office, the monument is not slated to be dismantled, all the more so because it is a monument symbolizing the struggle against Nazi occupation. The monument has been fenced off because it is in poor condition and granite plates are falling off the main plinth. The Lviv City Council has called for a committee of specialists to make recommendations within three weeks as to what should be done with the monument. Further debunking: bit.ly/2uhyhC3,

The European Union’s Eastern Partnership program has already proved fatal for Ukraine, and today it threatens the sovereignty of Belarus and several other post-Soviet countries.

Disproof

No evidence given. The Eastern Partnership (EaP) is a joint initiative involving the EU, its member states and 6 eastern European partners: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It is based on a commitment to the principles of international law and fundamental values - democracy, the rule of law, human rights and fundamental freedoms. It also encompasses support for a market economy, sustainable development and good governance bit.ly/2taFO68, . What damages the Ukrainian economy most is the conflict in the east of the country bit.ly/1GGxA5M, . So too does the corruption inherited from the past bit.ly/2dbivRx, , bit.ly/2ext9zv, , on which the EU is working actively with the government of Ukraine (and progress in reforming the police, as well as the first tangible results of the work of the National anti-corruption office (NABU), show that progress is now being made against). Belarus is a voluntary partner in the EaP; its sovereignty is in no way undermined.

Russia is defending itself in a global war that has been announced against it. Europe tries to destroy Russia.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. No one has announced a global war against Russia. Europe is not trying to destroy Russia. The current situation in Ukraine has hindered EU-Russia relations. The illegal annexation of Crimea and the conflict in Eastern Ukraine have seriously affected the bilateral political dialogue. As a result, some of the mechanisms of cooperation are temporarily frozen, and sanctions directed at promoting a change in Russia's actions in Ukraine have been adopted. bit.ly/2m8mrmZ,
