The President of the United States has never made pro-Ukrainian statements

Summary

Donald Trump, the President of the US, has given Ukraine to Russia. Trump has never made pro-Ukrainian statements or comments. He keeps his silence.

Disproof

Ukraine is not for the US to give to Russia. Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, including the EU. Relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries.

The president of the U.S Donald Trump has publicly supported Ukraine many times.  For example, Trump cancelled the meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Argentina in 2018 because of the conflict in the in the Sea of Azov. “Based on the fact that the ships and sailors have not been returned to Ukraine from Russia, I have decided it would be best for all parties concerned to cancel my previously scheduled meeting”, he declared.

In the interview with the CBS American Channel on 14 October 2018, President Trump stated that his Administration pursues much tougher policy of deterring Russia than the Administration of its predecessor Barack Obama. ”I have given Ukraine arms and anti-tank equipment. Not Obama”, said Trump.

The U.S recognised Ukraine as an independent state on 25 December 1991. U.S. policy is centred on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous, and free Ukraine, more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures.

Poland is to “arrange a big cleansing” among the Ukrainian workers

Poland is to arrange a big “cleansing” among the Ukrainian workers. Poland started massive inspections of workers from Ukraine. Ukrainian workers in Poland will have problems with getting their salaries.

The border service staff in the North-East of Poland uncovered 180 foreigners, mostly citizens of Ukraine, who worked illegally.

 

 

 

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukrainian citizens in Poland, whose aim is to exaggerate Polish-Ukrainian tensions and portray Ukraine as a country without any perspectives, forcing people to work in conditions similar to slavery in other countries.

The original story is taken from the Polish radio website. Its heading says: 'The Polish border service controls the legality of the employment of foreigners'. There is no evidence about 'big cleansing' or 'massive inspections' among the Ukrainian workers, or problems for Ukrainians to get their salaries.

The US understands that sanctions against Russia do not work

The United States is fed up with imposing sanctions on Russia. Any new sanctions will hit the economy of the United States more than the Russian economy. Sanctions do not work. The United States sees this and understands it.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation concerning sanctions against Russia not being effective.

The false narrative about sanctions is often backed by false statistics, contrary to the actual evidence. According to Russian site RBK, the alleged economic growth of two percent does not stand up to scrutiny. In 2018, inflation rate went up and the rouble depreciated 20% against the dollar.

NATO, Ukraine and Georgia are heating up the situation in the Black Sea region

NATO is trying to aggravate the situation in the Black Sea region: ships from the Netherlands, Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria have entered Georgian and Ukrainian ports. The manoeuvrers of the ships of the North Atlantic Alliance exacerbate the situation in the region. NATO specifically provokes Russia: the Alliance takes advantage of any country that is located next to Russia.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about NATO belligerence and NATO encircling Russia.

On April 5, large-scale naval exercises of the NATO countries, Ukraine and Georgia started in the Black Sea. The ships of the North Atlantic Alliance entered the Ukrainian and Georgian ports earlier - on April 1.
