The shooter in the New Zealand terror attack and Ukrainian nationalists share the same psychological profile

Summary of Disinformation

Looking at the face, modus operandi and weapons of the shooter in the Christchurch terror attack, one can recognise the same psychological type of Ukrainian nationalists. If the West turns a blind eye to the crimes of the Ukrainian nationalists, these kind of events will repeat themselves in every Western country. If Europe stays blind to nationalists in “vyshyvankah” (Ukrainian national costume) who are shouting fascist slogans, their followers will continue committing acts of terror.



Conspiracy theory, that exploits the global outrage over the terror attack in New Zealand to strengthen recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the fascist Ukraine.
