Summary of Disinformation

The street protests in Ukraine during Victory Day 9th of May showed that in Ukraine there is a Nazi government and a basically anti-fascist people.

Disproof

On the Victory Day of May 9, street conflicts occurred in a few cities of Ukraine because some pro-Russian activists wore the so-called ‘St. George's ribbon’ that has been accepted by Russia as an unofficial symbol of the Soviet victory in WWII and at the same time recognized by Ukraine as a symbol of the Russian invaders, who annexed Crimea in 2014, and pro-Russian separatists, who unleashed the war in Donbas with the support of Moscow. bit.ly/2qglkpj. The narrative of a nazi government in Ukraine is often reoccuring in pro-Kremlin disinformation.
