Disinfo: The task [of the West] is to use force, terror…

Summary

The task [of the West] is to use force, terror and propaganda to make Ukraine an anti-Russian power in order to set it against Russia later, and then to destroy both Russia and Ukraine.

Disproof

The EU and US respect both the Ukrainian and Russian sovereignty and territorial integrity. The West does not "create" anti-Russian power in Ukraine, the anti-Russian sentiments in Ukraine are caused by Russian military aggression on Ukrainian territory.

Georgia: EU integration will impoverish us, just like the Baltic countries.

Disproof

No country became poorer after accession to the EU than it was before. After their accession to the European Union in 2004, until 2015 the Baltic countries’ GDP expanded at a record level. About 93% increase in Estonia, 111% in Lithuania and 115% in Latvia. // bit.ly/2mfsAB9,

The only political goal of the West is to pass Ukraine into the hands of Russia, to make Kremlin preoccupied with Ukrainian problems.

Disproof

Both the EU and the US have many political goals, not all of them connected to Ukraine. // The West does not want to pass Ukraine into Russia's hands, the West supports sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and has even imposed sanctions on Russia for violating these.

The project of Ukraine has no content apart from nazi ideology. The whole purpose of the independent state is being anti-Russian and “Heil Bandera”.

Disproof

Repeating a myth that has been debunked many times. There are no nazis governing Ukraine, vast majority of Ukrainians voted for democratic parties. // There is no "anti-Russian ideology", it is the actions of the current regime in the Kremlin (like illegal annexation of Crimea or military actions in the east of Ukraine) that are perceived as aggression.
