Disinfo: The “true Ukrainian identity” to be found only in the US, says the First Lady of Ukraine

Summary

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenkos wife Marina said that the “true Ukrainian identity” is found only in the US. She made this statement during her visit at the Ukrainian museum and library in Stamford, Connecticut, while accompanying her husband to the US for the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly.

Disproof

According to the Ukraine's presidential press office, Marina Poroshenko "visited the largest treasury of Ukrainian identity in the United States - Ukrainian Museum and Library in Stamford". She said that "being here one feels that this cultural institution was created and is supported by people who love Ukraine, respect its people and value Ukrainian history and art".

Marina Poroshenko did not say that the "true Ukrainian identity" is to be found only in the US.

Europe becoming Nazi again

Nazism is gradually coming back to Europe: “Nothing happened in Europe. It’s slowly going back to what it was, the Europe that generated Nazism and lived with Nazism, and the small hitch that happened after Nazi Germany was defeated is about to end.”

Disproof

There is no connection between Petrov, Boshirov and Skripal’s poisoning

UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May was “lying and distorting” facts at the UN General Assembly, while stating that Russia was guilty of Sergey Skripal’s poisoning. There is no proven connection between Petrov, Boshirov and Skripal’s poisoning. This is a political provocation.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Skripals' poisoning.

Two Novichok suspects claimed they were visiting Salisbury Cathedral but, according to the street cameras, they went two miles along the wrong route that is opposite to this place and leads to the house of Skripal.
