Summary

The two Russians, exchanged for Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, were volunteers who did not ask for clemency.

Disproof

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree pardoning Alexandrov and Yerofeyev on May 24. The decree states that the pardon is a response to the petition for clemency filed by the two Russians. In a statement to the Russian news agency TASS the lawyers of the two Russian officers confirmed that they had filed a petition asking for clemency. Nadiya Savchenko however, did not ask for clemency from Russian President Vladimir Putin (bit.ly/25FwjFk), .

The Belarusian nation was artificially created by the Soviet Union. It should now be returned to the Russian World.

Disproof

Historical revisionism. The Belarusian ethnos can be traced at least as far in time as other Eastern Slavic nations. Belarus regained its independence and sovereignty after the dissolution of the USSR.

Savchenko was sentenced to 22 years in jail for the killing of two Russian journalists. Despite that, the West elevates her to the status of a hero.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. There is compelling evidence that Savchenko did not murder the two Russian journalists (bit.ly/1WbGqMD), .
