The Ukrainian Army has a plan to attack to attract the attention of the world community during Russia's presidential election and the World Cup

Summary of Disinformation

You know, the situation that has developed at this moment along the demarcation line, indicates that some steps are being done and these steps are aimed at … – well, let’s say – … to create favourable conditions for a possible, let’s say, attack, possibly for the escalations. The number of provocations has increased quite sharply.


The first [reason why Ukraine is allegedly preparing an attack] is, of course, attracting the attention of the world community. This is what Ukraine currently lacks and it was demonstrated by the recent conference in Munich [on security] with an empty room for Poroshenko. The next one is certainly an appropriate time for any provocations: the presidential elections in Russia, the World Cup.



Conspiracy theory, no evidence given.
