Summary

The Ukrainian government derives its legitimacy not from the people, but from Western leaders.

Disproof

The 25 May presidential election in Ukraine was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and it respected fundamental freedoms, despite the hostile security environment in two eastern regions of the country. According to the OSCE, "people of Ukraine had the opportunity to genuinely express their will at the ballot box" (bit.ly/1hqcDuR), . Similary, Ukraine’s local elections in October 2016 were competitive and generally showed respect for the democratic process (bit.ly/1VUL9V5), .

Traditional European cuisine is under attack by Muslim citizens

Traditional European cuisine is under attack by Muslim citizens. Proved by the incident in Copenhagen Hospitality College (a cooking school) in Denmark, which required tasting of pork and wine from its Muslim students; and later it was forced by the Danish government to take the pork and wine off the menu.

Disproof

The Copenhagen Hospitality College case took place in 2012 and therefore cannot be considered a consequence of the current migrant crisis. The school did not have to take the pork and wine off the menu. It was merely decided that Muslim students do not have to
taste pork and wine and can ask their fellow students for help instead: bit.ly/1SLYfBn,

Cannibalistic rituals are rampant in Ukrainian society

Cannibalistic rituals are rampant in Ukrainian society. // The EU provoked the Ukrainian Revolution in 2014 which was implemented with the involvement of Nazi groups.

Disproof

Absurd and without evidence. // The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), .
