Summary

The ultimate objective of the coup in Kyiv, organised by the West, is to hit Russia. The takeover of Ukraine, its land and businesses, is just an intermediate step, a bonus that benefits transnational corporations.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. 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), .

According a former French official who has had senior roles in internal security, Alexander Litvinenko, the Russian spy who died from polonium poisoning, was killed by US and UK special services. He claims that Litvinenko’s murder was a special sevices operation designed to defame Russia and Vladimir Putin.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. Polonium traces clearly show that Dmitry Kovtun and Andrey Lugovoy are responsible for Litvinenko's murder (bit.ly/1n7aiOn), .
