The US and Ukraine are planning mass ethnic cleansing in Donbas

Summary

The US and Ukraine are planning to organize a large-scale provocation, namely, mass ethnic cleansing in Donbass and for this purpose are going to introduce 20,000 peacekeepers, which will prevent Russia from defending the civilians there.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, recurring disinformation. If a peacekeeping mission would be deployed in the East of Ukraine it would consist of an international contingent under UN mandate. There are no indications that such a mission would result in any ethnic cleansing, quite the contrary. https://www.rferl.org/a/canada-making-diplomatic-push-ukraine-un-peacekeeping-plan/28845877.html, https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-to-seek-russian-approval-for-peacekeepers-in-eastern-ukraine-1510258304.

The US is provoking a civil war in Ukraine

The US is provoking a civil war in Ukraine in order to force this country to break off railway communication with Russia and thereby prevent Beijing from reviving the ‘Great Silk Road‘ from China to Europe through Russia.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. The war in Ukraine is a war between Russian-backed separatists and the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Paris cancels the annual Christmas markets, instead, it will only hold Ramadan

According to a municipality spokesman, the French capital wants the Champs-Élysées to focus on the aesthetic and cultural dimension in the Christmas season, reflecting the uniqueness of the location. Marcel Campion, who has been organizing this Christmas market since 2008, has prevented the deterioration of the quality of the markets, and he does not understand why the city management has decided to cancel them. It is strange that the city organizes a celebration of Ramadan but will not organize one simple Christmas market.

Disproof

These kind of disinformation stories regularly appear as Christmas approaches euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Christmas&disinfo_issue=&date=, . There is no link between the decision to renew the Christmas fare and Ramadan. For the past nine years, 77-year-old Marcel Campion, known as "king of the fairground" has been in charge of the event but in the summer Paris City Council voted unanimously not to renew the deal with Campion. "Paris wants to host a Christmas market on the Champs-Elysées, but we want to take the time to reflect on the best solution for Parisians and tourists," a City Hall spokesperson told Le Parisien. www.thelocal.fr/20171108/why-there-wont-be-a-christmas-market-on-the-champs-elysees-this-year, .
