Ukraine had a plan to "clean up" the population of Crimea, Kharkiv, Donbas and Odessa

The officials of Ukraine said bluntly that ‘now, we “clean up” Kharkiv, “clean up” Odessa, “clean up” Donbas and get on with Crimea. This plan was announced repeatedly on various levels. They “cleaned up” Kharkiv, “cleaned up” Odessa bloodily and brutally, then went on to Donbas and came across the resistance there! Therefore the peace in Crimea was established because they got stuck in Donbas.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given.

Kyiv has developed a plan for a genocide of the population of Donbas

Nobody in Kiev wants to negotiate peacefully with the pro-Kremlin separatists of Donbas, instead they are going to conduct a genocide in Donetsk and Luhansk.

Disproof

No evidence given, recurring disinformation. No evidence of genocide has been provided. The word genocide is frequently used in pro-Kremlin disinformation euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=genocide&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_language%5B%5D=rus&date=, , but it seldom corresponds to the actual definition of a genocide www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/genocide.html,

The US has unofficially declared a war on Russia

Officially it is not announced. But in fact it’s a war, considering Morgan Freeman’s statements and the statements made by officials.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation. The US has not declared a war to Russia. A chain of events has led to the deterioration of Russia's relationship with the United States. A turning point was the year 2014 when Russia illegally annexed Crimea from Ukraine and started to support the separatists in the East of Ukraine.
