Disinfo: The US is preparing a new revolution in Ukraine

Summary

The US is preparing a new revolution in Ukraine, just as the Maidan of 2013-14 was organized by the United States, the Americans are now preparing a new revolution in Ukraine.

Disproof

No evidence given, recurring disinformation concerning the Maidan-events euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=maidan&disinfo_issue=&date=, . The article referred to does not claim that the US is planning anything in Ukraine. Furthermore, the spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens http://bit.ly/1Tl9X7W.

US allegedly helped terrorists destroy Russian planes

During the drone attacks against Russia’s Syrian bases (6 January) a P-8 Boeing Poseidon aircraft of the USAF supported the terrorists’ action. Islamists have received help from a “technologically advanced” country, the Russian defense ministry says.

Disproof

According to the US, no P-8 aircraft was in the area at the time, and - in fact - not a single one has flown over the area for a long period of time. edition.cnn.com/2018/01/09/politics/russia-us-attack-base-syria/index.html,

The appearance of a Boris Nemtsov plaza in Washington is interference in Russia’s internal affairs

The appearance of a Boris Nemtsov plaza in Washington is a rough, brutal, immoral, interference in Russia’s internal affairs.

Disproof

The names that the Council of the District of Colombia, the legislative branch of the local government of the U.S. capital, chooses for it streets are the council’s constitutional right and the city’s own business. In no way does it violate diplomatic protocols or constitute interference in any foreign country’s internal affairs.Further debunking at Polygraph www.polygraph.info/a/russian-embassy-washington-nemtsov-plaza/28967584.html, .

The European Union has banned milk sales from small Ukrainian farms that do not have EU certification

The European Union has banned milk sales from small Ukrainian farms that do not have EU certification. Farmers selling milk or milk products from such farms face fines.

Disproof

The EU Ukraine Association Agreement that Rossiyskaya Gazeta refers to makes no mention of any ban on milk sales from private farms, but the agreement does outline the introduction of uniform sanitary standards for milk and other products. Meanwhile Ukraine’s Ministry of Agrarian Policy assures that the purchase of milk from private farms will continue and the introduction of a new state standard will take place on July 1, 2018 followed by a one year transition period.
