The US is pressing Ukraine to launch a war against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The West, primarily the US, is raising pressure on Ukraine demanding to launch a war against Russia. Ukraine is now being pushed to a war in Donbas, a war with Russia. Through Donbas and then – wherever it will be possible.



No evidence given. Recurring disinformation about Ukraine's aggression towards Russia, when in fact it is Russia that supports the separatists in Donbas and East of Ukraine, inside the sovereign state of Ukraine, and has illegally annexed Crimea.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.
