Main political forces of Poland try to prevent the Ukrainian-Russian reconciliation – they are interested in the continuation of the conflict. They need this conflict to have an opportunity to continue frightening Polish society with the Russian Army.
The claim that Ukraine is in a state of war with Russia is absurd. This is a civil war which was provoked by a coup d’état. Ukrainian state officials promised to kill everyone in Donbas and to drop a nuclear bomb on them. This is a conflict between one part of the Ukrainian people who consider themselves part of Russian civilization and the aggressive one, supported by the West. This other side wants to tear Ukraine away from Russian World and to turn it into the buffer area between the EU and NATO, on the one hand, and Russia, on the other. This side of the conflict includes the darkest forces, successors and accomplices of the Hitlerites. The Donbas people are the successors of the winners over Nazism, while the war is being waged by those on the other side who consider themselves successors of fascist accomplices. How can Donbas people be reunited with the rest of Ukraine where flagrant Nazi gangs organize their marches and praise the murderers?
This publication is a mix of groundless generalization, conspiracy theories and manipulations, which follow recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about 2014 Ukraine's coup d'état, and Fascist / Nazi Ukraine. It is aimed to legitimize Russia-backed armed forces in Donbas and to demonize Ukrainian authorities by painting them as successors of the Hitlerites.
It also seriously misrepresents the ongoing acts of aggression by the Russian armed forces in Ukraine referring to alleged Ukrainian authorities' plans to exterminate the Donbas people including by dropping a nuclear bomb on them. Ukraine has no nuclear bombs. After signing the Budapest Memorandum Ukraine removed all nuclear weapons from its soil in exchange for assurances that Russia would respect its sovereignty. Russia's aggressive actions in eastern Ukraine are well-established and thoroughly documented.
Last but not least, there was no coup d’état in Ukraine in 2014. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s violent dispersal of peaceful student protests against Yanukovych's sudden decision to withdraw from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.
