Disinfo: The war in Donbas is caused by Kyiv’s inwillingness to safeguard the rights of ethnic minorities

Summary

The war in Donbas is caused by the unwillingness of Kyiv to recognize the rights of ethnic minorities regarding their languages. Ukraine is not fulfilling EU norms on minority languages

Disproof

After the Revolution of Dignity, the provisional government of Ukraine maintained ethnic minorities' rights to their native languages. Russian is widely spoken in Ukraine. In November 2016, a Council of Europe delegation was in Ukraine to evaluate the progress made in the monitoring of the protection of national minorities

Kyiv attempts to enter Russian airspace, flying over Crimea.

Disproof

According to Ukraine, Kyiv has not violated Russian airspace and according to ICAO rules, Ukraine can do what it likes within the confines of its own airspace without any coordination with neighboring countries.

Czech NGO People in Need is a Soros-funded intelligence organisation

People in Need (the Czech humanitarian NGO) is in fact an intelligence organisation serving in favour of NED and George Soros’ OSF, which are providing its financing. That is why the People in Need were expelled from DPR by local separatists.

Disproof

No evidence given. Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claiming  George Soros aims to destabilise countries and topple regimes in post-communist  Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. See here for similar cases.
