Disinfo: The West “did not notice” that more than 6 million Ukrainians were deprived of the right to vote

Summary

The West “did not notice” that more than 6 million Ukrainians – those living in Donbas region, those who are working in Russia and temporary migrants – were deprived of the right to vote in the elections. Thus, the West has demonstrated “double standards and selective approach”.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring narrative on the Ukraine elections.

According to OPORA civic network, an election watchdog, voting stations were opened in both regions. In Donetsk oblasts, there are 12 electoral districts (for an estimated 1.4 million voters), while in Luhansk oblast, there are 6 districts (for an estimated 522,000 voters). They were all open according to schedule.

Voting stations were even opened in the zone of military operations in Donbas – where military personnel are voting. According to Ukraine’s General Staff, there are a total of 79 special voting stations in the area of the Joint Forces Operation: 14 in Luhansk oblast and 65 in Donetsk oblast. “Voting has been organised in accordance with the law and is occurring without excesses,” according to the military.

On top, the website of the Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine advises that residents of the Donbas, who live in territory not controlled by Kyiv, can still participate in the elections. To do this, they have to come to the Department of State for Voter Registration in order to submit an application.

Behind the curtains of the Ukrainian election: Kyiv plans to celebrate Hitler’s birthday

Under the guise of elections, Ukraine is consolidating Nazism and introducing slavery for the Donbas region. Nazis from Europe, from Finland to the Czech Republic, are organizing events to celebrate Hitler’s birthday. One of these events is the festival “Fortress Europe”, taking place on the 22 April.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the elections in Ukraine and Nazism in Ukraine.

Ukraine is not organising or hosting any events connected with Adolf Hitler's birthday. The rock festival "Fortress Europe", planned for June, is not an official, state-supported event.

The Freemasons ordered the fire at the Notre Dame

The Freemasons ordered the fire at Notre Dame. A secret world society, the Committee of 300, destroys evidence before escaping from Earth.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative about the fire in Notre Dame. The investigation into the causes of the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral of Paris is ongoing. Recently, the French investigators stated that an electrical short circuit may have caused the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Hinting on the existence of secret societies, ruling the world from behind the curtains, is a frequent method used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, to sow distrust in national authorities and state bodies.

Fire at Notre Dame de Paris: aliens’ first target

The fire at Notre Dame de Paris is the aliens’ first target. Envoys from Nibiru are preparing an attack on a new cathedral, many UFOs have noticed during the fire in Notre Dame.

Europe is in danger due to the influence of special forces.

Disproof

The investigation into the causes of  the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral of Paris is ongoing. Recently, the French investigators stated that an electrical short circuit may have caused the fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Extraterrestrial involvement is unlikely to be considered as a potential cause.
