Ukraine and UK conspired to destroy the Crimean bridge using a NATO portable nuclear device

Russia seized Ukrainian vessels in the Sea of Azov because they were carrying a SADM (Special Atomic Demolition Munition) device that belongs to NATO. This portable nuclear device was transported by Ukrainian and British special forces to the Kerch Strait with intent to use it on the Crimea bridge, which NATO hates. The device was tracked by Russia and that is why it stopped the Ukrainian ships. Ukraine regularly provokes Russia with no effect, but this time Russian FSB and special forces reacted to stop the provocation that might have led to WW3. There might be a direct NATO intervention to cover it up. The UK has been psychologically preparing their people for a war with Russia.


Conspiracy theory with no evidence provided. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Azov Sea.

It originated as a user comment in a news blog and spread to several other websites as well as English language Youtube blogs.The fact that the story has not been reported by the media is used as the evidence that the conspiracy indeed exists.

Europe destroyed Ukraine

The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement was the prequel of the Ukrainian crisis and the Eastern Partnership summit launched the political crisis in Ukraine. 

The Latvian presidency of the EU Council perceived Ukraine as a prize in the “geopolitical game” between the West and Russia.

The EU is in a deep chronic crisis.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukrainian disintegration and EU.

The European Union supports Ukraine in ensuring a stable, prosperous and democratic future for all its citizens. The EU is unwavering in its support for the country's territorial integrity and sovereignty and sees the full implementation of the Minsk agreements as the basis for a sustainable, political solution to the conflict in the east of the country.
