Nazi ideology became the only one allowed in Ukraine after February 2014

2014 was truly a turning point for Ukraine. The second-largest and most populous post-Soviet republic chose the “European path of development”, implicated in Nazi ideology. The neo-Nazis who brought their henchmen to power not only don’t want to negotiate peacefully with anyone, like Moscow or Budapest but also do not imagine such a possibility. The Nazi ideology of “Ukrainian integral nationalism”, after February 2014 became the only one allowed in Ukraine. It does not even assume the possibility of peaceful coexistence of “Ukrainian Nazis” with any “aliens”. Rather deportation, or forced assimilation, or the physical destruction of such.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative attempting to link Ukraine with Nazism. The accusation of Nazism is a popular propaganda technique used by pro-Kremlin outlets. Read more: Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest.

The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy.

The EU is waging a vaccine war against Russia

A war of vaccines is being carried out by the West against Russia in order to discredit the Russian-developed Sputnik vaccine and Russia’s efforts to curb the coronavirus pandemic.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation part of a narrative aimed at promoting Russia's Sputnik vaccine.

While, due to the pressing nature of the coronavirus crisis, there has undoubtedly been a race for safe and efficient vaccines against COVID-19, the narrative, according to which Russian-developed vaccines are attacked solely because they are developed in Russia, is false.

Ukraine sold chemical weapons to Azerbaijan for the Karabakh War

The Ukrainian government had sold and transferred phosphorus bombs to Azerbaijan to support the Azerbaijani army against Armenia in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Disproof

An unfounded claim, presented without evidence.

The Ukrainian government denied that any chemical weapons had been transferred and/or sold to Baku. In addition, no pro-Kremlin disinformation actors put forward substantial evidence to back up their allegations about Ukraine.
