The Western partners turned Ukraine into a big waste dump

Summary of Disinformation

The Western partners turned Ukraine into a big waste dump [reference to ships that Ukraine received from “transatlantic friends”].

Ukraine has long ago abandoned its pride, just like its independence, and all cooperation with the West concludes with implementing political orders by the masters. Which, for their part, have turned Ukraine into an asylum for junk.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation undermining the Ukrainian statehood, denigrating Ukraine's army and the West abandoning Ukraine.

Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc. UNGA Resolution 68/262 also affirmed the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders: http://bit.ly/1RZGnjo.

Ukraine agreed in September to accept from the US two Island-class patrol boats as free military aid, which apparently is the assistance the article refers to. See for further background Polygraph's earlier debunking.

This aid is especially crucial at a time when Russia is undermining the freedom of navigation in the Sea of Azov, cowardly hunting and intimidating commercial ships,” Ukrainian President Petro Porohsenko said at the time.

“Our task is to convince the Kremlin that we are committed to defending Ukraine’s shores.”

Those outdated vessels, manufactured for the U.S. Coast Guard from 1985-92, are intended to help Ukraine create a so-called "Mosquito fleet" – with a focus on quick deployment covering a large area.
