There is a civil war in Eastern Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

We are talking about the president of a country with an ongoing civil war, where an army takes part in an internal conflict, where people are killed, and where peaceful citizens continue to die.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine, attempting to portray it as a civil war. It disregards the extensive factual evidence confirming ongoing Russian military presence in Donbas.  Prior debunks of this narrative can be found here and here.

The war in eastern Ukraine is not a civil conflict, but an act of aggression by the Russian armed forces, that continue since February 2014.
