Disinfo: There is a civil war in Ukraine

Summary

That is, around this war, there is a lot of hypocrisy in Donbas. But as for the Civil War, it always happens in this way. And this is a Civil War.

If there are many Russians [Russian soldiers in Ukraine], where are they? They should be in captivity at least proportionally somehow. Right? At least, proportionally. How many of them are there? Do you want to name the figure for 3 years of the war? 14 (I mean citizens). Fourteen.

Well, there was the Spanish Civil War earlier and you could also ask: what a Civil War was there? It was an occupation because Franko’s Army was actually supplied with and its main combat forces were squadrons, primarily of Germanic and German pilots. The government, the legitimate government, it concluded an agreement with the Soviet Union, accordingly, our pilots were there. [Comrade] Stern was famous. Then, our tankmen. The ‘guy from our city’. But it was a Civil War. Yes, the war stimulated by other states that ignited and looked for their gains, but it was a Civil War.

Disproof

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf.

According to him, if there was no danger, no anti-terrorist barracks would be placed in public places, and no policemen would go with the machine gun among the public places. In addition Czech safety is out of the governmental control, because Czech citizens have become hostages of the EU’s multicultural policy.

Disproof

Roadblocks and policemen with machine guns are only precautions. However, the threat of terrorist attacks in the Czech Republic is very low.
