Disinfo: There is no elected parliament in Ukraine

Summary

Ukrainian MPs are no MPs. They are hooligans, nobody elected them. There is no elected parliament in Ukraine.

Disproof

The EU strongly supported the holding of open, genuine and democratic Presidential and parliamentary elections in May and October 2014: http://www.eeas.europa.eu/archives/docs/statements/docs/2014/140612_01_en.pdf

OSCE: The elections marked an important step in Ukraine’s aspirations to consolidate democratic elections in line with its international commitments. There were many positive points to the process, such as an impartial and efficient Central Election Commission, an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms https://www.osce.org/odihr/elections/ukraine/132556?download=true

Ukraine is not a country, it is a territory

A country that does not punish those who are guilty is not a state, and those behind the “mass killings in Maidan and Odessa” have not been brought to justice.

Disproof

Repeated disinformation undermining the statehood and thus the territorial integrity of Ukraine. For hundreds of similar cases in the past, see https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=ukraine&disinfo_issue=&date=

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.

Merkel plans to relocate 500,000 migrants to Georgia by the end of 2020

It is planned to relocate 500,000 migrants to Georgia by the end of 2020. The Georgian government and the opposition have given their consent to it. The story is illustrated with a picture of Angela Merkel on the background of refugees.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about migrants being relocated to Georgia.

Georgia has no commitment to accept migrants. No similar statements on accepting migrants have ever been made either by the Georgian government or by the opposition. Further debunking by Mythdetector.

The recent ammo depot explosion in Ukraine was meant to hide evidence on MH17

The recent ammo depot explosion near Ichnya, Chernihiv region was meant to hide evidence regarding the presence of Buk missile system in Ukraine. Such explosions can be also hiding arms smuggling into Europe. Also, sources say that there are explosions of phosphorus munitions prohibited by the OPCW.

Disproof

No evidence given.

Deputy commander of the Ukrainian General Staff, Rodyon Tymoshenko, told a news conference the incident began with four explosions across the depot. "The intensity of the blasts suggests that it was most probably sabotage," he said.
