Disinfo: There is no solution for the Ukraine. None whatsoever.

Summary

There is no solution for the Ukraine.  None whatsoever.

So what could happen next?

The basic ingredients are pretty predictable: protests, civil unrest, violence and, eventually, a break-up of the Ukraine into several entities.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Ukraine is a failed, disintegrating state with no sovereignty and under Western control.

Refering to Ukraine as "The Ukraine" is offensive, suggesting Ukraine's colonial dependence.

Zelenskii is unable to handle the Ukronazis

Zelenskii has proven to be a total ZERO.  Simply put, neither he not his team can get anything done, anything at all. Nothing, nothing at all.

While initially the victory of Zelenskii seem to indicate that the Ukronazis had suffered a crushing defeat, it now is completely obvious that Zelenskii lacks the will, or the means, or both, to tackle this huge problem.  Now the Ukronazis are back in force, they provoke Zelenskii on a daily basis, but the man is simply unable to react and reassert his authority.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives painting the 2013-14 Ukrainian revolution as a coup d'etat, and Ukrainian politics as dominated by fascist/Nazi groups and ideology.

The Euromaidan was not a coup but a nationwide popular protest against the government's sudden announcement that it would not sign the EU Association Agreement. See the full debunk here.

US uses fascist instruments to control satellite countries

The United States has established a system of world domination, and the United States uses fascist and Nazi instruments to control its satellite countries. To this end, ethnic conflicts are specifically fomented and they [the US] are trying to bring these countries to war. For example, it set up Georgia’s attack on South Ossetia in 2008, killing hundreds of Ossetians there and committing genocide.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. It is one of many pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives alleging that the US is behind the so-called colour revolutions around the world. It is also consistent with a narrative denying any role for Russia in the Russo-Georgian 2008 war, and presenting it instead as a conflict between South Ossetia and Georgia. See related disinformation claims alleging that the US was behind the public protests in Ukraine, Belarus, Armenia, France, Georgia, Venezuela, and Russia.

The European Union reiterates its firm support to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia within its internationally recognized borders.

The official numbers of COVID-19 cases in Ukraine is totally fictional

COVID19 has hit the Ukraine very, very hard.  The problem is that the authorities, which fully knew that they had no means to do anything meaningful began by thumping their chests and saying that there were no cases in the Ukraine only to then suddenly decree drastic quarantine measures.  And yet, the true information is seeping out: Ukrainians hospitals are full of cases, mostly un-diagnosed, and many have already died.  Officially, and as of right now, there are only 14 confirmed cases in the Ukraine, and only two fatalities.  But absolutely everybody knows that these numbers are totally fictional and that the real number of cases remains unknown due to a lack of testing kits, not a lack of cases.  MDs in Ukrainian hospitals are sounding the alarms, but nobody is listening.

Disproof

An unfounded claim exacerbating the situation with the COVID-19 outbreak in Ukraine. Ukrainian media are reporting extensively about the outbreak and its spread in Ukraine. The outbreak is a serious challenge to any society, and Ukraine is addressing the outbreak with all available resources.

WHO statistics on the outbreak can be found here.
