Kiev’s desire to establish border control with Russia would risk creating in Donbas “a situation similar to that in the Bosnian city of Srebrenica.” […] We are in danger of having a situation similar to that in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica.

Who is stronger, what will happen and who will lead them, these nationalists, when they enter these territories without any guarantee of protection to the inhabitants of Donbas is clear.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aimed at justifying the illegal annexation of Crimea and Russia's continuous acts of aggression in the East of Ukraine. See previous cases here. Genocide in Srebrenica in 1995 was recognized by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), under the auspices of the UN; no international bodies have expressed concern about the threat of genocide potentially facing Crimeans or Donbas residents.

See previous disinformation cases alleging that Russia prevented genocide in Donbas, Srebrenica will repeat in Ukraine; Second Srebrenica to happen in Donbas if Ukraine receives control over the border.
