Summary of Disinformation

“They already brought Nazis to us, to the border of DPR and LPR”, says expert from RSSI (http://en.riss.ru/), institute founded by the Russian President. Ukrainian nationalists brought troops, armored vehicles and artillery to the zone of conflict. There might be a total genocide in the DPR and LPR. On 25 November, the Ukrainians will advance to the front.

Disproof

Repeating the disinformation trend of the past weeks that Ukraine provokes a conflict in the East, repeating recurring disinformation about Ukrainian "Nazis".

No evidence given for a threat of genocide in Ukraine. The word genocide is frequently used in pro-Kremlin disinformation https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=genocide&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_language%5B%5D=rus&date=,but it seldom corresponds to the actual definition of a genocide http://www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/genocide.html
