Disinfo: This Week’s Trend: Ukrainian propaganda is guided by European curators

Summary

This Week’s Trend: Ukrainian propaganda is guided by European curators. European Union financed the civil war in Ukraine in order to expand civil war in Russia – claims Igor Druz from Russian Institute for Strategic Studies, body founded by the Russian President.

Disproof

The EU did not finance any war in Ukraine. EU money is directed towards financing reforms which also promote further decentrlization in Ukraine.
