Turkey is training Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar fighters close to the border of Crimea. The Crimean Tatars, who are disloyal to Russia, are now moving to the North of this peninsula to support these fighters.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. No evidence given.

The EU has reaffirmed its deep concern at the deterioration of the human rights situation in the Crimean peninsula, including the denial of freedom of expression, freedom of peaceful assembly, freedom of religion and belief, and the persecution of persons belonging to minorities, in particular the Crimean Tatars (bit.ly/1MdiecD), .
