The image used is clearly not from Ukraine, and it was used as early as 2011, depicting an American sniper on excercise.bit.ly/2ucUnpP,

The spreading of Western propaganda myths already helped the Baltic nations to join the European Union and NATO, and it has become a state-building principle for modern Ukraine. The sanctions are called a reaction, which is also Western propaganda.

Disproof

The Baltic states joined the EU and NATO based on independent foreign policy decisions. The process of state-building in Ukraine has all signs of a democratic process. The sanctions against Russia are a retaliatory measure, as it is a reaction to Russian aggression against Ukraine.bit.ly/2tmK7GA, .
