Disinfo: Ukraine came up with excuses to continue murder and terror in Donbas

Summary

There was little that could have prevented Kiev from stopping the war in Donbas if it were really ready to embark on the European path. Ukrainian authorities came up with excuses, continuing shelling, murder and terror.

 

Disproof

Reccurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukraine being the aggressor and provocating the conflict with Russia.

The annexation of Crimea is a fact.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court stated that “the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government.

Nearly 100 dead as a result of free Hep C vaccine from the Lugar Lab

Nearly 100 people, and likely more, died over a free Hep C elimination program that did not go as planned. This is the true agenda of the US-funded Lugar Lab.

Biologists of the U.S. military-medical group in Georgia and private contractors under federal contract with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency could have performed secret experiments on residents of Georgia.

Disproof

No evidence about the experiments in Lugar laboratory, vaccine or 100 dead bodies. Recurring narrative about Lugar Laboratory.

The EU may try to pressure the elected candidates in Ukraine through social media monitoring

The EU wants to create an impression of free elections in Ukraine through social media monitoring. Later the collected data can be used to pressure the elected candidates.

This shows disregard by the EU for Ukraine’s sovereignty.

 

 

Disproof

No evidence given for any influence attempts. The tender the article apparently refers to has been published by Council of Europe, a human rights organisation that has 47 member states, including Russia.

It is part of the The Council of Europe project “Supporting the transparency, inclusiveness and integrity of electoral practice in Ukraine”, implemented within the Action Plan for Ukraine 2018-2021.
