Disinfo: Ukraine governed by a Nazi regime, Ukraine preparing a military solution to the conflict in Donbas

Summary

Ukraine is governed by a Nazi regime, and the country is preparing a military solution to the conflict in Donbas. Ukraine has welcomed the “wonderful American idea” to let peacekeepers into Donbass and then cut all water and food supplies to the region in order to stoke tensions in the separatist republics.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine, depicting it as a military aggressor.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis that is repeated ever since the outbreak of the Euromaidan revolution. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Ukraine&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77101&date=

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens: bit.ly/1Tl9X7W.

The insignificance of the "Right Sector" is evident from the election results – their candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections, and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections.

Migrants are being Islamized in Europe

Europe is being destroyed by migrants and bureaucrats. Migrants which are coming to Europe are not religious, but they become Islamists there. If you’re not going to a mosque in Germany, then you are not Syrian and you’ll be deported. The system is supposed to keep only unscrupulous refugees in the country.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about migrants and Islamization.

Americans are controlling German media

The media in Germany is largely dependent on their owners in the United States. Today, none of the chief editors of leading media organizations can be appointed to the position unless they have completed a half-year internship in the American media outlets.

Disproof

No evidence given. German law does not limit or prohibit foreign ownership of the media. However, foreign ownership is a minor factor in the German media market. Recurring pro - Kremlin disinformation about US presence in Europe. Further debunking by Polygraph.

Ukrainians will be deprived of syringes and bandages

The Ukrainian authorities will deprive their citizens of medical supplies, such as syringes and bandages. The Ukrainian pharmacies will no longer be allowed to sell such materials. The population will be left without pharmacies.

Disproof

In fact, the Ukrainian law on Medicines will be updated with few changes which will reinforce control and quality of the provided services. It is not mentioned that Ukrainian pharmacies will not longer be able to sell medical supplies. Further debunking by Stop Fake.
