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

Summary of Disinformation

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.


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.
