Disinfo: Ukraine has become a vassal of Germany


Ukraine has become a vassal of Germany.

It reflects the basically colonial system of the geopolitical chain of vassals and overlords that exists in the world.  The USA gives Germany direct commands.  But the Germans also behave in the same way towards Ukraine; supposedly they know better what should be right for the country.  That is the purpose of the current geopolitical system, and that cannot be said out loud in Europe.


No evidence provided.  Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the EU and US relations with Ukraine and Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a sovereign state.  Neither US, nor the EU countries in general or Germany in particular control Ukraine.  Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, but were violated by Russia in 2014.

Moreover, Germany is very keen to see a stable, democratic and economically flourishing Ukraine.  The German Government is assisting Ukraine’s transition to a market economy and its efforts to move closer to European structures.  In the wake of Russia’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula in contravention of international law and in light of the military conflict in eastern Ukraine that has claimed large numbers of victims, Germany is seeking to reach a peaceful settlement of the crisis in close cooperation with its European and international partners, especially within the framework of what is known as the Normandy format (Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia).

For the EU countries Ukraine is a priority partner.  In June 2014, EU and Ukraine signed an Association Agreement, including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), which promotes deeper political ties, stronger economic links and the respect for common values.

The Ukrainian election is full of massive election manipulations and falsifications

The Ukrainian election is full of massive election manipulations and falsifications.

The massive election manipulations and falsifications of Petro Poroshenko are certainly no secret in Germany.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Ukrainian elections. See here for the summary of disinformation around presidential elections in Ukraine.

The presidential election in Ukraine was competitive and held with respect for fundamental freedoms, the international observers concluded in a preliminary statement published after the second round of elections.

Notre Dame fire: it was arson and not the only case

With the ruins of the Notre Dame still smoking, French officials were repeating like parrots – apparently on the orders of Macron – “there was no arson.” Open text answer is: This was arson, and not the only case.

Recently, in France, an epidemic of vandalism in Christian churches has been taking place. In the church of Lavaur, unknown authors burned down the altar. Over the last month, two dozen churches were set on fire in France.


No evidence given, neither for the claims of arson at Notre-Dame, nor for the claims on "dozen churches being vandalised". After the first week of investigations and after after studying video surveillance footage and interviewing witnesses, the theory of an electrical failure is preferred by the investigators . Investigations are continuing and the full investigation will likely take several months.

In the case of Saint-Alain Cathedral in Lavaur, located 300 meters away from a school, teenagers who allegedly burnt the altar cloth and committed other acts of vandalism were identified using video surveillance data and incriminated. The presence of cakes in a confessional and the twisted arm of Christ in the form of dab (a popular dance among teenagers) suggest that the authors were more likely to look for troubled teens than religious fanatics, summarizes La Depeche.

In Ukraine, chocolate stocks decline, as soft drink rises

The gap between the soft drink Tarkhun and chocolate bars grows. The exit poll conducted by the Ukrainian Academy of Monitoring, Analysis and Forecast shows that by 1:00pm on April 21, 71.8% of voters voted for presidential candidate Volodymyr Zelenskyiy popularly known as “Green Tarkhun”, while 28.2% of the respondents chose “chocolate”, i.e., the current head of state Petro Poroshenko.
