Ukraine denies all peaceful means of Donbas conflict solution

Summary of Disinformation

[…] The Ukrainian authorities do not wish to talk with or to listen to anyone. They deny all peaceful means of Donbas conflict solution without being able to solve the issue by military means.

 

Disproof

This message contains common pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives concerning the war in Ukraine. It disregards a multitude of factual evidence of Russian military presence in Donbas. Consult the evidence database and publications with further evidence here and here.

It is untrue that the Ukrainian authorities purposefully block any attempts to resolve the Donbas conflict. During Zelenskyy's recent visits to Germany and France, the sides have discussed the need to restart peace efforts, including the so-called Normandy format, which brings together Ukraine, Russia, Germany, and France. On 27 June Zelenskyy called on Putin to release Ukrainian seamen from detention in Russia. In late April Ukrainian president also called for an exchange of prisoners in "all-to-all" format.

See an earlier disinformation case alleging that the rumours about Russian military presence in Donbas come from linguistic misunderstanding.
