Ukraine infected the Azov Sea with cholera

Summary

Cholera was found near the Ukrainian Azov sea port of Mariupol. According to a source, the officials of Mariupol have found cholera in the waters around Mariupol since 2017 but Ukrainian authorities ignore these findings, creating a potentially dangerous situation for neighbouring Russia.

Disproof

The World Health Organization Regional Office have informed that they have no data confirming the presence of cholera in Mariupol or the surrounding area.

According to StopFake, the Health Ministry of Ukraine said that as of July 18, 2018 no cholera cases had been recorded in Ukraine and no cholera bacteria were found in the Donetsk area or any other region. The Ministry published a statement on its website debunking Russian cholera claims.

Ukraine, together with the help of US secret services, wants to poison Donbas water supply

According to Cyberberkut, a group of pro-Russian hackers, Ukraine, helped by the US secret services, is preparing to use nuclear waste to poison the water supply of the separatist controlled swathes of Luhansk and Donetsk territories, in order to blame Russia. Ukrainian military are being trained for this operation by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and fourteen other US military instructors.

Disproof

The disinformation was spread by Cyberberkut, an ostensibly independent hacking group that cybersecurity experts say in fact has ties to Russian intelligence.

One of the fake “leaked” documents details how the nuclear waste was allegedly transferred from Ukraine’s Vakelenchuk storage facility in March 2018.

The Russian military is open, friendly, and non-aggressive against foreign countries

The Western military bloc cannot stand Russia being an independent player in international politics and is trying to prevent this by boosting its military presence in Eastern Europe. In a contrast to NATO’s behaviour, Russia’s military “demonstrates openness, friendliness and the absence of any sort of aggression against foreign countries.
