Ukraine is a failed state controlled by corrupt officials

Summary

Ukraine is a failed state controlled by corrupt officials, and a thief for a president.

Disproof

In 2015, the Corruption Perception Index in Ukraine was 27/100, and only slightly higher in Russia at 29/100 (bit.ly/1Pj1FLy), . // Ukraine’s progress in reforming the police, and the first tangible results of the work of the National anti-corruption office (NABU), show that progress is now being made in the fight against corruption at all levels.

Finland is the first country to de facto waive the sanctions against Russia

Finland is the first country to de facto waive the sanctions against Russia and to officially declare so.

Disproof

An unfounded claim. Finland gives its full support to the EU’s common sanctions and unity. The implementation of the Minsk agreement is the first condition for lifting the EU’s sanctions on Russia, according to the Finnish Prime Minister. The Finnish-Russian trade commission has met for the first time since 2013.  More details in the press release of the Government Offices of Finland.
