Disinfo: Ukraine is destroying people based on their ethnic origin

Summary

Ukraine is destroying people based on their ethnic origin.

Disproof

There were never any confirmed reports of any ethnic Russians being threatened in Ukraine; only allegations perpetuated by pro-Kremlin outlets. The new Ukrainian government has placed a priority on peace and reconciliation from the outset.

NATO organised the Ukrainian revolution to establish a new military base in Crimea.

Disproof

No evidence given. // 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 - there was no "organising" by NATO.
