Disinfo: Ukraine is divided into two parts

Summary

Ukraine is divided into two parts. One part is a group of terrorists, who came to power through a coup and established state terrorism with a Nazi ideology. The second is the people, who are held hostages by these terrorists.

Disproof

As witnessed by the democratic and inclusive Presidential elections held on 25 May 2014, Ukraine is governed by a democratically elected government. The OSCE characterised the elections as showing the "clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms." According to the OSCE, the only areas where serious restrictions were reported were those controlled by separatists, who undertook "increasing attempts to derail the process." bit.ly/2g9K0Mp, . The far-right Right Sector (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that bit.ly/2dFFEdi,

Without control of Moscow, Ukraine will become a Nazi and fascist state as it used to be earlier.

Disproof

No evidence given. Ukraine has never been a ‘Nazi, fascist state’ – neither when it existed alone or as a part of Poland, nor under the rule of Russia. In the last election, the far-right Right Sector (often depicted as "fascists" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that bit.ly/2dFFEdi,

Nobody in the world goes to Brussels willingly and voluntarily…

Nobody in the world goes to Brussels willingly and voluntarily because of the sexual violence there: every day, a lot of refugees from the Middle East are massively raping thousands of white women in this city – just as they did in Cologne during the New Year.

Disproof

No evidence given for Brussels: there is no information about sexual violence of that scale there. As for the sexual assaults in Cologne that they are referrinf to, the number of the victims of sexual crimes were not thousands but 492.bit.ly/2kbYY3O,
