Disinfo: Ukraine is falling apart


Ukraine is falling apart. Ukraine has already been broken up into at least three parts (occupied Banderastan, Novorussia and Crimea).


Ukraine is a functioning state that is currently taking important reform steps in key areas, notably constitutional reform, decentralisation, the fight against corruption and reform of the judiciary. The Russian Federation violated international law and key principles of the European security framework in illegally annexing the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol. See here for more information about EU position on Crimea annexation.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

Hillary Clinton is a “warmonger” 

Hillary Clinton is a “warmonger” which is demonstrated through her alleged quote: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president we will attack Iran and we could obliterate all Iranians.” She put Victoria Nuland in the ministry of foreign affairs so that she could organize the US coup in Ukraine.


Hillary Clinton said this in 2009 as a response to a question how she would handle Iran if it used nuclear weapons against Israel. The claim about the organised coup in Ukraine is a conspiracy theory without evidence and a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative.

Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified

Nigel Farage warned Americans that election surveys are being falsified. The US opinion poll agencies are ready to create numbers on demand, just like in case of Brexit where the opinion polls agencies were bribed in favour of supporters of remaining in the EU.


Polling agencies’ surveys‘ results over the Brexit referendum have not shown clear support to either exit or remain. In June there were 32 surveys, of which 16 showed a lead for exit and 15 showed a lead for remain. See here for more information. No evidence to supports the other claims.

Vladimir Zhirinovsky said that in Estonia, from September 1, nothing will be taught in school in Russian language, leaving an impression that teaching in Russian in Estonia will be banned.


All students who complete a Russian-language basic school and choose to go on to secondary school will receive 60% of their teaching in Estonian and 40% in Russian: bit.ly/2cStyhU,
