Ukraine is moving toward total Nazi ideology

Summary

Russia did not steal 7 per cent of Ukrainian territory, Ukraine is moving toward total Nazi ideology.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine and the Nazis that is repeated ever since the outbreak of the Euromaidan revolution. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Ukraine&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77101&date=

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. The total number of members of radical groups, e.g. the "Right Sector", never amounted to more than a few hundred to a maximum of a thousand people. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens: bit.ly/1Tl9X7W.

The insignificance of the "Right Sector" is evident from the election results – their candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections, and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections.

Crimea is part of Ukraine. Russia violated international law as well as key principles of the European security framework in illegally annexing the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol. The European Union does not recognise and continues to strongly condemn this violation of international law, which remains a challenge to the international security order. This position is based on the UN Charter, which clearly states that the territory of a State cannot be acquired by another State resulting from the threat or use of force, as well as on the Helsinki Final Act in which the signatories declared their intention to respect the inviolability of frontiers and territorial integrity.

UNGA Resolution 68/262, which condemned Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine, was supported by 100 United Nations member states. Only 10 states opposed it.

Poroshenko dismissed and ignored in Paris

Poroshenko was invited at the last moment to the Paris commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. His plane was parked far away from other leaders’ airplanes at the Charles de Gaulle airport, and US president Donald Trump refused to shake Poroshenko’s hand.

Disproof

No evidence given, TV show uses misleading footage to justify false messages. The Ukrainian president was invited to Paris at the same time as all the other delegations. The TV show refers to a tweet by spokesperson of the Ukrainian president Svyatoslav Tsegolko to make the claim about the last minute invitation, but there is no such tweet.

The Ukrainian airplane was parked where there was room at the airport, next to the Boeing 747 of the Qatar Emir. The image shown in the program is zoomed in to not to show the surrounding aircrafts.

US and its puppets fear the Donbas elections because they produce an independent world

US and its puppets like [Ukrainian president] Petro Poroshenko fear the [Donbas] elections because any electoral campaign produces an independent world. Kyiv and the US do not want the Donbas to have its own voice and representatives.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about US role in Ukraine.

The elections were held in Donbas, Ukraine, on 11 November by Russian-backed separatists and were not recognised by the international community. The elections were illegal under Ukrainian law, illegitimate and in violation of the Minsk Agreements.
