DISINFO: Ukraine is obsessed with marijuana, prostitution and LGBT


Ukraine used to be a country of great science, industry, culture, aeronautics. Now it is obsessed with marijuana, prostitution, LBGT; great job!


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about moral decay, and degradation of Ukraine. An example of a haha-ganda narrative.
