Ukraine is preparing an attack on nuclear facilities in Russia

Summary

Ukraine is preparing for a missile attack on Russia’s nuclear facilities and is creating 200 missiles to launch a nuclear explosion in Russia. Ukraine, once again, admitted to the whole world that it is a traditionally terrorist country.

Disproof

Recurring narrative about aggressive Ukraine – read similar cases in which it is stated that Ukraine trains terrorists for European and Middle Eastern operations and that US and British instructors teach Ukrainians to carry out terror acts.

Russian media materials are based on the interviews of political expert Taras Zagorodniy with the Glavred website. Among other topics, the analyst talked about the security of Ukraine and the country's achievements in the defence sector. According to him, during the war with Russia, Ukraine has achieved significant success in rocket science, but this is not enough to create a full-fledged restraining shield from Russian aggression. Zagorodniy did not call on Ukraine to “arrange a nuclear explosion” on the territory of Russia, but just assumed that Ukrainian missiles could warn the Kremlin against further destabilising actions in Ukraine.

Ukraine’s lawsuit against Russia is groundless

Ukraine’s claims about Russia, set forth in a lawsuit at the International Court of Justice, are not substantiated by anything. Kyiv accuses the Kremlin of financing terrorism in the Donbas, but in reality, it was humanitarian convoys with help for the local population.

Disproof

This article contains some of the most common disinformation narratives of the Kremlin that there is a “civil war” in the Donbas.

The war in eastern Ukraine is an act of aggression by Russia, which has been going on for five years. Evidence confirms that Russia is sending its mercenaries to Donbas as well as arms. The Russian weapons, including modern sophisticated systems regularly registered by the OSCE SMM, continue to be illegally supplied through the uncontrolled segment of the Ukrainian-Russian state border. Russia has been suspected from the outset of using its so-called "humanitarian convoys’" for transporting weapons, ammunition and other supplies to Donbas. 

Holodomor was large-scale sabotage against the Soviet Union

The biggest sabotage is the story of the Holodomor. The famine is called the Holodomor, and some people continue to replicate this name. The Holodomor means that the people were starved deliberately. Not a single document has been found to prove that people were starved deliberately. It was large-scale sabotage against Ukrainians in the Soviet Union invented in Canada, in the USA, and in Western Ukraine.

Disproof

This is a recurring Kremlin narrative about the Holodomor in Ukraine.

The Great Famine (Holodomor) of 1932–33 is a man-made demographic catastrophe unprecedented in peacetime. Of the estimated six to eight million people who died in the Soviet Union, about four to five million were Ukrainians. The exact number of victims is hard to establish as a lot of evidence was destroyed.

Poland’s Eastern policy is dictated by the USA aiming to weaken Russia

Warsaw does not carry out any type of policy towards its Eastern neighbours as all of the Polish foreign actions have turned into an instrument used to weaken the Russian positions in the post-Soviet region. For example, the Polish policy towards Ukraine has only one priority – to keep this country in the orbit of the anti-Russian states. Poland’s Eastern policy is formed by the actions dictated by the interests of the United States.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that the United States fully controls the foreign policy of Poland. See other examples of this message claiming that Polish policy towards Ukraine is shaped by the Americans, the US keeps Poland on a short anti-Russian leash, and Poland is a Trojan Horse of the United States.

The statement that the United States controls the European and Polish elites is a conspiracy theory. Poland is a sovereign state, which shapes its own foreign and domestic policies.
