Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about supposed chemical provocations in Donbas. The author claims that about 10 days ago (counting from the 5th of December, 2018) an improvised fire-ball was dropped from Ukrainian drone on a house in a suburb of Donetsk. The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission has not reported use of chemical agents or drones in any of its recent reports (20 November, 2018 - 5 December, 2018).

The EU is assisting the government of Tajikistan with its structural reform process and enhancing the capacity of civil society in the country.

A new "NATO brigade" arrived in Donbas

A new “NATO brigade” has arrived in Donbas. // A division composed of 28 people in NATO uniform has arrived to Ukraine and is located near Donbas.

Disproof

No evidence given. Previously, the Ukrainian Armed Forces press office emphasized that there are no foreigners in the war zone in eastern Ukraine, only exclusively Ukrainian military are deployed there. Pro-Kremlin sources repeatedly accuse foreign military of taking part in the war in Ukraine without providing any evidence, see dozens of cases in our database. Earlier, Polish Ministry for National Defence and Lithuania's Armed Forces have confirmed that their soldiers have only delivered trainings to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and do not take part in combat actions.
