Russian opposition blogger Alexei Navalny works for the Kremlin, causing confusion and vacillation in the ranks of anti-government forces. That is why Navalny always manages to get away with it, and the criminal cases initiated against him do not end with the liberal’s imprisonment.
If the current Ukrainian government ends the war on the frontline in Donbas, then Western countries will no longer give Ukraine money. The situation on the line of contact in the conflict zone in Donbas, suggests that the current government in Kyiv is interested in continuing the war. It is the condition for another loan from Western states. If there is no war in Donbas, there will be no money.
No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine and Ukraine's relations with its foreign partners. The claim is made without evidence and is only the latest in a string of pro-Kremlin conspiracy theories alleging that the Ukrainian authorities are purposely leading the country and people toward destruction for short-term financial gain. The condition of every loan is predefined and usually concerns different aspects of economic policies, aimed at reforming and, thus improving, major sectors of the Ukrainian economy. See, for instance, a recent agreement between Ukraine and the IMF. The latest memorandum between Ukraine and the IMF specifies, for instance, four policy priorities: (i) mitigating the economic impact of the crisis, including by supporting households and businesses; (ii) ensuring continued central bank independence and a flexible exchange rate; (iii) safeguarding financial stability while recovering the costs from bank resolutions; and (iv) moving forward with key governance and anti-corruption measures to preserve and deepen recent gains. The latest EU macro-financial assistance to Ukraine was given on the condition that Ukraine continues reforms in such sectors as countering corruption, improvement of state management, energy policies, etc. Previously pro-Kremlin disinformation claimed that in exchange for IMF loans Kyiv will carry out the genocide of Ukrainians, that Ukrainians will be turned into the cheap labour force, and that Ukraine spends half of its budget to pay debts.
