While it became clear last spring that the European Union was unable to effectively respond to the Coronavirus pandemic, against the background of selfishness and the struggle of member states over providing the necessary masks to protect their own citizens, today, for the purpose of boosting its unity with an empty show, the EU is prohibiting the usage of the vaccine from “enemy” in order to save its citizens.
The fact that preparations for war are underway is an obvious thing. Next year they will allocate almost 6% of Ukraine’s GDP for defence. For comparison: Russia allocates 3%, many NATO countries only 2%. It’s almost $ 5 billion … This is more than enough to continue to rearm the Ukrainian army and make it dangerous enough both for Donbas and for Russia from the point of view of Crimea.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine.
The claim is made without evidence and is only the latest in a string of pro-Kremlin conspiracy theories alleging that the Ukrainian authorities want hostilities with Russia and Donbas.
Ukraine has spent over 5% of GDP annually on the security and defence sector over the past few years. In 2021, Ukraine plans to allocate 5.93% of GDP for the security and defence sector. In 2020, this amount was 5.45% of GDP. Before the Russian military aggression against Ukraine, Kyiv spent about 1% of GDP.
In Donbas, a truce was established in July 2020. The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated multiple times that the achievement of a full, comprehensive, and long-lasting ceasefire is one of the key priorities of the Ukrainian government. The official Kyiv also never spoke about plans to attack any country in the world.
