Ukraine recognizes it cannot return Crimea

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine has admitted that it is incapable of returning Crimea to Kyiv’s rule. Ukraine is one step away from recognizing Crimea as Russian.


No evidence given. The disinformation stories originated in the deliberate falsification of comments by the Ukrainian Deputy Minister for the temporarily occupied territories Heorhiy Tuka during an appearance on Ukrainian television channel 112, where he stated that Ukraine currently could do very little to eject Moscow from Crimea but must continue to work through diplomatic and political channels to rectify the situation. Tuka goes on to say that Russia will at some point not only have to answer for Crimea’s illegal annexation, but will also have to return the peninsula. Further debunking by Stopfake.org.
