Ukraine secretly cedes its borders to the European Union

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine secretly cedes its borders to the European Union.

Ukraine’s border service fully obeys FRONTEX. Ukrainian passengers at the Kyiv and Odesa airports are screened by EU border guards. European border guards don’t trust their Ukrainian colleagues and have decided to check the quality of work in person.

On the other hand, the invasion of a new wave of migrants from Ukraine is becoming a big problem in Europe. In order to prevent the subsequent collapse of the eurozone in a context of rising anti-immigrant sentiments, the European structures decided to stop potential criminals before they cross the border.

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukrainian statehood.

According to Stop Fake, the spokesperson of the European Union Border Assistance Mission Ronan Goggin informed that currently Ukraine and the EU are working to harmonize border control, customs and trade standards and procedures with those in EU member states. The EU provides Ukraine with expert assistance and is not involved in the direct implementation of border functions.
