Ukraine should become part of Russia through a referendum

Summary of Disinformation

The whole Ukraine should become part of Russia through a referendum, since it is an artificial entity created by Lenin, Stalin and Khrushchev. All the present-day lands of Ukraine were historically part of Russia, and the “partition” of the USSR in 1991 was “illegal.”

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about Ukraine's statehood and Ukrainian nation, aimed at questioning the country's integrity and weakening its image. Previously pro-Kremlin media stated that Ukrainian country and language are artificial, that Ukraine is an artificial construct and Ukraine is an artificially created structure.
