Disinfo: Ukraine should become part of Russia through a referendum


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.”


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.

EU sanctions against Russia is a part of a plan to make Russia lose its sovereignty

EU sanctions against Russia are imposed as part of the pressure to make Russia lose its sovereignty.

If sanctions are on the EU’s to-do list, they will ask Kyiv to commit a provocation and then they will impose sanctions – supposedly as a reaction to Russia’s actions, but in reality, it is all pre-planned.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on sanctions. Accusing the West, including the EU, of orchestrating a provocation by Ukraine, is a classical pro-Kremlin narrative.

Since March 2014, the EU has progressively imposed restrictive measures against Russia. The measures were adopted in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and the deliberate destabilisation of Ukraine.

Europe is occupied by the US and has limited sovereignty

Europe is occupied by the US and has only limited sovereignty.

In the context of Venezuelan protests we see the same team playing for America. Germany, France, Poland, Estonia; they all wear same [football] shirt, just the numbers[on the shirt] are different.






Europe is not occupied by the US. Sovereignty of the EU member states is not limited. This is a classical pro-Kremlin narrative, trying to undermine sovereignty of the West.

The EU has condemned indiscriminate violence by the authorities in Venezuela and reiterated that the presidential elections last May in Venezuela were neither free, fair, nor credible and lacking democratic legitimacy. The EU called for the urgent holding of free, transparent and credible presidential elections in accordance with internationally democratic standards and the Venezuelan constitutional order.
