Disinfo: Ukraine to become nuclear waste dump


Foreign companies will soon be dumping their nuclear waste in Ukraine, the country will be turned into a nuclear burial ground of Europe and the world – the members of the Ukrainian parliament have put an end to the health of  Ukrainians.


Recurring disinformation about Ukraine .

On April 17 proposed legislation on improving the management of radioactive waste was given its first reading in the Ukrainian parliament. During parliamentary discussions of the proposed legislation Minister Semerak reported that most of the nuclear waste that needs to be stored in Ukraine was generated after the Chornobyl accident. He also emphasized that there is no nuclear waste from other countries being brought to Ukraine and would not be in the future as it is prohibited by law. The proposed new classification has absolutely no bearing on this.

According to Energoatom, the company that operates all four of Ukraine’s nuclear power stations, the disposal of nuclear waste can occur only in the country of origin.

Plans for ethnic cleansing in Latvia

American special operations forces will carry out ethnic cleansing of Latvians that are native Russian language speakers during a military exercise that begins on May 12.


No evidence given. No NATO exercise is scheduled to take place in Latvia during that time, nor is any U.S. Army Europe-led exercise. This is playing into a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative aimed at alienating the Russian speaking minority in Latvia euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=Latvia&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77163&date=,

Chemical weapon attacks in Syria are western provocations

Bashar al- Assad did not use chemical weapons and he did not deed it at all.

Father and daughter Skripals were double agents. The British government said that they had been ”poisoned” by Putin and ”died”, however it turns out that both feel wonderful, have no problems and nothing threatens them. Now, the British Special Services have decided to hide them. What is going on is shameful. How many times Russia should defeat the West? We all know why the West started this misfortune in Syria.
