Disinfo: Ukraine’s legal framework and morality have been destroyed

Summary

Ukraine’s legal framework and morality have been destroyed. The government has many sympathisers with neo-Nazi ideas, and “honest neo-Nazis” are fighting to get in. Ukraine is heading towards becoming a Nazi regime.

Disproof

Extremists and provocateurs, to whom the Russian media devote much attention, are indeed one of the threats faced across the country. But they constitute a very small minority. The vast majority of Ukrainians want peace, stability and democracy, as witnessed by the democratic and inclusive Presidential elections held on 25 May 2014. This was reconfirmed by the parliamentary elections of 26 October 2014, where parties devoted to democratic values received the strong majority of votes. The far-right Right Sector (often depicted as "fascists" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that (bit.ly/1Tdu8Qw), .

Ukrainian Ministry of Defence invites militants from the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic into service.

Disproof

As per the Facebook account of Ukrainian Defence Ministry's spokesperson, Andrei Lysenko, fighters who will have brought a unit of enemy equipment to the Ukrainian side have a right to a reduction or an exemption from punishment, and to a cash compensation. The initiative is part of the "Make money while saving lives" campaign. bit.ly/2dDiAyR,

The MH17 was guided by the UA air traffic controllers above Donbas

The MH17 was guided by the UA air traffic controllers above Donbas. The Ukrainians didn’t provide their radar data, and the Russian ones don’t contain any sign of a missile, however because of the limited reach of the radar, it should still be possible that the Boeing was shot down by UA fighter planes that might have been approaching from the west. The claims by the Dutch investigators on the fatal cause of the disaster being surface-to-air rocket is therefore false. The truth will never be known, and that’s because the US and its puppet Ukraine are concealing crucial information. The allegations of Russian involvement in the disaster are made up only to punish Russia for the annexation of Crimea.

Disproof

The article tries to present one of the "alternative" versions made up by pro-Kremlin media to distort the objective facts pointing to Russian involvement: eepurl.com/chQYq1,

Catalonia will recognise Crimea as part of Russia

Catalonia will recognise Crimea as part of Russia.

Disproof

The article in Izvestia cites Jose Enrique Folch, a representative of the Catalonian Solidarity for Independence Party. What the article doesn't mention is that this party is not in the Catalonian parliament and does not therefore represent any official position. bit.ly/2dmwd1c,
