Ukrainian diaspora has held a meeting in Crimea and signed a resolution calling on Ukrainians to unite with Russians in Crimea

Summary of Disinformation

The representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora from Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Bulgaria, Italy, Latvia, Poland and others have held their gathering in Crimea. They have signed a resolution calling on Ukrainians to unite with Russians in Crimea.

Disproof

No evidence provided that the participants would represent the Ukrainian diaspora. The recognised organisations of Ukrainians abroad have not declared their participation in the event. Bona fide Ukrainian diaspora organizations called the congress "a Russian serving disinformation exercise". Further debunking by Stopfake.org.
