EU wants to ensure Ukraine will continue the war with Russia

Germany, Poland and EU bureaucracy are not interested in calming down the current power in Ukraine. [The EU] prepared and persecuted them, set them on Russia for this very purpose. — All this has been prepared to ensure that Ukraine stays at war with Russia.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the war in Ukraine.

There was no coup in Ukraine four years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence.

“Cold” riots throughout Ukraine

Ukraine is on the verge of a social explosion. The cold war with its own population took hundreds of people to the streets. The country is freezing due to lack of hot water and heat.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukrainian disintegration.

Distorting and amplifying an issue which happened only in some localities when they were facing problems with the heating system, it did not happen all over Ukraine.
