Ukrainian president is a war criminal

Summary of Disinformation

Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko is a war criminal.

(Context: Message by a commentator during a talk show devoted to depict how Ukraine supports Nazis)

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine supporting Nazism.

It was Russia that provoked a war in East of Ukraine.

The Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has stated that "the information available suggests that the situation within the territory of Crimea and Sevastopol amounts to an international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict began at the latest on 26 February when the Russian Federation deployed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian Government". https://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/otp/161114-otp-rep-PE_ENG.pdf
