Ukrainian war: Western military intervention is expected

Summary

According to the Donetsk People’s Republic’s scouts, the 79th Ukrainian “offensive airborne division” has been deployed in the conflict area in the Donbas. The “Azov group is officially Ukraine’s citizens’ guard unit, is engaged in military drills training them for urban warfare” – writes Világyfigyelő. The article claims that Ukrainians deployed a large number of troops to Urzuf, and high-ranking American and Canadian delegations arrived to the HQ of the “Ukrainian Vostok Batallion”. According to the article, the DPR “cannot exclude the possibility that a foreign army will also take part in the planned attacks.” The DPR’s news wire agency claims that the whole operation would be managed by the US and Canada (meaning NATO).

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about the West's involvement in the Ukrainian conflict. There are no credible sources reporting that this would be the case.

US is not supporting Crimea’s return to Ukraine

US refused to support Crimea’s return to Ukraine. Crimea is not Ukraine and Kyiv has no chance to get it back.

Disproof

According to the official position of the U.S. Department of State, the United States refuses to recognize "the Kremlin’s claims of sovereignty over territory seized by force in contravention of international law". It "rejects Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored".

New chemical attack to be staged by the White Helmets in Idlib

In Syria, preparations are under way for a “provocation” in Idlib, which, will be carried out to justify a US cruise missile attack on Assad’s regime. Assad does not have chemical weapons, but now the US is ready to return them to Syria, use them and then . The chemicals have already been delivered to rebel fighters in Idlib in order to stage the chemical attack.  White Helmets are planning the provocation. They have already abducted 44 children to use them for realisation of this staged chemical attack.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on White Helmets and chemical attacks in Syria. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77488&date=, euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=syria&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77353&date=,

Earlier, pro-Kremlin disinformation has claimed that both the 2017 attack in Khan Sheikhoun and 2018 in Douma were faked. UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun. On April 10 2018 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
