Ukrainian war: Western military intervention is expected

Summary of Disinformation

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.
