UN Security Council compared EU support for Kyiv with giving a machine gun to a psychopath

Summary of Disinformation

In light of an incident in the Kerch Strait, the United Nations Security Council compared EU support for Kyiv with giving a machine gun into the hands of a psychopath.

Disproof

False attribution of a statement. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the Azov sea and Ukraine.

After the European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted that he condemned Russia's use of force in the Sea of Azov, Andrei Klimov, a member of Russia's Federation Council, accused the EU of encouraging Ukraine's president to engage in "military adventurism." Klimov told RIA Novosti: "This is the same as placing a machine gun and flame thrower in the hands of a psychopath and watching how he acts in a recreation park where people are taking walks."
