United States control both Ukrainian presidential candidates, the country will remain anti-Russian on US orders

Summary

Ukraine will remain an anti-Russian ram for the US regardless who of the two presidential candidates will win. Washington will demand a continuation of anti-Russian policies by Kyiv. Ukraine has come back to the state of ruin and risks turning into wild field in the medium term. Sooner or later Russia will have to re-colonise Ukraine to rid it from western influences.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about the Ukrainian elections and Ukrainian statehood.

Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are violated by Russia.

The fire at the Notre Dame of Paris occurs at a suitable moment for the French Government

The fire at the Notre Dame occurs at a very suitable moment for a France, torn into pieces by protests and even more for France’s government. It is still unknown what will be uncovered by the investigation. But unfortunately, in the modern world, one can really believe in coincidences.

Disproof

Hinting on conspiracies is an instrument often used by pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, suggesting "False Flag Operations" behind current event like the Skripal Case.

Only an alien can stop the war against the population and bring peace to Donbas

Ukrainian army military actions against the population of South-Eastern Ukraine started in April 2014. Neither of the two presidential candidates will likely resolve the Donbas conflict. The anti-terrorist operation in Eastern Ukraine has turned into the symbol of Ukraine’s existence. In this light, peace in Donbas can only be guaranteed by an alien accidentally elected as a president.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the war in Donbass, which does not mention the well documented Russian involvement, which violated Ukraine's territorial integrity, including by supporting and arming separatist groups in Eastern Ukraine. Legally the term 'Anti-Terrorist Operation' was replaced with the Joint Forces Operation in April 2018.

As for the Minsk agreements, Kyiv repeatedly stated that only Minsk agreements can stop the war and ensure peace in this region. "In conclusion, I wish to reiterate that Ukraine remains committed to the peaceful resolution of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, started by Russia, which includes full implementation of the Minsk agreements in their entirety and de‑occupation of Crimea", the Statement by the delegation of Ukraine to the International Organizations in Vienna on 13 November 2018 read.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative denying Russia's interference in US election.
