Disinfo: US and its puppets fear the Donbas elections because they produce an independent world

Summary

US and its puppets like [Ukrainian president] Petro Poroshenko fear the [Donbas] elections because any electoral campaign produces an independent world. Kyiv and the US do not want the Donbas to have its own voice and representatives.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about US role in Ukraine.

The elections were held in Donbas, Ukraine, on 11 November by Russian-backed separatists and were not recognised by the international community. The elections were illegal under Ukrainian law, illegitimate and in violation of the Minsk Agreements.

The EU stated that "the announcement that so-called "elections" will be held in the so-called "Luhansk People's Republic" and "Donetsk People's Republic" on 11 November 2018 runs contrary to the spirit and letter of the Minsk agreements, which have specific provisions regarding the organisation of local elections in that region."

The European Union fully supports the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders.

See statements by the UK, France and Germany, and the US.

20 thousand armed migrants getting ready to break into the EU

About 20 thousand armed migrants from Pakistan, Iran, Morocco and other Middle East countries gathered at the border of Croatia with the EU, getting ready to break into the EU.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation narrative about migration crisis.

In fact, according to ARD, the UNHCR and the Austrian Interior Ministry explained that the 20,000 figure refers to the total number of migrants registered in Bosnia and Herzegovina so far in 2018, but the migrants were never all there at the same time. UNHCR says there are currently about 5,000 migrants in the country and has no information about migrants being allegedly all armed with knives.

Donbas elections: Western countries today are dictatorships, in Donbas there is pure democracy

The Western countries showed that they are enemies of democracy when they protested against the elections in the DNR and LNR. The Western countries today are dictatorships. A dictatorship of liberalism, military bloc of NATO and that is our main threat today. There is pure democracy here in Donbas.

///

The Donbas elections are a lesson of democracy for all of Europe. // The West needs to learn from DNR how to organise elections

///

The Minsk agreements contribute to holding open and transparent elections that DNR and LNR want to organise.

///

Donbas elections comply with all the international standards.
