Russia didn’t commit any war crime in Syria, contrary to what is stated in the report of the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Arab country published on March 2, 2020. The allegations of war crimes were made immediately after terrorists started their offensive against Syrian troops in Idlib, so no committee may get reliable information on what was going on on the ground. The report is unilateral, not objective and terrorist actions are not taken into account.
In an exclusive interview, a US citizen revealed the true state of things in Donbas despite CIA propaganda. He explained that [Ukrainian president Petro] Poroshenko was a US puppet, and that a foreign government came and carried out a coup in the presidential elections. The US wanted more influence in Ukraine because it wanted to stop the supply of Russian gas to Europe and to expand NATO along the Russian border. For this reason, the US interfered in Ukraine’s internal affairs and started a war in Eastern Ukraine. Donbas’ citizens had no alternative but to take up weapons in face of what was basically an invasion of their country.
The article summarises several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Ukraine, blaming the US and the West for the fall of President Viktor Yanukovych and labelling the protest movement that overthrew him as a coup, and denying any Russian responsibility for the outbreak of violence in Donbas.
The demonstrations against Yanukovych, which began in Kyiv in November 2013, called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan", were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with the president’s last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. When those protests were met with government-led police violence, they became massive, ultimately resulting in Yanukovych’s fall. There is zero evidence of any foreign implication behind the demonstrations. On the contrary, proof of Russia’s involvement in fomenting unrest in Eastern Ukraine and in creating a military conflict has been mounting since an early stage.
You can see other examples of disinformation narratives in Ukraine in our database, such as claims that the Maidan protests were a coup orchestrated by foreign secret services through neo-nazi groups aiming to bring oligarchs to power (and that the US has allegedly admitted it), that Russia is no part of Ukraine’s conflict, that it was the Ukrainians who downed the MH17 flight, or that there is no such a thing as a Ukrainian nation different from Russia.
