Disinfo: The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine impedes the implementation of the Minsk agreements in the Donbas

Summary

The new president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, should dissolve the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, because the deputies of the current convocation are preventing Zelenskyi from fulfilling the Minsk agreements. Russian mercenaries in Donbas do not violate international agreements and adhere to the Minsk agreements, unlike Kyiv.

Disproof

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is not responsible for violations of the Minsk Agreements because Russian mercenaries in the occupied Donbas violate international agreements by attacking the Ukrainian army on a daily basis.  According to a report by the OSCE monitoring mission, in the first quarter of 2019, more than 83,000 cease-fire violations were recorded in Donbas.

In addition, Russia and the "LDNR" militants refuse Ukraine’s proposals on the exchange of prisoners.  Kyiv has repeatedly stated that Russia deliberately delays the process of exchanging prisoners, using Ukrainian citizens as a lever to pressure Ukrainian authorities.  The last such exchange between Ukraine and Russia occurred at the end of December 2017.  Since then, Russia has rejected any proposals from the Ukrainian side.

USA might change its name to Socialist States of America

According to a survey, performed by the Gallup institute, 43 per cent of Americans have a positive view on Socialism. 44 per cent of the Americans born between 1980 and 1990 want to live under Socialism. This is because of a rapid decay of moral standards and economy. Of course the global elites are attempting to curb this development.  During the Presidential campaign of 2016, Hillary Clinton, representing the Globalist Elites, managed to use manipulation and violent acts to stop “Socialist” Bernie Sanders, who would have had real chances to compete against Donald Trump.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, presented without evidence.

Europeans start grasping Russia’s evidence for Ukraine’s responsibility for the MH17-disaster

More and more Europeans have begun to understand Ukraine’s role in the MH17-disaster. Europeans experts and public figures raise questions on why Ukraine’s guilt is ignored. Still, officials from the investigative team in the Netherlands refuse to comment the evidence, provided by Russian experts.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Flight MH17. Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on MH17.

The Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team has concluded that flight MH17 was shot down on 17 July 2014 by a missile of the 9M38 series, launched by a BUK-TELAR, from farmland in the vicinity of Pervomaiskiy (or: Pervomaiskyi). At that time, the area was controlled by pro-Russian fighters. The BUK-TELAR was brought in from the territory of the Russian Federation and subsequently, after having shot down flight MH-17, was taken back to the Russian Federation.

Business interests behind protests in Yekaterinburg

The protests against the construction of an Orthodox church in Yekaterinburg follow the same pattern as the Maidan movement in Ukraine. What is described as “popular protests” and the “voice of the people,” is nothing but the voice of the big business. The protests have nothing to do with the protection of ecology and the protection of democratic freedoms in Russia: pure commerce, nothing personal.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory without any evidence. A recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative, describing non-governmental organisations as a tool of industry and foreign intervention. Similar cases here and here.
