Disinfo: Viktor Yushchenko was poisoned by cosmetic procedures, other allegations are provocation by Ukraine


Since the Orange Revolution, Ukraine has been creating provocations against Russia, eg the poisoning of the third president of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko was part of these provocations. In reality, Yushchenko was poisoned by cosmetic procedures.


In 2009 the leading medical journal - The Lancet published a scientific paper by Swiss and Ukrainian researchers. According to this research, TTCD dioxin levels in Yushchenko`s blood were more than 50,000 times higher than normal. Also, the same research claims: “The dioxin used to poison Yushchenko could have been produced in numerous laboratories because it was a purified version that has no natural source”. www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140673609609120/abstract,


On September 6, 2004, after attending a dinner, Yushchenko fell gravely ill. Food poisoning was the first diagnosis made by Ukrainian doctors. But Yushchenko's health failed to improve, he suffered from chloracne, his face disfigured and he was barely able to walk and speak. On September 1, 2004 he was sent to Vienna's Rudolfinerhaus Clinic. Austrian doctors diagnosed his illness as acute pancreatitis due to a serious viral infection and chemical substances that are not normally found in food products. Test on dioxin showed that Yushchenko`s illness was caused by the high concentrations of dioxin is his blood, most likely orally administered.

The fascists war preparations against Russia are clearly visible

War preparations of fascists against Russia are clearly visible today, just as they were clearly visible in 1940. The US-led NATO is bringing its forces close to the Russian border. Romania, Poland, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, Turkey, Greece and Japan are not US neighbours, yet they are full of the fascist US-forces and its allies. The US’s goals are the same Hitler’s Germany had, namely world domination over the peoples of the Earth with its economic and military might.

Americans are transporting migrants to Europe on warships

The US Navy has started to transport migrants to Europe. This comes after the Italian government decided not to allow civil society organisation’s ships to dock at Italian ports.

Putin’s warning prevented Ukraine from launching an offensive

The Ukrainian military is cursing the Ukrainian leadership. They said that they were ready for an offensive, but then had to put down their arms right after this statement was made. So [Putin’s] warning … for Ukraine has worked.


During the direct line TV show, president Vladimir Putin's warned Kyiv of "very serious consequences for Ukrainian statehood" if it launched an offensive against pro-Russian fighters in the country’s east during the World Cup. www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-putin-ukraine/putin-warns-ukraine-against-military-action-in-east-during-world-cup-idUSKCN1J31G5,

The disinformation about Ukraine preparing a major offensive in the eastern Ukraine is coming from a party of the conflict and has been a recurring topic of pro-Kremlin disinformation for a long time: euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77110&date=,
