Summary

Visa-free travel for Ukranians is useless since Ukrainians are anyway denied entry to Bulgaria.

Disproof

Disinformation about the new visa-free regime for Ukraine has been recurring since it came into effect. Bulgaria is a member country of the EU and Ukrainian citizens are able to travel there without visa for up to 90 days. The incident referred to had nothing to do with the new visa-free travel rules or with Bulgarian border guards, but rather, with the incompetence of one tour operator, who later published an apology on its Facebook page saying they had made a mistake. bit.ly/2tZ8Y7D,

NATO and the West planned to cut USSR into pieces…

NATO and the West planned to cut USSR into pieces and, after that, aimed to shrink Russia’s borders to the size of the historical Grand Duchy of Moscow.

Disproof

No evidence given. The end of the Cold War was a victory for the people of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, and opened the way to overcoming the division of Europe. At pathbreaking Summit meetings in the years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Russia played its part in building a new, inclusive European security architecture, including the Charter of Paris, the establishment of the OSCE, the creation of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, and the NATO-Russia Founding Act. Since the end of the Cold War, NATO reached out to Russia with a series of partnership initiatives, culminating in the foundation of the NATO-Russia Council in 2002. No other country has had such a privileged relationship with NATO. bit.ly/21G4hHE,
