Summary of Disinformation

Volunteers, often people with a shady past, are supplying weapons, ammunition, medicines and food to the Ukrainian army and getting rich in the process.

Disproof

The article focuses on well-known Ukrainian volunteer Yuriy Biriukov, who is currently an aide to Ukraine’s Defense Minister. Biriukov really was a businessman who owned companies, but he built those companies long before he began to do volunteer work. Responding to StopFake’s inquiry, Biriukov explained that he sold his companies in 2014. Further debunking at Stopfake bit.ly/2hVTiMV.
