Fake: Armenia Resumes Flights to Crimea

Last week Russian media launched a wave of fake stories claiming that Armenia and the Russian occupying forces of Crimea agreed to resume flights between the annexed Ukrainian peninsula and the Armenian capital Yerevan. Citing Alexei Chernyak, the chairman of the Crimean parliament’s tourism committee Komsomolskaya Pravda claims that Pegas Fly, a Russian airline based in Krasnoyarsk, has received permission to operate seven flights a week on the Simferopol-Yerevan route.

Fake: UN Recognized that Crimea is Russian

Russia brought a member of Crimea’s occupying authority to the 12th session of the United Nations Forum on Minority Issues held in Geneva last November and used his presence there to claim the UN recognized that Crimea is Russia. The claim is patently fake, as no such recognition has taken place and is highly unlikely that it ever will, as one of the most recent UN resolution calls for the

Fake: Czech President Recognizes Crimea as Part of Russia

A number of Russian and Ukrainian media reported that Czech President Milos Zeman publicly recognized Crimea as part of Russia and had invited pro-Kremlin Crimean Tatars to an official Independence Day event in Prague.

Ukrainians from different countries are calling for the lifting of sanctions against Crimea, several Russian media outlets declared last week. 15 representatives of Ukrainian emigres from various countries announced that unification of the peninsula with Russia must be recognized, Komsomolskaya Pravda claimed. Not one organization representing the Ukrainian diaspora has made such a claim, quite the contrary, Ukrainian emigres speak with one voice about Russia’s illegal occupation of Crimea and

Poklonskaya suggests moving UN HQ to Crimea to end annexation “fairy tale”

Don’t mention Crimea!

By EU vs Disinfo The facts about Crimea’s annexation are now a taboo in Russia and subject to censorship. When the Russian version of Israeli author Yuval Noah Harari’s book 21 Lessons for the 21st Century was published in Moscow earlier this summer, references to the invasion of Crimea and the disinformation campaign around it had to be replaced with examples that were unrelated to Russia and Ukraine.
