Fake: Kyiv Uses Pentagon Help against Donbas Civilian Population

One of the Kremlin’s official mouthpieces RT featured an article earlier this month claiming that the Pentagon’s $250 million security assistance package for Ukraine amounted to “interference in the Donbas conflict which will lead to an increase in the number of victims, including among the civilian population”. This is yet another spin on Moscow’s disinformation narrative about the war in eastern Ukraine being an internal conflict and a civil war

Fake: Coronavirus Sent from Above as Ukraine’s Retribution for Donbas

The coronavirus is Ukraine’s retribution for the Donbas war sent from above, it is a reckoning for the country’s sins, claims the pro-Kremlin publication News Front. The European Union has closed its borders because of the coronavirus, leaving its partners to their own devices. By closing the Schengen zone borders they are spitting on Ukrainians and the current situation shows that the European dream of the Maydan Revolution does not

The law legalizes violence, confirms the country’s status as an illegal arms trafficking center, and calls for “licenses to kill”, Kremlin faithful outlets wail.

Fake: Ukraine Has Not Complying with Minsk Agreements for Five Years

Russian RT is once again spinning one of its favorite narratives about the Russian made war in eastern Ukraine – that Ukraine has not implemented any of the Minsk agreements, the hasty peace deal signed by Ukraine, the Russian Federation and the self-proclaimed Russian separatist Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics in 2014 and 2015. According to this narrative Ukraine is the guilty party, not interested in peace or fulfilling the

Fake: ‘Bloody Canadian Mercenaries’ Appear in Donbas

The police of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic announced on January 12 that they had seen Canadian mercenaries in Stanytsia Luhanska, a town in eastern Ukraine near the contact line between Ukrainian and Russian separatist controlled territory. “Ruthless Canadian mercenaries from private military companies have come to kill in Luhansk” declared the pro-Kremlin publication Russkaya Vesna – Russian Spring. These claims are not supported by any evidence and the OSCE
