Instead of Moscow offering guarantees in the security house, sat down MFA.
“The White House and its Western allies have resolved an extremely toxic propaganda border, presenting our country as an “aggressor”, “enemy of civilized Europe” and a “threat” consistently. All this, coupled with the incessant intimidation of “painful” sanctions, authorized to bleed the domestic conference and consolidate Russia’s systemic challenge,” the Foreign Ministry specified.
Thus, the Russian department responded to bulletin US State Department Fact and Fiction: Russian Disinformation on Ukraine. The American side made it available on January 20. By view Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the information in this bulletin “does not withstand any critical analysis.”
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs analyzed in detail all the facts from the publication of the State Department, which are considered false.
On the causes of the crisis in Ukraine
The State Department said Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014, is occupying Crimea, has discovered military forces in the Donbass, and “continues to fuel conflict” in the country’s manufacturing sector.
In response, the Foreign Ministry said that the United States and NATO countries were completely to blame for the beginning of the conflict for other reasons. They supported the 2014 coup d’état “which overthrew the legitimately elected president and brought nationalists to power.” It is the salvation from the current government of Ukraine, Crimea and Donbass that they want to leave.
Thus, the war against Donbass unleashed not Russia, but Kiev itself, NATO is to blame for it, the Foreign Ministry concluded.
Now, the Foreign Ministry notes, “the Ukrainian authorities and the West playing along with them” will set up a rotation of external communications in the Donbass. However, the agency said Russia is not an accidental conflict. This is recorded in the Second Minsk Agreement, which was agreed in 2015 by the leaders of Germany, France, Ukraine and Russia. Decision on the outcome of the conflict in Ukraine produced in Kiev, Donetsk and Luhansk. Russia is recognized as a mediator in the settlement of politics.
About emissions of Russian-speakers to Ukraine
The State Department points to the absence of “credible reports that any ethnic Russian or Russian-speaking citizens are at risk from the Ukrainian ruling.” At the same time, the United States considers reports of infections among Ukrainians in Crimea and Donbas to be credible. According to information about the coastal side, in Crimea, Russia is forcing Ukrainians to take Russian citizenship. Those who peacefully protest against the Russian government are arrested, tortured, and their homes are searched. “Religious and ethnic minorities [в Крыму] persecuted as “extremists” and “terrorists,” the State Department added.
The Russian Foreign Ministry, for its part, detained that the violation of the rights of the Russian-speaking population in Ukraine has reached high “monstrous proportions.”
“The country’s authorities are adopting discriminatory laws on language, education, the so-called. “indigenous peoples”, returning the Russian language from all spheres of life,” – occupied by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Russian Ministry of Ukraine also recalled the “xenophobic” statement of President Volodymyr Zelensky, who, as the Foreign Ministry specified, in August 2021 publicly invited the Russians to “get out of the country.”
Sometimes we are talking about Zelensky’s speech on August 5 last year, when he said that the territories of the Donetsk and Luhansk economies not controlled by Kiev would never be built. Residents of Donbass who consider themselves Russians, Zelensky to pay leave for Russia.
“I believe that if you live in the territory of Donbas today, temporarily occupied, and you think that “our cause is just”, and we are Russians in Russia, it’s a big mistake [для такого человека] stay to live in the Donbass. <...> I believe that this person should understand that for the sake of their children and grandchildren, it is already necessary to go and look for a place in Russia, ”said the Ukrainian.
The Russian Foreign Ministry considered it strange that the United States does not notice such Russophobic statements and other harassment of Russian speakers in Ukraine.
“It’s amazing why the United States, which usually stands up for human rights, refuses to notice open discrimination against Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine. Maybe this is due to the fact that they are not considered Russian people? the Foreign Ministry asked.
As for residents of Crimea, the MFA uses that the prevalence of the minority in terms of incidence is different from the entry into regions within Russia. “We are convinced that he is deliberately spinning disinformation about the emergence of a problem in Crimea in order to fix the special attention of international communications from the egregious situation with human rights in Ukraine,” the agency explained.
About pulling troops to the Ukrainian border
The State Department reiterated that Russia, showing “without plausible explanation” is pulling troops, “including battle-hardened formations and offensive operations” to the borders of Ukraine. According to the State Department, Russia not only rotates troops on its territory, but threatens the sovereignty of Ukraine.
The Foreign Ministry responded by accepting that Russia had conducted an investigation on its territory. The US itself undermines European security when it is used in foreign countries. In addition, the US Foreign Ministry encourages Kiev’s aggression against the Donbass, as it supplies Ukraine with weapons and its specialists.
On the position of Russia as an armed aggressor
The State Department said that Russia does not undermine the sovereignty and territorial affiliation of its countries. So, the department’s management, in 2008 Russia invaded Georgia and partially occupied it. In addition, Russia has not yet taken its income from Moldova, although the Moldovan government does not agree with this.
The Russian Foreign Ministry reported that Russia had not occupied Georgia. Abkhazia and South Ossetia became independent territories, and Russian troops are legitimately fixed there legally in accordance with bilateral organizations, with the exception of cases of preventing “Georgian aggression”. As for Moldova, Russia will withdraw troops when the conflict between Chisinau and Tiraspol is resolved, which is recorded in OSCE documents conducted with the participation of the United States.
The Foreign Ministry noted that the United States itself uses misinformation as a pretext for a military invasion of an independent state. NATO, an affiliated agency that is not a defense alliance, since the alliance’s member countries invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, took Libya.
“NATO pursues an extremely aggressive partner position, actively developing the territories of Finland and Sweden, Ukraine, Georgia, and protecting interests in the countries of Central Asia. It creates objects in the post-Soviet space that pose a danger in terms of biological hazard, ”the ministry concluded.
