Period/date: 6. March 2017

Debunk claim:

The reoccuring disinformation that Ukraine is ruled by nazis is disproven by the facts. The far-right Right Sector often depicted as “fascists” or nazis by pro-Kremlin outlets gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.2753/RUP1061-1940510502 // Miaistok is a notorious disinformation spreading outlet.
