Russia spreads false information claiming that the “conflict in Ukraine” is qualified as “non-international” in the MH17 case



Russian propaganda spreads false information according to which the Court of The Hague has qualified the “conflict in Ukraine” as non-international.

It is according to Center for the fight against disinformation in the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, reports Ukrinform.

In particular, Russian media reported that The Hague District Court qualified the “conflict in Ukraine” as non-international: “In announcing the decision in the MH17 crash case, the court ruled that it is was a non-international armed conflict in Ukraine.”

In fact, the watchdog points out, the court directly recognized the international nature of the conflict.

Furthermore, the permanent representative of the Russian Federation to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, claimed that “…the Ukrainian armed forces carried out a massive attack on the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia. They seem to have taken the recent misleading resolution of the IAEA Council as carte blanche to resume the bombing of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.”

However, the allegation is misinformation, the CCD points out.

Grigoriy Ordzhonikidze, adviser to the Russian Foreign Minister, asserted that “Ukrainians and the West use all UNESCO programs and mechanisms without exception to promote the ‘anti-Russian agenda’, including recognizing borscht as a dish of Ukrainian origin.

CCD warned that the allegation is manipulative.

As reported by Ukrinform, the Netherlands summoned the Russian ambassador to demand an explanation regarding the reprehensible reaction to the verdict in the MH17 case.
