The Security Service of Ukraine will verify the reports on MP Nadia Savchenko’s alleged instigation of the Ukrainian military to leave their defensive positions in Donbas in favor of taking part in a coup in Kyiv, according to SBU spox Olena Hitlyanska.



"The SBU will check the information on Savchenko inciting troops to a coup," she said. As UNIAN reported earlier, MP Tetiana Rychkova (BPP) on Friday said that Savchenko had incited Ukrainian troops to leave their positions in the ATO zone and head toward Kyiv "to overthrow the criminal government."

The deputy has also called on the Prosecutor General and the Security Service of Ukraine to open criminal proceedings against MP Savchenko. Adviser to Interior Minister Zorian Shkiryak later wrote on Facebook: "As it turned out, she [Savchenko] went there with an openly provocative aim and appeals [to the troops] to "put down their weapons and head from the frontline to Kyiv to overthrown the "criminal government."

Dutch Lawmakers Vote In Favor Of EU-Ukraine Deal

The Netherlands' lower house of parliament has voted for the ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, leaving a vote in the upper house -- the Dutch Senate -- as a final hurdle before the deal, which was signed in March 2014, finally can enter into force.

It has been expected that the House of Representatives would vote in favor of the deal, as the governing coalition enjoys a majority there.

The Senate vote is expected to take place only after the next month's parliamentary elections in the Netherlands on March 15, despite the fact that the composition of the Senate isn't affected by the general election.

The Netherlands is the only EU country that still hasn't ratified the Association Agreement with Ukraine after 61 percent voted against it in a citizen-driven referendum in the country in April 2016.

Although the result was consultative, the Dutch government decided to negotiate a legally binding supplement to the Association Agreement with the other 27 EU member states........

Glory to Ukraine: Viral video welcomes Trump in his own words (Video)

The Ukrainian television news service TSN has produced and shared a viral video welcoming U.S. President Donald Trump in his own words, according to tsn.ua.

The Ukrainian video has followed other countries' trendsetting introduction clips, first made by the Dutch "Zondag Met Lubach" TV show, which released its "The Netherlands Welcomes Trump in His Own Words" after the U.S. president's inauguration on January 20. "Unlike [a video produced] by Germans, Italians, Austrians and many others who have produced similar clips, our welcoming has become a song," TSN said. "Dear Mr. President, welcome to this introduction video about Ukraine. It is going to be a great video. It's gonna be absolutely fantastic," the song performed in a rapping style begins its narration.



"We stand against Russian aggression on the eastside," it continues about challenges faced by Ukraine. "No, they [terrorists from Russia] cannot beat us. Can't do it. Losers." A "politically sensitive" topic of languages in Ukraine, which is a favorite tool of Russian propagandists inciting language-based hatred, was also mentioned: "Russian is not even a real language. It's fake! It's a fake language." Then the video boasts the Ukrainian wall in Bucha, which is even "greater" than the Mexico wall, one of the commitments Trump undertook during his election campaign. "This is Bucha. The city near the capital. It's small, but it has a great, great wall that ex-officials and their relatives built to protect themselves. Protect from… not water, not animals but from common people. And they made those people pay for it. The tremendous wall. Nobody builds walls better than we do. You should keep in mind, thinking about Mexicans. Help us help you, OK?" the song goes on. The most popular theme about Ukraine – corruption – has also gotten into the song: "People tell us, very important people, they tell us we've got one of the highest levels of corruption in the whole world. It's just unbelievable!" It concludes: "We totally understand it's going to be America first. But can we just say: Ukraine second?".............

Russian military admits significant cyber-war effort - BBC

Russian authorities have admitted for the first time the scale of their information warfare effort, saying it was significantly expanded post-Cold War, according to BBC.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Russian "information troops" were involved in "intelligent, effective propaganda", but he did not reveal details about the team or its targets, BBC reported. The admission follows repeated allegations of cyberattacks against Western nations by the Russian state, while NATO is reported to be Moscow's top target. Speaking to Russian MPs, Mr Shoigu said "we have information troops who are much more effective and stronger than the former Soviet 'counter-propaganda' section". Keir Giles, an expert on the Russian military at the Chatham House think-tank, has warned that Russian "information warfare" occupies a wider sphere than the current Western focus on "cyber warriors" and hackers.

"The aim is to control information in whatever form it takes," he wrote in a NATO report called "The Next Phase of Russian Information Warfare".................
