The IMF, with Comrade Soros and his group, are operating this channel of external control. The fact that they [Ukraine] agreed to a deal with them on the land [reform] and everything else […] is a very obvious illustration of colonial administration [being established].
Conspiracy theory. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative alleging that Ukraine is controlled by the IMF and people like George Soros. The other part of the disinformation is about the law on the land market, which has recently been adopted by the Verkhovna Rada. Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government; it is not controlled by the IMF or George Soros. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world, including the EU. You can find several disinformation cases on Ukraine being under foreign control. The claim that the adoption of the law on the land market is an illustration of foreign control is false. The law states that only Ukrainian citizens and companies registered in Ukraine and under Ukrainian law will be eligible to buy agricultural land in Ukraine. Other restrictions are prescribed by the law. See previous narratives alleging that George Soros will buy all banks and land in Ukraine.
