DISINFO: De facto president of Ukraine is a mid-level clerk in the US State Department

SUMMARY

Not for a single day has Poroshenko been the president of Ukraine. And it makes absolutely no difference who Ukrainians vote for. De facto president of Ukraine is a mid-level clerk in the US State Department, who fully controls the politics of Ukraine.

RESPONSE

Petro Poroshenko is the president of Ukraine. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the lack of Ukrainian statehood and US control over it.
