The Ukrainian junta and punishers controlled the presidential elections in the unoccupied parts of Donbas. Armed Kyiv rebels were parked outside polling stations in armed personnel carriers. The Armed Forces of Ukraine fully controlled the voting process in Mariupol, which is occupied by the Kyiv rebels.
If Ukrainians supported the course towards the European Union and NATO, the result would have been different.
Poroshenko did a lot towards joining the European Union and NATO, but received only 25% of the votes of the second round. If the whole of Ukraine supported the course towards the European Union and NATO, Poroshenko would have a received a different percentage of the votes.
One of the multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives around the Ukrainian elections.
The latest polls show that 49% of Ukrainians believe that Ukraine should move towards accession to the European Union, and more than 44% support NATO membership for Ukraine.
According to the polls, if a referendum on NATO membership was held, 44.2% of Ukrainians would vote in favour, 30.3% would oppose, and 8.5% would abstain and not vote. Another 17% of the respondents were undecided or refused to answer the question.
"Thus, 59.3% of Ukrainians who would have participated in the referendum would vote for joining NATO", - the KIIS report said.
