DISINFO: US forced Kyiv to falsify the results of the Ukrainian presidential election in 2014
In 2014, the US ambassador to Ukraine Jeffrey Payet forced Kyiv to falsify the results of the presidential election and declare Petro Poroshenko as the president of Ukraine. Poroshenko received 40% of votes, but Payet asked to announce publicly 62%.
No evidence given. On election day in 2014 more than 1,200 observers from 49 countries were reporting across Ukraine. International Election Observation Mission (IEOM) concluded on 26 May 2014 that the early presidential election in this country “was characterized by high voter turnout and the clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms in the vast majority of the country. This was despite the hostile security environment in two eastern regions and the increasing attempts to derail the process by armed groups in these parts of the country."
