Summary of Disinformation

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."
