DISINFO: In Ukraine, power is seized by Nazis
There is an opinion that in Ukraine an insignificant Nazi minority oppresses the overwhelmingly sane majority. This is not the case. This insignificant minority today became a Nazi majority and oppresses those who do not agree to turn into the same animals. They hate Russians living in Ukraine more and more. The process seems to be irreversible. They won.
A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Nazi and Russophobic Ukraine. The myth of Nazi-ruled Ukraine has been the cornerstone of Russian disinformation about the country since the very beginning of the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, when it was used to discredit the pro-European popular uprising in Kyiv and, subsequently, the broader pro-Western shift in Ukraine's foreign policy. Far-right groups enjoyed a very limited presence during the Euromaidan itself and had poor results in the 2014 presidential and parliamentary elections. The "Right Sector" candidate received 0.7% of the vote in the May 2014 presidential elections, and the party received 1.8% of the vote in the October 2014 parliamentary elections. In the 2019 election cycle, far-right candidates fell short of the 5% minimum guaranteeing entry into parliament. Likewise, Ukraine is not a Russophobic country as often claimed by the Kremlin media. It had to react to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the war in Donbas. However, Ukraine has not forbidden contact between citizens of Ukraine and Russia, as well as sports, cultural, scientific or other exchanges. The borders with Russia are open. There are still direct bus and train connections with Moscow and Saint-Petersburg. Read similar cases alleging that after Maidan, Ukraine was ruled by the Nazis, Nazis are in power in Ukraine, Ukrainian authorities introduce Nazi laws to oppress Russian speakers, and Ukraine is a Neo-Nazi state.
