Europe and the United States are not ready to fully cooperate with Ukraine, but only want to use it as a market for their products. Ukraine abandoned the Russian market, where it supplied its goods until 2014. At the same time, the turn towards the West did not open European markets for Ukrainian products, and the Europeans only allowed Ukrainians to buy their goods.
About the meddling. The IRA [Internet Research Agency] does not exist. These are all falsifications of the foreign intelligence services, made after the shameful defeat of Hillary Clinton in the presidential elections. After all, there is no association of people about which they speak. In Russia, this is called falsification.
The OOO Internet Research Agency was established in St Petersburg on July 26, 2013 with a unique company's taxpayer number (Russian INN) 7805627478. On February 2, 2016, the IRA was indicted in the US. According to the indictment employees of IRA "knowingly and intentionally conspired with each other (...) to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the government through fraud and deceit for the purpose of interfering with the U.S. political and electoral processes, including the presidential election of 2016. (...) Defendants, posing as U.S. persons and creating false U.S. personas, operated social media pages and groups designed to attract U.S. audiences. These groups and pages, which addressed divisive U.S. political and social issues, falsely claimed to be controlled by U.S. activists when, in fact, they were controlled by Defendants." The IRA became publicly known as "the St Petersburg's troll factory" before the indictment in the US. In May 2015, its former employee Lyudmila Savchuk sued the company and publicly described its activity as the following: "Hundreds of people are employed. They work 24 hours a day, replacing each other in shifts, write thousands of comments, texts, posts on all social networks, on blogs. They draw pictures, record video blogs ... Their work is global, large-scale. And they do this not only for the Russian-speaking Internet, but also for English-speaking sites". Savchuk was followed by other employees who claimed they are "former trolls". The IRA is connected to other entities, such as US Really and the pretended "information agency" RIA FAN.
