DISINFO: Modern Ukraine was created as a country for death in the name of American interests


Modern Ukraine was not created as a country for a normal life, but as a place for death in the name of American interests directed against Russia.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Ukraine and its statehood, alleging that the country is abandoned and anti-Russian.

Ukraine is not abandoned and is not a training ground against Russia for the US.

Ukraine is a priority partner for the US. US assistance to Ukraine since 2014 totals over $3.7 billion, plus three $1 billion sovereign loan guarantees. For the financial year 2020, Congress has appropriated $698 million: $448 million for State/USAI programmes and $250 million for USAI, and $50 million for lethal assistance.

See a similar case: "For the US and Europe, Ukraine is just a training ground against Russia".
