The U.S sponsored the campaign of Petro Poroshenko

Summary of Disinformation

The second round of Ukrainian elections will be won by the one who is told to win. It all depends on the United States, who invested a lot of money in Poroshenko’s campaign.


Recurring unfounded pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory about the Ukrainian elections.

On March 25, the National Agency on Corruption Prevention completed the analysis of interim financial reports on the receipt and use of the election campaign funds by candidates for the post of the President of Ukraine. The report declares that Petro Poroshenko's election campaign funds are credited exceptionally from his election fund’s accumulation account.
