DISINFO: Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko was the US appointee
The Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko, was appointed by the US administration at the time of President Obama, just as if Poroshenko were a US Ambassador to Ukraine. Hence, there is a bit of a clash over Ukraine between the Trump supporters and the State Department ones. The latter favour Poroshenko, while Trump doesn’t seem to care.
Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about Ukraine - US Relations. Petro Poroshenko was elected in a national election with several candidates. The OSCE/ODIHR Election Observation Mission’s Final Report “Ukraine early presidential election 25 May 2014” concluded that the election “was characterised 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”. A similar conclusion was made by The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE). It said in its report that the election was “largely in line with international commitments and which respected fundamental freedoms in the vast majority of the country, despite the hostile security environment in two eastern regions of the country”.
