Summary of Disinformation

The authorities in Ukraine are bandits and terrorists, much like the Islamic state.

Disproof

No evidence given for the claims, reoccuring disinformation. The 2014 presidential election in Ukraine was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and respecting fundamental freedoms, despite the hostile security environment in two eastern regions of the country. According to the OSCE (of which Russia is a participating State) "the people of Ukraine had the opportunity to genuinely express their will at the ballot box" bit.ly/1hqcDuR. Similarly, Ukraine’s local elections in October 2015 were competitive and generally showed respect for the democratic process bit.ly/1VUL9V5.
