Petro Poroshenko (“the Fuhrer”) and Mikheil Saakashvili have been appointed by the US.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. Ukraine's President Poroshenko was elected on 25 May with a clear majority in a vote which the OSCE characterized as showing 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" (bit.ly/1Tdu8Qw), . Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was appointed governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region by the President of Ukraine.
