The regime of President Poroshenko is controlled by Washington, as it is proved by the decision of President Poroshenko to appoint Ms. Yaresko, an American citizen, to the Ministry of Finance. Ukraine cannot be a united country as it is deeply divided between a pro-­Russian and pro-­European regions.

Disproof

Appointing an American citizen anywhere does not prove a regime is controlled by Americans. Moreover, Ms.Yaresko is a Ukrainian citizen. Ukraine has proved it can be a united country before Russian military aggression.
