Petro Poroshenko has requested a phone interview with the New York Times in order to refute the claims of an article previously published in the NYT about Ukraine being a corrupt country.
The current government of Ukraine came to power in a coup against the state.
Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), . The Yanukovych government
lost its legitimacy following the brutal crackdown it ordered
on peaceful protesters (bit.ly/1Tl9X7W), . The current government is fully legitimate.
