DISINFO: The current Ukrainian government is ruled by Poles and Americans

SUMMARY

Ukraine: the collapse of the state is getting closer. The current Ukrainian government, ruled by Poles and Americans, fueled by Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, has no influence on those who sit in the regions. The puppeteers who lead Zelensky and the rest of Ukraine’s rulers are controlled by certain clans.

RESPONSE

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine, lost sovereignty, undermining Ukrainian statehood, alleging that Ukraine is a puppet of the US and Poland.

Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. Ukraine does not receive orders from any foreign government, it is not controlled by any foreign government or organisation: not the USA, IMF, NATO, the West or George Soros. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world, including the EU.

The relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries. Washington is supporting the democratic changes in Ukraine. It is stressed that:

“U.S. Government assistance to Ukraine aims to support the development of a secure, democratic, prosperous, and free Ukraine, fully integrated into the Euro-Atlantic community”.

Poland was the first state to recognise Ukraine’s independence in 1991. Both states perceive each other as strategic partners.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that for the US and Europe, Ukraine is just a training ground against Russia; that the US longer controls Ukraine, UK does; that NATO establishes a colonial relationship with Ukraine disguised as partnership, that Ukraine is under obvious external control, or under US special protection.
