The election in Ukraine is a race between neo-Nazis

Summary of Disinformation

The presidential elections in Ukraine have rightly been described as a race between three neo-Nazis, each more of a Russia-hating racist than the rest.

Whichever one of them wins, the United States and the entire NATO alliance are mortally committed to supporting an extremist, out-of-control and desperate failing regime that would not hesitate to pull America into a thermonuclear war for its own selfish ends.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on the elections in Ukraine, on Russophobia and nazism in Ukraine. None of the three leading presidential candidates proclaimed far right policies or beliefs and that the far right, nationalist candidate received 1.62% support.

According to the OSCE/ODIHR Election Observation Mission the election was competitive, voters had a broad choice and turned out in high numbers. Fundamental freedoms were generally respected. Read the preliminary statement by OSCE/ODIHR here.
