The elections in Ukraine are controlled by the SBU

Summary of Disinformation

The elections in Ukraine are rigged. The IT Department of SBU, the State Security Service of Ukraine, is controlling the Ukrainian e-voting system, “Vybory”. A few weeks before the election, the staff of the IT Dept suddenly gets a big pay rise. The SBU is totally under President Poroshenko’s control, and all is done to secure his victory in the elections.
