Summary of Disinformation

The main obstacle to the implementation of the Minsk agreements is the unwillingness of Kyiv’s authorities, who have come to power because of the coup, to start talking to the population of Donetsk and Lugansk.

Disproof

There was no coup in Kiev; in February 2014, the then Ukrainian president abandoned his functions and, in a situation of force majeure, the Rada appointed an acting president by a constitutional majority. The subsequent presidential elections of May 2015 were recognised as largely in line with international standards by OSCE/ODIHR.
