The population of non-government controlled areas in Ukraine don’t see themselves as part of it any more

Summary of Disinformation

The population of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk republics has turned away from Ukraine, the people don’t see themselves as part of it any more.


A manipulative claim, part of a Pro-Kremlin narrative about the impossibility to reconnect the Russia-controlled regions to Ukraine.

According to a survey held by the Center for East European and International Studies (ZOiS) in 2017, more than half (56%) of the population of so-called self-proclaimed "republics" (LNR and DNR) see their future as part of Ukraine.
