Summary

The process of disintegration has already begun in Ukraine: Transcacarpathia oblast council is demanding autonomy. // The US has refused to continue supporting president Poroshenko. // Ukrainians are part of the Russian world. // There was coup in Kyiv.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The Transcarpathian regional council has dismissed this claim as a fake (bit.ly/1SHO4Ls), . // The United States is firmly committed to supporting Ukraine as it works to establish security and stability, respond to humanitarian and reconstruction needs, conduct democratic elections and carry out constitutional reforms, restore its economy, and combat corruption (1.usa.gov/1qCWSfd), . // Ukraine is a sovereign nation. // Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), .

The current government of Ukraine came to power in a coup against the state.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), . The Yanukovych government
lost its legitimacy following the brutal crackdown it ordered
on peaceful protesters (bit.ly/1Tl9X7W), . The current government is fully legitimate.

Ukraine is part of the Russian world and Russia and will never be an independent nation.

Disproof

Repeating an already debunked myth. Ukraine is a sovereign nation and has made its own sovereign choices.

The Panama Papers Scandal is a provocation against Russia and demonstrates Western Russophobia.
