Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Ukrainian elections. See here for the summary of disinformation around presidential elections in Ukraine.

The presidential election in Ukraine was competitive and held with respect for fundamental freedoms, the international observers concluded in a preliminary statement published after the second round of elections.

Rebecca Harms, Head of the delegation from the European Parliament for the second round of elections, said: “I would like to congratulate the citizens of Ukraine for their deep commitment to democracy, demonstrated in competitive elections in which they had a free choice".

Moreover, the OSCE PA Election Observation Mission in Ukraine has declared that the first round of the presidential elections in Ukraine was competitive, and citizens had the opportunity to freely express their will. "We can admit that there were definitely competitive elections and the opportunity to vote for the candidate the citizens wanted to elect was provided", the OSCE Special Coordinator, OSCE PA Honorary President Ilkka Kanerva said.

Following the first round of the presidential elections in Ukraine, the same position was announced by the Head of the EP election observation mission for the first round of elections Dariusz Rosati. According to him, these elections were definitely competitive, since no candidate could be clearly identified as the likely winner.
