US and Europe brought both Hitler and Poroshenko to power

Summary of Disinformation

US and European countries brought Hitler to power 80 years ago and now they brought Poroshenko, a person like Hitler, to power.

Disproof

No evidence given to prove the theory related to the role of the US and European states in the case of Hitler; Germany brought Hitler to power. As for Petro Poroshenko, there are no Nazis in the government nor in the parliament of Ukraine. Even the far-right ‘Right Sector’ (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter the parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not extremism or Nazism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that bit.ly/2dFFEdi
