American curators of Zelensky demand Ukraine support US anti-Russian course

Summary of Disinformation

The US Congress gave new instructions for the work of the new president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.  American curators demand that Ukraine support the country’s anti-Russian course and declare that they will help Volodymyr Zelenskyi in this matter.

Disproof

The statement that Ukraine is controlled by "American curators" is one of the most common narratives of Russian propaganda.

The US Congress did not make such statements and did not give any instructions to Ukraine regarding the country's domestic or foreign policy.  The Russian media manipulated information that the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives of the US Congress held open hearings on the topic of countering Russian aggression.

As a result of the event, a number of statements were made, which stated that the United States intends to continue to support Ukraine in resisting Russian aggression.  The Committee said that the United States must demonstrate strong support for Ukraine, increase political, diplomatic and military-technical assistance in the fight against Russian aggression.

Also during the meeting, US experts stressed that democratic and free presidential elections were held in Ukraine, and the newly elected head of state will face important tasks: to continue anti-corruption reforms, ensure political stability and economic well-being of the country.
