Disinfo: The US will win the elections in Ukraine


The US embassy will definitely win the elections in Ukraine. Zelensky, Poroshenko and Tymoshenko will all be good American puppets.

There will be no transparency in the election process, as nobody will see what will really happen in the Ukrainian polling stations.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy about the Ukrainian elections.

Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world but violated by Russia.

Democratic elections were held in Ukraine in 2014 and recognised by the world community. International observers will be present during the election.

Large-scale falsifications to take place during Ukrainian elections

Monstrous, giant scale falsifications will take place during Ukrainian elections. Whoever becomes president will be controlled by the West.

The West is actually supporting Poroshenko, it just does not want the fraud / falsifications to be public.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on Ukraine's elections and West's meddling.

The European Union supports Ukraine in ensuring a stable, prosperous and democratic future for all its citizens. Democratic elections were held in Ukraine in 2014 observed and recognised by the world community.

NATO destroyed FRY because it was preventing the Western Balkans to join the EU

Pro-Russian Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) was preventing the Western Balkans to join the EU and represented an obstacle for US’ plans on the Trans Adriatic Pipeline. This is the reason of NATO’s aggression against FRY.


No evidence given. The primary purpose of the campaign was to end violence and repression and force Milosevic to withdraw his military, police and para-military forces from Kosovo (see NATO statement from 1999).

At the North Atlantic Council meeting on April 12, 1999, NATO expressed support for the "political aims of the international community: a peaceful, multi-ethnic and democratic Kosovo in which all its people can live in security and enjoy universal human rights and freedoms on an equal basis".

Kyiv was never interested in a peaceful solution of the conflict in Donbas

Kyiv never had any interest in reaching a peaceful settlement on the conflict in Eastern Ukraine. The plans for the so called Anti-Terrorist Operation in Donbas were set up on 29 April 2014, before the conflict even started. This proves that already in April 2014, Kyiv was aiming for a military solution of the conflict. This was disclosed at a press conference by Vasiliy Prozorov, a defecting ex-officer of Ukraine’s State Security Services.
