The West and Ukrainian elites would benefit from the death of Petro Poroshenko

Summary of Disinformation

Poroshenko’s disappearance, and indeed his death, would be beneficial for the West and Ukrainian elites, because Russia would be the first to blame. That would create an opportunity for the West and Ukrainian elites to shape the election outcome according to their interests and deepen the divide between Russia and Ukraine.


Conspiracy theory. Consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives on Petro Poroshenko and elections in Ukraine.
