Summary of Disinformation

There was a coup d’etat in Ukraine, and Russia merely expressed its point of view.

Disproof

Democratic, competitive and generally well-organised presidential and parliamentary elections were held in 2014 and local elections in 2015. The EU welcomed this progress. The OSCE, which observed all these elections on the ground, characterised the Presidential elections as showing the "clear resolve of the authorities to hold what was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and with a respect for fundamental freedoms." // Illegal annexation, violation of borders and military aggression is not "expressing a point of view".
