Disinfo: This Week’s Trend: Right-wing regime came to power in Kyiv

Summary

This Week’s Trend: Right-wing regime came to power in Kyiv. Along with the fascist and other extremist vigilantes with which it is allied, they have gravely extinguished political rights in Ukraine. Donbas and Crimea are today governed by elected and representative governments, though conditions of life remain harsh in Donbas.

Disproof

Right wing extremists have minimal support in Ukraine: bit.ly/1CfCl2E;, the "peoples republics" are not recognized by anyone but Russia and its proxies.
