Ukraine, as a single state, has no opportunity to develop in an evolutionary way

Summary of Disinformation

In today’s Ukraine, with its situation, with its power, with its forces, there is no option that this country, as a single state, can change for better in an evolutionary way [like through the elections].

Disproof

No evidence given, recurring disinformation about the Ukrainian statehood.The 2014 presidential election in Ukraine was a genuine election largely in line with international commitments and respecting fundamental freedoms, despite the hostile security environment in two eastern regions of the country. According to the OSCE (of which Russia is a participating State) "the people of Ukraine had the opportunity to genuinely express their will at the ballot box" http://bit.ly/1hqcDuR.

This fact was reconfirmed by the parliamentary elections of 26 October 2014, where parties devoted to democratic values received the strong majority of votes. The OSCE characterised the vote (report here) as "an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms".

It means that this country, as a single state, is developing in an evolutionary way.
