Disinfo: Ukraine became a colony to the US after the successful colour revolution of Euromaidan

Summary

Euromaidan in Kyiv was a successful colour revolution with the support of US politicians. After that, both the internal and external politics of the country were governed by the Americans with the leadership of Joe Biden – Ukraine became a colony to the US.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine, which is often claimed to be under external control from the US, NATO, the EU, or IMF consistent with the pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives framing popular protests as Western-led colour revolutions. No evidence is given.

Ukraine is a sovereign state. The US or its political leaders, either from the Democratic or the Republican party, do not control Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, confirmed by the resolutions of the United Nations, but violated by Russia.

The relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries. The US recognised Ukraine as an independent state on 25 December 1991. Since then, Washington has been working closely with Ukraine, directing its assistance to support the democratic development of the country and helping Ukraine to withstand Russian aggression. U.S. policy has since been centred on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous, and free Ukraine more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures.

See other disinformation cases alleging that Ukraine is under external control: that the US has taken Ukraine under external control; that neo-Bandera's Ukraine is under the US and NATO control; that Ukraine is under US control; that US Embassy controls decisions taken in Ukraine; or that US and IMF define and control political appointments in Ukraine.

Turkey and Ukraine are at war with the residents of Crimea

Ankara, together with Kyiv, is waging a war against the inhabitants of Crimea in general and the Crimean Tatars in particular.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea. Ukraine and Turkey do not wage war against the residents of Crimea. Turkey supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine, including its sovereignty over Crimea. See more disinformation cases regarding Crimea in our database, like claims that reunification with Russia paved the way for Tatar's language in Crimea, that Turkey considers Crimea to be Turkish, that Ukraine buried the main waterway of Crimea - the North Crimean canal or that Ukraine has been barbarically plundering Crimea for 23 years.

NEXTA is the Polish provocative Telegram channel

NEXTA is the Polish provocative Telegram channel.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the protests in Belarus after the presidential elections in 2020.

NEXTA is not Polish, but the Telegram channel from the Belarusian opposition, created by Stepan Putilo - a Belarusian journalist, blogger and TV presenter. Putilo is from Belarus and studied in Poland. Several years before the presidential elections this channel was "about Belarusian realities, information about the life of officials and what they are trying to hide."
