Ukraine is a failed state and will be split up

Summary of Disinformation

The country’s newly elected Jewish president and his team have proven that Ukraine is a failed state. The president and his team are led by the well-known Jewish oligarch. These individuals are actively participating in the collapse of the country. The recent presidential elections, results and further processes show that a new project has begun: the fragmentation of Ukraine.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's statehood and imminent collapse. Ukraine is not a failed state, contrary to the Kremlin's efforts to suggest otherwise.Several international institutions show that Ukraine’s economy has returned to growth after the recession of 2014-15 and accelerated in the first half of 2018. The real GDP growth for the whole of 2018 is now forecast at around 3.3%.

Furthermore, no evidence is given to support the speculative claim that newly elected president Zelenskyy and his team are involved in the collapse of the country. Disinformation about Ukraine's disintegration and collapse is a popular pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. Similar cases are here, here and here.

The EU is among the strongest advocates of Ukraine's sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity. In a joint letter, EU leaders stressed their support to the President Zelenskyy after elections. EC President Donald Tusk stated, after his meeting with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy:  "There can be no just Europe without an independent Ukraine. There can be no safe Europe without a safe Ukraine. To put it simply: there can be no Europe without Ukraine! Ukraine can count on the European Union, as always. We are and will remain your best friend and trusted ally".
