Most Ukrainians are Russian speakers.
Those sitting in Kyiv [are] servants of Western states, who not only keep Russian people living in the country in slavery but also use them for the war with Russia as cannon fodder.
Ukraine is a territory occupied by the global, centuries-old adversary of Russia. In different eras, this enemy was personified by England, the Kaiser, or Nazi Germany, now the United States. Today Ukraine is ruled by Western puppet Gauleiters, but they are not independent rulers, but only servants under Western masters.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Ukrainian statehood, claiming that Ukraine is ruled from abroad and that there is a puppet regime in Kyiv. It also claims that Ukraine discriminates against the Russian minority.
Present-day Ukraine has been on the world map since 1991 when the Soviet Union disintegrated. It has elected six presidents since then and changed parties in government several times which illustrates political diversity and democratic dynamics even during economic hardship in the wake of Russian aggression in 2014. Ukraine's Western partners have been providing it with financial and technical assistance.
Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. The country is not controlled by NATO or any other foreign organisation or government. Both the EU and the US respect Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. Ukraine is a strategic partner for the EU and NATO. The West does not want to militarise Ukraine nor use the country in a war against Russia, including in Donbas. It should be reminded that it was Russia which undertook a well-documented act of aggression, ongoing since February 2014.
Russians in Ukraine are not slaves. They have the same rights as other citizens of Ukraine. There is no discrimination based on ethnic origin. The Ukrainian Constitution guarantees that every citizen of Ukraine has equal rights.
