Ukraine is a Western tool of anti-Russian policy

Summary of Disinformation

The West has been using Ukraine as a tool of its anti-Russian policy for a long time. In this respect, the US has achieved a number of successes. The Ukrainian state powers are under external control and its anti-Russian foreign policy course has been set. Furthermore, considerable losses for the Russian economy were inflicted through Western sanctions, difficulties with transit, and the disruption of technological ties between Russia and Ukraine, among other things. The US will do its best to maintain control over Kyiv to ensure the stability of the Ukrainian dictatorship and to preserve Ukraine’s anti-Russian foreign policy.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about alleged anti-Russian projects in the West and Ukraine's alleged hyper-dependence on its Western partners. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Ukraine and Belarus are seen by the West as anti-Russia projects.

Ukraine's current foreign policy towards Russia is not a result of western anti-Russian strategy but of Russia's aggression against Ukraine, including its annexation of Crimea and the Russian military presence in Donbas.

Ukraine is a sovereign and independent state with a democratically-elected president and parliament. The EU and US support the democratic development of Ukraine in accordance with the UN Charter’s principles of non-interference into internal affairs and respect towards territorial integrity and political independence.

Relations between Ukraine and the EU are based, inter alia, on the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement, which recognises and reaffirms independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of borders.

NATO’s goal is to support a sovereign, independent, and stable Ukraine that is committed to democracy and rule of law. The alliance provides Ukraine with comprehensive support in the security and defence sector.
