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.
