Ukraine is an anti-Russian state under Western control

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine is best at selling anti-Russian, Russophobic sentiments and mobilising anti-Russian feelings. By exercising this role, it is forgiven many sins [by the West] in its internal policy, economics and corruption. The only reason for this is that it must work against Russia.

Disproof

No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the West's strategy of encircling Russia and anti-Russian sentiments in the West.

Ukraine is a sovereign state, not controlled by any foreign government, and without any anti-Russian policy. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by almost the whole world, including the EU. The EU and the US work closely with Ukraine. Their relations are directed at improving their cooperation in all fields and are not orientated against Russia.

Furthermore, relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries. US policy is centered on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous, and free Ukraine more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures.
