Ukraine is puppet of the West in the geopolitical game against Russia

Summary of Disinformation

The West is not interested in the welfare of the Ukrainian people. Kyiv serves as a puppet in the geopolitical game against Russia.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation about the relationship between the West and Ukraine.

Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc. UNGA Resolution 68/262 also affirmed the General Assembly's commitment to the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.

The EU is helping Ukraine through various concrete means. Above all, the entry into force of the Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine on 1st of January 2016 offers duty free (for most products) access to the largest market in the world to Ukrainian companies; secondly, the EU has granted cheap and long term loans to Ukraine to help the country to stabilised its economy: 2,2 bn € have been disbursed already; the EU (whose Member States represent altogether the largest IMF shareholder) is strongly supporting the IMF loans and programmes which have helped to stabilise the economic situation in Ukraine and will continue to help the country to reform its economy. The EU is providing substantial budget support, technical assistance and loans to the businesses through the EIB.
