Ukraine is ruled by external forces

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine is governed by the interests of other forces: Russian, American and European.


No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the EU and US relations with Ukraine.

Ukraine is an independent, sovereign state. No country is controlling Ukraine. The EU-Ukraine and US-Ukraine relations are built on the basis of equality, freedom, and independence. Ukraine builds its relations with other countries in accordance with the requirements of international law.

In June 2014, EU and Ukraine signed An Association Agreement, including a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), which promotes deeper political ties, stronger economic links and the respect for common values.

The current government in Ukraine was elected following elections held in 2014, which were recognised as legal and democratic by the observers. The Presidential elections were "largely in line with international commitments and fundamental freedoms," ODIHR's report states.
