Ukraine is the West’s "Anti-Russia" project

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine is an anti-Russian project of the West. It doesn’t matter who the president is – Zelenskyy or Poroshenko. The leadership of this country is forced to conduct an anti-Russian policy, since the state is fed by the West. Ukraine’s mission is to create problems along the entire perimeter of Russia’s borders. Even if Ukraine, theoretically, starts persecuting Jews, stops recognising the Holocaust, the West will close its eyes to this. It will continue as long as it plays the role dictated by the Western geopolitical centres. While the geopolitical role of Ukraine will satisfy the West, everything will be allowed to it.

Disproof

This is recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation conspiracy narrative about Ukraine, Ukraine's hyper-dependence on the West , and Ukraine as an anti-Russian project.

In 1991 Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union.The Declaration of State Sovereignty of Ukraine was adopted on July 16, 1990 Ukraine is recognised in international law as a sovereign nation state, with its own flag, nationality, language etc. 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 on the Ukraine-EU Association Agreement, which recognises and reaffirms independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of borders. Due the all  legal instruments, like Association Agreement, Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA), Visa liberalisation dialogue and visa-free regime, Eastern Partnership Program etc  Ukraine stays under  the EU strong supervising and monitoring.
