DISINFO: Ukraine's future will be dictated by the US


We are witnessing an escalation of tension between Moscow and Washington. This tension has a threshold, after which it is extremely dangerous due to the possibility of a world war.

Only on the basis of an agreement between the United States and Russia about the fate of Ukraine, some initiatives can be expected, which will be dictated [to Ukraine] by Washington, because Ukraine is not at all independent.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine allegedly being under external control of the US.

The US does not control Ukraine. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is confirmed by resolutions of the United Nations and is respected by most countries in the world, with Russia as the important exception.

The relations between the US and Ukraine are bilateral relations between two independent countries. The US recognised Ukraine as an independent state on 25 December 1991. Since then, Washington has been working closely with Ukraine, directing its assistance to support the democratic development of the country and helping Ukraine to withstand Russian aggression. US policy has since been centred on realising and strengthening a stable, democratic, prosperous and free Ukraine more closely integrated into Europe and Euro-Atlantic structures.

See other disinformation cases alleging that the US has taken Ukraine under external control; neo-Bandera's Ukraine is under the US and NATO control; US Embassy controls decisions taken in Ukraine or that Ukraine is a colony that does not have its own opinion on the international arena.
