Ukrainian oligarchs will divide Ukraine into principalities

Summary of Disinformation

Ukrainian oligarchs are likely to attempt to divide Ukraine into principalities where they will enjoy absolute power.

Disproof

This is consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation about Ukraine's imminent disintegration and corruption. Despite the advantaged positions that some oligarchs enjoy in Ukraine, there is no grounding to support the claim that the country will disintegrate into "oligarchic principalities", as alleged in the case above.

For example, refer to our past news analysis, Ukraine Under Information Fire, to see other Ukraine-related disinformation narratives and messages.
