Summary of Disinformation

Ukrainian politicians came to power through a coup.


The Ukranian parliamentary elections of 26 October 2014, where parties devoted to democratic values received the strong majority of votes, and the democratic and inclusive Presidential elections held on 25 May 2014 disprove these claims. The OSCE characterised the vote bit.ly/2eWWBAV, as "an amply contested election that offered voters real choice, and a general respect for fundamental freedoms".
