DISINFO: Ukrainian wealthiest people are controlled by the US and Israel


Over 80% of the wealthiest people listed in top 200 richest Ukrainians do not represent the Orthodox civilisation. Their activities are coordinated from the US and Israel, which aim at limiting the scope of confrontation among Ukrainian oligarchic clans and consolidating them against Russia.


A conspiracy theory and recurring disinformation narratives about West's anti-Russian campaign and Ukraine under foreign control.
