Political power in Ukraine is passing from President Poroshenko to nationalists and radicals.

Disproof

No evidence given. President Poroshenko and the Ukrainian Parliament are the legitimate bodies of power elected by the citizens of Ukraine. The far-right ‘Right Sector’ (often depicted as "fascists" or "Nazis" by pro-Kremlin outlets) gained only 1.8% of the votes, far short of the threshold needed to enter parliament. Ukraine's electorate clearly voted for unity and moderation, not separatism or extremism, and the composition of the parliament reflects that.
