US and its puppets fear the Donbas elections because they produce an independent world

Summary of Disinformation

US and its puppets like [Ukrainian president] Petro Poroshenko fear the [Donbas] elections because any electoral campaign produces an independent world. Kyiv and the US do not want the Donbas to have its own voice and representatives.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about US role in Ukraine.

The elections were held in Donbas, Ukraine, on 11 November by Russian-backed separatists and were not recognised by the international community. The elections were illegal under Ukrainian law, illegitimate and in violation of the Minsk Agreements.

The EU stated that "the announcement that so-called "elections" will be held in the so-called "Luhansk People's Republic" and "Donetsk People's Republic" on 11 November 2018 runs contrary to the spirit and letter of the Minsk agreements, which have specific provisions regarding the organisation of local elections in that region."

The European Union fully supports the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders.
