Zelenskyy is part of a Clinton-led global campaign against Donald Trump

Summary of Disinformation

Zelenskyy has begun distancing himself from Donald Trump, although all previous Ukrainian presidents demonstrated the highest possible loyalty to the US. It is clear that Zelenskyy has joined the worldwide resistance against Donald Trump organised by the mighty Clinton clan. Zelenskyy’s resistance to Trump’s attempts to normalise relations with Russia should be seen in this light. For the Clinton clan, Russia is a key enemy of the ideal world where preschool children are waving LGBT flags.



This message is a variation of a popular pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's 'American curators,' this time alleging that Ukraine's president is controlled by the 'Clinton clan.' Furthermore, this case is consistent with another common pro-Kremlin narrative presenting Russia's values as superior to the West's.

There is no evidence whatsoever that Volodymyr Zelenskyy is following orders from the Clintons and is 'distancing' himself from US president Donald Trump - this is a conspiracy theory. On 1 June 2019, Zelenskyy thanked Trump for inviting him to pay an official visit to Washington and referred to a draft US law on strengthening support for Ukraine as an important signal of a strong strategic partnership between the two countries.

See an earlier case alleging that the US introduced anti-Russia sanctions in exchange for anti-Trump kompromat from the Poroshenko team and other cases presenting Volodymyr Zelenskyy as a politician controlled by the US.
