Hot topics of Russian disinfo: Now it’s the oligarchs who rule Ukraine, instead of Soros. Issue #27
The resignation of the Honcharuk government became one of the most discussed topics of the past week. The new government was named the victory of the oligarchy and the new prime minister, “Mr X”. Disinfomers prophesied the "infamous fall" of Zelensky and the growing role of Avakov. The dismissal of the Attorney General was accompanied by paranoid texts about the "American factor", and the constant theme of resuming water supplies to Crimea was supplemented with fantasies of "privatization of water" by Ukrainian oligarchs. Disinformers did not forget to sow panic around the coronavirus and to add it to horror stories about nationalists, intimidating people that nationalists could "use the infection as a biological weapon against the Republics."
