Section 6 from “Old Wine in a New Bottle: Russia’s Modernization of Traditional Soviet Information Warfare and Active Policies Against Ukraine and Ukrainians”.

  2. (2)  Corruption remains widespread;

  3. (3)  Oligarchs remain in control;

  4. (4)  Ukraine is an undemocratic state; its elections are not democratic, and the outcome is dictated by the country’s Western controllers;
