I recently posted how #Poroshenko’s 2014 win required untenable coalition of pro-Maidan liberals+ conservatives who thought he’d cut pragmatic businessman deal with Russia. Inevitable some would be disappointed. #Zelensky’s electoral coalition even worse. #UkraineElection. THREAD
I mentioned acquaintance who helped establish Poroshenko Bloc office in #Luhansk Oblast in 2014, got elected to Lisichansk city council. Got disenchanted with prez for not confronting entrenched regional elites to see through #Maidan policies. Now firm Zelensky supporter.
Yesterday spoke with different neighbor, also voted for Zelensky after voting #Boiko first round. Born in Russia, 50 yrs working in #Donbas factory, classic Opposition Bloc voter. Frustrated about industrial decline. Politics border with separatist sympathizing.

New KMIS #Poll : 51% of residents of #Ukraine support and 38% oppose giving autonomy for the separatist-controlled part of #donbas if this would be needed to end the war and resolve this #conflict peacefully. #Donbass kiis.com.ua/?lang=ukr&cat=…
New KMIS #Poll : 54% of residents of Ukraine oppose blocking of #Russian TV channels in #Ukraine, while 32% support such political #Censorship. Similarly, 60% oppose ban on many performers and films from #Russia, while 28% support such political ban. kiis.com.ua/?lang=ukr&cat=…
The KMIS poll shows that views of most Ukrainians on these issues are more liberal and democratic than views of most Ukrainian politicians and many intellectuals, who publicly claim to support democracy, freedom, and European values but in fact act in the opposite way.

Civilian wing of #neo-Nazi led Azov regiment attacks Poroshenko election rally, clashes with police & threatens him in another indication that the far right could be used to help to defeat Poroshenko in presidential elections by force or threat of force. strana.ua/news/189937-v-…
As I wrote in my studies, the far right has power to overthrow the government in #Ukraine by force in alliance with oligarchic parties, as such alliance successfully did five years ago during the Maidan. papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…

#Ukraine ex-president #Yanukovych at press conference today mentioned my #Maidan massacre study along with TV documentaries about Maidan snipers by Italian & Israeli journalists (17m). #Ukrainian #media reports omitted his reference to my academic study.
#Ukrainian publication that mentioned it misrepresented my last name & falsely claimed that I told Yanukovych about my study findings. This was done even though his reference to my study is available in press-conference broadcasts of Ukrainian TV channels. dsnews.ua/politics/uchen…
This is latest example of cover-up, censorship & fake news concerning Maidan massacre & my academic study of this crucial case of mass kiling for Ukraine and the world.
