Svitlana Zalishchuk, MP from pro-presidential Petro Poroshenko’s Bloc, maintains Russia planned and conducted its own negative campaign against Ukraine at the referendum in the Netherlands. She said this in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"Talking about the Russian trail…we used to get signs there actually is Russian influence there. There was a lot of negative comments under video clips, which were part of “Hop, Nederland, hop!” campaign. So, there was a well-planned campaign against our own campaign. And there’s no doubt it was carried out by bots from somewhere near Saint Petersburg”, Zalishchuk said.
