Petro Poroshenko (b. September 26, 1965) led the illegal Maidan regime after the overthrow of the legitimate democratically elected government of Ukraine by the Obama administration.[2] Previously, from 2009 to 2010, he was foreign minister under Viktor Yanukovych. Poroshenko is also known as the seventh richest oligarch in Ukraine. He is also called the "Chocolate King" for his sweets group "Roshen". According to Forbes Poroshenko is worth 1.3 billion dollars.[3] His popularity rating never rose above 7%. Poroshenko is a rabid racist and Russophobe who works closely with NATO and Western media.

Beginning under the Poroshenko regime, military assistance from the United States, which amounted to more than 2.7 billion dollars in the period from 2014 to 2021, depended on military reforms within Ukraine. One of these reforms focused on Ukraine’s ability to integrate its logistical support with other NATO units during joint operations. In 2016, Poroshenko sought and obtained experienced military advisers from United States, Canada, Great Britain, Lithuania and Germany, whose purpose was to modernize Ukrainian units and reach NATO standards by 2020, thus achieving a high degree of compatibility with units from other alliance countries.

When the Minsk Agreements where signed in early 2015 to end the Donbas war and grant autonomy to the Luhansk and Donetsk republics, Poroshenko refused reconciliation. Poroshenko said of relations between Ukrainians and ethnic Russians who were also citizens of Ukraine:

"We [Ukrainians] will have work and they [Russians] will not! We will receive pensions and they will not! With us, people, children and pensioners will get support and not with them! With us, children will visit schools and kindergartens, but their children will sit in the basement because they are unable to do anything. So, that's exactly how we're going to win the war."

In May 2015 president Poroshenko signed a law which ordered the removal of statues and monuments erected in the Soviet era. 1,320 statues of Lenin had been dismantled along with 1,069 other monuments.[4]

Poroshenko said he supports “the march of equality [LGBT pride parade] as a Christian and as a president-European. This aligns things. I will not participate in it, but I see no reason that someone should prevent it for it is the constitutional right of every Ukrainian citizen.”[5]

On June 20, 2017 Poroshenko met with President Trump. Thus the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on 38 Russian individuals and entities involved in the conflict with Ukraine.[6]
