Disinfo: The 2014 killings in Kyiv was a set-up by the protesters


It is a secret to no-one in Ukraine today, that snipers, apparently acting on orders by the leaders of the coup d’Etat, performed the killings at the Maidan in Kyiv in February 2014


An unfounded claim, presented without a hint of evidence. Similar claims have been repeated frequently: examples here and here, in line with a recurrent narrative on “false flag operations”.

The Ukrainian judiciary has received criticism for the slow pace of investigating the violence, demanding the lives of around 100 protesters and 13 police officers. International media have shared highly critical remarks towards the Ukrainian authorities. This criticism does not support claims on the killings as a set-up.
