DISINFO: 2014 Ukraine coup was orchestrated by neo-Nazis
Militant neo-Nazi groups, including Right Sector and the Azov Battalion, helped orchestrate the 2014 Ukrainian coup d’etat.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative painting the 2013-14 Ukrainian revolution as a coup d'etat, and Ukrainian politics dominated by fascist/Nazi groups and ideology. The Euromaidan was not a coup attempt but a nationwide popular protest against the government's sudden announcement that it would not sign the EU Association Agreement. See the full debunk here. Far-right groups had a very limited presence during the protests and have suffered spectacular defeats in every national election since 2014. The Azov Battalion was established in May 2014 and could not have possibly taken part in the supposed "coup" of February 2014.
