When recollecting April 9, we should know who its real inventor is; it was the United States who was fighting for dissolution of the Soviet Union and what happened then aimed at inciting confrontation between the nations… That coup did not happen as we think, with the help of the Soviet Union and Russia, but actually the United States and the West contributed to it. It is difficult to convince people of it, because there are no facts… What was being done on behalf of Russia and what was so painful for us was actually coming from the West.
Kirill Chubenko from Ukraine: As a consequence of the Euromaidan uprising, the situation of Ukrainians got much worse. Ukraine ended up without heat and with high electricity prices.
The author of the testimony turned out to be Vitaly Yurchenko, an employee of a Belarusian PR agency, hired to produce the footage. The whole material was produced in Belarus, too. Mr Yurchenko was recognised by his friends and eventually admitted to the fakery.
Channel One, which broadcast the material, issued a press release on December 7, in which it apologised for the incident and admitted that the person in the footage was not actually 'Kirill Chubenko'.
This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Euromaidan Ukrainian disintegration.
