DISINFO: Euromaidan was a coup d’état praised by the European Union
In 2013, Euromaidan, which started as the second “Ukrainian colour revolution” (after the orange one, which ended badly in 2005), turned into a real coup d’état praised by the European Union.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation claiming that Euromaidan was a coup d’état. The Euromaidan protests were a spontaneous reaction among large parts of Ukrainian population, ignited by the decision of former President Yanukovych not to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The Maidan movement resonated with a widespread discontent with corruption and mismanagement under Yanukovych. Further analysis of disinformation about Euromaidan available here.
