Europe will overthrow Erdogan like they overthrew Yanukovych

Summary of Disinformation

There are indications that Europe is already considering overthrowing Erdogan, the same way Yanukovych was overthrown in Ukraine, especially since the current conditions of Turkey are, in many ways, similar to those of Ukraine five years ago. 

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy narrative claiming that Euromaidan was a coup d’état, organised by the EU and the West.

The protest movement known as Euromaidan, which lasted from the end of November 2013 until the end of February 2014, was a spontaneous uprising of the Ukrainian people, not a coup d’état, and not orchestrated by outsiders. 

People protested against the government of former President Yanukovych who, in a U-turn decision, decided not to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union that he had promised for years.
