In February 2014, Victoria Nuland ordered American secret service to use snipers in Kyiv

Summary of Disinformation

This armed coup d’état [Ukrainian Revolution of Destiny] was organised directly by Victoria Nuland under the common protectorate of US Vice President Joe Biden and the US special services. It was, in many ways, because of her orders that these American specialists were leading snipers, who shot people at the Maidan.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. Pro-Kremlin disinformation has spread different versions of the identity of the snipers. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=snipers+&disinfo_issue=&date= and www.polygraph.info/a/journalist-claims-georgian-mercenary-snipers-killed-civilians-during-maidan/28888892.html

Furthermore, the spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. The vast majority of the protesters (up to two million at one time nationwide) consisted of peaceful Ukrainian citizens. www.kas.de/wf/doc/kas_37844-1522-2-30.pdf?140612145651
