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.
