The fact is that Kyiv has long lost the ability to be guided by national interests. The main goal of the organisers of the coup in February 2014 was not a desire to acquire greater subjectivity, but, on the contrary, to surrender it to the West in the hope of becoming, with its blessing, a kind of occupying administration in their own country.
According to Kyiv's plans, politically and militarily it was supposed to be covered by the EU and NATO, from the table of which Ukrainian politicians would be fed.
The claim advances a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative concerning the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests, as well as about Ukrainian statehood and lost sovereignty.
There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014; this is a longstanding pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's Euromaidan. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former president Viktor Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.
