DISINFO: The goal of Maidan was to bring oligarchs to power
It has been 6 years since the Maidan coup in Ukraine. People were expecting Europe, freedom and heavenly manna, but instead got European slavery. And also a hike in crime, corruption and debts. Despite the rotation of government officials, nothing has changed in the country. But this was the goal of Maidan – to bring oligarchs to power and consolidate their position. Western puppet masters are behind this all.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Euromaidan.
The demonstrations that began in Kyiv in November 2013, called "Maidan" or "Euromaidan", emerged organically as a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn on the highly anticipated EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, which had been under negotiation for seven years. The protests were followed by Presidential and parliamentary elections.
The EU continues to support independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. Since 2014, the EU and the European Financial Institutions have mobilised a package of more than €15 billion in grants and loans to support the ambitious reform process.
