Russia calls on the USA to give up on mid- and short-range missile deployment plans. Washington is the “gravedigger of the INF Treaty” because they have started and finished the procedure of unilateral withdrawal from the Treaty.
The referendum in Crimea took place as a result of a coup d’état in Ukraine in February 2014.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that Euromaidan was a coup d’état. Maidan or Euromaidan, the demonstrations which began in November 2013 in Kyiv and finished in February 2014, was not provoked from outside but was a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. More cases on this topic here. In order to justify the illegal annexation of Crimea and the reunification with Russia, Moscow claimed that Euromaidan was a coup d’état. In 2014, a particular political context enabled the mobilisation of latent pro-Russia sentiment in Crimea after the occupation by the “green men” had already occurred, NOT vice versa. Euromaidan created a pretext for Putin to enact a pre-prepared contingency plan. The European Union does not recognise Crimea's illegal annexation and continues to condemn it as a violation of international law. EU sanctions continue to be in place against Russia as a consequence for the annexation. For the EU statement on the fifth anniversary of Crimea annexation see here.
