The US and allies supported the coup d’état in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

The US and several of their allies supported the coup d’état in Ukraine in February 2014.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that Euromaidan was a coup d’état, organised by the US and other Western states.

The protest movement known as Euromaidan, which lasted from the end of November 2013 until the end of February 2014, was a spontaneous uprising of the Ukrainian people, not a coup d’état.

People protested against the government of former President Yanukovych who, in a U-turn decision, decided not to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union that he had promised for years.
