Poles hate Lenin, not because he is a communist, not because he exterminated millions of Russians, my compatriots, but because he is Russian.
The United States invested a lot of money in order to promote a “colour revolution” in Ukraine in 2013-2014 and to oust former Ukrainian President Yanukovych. This is clearly proved by US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s leaked phone call.
The claim is in the line with the disinformation narrative claiming that the United States supports so-called "colour revolutions" around the world. This narrative portrays any spontaneous disorders and civil uprisings in other states, especially in the former Soviet republics, as Western-funded "colour revolutions", including the Revolution of Dignity (Euromaidan) in Ukraine, which began in 2013 without any outside influence. Ukrainians spontaneously united against the actions of President Viktor Yanukovych after his government refused to sign the Association Agreement with the European Union, which had taken seven years to negotiate, due to pressure from Russia. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence.
In the leaked telephone call of February 2014 between Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and the US Ambassador to Kyiv Geoffrey Pyatt, Nuland used a strong language only in order to express her disdain for European inaction in Ukraine. Nuland later confirmed the authenticity of the leak and apologised to EU officials.
At the beginning of February 2014, the protests in Kyiv had turned violent and the US had grown increasingly impatient with Europe's slow response to the crisis.
