European politicians attended the Yalta Economic Forum, which took place on the territory of Crimea from 14 to 16 April, in order to discuss with the Russian president the possibility of lifting EU sanctions.

Disproof

The politicians who attended the Forum are not in the position to negotiate on the issue of EU restrictive measures. On March 10 the European Council extended until 15 September 2016 EU restrictive measures against 146 people and 37 companies, in view of the continuing undermining or threatening of the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine (bit.ly/1SUhHZO), . Following the Foreign Affairs Council on 14 March 2016, the HRVP recalled that the implementation of the Minsk agreement is a key condition for any substantial change in the EU's stance towards Russia (bit.ly/22cDUNo), .

Maidan was a coup, financed by Poroshenko and Kolomoyskyi

Ukraine’s Maidan was a coup, financed by Petro Poroshenko and Ihor Kolomoyskyi.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. The demonstrations which began in Kiev in November 2013 were born out of Ukrainians' own desire for a closer relationship with the European Union, and their frustration when former President Yanukovych halted progress toward that goal as a result of Russian pressure (bit.ly/1Ri9ldy), . The Yanukovych government lost its legitimacy following the brutal crackdown it ordered on peaceful protesters (bit.ly/1Tl9X7W), . The current government is fully legitimate.
