The Maidan turned in to a civil war. The clique seized power in the capital and immediately began suppressing the citizens who opposed the overthrow of the legitimate government. The junta began to suppress the peaceful resistance of the Southern and Eastern oblasts of Ukraine. That eventually led to a civil war in Ukraine. On the one hand, there was a fascist clique with its own Bandera ideals, on the other, those who did not recognise the coup that had taken place in the country.
The West is pouring money into the Russian opposition so they can destroy the country.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative alleging that the West wants to destabilize Russia.
Maintaining people-to-people contacts and supporting civil society in Russia is one of the five underlying principles of EU relations with Russia, outlined in 2016.
Russia passed the "foreign agent" law in 2012, which requires non-profit organisations, charities and civil society groups that have received foreign funding and engage in political activity in Russia to declare themselves as "foreign agents." They then automatically become subject to additional requirements, and failure to meet them could result in the suspension of their activities.
The EU has repeatedly condemned the "foreign agent" law in Russia, as it clearly goes against Russia's human rights obligations and commitments.
See earlier disinformation cases alleging that if the country refuses to join the EU, it is punished with a Maidan, that the US constantly meddles in US politics with NGOs and critics, that the West uses neo-Nazis to destabilize Russia and neighboring states.
