DISINFO: There is a genocide in Ukraine, to be blamed on...


There is a genocide in Ukraine, to be blamed on the criminal group that seized power in Ukraine during the coup d’état of February 20-22, 2014, with the direct and indirect assistance of the governments of a number of foreign states (the U.S, Germany, France, Poland).


No evidence of genocide has been provided. // The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction of large parts of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.
