There was a Maidan coup d’état in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

The behaviour of Ukrainian elites on the international stage after the Maidan coup d’état can be described in relation to Russia with a short formula – “Us versus them”.

Disproof

There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014; this is a longstanding pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's Euromaidan protests.

The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by several segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. See the full debunk here.
