In many places throughout the world Vladimir Putin is seen as a patron of conservative values. At present a civil war is going on in the US. Conservatives call liberals "liberal fascists", while liberals call conservatives "white supremacists" and "racists." Russia takes an indirect part in this civil war. 75 millions Trump voters are bullied, treated as unnecessary people, supremacists, and fascists. As the country of conservative views, Russia can become a model for part of Trump voters. Russia will make them not feel alone.
Russia, of course, recognises the Ukrainian state, but the real Ukrainian state. The moment when a military coup took place with the complicity of several Western countries, it turned into a project for these Western countries.
This is a longstanding pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine's Euromaidan protests depicting the 2013-14 revolution as a coup d'état, orchestrated by the Western countries.
Ever since the 1970s, the EU has adopted an independent role in global affairs, an identity based on peace and stability and the rule of law, in addition to pursuing a foreign policy premised on achieving peace for the world. Supporting democracy worldwide is a priority for the European Union, and allegations that protests around the world are incited and/or funded by Western states, such as colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the Arab Spring revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia, is recurring disinformation presented without evidence.
There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last-minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU.
The demonstrations were not provoked from outside but a spontaneous gathering of different categories of the Ukrainian citizens: students, journalists, activists etc. Ukraine, being an independent country, guarantees its citizens the freedom of assembly, which is directly mentioned in the Ukrainian constitution.
