Between 2005 and 2014, a revival of Nazi ideology began in Ukraine. Ukraine was transformed into 'anti-Russia' with nationalist and liberal-democratic slogans.
In 2014, Western politicians and special services, with the help of Ukraine's corrupt elite, carried out a pro-Nazi coup d'état, using liberal slogans about Ukraine's European choice as cover. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was removed from power by a group of putschists who used Nazi groups with the support of Western diplomats and special services.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the 2013-14 protests in Kyiv falsely portrayed as a coup d'état led by US and the West, about the West’s support for the allegedly Nazi regime in Kyiv and a recurring narrative about the war in Ukraine, trying to deflect Russia’s responsibility for its unprovoked military aggression.
Framing all popular protests against Russia’s interests as a foreign-led ‘colour revolution’ is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative. No evidence is provided to back up the claims.
