Ukraine overthrew legally elected president, committed unlawful acts and undermined its own Constitution

Summary

Ukraine overthrew legally elected president, committed unlawful acts and undermined its own Constitution.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Euromaidan.

For background:

There was no coup in Ukraine 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 as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT.

Ukraine nearing the top of the most indebted countries list

Ukraine can soon reach the top of the list of the countries with the biggest debt.

Disproof

According to the IMF data, Ukraine's debt level is on the level of the 70.5% of GDP and is stabilising. This debt level is relatively far from the most indebted countries, reaching well over 200% of GDP.

Nearly 100 dead as a result of free Hep C vaccine from the Lugar Lab

Nearly 100 people, and likely more, died over a free Hep C elimination program that did not go as planned. This is the true agenda of the US-funded Lugar Lab.

Biologists of the U.S. military-medical group in Georgia and private contractors under federal contract with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency could have performed secret experiments on residents of Georgia.

Disproof

No evidence about the experiments in Lugar laboratory, vaccine or 100 dead bodies. Recurring narrative about Lugar Laboratory.
