Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that there was a coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014.
The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 and ended in February 2014 were not provoked by foreign powers, but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych after his refusal to sign the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement promised for years.
