The ruling Polish elite is trying to cut all ties with the East using the rhetoric of war. The most recent manifestation of this process is the construction of a fence on the Polish-Belarusian border. This border fence has a primarily a symbolic meaning – it is supposed to introduce a permanent division between "us" and "them", creating an additional barrier against the East. The border fence sends a message that it is necessary to prepare for war – it frightens the society with the perspective of war.
Ukraine's post-Maidan government came to power as a result of a coup d’état.
A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Euromaidan portraying the 2013-14 Ukrainian revolution as a coup d'etat.
This narrative portrays the massive popular protests in Ukraine in 2013-2014 as a coup d’état orchestrated by the United States and/or other Western actors to overthrow the then pro-Russian government of Victor Yanukovich.
There was no coup d'état in Ukraine: the Maidan uprising, named after the Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) square in Kyiv that gathered the protesters, was a spontaneous popular protest that arose following an unexpected change of policy by then-President Yanukovich. This spontaneous popular uprising was born within Ukrainian society, uniting citizens of all ages, sexes and social classes. The Ukrainian population rallied against then-President Yanukovich's refusal to sign the EU-Ukraine Association agreements, cancelling seven years of negotiations, in favour of a more Russia-aligned policy, distancing Ukraine from the European Union.
Yanukovich literally abandoned the city of Kyiv and the Ukrainian government on 21 February 2014 following the signing of an agreement aimed at stopping the escalation and collapse of the situation caused by the bloody government crackdown against Euromaidan protesters. The crackdown on protesters during the Euromaidan clashes in 2014 led to over 80 deaths between February 18 and 20: this was followed by the Ukrainian parliament distancing itself from President Yanukovych, who in the meantime had secretly taken refuge in Russia.
