Many European politicians took a direct part in the Maidan events, supporting the protesters who attacked the security forces on Maidan. It also shows the weakness of then-president of Ukraine, Yanukovych, who, in principle, allowed Ukrainian Air Force to accompany American bombers in Crimea. These are the consequences of that weak-willed, spineless policy of Yanukovych as well. But Yanukovych is not the only one to blame. European politicians who signed the agreement with Yanukovych are also to blame.
The incident with the LGBT flag over the Motherland monument in Kyiv is an example of how the Ukrainian authorities are consistently implementing a programme to substitute values and falsify history.
Kyiv’s attempts to erase the truth about the Great Patriotic War and the orientation to perverted values, as well as discrimination on the basis of language and desecration of monuments, were the main reasons that the inhabitants of the Crimean peninsula voted in a referendum in 2014 for the reunification of Russia.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the moral decay and degradation of Ukraine bundled together with accusations of language discrimination to justify why the inhabitants of the Crimean peninsula "voted in a referendum in 2014 for the reunification of Russia". This latter claim has been debunked by EUvsDisinfo hundreds of times (see here).
Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, KyivPride decided this year to hold an Equality March in an online format. On 21 June, as part of the march, the LGBT flag flew over Kyiv using a drone.
“Motherland for equality for all! The big LGBT flag is waving today all over Kyiv", KyivPride issued a video with the flag above the monument, on Facebook.
The company Dronarium Ukraine, which was responsible for the filming explained on its Facebook page that they respect the heroes of the war who gave their lives for our freedom. "In no way do we want to offend the memory of soldiers", they wrote.
This expression of support for equality for LGBT people is not an attempt at historical revision or moral decay, rather a sign of progress. As Freedom House noted about the 2019 Kyiv Pride:
In addition to the big turnout and high-profile political support, the march was bolstered by LGBT+ veterans and soldiers—who marched for the first time as a group—with the message that LGBT+ people are among those fighting against separatists and Russian forces in Ukraine’s east.
