EU wants to ensure Ukraine will continue the war with Russia

Germany, Poland and EU bureaucracy are not interested in calming down the current power in Ukraine. [The EU] prepared and persecuted them, set them on Russia for this very purpose. — All this has been prepared to ensure that Ukraine stays at war with Russia.

 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about the war in Ukraine.

There was no coup in Ukraine four years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but 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.
