DISINFO: US orchestrated the bloody Maidan coup with right-wing and fascist forces


Biden's foreign policy team is made up of the chief architects of the bloody Maidan coup, which was organised with the hands of right-wing and fascist forces and directed against Ukraine's then democratically elected president Viktor Yanukovych in 2014.


A recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Euromaidan portraying the 2013-14 Ukrainian revolution as a coup d'etat orchestrated by the United States.

There was no coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014. The spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former president Viktor Yanukovych’s sudden departure from the promised Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.

Far-right groups had a very limited presence during the protests and have suffered defeats in every national election after that.

Read similar cases claiming that A violent coup d’état took place in Ukraine in 2014, that The US supported the 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine or that The EU supported an unconstitutional coup d'état in Ukraine led by the US.
