With Zelenskiy as president, governance by terrorism will continue in Ukraine

Summary of Disinformation

After the coup in Ukraine in 2014, a regime of terror was established. Given the radical political preferences of the Ukrainian population, Volodymyr Zelenskiy does not need to initiate any substantial changes. Hence, the system of governance by terrorism will continue in Ukraine.


This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about an alleged Western-backed coup d'etat in Ukraine in 2014.

In reality, the spontaneous onset of the Euromaidan protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s violent dispersal of peaceful student protests against Yanukovych's sudden decision to withdraw from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013.
