2014 Ukraine coup
The 2014 Ukraine coup was presented by most of the Western commercially-controlled media as an independent uprising of the Ukrainian people. The resulting stalemate between the new Ukrainian leadership and Russia resulted in the controversial, and still not fully investigated downing of a plane known as Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The western commercially-controlled media was full of the wrath of the righteous, pompous demonisation of Russia with little reflection that the US-UK-NATO might have clandestine purposes. The rigidly uniform consensus - near to military standards in its apparent discipline - is that the US-UK-NATO version of events, with minor/trivial adjustments of emphasis, is the only one worthy of reporting. It is the establishment-loyal tub-thumping propaganda that has become so familiar in the run up to war in one way.
A leaked telephone call between Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt complicates the construction of a half-way credible Official Narrative, as does the leaked telephone conversation between Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Peat and EU foreign affairs spokeswoman Catherine Ashton together with the murky legal status of the new Kiev authorities themselves. All three items are therefore either ignored or labelled as Conspiracy theory  by the commercially-controlled media who are nothing if not predictable in their wartime role of routine propaganda and Official Narrative damage limitation efforts.
This video is a comprehensive exploration of what has been happening in the Ukraine both leading up to and since the violence in Kiev began in late November 2013. Following the violent ousting of the democratically elected government in Mid-February 2014 (an election certified as 'free and fair' by all international observers), the legal basis on which Russia rests its position and reaction to those events is threefold:
- Viktor Yanukovych remains the only constitutionally legal representative of the Ukraininan State.
- The Kiev vote which claims to have deposed him was made by a rump of its 450 elected members (the remainder having fled to their Eastern constituencies in fear for their lives), acting outside its standing orders with no quorum and with those members who did vote doing so under threat of violence by armed men inside the parliament chamber - in other words under duress.
- Russian forces of up to 27,000 personnel are authorised, by treaty with the legal Ukrainian State, to be present in the Crimea and to conduct the operational maneuvers Russia deems necessary to protect the Black Sea Fleet naval base at Sevastopol.
As of 3 March 2014, Russia claims not to have imported any personnel not authorised under the treaty and, in the absence of a legal authority in Kiev, to have merely undertaken patrolling activities requested of it by the legally elected authorities in Crimea itself.
Russia also claims that it has been requested in writing by the Ukrainian President Yanukovych to use its military to restore legal authority to Ukraine .
As one of the contributors to the video says: an apt analogy for the respective Russian and US actions since the crisis began is that " Russia is playing chess while the US is playing poker and American football - bluffing brute force with a pair of sevens". President Putin is calling the US bluff and it is to be hoped that the West really IS bluffing because Putin certainly isn't.
It should also be clear to rational observers that, despite western faux-outrage at their claimed "Russian military invasion of a sovereign state", were it not for Russia's actions to date [4 March 2014] and the fact that Russia continues to recognise it as a Unitary State, the Ukraine would have fragmented into civil war. Were Russia to withdraw its recognition, there can be little doubt that open civil war would be the result.
A more disturbing 'reality' possibility
There is a credible alternative interpretation of unfolding events in the Ukraine, authoritatively voiced by Professor Francis Boyle. It is that, based on extensive experience of its earlier 'colour' and 'Arab Spring' revolutions, the whole situation has been very thoroughly gamed by the US-NATO and that Russia has done nothing that was not clearly foreseen and allowed for. Professor Boyle:
“I suspect this entire Ukraine Crisis had been war-gamed and war planned quite some time ago at the highest levels of US/NATO. Notice DOD slipped 2 US warships into the Black Sea just before the Olympics under a patently absurd pretext. In other words, what we are seeing unfold here is a US/NATO War Plan. They instigated the fascist coup against Yanukovich. They anticipated that Putin would then respond by taking over Crimea.
I suspect the US/NATO/EU response will be to introduce military forces into Western Ukraine and Kiev and thus make Ukraine a de facto member of NATO, which has been their objective all along. They have already anticipated what Putin’s next move after that will be. Notice also the massive anti-Russian campaign by the Western News Media working in lock-step with each other. Another sign that all this has been planned well in advance.
I suspect that US/NATO/EU figure that Putin knows they have this offensive, first-strike strategic nuclear capability with a rudimentary ABM/BMD capability so that at the end of the day he will be forced to stand down—or else. Compellence as opposed to Deterrence. Just like during the Cuban Missile Crisis. That is where this US/NATO/EU War Plan is heading on the assumptions that they can keep their deliberate Escalation Dominance under their control and that at the end of the day Putin will be forced to stand down just like Khrushchev did and for the same reasons. That would leave US/NATO/EU in control of at least half of Ukraine as a de facto NATO member state.”
Francis Boyle (Feb, 2014) 
}} Supporting this analysis are reports of groups of mercenaries - dressed in civilian clothes and carrying bulky packs - arriving at Kiev airport, from whence they are being sent to Odessa, in the south-east Black sea coast and close to the Crimea. They are reported to be employees of Greystone Ltd,  a subsidiary of Academi (Fornerly Blackwater]])  
It has also been reported that the Ukrainian regime has hired US Greystone mercenaries to suppress dissent in the Eastern regions and cities sympathetic to Russia. The initiative is reported as being financed by oligarchs Sergei Taruta and Igor Kolomoysk appointed by the Kiev regime as governors of Dnepropetrovsk and Donetsk regions respectively 
Deputy US Secretary of State and US Ambassador discuss who should be Ukraine's next prime minister

- Full article: Document:A new US puppet government for Ukraine
An intercepted and leaked telephone conversation between US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, which took place during the third week of December 2013, was posted to YouTube on 4 February 2014. In it they discuss their preferred candidates for ministerial positions in a new Ukrainian government. Nuland reveals both her own and US contempt for the EU in her reply to Pyatt suggesting their preferences might not go down too well in EU circles; "Fuck the EU..." she replies. In the event she got her way with her preferred candidate for prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk  ("Yats" as he was dubbed in the conversation) being appointed by the insurrectionists on 21 February 2014 and being immediately recognised by the US and a subservient EU.
"The most blatant coup in history"
In a December 19th interview in the Russian magazine Kommersant, George Friedman, founder and CEO of Stratfor, said of the overthrow of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych that occurred on February 22nd of 2014: “It really was the most blatant coup in history.”

Some snipers killed people on both sides of the Maidan demonstration in Kiev on 20 February 2014, an incident which triggered the overthrow of the government two days later. The identity of these snipers remains disputed.

Judaic power in the 2014 Coup administration
The footsoldiers of the Ukrainian coup were, by near universal agreement and prevailing western political-spectrum norms, of Nationalist-Right to extreme-Right (ie 'neo-facist') allegiance. By the standards enforced in, for example Germany and France, statements by several prominent coup members would result in immediate prosecution and a prison sentence - for example Oleh Tyahnybok, leader of the Svoboda party is on record as stating that a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" rules Ukraine and that "Germans, Kikes and other scum" want to "take away our Ukrainian state.".  It is therefore puzzling (superficially - see below) to note that, not only have the insurgents appointed a Jew, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, as acting prime minister, but that he in turn has appointed a Jewish Olgarch, Ihor Kolomoyskyi , as 'governor' of the Eastern Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk. He is ranked the third richest man in Ukraine with an estimated net worth of $2.4billion. He is also the founder of the European Jewish Union  He controls his business empire from Switzerland and has joint Ukrainian-Israeli citizenship. President Putin recently called him "A Unique imposter"  - clearly the best man for the job of ruling a city with a majority Russian-speaking population.
The "influence of the Jews"
The Jewish population of Ukraine numbers 65,000 which is about 0.28% of the total. In spite of that miniscule proportion, it is a truism to state that uber-wealthy oligarchs have, since the demise of the Soviet Union, dominated the politics of the Ukraine and, just as in the immediate post-Soviet Russia of Boris Yeltsin, they are overwhelmingly of Jewish lineage (2 of the 3 richest - Victor Pinchuk  and Ihor Kolomoyskyi  - are Jews).
The appointed 'Prime Minister' Arseniy-Yatsenyuk, ex-head of the Ukraine Central Bank, has Jewish parents. He heads "The Arseniy Yatsenyuk Foundation" whose primary funding is from The German Marshall Fund The Fund's founder and Chairman until 2012 was Guido Goldman 
The following snippet from a speech by British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli to the House of Commons in 1852 is, for inquiring minds, a trenchant thematic guide to events in the Ukraine through the winter of 2013-14:
The influence of the Jews may be traced in the last outbreak of the destructive principle in Europe. An insurrection takes place against tradition and aristocracy, against religion and property... the natural equality of men and the abrogation of property are proclaimed by the secret societies which form provisional governments, and men of the Jewish race are found at the head of every one of them.
Reports of Sponsorship
In "US and EU Are Paying Ukrainian Rioters & Protesters", a Boiling Frogs Post article from February 2014, Dr Paul Craig Roberts alleged that "A number of confirmations have come in from readers that Washington is fueling the violent protests in Ukraine with [US] taxpayer dollars". This possibility is supported by Sibel Edmonds' revelations about Operation Gladio/B.

|Russia/Encirclement||“Unfortunately, it’s US “diplomacy” which brought the US, Russia, Ukraine, and NATO to the current standoff. As the Warsaw Pact disintegrated and the Soviet Union collapsed, US encouragement for those events included pledges that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization wouldn’t take advantage of the situation to expand eastward. Since then, NATO has inexorably pushed in that direction, nearly doubling the number of member states. Thanks, US “diplomacy.”
Things began coming to a head with the US-sponsored coup in Ukraine that replaced its “Russia-friendly” regime with a “US/Europe-friendly” regime in 2014, courtesy of Barack Obama. Thanks, US “diplomacy.”Then in 2019, the US withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which forbade the US to place missiles within surprise strike distance of Russia, and Russia to place similar missiles within surprise strike distance of NATO. The US followed up by placing exactly such missiles in Poland, courtesy of Donald Trump. Some “diplomacy.”... Then the US went into overdrive (courtesy of Trump and Biden) against the opening of a pipeline (Nord Stream 2) which would have supplied Russian natural gas to Germany. The pipeline would have been a force for peace insofar as Russia likes to sell natural gas (at a fraction of prices the US can offer), and Germans like to not freeze to death.”
