Storyline

Ukraine. Across its eastern border is Russia and to its west-Europe. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and access to the Black Sea. 2014's Maidan Massacre triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych and painted Russia as the perpetrator by Western media. But was it? "Ukraine on Fire" by Igor Lopatonok provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which lead to the 2004 Orange Revolution, 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically elected Yanukovych. Covered by Western media as a people's revolution, it was in fact a coup d'état scripted and staged by nationalist groups and the U.S. State Department. Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how U.S.-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 80s replacing the CIA in promoting America's geopolitical agenda abroad.

Movie tells the whole story
22 November 2016 | by vorbsterSee all my reviews

This movie doesn't only describe something called as "revolution", but also tells a lot about the history of Ukraine what makes the picture more understandable for people not familiar with Ukraine. I lived in Kiev when everything happened, I was always pro-western and supported European integration and I support it now while living in the US. I went to the protest when the President refused to sign the Association with the EU, his arguments were not really convincing for me. I walked among the people for about an hour then suddenly I saw a girl with a hammer in her hand who started braking windows of the city hall, then some more people joined her. I looked at the protesters, they were aggressive, I felt like they were blaming the president in all their problems starting from a broken fork ending with a cheating partner. I left, I was disappointed, I's against aggression, I came to a peaceful meeting and didn't want to be arrested together with those criminals. What I want to say is that this movie tells about what I saw with my own eyes, it's not someone's opinion - it's a history which must be heard. I lived in Ukraine all my life and nothing in this movie goes against my memories or memories of my relatives. I highly recommend this movie for everyone, it explains why and how everything happened and why the only people who lost were ukrainians fooled by ukrainians and their desire to blame someone in their sins.
