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.

Totally a lie
5 December 2016 | by Rostyslav DzinkoSee all my reviews

While the film is marked as documentary it absolutely screws the reality and does not have anything in common with the real events happened in 2013-2014 in Ukraine. As a first-hand participant of the events shown in the film, I can approve most of the episodes in this film is a cheap Russian propaganda. Would not recommend to watch the movie to people who really would like to watch it as a documentary. The only appropriate audience for the film is people from universities that learn about modern information warfare, and countries' special services. So said about "the dangerous potential for the world".... yes, this movie has a great dangerous potential for the world.
