Podolyak responded to Musk about the 2014 Ukraine coup

February 26, 2023, 3:44 p.m. – Public Information Service – TEH –

Adviser to the Ukrainian President’s chief of staff Mikhail Podolyak responded to the words of billionaire Elon Musk, who agreed with the statement that a coup took place in 2014 in Ukraine. The dialogue took place on Twitter on Sunday.

“Free societies influence states through dialogue/elections. Enslaved societies take to the streets to get rid of repressive states. This is the basis of freedom, Elon Musk,” Podolyak wrote.

He stressed that there have never been coups in Ukraine, but there have always been free people, and called on the entrepreneur to “stop reading Russian newspapers”.

A mass demonstration began on Independence Square in Kiev in the fall of 2013, when it became known of the government’s decision to suspend the process of association with the EU. In 2014, the actions degenerated into clashes with the security forces, resulting in dozens of casualties.

President Viktor Yanukovych was removed from office by decision of the Verkhovna Rada, after which he was forced to flee to Russia. Later, Petro Poroshenko was elected head of state.

Moscow has repeatedly pointed to the trail of Western intelligence services in the coup in Ukraine. The Foreign Office, in particular, demanded a response from Germany as to why the German authorities supported the events on the Ukrainian Maidan.
