There is an ongoing and deliberate attempt by foreign powers to spearhead the destabilization of Ukraine including its state structure. There is a long history of colored revolutions in Ukraine going back to the 1990s.
The protest movement in Kiev bears a marked resemblance to the “Orange Revolution” of 2004 which was supported covertly by Washington. The 2004 “Orange Revolution” led to the ousting of the pro-Russian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich, spearheading into power the Western proxy government of President Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Julia Tymoshenko.
