No external pressure was exerted upon Ukraine in the process of the change of government in 2014, after the Revolution of Dignity, President of the United States Barack Obama said during his address to the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
”In Europe, the progress of those countries in the former Soviet bloc that embraced democracy stand in clear contrast to those that did not. After all, the people of Ukraine did not take to the streets because of some plot imposed from abroad.They took to the streets because their leadership was for sale and they had no recourse,” Obama said while addressing the General Assembly, according to the White House.
”They demanded change because they saw life get better for people in the Baltics and in Poland, societies that were more liberal, and democratic, and open than their own,” said the U.S. President.
Earlier, the Russia Federation had repeatedly accused the United States and the European Union of setting up a ”coup” in February 2014.
