Obama and Biden overthrew the gov’t of Ukraine in 2014, now Dems want to do the same thing here

Why did Obama-Biden support the coup of Ukraine in 2014? In Biden’s words, to pass a trade deal.

It may be hard to believe, but the civil war in Ukraine that began in 2014 actually started out as a policy disagreement over a trade deal with the European Union. That’s the story former Vice President Joe Biden tells in his book, “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose,” published in 2017. “A popular demonstration,” Biden wrote, “which started at a square in Kyiv in late 2013, when President Viktor Yanukovych reneged on his promise to take the country into the European Union, had grown from a spontaneous eruption to a real political movement…” Biden is referring to the pro-Europe, anti-Russia trade agreement, called the Ukraine–European Union Association Agreement. It was a trade deal Yanukovych’s then-adviser Paul Manafort had advised him to adopt, but in 2013, he rejected Manafort’s advice, pulling out of the deal. What followed was a revolution in Ukraine that ultimately ousted Yanukovych from power in Feb. 2014, embroiling Ukraine in civil war that led directly to the annexation of Crimea by Russia. Yanukovych then fled to Russia on Feb. 22, 2014, and the trade deal was signed in March 2014. By Biden’s account, it was his pressure that prompted Yanukovych to flee. Biden wrote, “I was telling him it was over… The disgraced president fled Ukraine the next day…” and the trade deal was signed within weeks by the new government the U.S. State Department helped install. Can you believe this?
