American film director and Pentagon critic Oliver Stone has announced he is shooting a documentary on Ukraine’s revolution arguing the CIA instigated the coup that toppled pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych.
“Many witnesses, including Yanukovych and police officials, believe these foreign elements were introduced by pro-Western factions - with CIA fingerprints on it,” the W director added.In his lengthy post the director took a swipe at “Western media” for presenting the Yanukovych government as the aggressor in Ukraine’s Maidan revolution and said “the truth is not being aired in the West”.
“The West has maintained the dominant narrative of ‘Russia in Crimea’ whereas the true narrative is ‘USA in Ukraine’.”
“Remember the Chavez ‘regime change’/coup of 2002 when he was temporarily ousted after pro and anti-Chavez demonstrators were fired upon by mysterious shooters in office buildings? [The coup in Ukraine] also resembles similar technique early this year in Venezuela when Maduro’s legally elected Government was almost toppled by violence aimed at anti-Maduro protesters.“Create enough chaos, as the CIA did in Iran ‘53, Chile ‘73, and countless other coups, and the legitimate Government can be toppled,” Stone argued.
