so disgraceful movie - shame on you, Oliver Stone
you should from beginning warn that this is Russian interpretation of fact - there is why the only people presented were Putin and Yanukovich
but that's fine, but that movie show exactly how big liars are both of them - they are not able to stand up to true
there is why so many lies were here
Right Sector is not leading political power in Ukraine, yes - they were very patriotic in though days of Russian aggression
nobody have doubt I believe today who shoot Malaysian plane. It were not separatist. Was done by Russian regular army, which were on that time on Ukrainian soil. Weknow names of those guys even. Why to lie ?
Next lie - Orange Revolution - you can't admit Mr.Stone that indeed that election was falsified - don't listen to Yanukovich or Putin - check from independent sources.
Of course nobody mention about very important Budapest Agreement, signed by Russia in return of nuclear weapon - no question Stone asked about it to Putin, because I believe Putin doesn't like that question.
And one more issue: Crimea was mostly pro-Russian,that's true but it was slowly changing with Tatars - native of that region coming back.The bottom line was that under Ukrainian government - was democracy and all minorities (or majority too) were treated ok
No word was about how current Crimean PM Aksionov arrived in Crimea -he is not from there and he was KGB agent - if you mentioning about any person working for USA - why do not tell that ? He was delegated for his job . And election on Crimea was far from honest - again read about it from indepenedent sources but I never heard about any important referendum , where from proclaim to results is everything done in 2 weeks .
Mr Stone is cheater but I really can't understand how the person with some reputation is going so low to produce so stupid material

This documentary is a proof of what 73% of Ukrainian population voted for in 2019 presidential elections. Ukrainian people voted against the people who staged the coup described in this film and the politics they conducted after they seized power. Not all ukrainians voted for "the clown"! The majority cast their ballots against Poroshenko and those Western polititians who backed him in his deeds.

Ukraine. Across its eastern border is Russia and to its west-Europe. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and access to the Black Sea. 2014's Maidan Massacre triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych and painted Russia as the perpetrator by Western media. But was it? "Ukraine on Fire" by Igor Lopatonok provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which lead to the 2004 Orange Revolution, 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically elected Yanukovych. Covered by Western media as a people's revolution, it was in fact a coup d'état scripted and staged by nationalist groups and the U.S. State Department. Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how U.S.-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 80s replacing the CIA in promoting America's geopolitical agenda abroad.

Provides helpful historical background on Ukrainian nationalism and its connection to Nazi Germany during World War Two. Identifies Pravy Sektor as the vanguard shock troops who initiated the February coup. Places Victoria Nuland, Asst Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, and Geoffrey Pyatt, U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, smack dab in the middle of the coup, caught on tape actually naming the next prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk -- "Yats is the guy!" The fundamental question one must ask oneself is, "If it is permissible for Western Ukraine to rebel, why isn't it permissible for Crimea to rebel or Donetsk or Luhansk?" If you can't answer that question then the last four years of Russophobia must be viewed with great suspicion.

The Ukraine crisis is a complex political phenomena. It would have been better if the editing had a narrative that sketched out all the players, motivations and actions. All is not as it seems to the casual observer. Hence, it would help to lay out the play at the beginning.

Without this clarification, the film tends to devolve into a confusing work. To appreciate what the documentary offers, it is left to the viewer to put this together.

This is worth viewing at least twice.

Alternative view of the events in Ukraine in 2014. Without lies and omissions of the mainstream media. It shows Maidan "revolution" as a coup orchestrated by western governments and supported by many ordinary people tired of the government corruption. The role of ukrainian nazis in the coup is also portrayed.

I am not sure who this film is aimed at other than Russian ultranationalists to rationalize their imperialistic and warmongering behavior against the Ukrainian people who want democracy and freedom to join the Western world. Little disappointed to see Oliver Stone become a cipher for the Russian government and their worldwide disinformation campaign. The other documentary; Winter on Fire about the Maidan Revolution is much better.
