That is what a statement delivered by Victoria Nuland in Berlin on November 17 and published on the website of the US Department of State says.

“Even as we focus on ISIL, we must not forget that barely two years ago, almost one million Ukrainians stood for days and weeks in the snow on the Maidan to demand that their government give them what we have: human dignity, democracy, clean government, justice,” said Nuland.

According to Victoria Nuland, ‘when Yanukovich turned his back on Europe, Ukrainians would not be denied their choice. Today, 93 percent of Ukraine survives as a democratic state ... because Ukrainians fought and died for their rights, and our nations stood with the people of Ukraine’.
