Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 did not happen by chance, nor is it just the result of a dictator's ambition. To understand what is currently happening in Europe, and in particular on the western border of the former Soviet Union, it is necessary to take into account the evolution of events in Ukraine since independence from the USSR until the "Maidan revolution" of 2014.

"Ukraine on Fire" is a documentary from 2016, directed by Igor Lopatonok and produced by Oliver Stone,that reveals American and NATO participation in the 2014 coup d'état in Ukraine and its aftermath. Stone investigates the origins of the conflict that currently keeps the European continent and the entire planet in suspense.

This documentary – even at the risk of appearing biased – helps us to understand the events that brought war back to Europe. In the film, Oliver Stone interviews, among others, the former president of Ukraine Víktor Yanukovych, Russian President Vladimir Putin and former Ukrainian Interior Minister Vitali Zajarchenko. 

"Ukraine on Fire" has been successively banned from the major digital platforms, which led the authors to make the film available for everyone to see. The importance of the facts that it reports lead us to share it, without any value judgement. After all, they are just facts, which each one interprets as they wish.
