Here is how Oliver Stone describes this film, below:
“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.”
Who is Oliver Stone?
Well, it is known that Oliver Stone is not shy about his opinions or criticism of the United States and it’s many administrations who have seemed to have foreign policy that hardly ever benefits it’s citizens or the citizens of other countries.
Here at RedPillsOnly we do try to be as reality and faceted based as possible but ultimately want the reader to come to their own conclusions. Links have been provided for Oliver Stone’s Wikipedia here and an article from The Guardian from a few years back as well as an article from The American Conservative which all give a well rounded perspective of him as a filmmaker and his political leanings.
I think this film is a must see if one wants to get a better perspective of what exactly is happening in the Ukraine and Russia and how USA was involved. It also will help us as free thinkers assess if it’s worth the risk.
