That junta DID stink. At the time, there was a big push of
support for the 'arab spring' (which just replaced one set
of horrible dictators with another set of horrible dictators).
It really does seem that the EU/USA/NATO saw it's chance to
sneak in a replacement for the Russia-friendly govt. Those
insurgents needed a LOT of funding/coordination to do what
they did so quickly. It was *not* exactly a "popular revolution".
I don't think most (western) Ukrainians were upset about moving
away from Russia - but at the same time weren't particularly
against staying with Russia either,
However it all DID immediately enrage Russia, bruise Russian
pride, threaten Russian military/economic interests. Hence
the Crimea grab that came soon after.
Still, in this rare case, looks like the new dictators ARE
better than the old - and especially for EU/NATO interests.
Ukraine was doing well up until the war, the people seemed
pretty happy and they DO like Zelenskyy.
"Enemy of my enemy" applies here - the new guys were
anti-Russia, ergo Good Guys.
