Maidan: Road to War

‘Maidan: Road to War’ was shot from 2014 to 2022, as DPR and LPR territory was subjected to daily shelling from Ukraine. The film delves into the situation in 2014 and pieces together the course of events. It sought to bring the shelling and deaths of civilians in Donbass to the attention of the Ukrainian government, but they did not respond.

The Maidan protests in Kiev in 2013 were prompted by the government’s decision to suspend the signing of an Association Agreement with the European Union. Initially, the protests resembled something more like a rock festival, but signs of hostility soon started to creep in from politicians and nationalists.
They were deliberately provocative. Leaders of nationalist organizations said they prepared for violent street riots long before the protests engulfed Kiev. They planned a revolution and the deposition of the government from the start.
See how the events unfolded and what eventually led to the conflict in our film.

Watch "Maidan: Road to War" on RTD website and on RT's live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT's schedule page.
