the overthrow of Ukraine's democracy
The what? Yanukovych campaigned on a promise not to sell the country out to Putin, then promptly turned around and started to sell the country out to Putin. The people who'd voted for him quite understandably raised hell about this, and he fled the country for (surprise, surprise) Russia, leaving behind an estate and mansion worth at least 100 million US dollars, which he somehow had been able to afford on a 2,000-dollar-per-month salary.
