The US contributed to a coup d'état in Ukraine. America spent billions of dollars on its organization.

This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with the American television channel NBC. The transcript of the interview is published on the Kremlin website.

"And why did you [the US - ed.] contribute to a coup d'état in Ukraine? Why did you do this? You directly, publicly admitted that you spent billions of dollars on it. Publicly, your officials have said so. Why support coups, armed struggle in the territory of other countries? Why did you put missile systems along our borders?"
