Ukraine on Fire

A documentary by Oliver Stone on the 2014 Maidan coup

Video and discussion, via Zoom at 7:00 pm on Friday, March 25. We will watch Oliver Stone’s “Ukraine on Fire.” This documentary provides details and historical background for the 2014 Maidan revolution in Ukraine orchestrated by the U.S. Department of State and the CIA. It includes interviews with the deposed Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich, Vladimir Putin, and many other players. It also includes some amazing (and amazingly violent) footage from events of the time. It provides critical insights helpful toward understanding the situation in Ukraine today. There are rumors that this video may get removed from YouTube because it is controversial in today’s political climate. If this happens then we will show instead “The Nun, the Priests, and the Bomb” about the protest at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the site where Uranium is concentrated for use in atomic bombs. This 2017 documentary by Helen Young is an excellent history of the tragedy of nuclear bombs and the activism against them.
