YouTube has deleted director Oliver Stone’s critically acclaimed documentary about the 2014 Ukraine coup d’état leading up to its current conflict with Russia.
Stone’s 2017 documentary “Ukraine on Fire” was deleted by YouTube on Tuesday without explanation.
Igor Lopatonok, the film’s director, said YouTube had deleted the film from his production company’s official channel, so he responded by waiving copyrights to allow people to download it on Vimeo.

“Ukraine on Fire” is also available on Rumble for anyone to watch:
The film’s description is as follows:
Ukraine. Across its eastern border is Russia and to its west-Europe. For centuries, it has been at the center of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and access to the Black Sea. 2014’s Maidan Massacre triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych and painted Russia as the perpetrator by Western media. But was it?
“Ukraine on Fire” by Igor Lopatonok provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which lead to the 2004 Orange Revolution, 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically elected Yanukovych.
Covered by Western media as a people’s revolution, it was in fact a coup d’état scripted and staged by nationalist groups and the U.S. State Department. Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how U.S.-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 80s replacing the CIA in promoting America’s geopolitical agenda abroad.
Independent investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald sardonically joked that YouTube is just trying to censor information which doesn’t advance the official narrative…for our own good, of course.
“Google wants what’s best for us. Do they occasionally ban things we wish they wouldn’t? Sure, yes. Nobody is perfect. But on the whole, we are grateful for their efforts to ensure we can’t see things we shouldn’t see, and while thanking them, ask politely that they ban more,” Greenwald sniped.

Stone is an Academy Award-winning anti-war filmmaker who has been a vocal critic of America’s neocon foreign policy.
The “Platoon” director noted in 2017 that after the 2014 coup in Ukraine, U.S. media led by the CIA failed to present all sides of the events that unfolded and put out “very anti-Russian” coverage.
“What I’m seeing today — and I’ve read these papers for years — is as bad as I’ve ever seen it,” Stone said. “When the Ukrainian situation happened, I didn’t see any reports from the other side of the war. Within hours the United States recognized the coup d’état. And the reporting from the beginning was very anti-Russian.”
“They’re linked to the CIA…CIA interests are not America’s interests, they never have been. The CIA has been morally corrupt since the beginning.”
Days after Russia invaded Ukraine in February, Stone condemned the “hysteria of the Western media” and called for a sober analysis of the geopolitical situation from all sides.
