Yanukovych was forced to flee because far-right extremists (Nazis) backed by the US would have killed him if he had stayed and run for reelection:

How the U.S. Has Empowered and Armed 'Neo-Nazis' in Ukraine - IDN-InDepthNews | Analysis That Matters

"Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Svoboda Party and its founders Oleh Tyahnybok and Andriy Parubiy played leading roles in the U.S-backed coup in February 2014.

"Assistant Secretary Nuland and Ambassador Pyatt mentioned Tyahnybok as one of the leaders they were working with on their infamous leaked phone call before the coup, even as they tried to exclude him from an official position in the post-coup government."
As always with you, bullshit. There are simply no facts to support your bullshit support for Yanukovych. He left because he knew he couldn't win.

Capitalism reduced life expectancy in Russia,

That was the failure of communism. And theft by the nomenklatura.
Life expectancy of Russian men falls to 58

"The transition to market economies in many post-communist societies of the former Soviet Union and other former eastern bloc countries in Europe has a produced a “demographic collapse,” a recent report by the United Nations Development Programme has found. Among the most serious findings is a four year drop in life expectancy among Russian men since 1980, from 62 years to 58."

That is, under the nomenclatura, that operated in the conditions of the socialist economy, life expectancy increased. But with the same nomenclatura, but operating in conditions of capitalist production and distribution (many produce - few keep), life expectancy decreases .....
Of course, for the weak-minded, it's all nomenclatura to blame! Capitalism is good!

As is so often true of your posts, there are no facts to support your claims. All the former Soviet states tried to achieve democracy and a free market economy, but Russia did worse than all the others because it was, and is, the most corrupt of these countries and has the most incompetent leaders. It was Russian greed and incompetence that was responsible for Russia's failures.
Your ignorance is truly Trumpian:

Life expectancy of Russian men falls to 58

"The transition to market economies in many post-communist societies of the former Soviet Union and other former eastern bloc countries in Europe has a produced a 'demographic collapse,' a recent report by the United Nations Development Programme has found.

"Among the most serious findings is a four year drop in life expectancy among Russian men since 1980, from 62 years to 58.

"The development programme’s report also noted significant drops in life expectancy in Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, and Romania.

"The immediate cause of the rising mortality, said the report, is the 'rise in self-destructive behaviour, especially among men.'

"Old problems such as alcoholism have increased; drug misusea relatively new problem in the former communist blochas risen dramatically in recent years.

"The report Transition 1999 stated that suicide rates have climbed steeply too, by 60%in Russia, 80%in Lithuania, and 95%in Latvia since 1989."

Once again, there are no facts to support your claim that " the US helped instigate an illegal coup that drove a duly elected president from office."
3ea946a9-794d-4ebd-96c1-af244c3de499

"The background and implications of the 2014 far-right coup in Kiev, which overthrew the pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych, is critical for understanding the current Ukraine-Russia war.

"This coup was openly supported by US and European imperialism and implemented primarily by far-right shock troops such as the Right Sector and the neo-Nazi Svoboda Party.

"It represented the temporary culmination of long-standing efforts by US imperialism to install a puppet regime on the borders of Russia and brought the world a major step closer to a war between the largest nuclear powers, the US and Russia.

"Ukraine has since been systematically built up as a launching pad for a NATO war against Russia."

The other former Soviet states attempted to make the same transition and all succeeded but Russia because then as now Russia is the most corrupt state in Europe. The only people who made a profit from Russia's failure in the 1990's were corrupt Russians.

"Harvard appears to have benefited from HIID’s Russia connection. Harvard Management Company, the university’s endowment fund, was allowed to participate in choice auctions of Russian government property, despite the fact that foreign investors were supposed to be excluded under auction rules."

I bet you believe Russia blew up their gas pipelines, like a good little CIA toady. Hahahahahahahaha.

Our CIA-run newspapers (no, they aren’t literally run by the CIA, but if they were, how would they be any different?) of course rushed to blame the pipeline destruction on Russia, which has precisely zero motivation to do such a thing. If they wanted to impede the movement of natural gas from Russia to other European countries, couldn’t they just turn the pipelines off rather than destroy a $20 billion project?

Russia sucked during communism.
Russia sucked after communism.

I think the takeaway is that Russia sucks.

They went from thinking communism was going to conquer the world to
realizing that communism sucked ass and always had.
