The British Government lied to Parliament in saying that Yanukovych was impeached and removed from power in accordance with the Constitution.

This is not just a domestic matter for the UK - the Belfast Agreement was endorsed by referenda in the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland and incorporated into an international treaty with the Irish Republic, which was deposited with the UN.

Not before time, it appears, the West is reining in its clients in Kiev and urging them to refrain from using the Ukrainian army to put down opposition in the east of the country. Good sense has prevailed at last in Western capitals and further bloodshed will hopefully be avoided in Donetsk and Lugansk.

In Brussels, on 26 March 2014, President Obama lied about a referendum being held in Kosovo prior to its secession from Serbia in February 2008.
