In 2014, violent protests and civil unrest in Ukraine's capital city of Kiev erupted into a revolution that sought to remove President Viktor Yanukovych. The standing government was ousted and plans were put in place to elect an interim government and restore the previous constitution. Russia refused to recognize the revolution and began an invasion of the Crimea, which Ukraine considered sovereign territory. The European Union backed the formation of a stable governing body in Ukraine, but pro-Russian factions within the country led to continued unrest and a standoff with Russian forces occupying Crimea and Sevastopol.
