The following Video was posted on youtube on February 23, 2014, however it is not visible from when the actual footage ist (probably from December 2013).
In any case personally, I have never seen such peaceful SECURITY as these. No batons, no water canons, no teargas, no rubber bullets. The violence emanates exclusively and solely from the rioting mob utilising almost everything. Iron bars, bricks, fireworks, including an excavator. Democracy EU-style, my ass:
Originally Victor Yanukovych was supposed to fly to Kharkov, however, currently nobody knows where the legitimate President of Ukraine really is. The presidential airplane, however, was spotted here:
Where in the World is Yanukovych
The following video was posted on January 24, 2014 and shows “opposition” in action while storming the city council building in Vinnytsia, which is the capital of Vinnytsia Oblast, which is located in central-western Ukraine:
It’s clearly visible, that police forces are not the ones using force. In fact I have seen more aggressive police action against more peaceful demonstrators in Western countries like Spain and Switzerland:
I also recall the anti-globalisation demonstration in Genoa, Italy in 2001, where Carlo Giuliani was shot by police for doing less than this guys did. Police in Italy had nothing to fear, as it was judged that the acted in self-defense.
Once again, I am not quite satisfied with the performance of our mass-media, who don’t seem quite able or willing to actually investigate stories before they post their articles. It’s not as bad as in the case of Syria, but still, they could do better. So I reopened this blog to post some information I find, that are hardly mentioned in western mass media. One of such topics is the right-wing elements active in Ukrainian protests.
According to lifenews.ru citing Russian security forces there are currently around ten Ukrainian activists from the movement of ukrainian nationalists have travelled to Russia and are trying to recruit fighters for the Maidan demonstrations.
A source said to lifenews.ru – “According to our information, their goal seems to be recruitment of followers for reinforcements in the ranks of protestors on Maidan”.
Law enforcement have identified one of the cells called “Pravyi Sektor” (Right Sector, a right-wing extremist group in Ukraine) in Kursk. There the activists under supervision of a certain Tatyana P. are helping in furthering and organising voyages to Kiev.
Yesterday the Ministry of the Interior of Ukraine (міністерство внутрішніх справ україни, MVS) has shown images of bullet holes in one of their cars. Of course the holes have not been caused by firearms, since the “opposition” doesn’t have any, but are a result of their sharp slogans:
