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:
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:

I haven’t written anything for quite some time on this blog. This is partially due to my preparing a migration to a (shared) hosted solution. This is now done, and I have started writing posts (in English) at http://en.zeropointfield.ch.
This blog, zeropointfield.wordpress.com, will not see any new posts, but I’ll leave the old posts in place and may or may not migrate them to the new site.
If you’ve followed the story of the bombs sent in packages from Yemen to the United States, you can’t help but wonder about a few things.
David Cameron says according to the BBC:
Home Secretary Theresa May has confirmed that a device sent from Yemen and found on a US-bound cargo plane was a bomb.
Prime Minister David Cameron said he believed the device was designed to explode on board the aircraft.
Obviously, the didn’t explode or were intercepted before they could, but if that is forensically secured knowledge, why then were they addressed to Jewish synagogues in Chicago and why are some still saying the synagogues were the target? As the New York Times does today, for example:
CHICAGO — Even to a block that is arguably one of the safest and most secure in the country, the news that two parcels containing explosives were shipped from Yemen and addressed to synagogues or Jewish community centers in the city gave some residents pause on Saturday.
Reports that Chicago-area synagogues or Jewish community centers were likely targets of a terrorist attack and the return of President Obama to his hometown this weekend brought attention to the city’s security.
You can’t have it both ways. The bombs either were designed to explode on the planes, or were targeted at the Jewish synagogues they were addressed to, but it can’t be both.
There is more that doesn’t add up – at least not yet. In the Berner Zeitung, a Swiss newspaper, we read today:
A human rights organisation in Yemen doesn’t believe that the young woman detained in relation with the packets containing explosives and addressed to the United States have anything to do with it. He didn’t believe in the official version, according to which the accused had left here mobile number on the packet slips, Abdel Rahmane of the organisation Hood told APF on Sunday. “We know for sure that al-Qaeda never leaves traces”.
