West again eloquently silent. It is the wests will carried out, appointed by the President of Petro Poroshenko.

Until a few days ago at a meeting of the Security Council of Ukraine, he instructed law enforcement officers:
Form a few new units and that will override the possible occurrence of militias. And said:
It is about the direction of Berdyansk, Kharkov, Lugansk north, Mariupol and Dnepropetrovsk region. On the moral side of this decision even say no. Ask another question, more close and clear as the current Ukrainian government and the West: what money will be equipped a new army units?
Everyone knows: the state treasury is empty. As we recall, this summer statesmen decided to spend in the country share “Support Ukrainian army.”

Ukrainians, as they say about themselves, the people are kind, sympathetic, friendly and, most importantly, peaceful – sacrificed to the needs of their “liberation” army of more than 150 million USD. (Remittances). The press service of the military department specified, then, that from all this, well, absolutely not “frail” amount of donations 138 million 406 thousand. USD. will be spent on the “logistics, the remaining money will be spent on medical care of the Armed Forces.”
 
But on further collected using SMS (5 UAH. Each) of 80 million USD. Defense Ministry planned to buy … sleeping bags, vests and helmets. No “golden” hardly get bags and other ammunition, given that the amount of about $ 13 million. US ?! So the question to ask yourself even allowed some Ukrainian media, for the most part crushed the SBU, the Interior Ministry and other Controlling-banning-checked by the authorities. Pinned down to such an extent that even the hint of the truth did not come through (and not penetrate!) On their pages. But here the “voice” they served. Apparently, all the same to resolve the “top”. And they told the media that stores the usual “sleeping” cost 200 USD, and the soldiers will sew on the 500, and probably in some prodeputatskoy “office.”

And despite the fact that the servile soldiers recruits who drop in hotspots, actually begging, – commented on the fact that the publication of “AIF” Ukrainian political scientist Denis Omelchuk.
It was then, after a series of major defeats “national consciousness” of military units during the civil war with the militia DNI and LC revealed that’re coming out patriots not only do not know how to fight, so they also “eat” something, even a new form at all not enough. Ammunition and equipment missing, and more abundantly, and with crackers here was tight, with bandages, iodine, aspirin, analginum and other drugs fared even worse. And all because the money for ATO abruptly ended. That has been started the action “Support the Ukrainian army”, which brought the state treasury more than 200 million hryvnia.
 
On account of Ministry of Defence also received 154.5 thousand. Dollars. US, 77.3 thous. EUR 5.3 thousand. CZK 450 Canadian dollars. 140 CHF 500 PLN. Total – Foreign Currency in UAH equivalent of 3 million 82.4 thousand. Finance Minister Oleksandr Shlapak (former Komsomol leaders of the regional scale, and they are able to take other people’s money) is explained in the beginning of the year (when the war up close and did not smell!) That costs for Ukrainian army increased by 50%, because “we need tangible preload” funds for medicine, “social” and even begging the agricultural sector. After the start of the military operation against the eastern regions, these costs have doubled or even tripled. According to official data, in 2014 the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine has received about $ 1 billion., Still more than 11 million dollars. Army was given as a charitable support. Until the end of the year to carry out punitive operations in the east of Ukraine plans to spend $ 800 million.
However, according to the Ministry of Defense, the Army “to ensure necessary” only 30-40%. However, the president Poroshenko once atonement for his high office, immediately promised that “Ukrainian soldiers never to be naked and barefoot.” For additional funding for the troops even introduced a special “war tax” of 1.5% of the income of citizens of Ukraine, which should give an additional $ 300 million.

In general, these millions and billions of dollars and hryvnia – a lot of money for any country and for Ukraine – especially. Ukrainian economy is in a serious crisis, writes the magazine «Forbes». And emphasizes that the earlier the Ukrainian government has reached an agreement with the IMF to provide loans to 17.01 billion dollars., Moreover, that as of September, the country had only 16.3 billion dollars. Reserves. National Bank of Ukraine on November 3, said that the country will pay the current debt to “Gazprom” and for not yet delivered gas just at the expense of foreign reserves. It is expected that this year the payments will be $ 4.5 billion.

However, the soldiers found themselves in a combat zone, and volunteers, volunteer to help the Ukrainian army, still paint a bleak picture: the majority of the military is not only no body armor and helmets, but often the tents and sleeping bags. Units not even got to the ambiance, do not have proper nutrition, and forced to produce it themselves (rob civilians to seek out “grass” food). Similar reports come from different parts of the Ukrainian army throughout the period of armed conflict.
 
Lack of water, medicines, basic hygiene products for the Ukrainian army became the norm. However, we do not pity them. But here’s a fact I can not accept indifferently. In late October, the former Minister for Social Policy (2012-2014) Natalie King said that the lack of funds in the Pension Fund may lead to the fact that in November many of the 13.6 million seniors will not receive a pension. Or again: Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko recently complained to journalists that “on the nutrition of children in kindergartens and schools have money left over for two weeks.” A need, according to the chairman of the budget committee of city council A. Strannikova, before the year is 100 million USD. Already two months salaries are not paid employees of KP “Kievmetrostroy”, there are many other financial “holes” …

And this is in a prosperous capital, and what is happening in other regions? Ukrainian “backwoods” is already on the verge of survival … And please compare gigantic amounts going to the “needs” of the army and the necessary food to children in the same financial crumbs. The figures are not comparable.
But no one in the state still have not bothered to ask the obvious question: why is the water in the sand left the funds that were released to finance punitive action?

Apparently, quite deliberately not specified.
Here, for example, in some Ukrainian media “skip” information that is used in the Donbass 152-mm self-propelled “MSTA-S”. Military experts explained that the high-precision laser-guided missiles of these self-propelled howitzers allow you to destroy the enemy, minimizing civilian casualties. Lies, of course, the essence of an entirely different. The expert explained that only one shot of “Msta” worth 200 thousand. USD. – Is about 600 thousand. Rubles., And who will be able to calculate how much so already written off the money “at war” and more will be written off?
Every day, the fighting cost Kiev, according to Poroshenko, to 6 million USD. Experts called the figure even 7 million. According to them, the cost of lost Ukraine airplanes, helicopters and armored personnel carriers have already made more than $ 100 million.
At the same time arms dealers gladly calculate profits. If before, for example, a Kalashnikov rifle sold for 500 “buck”, but now it will not give less, than for 1100-1200. And after Lugansk Cartridge Plant was brought under control by militias LC, each cartridge Kalashnikov participants ATO was 10 times more expensive.
Apparently, based on the complete idiots bankers of Ukraine urged people to return the removed deposits. Savings Ukrainian citizens stored “under the mattress” – this is the “blood” in which so require banks. This was at a briefing in the National Bank of Ukraine said the other day the representatives of commercial banks. “Exchange rate stability – is our shared responsibility – said the Chairman of the Board of Sberbank Andrei Lush. – Approximately $ 8 billion. Now lie “under the mattress.” Return them to the Ukrainian economy, let breathe economy. Search equilibrium in the economy – our common goal. ” Chairman of the bank “Credit Agricole” Eugene Chemeris compared the savings of citizens with the blood of the financial system and encouraged them to donate money for the welfare of the banking system:
Now there is a war. Just as we hand over the blood-donor for the soldiers, we must pour the blood into the financial system, the country’s economy. We note in passing that every week under the building of the National Bank in Kiev rallies defrauded investors who complain that they can not withdraw their deposits, but their voices and do not want to hear, and hear not, though quite nearby is the Presidential Administration.
In this situation, somehow, even embarrassing to recall that, for example, that the total personal income of the current Prime Minister of Ukraine Yatsenyuk on the results of 2013 amounted to nearly 2 million USD., And president of Poroshenko – 51,830,000 USD .

Moreover, the International Investment Bank (IIB), whose owner is actually the president Poroshenko because it directly and indirectly owns approximately 59% of the shares since the beginning of 2014 increased its assets by 50%.
Meanwhile, according to the Constitution of Ukraine, the President of the country is forbidden to assume leadership positions in business. Therefore, an international investment bank and a company that owns half of its shares, it is not included in the manual. The company is headed by his father Alexei Poroshenko (Valtsman). The head of the National Bank of Ukraine Valery Gontareva question edition of “Radio Liberty”, which was published this information: Are there any signs of abuse in the rapid growth of income and the cost of such banks as IIS? – Noted that the reason for the rapid growth may be fluctuations in the dollar. Disingenuous pani banker. “Radio Liberty” directly links the growth of the bank’s assets exclusively with its owner – the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. Incidentally, the bank does not hide its head of state supplies all the data is on the site.

But when the industry “bent”, flows into the domestic market collapse, and the banking system is in a state of PIS, the war becomes almost the easiest way to grow your business. To incite a war of the oligarchs and politicians – easy, but deadly for the rest of the people. However, the Ukrainian people have now the power that was worthy: eyes have seen that chooses … The latest example: the National Guard under the buses purchased from a former business partner Poroshenko 31 million hryvnia (about 92.6 million rubles). On September 19 the Ukrainian media reported. Bus manufacturer company “Bogdan Motors” is a corporation “Bogdan” Oleg Svinarchuk, a business partner of President of Ukraine, which in 2009 he was co-owner of this business. Interestingly, the company received an order without a tender. This was told the publication “Nashі groshі” referring to the “Bulletin of the public procurement.” But is it for someone a secret war in the Donbas is profitable to many Ukrainian businessmen?

So, in June gostender fuel supply companies to the tune of 6.2 million dollars. Won the company, part of the fuel group of people’s deputy Igor Eremeeva. When they began to understand, it was found out that the price of fuel is overestimated by 3-5 times.
And about the profits that made himself oligarch Igor Kolomoisky in “nezalezhnoy” already legends.

image

Recently it became known that his company is in late spring to get most of the contracts from the Ministry of Defence for the supply of fuel for the army. The price of the contract was nearly $ 16 million. Although until recently, many Ukrainian media confidently wrote that this noble man runs the equipment operational command “South” at his own expense. Certainly not! In addition, at least every third hryvnia released after the beginning of hostilities by the National Bank for liquidity and rate of the Ukrainian national currency, goes to the notorious “Privatbank”, controlled by the same Igor Kolomoisky.

Austrian edition «Contra Magazin» recently published material in which journalists have come to the conclusion that the oligarchs, including Poroshenko, cashing in on the so-called antiterrorist operation (ATO). The money that “nezalezhna” receives from the West, are, primarily, on the support of the army and the defense industry.

The authors claim: companies that perform government contracts, own oligarchs, including the very Poroshenko (№1284 in the global ranking of billionaires version «Forbes», state – $ 1.3 billion.)

Thus, at the expense of the public treasury moguls increase their already solid capital, while the citizens of the country in which the left and so little money, are forced to pay higher taxes and suffer from reduced social benefits.

In Ukraine, the mass action cynical schemes by which military lobby richer, says political analyst Sergei Mikheyev.
In the spring it was obvious that there was quite a lot of people who are on the so-called ATO make good money. A striking example – Mr. Kolomoisky. In addition to various frauds with fuel, flak jackets and the like, are used more “gray” schemes related to “Privatbank”: it is known that the oligarch lists participants ATO fees through your bank card.

image

There were rumors that people money on the card come, but here is to use them they can not. The scam is simple: “Privatbank” skims funds, and hopes that one or the other recipient of money in the end die.

But of those who profit from the ATO, catch the hand can only warlords. They get the money before the fight, but give them to the soldiers after the fighting, not to pay the victims, while specifying that they are either missing or poisoned “counterfeit” vodka …

Such frauds are easy to prove, but none are not engaged. Yes, and would not engage in this “stuff” on a background of total corruption, built by the war in the rank of state policy.

Kiev analyst Oleg Bondarenko said that, from a business perspective, there are forces interested in the escalation of the war:
How Poroshenko personally interested in military action, I have no information. I can only say that he was ready for war even before he became president. So, in private conversations tycoon called for tough military action against the Donbass. How he has a personal interest in the sale of weapons, hard to say, but it can be assumed that such an interest in the case.
And Igor Kolomoisky gives television interview in which he declares the beginning of a new wave of property. Kolomoysky lists of what to take and share. In it the assets of his sworn rivals: the once richest Ukrainians Rinat Akhmetov – he planned to take Dneprenergo, Dneproblenergo, operator Ukrtelecom; and oligarch Dmitry Firtash. Kolomoisky liked Zaporozhye Titanium-Magnesium Works and fertilizer producer “Sumykhimprom”. They say that these plans are already being put into practice. The group “Privat” Igor Kolomoisky start press down under all the more assets.

“Private” – the most aggressive and active player of the corporate sector to seize the assets and businesses for the purchase depressed. These companies continue to control, telling the tale of a beautiful ATO assistance to widows and children. Very profitable, hiding behind revolutionary rhetoric – fog of war – to take away property “, – says Andrey Semididko, head of anti-raider Union of Entrepreneurs of Ukraine. Himself, by the way, the entrepreneur, is now engaged in a struggle with the raiders. Says a redistribution of property has not been since the 1990s. It started when recently to local authorities new people came. “They were engaged in looting. Attempts weaning property: capture buildings, shopping areas, markets, even for a short period of time bring the lease payments – says Semididko.

Ukrainian oligarchs, note there is anyone to learn. The tense situation in Ukraine in recent months is for American defense companies an excellent opportunity to increase revenue. Thus, the head of the concern «Lockheed Martin» Marilyn Hewson said in an interview with German newspaper «Welt am Sonntag», that Ukrainian crisis will help boost sales MEADS missile system and the new generation fighter F-35 NATO countries, primarily – in Europe. Thus, in the military-industrial complex of the United States is well aware that the tension in the Ukraine – a great opportunity to “make money” intimidate Europe vusmert “Russian aggression”. Most of the Ukrainian population under the influence of militaristic propaganda has long rest assured that at the eastern border troops are fighting the Russian army.

Report from Donbass War Theater. Kiev Switches To “Strategic Defense” by Colonel Cassad LiveJournal

Report from Donbass War Theater. Kiev Switches To “Strategic Defense”
by Colonel Cassad LiveJournal (Russian) POSTED

The events of recent days clearly indicate that the Kiev Junta is switching to strategic defense tactic in the Donbass.
1. The positions around Mariupol, Artemovsk, Constantinovka, and Lisichansk are being fortified.

image

This is no longer about using these cities as bases for an offensive, we are talking about trying to hold them in defensive battles. The Militia should accomplish putting an end to the shelling of Donetsk in about a week. The Junta will try to keep shelling for political reasons; as the cessation of terror attacks on Donetsk would be a clear symptom of a complete disaster, even for the most brainwashed “European Ukrainians”
2. Leaving more than 20 settlements in Lugansk People’s Republic(“LPR”) with open flanks shows that attempts encircle the city are over. Junta forces that can be saved, will be pulled out of the boiler to the south-west of Luhansk, then the front will slowly move away to the north of Lugansk, because in its current configuration, Junta is risking enveloping strikes by Novorossiya Armed Forces (“NAF”) mechanized units. A huge column of armored vehicles in Krasnodon demonstrates the potential power of such attacks, against which the Junta simply has nothing.

image

3. The Junta is moving troops from Perekop to Mariupol and Odessa. We can now say goodbye to the plans of military provocations by Armyansk and Chongar. The huge losses of the “Crimea” punitive battalion by Ilovaysk have also seriously weakened the potential future reconnaissance and sabotage capacities in Crimea proper. The Junta initially made a fundamental error when it began massing a part of its forces by Perekop. They were not sufficient to capture Crimea, or to fend off a Russian invasion from the Crimea, and it is quite possible that several battalions with reinforcements were exactly what the Junta lacked in the decisive battles for Shahtersk and Krasnyi Luch. In the end, they still had to be redeployed to the Donbass, but only after they could no longer change anything, strategically. The Crimea itself has now been completely taken out of the equation; the Junta now has too much to deal with elsewhere, so the ambitious plans of military and political pressure on the Crimea are apparently dead for now.
4. A similar pattern of events has occurred in the area near Transnistria. The forces that the Junta had concentrated there have now been redeployed to Donbass to close holes in the front lines. The plan of combined pressure against Transnistria, together with the United States and Moldova, turned out to be stillborn. Now there are no chances for a successful offensive there, so nothing serious will be deployed against Transnistria.
5. The Junta’s fourth wave of mobilization is supposed to somehow make up for their losses, but its “success” will be similar to the third wave. The fact that the fresh cannon fodder are being equipped with obsolete BTR-60/70 APCs (Armoured Personnel Carriers) and machine guns from the 1930s clearly indicates that those unfit for service will also be armed with obsolete weapons, so ground down professional army brigades will be replaced with the new “Ukrainian Volkssturm” – pointless and depressing, and even the punitive battalions will appear capable in comparison to these new forces.
6. The Junta persists in the separation of army units from punitive forces. Punitive units are now even given tanks and IFVs, thus repeating the failed experiment of the Nazis, separating individual units of the SS from the rest of the armed forces, with their own hierarchy, equipment and command. The main problem in these units is lack of competent commanders, which systematically results in high losses of personnel and vehicles.
7. Thus, the autumn starts with the Junta in transition from offence to defense, and there are clearly not enough resources to hold the entire line; even after the front is straightened out. It should be understood that even if the Junta could stretch a solid front line from Donetsk to Berdyansk, there would be nothing available to close a gap in the event of another breakthrough. In general, the size of the theater of operations clearly exceeds the abilities of the warring parties. The Junta is facing the same problem faced by the NAF in June, when it was trying to hold large areas without sufficient forces to do so, which led to breaks in the front. Now the Junta is in the same situation, thus emphasizing that operational initiative is the key to victory, in the event one lacks sufficient forces to control large swathes of territory. The side which has the operational initiative can choose the direction of attack, concentrate forces there, achieve local superiority, and convert these efforts to captured towns and cities; and burning enemy vehicles with charred corpses lying along the roads.
8. As the Junta cannot seize the initiative back yet (the concentration of 1-2 brigades by Zaporozhye, to be used for counter-attack, requires a few more days), it began a retreat, during which it tried to free up additional forces for the southern front and transition to a stubborn defense of advantageous positions. It is now key for the NAF to keep the operational initiative, as it more than offsets the advantages of the enemy in manpower and vehicles. In this respect, while carrying out offensives in several directions, it is important not to overdo it and not to expose the flanks to cleaving strikes of Junta’s mechanized forces (the NAF still had trouble parrying these strikes as late as August).
Overall, as of September 3rd, we can confidently say that the fascist Junta has switched to strategic defense in the Donbass.

REDLINE CROSSING 2.0

                        REDLINE CROSSING 2.0

It seems as though every summer there is a new red line crossed by a country and its  leader deemed to be a threat to the NWOs quest for global fascism,  monetary domination, Israeli expansion and exploitation.
Last summer the “red line crossed”  was Syria and Bashar al-Assad; this summer Russia and Vladimir Putin are on the agenda. Previous their was Lybia and Ghadaffi; Iraq and  Saddam Hussein; Milosevic in  Yugoslavia and Bin Laden/Mullah Omar  in  Afghanistan. 
These wars and slaughters of aggression were conducted by NATO against non-nuclear states with impunity.  Having failed in Syria, in part due to Russian, Chinese  and Iranian/Hezbollah resistance, the NWO has now turned its venomous head ie.  US in Russia’s direction.
  Too cowardly to war with Russia directly, NATO instead has installed a Nazi junta in Ukraine, using and expanding decades old animosities to wage its proxy war.  Provocations to lure Russia directly into the bloody conflict have failed.  Plans by NATO to takeover Crimea, Sevastopol and the Russian Black Sea Fleet naval facilities were stymied by the expressed will and self determination of the brave people who live there. After having viewed the junta as the viscous thugs that they are.  Within this backdrop of failure and frustration a new plan was hatched that included using mass media as a weapon.  Lets take a snapshot of a typical information barrage from NATOs poster boy Anders Fohgs Rasmussen

Rasmussen (NATO high command) -“we have lots of information that indicate separatists supported by Russians are guilty”. #MH17

Anders apparently is once again  referring to social media tweets and posts; stitched together with statements from the puppet regime in Kiev and off it goes to the press. NATO countries corporate sponsored magazines and newspapers – Time, Globe, Washington Times, NY Post, Newsweek, Enquirer  et al. employ vast numbers of cartoonists and writers with fond memories of the Cold War days and scare tactics featuring the red menace as a central theme.   These tabloid “news” organizations together with their complicit counterparts in television form a matrix of disinformation.
The corporate owned editors, journalists and associates   all hope to financially benefit from towing the NATO  line as well as keeping their jobs and  staying alive. Western journalists and others who write stories exposing the machinations of NATO become targets.  #Hastings
Fear mongering apparently is a required  course in western schools of journalism, as they  all in unison keep  repeating and repeating the NATO driven conspiracy theory, (Putin did it) with imminent Russian Army invasions and the reconstruction of the Soviet Union, complete with personal depictions of Vladimir Putin  as evil incarnate.   Much the same way as  was said and written about Syrias Bashar al-Assad  in last years redline crossing. #Syria 21_Aug._2013 Ghouta

Bogus  conjecture, lies, posts and tweets all  woven into a fear producing blanket production, with a comic book narrative. Perfect mk brainwashing for summertime pooltime reading, viewing and public topic!
So the “information” which the  Foghs of war  alludes to  is not actually credible; one such example were images having been presented by the SBU 30 July  as images from Ukrainian satellites, subsequent analysis has determined that the images were in fact made from a US satellite. 
“At the time specified in the images, the American electro-optical reconnaissance satellite of the Key Hole series was flying over the crash site area.” These fraudulent images prove only one thing, desperation on the part of Kiev to shift blame and the unwillingness of US Space Command to admit ownership. 
No, this “lots of information” which is all the feeble minded and fearful  western press needs to or is allowed to print, is nothing more than empty accusations, fanciful scenarios, speculations, downright lies, and  fraudulent photos all printed up, packaged and served back to mass medias poster boy  Anders to begin the fear  cycle anew. 

Information carousel, round and round it goes, never having to present any facts backed up with credible evidence.

It is not necessary for the western  authorities  to present verifiable facts when the press does not even dare  ask, much less demand verifiable evidence to support the empire’s reckless and discredited accusations. The so called “free press”, long viewed   as a bulwark of democracy has been torn down and scrapped in favor of an authentic reproduction of an Orwellian propaganda machine.
In addition to serving up nonesense, the western press dutifully suppresses facts, eyewitness accounts and all evidence that implicates or holds responsible  the US installed regime in Kiev for the loss of 298 lives. 
The latest storyline from the corrupted “investigators”, is that  the report on MH17 is scheduled to be released in Sept. 2014; unless that changes in favor of a hermetically sealed  time capsule to be opened in fifty years. 
This late and unprecedented delay has been attributed to conditions on the ground at the scene of the crash,  and yet the sealed “black boxes” or  flight recorders were turned over by Novorossiya government officials  within days to  representatives from  Malaysia. The Ukrainian   air traffic control recordings have not been released, after the Ukrainian security services (SBU) seized them.

The myth perpetuated by the NATO stooges  (Putin did it) and repeated ad-nauseum by a subservient press  has been created.

By Sept. people in the west will have built their fairy-tale into a socially accepted premise which will be politically incorrect to dispute.  By Sept.   facts will be forgotten, and ignored.  The “report” will in no way detract or refute  the original spurious and unsubstantiated  accusations made by the fukus axis against Russia and Putin personally. These conclusions had been advanced and regurgitated  even  before the smoke had cleared or even basic facts known. 
One thing is indisputable, a commercial airliner was directed to fly over a conflict zone (a dozen or more aircraft having been shot down between April 13 -July 17) which in and of itself constitutes a strong case for criminal negligence and a contributing factor for international flights to route avoiding Ukrainian airspace altogether.  It seems the traveling public has no desire to be under control of Ukraine ATC,  go figure! 
This inconvienience (war zone sight seeing tour gone bad)  was originally explained as a necessity because of weather conditions, proven to be  disinformation  and yet not surprisingly, never retracted. 
Previous statements from the junta in Kiev  had attempted to defend  MH17s peculiar and singular flight path
   (previous 10 flights were in an air corridor 400 miles to the south) against these implications, by pointing out  that the independence fighters in SE Ukraine, aka pro-Russian  separtists are not in possession of surface to air missiles capable of bringing down an aircraft from that height.
Having to keep the story alive it was postulated that the Russians had shortly prior to July 17 moved a BUK-1  system into Ukraine. The “evidence” for this was a photo taken in a junta controlled town of a Ukr army BUK and tweeted out for the matrix to cite as proof.  Aircraft flying at high altitudes such as MH17 was are not currently being used for punitive bombing operations so it remains unclear why the militia would have need for the BUK much less the skills and technical expertise to operate the system.
  The use and deployment of a complex SAM system which includes an IFF capability (IFF stands for identification friend or foe,   is an identification ability which distinguishes planes based on aviation transponders which intermittently emit an electronic signature) does not lend itself well to the theory of ad hoc in the field training. 
Although the BUK system consists of four parts, each one integrated onto separate track vehicles which  includes  radar tracking and target acquisition separate from the actual missile delivery vehicle, mainstream media continues to portray the BUK as though it was nothing more than a simple single defensive  weapon and user friendly (perhaps operable with a smartphone app)  and  with a minimum amount of training required.
  Why the Russian Defense Ministry would provide a sophisticated SAM system  and the training to the militia in addition to delivering it to an unstable conflict zone complete with personnel defies logic.A hare-brained scheme such as that would have to have been invented by those who once  mulled the possibility of arming  their proxy fighters  fsa/nusra  in Syria with SAMs. 
  Clearly the NATO / FUKUS  story was not intended to withstand critical analysis, which if it did arise would be ignored or attributed to “Russian propaganda”. All that was needed was to create a public perception in order to achieve the NWO goals. 
1) The US got the sanctions that it wanted in order to drive a wedge between the EU vassal states and Russia.
2) NATO got an increased reason for its existence. 3) Western arms manufacturers and merchants got sales. 
4) The Kiev junta got a 9/11 moment, to cast the separatists as terrorists and an increase in military aid with a pretext for the brutal and murderous assaults against the civilian population carried out by proxy against Russia in SE Ukraine.

5)  The MH17 tragedy was described by NATO as a “game changer”, a sort of redline moment.
Another redline had been crossed, this time in Ukraine. Yet again, another opportunity for the “international  community” to shriek their indignation and prepare for war. 
6)  Fifteen minutes after the Malaysian MH17 crashed the Palestine occupiers aka Israel commenced a brutal campaign against Gaza which to date continues.
7) The EU did in fact in the words of Americas top diplomat and matron of maidan the distinguished  victoria nuland got “fuc*ed”. 
8) Malaysia is home to an   international war crimes court already having found Israel guilty of war crimes. With all the drama and vast amount of television coverage of #MH17 there was reduced coverage and notice of Israels genocidal  pogrom in Gaza. So in effect MH17 provided a  geo-political smokescreen  while punishing Malaysia for “second guessing” the psycho and chief Nettybooboo.
As the world prepares for war with humanity, carbon based life  and the planet itself  put at risk, the criminally insane in washington and  tel-aviv develop plans for  nuclear first strike. What was once unthinkable has become an apocalyptic option.   The “chosen and exceptional people” have delusional plans for genocidal world conquest which  first requires that they lose any vestige of humanity.

The Summer of 1964 Gulf of Tonkin

We look back on The Gulf of Tonkin

image

Incident that occured fifty years ago and the provocative covert acts against North Viet Nam by the US Navy, CIA, US Army, NSA et al- and local forces under the command of the US installed  Saigon government.
Ultimately as the years of war ground on replete with body counts, medals and corporate profits there  ensued  millions of people who were killed  and generations of both Vietnamese and western forces including  their  descendants adversely effected from exposure to  chemical warfare-Monsanto “agent orange”, depleted uranium and atrocities. 
The Viet Nam war demoralized and shattered  the US nation; historians seldom view it as anything other than a defeat and collosal blunder.
  Fifty years later there is once again howling and yapping from people (who’s own children will stay safely out of  any militarily intervention) in another civil war  -Ukraine. Once again there is yet another incident which perhaps decades from now the true story of will be revealed.  #MH17

    BEATING THE DRUMS FOR WAR

Evidence to support the claims made by potus was  non-existent on the night of August 4 1964, when Lyndon Johnson broadcast the administrations version and conclusions to the American public.
Messages recorded that day indicate that rather than the MSM version of the event being true President Johnson and Secretary McNamara engaged in pushing a story that was later shown to be false, and misleading. 

image

Conclusions based on fabrications and recanted reports were the order of the day. 
  The “free press” rather than inquire  for authenticated evidence eagerly spread the dis-information. Time, Life and Newsweek, ran articles throughout August 1964 on the Tonkin Gulf incident.
Time reported:”Through the darkness, from the west and south…intruders boldly sped…at least six of them… they opened fire on the destroyers with automatic weapons, this time from as close as 2,000 yards.”
The use of the Tonkin Gulf  tale served as a pretext for escalation and military intervention of U.S. in Viet Nam.

     “THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY”

Public threats against North Vietnam, as well as calls from politicians in favor of “bombing them into the stone age” began concurrently with a media blitz to convince the public for their support.
North Vietnamese General Giap stated  that the US actions were done to “to provoke North Viet Nam” which was immediately dismissed as “communist propaganda”.
Actually the #US defense strategists had been planning provocative actions against North Vietnam for some time. George Ball told a British journalist after the war that
“at that time…many people…were looking for any excuse to initiate bombing”.
Raymond McGovern, a retired CIA officer,is quoted as saying :  “President Lyndon Johnson, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and National Security Adviser McGeorge Bundy all knew full well that the evidence of any armed attack on the evening of Aug. 4, 1964”.. (the so-called part two of the Tonkin Gulf incident) “was highly dubious”.
Apparently months prior to Aug.  President Johnson with the Joint Chiefs of Staff had conspired and planned for war in Vietnam.

The USS Maddox, on 28 July 1964 was dispatched for patrol duty off the coast of Viet Nam. Opeating as  an electronic signals gathering ship its mission in addition to provocation and probing General Giaps defenses was to sail within the territorial waters of Viet  Nam purportedly within 8 miles of the coastline.

Fifty years have passed since the US was mislead into a disastrous war that divided one country and destroyed another.
  Now once again we see history on the verge of repeating itself. While the advent of the internet has come since then ,  this seems to allow for flimsy “evidence” to serve as a pretext -“In the posts of two or three tweets shall every bogus  word of Harf be established. ”

DOES KIEV JUNTA SEEK WMD?

Ukrainian Rada is keen to denounce treaty on non proliferation of nuclear weapons.  Which coupled with the threats having been shrieked from the lips of leading politicians and junta members, constitutes a cause for concern.  With Ukraine being a puppet state having been violently installed by a US/EU cabal there can be little doubt as to the support from the US/EU towards this as either an unacceptable reality or an implied threat.

MPs offered to denounce a treaty on non-proliferation of nuclear weapons

Ukraine acceded to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in 1994, together with the Budapest Memorandum, which was to ensure her safety.
Verkhovna Rada

The deputies of the faction “Rodina” and “shock” brought to Parliament a draft law on denunciation of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons of 1 July 1968.

The bill made MPs Sergey Kaplin (IMPACT), Valentine Koroliuk and Alexander Chornovolenko (both – “Homeland”). The text of the bill or other relevant documents on the website of the Parliament yet.

The Parliament of Ukraine of 16 November 1994 adopted a law “On Ukraine’s Accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons of 1 July 1968” with some reservations, including listed that the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity and inviolability of borders or political independence of Ukraine from any nuclear power, as well as the use of economic pressure that seeks to subordinate to their own interest the exercise by Ukraine of the rights inherent in its sovereignty, “Ukraine will be considered as exceptional circumstances that have jeopardized its supreme interests” .

The law gained force after the nuclear powers Ukraine security guarantees issued by signing a treaty.

December 5, 1994 signed the so-called Budapest Memorandum – International treaty between Ukraine, USA, Russia and Britain on security guarantees in connection with Ukraine’s accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The agreement contains items that provide guarantees of Ukraine’s sovereignty and security.

Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons – multilateral international certificate issued by the UN disarmament with a view to establish obstacle to expanding the range of the nuclear-weapon States to provide the necessary

In a move largely unnoticed in the West, Yulia Tymoshenko’s “Fatherland” and Vitaliy Klitschko’s “Strike” political parties jointly introduced a draft law (0076) in the Ukrainian Parliament to denounce the country’s 1994 accession to the 1968 Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), with the goal of withdrawing from the treaty. That same day, member of parliament Oleh Lyashko of the “Radical Democratic” party demanded Ukraine regain its status as a nuclear-weapons state.
Lyashko introduced a draft law (4518) regarding Ukraine’s entry into NATO and the EU control over the implementation of international powers assumed obligations under the Agreement. 

Approved by the General Assembly June 12, 1968 and opened for signature on July 1, 1968 in Moscow, Washington and London. Entered into force March 5, 1970 after the deposit of instruments of ratification by the depositary (the USSR (signed 1968), the USA (1968), UK (1968), as well as 40 other countries.

The future of Europe is one of dark portent as the forces in power begin the ominous steps towards their stated goals of becoming a nuclear power.  Having seen their brutality and murderous rampage against the Russian speaking countrymen in the SE Ukraine the prospect of them gaining control of nuclear weaponry is not a wise course.  The Ukrainian Rada that august body better known for its fist fights for settling matters; now lobbys for permission to acquire nuclear weapons with washingtons tacit approval.

NAZI AMERIKA

Explaining  the US support for the lebensraum doctrine of using genocide and Nazis modern day reformulation in Ukraine.

Requires an in depth study of history, and myths a  perspective not seen in text books.

Item one -the nazi 3rd Reich in Germany was for the most part viewed favorably by the US public of the 1930s in addition extensive busines industrial and banking were linked. Had operation Barabossa (launched by Hitler to conquor Russia 22 June 1941) succeeded it is doubtful that the US would have entered the war.
In fact, the Normandy invasion was not done to crush the nazis as much as it was launched to rescue them; and to insure that the Soviet forces did not occupy all of Europe.
The core conflict was capitalism ideaology vs Marxist ideaology.
Hitler launched a campaign based on lebensraum which was in many ways parallel to Americas westward expansion.  Using   genocide against the “inferior” race of indigenous people.  Hitlers regard as the Slavs being sub-human mimicked the same doctrines being promulgated against Native Americans and in Mein Kampf he shared those views.  Today many in the US are in the dark and kept there by lack of knowledge due to control mechanisms placed on the fascist western media by the ruling elite who have exposed themselves by their support of the fascist junta in Kiev.
Also in full view is the clear difference between zionism and Judaism, even as zionists continue to portray themselves as Jewish the stark differences are apparent, consider how zionists support the very groups which call for the genocide of Jews and yet still hide behind the fig leaf of Judaism to thwart critical analysis and condemnation.  How could a Jewish person possibly condone the hateful and malevolent ideaology of Stephan Bandera?

Statement by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko that Crimea was, is and will be “Ukrainian land,” has caused a sharp reaction from the Jewish  professor Ilan Sade. Researcher in the field of computer science, known for his many years of struggle for the rights of Holocaust survivors, called the newspaper “Haaretz” statement Poroshenko “cry robbed Cossack” – an expression taken from the Hebrew proverb analogue thief shouting “stop thief!”
Professor Sade, the son of the Red Army soldier, a native of Volyn, whose entire family perished in the Holocaust, said that Ukraine remains one of the states  refusing to return Jewish property taken during the Second World War. “The argument against the return of the same -” Ukrainian land, “- he writes. – That Jews had built most of the settlements in Volhynia and some of them were the majority. In Rivne, Lviv, Lutsk and other Jewish influence was very strong; Jewish communities have done much for the development of their economic and cultural life. ”
After the annexation of Western Ukraine to the USSR as a result of the Molotov-Ribbentrop began expropriating Jewish property, recalls the author, whose family also did not escape confiscation. Since the beginning of the war the same physical extermination of the Jews by the Germans with the active participation of Ukrainians who, not without pleasure robbed of their good neighbors, occupying their houses and apartments.
“I returned to Ukraine during Yushchenko’s presidency – says professor. – I was surprised to find in the archives Exactly all documentation about the trial of” capitalists “of the number of my family with a detailed description of the process of alienation and seizure of their property – as in Soviet times, so and during the Nazi occupation. Armed with these documents, I contacted the local authorities and President Yushchenko, demanding the return of the property. answer was simple: the communist regime was gone, and with it the need to forget all of his decisions. ”
In conclusion, the author sadly notes that the government in Tel Aviv has done absolutely nothing towards the restitution of property taken from Ukrainian Jews. According to Sade, the government of the Jewish state de facto entered in “Rogue collusion” with the Ukrainian authorities.

Naziism was not eradicated from the earth after the Great Patriotic War but rather it relocated in large measure to North America infesting;  often times posing  as benevolent Jewish groups such as aipac  which have now been unmasked for all the world to see as zionist supporters of Nazi. 
Nazi military armies  has been hatched  under the banner of NATO which ostensibly is a defensive organization; however the reality of that is known to be untrue. NATO THE BEAST WITHIN

Introduction

This study covers the period from the end of November 2013 to the end of March 2014 and deals with the situation with human rights and the rule of law that emerged in Ukraine as a result of a violent seizure of power and unconstitutional coup.
As a factual basis, a careful monitoring of Ukrainian, Russian and some Western media reports was conducted, covering statements and announcements made by the leaders of the “new government” of Ukraine and their supporters, numerous eyewitness accounts, including those posted on the Internet, as well as records based on observations and interviews with people on the scene, and those collected by non-governmental organization The Foundation for Researching Problems in Democracy, and the Moscow Bureau for Human Rights.
Excerpts from the basic international documents on human rights whose universal regulations and standards have been violated in Ukraine during the indicated period precede each section of this study.
We do not claim to report exhaustively in this White Book all tragic events that took place in Ukraine. Nonetheless, the present list of the most flagrant violations of fundamental international norms of human rights and the rule of law committed in this country, by ultranationalist, neo-Nazi, and extremist forces which have monopolized the Euromaidan protests, far from being exhaustive, gives enough grounds to claim that such violations were widespread.
The essential task of this White Book is to focus on facts to which the international community and key international human rights bodies, as well as relevant non- governmental organizations have not shown proper and impartial attention.

The history of the twentieth century has given tragic lessons which would be irresponsible and also at times just unlawful to ignore. The White Book is a signal to those who have forgotten this or pretend to forget. Those who cynically, in pursuit of their own selfish interests and under the guise of good intentions and pseudo-democratic demagogy, are plunging a multimillion multi-ethnic Ukrainian population into extremism, lawlessness, and a deep crisis of national identity.
The onslaught of racism, xenophobia, ethnic intolerance, the glorification of the Nazis and their Banderite sycophants should be brought to a speedy end through the united efforts of the Ukrainian people and the international community. The alternative is fraught with so devastating consequences for peace, stability, and democratic development in Europe, that it is absolutely necessary to prevent further escalation of this situation.

Violations of the right to life, violations of public order and safety, the use of torture, inhuman treatment and committed iniquity

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (December 16, 1966)

No restrictions may be placed on the exercise of this right other than those imposed in conformity with the law and which are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security or public safety, public order (ordre public), the protection of public health or morals or the protection of the rights and freedoms of others.
Article 26. All persons are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to the equal protection of the law.

Convention for the Protection of Human Rights
and Fundamental Freedoms (Rome, November 4, 1950)
Article 2. Everyone’s right to life shall be protected by law. No one shall be deprived of his life intentionally save in the execution of a sentence of a court following his conviction of a crime for which this penalty is provided by law.
Deprivation of life shall not be regarded as inflicted in contravention of this article when it results from the use of force which is no more than absolutely necessary … in action lawfully taken for the purpose of quelling a riot or insurrection.

Supporters of Pravyi Sektor entrenched themselves on the fifth floor of the House of Trade Unions. Party activists in AUU Svoboda actually took control of the Kiev City State Administration building. The headquarters for one of the most radical groups of protesters, the neo-Nazi youth group Sich/C14, were located in this building. (The group, headed by Evgeny Karas, leans towards AUU Svoboda). The apogee of violence against the legitimate authorities, occurring on December 1, 2013, was an attempt to break through the Interior Ministry troops and police officer cordon on

Females who were present in the building were stripped half-naked, their backs were painted with symbols and slogans, and then they were kicked out into the street. D. Svyatash, Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Supreme Council) deputy for the Party of Regions, was severely beaten.
February 18, 2014. Supporters of Euromaidan attempted to capture the Interior Ministry and Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) buildings in Ternopil and Ivano- Frankivsk regions, in order to appropriate weapons.

After refusing, he was thrown on his knees, which caused him to smash his forehead on the ground. Five liters of water were poured on him, and then he was cuffed to the stage again. When that did not work, the Euromaidan activists took the governor away in an unknown direction and sent a group of thugs to his house to intimidate his family members.
February 19, 2014. Near the town of Korsun-Shevchenkovsky (Cherkassy region), several buses with passengers, who were returning to Crimea from protests against European integration at St. Michael’s Square in Kiev, were fired upon and stopped at the barricades, where the flags of the UPA, the Udar (Strike) party and AUU Svoboda were flying. The people, both men and women, were dragged out of the buses through a «corridor» of militants who beat them with bats and entrenching shovels. Then the passengers were knocked down in a heap on the roadside, doused with gasoline, and threatened to be set on fire. According to witnesses, militants from the crowd shouted: «Just wait, we’re going to come and get you in Crimea. We are going to stab you and shoot you, that is, those of you who we haven’t already beaten

to a pulp and shot up yet». After that, many Crimeans were forced to take off their shoes «for the needs of Maidan soldiers», and they were driven around the buses like cattle and forced to pick up the broken glass. The humiliation and abuse continued for several hours. There were casualties among the victims. Most of the buses were burned. The local police, who arrived at the scene, chose not to intervene.
February 21, 2014. People’s Self-Defense activists fired at a bus with Belarusian tourists who were traveling to Western Ukraine. As a result, the bus driver, a Russian citizen, was hospitalized with a gunshot wound.
February 21, 2014. The President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and the leaders of the three opposition parties — Vladimir Klitschko (Udar), A. Yatsenyuk (AUU Batkivshchyna), and O. Tyagnibok (AUU Svoboda) — signed an agreement on resolving the crisis in Ukraine, mediated by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Germany, Poland, and France, which included a return to the 2004 Constitution, constitutional reform (to be carried out before September 2014), the organization of early presidential elections no later than December 2014, the formation of a national unity government, the end of opposition occupation of administrative and public buildings, the surrender of illegal weapons, and the renunciation of the use of force on both sides.
On the same day, when the parliamentary opposition leaders publically announced on Maidan the conditions of signing the Agreement, a representative of the so-called «Maidan Self-Defense» V. Parasyuk said that he and the rest of the Self- Defense members were not satisfied with a document that agreed on gradual political reforms. He demanded the immediate resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych; otherwise Self-Defense was going to go to storm the Presidential Administration and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. This proclamation was met with applause. Pravyi Sektor leader D. Yarosh stated that the Agreement showed no clear commitment for the President resignation, the parliament’s dissolution, the punishment of heads of security agencies and other parties who had carried out
«criminal orders». He called the agreement «another attempt to pull the wool over the people’s eyes» and refused to implement it.
February 21–23, 2014. Euromaidan supporters in 18 Ukrainian cities (including Dnepropetrovsk, Poltava, Chernigov, Kherson, Sumy and Zhytomyr) demolished monuments to Lenin.

Darchina, Mayor of Tismenitsya (Ivano-Frankivsk region) and searched it. They were looking for some documents and the mayor himself, who managed to escape. The next day B. Darchin sent in his resignation.

February 22, 2014. A monument to a Soviet soldier was removed in a city of Stri in the Lviv oblast.
February 22, 2014. Euromaidan activists succeed in capturing the government district, which was abandoned by police officers, and they issued a number of new demands, in particular, the immediate resignation of President Yanukovych.
February 22, 2014. The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine V. Rybak (Party of Regions) tendered his resignation due to illness and the need for treatment (according to unofficial data, the reason for his departure became fear for his safety). O. Turchynov (AUU Batkivshchyna) was elected the the new Speaker of the Ukrainian parliament.
The first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, member of the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) I. Kaletnik, also penned his resignation. It is significant to note that the entire subsequent period was marked by massive intimidation of Verkhovna Rada deputies from the ruling Party of Regions and the Communist Party members by the supporters of Euromaidan.
February 22, 2014. A crowd of Euromaidan supporters caught Deputy from the Party of Regions N. Shufrich leaving the Verkhovna Rada building of Ukraine. Only the intervention of the Udar party leader V. Klichko, who appealed not to lynch Shufrich, saved him.
February 22, 2014. Euromaidan supporters detained, illegally sentenced and tortured the first secretary of the city committee of the Communist Party of Lviv
R. Vasilko. According to eyewitnesses, he had needles pushed under fingernails, his right lung pierced, three ribs, nose, and facial bones broken. The rioters also threatened to destroy his family.

Almost all the regional committees of the Communist Party were seriously damaged, but especially the ones in Zhytomyr, Chernihiv, Sumy, Vinnytsia, Volyn, Rivne oblast, and all district committees. The regional and city offices in Volyn and Lutsk and many other party premises were taken over by illegal armed groups.
The Communist Party, remaining a legal parliamentary party, was actually forced to shut down. Given the threat of deadly violence a large majority of the Communist Party faction in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine moved to the Crimea or Russia.

The remaining few Communist Party MPs in Parliament protested against the lawlessness in the country and did not participate in voting.
February 22, 2014. On a stage installed in Lviv’s central square, near the monument to Taras Shevchenko, local nationalists forced Ukrainian Interior Ministry
«Berkut» Special Forces of Lviv to «get on [their] knees and beg for forgiveness for participating in actions against Euromaidan in Kiev.
Similar incidences occurred in Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk and Lutsk.
February 23, 2014. The decision was made in the Verkhovna Rada to appoint Speaker O. Turchynov as interim President of Ukraine for the period up to May 25, 2014. After that, the legitimate President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, who was forced to leave the country because of threats to his life and the lives of his family, said during a press conference in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, on 28 February 2014, that he was still the legitimate head of the Ukrainian state, elected by the free will of its citizens, noting also that none of the conditions stipulated by the Constitution of Ukraine on the early termination of Presidential powers (including resignation, illness, death, or impeachment) were followed properly.
February 23, 2014. People’s deputy O. Lyashko (leader of «the Radical Party of Oleg Lyashko») introduced a draft decree in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, banning the Communist Party of Ukraine and the Party of Regions. Commenting on this, Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko said that such a move would be a violation of the law, as the law clearly states that the Party can only be prohibited by court decision.
February 23, 2014. Members of «Ptavy Sektor» imposed tributes on shops in Kiev, stating that the money collected was «protection fees».
February 23, 2014. In Uzhgorod, Transcarpathian region, local activists of Pravyi Sektor tied the regional administration head of customs S. Harchenko to a pole in front of administration building. The activists threatened him with violence, and he was forced to resign.
February 23, 2014. Volyn region district attorney staff turned to the acting Prosecutor General of Ukraine with a request for protection, given that Pravyi Sekyor militants forced them to resign from their posts, and in the case of disagreement, they were threatened with firearms.
February 24, 2014. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the Resolution «On Reaction to the Facts of Breach of Oath of a Judge by Judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine.» The Resolution was provided for the early termination of office
and dismissal, due to «breach of oath», of five Constitutional Court of Ukraine judges, including the Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine. In addition, the Acting Prosecutor General of Ukraine was instructed to open criminal proceedings against all the judges who, in the opinion of People’s Deputies of Ukraine, were guilty of passing the Constitutional Court of Ukraine order on September 30, 2010, No. 20-wd/2010 (Case No. 1-45/2010 on compliance procedures making amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine).
Commenting on the decision of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation emphasized in its statement that «the very question of charging the country’s Supreme Court judges with exercising their judicial power (which is well within the limits of their powers and on the basis of their own internal beliefs) to make decisions that are not patently unjust, allows to doubt the fact of compliance of the basic guarantees of a judge in the country.»
February 24 and 27, 2014. On two occasions, deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine held a political amnesty, freeing 28 people who were jailed on the suspicion of committing a crime or who had already been found guilty of committing one. It is indicative that not all the amnestied individuals, who were presented to the public as «political prisoners», were involved in any political action.
For example, Sergey and Dmitry Pavlychenko were criminated for murdering a judge and subsequently convicted. Another amnestied «political prisoner» was Igor Gannenko, the leader of a neo-Nazi gang, which committed crimes motivated by ethnic, racial, and religious hatred, including anti-Semitism. I. Gannenko and his group of four were convicted in January 2013 for «hooliganism» (in March 2013, the Court of Appeal of the Sumy region confirmed this sentence).
Some amnestied radical nationalists, taking on the romantic aura of «martyrdom», immediately rushed to take an active part in the political life of the country. Vindicated by their imprisonment, they manipulated young adults and teenagers, casting themselves and those of their kind as heroes. This primarily regards the group of leaders of the «Patriot of Ukraine» movement. Between 2006 and 2011 this group, according to human rights NGOs, was the most serious neo-Nazi organization in Ukraine. The movement’s leader, Andrey Biletsky, along with two activists, was accused of attempted murder (the so-called «Defenders of Rymarskaya» case). The ideologist of the organization, Oleg Odnorozhenko, was accused of organizing several beatings of political opponents by the «Patriot of Ukraine» militants, and participating in these beatings.

The most famous of the amnestied «Patriot of Ukraine» activists were the so-called
«Vasilkovsky terrorists», including Igor Moseichuk, Sergei Bevz, and Vladimir Shpara. They were radical nationalists from Vasylkov, the Kiev region and, by a January 2014 ruling of the Kiev region Svyatoshinsky District Court, were convicted of preparing a terrorist act. Just a few days after their release, the amnestied
«Patriot of Ukraine» movement leaders became involved in the political life of Ukraine under the Pravyi Sektor banner.

The European Union actually gave up its obligations as a guarantor of the execution of the agreement between the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and the Ukrainian opposition leaders, signed on February 21, 2014, under the mediation of foreign ministers of Germany, France and Poland. Thus, the EU supported and accepted the illegitimate rise of the opposition to power in Kiev, and directly contributed to the attack against the constitutional order in Ukraine.
February 22, 2014. Shortly after the coup in Kiev, the U.S. announced the removal of the legitimately elected President of Ukraine as a «fait accompli» and recognized the «legitimacy» of the self-proclaimed authorities, headed by Oleksandr Turchinov and Arseniy Yatsenyuk. On March 4, 2014, the Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kiev to pay his respects and show his support.
March 21, 2014. The political agreement on the EU-Ukraine Association was signed as part of the European Council meeting. On behalf of Ukraine, the document was signed by Arseniy Yatsenyuk, appointed as the Prime Minister by the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada. Thus, the EU recognized de jure the current illegitimate government of Ukraine and officially confirmed their willingness to work with it, bypassing the legally elected Viktor Yanukovych, who under the Constitution of Ukraine is still the official head of the state.

March 30, 2014. Residents of Kiev reported that the office building in the city center, which houses one of the headquarters of the «Pravyi Sektor», was regularly approached by cars with diplomatic plates and people unloaded massive bags and shrouded objects.

Convention for the Protection
of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (Rome, November 4, 1950)
Article 2. Everyone’s right to life shall be protected by law. No one shall be deprived of his life intentionally save in the execution of a sentence of a court following his conviction of a crime for which this penalty is provided by law.
Deprivation of life shall not be regarded as inflicted in contravention of this article when it results from the use of force, which is no more than absolutely necessary.
Article 3. No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
The evidence, obtained within the framework of the project on «Public investigations of the violations of human rights in Ukraine», implemented by the NGO «Fund to research problems of democracy»1, makes it possible to clearly identify, among the participants of the Euromaidan, the presence of large and permanent groups of militants, numbering up to several thousand people, who organized the attacks, shootings, beatings and killings of law enforcement officers, dissidents (protesters whose political positions did not coincide with that of the Maidan), seizures of public buildings, etc.
This group was characterized by a high level of provisions with firearms and cold arms, various special gear (grenades, gas, etc.) and radio communication equipment, personal protective equipment (military and official body armor and helmets, shields, knee and elbow pads, masks, respirators, gas masks, etc.), mastery of specific tactical methods of group actions, shift work in the organization of fresh reserves, organization of small-scale production of improvised explosive devices and training of other activists, etc.
Witnesses also reported the high skills of the protesters, who knew how to use irritant poisonous substances, including gases of unknown origin2, as well as smoke from burning tires, and smoke bombs.3 The respirators and equipment of law enforcement officers did not prove to be of much help against these.
According to witnesses, this group was the only one constantly present and most actively operating at the Euromaidan. Witnesses also noted the high level of psychosocial and organizational support this group received from the other participants of Euromaidan: justification of their violent and illegal acts, involvement in the manufacturing of «Molotov cocktails» and improvised explosive devices, dismantling of bridges and pavements to obtain stones, delivery of stones to be used against the police, participation in provocative actions, setting fire to the tires,

1 Since November 21, 2013, the project is conducting surveys of witnesses and monitoring human rights violations in Ukraine. As of March 20, more than 120 witnesses have been interviewed, includ- ing 50 members and supporters of the «Euromaidan», 30 police of fi cers and other law-enforcement agencies of Ukraine, as well as politicians and people’s deputies, journalists, experts and NGO rep- resentatives. The survey of the Euromaidan supporters was conducted primarily at the Maidan and in the seized buildings, in the period from November 21, 2013 to February 22, 2014.
2 A number of law enforcement of fi cers were poisoned by gases of unknown origin and required hospi- tal treatment.
3 Participants of Euromaidan could very effectively determine the wind direction, and thus they placed sources of gas and smoke in the most advantageous positions, in order to cause the maxi- mum damage.

hiding the militants in the total mass of protesters to help them escape from law enforcement agencies, participation in the construction of barricades, etc.
All interviewed witnesses point out the good equipment and training of the militants. It is noted that at the beginning of these events, homemade protective equipment was used — sports and construction equipment, bicycle helmets, arm and shin guards. Witnesses noted the characteristics of the militants’ homemade weapons — sticks, cudgels, axes that were upgraded to increase their striking effect by means of welding iron spikes onto them, using pieces of circular saws, domestic axes with larger helves, etc. Widely used were traumatic weapons, air rifles with optical sights, converted pistols, etc. «Molotov cocktails» were produced at a sufficiently high level. Special chemical components were added, which by their properties were almost like napalm.
After the start of the active phase of operations, the militants obtained regular army or special equipment and personal protective equipment (flak jackets, helmets, hard hats).
Members of the Berkut Special Police Force emphasized the militants’ high quality of equipment: «When we caught one of them, we found out that he was equipped much better than we were — a 16-kg army shield, arm protectors, iron plates from the clavicle to the wrist. His legs were covered, and he was wearing an American thick helmet. We had no such equipment. That type of helmet can protect one from a bullet.»
A conscript of the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, having received a gunshot wound to his legs, said: «Of course, they were prepared. They had better equipment than we do. They wore flak jackets. Their helmets were like those of the Special Forces. These are very expensive.»
Another Berkut officer testified: «The desyatniks and sotniks (leaders of groups of militants consisting of 10 and 100 people respectively) are well trained and well- armed. Each of them had a headset, and they directed their troops against us. When they shot at us, our shields were penetrated as if they were shooting with lead bullets on bovine game. A hole, size of a five-kopeck coin was torn from my comrade’s shield. At the forefront, there were the militants, wearing NATO military uniforms, kneepads, elbow pads, and helmets. Their units worked on the front lines (those who threw the «Molotov cocktails»). It turned out that about one hundred militants worked actively for a couple of hours, and then another unit came. The first unit fell back to rest. They came at us several times in waves, with good equipment and a certain psychological attitude, very aggressive.»
Timur, an officer in the Berkut Special Police Force, who received arm injuries, said: «I heard that the NATO ammunition was used there. One of our guys has left
recently; he has a 5.56 mm cartridge in his lung — a NATO cartridge. They were shooting in a very interesting fashion. You must understand — in order that the reporters never saw how they were shooting; they were running and shooting from the hip. That means, they had covered their weapons with jackets when they were shooting from the hip. So there were many casualties, and this all happened during the day, at noon. There were many leg injuries.»
Ivan, an officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, draws attention to the use of the unmanned aerial vehicles that were used to assist the rebels, «Twice I saw these drones. The Maidan was under full surveillance. I do not know how ordinary citizens got professional UAVs.»
Alexander, an officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, having received injuries, underlines the quality of the equipment, in particular of the Pravyi Sektor members:
«Their equipment was professional. Everything was brought in: flak jackets, armored shields, protective equipment for the arms and legs. They had everything. There were such groups, as I understand, the Pravyi Sektor, which were equipped and armed. They had army equipment, flak jackets, some were wearing Special Forces clothing, like the Americans have. We have no such flak jackets. These are of the fourth and fifth classes of protection.»
Viktor, an officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, says: «It was perfectly staged. There was neither chaos nor voluntary movements. This was seen on Bankovskaya Street on December 1, 2013. The activists, who instigated the work from the first row, threw stones and chains on the soldiers. There were also many peaceful protesters who did not participate in the provocations. Almost all the activists — and this was perfectly developed — right at the moment when the Berkut came forward, immediately dissolved into the crowd.»
Andrey, an officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, having received gunshot wound, emphasizes the militants’ coordination of actions: «As I understand it, there were commanders. We observed some people who were walking and showing them some signals; they were coordinating things. There were many such cases. Visible were people wearing red bright clothing, ski-type costumes. I noticed that they stood at every 200–300 meters. It was evident that they were trying to form a «monolith»1, but they could not arrange the groups in 2 or 3 rows. We, on the other hand, can stand on a passive pushback. Generally, their actions were similar to the French school of dispersing rallies. These were similar tactics.»

1 A soldiers’ formation (internal forces and special police units of Ukraine).

Timur, an officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, having suffered an injury to his hand1, notes the coherence of the militants in their actions: «They operated smoothly. They had some kind of officers, and group leaders. This was quite noticeable. Ordinary people — they run helter-skelter. They do not think. And here, there were some groups who formed «monoliths» with shields and moved within the group, as a team. In case they saw any real danger, they retreated. These were prepared people — not the ones trained in just a month or two. As I learned, they had been preparing for almost two years before this event, in different places. It is very obvious that those people were certainly trained beforehand. There is nothing to add here.»
Ivan, an officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, says: «They were prepared right from the start, but they did not have skills of actual battle (in confrontations with us). However, as the events progressed, more trained people joined. The new proficiency became obvious. Originally, the militants numbered about one hundred, and then they broke up into smaller groups (some 15 people in each group) and began to provoke us. They first provoked us verbally, and then they mocked our uniforms. But later, they became smarter. They let the women and youth go first, using them as human shields.»
«There were 10–15 people of this kind, some pregnant women walked there too. The provocation consisted in militants breaking our helmet spheres with steel wire of 10–12 millimeters thick, cut into 15–20 centimeter pieces. And, then, they immediately threw some mixture and it was impossible to see anything for 10–15 minutes. After that, the militants departed immediately and women with children approached instead and began to tell tales: «We are peaceful, how can you act in this way, we are simply standing here.»
Another officer of the Berkut Special Police Force, having received a head injury, points out these tactics: «I saw at first approaching people, who were talking and singing. Then, they were suddenly replaced by masked men who started using, for example, gas from special large cylinders, which we did not have at that time in our division. Then some groups appeared, who were trying to break our line, they hit police officers with sticks. As soon as we began to move forward, immediately they began to sing the Ukrainian anthem and other various songs.»

Lymarenko had his face disfigured and V. Veremiy was wounded to the chest, an injury from which he soon died.
The Union of Journalists announced that such media worker rights violations during the «revolutionary events» were unprecedented. One journalist (V. Veremiy) was killed and 167 were injured, dozens suffered from all sorts of attacks. The presence of a press certificate or the inscription «press» on the clothing did not save reporters from attacks and destruction of their professional equipment.
February 20, 2014. P. Prudyakov PhD, Professor of Slavic Studies Department at the Taras Shevchenko National University, gave an interview to one of the Russian TV channels. Later, he was invited to write a letter of resignation from the university at University Rector’s initiative. P. Prudyakov refused. He was then forced to do it,
presented with threats of dismissal under the «gross violation of labor discipline» article. Philology students were urged to write accusatory letters (students flatly refused to do so). P. Prudyakov was forced to resign from the university at an extraordinary meeting of the department, although this scientist is one of the world’s leading experts in his field.
February 27, 2014. Director of the Ukrainian News Agency GolosUA, Oksana Vaschenko asked the existing power structures of Ukraine to prevent the possible seizure of the agency office and to protect journalists from attacks by extremist organizations. However, in early March 2014, the Ukrainian News Agency GolosUA office was captured by Pravyi Sektor militants. Most of the staff was forced to go on leave with no pay, the remaining staff members moved to another place, keeping the location of these premises secret.

February 28, 2014. The Ukrainian televison anchorperson V. Syumar was appointed deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. She immediately initiated her activities in her new position by putting crass pressure on Ukraine’s state television channels. In essence, she imposed censorship. In particular, the managment of UTR (the second state channel, which handles foreign broadcasting) was informed of the necessity of switching to a
«counterpropaganda» mode in the form of an ultimatum. V. Sumar emphasized that the «television station does not carry out sufficient counterpropaganda against Russia.» As a result, UTR was reoriented towards English language broadcasts involving anti-Russian speakers. Similar processes are characteristic to the editorship of Ukraine’s national radio.
March 5, 2014. In the center of Kiev on Maidan, radicals seized reporter S. Rulev of the Navigator Information Agency, who had come to the square to shoot footage of an anti-war demonstration, and dragged him into a tent set up opposite the Trade Unions House.

March 6, 2014. In Donetsk, civic activist Pavel Gubarev, who was elected people’s governor of the Donetsk region at a popular assembly on 1 March 2014 and stood for not recognizing the new authorities in Kiev that had come to power as a result of the coup d’état and for the holding of a referendum on the future of Donbas, was arrested by the Security Service of Ukraine and taken to Kiev.

Lyashko, people’s deputy in the Verkhovna Rada and leader of the Ukrainian Radical Party, along with a group of accomplices, beat up Arsen Klinchaev, member of the Lugansk regional council and leader of the social organization «Young Guard.» He had been campaigning for the federalization of Ukraine and recognition of Russian as an official state language. The beating occurred in the office of V. Guslavsky, the chief of the General Directorate of the Internal Affairs of Ukraine in the Lugansk Region, and with his full connivance.

March 11, 2014. According to reports sent from Russian-speaking inhabitants of Ukraine, Russian television channels were disabled «in all the cities of the country.» Similar complaints were received from the city of Gorlovka in the Donetsk region, where the local provider Interset had cut off the NTV and RTR channels, and from Kharkov, where the Channel One, Russia, and NTV channels were disabled. However, as noted by researchers and sociologists, up to 90 percent of airtime consists of broadcasts viewed in Russian.
March 13, 2014. A Kiev court placed the Mayor of Kharkov, G. Kernes, under house arrest. He had repeatedly expressed his disagreement with the political events taking place in Ukraine, including those connected to the forceful seizure of power by Euromaidan supporters.
March 13, 2014. The popular governor of the Lugansk region, Alexander Kharitonov, was arrested by the Ukrainian Security Service and taken to Kiev. A. Kharitonov’s wife posted an open letter regarding the violation of her and husband’s rights on the website of the head of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine. It states:

«I am certain that the complaints made against my husband by the Security Service of Ukraine and the accusations levied against him of committing serious crimes (undermining the national security of Ukraine and forceful seizure of state power) do not correspond with reality and have been brought forward with the purpose of punishing my husband for his political convictions. The threats made at Maidan and propagated on the Ukrainian mass media — «Muscovites to the knife!» and «The Glory is ours — death to the enemy!» — were taken by my husband and others as a threat to the life and safety of our family. That is why, and the only reason why, he, like other inhabitants of Lugansk, came out on a peaceful protest. I wanted to meet my husband, to see him, to give him the moral support of our children and myself. However, I have been denied access to him.»
March 14, 2014. Ukraine’s largest social-political weekly, «2000,» ceased to exist in paper format as a result of the harsh political pressure and censorship policies of the «new authorities.» The editorship does not rule out the total cessation of its work in relation to threat of seizure of its Kiev office. For many years, the paper has published materials critical of the politicians who currently find themselves in power today. Immediately after the change of government took place in the country, the Ukraine Press, the largest printing office in Kiev, announced that it would review its contract with the editorship of «2000» unilaterally. The rates were artificially inflated to several times higher than market rates and those that had been negotiated in the previous contract.
March 15, 2014. The fighters from the so-called Maidan Self-Defense Force blockaded the building of the Ukrainian television channel «Inter» and demanded its management be replaced because of the channel’s information policy. Threats continued to be made against the television channel’s management, its journalists, and its anchorpersons (via the mass media, calls and social websites) even after changes were made to its editorial policy. Pressure on Inter’s leadership increased especially after the arrest of its primary shareholder, D. Firtash.
March 17, 2014. A. Davidchenko, one of the leaders of the protest movement in Odessa and the leader of People’s Alternative, was detained by unknown persons. Unidentified people in black uniforms lacking any insignia grabbed the social activist, threw him into an automobile with transit numbers and drove off with him towards an unknown location. A. Davidchenko’s comrades think that SBU employees carried out the operation and that the leader of People’s Alternative was taken to Kiev.
March 18, 2014. A group of Verkhovna Rada deputies from the Svoboda Party led by I. Miroshnychenko and the famous actor B. Beniuk (people’s artist of Ukraine)
came to the office of the First National Channel of Ukraine (NTU) and forced its acting president, O. Panteleymonov, to resign.
O. Panteleymonov, later commenting on the incident on air, stated that the deputies had a «long and officious conversation» with him. Footage posted on the Internet bear witness to the fact that the MPs beat O. Panteleymonov on the face and head. They blamed him because the television channel that he heads aired the appeal of the President of Russia to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Crimea — and that was «not patriotic.» They called O. Panteleymonov a «moskal’»1 and constantly reminded him that NTU was «disseminating lies» about the events on Maidan.
March 18, 2014. The employees of the regional television channel in Chernigov were subjected to pressure. Several dozens of local Pravyi Sektor activists armed with grenades and bladed weapons demanded that the general director write a resignation letter after they stormed into the television company building and blockaded much of the premises. The reason was singular — he was considered
«an accomplice of the old regime.»
March 19, 2014. Alexey Khudyakov, a journalist from the online publication Segodnya.ru, was abducted. He had been in Donetsk since February 28th carrying out the work assigned to him by the editors. While on his trip, he prepared and published five articles and news items for them that were critical of the radical pro- Nazi groups and «the new government» in Kiev.
A tinted van pulled up next to A. Khudyakov and without any explanation people in masks jumped out and then shoved him into the automobile. He was then handcuffed and a black sack was placed on his head. Next, he was searched and taken to the woods. One of the kidnappers was an SBU employee, but he refused to produce any identification. After this they began trying to intimidate
A. Khudyakov, including with direct threats to his life and the life of his relatives (he was forced to list their names and surnames and indicate their phone numbers). The kidnappers impressed upon him that he «was misjudging the situation.» Threatening him, they forced him to read an unknown text in Ukrainian into a video camera, as well as sign documents stating he was prepared to work for the Security Service of Ukraine. The malefactors threatened violence to him and his relatives should the fact of his abduction be made known. Thereafter, his Ukrainian SIM cards and telephone memory cards were confiscated, and the

1 Moskal’ — derived from Moscow, it is a humiliating and insulting labeling of Muscovites in particular and all Russians in general, widely used in Ukraine.

photo and video materials and telephone book in his phone were destroyed. The journalist was driven to a border post on the border with Russia and handed over to the border guards to be deported.
March 19, 2014. In Vinnitsa a group of ultra-rightists from the so-called People’s Tribunal crassly demanded that T. Antonets, the chief physician of the regional children’s clinical hospital, voluntarily resign from her post since she had not publically repudiated the Party of Regions, nor had she condemned «the crimes of the former government.» The radicals told her that if she did not obey them, they would deal with her according to the «laws of a severe revolutionary period.»
March 19, 2014. S. Taruta, who had been appointed governor of the Donetsk region by the de facto government in Kiev, announced that additional troops should be sent to Donetsk from the Dnepropetrovsk and Kirovograd regions in order to

March 20, 2014. The Security Service of Ukraine in the Lugansk Region implemented a series of measures directed towards the liquidation of the social organization Lugansk Guard, which advocates the federalization of Ukraine and recognition of Russian as a state language. Three activists were arrested and searches of the offices of the organization and of the apartments of Lugansk Guard members were conducted. One of the leaders of the youth wing, A. Pyaterikova, posted a public appeal on social networks in which she claimed that the SBU, along with the Verkhovna Rada deputy and leader of the ultra-right Radical Party,
O. Lyashko, had organized a hunt for members of the Lugansk Guard and was persecuting activists and members of their families.
March 20, 2014. Euromaidan activists besieged the Office of the Public Prosecutor in Odessa and proceeded to carry on a conversation in raised voices with the regional prosecutor. At times, threats were directed at him. The main demand of the activists was to «deal toughly» and «take measures» in relation to the camp and
leaders of the social movement Kulikovo Pole (Kulikovo field), which advocates the recognition of Russian as a state language, as well as constitutional reforms and the federalization of Ukraine.
March 22, 2014. The Security Service of Ukraine detained one of the leaders of the protest movement, the leader of the so-called People’s Militia of Donbas,

V.V. Putin, to recognize and create a republic called «Transcarpathian Ruthenia» served as the basis for this.
March 26, 2014. The Kiev district court made the decision to suspend broadcasting of five Russian television channels in Ukraine: Vesti, Russia 24, Channel One, RTR Planet, and NTV World. This was done at the request of the National Defense and Security Council of Ukraine (with the goal of «ensuring the information security of the country»).
March 26, 2014. In Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, and Donetsk, supporters of the Pravyi Sektor beat up citizens who were wearing the Georgievskaya Lenta (St. George’s Ribbon) on their chests (a symbolic token commemorating the Victory Day and the Great Patriotic War).

Tkalenko, the chief physician at the Ulyanovsk Central Regional Hospital, was attacked by representatives of the local People’s Rada (People’s Council) and members of the Svoboda (Freedom) Party. They attempted to beat him up right in his own office. The doctor’s only «sin» was his political convictions (he stood in the ranks of the Party of Regions and had been appointed by the previous administration).
March 30, 2014. Euromaidan fighters attacked the Lugansk Guard activists’ tent in Lugansk city. The opponents of the «new Kiev government» were beaten with bats and their tents were slashed and torn down. Some of the victims from among the tent camp activists were hospitalized with sDiscrimination

Religious intolerance, including threats to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church
of the Moscow Patriarchate

On the night of February 22–23, 2014. Representatives of the Kiev Patriarchate, which is unrecognized in the Orthodox world, threatened the forcible seizure of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra. On the evening of the 22nd, on Maidan, its representatives propagated false information about the «threat» of the removal of the church valuables of Kiev Pechersk Lavra from Ukraine. Starting from the stage at Maidan and moving on to social networking sites, provocative appeals began to be circulated: Guys, everybody to Lavra now! The monks are taking the icons out of Lavra to Russia! Never let them do that; never allow such a thing! We must intervene! As a result, a group of representatives from the so-called Maidan Self- Defense Force went to Lavra.
Approximately 300 armed people went up to the Lavra walls and seized control of all the ancient monastery’s entrances and exits, deciding at their own discretion who should be permitted in or out.
The militants armed with batons detained a vehicle belonging to the Russian Embassy in Ukraine as it was leaving the Kiev Pechersk Lavra and demanded they be allowed to «inspect» it. Two deputies from the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine participated in the search. When the Russian diplomat pointed out to them that their actions were in flagrant violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of April 17th 1961, a PM from the Udar Party literally stated the following: «We have already broken so much over the past three months that this is just nonsense.»
The inhabitants of Lavra were threatened and called upon to voluntarily abandon the monastery. The radicals informed them that if they refuse, then «as soon as the corresponding order arrives from above,» i.e. from ‘Patriarch’ Filaret of the unrecognized Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Kievan Patriarchate (UOC KP), they will be able to use force.»
The representatives of the Kiev Patriarchate who had arrived with them declared that the Verkhovna Rada would pass a decision on the following day concerning
«the transfer of the Lavra to the Kiev Patriarchate» and thus it was «imperative that the monastery be released in order to avoid bloodshed.»
In the end the situation was stabilized, but the anxious mood did not abate for a long time.
February 24, 2014. Representatives of the Maidan Self-Defense Force took Pochaev Lavra under their control in order to, according to the official announcement of the Ternopil authorities, «prevent the removal of relics and valuables.» In fact, this was an illegal blockade of the entrances to a monastic cloister.
February 24, 2014. In Novoarkhangelsky in the Kirovograd district, St. Vladimir Church, which was formerly being used by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the

Religious intolerance, including threats to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church
of the Moscow Patriarchate 61

Moscow Patriarchate (UPC), was transferred into the ownership of representatives of the Kiev Patriarchate.
The transfer was carried out on the basis of a court decision made under pressure of demonstrations primarily from the nationalist party Svoboda.
In 2006, the church abbot had given the building to representatives of the Kiev Patriarchate secretly, without the knowledge of church management of his own church community. After lengthy proceedings in April of 2013, the court decided in favor of the UPC of the Moscow Patriarchate. However the schismatics appealed the legal decision just before «Svoboda» members provoked clashes with UPC priests and parishioners. As a result, the church was shut down for renovation by the authorities, but after the Euromaidan victory in February 2014, the schismatics won their appeal.
February 25, 2014. Information surfaced about preparations being made for an attempt to capture the Pochaev Lavra spiritual center. In order to prevent this provocative act, numerous Orthodox believers started gathering at Lavra, blocked the main entrance to the monastery, and created a solid living wall in front of the Holy Gates of the cloister. These conditions made it impossible for the group of nationalist radicals and schismatics arriving at Lavra in six buses to carry out their original plan.
February 25, 2014. A group of aggressively disposed people accompanied by journalists from the 1+1 television channel entered the administrative building of the Sumy Eparchy. The leaders of the group were N. F. Karpenko (Kiev Patriarchate deacon), Professor I. P. Mozgovoy, and a UPC KP «priest» in civilian clothes. N. F. Karpenko categorically demanded that Archbishop Eulogius, archbishop of Sumy and Akhtyrka, conduct joint services with the schismatic Archbishop Methodius in the Holy Transfiguration Cathedral in Sumy. He then blamed the priesthood of the canonical Church of unwillingness to pray for those killed at Maidan.
In response to all of his arguments with respect to the canonical obstacles in questions of concelebration, the Archbishop Eulogius was informed that if he refused, «all Maidan will be here to throw Molotov cocktails at the eparchy.»
A few days prior to this incident, a crowd of Kiev Patriarchate parishioners blocked the Archbishop Eulogius into the cathedral yelling, «get out of Moscow’s ass!» and
«Eulogius to the gallows!»
March 2, 2014. Parishioners found pamphlets of a provocative nature on the

They were titled: Get out, moskal! They contained crude insults directed at the UOC priests in addition to their photographs.
On the night of March 7–8, 2014, an act of vandalism was committed against the Church of St. John the Theologian belonging to the Zhitomir Eparchy in the village of Solnechniy in Zhitomir district. The following was painted on the walls of the church: «Moscow Sell-outs» and «Moskal Butt Lickers.»
March 25, 2014. In Severodonetsk in the Lugansk region, archpriest of the UPC of the Moscow Patriarchate and doctor of theology, Father Oleg Trofimov, was subjected to persecution and threats on the part of the authorities and activists of the local Euromaidan because of the active position he had taken in civil society and his antifascist convictions. He was transferred to serve in a distant rural parish forty kilometers from home. The investigations being imposed on the archpriest in relation to questions surrounding the appropriateness of his official behaviour are based on groundless accusations of the misuse of funds donated by parishioners, etc. Pravyi Sektor has placed Father Oleg on their black list. The mass media, which is controlled by extremists, has been harassing the priest. His home address and telephone number are constantly being published on the Internet accompanied by calls to violence.
In late March a prominent activist from one of the unrecognized Orthodox confessions in Ukraine, the so-called Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church (Cherkassy Eparchy), the abbot Alexander Shirokov, received a threatening letter in the name of the National Socialist Workers Party of Ukraine. In particular, it was stated in it that if A. Shirokov did not cease his «pro-Moscow and anti-constitutional enemy agitation» on internet social networking sites, the same party would change its «heretofore still tolerant and polite» relationship to him. «We will have to start using more radical methods of a physical or annihilating nature against you or your relatives, including those located in Russia,» the letter said.

Conclusion

The facts set forth above clearly demonstrate that under the influence of extremists from ultranationalistic and neo-Nazi forces, and with the active multidimensional support of the USA and the European Union and its members, the protests in Ukraine which bore an initially peaceful character rapidly escalated into a coercive rebellion and, in the end, the forceful seizure of power and an unconstitutional coup d’etat. These dramatic events were accompanied by widespread and gross violations of human rights and freedoms on the part of the self-proclaimed government and its supporters. As a result, manifestations of extremist, ultranationalist, and neo-Nazistic sentiments, religious intolerance, xenophobia, blatant blackmail, threats, pressure placed by the Maidan leaders on their opponents, «purges» and arrests amongst them, repression, physical violence, and sometimes plain criminal lawlessness have become commonplace in Ukraine.
In all of Ukraine’s regions, but especially in the southeastern part of the country, Ukrainian radical nationalists, instructed by the de facto authorities in Kiev and their external patrons, are ramping up the pressure on Russian-speaking citizens who do not want to lose the centuries-old ties that bind them to Russia and Russian culture. Moreover, affairs are being conducted Maidan-style — through the use of threats, intimidation, physical violence, and heinous attempts to obliterate Russian culture and identity among the inhabitants of these regions of Ukraine.
Unfortunately, all of the gross human rights violations and violations of the principle of the rule of law that have been committed and are still being committed remain unpunished. Moreover, the bandits from Euromaidan who, weapons in hand, committed atrocities against the legal authorities and citizens have been amnestied by Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and declared national heroes. We are convinced that if the lawlessness in Ukraine continues, the situation may erupt into a serious threat to regional peace and security and lead to further escalation of international and interethnic contradicions and conflicts in Ukraine and Europe in general.
We hope that this fact will finally be recognized in the relevant international organizations, which in accordance with their mandates must contribute to the conducting of objective and non-politicized investigations into the numerous violations of human rights and the principle of the rule of law in Ukraine. The perpertrators must be duly punished. Otherwise, extremists of all stripes and colors will receive a dangerous signal of encouragement.
