At 8:20 in recorded call. GOSH!
Voice profiling & psych voice analysts say. COMPLICIT
EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton allready knew that the Maidan had assistance to kill people with snipers. Its in her reaction and voice vibration
I think an amateur can hear. GOSH
“There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,” U Paet said during the conversation.
I think we do want to investigate. I mean, I didn’t pick that up, that’s interesting. Gosh,” Ashton answered.
GOSH from"Catharinne Complicit GOSH Ashton"

If the tables were turned and this were happening in the EU or the US, the sniper thing would have been an outrage of apocalyptic proportion, but since this is being pointed out by Russians ... it is just "disturbing&quo t; or simply put ... "sad" after all they are just Russians

Looks to me that some agenCiA was involved.
Protes ters: they are sniping us, kill the police!
Police: they are sniping us, kill the protesters!
And then the "peacekeepers&q uot; arrive.
It's a classic! Ordo ab chao.

Looks like Putin's investment into "independent&qu ot; RT is beginning to pay off. After all, it is the second most watched news show after Fox.

Why is propaganda so much more successful when it stirs up hatred than when it tries to stir up friendly feeling?

And......exac tly how does the assertion (if true) that both police and demonstrators at Maidan were shot with the same weapon show that the weapon was held by a protestor rather than by the police?

  


My question is: If it was police snipers, how did they get inside these buildings when the streets were held by the demonstrators?

...a totally open/free-election process; overseen by the entire Planet Earth, is the best way to deal with this dilemna. A 21st century solution.

  


They already had an election...Yanukovic h was duly elected, and the process was anally overseen by 1000's of Europeans and Americans, most of them stationing themselves in the Russian East and South areas.

As an American following this Ukrainian story I see:
1./ that a large amount of government protestors did overthrow a legally installed government they disagreed with. No free elections. They are now considered to be the new legal Government. Sort of "mobs" rule.
2./ that they are creating a World/Earth crisis in their grab for power and supposed self-expression.
3./ that the Ukrainian human genetic is intelligent and creative...an extremely smart race of people.
4./ that a totally open/free-election process; overseen by the entire Planet Earth, is the best way to deal with this dilemna. A 21st century solution.

"

If you don't KNOW it as true, then you can be considered a tabloid with very unreliable information just trying to get attention and incite fear of certain people. It is shameful exploitation, but I imagine that is how you think you can make money and help the Russian government's goals. Judging by comments here, RT has a captive audience.

  


For your knowledge only: Mr Urmas Paet officially confirmed authenticity of the recordings. It has been broadcasted in German TV as well as authentic recordings. More silly questions?

What is missing in above report is that UK forensic team has been sent to Kiev to figure out who was responsible for shooting. On the BBC News they showed a group of British police experts checking where from bullets come from. By using lasers and holes on billboards and walls they easily showed to the BBC reporter a house where from shots were fired. It was a large house with large windows and balcony on the middle. Later on it has been confirmed that this house was actually in rebels hands during shooting and the right Neo-Nazi organizations were inside. After that no more comments about shooting on EU TV. Strange.

The guys who took the power will not have an investigation, Russia asked for one.

The guy who was in charge of security at the time (when Ukraine still had an elected government) says the shots were fired from a building that was controlled by the Maidan people.

If you want to find out without any doubt: investigate!

I decided to be objective and read news from Russian sites and blogs. I see nothing objective here... rumors and propaganda.

  


Pl ease look at the article I wrote at One Citizen's Opinion. It is a wordpress blog, the article is called Catalyst for a Coup. I can confirm this story with video footage of protester snipers taken by BBC and Euronews. Definitely not Russian propaganda outlets.

This is good reporting, if unpopular with some.

Thats what the whole Plot is about!

And......exactly how does the assertion (if true) that both police and demonstrators at Maidan were shot with the same weapon show that the weapon was held by a protestor rather than by the police?

At the time events were unfolding, and protesters were being killed, those with a basic grasp of history were asking themselves a simple question. "Who stands to gain the most from the public murder of protestors being upon the current government - the current government, or those forces attempting to overthrow the current government?" Those with a background in the history of such operations didn't really need the recent revelations to have very strong suspicions that black ops were the order of the day.
