On Thursday morning, February 20, 2014, Maidan protestors were martyred by professional killers with ruthless efficiency.
It was a little after 9AM when Berkut police snipers loyal to Moscow and Viktor Yanukouvych went about destroying lives of anyone on the street.
No one has been jailed for the killings of more than 100 protesters , dozens of suspects fled to Russia meanwhile, the Kiev government until now has failed to provide a full report on the Maidan tragedy.
Many average, ordinary, Ukrainians remain frustrated over this and it is only the protracted war with Russia in the eastern part of the country that has kept them pre-occupied and off the streets in Kiev to demand justice.
To add insult and more injury to the memory of those innocent Maidan dead we have a Moscow agent of influence, an Ottawa professor, disseminating “fake news” about it.
This fraud, a “sleeper”(deep cover intelligence agent re-animated when needed) carefully established his cover many years ago for just such a role at the University of Ottawa .
He has posted an “investigative” report on multiple media sites and even has a Youtube video lying about this massacre. No doubt Putin’s FSB(KGB) recruited him for this disinformation job something Moscow is an established world expert in.
As proof take for example, the Air Malaysia MH 17 civilian aircraft shoot down killing 298 people, where falsification of truth by Moscow fielded numerous “real” stories and theories about what happened and they still persist in denying their responsibility even to this day.
Putin’s Russia today is better equipped than the USSR ever was because of modern technology available allowing their organized Internet hackers and RT(Russian Television) to beam slick propaganda into North American homes which is very easy and profitable for the Kremlin.
On February 20, 2014 deposed President Viktor Yanukouvych ordered his special “Berkut” police to shoot any and all protestors dead which they did, slaughtering over 100 helpless, unarmed people on Institutska Street.
My video is a mashup of this history and events leading up to this massacre of innocent people by the pro-Russian government near Kiev’s Independence Square known as “Maidan Nezalezhnosti” or simply Maidan.
According to a recent news report found on the Internet , there really is an ongoing investigation to find the perps involved to bring to justice and provide closure to this tragedy.
Yury Lutsenko, Ukraine’s prosecutor general, said whoever hid the murder weapons also arranged exit of the fleeing Berkut policemen out of Kiev.
Discarded weapons including a sniper gun with scope and numerous Kalashnikov assault rifles were found by investigators allowing the names of the suspects be known. Their names remain under wraps for now until the investigation is concluded.
