    Ukrainian Ex-PM Reveals Who Was Behind Maidan Sniper Deaths

    Three years ago this week, dozens of people, protesters and police alike, were gunned down in Kiev by mysterious snipers, leading to intensified pressure against authorities and culminating in the Maidan coup. Three years on, ex-Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has compiled his take on the snipers' identity. But Kiev is trying to destroy the evidence.

    In a detailed post on his Facebook page on Tuesday, complete with photo and video evidence, Azarov dropped a bombshell, writing that "today we, and investigators in Kiev as well, have reliable information about the fact that the murders on the Maidan were carried out by special groups of snipers from Georgia, the Baltic countries and Poland, under the guidance of instructors from France and Germany."

    These groups, Azarov said, "were provided with cover and diversionary actions by shooters from the 'Maidan Self-Defense' group under the direction of [Andriy] Parubiy and [Serhiy] Pashinsky," the former now serving as speaker of Ukraine's parliament, and the latter an MP and former interim head of the presidential administration.

    Going into more detail, Azarov explained that "the Georgian group, consisting of 10 people, was placed in the Conservatory building [which overlooks Maidan Square]. The identities of three of them have been confirmed by photographs taken by Ukrainian Security Forces staff, and it has been established that they are Georgian nationals. On February 20, [2014] this group divided into two. One of them fired from the Conservatory Building, the other from the Hotel Ukraine Building."

    "However, after three years, even the biased investigators have proven unable to prove the unprovable. 'The blood of the innocent people who died is on the conscience of the criminals who seized power in Ukraine', and this is an indisputable fact," Azarov added.

    I think he is right, it kind of makes sense.

    Sputnik? Really?

    Consider the source before you think he might be right. And second look up the man. He was the PM under Viktor Yanukovich who fled to Moscow in 2014.
    The man's defending his own actions during the Maidan protests in a Russian propaganda tool.

    Not what you would call an impartial witness.

    So what, from your point of view everything that comes from Russia is lies and propaganda - that it is ok, but I do not think like that.

    Yanukovych says he knows the exact identity of the snipers on Maidan Square, who it was who let them through and from which buildings they shot at police officers and at the men belonging to his special force. But he says he has to protect the identities of his informants and he also has to mount a legal defense. He constantly repeats, "I can't tell you everything right now." And this includes the names of the oligarchs or the politicians currently in leadership roles in Kiev with whom he has recently met.

    I think americans was behind this to be honest, they surely did not try to start a war, they just wanted to get rid of Pro-Russia goverment of Ukraine. Poles did dirty job and shoot protesters and police. Pro-Ukraine opposition politicians and oligarchs obviously knew about this and maybe it was their idea, since they wanted to join EU-NATO so much.

    Well they opened Pandora's box, I hope it was worth of it.

    No! Had you read more carefully what I wrote you'd have noticed that I said that I don't trust Sputnik. Not Russia, or the Russians, or anything out of Russia. Finland is a free country, you can think whatever you want, but I'd just like to say that you should consider what media outlets you trust when you're forming your opinions.

    Had you used Эхо Москвы or The Times of Moscow I would've taken it seriously, but Sputnik or RT, absolutely not. They are propaganda tools of the Russian government.

    This exact same story was covered by The Guardian as well, but it amounted to nothing because it was and still is based on rumours.

    There was lately a Moscow story about a German soldier in one of the Baltic countries who was supposed to have raped a woman... etc... and it was totally fake....
