2014/07/30 •


According to Hromadske reporter Mustafa Nayem, nine children were blown up over a mine in the village Berestove, Artemivsk Raion, Donesk Oblast. One child was killed, eight are in a very serious condition in the hospital. There are many damaged limbs and facial wounds.

According to Anton Herashchenko, Advisor to the Ministry of the Interior, the teens entered a courtyard of munitions which they found in a fortified area of the militants. They were likely struck by a mine or shell.

Children need urgent amputation of limbs; several lost their vision. A one year-old who happened to be in the yard is in the most critical condition of all the children.

Photos Link Yanukovych’s Troops To Maidan Massacre

About this photo: A still photo from RFE/RL Ukrainian Service video (below) showing Ukrainian security forces with a Kalashnikov assault rifle and sniper rifle, respectively, in a confrontation with protesters in Kyiv on February 20, when dozens of Euromaidan supporters were gunned down.
AU.S journalist says photographs published alongside his investigative report in the online U.S. news magazine “The Daily Beast” website this weekend “appear to reveal the truth” about who shot dead 53 antigovernment protesters at Kyiv’s Independence Square on February 20.

Jamie Dettmer says the photographs suggest the killers were ousted President Viktor Yanukovych’s own security forces — not a foreign-backed opposition faction or nationalist elements among demonstrators, as Yanukovych’s ousted regime and the Kremlin have claimed.

The photographs were taken in a courtyard of the headquarters of Ukraine’s State Security Service, the SBU, shortly before snipers began firing on demonstrators just three blocks away.

Some troops photographed within SBU headquarters are wearing dark uniforms and yellow identification arm bands as they arm themselves with snipers’ rifles and modified Kalashnikovs.

Dettmer, who spoke recently to RFE/RL’s Russian service, said the photos show a pro-Yanukovych Ukrainian Special Forces unit known as the “Alfa Team.”

“We are not saying we can prove that those guys in the photographs pulled the triggers,” Dettmer said. “What is pretty clear is that there is an a priori facie case there — that you have trained antiterrorist people, some who’ve been trained as snipers, locking and loading up before the shooting starts up in the Maidan on February 20.”

Meanwhile, in further evidence of a link, RFE/RL’s Ukrainian Service on February 20 recorded video of masked troops with the same uniforms and yellow armbands aiming the same tripod-mounted sniper’s rifles and firing the same type of modified Kalashnikovs at Maidan protesters:

The Maidan massacre is now part of a propaganda war. The Kremlin claims protest leaders themselves or U.S. spies engineered the killings.

Russia’s state-controlled media and its UN Ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, have claimed the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv was involved.

Oleksandr Yakymenko, who served as SBU chief under Yanukovych, has claimed the snipers were protesters.

Dettmer said those claims aren’t supported.

“They’ve got to provide evidence. At the moment, they’re just shooting their mouths off without providing any documentary evidence, without providing any photographic evidence,” Dettmer said. “We do know that one or two protesters did have rifles that day. But they’re not responsible for gunning down at least 53 protesters. We have a tremendous amount of evidence from British forensic experts who looked at the site and found where the most likely positions of the firing had occurred. And they had occurred in buildings that were under government control. Not the protesters.”

Many of Maidan’s victims were killed by clean shots to the head or neck — forensic evidence Dettmer describes as “telltale wounds inflicted by expert marksmen.”

Earlier this month, a phone call between EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet was released in which the pair discussed rumors that the snipers may have been hired by Euromaidan leaders.

Dettmer tracked down Olha Bohomolets, the Maidan doctor Paet quoted to support claims.

Bogomolets told the reporter that Paet must have misunderstood her amid the chaos because she only saw snipers killing protesters.

Ukraine’s interim government is to release a preliminary report on its investigation this week. But with the SBU involved, Bogomolets fears the findings will be flawed.


“The Heaven’s Hundred” is a first movie from a set of movies named ‘Winter that changed us’. This is a story about those people, who died for freedom and their own state. It is still unknown exact number of people who constitute The Heaven’s hundred. Not only are those killed in the center of Ukrainian capital in February 2014 included into The Heaven’s Hundred. These are also people who disputed against the regime in different parts of the country and disappeared or were misses, or who were tortured at the very begging of Majdan. Eyewitnesses, participants of those events, relatives of the dead will talk about them in this movie. ‘Winter that changed us’ is joint project of ‘1+1’ Production and ‘Tvorche objednannja Vavilon 13’

Massacre in Donetsk (Ukraine) on March 13, 2014

2 people  (some sources tell about 1 person) were killed, 1 person is near to death, about 20 people were wounded in Donetsk on the 13th of March.  People that shouted “Russia, Russia” started agression against mass-meeting “For the individible Ukraine”. Russian followers gathered round peaceful protestors, shouted “Russia” and nothing else, only used foul language, made protestors to  stand to their knees and then started beat people. Police tried to defend citizens that want to live in individible Ukraine but was not successful in doing this.

Despite all these facts and video footage  today Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote on their official website that russian citizens suffered from the ukrainians on the mass-rallye and Russia  has the right to defend their citizens  in Donetsk. What Ukraine and other countries can do to defend themselves against Russian false propaganda and “Russian defence”?

Why people were so cruel to each other? Was this a russian provocation to justify russian military forces in Ukraine or to put forces to ukrainian western regions ? What it was? Ukraine never saw such cruelty during the time of ukrainian independance.

Police from Donetsk tried to defend people but not  very industriously. But it’s very good that police was there, if not we could have much more victims.


The victim of Russian separatism in Donetsk.


The busses from Russia bring separatists to Donetsk and other Western regions of Ukraine and Crimea. This bus will never go to Athens because it’s a false destination.
