The snipers who shot at protesters and police in Kiev were allegedly hired by Maidan leaders, according to a leaked phone conversation between the EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign affairs minister, which has emerged online.
“There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition,” Urmas 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.
Paet also recalled his conversation with a doctor who treated those shot by snipers in Kiev. She said that both protesters and police were shot at by the same people.
“And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM stressed.
Ashton reacted to the information by saying: “Well, yeah…that’s, that’s terrible.”
“So that she then also showed me some photos she said that as a medical doctor she can say that it is the same handwriting, the same type of bullets, and it’s really disturbing that now the new coalition, that they don’t want to investigate what exactly happened,” Paet said.
Olga Bogomolets was the main doctor for the Maidan mobile clinic when protests turned violent in Kiev. She treated the gravely injured and helped organized their transportation to neighboring countries, who had expressed a willingness to treat those with severe wounds. From the outset, Olga blamed the injuries and deaths on snipers. She turned down the position of Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for Humanitarian Affairs offered by the coup-appointed regime.
The Estonian FM has described the whole sniper issue as “disturbing” and added, “it already discredits from the very beginning” the new Ukrainian power.
As long as the major powers insist on clandestine involvement in other nations, it is virtually impossible for citizens like us to sort out who is really behind atrocities, and all-too-easy to simply fit events into our preferred narrative, to justify atrocities by “our guys.”
The gas attack in Syria, the snipers in Ukraine… only God really knows what really happened, and who was behind it, and it is foolishness to push our legislators to further involvement in fights that are not our own. Let those who are the next-door neighbors—and who know the players better—decide if they want to risk soldiers to get involved.
The United States has no place here, though too many “black budgets” insure that we’re involved to the hilt. I’m sure the CIA, NSA and the rest are as effective in their endeavors as the clowns running Obamacare.
George Washington warned us about this day in his Farewell Address. That speech used to be required reading for all American school children, but today… we have completely failed to learn from his wisdom.
