His paper does provide evidence that there were several separate groups of snipers, including anti-government ones.
it is very hard to judge without forensic investigations that these shootings were actually made from the behind of protesters.
As autópsias dos corpos falam em feridas causadas por balas de calibre militar. Em todas as imagens ou vídeos que apareceram não se vê manifestantes com esse tipo de arma.
Há imagens, no entanto, dum grupo de snipers da Berkut e da SBU que aparece no dia do massacre e que desaparece no dia seguinte.
Há também imagens de pessoas vestidas à civil com armas por trás dos Berkut:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titushky
Outra questão é que as mortes não começaram no dia do massacre dos snipers, mas sim mais cedo, algo que muito estranhamente (ou muito convenientemente) omite na sua dissertação de videos e fontes russas.
13 police officers suffered gunshot wounds
At least 11 demonstrators and seven police officers were killed in street battles in the Ukrainian capital, with hundreds more injured and several of the dead suffering gunshot wounds
Também não refere a ordem de Yanukovytch no dia 20 de Fevereiro de abrir fogo sobre os manifestantes e a confissão de membros da SBU de que havia em solo ucraniano na altura dos protestos, agentes russos a pedido do presidente...
At that point I was praying for forty automatic rifles for Maidan. After some time I realized I was asking for too many. So, I asked for twenty. In the morning of February 20, this guy came and brought a Kalashnikov in a tennis racket bag and 75 cartridges. Many would want to hear that we took the rifle from titushkas (mercenary agents who supported the police force — Ed.) during the clashes of February 18. But this was not what happened.I was aiming at those who were in charge. I could not hear them, but I could see the gestures. The distance was very short, so for two commanders I only needed two shots. I learned to shoot while serving in the Soviet Army. I studied at their military intelligence school. We were trained for operations in Afghanistan and other conflict zones.They say I shot them in the back of the head, and it’s true. It happened that they were standing with their backs to me. I had no time to wait until they turned around. Then God turned them this way, and this was the way it had been done
Sergei says he had been a regular protester on the Maidan for more than a month, and that his shots at police on the square and on the roof of an underground shopping mall, caused them to retreat.There had been shooting two days earlier, on 18 February. The 19th, a Wednesday, had been quieter, but in the evening, Sergei says, he was put in contact with a man who offered him two guns: one a 12-gauge shotgun, the other a hunting rifle, a Saiga that fired high-velocity rounds.Meanwhile the MP, Andriy Shevchenko, was getting increasingly panicked phone calls."I kept getting calls from the police officer, who said: 'I have three people wounded, I have five people wounded, I have one person dead.' And at some point he says, 'I am pulling out.' And he says, 'Andriy I do not know what will be next.' But I clearly felt that something really bad was about to happen."Lawyers for the victims and sources in the general prosecutor's office have told the BBC that when it comes to investigating deaths that could not have been caused by the riot police, they have found their efforts blocked by the courts.Sergei, again, tells a different story. He says he was recruited as a potential shooter in late-January, by a man he describes only as a retired military officer. Sergei himself was a former soldier.
In Lviv, a city near the border with Poland, what had been a peaceful blockade of a sprawling compound housing barracks and the Interior Ministry’s western command turned early Wednesday into the seizure of a major military installation.Andriy Porodko, 29, a businessman who had commanded the earlier blockade, said the “soldiers all surrendered” without a fight and had allowed protesters to take control of the compound, including an armory full of weapons
Paet: So that he has some sort of, how to say, trust among all this Maidan people and civil society. 8:20And, in fact, what was quite disturbing, the same Olga told that, well, all the evidence shows that 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. [8:38]Aston: Well, that’s … yeah.Paet: So that, then she also showed me some photos. She said that as [a] medical doctor she can, you know, 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. [8:58] So that there is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind [the] snipers, they were … it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition. [9:10]
