In the beginning of Feb. 2014 the Maidan protest I followed, being an American, could only marvel at. The fact that a demonstration of that magnitude was being held without more govt. resistance was astounding to say the least. If that had been in Washington D.C., our Natl. Guard & Homeland Security would have used way more violence on the resistance.
What happened in the next few days, opened my eyes to something very suspicious going on in Ukraine seemingly with U.S. involvement.
When the news came that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and opposition leaders had
signed a deal to try to end the political crisis in the country. This looked very promising.
Ukraine's parliament had voted to reduce the president's powers.
It also approved laws which would see the release of jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko.
The deal followed hours of talks and months of demonstrations on the streets of Kiev and other cities.
Shortly after the deal was signed, Ukraine's parliament approved the restoration of the 2004 constitution, with all but one of the 387 MPs present voting in favour. Mr Yatsenyuk said the vote was "the first step to restore order in Ukraine".
Dozens of MPs from Mr Yanukovych's own Party of Regions voted for the motions, in what correspondents said would be a humiliation for the president.
Then Came The Bloodiest DayDespite the agreement, isolated outbursts of violence were reported in central Kiev on Friday morning. It remained to be seen whether the deal would be enough to placate the more radical elements of the opposition, including many in the West of Ukraine, who had been demanding for Mr Yanukovych's immediate resignation.
The protests first erupted in late November when President Yanukovych rejected a landmark association and trade deal with the EU in favour of closer ties with Russia.
The deal seemed to cause the bloodiest day since the unrest began to escalate. Allegedly police opened fire early on Thursday after protesters tried to push them away from the makeshift camps they have been occupying in central Kiev. The health ministry said that 77 people had been killed since Tuesday, and another 577 were injured.
Then Came the Most Shocking Revelations I had ever witnessedMost of you who have been keeping up with the situation became aware of details not readily acknowledged by MSM. If these details had been exposed when they should have, countless lives could have been saved.
