Who Really Won in the #Ukraine Conflict ?

Who Really Won in the #Ukraine Conflict ?


By: @Adam1Baum

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.

Under the agreement, a national unity government will be installed and a presidential poll will be held by the end of the year. The deal, reached after mediation by EU foreign ministers, also sees electoral reform and constitutional changes.

 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".

Parliament also approved an amnesty for protesters accused of involvement in violence and voted for the dismissal of Interior Minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko. MPs voted for a change in the law which could lead to the release of Tymoshenko, an arch-rival of Mr Yanukovych. She was sentenced to seven years in prison in 2011 for abuse of power. Her supporters say this was simply Mr Yanukovych taking out his most prominent opponent. "I think what we're witnessing is the collapse of this absolutely bizarre and terrible dictatorship which was building up in the country," opposition politician Andriy Shevchenko told the BBC from the floor of parliament.
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 Day

Despite 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 witnessed 

Most 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.


Time-Line of Event 2014

 March - Russian forces help separatists seize power in Crimea, which Russia then annexes, prompting the biggest East-West showdown since the Cold War. US and its European allies impose sanctions on Russia.
