Ukraine: Calls for Kiev Puppet Government to Resign, Presidential Candidate Beaten, UN to Act?

| WTF News |

There’s a blood moon out there they say.
The truth of the new Ukraine “authorities” has been put on display in the last few weeks with IMF demands and gas price hikes. It was also the biggest open secret that CIA chief John Brennan was spotted in Kiev. Cue the protests in the capital city Kiev.

Zero Hedge
While the CIA-staged government coups in Libya and Egypt at least managed to last nearly a year before the inevitable “Thermidorian reaction” resulted in a blowback response that saw the overthrow of the interim US-handpicked rulers, Ukraine may not last nearly that long. According to reports by both Russian Interfax and Ukraine’s Unian press services, for the first time since the coup that overthrew Ukraine’s president Yanukovich in late February, hours ago a group of protesters assembled in front of the parliament building and on Independence Square in central Kiev, with demands for the resignation of both the interior minister Avakov as well as the acting president Turchinov.

Additionally, reports that the protesters have issued a 24 hour ultimatum to the government to suppress protests in the South East where, as is widely known, “pro-Russian separatists” have effectively taken over the bulk of the cities bordering with Russia.

Simply stated, the people are tired of a figurehead government that already folded when it handed over Crimea to Russia on a silver platter and are demanding at least a token resistance before the rest of the cities in the east flip over to Russia effectively splitting the country in two.

A clip of the protesters taken earlier this evening.

More from Unian:

The Interior Ministry of the capital noted that it is unknown to what protesters are demanding positions remove Turchinova.


According to law enforcement treated protesters politely, but for law enforcement in the event of a breach to the scene, police officers directed.


Also in the Interior Ministry of Ukraine in Kiev urged protesters not to resort to radical actions and do not disturb the public order “as any problematic issues could be resolved through dialogue.”

Slavyansk and Donetsk

Via RT Live Updates

Tuesday, April 15

01:59 GMT:

The aide to the acting mayor of the eastern Ukrainian town of Slavyansk, Vyacheslav Ponomarev, and a representative of the self-defence units denied earlier media reports of fighting on the outskirts of the city, RIA Novosti quoted her as saying. “According to our information everything is calm in the vicinity of Slavyansk,” she said.

01:16 GMT:

A self-defence faction of the Ukrainian eastern city of Slavyansk is reporting fighting on the outskirts of the town, according to Interfax. There are reports of a building burning and shots being fired in the nearby village of Andrrevka.

The more open activity has been building for days now.

Thousands of pro-federalization activists have rallied in cities across Eastern Ukraine, calling for greater sovereignty of their region from Kiev. Activists have formed militias that helped anti-Maidan protesters seize several government buildings.

Activists in Slavyansk, a city in eastern Ukraine located in the north of the Donetsk region with a population of 120,000, seized the police headquarters and the city council building Saturday. Police said Anti-Maidan protesters also seized the local office of Ukraine’s Security Service, the SBU.

They hoisted a Russian flag on top of the police HQ, Slavyansk Mayor Nelly Shtepa said.

“As I negotiated with the activists today, they explained that they represent the Donetsk regional people’s militia. They said that they oppose Kiev authorities and today they are negotiating with them” she said.

Presidential Candidate beaten?

Via RT Live Updates

Tuesday, April 15

01:20 GMT:

Ukrainian presidential candidate Oleg Tsarev was brutally beaten by radicals and is now in critical condition, after being trapped inside the ICTV building after appearing on the Ukrainian talk show ‘Svoboda Slova’, Tsarev’s press office reported. Earlier, there were reports of the entire building being surrounded by unidentified gunmen.

Monday, April 14

23:41 GMT:

Radicals attacked two presidential candidates that were taking part in popular Ukrainian talk show ‘Svoboda Slova’. Unidentified individuals blocked and damaged the vehicle carrying Mikhail Dobkin and injured his aides, the presidential candidate said during a live phone interview later on the show. Other media reports said that the radicals poured green-coloured anti-septic solution and flour on him.

The vehicle carrying a second presidential candidate, Oleg Tsarev, was similarly blocked by radicals inside the ICTV building, where the show was taking place, Tsarev’s press service reported. The whole building is surrounded by unidentified gunmen, according to the statement.

The two candidates were scheduled to join a third presidential candidate, Yulia Tymoshenko, on the talk show.

United Nations to intervene?

The NY Times and others have reported that the Kiev government is seeking international aid to deal with the crisis.

NY Times
Ukraine’s failure to enforce its own ultimatums and its appeal on Monday to the United Nations to send peacekeepers laid bare a grim reality for the shaky government in Kiev, where political leaders and security forces have few reliable ways to confront Russian-backed separatists in the restive east.

A deadline set by Ukraine’s acting president for the start of a “large-scale antiterrorist operation” in the east passed without any clear police or military intervention. Meanwhile, pro-Russian militants seized yet another government building in the Donetsk region, bringing to at least nine the number of eastern towns now swept up in an insurgency.

The country’s acting president, Oleksandr V. Turchynov, asked the United Nations to send peacekeepers. But the move was widely viewed as an act of desperation, given that Russia holds a veto at the United Nations Security Council and is unlikely to assent to a such a request.

The confused and passive response underscored Kiev’s limited options in challenging pro-Russian militants and their backers in Moscow. Too assertive a response could cause heavy civilian casualties and play into Moscow’s narrative that Russians and Russian speakers in Ukraine are threatened and need protection. Too timid a response risks inviting more meddling from Moscow or giving free rein to local armed militants.

Propaganda and Rhetoric at the United Nations

The video version of the BS discussed at the recent UN meeting.

It is ironic that the US ambassador to the UN would be pointing fingers at others who are against peace as she poses for pictures with the war criminal Henry Kissinger.

Not sure what’s less likely: this RedSox fan braving foreign land of Yankee Stadium tonite or going w/Henry Kissinger

      ”’ where political leaders and security forces have few reliable ways to confront Russian-backed separatists in the restive east.”

      You means the Ukrainian police and military forces in the east, whom switches sides in mass and swaves, they don’t like Kiev government either, especially since they were thrown to the dirt and dogs of war… <:D
