The newly installed regime in Kiev does not control the situation neither in the country, nor in the capital. At the beginning of March the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ukraine Security Service declared an amnesty for those who give in illegally held arms. The deadline was March 21, the plans failed.

Coup in Ukraine: A warning to the international working class By Peter Schwarz

25 February 2014 — WSWS

The recent events in Ukraine are a warning to the international working class.

Ukraine: sick fascist filth and gangland violence as political opposition – Rick Rozoff


With the release of a recent conversation between the US ambassador to Ukraine and Victoria Nuland plotting the downfall of the current legitimate elected government in Kiev, it is clear who is behind the attempted coup in Ukraine. US backed “activists” with sniper rifles and hand guns are openly firing on police something that would not be tolerated anywhere in the world but which is being portrayed by western leaders as being legitimate opposition protest behavior. However such cold-blooded murder would lead to brains being swept off the street in their cities. According to Voice of Russia regular Rick Rozoff, who spoke on these issues, what we are color revolution techniques in action and the western media is playing along as a propaganda tool for those behind the scenes.

31 January 2014 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Make no mistake about it, Ukraine’s troubles, engineered from outside of the country by the usual troika of the European Union «securocrats» who are beholden to the interests of the United States and NATO, George Soros-funded and U.S. non-governmental organization-trained street and social media provocateurs, and the Central Intelligence Agency and its diplomat-spies, is a template for what the West has planned for Russia…

Media Disinformation: What’s Really Going On in Ukraine? By Andy Dilks

28 January 2014 — Global Research
