Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Who the snipers were is a fair question, but I don't see much justification for the sensationalist title in this connect-the-dots series of items. Radio Free Europe/Liberty says this, Voice of Russia says that... It's the noise of propaganda, and I don't see much signal.

Here I collected photos of Pravy Sektor protesters with guns. Those guns are hunter rifles and handguns, though, and are used against police.

I don't quite get how the false flag operation makes sense. What was the goal? To get the world outraged? But that wasn't the key to the overturn. To mobilise civilians for the revolution? Again that wasn't key to the overthrow, and the schemers would have had to contemplate an outcome with even more people staying home scared. To get goodhearted Party of the Regions supporters to break with the regime? I don't think either the USA or Svoboda could have foreseen the extent of that.

It just doesn't add up. Let's stop the wild speculation, the propaganda is bad already.
