Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ukraine: Ashton Phonecall On Maidan Snipers.

Someone recorded a phone call between the Estonian foreign minister Paet and the EU high representative Ashton.

    ○ ...
    ○ the same Olga [Dr. Olga Bogomolets] (from a civil society group) told me that people killed by snipers on both sides, among policemen and people on the street, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides, she showed me some photos and said she has a medical doctor and that it is the same handwriting and the same t ype of bullets and it is disturbing that the new coalition now don't want to investigate (8:25)
    There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind snipers it was not Yanukovich but it was somebody from the new coalition. (8:55)
    ○ it discredited itself from the very beginning this new coalition (9:20)

Note: This call does not prove that the snipers came from the new coalition site. But it is a hint that this must be investigated.

Using snipers in such fashion is not uncommon. Snipers shooting at both sides in a civil conflict have been documented during the coup attempt against Chavez, the during the red-shirt vs. yellow-shirt conflicts in Thailand and during protests in Syria.
