Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In my post @BooMan I clearly listed UN evidence of the event. On a number of occasions, The Guardian is a pure propaganda mounthpiece. I have no problem to discern fiction from fact. Follow the link!

Shaun Walker in Sevastopol is to be classified as a Judith Miller of the Iraq campaign. Just warmongering, preference of the British readers? I doubt it. From his twitter account, propagating hearsay and the article on Robert Serry has an error in the headline. OK, I wasn't aware Walker reads this blog. I forgot, Shaun Walker was Moscow correspondent for the Independent, you know. Pls stop the bs.

What has the Guardian got to do with it?

Yes, you do have that kind of pretention. Other people, who consider that there is a fog of propaganda over all these events, are more modest. You could learn from them.

Your final paragraph about Shaun Walker leaves me astounded. What the fuck are you talking about? Where in the exchange above about the UN representative is there any refernce to any of what you write?

Oui:

Pls stop the bs.

Please stop puffing yourself up as one of Internet's great truth-diggers, and give us all a rest here.

Here, it's intelligent debate we look for, not your frantic hair-on-fire rubbish.

Intelligentsia - superior - exceptionalism ...wow!
Doesn't deserve further thought. A pity.

Read my diary entry of 24.02.2014 and see who is closer to the truth. Indeed rubbish.

Russia, Ukraine feud over sniper carnage - The Washington Post

A former top security official with Ukraine's main security agency, the SBU, waded into the confusion, in an interview published Thursday with the respected newspaper Dzerkalo Tizhnya. Hennady Moskal, who was deputy head of the agency, told the newspaper that snipers from the Interior Ministry and SBU were responsible for the shootings, not foreign agents.

"In addition to this, snipers received orders to shoot not only protesters, but also police forces. This was all done in order to escalate the conflict, in order to justify the police operation to clear Maidan," he was quoted as saying.

One of the victims of the snipers was Alexander Tonskikh, 57. He told AP that at around 10 a.m. on Feb. 20, he and dozens of opposition fighters moved south out of the main battleground on Maidan.

Riot police withdrew suddenly, he said, and an instant later snipers began firing from at least two different directions, from what seemed to be the rooftops of government buildings, between 200 and 300 yards away.

The rest is rubbish.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.

Publication in Дзеркало Tizhnya - Hennadii Moskal, MP from the Fatherland party [id. MP with sniper rifle in car], accuses:

16.01.2014 Berkut forces from Crimea were responsible for escalation of violence on 30 November 2013 under orders from police chiefs Oleg Marynenko.
26.02.2014 Moskal reveals a list of SBU subversive tactics prepared for Maidan revolt
27.02.2014 Moskal states Crimea insurgents are well trained "Berkut" who were discharged by new parliament, seeks urgency
07.03.2014 SBU Nalyvaychenko and Interior Minister Avakov say snipers represented a "third force", rejected by Moskal as a white-wash of its agents

WhoIs Hennadii Moskal

Not at all surprised, a USAID funded NGO Chesno with previous funding by Omidyar:

    According to the leaked papers, a network of interlocking NGOs - Chesno (Honestly), Center UA and Stop Censorship, to name a few - were growing in influence in Ukraine by "targeting pro-Yanukovych politicians with a well-coordinated anti-corruption campaign that built its strength in Ukraine's regions, before massing in Kiev last autumn."

    The fundraising papers show that from October 2011 to December 2012 USAID provided Chesno with a hefty sum of over $421,000, while also planting nine of Center UA experts on its staff whose duty it was to manage the NGO's affairs on the regional level, coordinate its efforts, provide photo and video coverage, as well as creative input.

You're welcome. These NGO links were covered in Pando article and my earlier diaries.
