UPD: 14/01/2014 "BERKUT" PІD MEZHIGIR'YAM: THE ORDER OF THE STRIKE NIHTO NOT VIKONAЄ. TOMU SCHO TSE ... TSE VSE EVERYTHING
This guy in camouflage is scary too. It is terrible to get under the tribunal - having been released from the "Golden Eagle", removing the helmet on emotions, not following any order. Moreover, he is convinced that there are already vacancies for the “guilty”. "There was an excess of authority. It was ... But would they look for those who were engaged in this, those who went to it? Why should I respond? This is repression. For you, those who have just been grabbed have otkhodit".
"Feeling so faceless lost under the surface ...", - is on his call. This is Linkin Park, Numb. He is about thirty. Himself from the Kiev region. Hates the president, but does not go to the Maidan. He says he does not have time - he sleeps at best, four hours a day. Such a job. In the "Golden Eagle".
“Come on ?! Infection? - nervously smіtsya. - You can not just take і піти at once. Seriously ... Do you know how scanty is the tribunal? "
I know. A bit cold. We stand by the fire in the forest. Behind our backs, behind the field and in a scattering of modest rural houses, there are automaidan cars, opposition deputies, loud speeches, roads blocked by Kamaz and buses, rain flags and thousands of voices chanting the Third Walk. People. We. Ahead, behind the trees - it seems a stone’s throw away - Mizhhiria and its inhabitants. Siloviki, as always, somewhere in the middle.
New Petrovtsy. In the middle of the village street there are hundreds of Avtomaidan cars, thousands of people. Dozens of buses and police cars. Shields, shields, shields. Behind the boards there are policemen, behind the policemen there are special forces soldiers in masks and attentive guys with video cameras who record every step of the rally participants. This wall does not go round. But you can get around it.
“For three weekdays - to the right, and then there is a vulicea, sweating up to yar, sweating through yar ...”, a local woman points the way to the president.
At every step of this path - its borders. Not tight, not obvious at first glance. But existing. The first one is a bunch of conscripts, very young guys. They, bewildered young men headed by an experienced officer, do not touch anyone. Just being watched - who left the field? Where did you go? They are trying to clumsily “follow”, moving just behind you in open, boundless space. The chief is constantly ringing somewhere. Documents he shows, but not on camera. The question will be followed by a detachment after we meet, waving his hand in the direction opposite to the president’s house: “I’ll see that way, then no”. In the case of a walk in the opposite direction, the escort is promised. However, the guys quickly get tired and lag somewhere in the field.
Where the forest begins, there are masked men. This is the "Golden Eagle". At the post, which is responsible for about half a kilometer perimeter of the edge - “two hundred meters to the left, two hundred meters to the right” - five fighters are on duty. A fire is burning.
Their task is not to let people in the forest. "What is my name? My name is Comrade Senior Sergeant, ”one of them seems to be.
“I do not have full information. I can say “the youngest link” in this whole system, ”says comrade. But the available information is enough for him to assure: in the forest "it is impossible to walk right now." “There is an increase in public safety in the city of Vyshgorod,” he explains the official position. - New Petrovtsy belong to the city of Vyshgorod. This situation, he said, is not the first day. Personally, the senior sergeant found out about this on the eve of the New Year. What will happen to those who still want to go further is difficult for him to say. “We can't hold you up. But we need to limit this zone, the fighter patiently explains. ”
- That is, we can go ...
- And why ? You can't hold us back.
- I cannot detain you and deliver you to the regional department ... But there are different concepts: detain the offender, detain on the spot ...
- In the place of what?
- Developments .
- What event?
No accidents, he says. And he honestly says: “There goes further reinforced outfit. Even if you go there, they will still delay you there, and there they will indeed be delayed and delivered ... We can say, the first post, precautionary. ”
Journalists, the man says the words of leadership, about the passage can "contact the press service of the State Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Kiev region."
- To go through the forest?
- You see, I did not invent ...
On the other post of the “Berkut” on the edge, a fire also burns, the masked guys are also on duty. It's getting dark.
“Turn off the camera - one of them finally wearily says. Let's talk fine. And if I know the answer, I will answer. ”
I turn off the camera. A bit cold. We stand by the fire. "... Feeling so faceless lost under the surface ...", - his phone sings. He does not take the tube.
He did not participate in the dispersal of the Maidan, nor was he at the Svyatoshinsky Court and on Victory Avenue, nor was there "his" guys. But they were on Bankova. The fighter says that it is virtually impossible to distinguish an aggressive person from a peaceful protester already during the bouts. Both helmets and gas masks, and banal emotions interfere with orientation. From time to time, he says outright nonsense - when asked why AP was beaten by journalists, he replied: "The guys saw a provocateur wearing a mask, throwing stones, then took off the mask and took out a camera" ... I remember the words of his colleague, comrade senior sergeant: "we were told a lot of bad things about you too."
“Each of his tower is watching,” finally the Golden Eagle sighs. “If I stand with a shield and in a helmet, it does not mean that I am in a tank.” I was getting on the pavement helmet ... ”“ To be honest, I don’t know how from a purely human point of view one can get out of this situation ... This has been brewed, ”he says. An inconvenient silence. The fire crackles. No one knows.
This guy in camouflage is scary too. It is terrible to get under the tribunal - having been released from the "Golden Eagle", removing the helmet on emotions, without following any order. Moreover, he is convinced that there are already vacancies for the “guilty”. “There was an excess of authority. It was ... But will they be looking for those who did it, those who did? Why should I answer? This is repression. For your part, those who have just been grabbed are already taking the rap. And we still in the army said: "We will understand it as horrible and punish someone." On our part, they will order who it is not a pity. Or who should.
One thing says confidently - will not shoot. “I don’t know how to be frozen at all ... Nobody will execute such an order. Because it is ... It is all. ” He knows how to not take his eyes off. The eyes are blue and very tired. Almost in a whisper says he does not like the president. Suddenly, he suggests that Yanukovych may not even know what is happening here, in Mezhyhiria. Because he has his own world. We have another one. Oddly enough, common.
The fighter of "Golden eagle" assumes that he would go to the Maidan in his spare time. Of course, without form. But there is no time. Four hours of sleep for him is a luxury in today's circumstances.
“I understand your business is good, right,” the guy says goodbye. “I also want everything to be fine ...” His smile is sincere and a little guilty. Because he protects the forest and further. If only because they do not see the point - after all, beyond the horizon, there are still other borders of the same guys.

UPD: 14/01/2014 Fights with the Golden Eagle, People's Assembly and a trip to Mezhigorye-2. Photos of key events Euromaidan January 10-12
We present a selection of the best shots of scandalous events involving supporters of Europrotests over the past few days: fights with law enforcement officers under the building of the Kyiv-Svyatoshinsky District Court, where the case of "Vasilkovsky terrorists" was heard, and subsequent clashes at the Svyatoshinsky District Department of Internal Affairs, in which the former Interior Minister Yury Lutsenko suffered, as well as the regular Popular Assembly with the participation of opposition leaders in the center of Kiev and a new attempt by protesters to get to Mezhyhiria's residence, where Yanukovich lives.
UPD: 14/01/2014 United States embarked on blocking Ukrainian bank accounts
Foreign banks began to block international payments of Ukrainian financial institutions, forcing them to identify the senders of the money.
In particular, the Americans are forcing Ukrainian banks to additionally check their clients for the presence of international economic sanctions against them. Individual US sanctions have not yet been applied against Ukrainian officials, but it seems that preparations for their introduction are underway. There is little doubt that economic officials will impose economic sanctions on some of the top-level officials involved in the bloody dispersal of peaceful protesters on Euromaidan.
There is information that the first, but not the last in the list of international outcasts may be the head of the Interior Ministry Vitaly Zakharchenko. It is not excluded, Viktor Yanukovych with all his "family" will also be recorded there. Officials and politicians who violate the democratic rights and freedoms of citizens, and not only in connection with events on Euromaidan, are at risk of being blacklisted by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, abbreviated as OFAC. Persons on this list, as well as their family members and related companies, will not be able to make international payments in US dollars. All transactions in this currency must pass through US banks. They, in turn, carefully check whether among senders and recipients of payments there are no persons against whom sanctions are imposed. Among other things, OFAC monitors and blocks the financial flows of terrorists, as well as transactions of persons subject to UN or US sanctions. The OFAC list includes several tens of thousands of non-grata persons, among which so far only four companies with Ukrainian shareholders are listed.
When it is precisely with regard to Ukrainian Politically Exposed Persons - influential political figures - that sanctions will be imposed. However, foreign banks have already begun to massively block and delay the international payments of Ukrainian customers at the request of OFAC. The letter of the state Ukreximbank dated January 3, 2014 “Regarding the expanded procedure for customer identification” has been placed at the disposal of the E-Bank. In this message, the state bank warns its Ukrainian counterparties that recently there have been more frequent cases of suspension of payments by foreign banks in order to further identify and comply with international sanctions regimes. "We draw your attention to the strengthening by foreign correspondent banks of monitoring international transactions," the letter says.
UPD: 14/01/2014 Euromaidan approved the appeal of sanctions to the US Senate
The Council of People’s Union Maidan approved an appeal to the US Senate at a meeting of the committee on international affairs on January 15.
Former Foreign Minister of Ukraine Borys Tarasyuk will take the text of the appeal to Washington, which also contains a list of officials for the sanctions, Arsen Avakov, a deputy from Batkivshchyna, said on his Facebook page.
"The Council of the Maidan People’s Association has just decided to fulfill yesterday’s Wiche’s decision and approved the text of the appeal to the US Senate at a meeting of the international affairs committee on January 15. Boris Tarasyuk will take the text of the appeal to Washington, the names of the officials for sanctions. Full text will be made public I’ll just note that Kernes and Dobkin are on the list of sanctions in addition to Kiev officials, ”wrote Avakov.
Recall, hearings on Ukraine in the US Senate are scheduled for January 15. The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Robert Menendez, initiated the hearings.
Representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora met with influential Democratic Senator Robert Menendez. During the meeting, they insisted that the US government take a strong position on Moscow’s pressure on Ukraine, as a result of which the President of Ukraine was forced to refuse to sign an association agreement with the EU. On January 7, the Senate adopted a resolution on Ukraine.
