UPD: 02/24/2014 Russia calls "to firmly stop extremists who threatened power in Ukraine"
In Russia, they are extremely concerned about the development of the situation in Ukraine. The Kremlin casts doubt on the legitimacy of the actions of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and calls for "harshly stopping extremists who threatened the authorities."
This is referred to in the official statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, published on the agency’s website.
"In recent days, there have been armed clashes of militant thugs, militants from ultra-right nationalist organizations with law enforcement agencies who have defended the security of the civilian population and the interests of the state," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The ministry also notes that the Agreement on the settlement of the crisis in Ukraine of February 21 was not fulfilled, "despite the fact that its signing was witnessed by the foreign ministers of Germany, Poland and France, and the United States, the European Union, other international structures welcomed this document."
The militants are not disarmed, refuse to leave the streets of the cities that they actually control, release administrative buildings, continue acts of violence. It is surprising that a number of European politicians have already hurried to support the announcement of the holding of presidential elections in Ukraine in May of this year, although the Agreement of February 21 stipulates that elections should be held only after the completion of the constitutional reform. It is clear that for the success of this reform all the political forces of Ukraine and all regions of the country should participate in it, and its results should be submitted to a nationwide referendum. We are convinced of the need to fully take into account the concerns of deputies in the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, the Crimea and Sevastopol, which were voiced at the congress in Kharkiv on February 22, "the statement reads.
In addition, the Foreign Ministry calls into question the legitimacy of actions in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
Citing virtually only “revolutionary expediency”, there are stamped “solutions” and “laws”, including those aimed at impairing the humanitarian rights of Russians and other national minorities living in Ukraine. There are calls for an almost complete ban on the Russian language, lustration, the elimination of parties and organizations, the closure of unwanted media, and the lifting of restrictions on the propaganda of neo-Nazi ideology. They are headed for dictatorial and sometimes terrorist methods to suppress those who disagree in various regions of Ukraine. Began to be heard threats against Orthodox shrines. National radicals continue to mock monuments in various Ukrainian cities, and in some European capitals their like-minded people desecrate memorials to Soviet soldiers, ”the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
This development undermines the Agreement of February 21, discredits its initiators and guarantors, and creates a threat to civil peace, the stability of society and the safety of citizens.
We are forced to note that in the position of some of our Western partners, it is not a concern for the fate of Ukraine that is viewed, but a one-sided geopolitical calculation. The fundamental assessments of the criminal actions of extremists, including their neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic manifestations, are not heard. Moreover, willingly or unwittingly, such actions are encouraged. There is a strong impression that the Agreement of February 21, with the tacit consent of its external sponsors, is used only as a cover for advancing the scenario of forced change of power in Ukraine through the creation of “facts on the ground” without any desire to seek a general Ukrainian consensus in the interests of national reconciliation. Particularly disturbing are attempts to attract international organizations to justify this line, including the UN Secretariat.
We urge all those involved in the crisis in Ukraine to show maximum responsibility and not to allow further degradation of the situation, to return it to the legal mainstream, to harshly stop extremists who threaten the power.
UPD: 02/24/2014 In Kiev, warnings appeared that "loud gulbanity" and "thump on the street" became dangerous. A photo
Designer Igor Sklyarevsky created a series of tablets that popularize the "public guard" in the districts.
The first batch of signposts is installed on Krasnoarmeyskaya street near the Palace of Ukraine metro station.
The signs remind local residents that it has become “dangerous” to drink, litter “gop-stop”, “loudly gulbasity” on the streets, and henceforth “a quarter under protection”.
As Sklyarevsky told the Ukrainian Truth. Life, when he began to make these tablets, he had two main tasks.
“First of all, I wanted to somehow help self-defense with identification. I made a logo and stickers that can be printed on vests or pasted onto machines so that people do not attack their own ones in search of a titushka,” the designer says.
"And secondly, I wanted to explain to people that if earlier it was thought that gossip was bad, now active and aggressive gossip is even worse. Besides, being aggressive goon has become dangerous because now it’s not just the police that but ordinary people, "explains Sklyarevsky.
The developer is going to put the files for printing in open access and encourages everyone to print stickers and place where there is a need.
As is known, in the spring of 2013 Sklyarevsky created a series of "hooligan" plates WalkKyiv. The focus was on chestnut trees on Khreshchatyk, purchased in Italy and which turned out to be false; parks that have turned into public toilets (a hooligan badge is installed at the place where Swedish fans quietly are drinking, under the supervision of policemen) is a meeting place for Kiev retirees at the passage to Teatralnaya metro station; Metro on Troyeshchina, which is still not possible.
UPD: 02/24/2014 The Chief of the General Staff Ilyin, by order of Lebedev, left the army against Maidan. DOCUMENTS
On February 20, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces Yuri Ilyin ordered a number of military units to move equipped and armed groups to disperse the Maidan. This is stated in the encryption signed by Ilyin, which has the "Commander".
Such cipher programs were received by the commander of the 25th Separate Airborne Brigade (Dnepropetrovsk), the 79th Separate Airborne Brigade (Nikolaev), the 73rd Special Purpose Maritime Center (Ochakov) and the 1st Separate Marine Corps Brigade.
February 22, Chief of General Staff - Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuri Ilyin told the media that the army remains loyal to the constitutional duty. “The personnel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are in places of permanent deployment and fulfill planned targets,” Ilyin said. But then the Chief of General Staff lied, said journalist Alexei Byk.
The publication suggests convincing evidence that Ilyin, by order of the Minister of Defense Pavel Lebedev *, committed a crime against the Ukrainian people and the Constitution, without even having time to settle down in the new office after being appointed to the post of Chief of the General Staff on February 19.
The approximate number of soldiers he planned to attract is 2.5 thousand.
The basis for the use of troops against the civilian population was the information of the Anti-Terrorist Center under the Security Service of Ukraine that allegedly “maydanovtsy” are planning to seize “potentially dangerous military facilities”.
According to the encryption, Ilyin received a carte blanche for such actions from Minister of Defense Pavel Lebedev.
"According to the decision of the Minister of Defense to attract the forces and means of the armed forces to participate in the antiterrorist operation," the document says.
According to the available information, the military planned to give broad powers: detain citizens, inspect documents, conduct searches, restrict traffic, enter and enter people's dwellings on the basis of suspicion of hiding terrorists, and also use weapons and special means.
Sources of the publication claim that the previous chief of the General Staff, Vladimir Zaman, refused to carry out this order of Lebedev, and that is why he was allegedly replaced by Ilin.
As you know, on February 22 Ilyin declared that the army remains loyal to the people and will not be drawn into a political conflict, and also assured that it did not and will not carry out criminal orders.

UPD: 02/24/2014 How in Kiev they tried to destroy the monument to the Chekists
In Lybidska Square (formerly Dzerzhinsky), Euromaidan activists attempted to demolish the monument to the Chekists.
On Sunday, February 23, around 3:00 pm, young people gathered around the monument, several pensioners, mothers with strollers, activists in balaclava, as well as protesters with flags of Ukraine, UPA, parties UDAR and Svoboda.
Since the monument is too massive, the activists failed to bring down or destroy the monument. Gathered broke off the letters on the monument and destroyed part of the foundation. They tried to destroy the marble star with a hammer, but this could not be done - they painted a trident over it. Also, activists described the monument in red, black and yellow paint. Now the monument is covered with many inscriptions, in particular: "Katy Ukrainy", "Check - for now", "Communism on the smith", "For the Cold Yar", "Golden Eagle XX century".
Not cost the so-called action and without conflict. The participants were divided into two camps: some wanted to split the monument here and now, others - to take it safely and safely to another place, so as not to be like vandals. On this occasion, there was even a vote, in which the radical majority, who wanted to smash the monument to pieces, won. Arbitrarily divided into small groups, people argued to each other that they were right. It was proposed to demolish the monument with an excavator, remove it with a lift and even blow it up. On the last sentence, someone replied: "You can not, right there metro!".
Soon, several Afghans appeared at the scene of the event, knocking around a bit with the guys trying to destroy the monument. Then the skirmish continued in words. The Afghans wanted to preserve the monument and did not want the view of the city to spoil with dilapidated monuments with incomprehensible inscriptions. However, having explained their position, the men left, having achieved nothing. Soon an ad was pasted on the unfortunate monument, which said that the KGB would be transferred to another place until March 10, 2014. However, this did not work on the destroyers. In the end, the activists failed to inflict significant damage to the monument, and soon the crowd dispersed.
