UPD: 02/25/2014 "Oppo - in * op". Maidan activists insistently demand lustration of power
The participants of protest actions in the center of Kiev continue to demand from the leaders of the new government, who a few days ago were in opposition, to appoint re-elections synchronous with the re-election of the president.
The main task of the participants of the next rally in the center of Kiev, dissatisfied with the separate actions of the “oppositionists”, is to achieve the entry into power of absolutely new leaders in Ukraine. Dozens of people came on February 24 to the government quarter with the following posters: “Oppo - in * op! New power! Re-election! ”,“ It is not permissible to repeat 2004 ”,“ Komunyaki, get out of Ukraine! ”,“ Chergova Zrada! ”,“ Di'i, not words! ”,“ All the Old Frames! ”,“ Mi for the New Politic ” , “Lyustratsiya! Order of professionals, not politic! ".
UPD: 02/25/2014 One stick, two strings, I am the master of the whole country. The Russian edition has collected 10 of the most striking quotes Yanukovych
The Russian edition of Euromag chose the most striking, in their opinion, casus remarks of Viktor Yanukovych during the four years of his presidency.
"I will tell you, this is not a balalaika: one stick, two strings, I am the master of the whole country"
It was with this phrase even before the election that Yanukovych’s ridiculed voters during the broadcast of the “Real Candidate” program on the ICTV channel. True, the question that Yanukovych answered in verse was not at all funny - about terrorism and the IAEA.
“The best genocides of the country have gathered here!”
During his election campaign in 2010, speaking in Lviv, Yanukovych made a mistake and called voters "genocides." After the help of assistants, Yanukovych did not lose his head and corrected himself. "Yes, and the gene pool too."
“Why do network drug distribution stores still exist? Why do they still work? Why is Ukrainian legislation and international obligations violated freely? Who is responsible for this, who is poisoning people and young people? ”
In July 2010, at a meeting with law enforcement agencies, Yanukovych was outraged that you can buy drugs online.
"This is banditry with an office face"
The main phrase, which many people remember, has become the president’s metaphor.
“In order to“ leave Ukraine ”, it is enough to look at it with my own eyes when chestnuts start to bloom in Kiev. And in Ukrainian cities, women will begin to undress. Seeing this beauty is wonderful. ”
In January 2011, Yanukovych was embarrassed at a performance in the Swiss Davos. He was unable to pronounce the slogan of the promotional campaign of Ukraine - “Turn on Ukraine” (“Move to Ukraine”). One of the European journalists was outraged and considered Yanukovych’s statement politically incorrect.
"Who will be caught, he will sit"
Speaking about corruption in Ukraine, Yanukovych assured that everyone without exception will be held accountable for violations, despite the posts.
“I know that there are skeptical views, I even see faces now, I, you know, have 360% vision. You smile, sit, and I will say this - we will knock out, knock out. That's who just gets under the fist - only the spray will fly. There will be no mercy. No. Got it? Stand on the path of economic development? Are you collecting a corruption tax? Just get caught. Got a hand - tear off his head. "
Continuing the theme of corruption, during the Ukrainian-Armenian business forum, Yanukovych again stood out with a “loud” speech.
"You can not go into the future sideways, or, as they say, backwards."
In December 2011, when the president summed up the outgoing year at a press conference, a rather memorable phrase was also uttered.
“You don’t need to look for a reason that interferes with bad dancers.”
In January 2013, at a meeting of the Committee on Economic Reforms, the president stressed that the government, as well as officials, should contribute to improving the quality of life of people.
“No one, as they say, does not insert fingers into the door of anyone and does not force them to take on obligations”
“I thank you that you criticize and at least do not beat.”
In August, the president raised the issue of improving Ukrainian roads, which are still broken and in a state of decline. Yanukovych thanked the Ukrainians for their criticism, informing the TV channels.
“Do not humiliate us. We are not small children, we don’t go for sweet candies ”
In November last year, during an interview, Yanukovych commented on his dissatisfaction with EU conditions.
UPD: 02/25/2014 At Institutskaya snipers shot from British rifles - weapons expert
Snipers who shot at the protesters on February 20 on Institutskaya Street in the center of Kiev, worked from the Cabinet building, the hotel Ukraine and others. People equipped with helmets, body armor and shields, had no chance to protect themselves from sniper shots.
Journalists of Groshi program asked the opinion of weapon experts on rifles that snipers in the government quarter were armed with.
"This is an expensive high-end sniper rifle. It looks a lot like a series of English sniper rifles AV, AE, AVL. This is one of the most accurate and expensive sniper rifles today"
MP from the party Batkіvschina Gennady Moskal believes that in addition to the special squad Alpha, there was another, whose name is ?? Shadow. It was created specifically to ensure order during the Euro 2012 football championship.
“It was called the special operations unit,” Moskal said.
It is for this unit at the budget funds were acquired special sniper rifles. So, for the internal troops purchased special equipment for 106 million UAH. Among the body armor and sights of 80 British rifles AV $ 10 thousand each. Such rifles were seen near the fighters near the Presidential Administration on February 20.
According to Moskal, an experienced colonel Sergey Asavalyuk, who previously served as a sniper in the special division of the SBU Alpha, led the special operation. Moskal is convinced that most likely Asavalyuk had an order not only to kill, but to escalate a civil war. "There should have been killed protesters, but there should also have been killed by law enforcement agencies. This is the script," the people's deputy added.
In particular, it was Asavalyuk who was probably seen near the October Palace in Kiev. He lay on the ground and fired a sniper rifle.
“He can be identified - everyone was wearing helmets, and he was without a helmet. He never wore a helmet,” the MP said.
Recall, the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs opened a criminal proceeding regarding the massacre of people in the center of Kiev.
Dozens of officials are suspected of involvement in this crime.
UPD: 02/25/2014 "Everything is scammed by a sniper - trees, a pedestal. It is clear that he killed them" - the place where activists killed a sniper. VIDEO
At the site of the murder of several activists on Institutskaya Street, traces of the sniper’s work are clearly visible. Following the traces of the bullets left on the bktonnoy curbstone and a tree, you can install and the place from which the sniper shot.
According Tsenzor.NET, the author of the video Arkady Babchenko said that for a sniper - this is a very convenient place. The whole movement on Institutskaya is completely looked up from it.
“The sniper is all there. Trees, stand. It’s clear how he killed them. It’s clear how he killed, how they hid behind this stand, how he picked this stand, and how he did get caught, how he used painkillers, then they dragged them behind the wall as they pulled them to the rear, "he writes in a comment to the video.
UPD: 02/25/2014 Kiselev misled tens of millions of Russians and Ukrainians about the events on Euromaidan - Russian Public Collegium
The Russian Public Collegium on Press Complaints acknowledged as misinformation a number of plots of the notorious journalist Dmitry Kiselev about events in Ukraine that aired last December in the program "News of the Week" on the state Russia-1 TV channel.
Experts caught odious TV presenter in bias, bias and violation of journalistic ethics. In their opinion, the stories about Ukraine prepared by Kiselev * "have clear signs of propaganda carried out through a program that goes on Sunday prime time on the state television channel," notes Tsenzor.NET with reference to "New Region".
The Ukrainian colleagues, Vladimir Mostovoi, Chairman of the Commission on Journalistic Ethics, complained to the Public Collegium on Press Complaints about the News of the Week program and its presenter Dmitry Kiselev. The occasion was the airing of the plot "Ukrainian veche".
According to the position of the applicant, Kiselev’s stories in the “News of the Week” about events in Ukraine, including the above-mentioned and the story “Ukrainian Maidan”, “differ in a biased video sequence, synchronies that, when taken out of context, distort the meaning of what was said, and are the authors’s attempts to create "evidence base" supporting their judgment. "
The Ukrainian Commission on Journalism Ethics indicated that in the story broadcast on December 8, when describing events in Ukraine on November 30 and December 1, Kiselev had "consciously violated the chronological order of events: forceful dispersal of a peaceful protest on Independence Square, which occurred on November 30, presented as a result of the actions of provocateurs during a protest action near the presidential administration, which actually took place on December 1. "
In addition, the applicant considered the fragment of the video recording of the leader of the Freedom party Oleg Pygnibok as defamatory and “tailored” to the conclusions of Kiselev, considered in the plot of December 8, because the video shot by a hidden camera cannot relate to the events on Independence Square that occur now in Ukraine, because it was first demonstrated on the Internet on October 15, 2012. "
And finally, according to Vladimir Mostovoy, the contested plot contains “hate speech”: Russian federal TV channels, primarily the Russia TV channel, covering events in Ukraine tendentiously and biased, incite intolerance, mistrust and hostility between Ukraine and the Russian Federation, between Russia and the West.
Following the consideration of the complaint from Kiev, the Board made a decision, which states that the accusation of Dmitry Kiselyov, the author and presenter of the News of the Week program, was substantiated in a deliberate violation of the chronological order of events November 30 - December 1, 2013 in the center of the Ukrainian capital. According to the text of the decision, "the forceful dispersal of a peaceful protest rally on Independence Square, which took place on November 30," in the program of December 8 was "presented as a result of actions of provocateurs during a protest action near the presidential administration, which, in fact, took place on December 1" .
The college finds a replica of Kiselev in the program of December 15th related to this “confusion”, but addressed to a Ukrainian TV viewer (“I sincerely want to express my gratitude to the viewers of the“ News of the Week ”program in Ukraine who paid attention to our pardons last Sunday. Well, they hurt, which, by the way, does not in any way cancel the logic of the Kiev riots ")" with a ploy intended not to understand the meaning of what most Russian TV viewers said. " Having missed the "mistakes" and "blunders", the viewers missed the subject of "confusion" as well. With this in mind, this story can be viewed not as journalistic, but as propaganda, the Board believes.
The collegium considers it indicative that neither a clear notification of a perfect substitution of fact by fiction, nor a fair assessment of the “error”, nor, especially, an apology for misleading tens of millions of people, both Russian and Ukrainian television viewers of Kiselyov did not wait.
The college also confirms the validity of the applicant's conclusion that the coverage of the events in the subject plot is one-sided. Speaking of injured law enforcement officers, Kiselev does not speak about protesters and journalists who suffered the day before during the violent dispersal of Euromaidan.
According to the conclusions of the College, the plot "Ukrainian veche", constructed in the logic of fitting life to a propaganda "block", "differs in an offensively low quality, based on promiscuity, undemanding, omnivorous information-dependent part of Russian society, as well as distribution and consolidation in Russian society in general, it is precisely these principles. "
The board finds a situation of expanding and strengthening the presence of propaganda in the Russian media "definitely abnormal" and considers it necessary to draw the attention of the journalistic community to this situation.
Recall that in early December, Kiselev was appointed director of the Russia Today news agency on the basis of the liquidated RIA Novosti, which, according to officials, will become an instrument of propaganda for the ideology of the current government of the Russian Federation. After his appointment to the post, the host disgraced himself, speaking on December 8 on the TV channel "Russia" with his point of view on what is happening in Kiev on Euromaidan. He spoke about the "horrors" of the protests and the allegedly sad prospects of joining the European Union for Ukraine. Kiselev used controversial metaphors, for example, he called the actions of the protesters during clashes with the "Berkut" an "ancient African military order"; Oppositionists who occupied Kiev city administration called Kiselev “stormtroopers”, etc. Ether Kiseleva outraged both Russians and Ukrainians. Ukrainian journalists even handed Kiselyov an Oscar "for lies and nonsense." During the live broadcast of "Russia" from Kiev, Kiev journalist Vitaly Sedyuk approached the correspondent of the Russian TV channel and said: "Pass the Oscar to the Russia TV channel and Dmitry Kiselev for lying and the nonsense about Euromaidan."
In February 2014, "for the achievements of labor success, a significant contribution to the socio-economic development of Russia, achievements in the humanitarian sphere, strengthening the rule of law, protecting the rights and interests of citizens, long-term and conscientious work" President Putin awarded Kiselev with the Order "For Services to the Fatherland" IV degree.

UPD: 02/25/2014 Yanukovych’s “Tea House” in the Crimea opened the doors to the inhabitants of the peninsula. VIDEO
Another private residence of the Yanukovych family opened the gates to visitors. This time - on the southern coast of the Crimea, in the village of Otradnoe.
According to Channel 5, among the locals this estate is known as the "tea house". A small palace with access to the sea in the future may become a children's home - say local activists. The territory around, which is privatized by the son of ex-president Alexander Yanukovych *, will be transferred to the local community.
On the territory of "Yanukovych's summer residence" there are several buildings for living: in fact, the villa itself, a cottage on the seashore, a "fisherman's house" and a farm building.
The Tea House was built in Otradnoye on the site of the old ampelographic collection of the Magarach Institute, from which the presidium of the Academy of Agrarian Sciences voluntarily refused. In 2003, the Crimean government transferred it for 49 years to the Interregional Industrial Union, close to the structures of Yanukovych. In 2008, the Crimean government granted an appeal to the IPU to terminate lease agreements for both plots with a total area of 2.05 hectares and transferred them to Family Pension. The founders of the LLC are structures close to Alexander Yanukovych. He himself denied any involvement in the Tea House, but in 2012, the Massandrovskiy Soviet decided to present a piece of land to A. Yanukovych at the address that coincides with the Tea House to service the acquired property.
