UPD: 02/25/2014 "Oppo - in * opu". Maidan activists insistently demand lustration of power
Participants in protests in central Kiev continue to demand that the leaders of the new government, who a few days ago were in opposition, appoint synchronized elections of the president with the president’s re-election.
The main task of the participants in the next rally in the center of Kiev, dissatisfied with certain actions of the "opposition" is to achieve the emergence of completely new leaders in Ukraine. Dozens of people came to the government quarter on February 24 with the following posters: “Oppo - to * opu! New power! Re-election! ”,“ It is not permissible to repeat 2004 rock ”,“ Komunyaki, get out of Ukraine! ”,“ Chergov’s zrada! ”,“ Dії, not words! ”,“ Ni - to old people! ”,“ Mi for new politicians ” , "Lustration! The squad is a professional, not a politician! ”
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 of Yanukovych
The Russian edition of Euromag has chosen the most striking, in their opinion, casual statements by Viktor Yanukovich over 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 that Yanukovych laughed at voters before the election during the broadcast of the “Real Candidate” program on the ICTV channel. True, the question that Yanukovych answered in verse was not at all ridiculous - about terrorism and the IAEA.
“The best genocides of the country have gathered here!”
During his election campaign in 2010, speaking in Lviv, Yanukovych was mistaken and called voters “genocides”. After the prompts of the assistants, Yanukovych was not at a loss and corrected himself. "Yes, and the gene pool too."
“Why do drugstore chain stores still exist?” Why are they still working? Why is Ukrainian law and international obligations freely violated? Who is responsible for this, who is poisoning people and youth? ”
In July 2010, at a meeting with law enforcement authorities, Yanukovych was indignant that drugs can be bought on the Internet.
"This is banditry with an office person"
The main phrase, which is remembered by many, has become a metaphor for the president.
“In order to“ Ukraine ”Ukraine, just look at it with your own eyes when the chestnuts in Kiev begin to bloom. And in Ukrainian cities women will undress. Seeing this beauty is wonderful. ”
In January 2011, Yanukovych was embarrassed at a performance in Swiss Davos. He could not pronounce the slogan of the promotional campaign of Ukraine - “Turn on Ukraine” (“Uvimkni Ukraine”). One of the European journalists was outraged and considered the statement of Yanukovych politically incorrect.
“Whoever is caught will sit”
Speaking about corruption in Ukraine, Yanukovych assured that everyone without exception will be held liable for violations, despite the posts.
“I know that there are skeptical views, I can even see by their faces now, I know, my vision is 360%. You smile, sit, and I will say this - we will knock out, knock out. That's who only gets caught in the fist - only the spray will fly. There will be no mercy. No. Got it? Are you on the road to economic development? Are you collecting a corruption tax? Just get caught. Caught a hand - tear off his head. "
Continuing the topic of corruption, during the Ukrainian-Armenian business forum, Yanukovych again stood out with a “loud” speech.
"You can’t go to the future sideways, or, as they say, backwards."
In December 2011, when the president summed up the results of the outgoing year at a press conference, a rather catchy phrase was also uttered.
“There is no 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 emphasized that the government, as well as officials, should contribute to improving the quality of life of people.
“Nobody, as they say, puts fingers in the door to anyone and doesn’t force anyone to commit themselves”
“I say thank you for criticizing and at least not beating.”
In August, the president raised the issue of improving Ukrainian roads, which are still broken and in decline. Yanukovych thanked Ukrainians for criticism, informing 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 the Institute, snipers fired from British rifles - weapons expert
The snipers who shot the protesters on February 20 on Institutskaya Street in the center of Kiev, worked from the building of the Cabinet of Ministers, the hotel Ukraine and others. People equipped with helmets, body armor and shields did not have a single chance to defend themselves from sniper shots.
Journalists of the Groshі program asked the opinion of weapons experts on the rifles that the snipers were armed in the government quarter.
"This is an expensive high-end sniper rifle. It looks very similar to the series of English sniper rifles AV, AE, AVL. This is one of the most accurate and expensive sniper rifles today"
People’s deputy from the Batkivshchyna party Gennady Moskal believes that in addition to the special detachment Alpha, there was another one, 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 was for this unit on budgetary funds that special sniper rifles were purchased. So, for the internal troops they bought special equipment worth 106 million UAH. Among body armor and sights, 80 British AV rifles of $ 10 thousand each. It was these rifles that were spotted by 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 forces of the SBU Alpha, was in charge of the special operation. Moskal is convinced that Asavalyuk most likely had an order not just to kill, but to escalate the civil war. "The protesters should have been killed, but also the law enforcement bodies should have been killed. This is according to the scenario," the People’s Deputy added.
In particular, near the October Palace in Kiev, it was probably Asavalyuk who was seen. He lay on the ground and shot with a sniper rifle.
"He can be identified - everyone was wearing helmets, and he was without a helmet. He never put on a helmet," the MP said.
Recall, the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs initiated criminal proceedings 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 picked up by a sniper - trees, a curbstone. It is visible how he killed them", - the place of murder of activists by a sniper. VIDEO
At the scene of the murder of several activists on Institutskaya Street, the traces of the work of a sniper are clearly visible. Following the traces of bullets left on the bcton pedestal and tree, you can also establish the place from which the sniper shot.
According to Censor.NET, the author of the video, Arkady Babchenko, says that for a sniper it is a very convenient place. From it the whole movement on Institutskaya is completely examined.
"Everything is scrambled by a sniper there. Trees, a curbstone. You can see how he killed them. You can see how he killed, how they hid behind this curbstone, how he picked this curbstone, and how he got there, how they dragged, how they injected pain medication, how then they dragged them behind the wall, as they dragged them to the rear, "he writes in a commentary on the video.
UPD: 02/25/2014 Kiselyov misled tens of millions of Russians and Ukrainians about the events on Euromaidan, - Russian Public College
The Russian Press Complaints Collegium has misinformed a number of stories by the infamous journalist Dmitry Kiselyov about the events in Ukraine that aired in December last year on the Vesti Nedeli program on the Russia-1 state television channel.
Experts convicted the odious TV presenter of bias, bias and violation of journalistic ethics. In their opinion, the stories prepared by Kiselyov * about Ukraine "have clear signs of propaganda carried out through a program that goes on Sunday prime time on a state television channel," notes "Censor.NET" with reference to the "New Region".
A complaint to the Public Collegium on Press Complaints about the Vesti Nedeli program and its host, Dmitry Kiselyov, was addressed by Ukrainian colleagues, Chairman of the Journalism Ethics Commission, Vladimir Mostovoy. The reason was the broadcast of the plot "Ukrainian Chamber".
According to the applicant’s position, Kiselyov’s stories in “Vesti Nedeki” about events in Ukraine, including the aforementioned and the plot “Ukrainian Maidan”, “differ in biased video sequences, synchrony, which, taken out of context, distort the meaning of what was said, and are attempts by the plot authors to create "evidence base" confirming their judgments. "
The Ukrainian Commission on Journalistic Ethics pointed out that in the plot aired on December 8, when describing the events in Ukraine on November 30 and December 1, Kiselyov “deliberately violated the chronological order of events: the violent dispersal of the peaceful protest rally on Independence Square on November 30, presented as a consequence of the actions of the provocateurs during the protest rally near the presidential administration, which actually took place on December 1 ".
In addition, the applicant considered the fragment of the video of the leader of the Freedom party Oleg Tyagnibok cited in the December 8th plot to be defamatory and “tailored” to Kiselev’s conclusions, “since the video taken by the hidden camera cannot relate to the events on Independence Square that are taking place now in Ukraine, because it was first demonstrated on the Internet on October 15, 2012. "
And, finally, in the opinion of Vladimir Mostovy, the disputed plot contains “hate speech”: Russian federal television channels, primarily the Rossiya channel, covering events in Ukraine biased and biased, incite intolerance, distrust and hostility between Ukraine and the Russian Federation, between Russia and the West.
Based on the results of the consideration of the complaint from Kiev, the Board made a decision stating the validity of the charge against the author and host of the Vesti Nedeli program Dmitry Kiselyov of knowingly violating the chronological order of the events of November 30 - December 1, 2013 in the center of the Ukrainian capital. According to the text of the decision, "the violent dispersal of the peaceful protest rally on Independence Square that took place on November 30," the program of December 8 was "presented as a result of the actions of provocateurs during the protest rally near the presidential administration, which, in fact, took place on December 1" .
The board finds Kiselev’s remark addressed to the Ukrainian viewer in the program dated December 15 (“I sincerely want to express my gratitude to the Vesti Nedeli” program in Ukraine, who drew attention to our pardons last Sunday. Well, we’ve lost it, which, however, does not in any way abolish the well-organized logic of the Kiev riots ")" by a trick calculated on a misunderstanding of the meaning said by most Russian viewers. " Having missed the ears of "error" and "blundered", viewers lost sight of the very subject of "confusion." With this in mind, this plot can be considered not as journalistic, but as propaganda, says the College.
The college considers it indicative that neither a clear notice of the complete substitution of fact with fiction, nor a bona fide assessment of the “error”, nor, moreover, apology for misleading tens of millions of people, both Russian and Ukrainian TV viewers Kiselyov did not wait.
The panel also confirms the validity of the applicant’s conclusion that the coverage of events in the subject under consideration is one-sided. Speaking about the injured law enforcement officers, Kiselev does not talk about the protesters and the journalists who suffered the day before during the violent dispersal of Euromaidan.
According to the conclusions of the Board, the plot of the “Ukrainian Veche”, constructed in the logic of fitting life to a propaganda “block”, “is distinguished by insulting low quality, relying on illegibility, undemanding, omnivorous information-dependent part of Russian society, as well as distribution and consolidation in Russian society on the whole, these are the very beginnings. "
The college finds the 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 new Russia Today news agency on the basis of the liquidated RIA Novosti, which, according to officials, would become an instrument of propaganda for the ideology of the current government of the Russian Federation. After being appointed to the post, the host scoffed, speaking on December 8 on the Rossiya TV channel 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 protesters during clashes with the Golden Eagle “the old African military order”; Kiselev called the oppositionists who occupied the Kyiv city administration’s administration “stormtroopers,” etc. Ether Kiseleva outraged both Russians and Ukrainians. Ukrainian journalists even awarded Oscar Kiselev "for lies and nonsense." During the live broadcast of “Russia” from Kiev, a Kiev journalist Vitaly Sedyuk went up to a correspondent for the Russian television channel and said: “Give Oscar to the Rossiya channel and Dmitry Kiselyov for lying and nonsense about Euromaidan.”
In February 2014, "for achievements in labor success, a significant contribution to the socio-economic development of Russia, merit in the humanitarian sphere, strengthening the rule of law, protection of the rights and interests of citizens, many years of conscientious work," President Putin awarded Kiselev the Order of Merit for the Fatherland IV degrees.
Note: The Public Press Complaints Collegium is an independent civil society structure that resolves moral-ethical conflict situations related to the professional activities of journalists. Created in 2005.

UPD: 02/25/2014 "Tea House" Yanukovych in the Crimea opened the door to the inhabitants of the peninsula. VIDEO
Another private residence of the Yanukovych family opened the gate to visitors. This time - on the southern coast of 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 an orphanage, local activists say. The area around, which was privatized by the son of ex-president Alexander Yanukovich *, will be transferred to the local community.
On the territory of the "Yanukovych cottage" there are several buildings for living: in fact, the villa itself, a cottage on the beach, a "fisherman’s house" and outbuildings.
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 Agricultural Sciences voluntarily refused. In 2003, the Crimean government leased it for 49 years to the "Interregional Industrial Union", close to the structures of Yanukovych. In 2008, the Crimean government granted the appeal of the Ministry of Railways to terminate lease agreements for both land plots with a total area of 2.05 hectares and transferred them to Family-type Pension LLC. The founders of the LLC are structures close to Alexander Yanukovych. He himself denied involvement in the Tea House, but in 2012 the Massandra Council decided to submit a plot of land to A. Yanukovych at an address that coincides with the Tea House to service the acquired property.
