A video showing the layout of a specific area in Maidan where this gruesome event happened. It shows the Hotel Ukraine that was under control by the rebels in February 20. This is the same hotel that people say Andrey Parubiy blocked off to keep investigations from taking place. At the time, the lobby was completely occupied by protesters.
This one is a video with better resolution.
Skip to 12:05 for the important part.
Once more at 14:14.
14:31 bullet hits the back of the tree in the middle of the screen
(3 people shot within the same time frame as the bullet hitting the back of the tree.)
There are two very distinct sets of characteristics between the shots coming from behind, and the shots from the police line. The shots from behind are much louder, and higher pitched.
16:00 bullet ricochet from the ground made of concrete. Sniper fire from the green building to the north?
16:35 guy with white hat shot from behind.
16:46 bullet hits tree from behind.
16:52 guy with green jacket gets shot from behind.
You can tell the shots were from behind as the shots were higher pitched.
34:30 shots from close range, hitting metal objects at close range.
This video by German TV shows that rebel snipers were stationed at various places near the incident. Both at ground level and at elevation.
This video here is a longer version of the BBC Newsnight video I posted earlier this month. It’s also a video with better quality so that I can provide better context for readers. 7:00 is where the reporters come under fire.
I don’t recall seeing any of this important info being pushed by the news at all during the month of Feb, March or April. And it would be funny to believe that Obama, Harper, and Cameron aren’t scrambling to keep their shit in one piece seeing that they are political leaders. To think that these 3 and their subordinates, mourned the deaths of those protestors on TV worldwide, all the while defending the party responsible for it, says a lot about just how completely devoid they are of consideration for the people of Ukraine.
