Ukraine | Shocking Analysis from the Prosecutor General Office: Poroshenko and all who fought there will answer for Donbass

This report – in Russian as well as English – is on the Ukraine Prosecutor’s judgement that the army in Donbass is acting illegally. It is very important, not just for Ukraine but also because it means the West has been supporting war crimes for the last six years. It is one of the Western narratives that is starting to unravel.

After taking an overnight train from Kiev, we arrived in Odessa and were met by two anti-Maidan supporters who have been our very kind hosts.  After resting for a while, we met with Alex Meyevski, who was a survivor of the attack on the protesters in Kulikovo Field at the House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014.

Ukraine | Odessa Report 1, Arriving in Kiev: What Happened on the Maidan 5 Years Ago?

by Joe Lombardo

I am in Kiev, Ukraine with Pippa Bartolotti, a UNAC supporter from Wales, on our way to Odessa where there will be a mobilization to remember the massacre of more than 40 people who were at the Odessa House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014. The people at the House of Trade Unions were holding a vigil to protest the US supported coup that took place in Maidan starting in late 2013. The massacre was carried out by right-wing, pro-fascist forces many associated with the Right Sector, a coalition of pro-fascist organizations who had come to Odessa from throughout the country for a soccer match and used the opportunity to attack the protesters. More than 40 were killed and around 100 injured and although there are many cell phone videos showing people shooting the protesters and Molotov cocktails being made and thrown, no one has been prosecuted for the murders.

Je n’ai pas très bien compris s’il fallait le signer ou seulement les participants, je ne peux pas m’y rendre mais je signe sans problème et je suis sûre que nombreux seront les Français qui en feront autant
