They were brought down by these handguns.


Since when is a Rocket Propelled Grenade a "handgun." That is military equipment. Do you still expect anyone to believe that this is not Russian Special Forces at work?

MOSCOW, May 02./ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian aviation authorities have unilaterally banned Russian air companies to make flights to the eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Kharkiv starting from Friday, May 2, Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency stated on Friday.

“The Federal Air Transport Agency informs that Ukrainian aviation authorities had banned unilaterally Russian air companies to make flights to airports in Donetsk and Kharkiv starting from May 2, 2014,” the agency’s press release said.

Russia’s air transport authority noted that this ban was an unprecedented violation of international air traffic agreements, encroached strongly on the rights of passengers and led to a humanitarian blockade of residents in south-eastern Ukrainian regions.

Can somebody please explain to me how quoting a CIA shill source is "denying ignorance"?

There is absolutely no issue with quoting official CIA releases, but listing here of all places an actual CIA disinformation operation as "news"?

How does that work? So RT is bad propaganda and everyone should just disregard it as complete trash, but a totally CIA media-shill financed entirely with our tax dollars is totally A-OK....

Really? ATS it is not...

This is what I think about that;


ATS has been infiltrated and infested with western establishment-paid shills...?

Odessa Live Stream

Its pretty awful stuff. I've spotted a few masked men with handguns and people are literally tearing bricks up from the road surface. The police can't do a lot at the moment but it appears that the pro-Russian protesters are heavily outnumbered.
