MT @yyasyaa Two of the dead are our patriots. The [pro-Russians] are led to their bodies and forced to kneel. Painful to watch.

From a reporter in Odessa...

@howardamos: Looks like another 2 dead bodies. That brings the total that I have seen to 7. And I have only been on the fringes of this.

@howardamos: The fire in the trade union building appears to be out, and resistance crushed. Bodies still lying in the street.

Screw the Euromaidan, when you bring Helicopters and tanks on general civilian populations then any resources available will be used for defense. There is no proof that SAMs were used to bring helicopters down, those can be brought down by 1000s of ways.


I thought i might leave you this for the rest of your posts:

Samantha Power ‏@AmbassadorPower 23m Fact that #Ukraine has taken steps to try to restore order and take back territory from separatists is what any nation would do. Collapse

Apparently action against pro-Russian separatists in Slavyansk is being carried out now. It paused for some minutes while negotiations were being held but then apparently resumed.




@PierreCrom:
Heavy shootout in #sloviansk #ukraine Earing it from window of hotel





@NewRobRoy:
Intense firefights going on right now near #Sloviansk between Russian-backed rebels and the #Ukrainian military.

I think if you tried to occupy government buildings in the same fashion as the "Pro Russians" in my country
(The UK), then you would find yourself at the centre of attention by the SAS.

You would be brought out dead or Alive.

Ukraine is being very leniant in my opinion.

Your right thats the one thing i dont understand about the russian position on this. If armed men started taking over buildings in Russia they go in and kill them. They've done it already remember the theater in Moscow they went in and killed everyone Including hostages. But yet some how they expect Ukraine not to react.

I'm from the UK too but you've got to realise some some of there military service is corrupt as some men have given up and switched sides very easily.

We have a better policing infrastructure in the UK so such events wouldn't occur in the first place. If things did occur then the SAS or even armed response units would control the situation very swiftly i.e. building raids.

Russian Foreign Ministry apparently claimed US State Department involvement in Sloviansk operation, which John Kerry denounces as 'outrageous fiction':


@JohnKerry:
@mfa_russia statement claiming @StateDept involvement in #Slavyansk operation is outrageous fiction. Glad free press can smell propaganda.


Not sure where to find the Russian report to which Kerry was referring.

@SkyNewsBreak: Reuters: Ukrainian police say 32 people have been killed in a building fire in Ukraine's southern port city of Odessa
This is what Russia were waiting for. Thoughts and prayers with the victims and their loved ones.

@ReutersWorld: Correction: 38 people killed in building fire in Ukraine's southern city of Odessa, not 32 as previously reported.
Tonight and tomorrow is going to be tense. This is Russia's 'justification'.

@jamesmatesitv: Appalling death toll still rising in #Odessa Now #Ukraine authorities saying 38 dead in building, 30 from fire, 8 jumping from windows.

I fear you are right. This is exactly what the GRU have been trying to provoke.

So you still think this is a ploy from Russia? Really ?

I'm sorry for the people who died, I hope one day the real criminals will be held accountable.
