In Donetsk, where many accept Moscow’s line that Kiev is now ruled by dangerous nationalists bent on making Russian speakers second-class citizens, Kolomoisky is viewed very differently.
“Before all these events, I thought Kolomoisky was a normal businessman. Now Kolomoisky has taken a pro-Nazi, pro-fascist stance that I cannot understand,” said Nikolai Zagoruyko, head of the Party of the Regions faction in Donetsk’s regional parliament.
“He is financing mercenaries … He and Kiev will tear the country apart,” added Zagoruyko, whose party was once led by the ousted president Yanukovich.
Russian investigators accused Igor Kolomoisky, a Ukrainian Jewish billionaire and district governor, of murder and human rights violations.
The accusation came Wednesday in a statement by Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for the Investigative Committee of Russia, a federal body that investigates serious crimes. Igor Kolomoisky Igor Kolomoisky Besides murder, Kolomoisky is suspected of using “prohibited means and methods of warfare,” Interfax quoted Markin as saying.
Similar charges have been brought against Ukraine’s minister of internal affairs, Arsen Avakov. Their actions, Markin said, resulted in the death of more than 100 people and are the subject of an ongoing criminal probe.
Kolomoisky temporarily delivered his private “Dnieper-1” Battalion under the command of law-enforcement officials in Odessa and also authorized a cash payment of $5,000 for “each pro-Russian separatist” killed during the special operation.
Fifteen roadblocks were set up outside of Odessa, secured by militants under the personal command of Kolomoisky’s “Dnieper-1” Battalion, as well as Right Sector’s thugs from Dnepropetrovsk and the western regions of Ukraine. In addition, two military units from the Self-Defense of Maidan arrived in Odessa, under the command of the acting head of the administration of the president, Sergey Pashinsky – the same man who was caught with a sniper rifle in the trunk of his car on February 18 on Independence Square (Maidan) in Kiev
The number that became the official death toll – 46 – included only the dead on the upper floors of the building. The majority of the victims, who were in the basement, were not counted. The exact number of dead is unlikely to ever be known, but most sources claim that between 120 and 130 were killed.
The second leaked conversation, which also emerged on May 14, was between Oleg Noginsky, the president of the Suppliers of Customs Union, an organization which aims at increasing the turnover between Ukraine and the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia, and someone whom he called Jan Borisovich.
" Kolomoisky’s actions are mad. Besides, it was he who hired the guys in the Odessa incident. The situation went out of control. Their task was to beat them so they would be taken to hospital, and to destroy the camp completely."
Kolomoisky is still in Odessa, and the result of his actions is that 16 of those who survived the House of Trade Unions bloodshed in Odessa were killed during the next three days, the man who is believed to be Noginsky accuses the Dnepropetrovsk governor. According to him, it’s not the first time the Dnepropetrovsk governor has threatened politicians. He also allegedly threatened Igor Markov, a deputy of the Ukrainian parliament. RT could not confirm the veracity of the tapes, and Oleg Tsarev was not available for comment at the time of publication. However, he confirmed to the website of Russian TV show, ‘Man and Law’, that this conversation took place.

Image: While US State Department propaganda fails to confirm or deny the use of white phosphorus by Kiev against the people of eastern Ukraine, its propaganda does reveal that the vicious, heavily armed, Neo-Nazi Right Sector front is still operating across Ukraine and in direct cooperation with the regime in Kiev itself.
“Then a video of one of the detained reporters, Evgeny Davydov, appeared on pro-Kiev media, showing him confessing while he was still in captivity that he was forced to put in false information by editors in Moscow, and that in fact he wasn’t even in Slavyansk when the broadcast was edited and had obtained no footage from the town.”
The entry then admits:
“The two correspondents from Zvezda, a TV channel of the Russian Defense Ministry, Davydov and Nikita Konashenkov had been detained 14 June outside Slavyansk, reportedly by Right Sector militants who transferred them to the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) where they were investigated on suspicion of espionage.”

This was an odd day in the east of the Ukraine.
The Donetsk People's Republic published ads in the social media and on Russian tv asking for volunteers, who can steer a tank.
President Proshenko appeared in the Donetsk region, demonstrating that things are under controle and proclaims a unilateral ceasefire for one week.
And on the same day more and more people report Russian tanks within the country. Even an Iskander was reported.
The silence of western politicians can be heard loudly.
“In the near future the investigators will put Avakov and Kolomoisky on the international wanted list and request a court warrant for their arrest,” according to IC spokesman Vladimir Markin.
Always the realist President Putin pointed out that the Right Sector and the illegal far right military formations have not disarmed which after the events in Odessa, which the President said must be investigated, the people in the south east have every right to say: “Sure, we lay down our arms, and tomorrow they come and burn us alive!”
July 4 at the information center "South-Eastern Front" interview about Odessa with journalist Irina Lashkevich.
Irina speaks about the investigation of the tragedy on May 2 in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa. She noted that "Governor established a commission, which publishes the results of its work. It amazes me the fact that in the basement of the House of Trade Unions there are 7 floors. The journalist and people are told only about one floor. Walled doors there. Nobody is trying to get to the truth. Facts are concealed. People have been poisoned by chlorine - it is a proven fact. Then they were destroyed. At about 50 people was shot to death at lower floors.
