Well it seems as though the residents in the East of Ukraine are getting tired of the separatists using them as Human Shields.


Donetsk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Several hundred Ukrainians in the country's war-torn east demanded Monday that pro-Russian insurgents remove scores of rocket launchers from crowded city neighbourhoods and stop provoking government fire on their homes.



Donetsk residents from a neighbourhood near the airport that insurgents managed to seize after months of some of the war's heaviest clashes in January, accused the insurgents of using them as human shields.

"You are hiding behind our backs," some residents chanted. Others simply shouted "Shame!"

"It has been impossible to live in these conditions for the past year," said a young woman who wanted to be identified only as Lena for fear of retribution from the insurgents.

Not good for the separatists when the civilians are protesting the ones that are supposed to be there for them...Interesting times in Ukraine for sure.

Any other sources for this story?

I guess they already protested the fact that Kiev was bombing them in the first place

The only reason they are being bombed in the first place is the fact that the separatists are firing from residential areas, but feel free to show where Ukraine is just bombing civilian areas that the separatists aren't using as a hiding place?

Can you provide that?

That's a lie, I seen many videos of Kiev shells raining down on busy Ukranian streets, there were no rebels there.

The propaganda war was the giveaway, the West were just to impatient in trying to pin everything on Russia, the greed of Kiev and the Ukranians (regardless of which side they have allegiance to) are paying the price.

War is always a terrible tragedy . Such a waist and the people stuck between the two groups is the biggest crime . It would have been nice if MINSK 2 could have taken the war to words and negotiations instead of bullets and bombs . As for protest ,well they are happening in the west too .

"Pro-Democracy police look on as Right Sector tears up a budding Maidan 3.0 tent city . russia-insider.com...
But unlike the east it seems that bats is what is being used
Things just seem to get worse every day . The Govt going into default and a few western countries sending money ,arms, and military trainers will not fix what is killing the country . It's a mess that seems to be heading down hill

I'm surprised there was no BBC link


Either way, the people of Ukraine are and will continue to pay the price in this civil war.

So you were on those streets and know there were no separatists there?

So just because there were no separatists visible in the videos you say you saw they obviously were not there...seriously?



The propaganda war was the giveaway, the West were just to impatient in trying to pin everything on Russia, the greed of Kiev and the Ukranians (regardless of which side they have allegiance to) are paying the price.


So those weren't Russian troops taking over Crimea and the troops that the separatists already said were there helping them were lying?

Just can't keep the lie going when the people your helping on the supposed down low keep admitting very happily that if it weren't for the Russian troops they would be in trouble.

But you are right Russia is the innocent victim here and the west is causing all the fighting in Ukraine...it didn't convince anyone the first time Russia tried that tactic and it is becoming clear that tactic still isn't working.

Bomb some place then move your artillery.

Film the retaliation and bung it on the internet.

Rinse and repeat

Nyet, nyet, that cannot be. This is not protest! Ukranian peoples love kind gentle 'rebels!' Rebels save Ukranian peoples from Jewish Nazi Junta in Kiev.

Strained Simpsons reference: They are no saying 'booo,' Comrade Putin! They say 'Puuuu-tin. Puuuuuuu-tin' Da. I imagine Lavrov as the Smithers in this scenario, naturally.

No but it was an everyday street with people going about their day, until the shells hit. I get your point, there may have been Pro-Russian Ukranians there but they weren't firing on Kiev positions as far as I know.



So those weren't Russian troops taking over Crimea and the troops that the separatists already said were there helping them were lying?


I have yet to see definitve proof of Russian troops being in Ukraine.



But you are right Russia is the innocent victim here and the west is causing all the fighting in Ukraine...it didn't convince anyone the first time Russia tried that tactic and it is becoming clear that tactic still isn't working.


I never said anything of the kind, both sides have a responsiblity and they both seem to be failing in that respect.

To the population of Ukraine it's a civil war, to the rest of the world, it's a propaganda war to win support for whatever side of the divide you sit on. Be wary of who is saying what without evidence, I know for a fact it's a classic western tactic.

No the population of Ukraine see that this is not a civil war, but an invasion from Russia and have been saying that from the beginning.



to the rest of the world, it's a propaganda war to win support for whatever side of the divide you sit on.


The sanctions say differently as the only way to get them lifted is for Putin to remove his troops from Ukraine...so the world sees this for what it is a Russian invasion and war created by Russia. The sanctions pretty much show that it is more than just a propaganda war.



Be wary of who is saying what without evidence, I know for a fact it's a classic western tactic.


You mean much like what Russian media has done during this whole conflict...gotcha.

mobile.nytimes.com...


Little less biased.


It states that people were protesting Seperatism & the Ukrainian armed forces...

Some want to be moved further from conflict, some want a more aggressive approach from the separatists.



So all in all, nothing like portrayed by Yahoo.

Here you go a little about your source...

www.pbs.org...

And your source considers Igor Strelkov as a hero for his duty in Ukraine...yep no bias there.

And the fact you won't find any criticism of the Russian government only cements the fact as to what they are.
