Images From Ukraine Clashes After Three Killed Overnight - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Following the deaths of three protesters (two from gunshot wounds) after the government crackdown overnight instigated by the increasingly hard-line President Yanuckovich, the streets are becoming markedly more tense and violent. The uprising in Ukraine is not simply one of a youthful population dismayed at not joining Europe. Similar in vein to Thailand's protests, Ukrainians have become disgusted with the corruption in government (and increasingly enraged at Yanuckovich's repressive laws against the protesters). As Martin Armstrong warned recently, "welcome the ticking clock measuring how little time we have until this whole things just goes bust." As the following images of the war-torn-looking streets of Ukraine show, perhaps that clock is closer than many think...

 

Live Feed:

Via Reuters,

Azarov said earlier on Wednesday that police deployed on the streets did not possess firearms and the interior ministry has denied that police have used guns during the crisis.

 

In the worst violence that anyone can remember in Kiev, a 200-metre stretch of the city center close to government buildings has been turned into a battle zone as hard-core protesters, ignoring opposition leaders' pleas for calm, have bombarded police with petrol bombs and cobblestones.

 

Riot police have replied with rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas.

 

Wednesday's violence erupted ironically as Ukraine marked 'National Unification Day' - the day in 1919 which brought together that part of the country that had been under Russian rule with that which had been in the Austro-Hungarian empire.

 

In a Unification Day message, Yanukovich expressed the conviction that 2014 would be a year of "mutual understanding and frank discussion about our common future".

The President calls for Compromise...

 

As Martin Armstrong noted:

The protest in Ukraine are getting really out of hand. Even the Russians have now said this is too much. Over 100,000 people have responded with violence as the President ignores the people and the corruption is simply our of control. This is turning into war on the city streets.

Yanukovych_Viktor

 

The President Viktor Yanuckovich comes from the East where they speak Russian, not Ukrainian. When he tries to speak Ukrainian on TV, he does not even get the accent down correctly. This is primarily about corruption. However, his repressive laws against the protesters have only brought out more people who see the country headed back into Communism.

 

But the following images are stunning...

Is the Ukranian President's house in this "200 meter stretch in downtown Kiev"??

If not, you're protesting in the wrong place.  If you want him out, then GO THROW HIM THE FUCK OUT.  Does burning down the center of a city get him any closer to the exit?

Their Government's true adversary are not the "student" or "unruly protesters" -- who are just the unwitting paws -- but TPTB in the US and the EU, who are hell-bent on encircling Russia like a boa encircles its prey and tightens the hold with each exhale.

It might also help them to offer an Alternative & Better Vision for Ukraine than that which the EU 'promises'. 

The Ukraine and Russian governments need to "out" the Central Banksters of the 'West' (i.e. UK, US) with copious "truthiness", repeated endlessly via a counter-culture.  D&C (dive & conquer) the student/protest movement with their own message & movement.  Statements and cameo/guest-appearances on RT won't do, sorry to say.  That mode is way to passive, for it to sink in and stay in.

The gun grab has been tried numerous time and failed. Fast & Furious, Sandy Hook, Colorado, etc. TPTB know that they have to engineer something much bigger to try to pull this off, but the bigger the black swan, the greater the internet uncovers the truth and communicates the lie, and the bigger the likely blowback. Blowback with pissed off gunowners is NOT what TPTB want. They will keep trying, but it will be more Sandy Hook type events, one after the other, or a Gabby Giffords type event with a much bigger politician. Be vigilant and prepare for it.

As to the FSA, if the free shit parade ends, the only violence you will get is from the FSA to reinstate the free shit parade. No revolution, just expanding the welfare state. The real revolution will come from where it always comes from. The disaffected youth. The urban teens to 20-somethings that are saddled with unpayable college debt, living at home, no job and no prospects, but with lots of unrealistic desires. TPTB understand this too. That's why they are trying to control the youth by keeping them addicted to weed and mindless reality tv and video games. Take away something that is near and dear to them and that will be the spark. Take away their cellphone and icrap and watch them explode. That's why the NSA issue is such a big deal. These youths are starting to understand that connection. Teach them, and exploit it.

You certainly won't see Americans fighting for their liberties or sovereignty like the Ukraine or Egypt which is why these two Countries are in the condition they are in.

If we were to have a revolution it would keep the "Orange Projects" to a minimum because our police state would be too busy at home to fuck with anybody else abroad!

Just like after WWII, the Russians have time on their side and the Europeans, like the Americans when they still had the monopoly of the atomic bomb, do not realize the opportunity passing before them to put a final mortal touch to Russian expansion. The Americans are also to blame, because they seem only to look at the perils of a stronger European Union and do not see the longer term problem a pro-Russian Ukrain will face them with.

Ukranians are fighting corruption, they're not "pro EU", they just want to get rid of the corruption.  It's really bad over there and permeates the entire culture, from top to bottom.  I have some friends in Kiev.  Once while visiting, we got into a car accident.  It was my friend Valera's fault.  As the cop was filling out his report, he told Valera that for $100 he would shift the blame on to the other driver.   From top to bottom, there is no justice in Ukraine....it's all about bribery.  If you are a bandit, you live like a king and can literally get away with murder....if you are an ordinary citizen, you better move over when the man with the money crosses your path.

West Ukraine is most Poles that are not Ukrainian blood.

Better study the history.

Ukraine was actually doing better until Orange criminals who stole gas to themselves and failed to Russia for gas consumed by Ukraine consumers...Of course media blamed Russia.

"Stealing Popcorn" youtube   US Prosecutors telling of investigate Yulia stealing, money launder and offshore...

Lazarenko...who shared some deals...was prosecuted and years in US prison

Orange revolution set Ukraine back ten years...

Currently is Orange 2.0 attempt

Violence erupted in Ukraine as riot police moved to disperse protesters after a three-day stand-off. Kiev streets are covered with smoke from tires set alight by rioters and clouds of tear gas, which police are using in the crackdown. Chaos reigns as the city engulfed in worst clashes in years.

RT is way off on crowd estimates.

Hard to understand why.

There are not many in this violence.

One to three thousand and that include some non participants spectators coming and going

Media has lied big about the crowd sizes since this started.

But why RT?

Concerns mounting day by day that ZH has been seriously co-opted.  One moronic mainstream media piece after another posted as if they actually deserve credibility or consideration.

The West is behind this. Ukraine is just another CIA "color revolution" that failed. The West is having a hissy fit because they lost to Putin (AGAIN), and is using their propaganda outlets to cover the "protests" they themselves are inciting. What, any of that is new news here? I don't think so.

Another thing: if these protests were being held in D'ohbama's "America", one can only imagine the violence and brutality that would be used on the protestors. Piles and piles of dead by now whose deaths would be justified by classifying them as "domestic terrorists"

This tyranny has lost the right and ability to criticize anyone else. Ditto its lapog "newsmedia"

Come back to us ZH.

The Riot Police in KIEV should employ the non-lethal mass disperser, and since now is the freezing winter it comes to my idea to deploy the SNOW DISPENSER, it will be a great tool to disperse the protesters rapidly and  peacefully.

I'm inspired by the methods used by the sculpturers in building or maintaining their ice and snow sculptures in 2014 Harbin Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival; one of the tools they are using is snow dispenser to expedite their works.

 

Check this picture of snow dispenser

this one is clearer and of newer picture

I'm also quite aware that the ZATO is attempting to further expand its containment towards Russia till its footsteps, incl. removing its Black Sea homebase. The EU farce is just the 1st bait.

After the inclusion of Baltic tiny spots and the Eastern European, the ZATO is now expanding on the ex-USSR....the weak hands of the SCO will be the main targets.

Russia will be a big fool to allow it happens!

You forgot to mention one furious fact: in the whole world protesters burn cars and shops and police+goverment tries to prevent it at all costs. In Ukraine goverment hires "Titushkas" and pays them money to do it in Kiev and blame real protesters and at the same time people of Kiev hunt them, catch them, and when giving them to policemans - police ESCAPES cause they know what's what.
