Ukraine's 'Freedom-Seeking' Nationalists Protest Government Building, Ministers Evacuated - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


Well that didn't take long.. the "nationalists" who freed the country from Yanukovych's apparent corrupt government in favor of a well-chosen US leadership, are now turning on the replacements:


Of course, this is a day after the party's leader was allegedly killed by Police, and following lawmakers demands that citizens return any illegally held guns. It seems reveolution is addictive...


Of course, bear in mind that the lawmakers are still discussing whether to vote for and approve the IMF aid package and this suggests things are on hold for a while...


Hundreds of the Right Sector members flood the square in front of Verkhovna Rada in the Ukrainian capital on Thursday night. Wearing masks and brandishing bats, they were shouting "Avakov, get out!"


Via RT,


Things are starting to get heated...

And there's always time for a #selfie...

I assume the national party makes up a small % but how many of these cats are there?

Let's see... 10% of 40 million makes for about 4 million of these cats. Hence the reason why Russian speakers in the East and South prefer not to stick around.

But the party's results in the elections were much better than that with 10,44%[nb 1] (almost a fourteenfold of its votes compared with the 2007 parliamentary elections[35][51]) The lion's share of these votes votes were won in Western Ukraine (30-40% in three Oblasts), while in Eastern Ukraine it won 1% of the votes.

And this is the problem with revolution.  Once law is overturned the revolutionaries find out that even they need law in order to be recognized.  Bút since they got rid of the legitamite govt., then logically anyone with a beef with the new boss can just do another revolution.  Chaos is in charge and it's taking out the new boss.

I think 'anarchist' implies violence (whether that's an MSM-installed perception is up for debate). Those patchouli oiled stinkers don't qualify as more than degraded hippies. Lord knows how many months after "Occupy Oakland" was formed and dissolved, these vegan, pot smoking layabouts are still here. The regular homeless don't like them either.

The real question is will Right Sector simply burn everything to the ground, simply for the other players not being in Right Sector.

  Short hand..EU/West tried to enslave and take over another nation and inch closer to Russian NATO buffer Ukraine..supported a coup and throw out the constitution and have failed again as expected..guess they should have spent some more cash either that or the actual Ukraine people have no desire to have their assets pledged for IMF collateral...

   Im sure the U.S. however will have a issue if their new installed leaders coup leaders are counter couped?? Up is down. So we threw money at a few mercenaries..Putin got Crimea..a tip of the hat of how far the U.S. will go to get that pipeline through and those bases further East towards Russia and nothing to show for it and Putin will likely walk away with the Ukraine and a few other former U.S.S.R. lands in the next decade. 

    Brought them closer to China, India and a potential reserve currency and made us look powerless (Which we are) when it comes to nations that can defend themselves.

...or maybe a majority of Ukrainians were against joining Putin's Eurasian Economic Union because these Ukrainians still harbor ill-will dating back to the Soviet occupation?  Just maybe?  I saw on-the-ground interviews where Maidan protestors did not want to join either Putin's EEU or the EU, but felt like the EU was the lesser of two evils becuase of the prevelance of mediating institutions within the EU whereas Putin's "soverign democracy" and EEU looks like a very simliar version of Soviet authoritarianism.

  I agree do not think many of them are too keen but I do think if the truth comes out about the EU/US wanting to use them as a pawn and potentially shackle them with debt to extract cash and resources out of them and usurp their "true sovereignty" that they may lead them back into their arms because of their interference...especially if they determine that the sniper fire came from XE troops or provocateurs. 

    I do know that this should not in anyway be our problem nor they entitled to the wealth of the citizens here in the U.S. to later enrich the buddies at the top end of the pyramid.

@John McCloy

You're right and it is obvoius that Ukraine is being used by both sides (US/EU and Russia).  There are no easy answers here and I don't know what path the Ukrainian people will ultimately choose, but one thing that boggles my mind is that I read so many ZH posts that seem to rip Ukrainians for ousting the obviously corrupt Yankovych.  Tymoshenko may be just as corrupt (though she has not been installed as PM), but it's nice to see some citizens taking matters into their own hands, rather than (as here in the West), playing minecraft or Candy Crush, spending all day on FaceBook and taking selfies....good for the people of Ukraine for fighting political corrpution.

Yes, the big boys shouting at each others, almost coming to blows, but Ukranians had already lost Crimea to Russia and 40 tons of Gold to US. And they find out they would be sold to IMF/US/EU as serfs and the money go to Russia and China. In the end, they are pissed.

Cursive and McCloy - you seem to get it.

The question is, do the Ukrainians want 'freedom' under the IMF or 'freedom' under Putin?

At this point those are the 2 choices on the table.  Perhaps a 3rd option will develop.

Sadly, it seems like WW2 all over again for Ukraine.  Side with the Soviets who created a famine that killed ~6 million of your people OR join up with the Nazis.  Its sooo easy to throw out labels like 'fascist and Neo-Nazsi'  at Western Ukrainians once again, but given 'the choice' they had back then.....could the Nazi's do any worse than another man-made famine that would kill another ~6 million?   There was always a chance I guess.  But what kind of a FALSE choice was that?

Its non-stop pain for the common man in Ukraine.  All they want is a chance.  Here we go again.

Do you think that there might be non-sovereign forms of democracy?
Or you mean democracy of American colonies?

Don't be daft.  It's not my choice of words.  This is the term that Putin himself has used to describe his "style" of government.  Google it, or just click this link:


I think Putin should call it fascism, but basically, "soverign democracy" sounds a lot better than Soviet or KGB-cronies-run-everything democracy.

Right now the lesser of two evils is Russia.

Nobody even comes close to the death, destruction, and misery the US has caused in the last 30 years.

Don't be daft.  It's not Putin choice of words.  This is the main axiom of democracy.
This is the term that Putin himself has used not to describe for his "style" of government, but for describe "style" real power of the people in Russia.

  Google it, or just click this link:

Because the concept of "democracy" means "government by the people."
But the concept of "American democracy" means "the power of the American people" over other nations.
Power of the people always is sovereign priori. Putin said that in Russia, we have "sovereign democracy". It means sovereign power by the people of Russia, but not U.S. power over the people of Russia.

I think, Obama should call power in USA as fascism, but basically, "not sovereign American democracy" sounds a lot better than neo-slavery or power one-party regime of the military-police dictatorship.

Meanwhile, at the UN, the majority of countries of the General Assembly voted with the US resolution to reject Crimea as anything but an integral part of Ukraine.

Look to RT News for details, but I recall about 100 voting for, about 57 ABSTAINING (including China), and about 17 staunch allies supporting Russia.

Clearly Simon Black's favorite bastion of liberty -- Chile -- did not oppose it.

I dunno how that would match up...many of these have hard combat experience..

Caucaus and ..Ukrainians were deep into South Ossetia/Georgia...some killed there, including at least one female Ukrainian Sniper with another possible. Ukraine supplied a lot of arms..Some of the video from Georgia shows them in their right sector types emblems on battle dress, banner, slogans etc

Besides, those of the "right guys" who couldn't skip school or were just too young to experience jihad alongsine Muzychko in Georgia/Chechnya, have in recent years catched up on their training at ZATO financed military camps in W. Ukraine and Poland.

The only thing that could possibly make this more fiting are snipers firing on them protesting next. Notice none of those sniper bullets took out any Neo Nazis or NATO mercenary assets during Euromaidan.

In a democratic free country people can protest in front of their Parliament.

In countries like Russia or USA (or USSA) - you get shot or jailed.
