Ukraine's "Anti-Terrorist" Operation Turns Deadly In Odessa - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

The earlier Ukraine "anti-terrorist" operation in Solvyansk has resulted in the death of at least 2 servicemen and now tensions are roiling in Odessa as the Ukraine government tries to live up to the IMF's demands or "fight or no money". Violent clashes have broken out at a pro-Ukraine rally in Odessa and at least one person is dead. As the live feed below shows, things are getting out of control fast. Ukraine's acting president adds:

  • *TURCHYNOV SAYS OPERATION PROGRESSING SLOWER THAN GOVT WANTED
  • *TURCHYNOV URGES SEPARATISTS TO LAY DOWN WEAPONS AND SURRENDER
  • *UKRAINE REBELS HIDING BEHIND HOSTAGES, CIVILIANS: TURCHYNOV

Ukrainian authorities have also banned Russian air companies from making flights to the eastern Ukrainian cities; and, perhaps ironically to some, Russia has called for an emergency UN meeting to discuss Ukraine's actions.

 

The initial operation started in Solvyansk...

  • UKRAINE'S ACTING PRESIDENT SAYS OPERATION IN EASTERN TOWN OF SLAVIANSK WAS COMPLICATED BY THE USE OF HUMAN SHIELDS, DID NOT PROGRESS AS QUICKLY AS HOPED FOR
  • UKRAINE'S ACTING PRESIDENT SAYS OPERATION IN SLAVIANSK CONTINUES, CALLS ON PRO-RUSSIAN SEPARATISTS TO LAY DOWN ARMS, FREE HOSTAGES
  • *SLOVYANSK REBELS SUFFERED `SIGNIFICANT' LOSSES: TURCHYNOV

 

Then they moved to Odessa:

  • *CLASHES BREAK OUT AT PRO-UKRAINIAN RALLY IN ODESSA
  • *ONE PERSON DEAD IN ODESSA CLASHES, HROMADSKE TV REPORTS

"There are at least 10 injured, have shrapnel wounds, there is a traumatic injury from a weapon. At the moment, both sides are building barricades in different areas of the city center, some of the streets has captured one side, some - other "

According to local media, the site of the collision are fifteen hundred aggressive young people, many of whom are armed. Gathered chanting: "Glory to Ukraine!", "Death to the enemies", "Moskal knives." In the course went firecrackers, smoke grenades, batons. Fighting used stones from the dismantled bridge, there were "Molotov cocktails". People continue to arrive.

With Molotov Cocktails flying...

And mass brawls:

And in case you werew wondering where the anti-terror operation will do next.. here is a threat assessment map of the south and east...

 

Russia has called for an emergency UN meeting:

  • *UN SECURITY COUNCIL UKRAINE MTG MAY HAPPEN LATER TODAY: GRANT
  • *UN SECURITY COUNCIL NOW DISCUSSING UKRAINE MEET TIMING: GRANT

 

As Ukraine bans Russian flights:

Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency stated on Friday that Ukranian aviation authorities have unilaterally banned Russian air companies from making flights to the eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Kharkiv starting from today, Russian news agency Itar-Tass reports.

MSM Media's Take on the Protests in Odessa;

Freedom hating terrorists threw hand grenades, bricks, and Molotov Cocktails at members of the Environmental & Green-Friendly "Richt Sector" organization today, as Right Sector protested for sustainable energy, Green Jobs, and universal health care for all.  Unfortunantly in the protests one member of the peace-loving "Right Sector" died after his bottle of Vodka exploded after it was hit with a rock thrown by the freedom-hating terrorist thugs.  In Ukraine, it is common among the moderate protestors to light bottles of vodka on fire in order to show solidary with the European Union and the IMF.  Our thoughts are with the deceased and their family, as well as to the rest of freedom fighters in Ukraine fighting the imperalist expansionism of the dictator Vladmir Putin and the Russian Federation.

MSNBC addendum;

Its rumored, although unconfirmed, that members of the Tea-Party and the domestic terrorist organization "the Libertarian movement" were behind the terrorists actions in Ukraine.

NotApplicable's picture

Well played. The only thing missing is the descriptor of "self-determination/democracy" in regards to the Right Sector.

Looks like an IMF “gang initiation”.

From the second video it appears as if the people are upset because they'd just been Cyprus'ed and were unable to withdraw any money from the ATM machine.

Once again the oligarchs are using police forces to protect their Bahkomat (or is it laundromat) from the lowly serfs wishing to withdraw their meager life savings.

So for a pomise of $17B that they will never be required to pay the deflated western economies will start WWlll...UFB!!!

You forgot to include gay and non-white ethnic communities taking to the street to protest repression...(there is a small minority of tartar heritage - that will have to do for painting the proper full picture)

I wanna see a joint team effort to get this story right , in time for the newscast!

Tom_333's picture

Sorry - I forgot the repressing forces are made up of crackers and home schoolers and the gay/lesbian/ethnic freedom fighters are clamoring for a strong state to push the right agendas. Ok - that should just about sum it up. No get going. And keep it simple. You know how the anchors are without simple talking points...

RT is reporting the following:

09:03 GMT:

English-speaking foreigners are participating in the “special operation” being carried out by the Ukrainian Army in the eastern city of Slavyansk, the head of the city’s self-defense force has told Russian news agency Ria Novosti.

 

“Self-defense troops using walkie-talkies have picked up English speech,” he told Ria, claiming this was “direct evidence of the participation of foreign citizens in the punitive operation being carried out in Slavyansk.”

---

Wonder where they obtained access to English speaking conscripts?

Wonder how a country in which an elite light infantry battalion, the 25th Airborne, was disbanded for its failure to fire on the democratic resistance?

Wonder is there is any connection between the putschists use of English speakers and the approval of the first tranche of the IMF loan: "Hello, Academi. Yes we have the money now to pay you."

Wonder is there is any connection to the fact that the conidiotns of the IMF loan included the requirement to attack the democratic resistance in Eastern Ukraine?

With any luck, these mercenaries will end their "tour of duty" hanging from a bridge.

Either that or they will mysteriously die in helicopter crashes.

 

Bridges would be better though.

As in a 'Dresden-like, Fallujah ambush'.

My few Russian sources say that if foreign mercenaries are caught taking part inside Ukraine's East, that their fate will be horrific. I mean really bad. People are not going to accept NATO and USA troops in their towns and cities. It will go really bad for the US Mercs. I hope the pay us taxpayers must pay them for their services to the NATO expansion is worth the risk.

If that is true, I hope they capture several of them, for interrogation and public display.

It would be a PR disaster for current "government" of Ukraine.

Nothing about Obamacare?

 

Pffffft.

It's amazing how the western MSM managed to make the people focus on that part, instead of the part that actually matters, and it even turned into something like a meme! Western propaganda is indeed powerful and well honed.

Well, that is actually old news really.

Things were going so well. The economy was finally fixed, the stawk market was hitting new highs and then WWIII broke out. Poor el presidente Zero can't catch a break.

my guess all well planned in advance with the goal fleencing whatever is left in peasants pockets

The reason for the Fed's emergency meeting?

Hows this-

"now tensions are roiling in Odessa as the Ukraine government tries to live up to the IMF's demands or "fight or no money""

They're already enslaved, but apparently, they dont even fucking realize it yet

Might be time to call Bill Paxton.

Forcing the Uranians to "make their bones" to get their membership in the Western Banking Cabal. About the crudest play in a century or so.

Right up their with Jacob Schiff putting it to the Czar and his family by funding the Bolsheviks-and don't think Putin doesn't understand that bit of history!!!

can't wait till Putin comes and kicks these ukrainians in the ass. 

Martin W's picture

Putin should better kick you in your empty head.

Martin:

 

Let me make this as simple as you are - If the West had not paid for this coup against the legitimately elected government of Ukraine, none of this would be happening.

-30-

Martin W's picture

Unfortunately what you say may be true. Brave young people who fought on the Maidan for pro-Western Ukraine did not anticipate that they will loose half of country for Russia....

The West made the same mistake.

 

Ps.

 

I am not simple, just can't stand someone says: “can't wait till Putin comes and kicks these ukrainians in the ass.” 

freeasabee1's picture

why, Might means right on this shit hole we call earth.

A new "hot" war, and western media remains silent.  Probably a good thing, considering how Siria turned out.

Kiev needs to deliver a civil war so they can get that IMF blood money.

Shouldn't we go in and burn some villages? We gotta save that place!

Again, their efforts will be just as successful as the Syrian rebels efforts were...

SoDamnMad's picture

Do it right. Open up with some of those 12.7 mm on those human shields. Might make them think twice (well they won't get a next time but someone else might).  Surface to air missiles in the hands of farmers. Yeah right.  If you are going to lose half your country either give Russian everything east of the Dnieper River but first blow the hell out of all those "locals" with the latest in Russian equipment.  One more thing, default on the Gazprom debt.

"Yats" is both an Israeli and an IMF banker. What more do we need to know about the Kiev coup government.

Leave it to the neocons to rip an innocent country apart. Reminds me of gordon gecko gutting bluestar airlines because they were so 'wreckable'

"but said Moscow would not respond with similar measures"

 

I wouldn't want to be anywhere in the neighborhood when Russia finally devides that it will respond.

They don't have to since it doesn't block any strategic purposes. They can still ship by boat into the region and protect the shipping lane quite easily. Bet the 'seperatists already control at least one key shipping port.
