Caught On Tape: Ukrainian National Guardsmen Shooting At Crowd In East Ukraine Referendum Town

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With the referendum vote largely concluded in most east Ukraine regions, it was virtually inevitable that the day would end without some provocation. And, as expected, moments ago CBS reported that "Ukrainian national guardsmen opened fire Sunday on a crowd outside a town hall in eastern Ukraine and an official for the region's insurgents said there were fatalities."

The details:

The bloodshed in the town of Krasnoarmeisk occurred hours after dozens of guardsmen shut down voting in a referendum on sovereignty for the region.

 

An Associated Press photographer who witnessed the shooting said two people were seen lying unmoving on the ground and insurgent leader Denis Pushilin was quoted by the ITAR-Tass news agency as saying there were an unspecified number of deaths.

 

Several hours earlier, guardsmen came to the town about 20 miles from the regional capital, Donetsk, and dispersed referendum voting that was taking place outside the town hall and they took control of the building. In the evening, more guardsmen arrived in a van and a scuffle broke out with people who were gathered around the building. Then the guardsmen fired shots.

And the incident caught on tape: the man in the blue sweater appears to be hit in the foot by a stray bullet fired by Ukrainian troops as the try to disperse the crowed in Krasnoarmeisk.

 

The incident from a different perspective.

 

And a third angle, showing the second person hit by stray assault rifle fire:

 

Finally, a compilation of what happened based on all available video clips:

Sad day.

Considering that the central authorities are resorting to untrained goons since the police and army can't be trusted to follow orders, should any one be shocked at this set of referendums?  For me, and I could be wrong, but these are the ultimate acts of no confidence in the Ukrainian political system.

Of course, the thugs that replaced the last set of thugs in Kiev were never about improving things but merely to take control and have their own payday.

So where did they get all those nice shiny new AK-47's?

Although the close up of the casing looked like it had been sitting around growing moldy for a number of years.

Ya know, when a brass casing is made it looks all shiny and new, after a few years of sitting around it develops a patina on the surface.

(Patina is a thin layer that forms on the surface of stone ; copper, bronze and similar metals (tarnish produced by oxidation or other chemical processes)

Pure Evil:   Russian ammo looks "moldy" cause it  is STEEL CASED and their military ammo uses "corrosive" Berdan (two hole) primers that last for centuries in a sealed steel "Spam can"

I say "corrosive" in quotes cause the primer residue is really just a salt that speeds rusting if not washed out with plain water (and forget the Windex)

And "nice shiny new AK-47s" were probably stored in some old salt mine packed in Cosmoline for the past 50 years ready to get up and go after a good cleaning.

And that's a horrible thing to do to unarmed civilians and those shooters must be charged with war crimes IMO. They're no different than the Nazis and prove Putin is right saying his concern is for the protection of ethnic Russians in Ukraine.

There are many non-letal weapons the Ukraine forces could use to disperse such crowds. An AK-47 firing 124 grain 7.62x39 bullets is not one on them!

Russian/Eastern Bloc ammo is typically steel cased (brass is too expensive).  It tends to be gray-blue or grey-green in color even when new.

Where did they get those shiney AKs?  Why on E Bay of course. Guy in Crimea who was in a balaclava said his fishing buddies all got together and got armored personnel carriers, VKS silenced sniper rifles, digital uniforms, rocket launchers, surface to air missiles from a site on E Bay located in Russia, Good prices and quick delivery.  A guy is working up a price for me on an Iskander missile.  Going to lob one of those on to a guy's boat who is stealing my fishing traps.

Yeah, kinda like the British infantry marching across No Man's Land while facing an angry horde of german machine gun bullets at the Battle of the Somme.

Other than the fact that they had the ability to fire back with their bolt action rifles.

That worked out real well.

(What I mean is, human bodies don't stand up well to rapid burts of high powered rounds exiting the ends of gun barrels.)

In the last video link you posted I could be wrong but it appeared to me that the one guy grabbed the barrel of the gun and yanked on it and it discharged.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLWGkVRh1MQ

 

Watch it and see what you think. This maybe an accidental discharge, not saying anyone was in the right or wrong. This is being reported as mercs firing randomly on unarmed civilians, all the other videos I have seen they are shooting over their heads, could this event start a war, or turn the tide of public opinion against one group? Sure it can, conflicts have started for less, look at the Hatfields and Macoys, all those people dead over a stolen pig...

America's heros spreading freedom and prosperity to these ungrateful people. Make no mistake, these gunmen are paid with our tax money and armed with our tax money. Obama and Nuland meet to plan more money for these gun men. Nuleand is covered in blood and so is Obama. That they can hire thug killers and then send then in to murder, while western media lies and cheers them on. Yes, this is what America has sunk to under Neo-Con rule. But this is nothing, unlike America's Al-Qaeda forces in Syria, these Ukrainian nazis have not yet begun to eat organs. That is coming soon. America now has white people shot down in  their own streets just like they used to do to brown people, but now they even kill whites. If you refuse to take ordes from Washington DC, you will be killed, some Americans already know that fact, now Ukrainian Federalists know it too.

The Noble Peace Prize winner is funding this killing.

In good old days they were killing the jew killers - all the way from Stalingrad to Berlin, liberating Auschwitz (from Ukrainian guards) as they went. BTW, this is pretty much what would they be doing in Ukraine today, too - if the hell break loose.

About the "girl band"... Well, desecrating an religious object is such a distasteful and chauvinist act (isn't religious freedom a cornerstone of democracy?) that being slapped in the face is both expected and deserved. Public reaction (and potential action of some insulted "member of public") wouldn't be any different if those misguided attention seeking idiots performed their "act" in St. Peter's or Notre Damme.

But, hipothetically (for the sake of this thought experiment), if you would give a loaded automatic weapon to a chimp and he starts spraying around and kill some people, it would be gun that kills people. A chimp without a gun is still rather dangerous and unpredictable beast, but way less leathal than with a gun.

Finally, to be absolutelly intelectually honest, in the thought experiment above the one who kills people is the one who gave a gun to a chimp. ;-)

The American  people really need to realize that a choice is coming whether they like it or not: They can wither away in poverty and misery with everyday a fight to just survive or fight to take back the county, the American country, from these treasonous criminals and murderers.

The choice is coming: Persecution or Revolution.

The Four Rs
Rejection: Quit paying, quit obeying, quit playing
Revolution: It is inevitable, so prepare, as they are.
Retribution: The guilty must answer for their crimes against the American people and the Constitution.
Restoration: Restore the Constitutional republic.

Waco The Big Lie.  A real eye opener to a somnabulistic people.

FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi was at both Waco and Ruby Ridge.  In fact he's the one who murdered Vicki Weaver.  And now he's collecting a pension; you pay psychopaths to murder you.

Horiuchi was busted for lying during testimony.  He was nonetheless acquitted.  Uncle Sam payed the survivors in an out-of-court settlement but admitted no wrongdoing.

Re Waco, a fellow sniper recanted his previous statements as to Horiuchi's actions in firing upon the Branch Davidians.

Meanwhile, the US seems happy with about a 50% turnout and that good old 51/49 victory.  So congrats on that 25% mandate and numerous other unelected powerbrokers... not even taking into consideration that everyone elected is also corrupt as shit and choices are determined ahead of time by a handful of people with vested interests.

I have to say ... the courage of the east Ukrainians (aka New Russians) is incredible and impressive, the way they just walk up to those Kiev gun-toting thugs and challenge them, and how they don't even flinch when the bullet fly.

By the same token, I had to think how a US cop would react if someone did that.  US cops wouldn't think twice about blowing off your head and, should you survive that, clubbing what's left of your life out of your body while their buddies laugh and taze your quivering corpse.

That's kinda of why I believe the whole thing was orchestrated.

Except of course the guy getting shot in the foot, which was probably unintentional.

The fact that the guy got shot and no one was running away, and then it seemed the thugs ran indoors so as to let other protestors help the shot guy, and the one running around the outskirts looked as if he was the director with his clipboard.

Maybe the Ukrainian Russians are starting to pump out their own propaganda or I'm getting too jaded.

Who knows.

The whole thing is beginning to look scripted.

If you ask me, both sides have agreed to split Ukraine up.

Everything else is Kabuki theater.

Yeah, real people are dying.

But, the only one's getting the shaft are the Ukrainian people.

Their nation is being destroyed. Just pawns in the great game.

It would be nice if both sides just left the Ukrainians alone.

But, the world just doesn't turn that way.

So the Kiev "authorities" just sat idly by, while the pro-Russian side cordoned off an entire building and the surrounding area to orchestrate this in broad daylight?

yeah ok...

I had a talk the other day with a uniformed DC US gun and badge thug. I reminded him of his oath and of Article 3, Section 3. He puffed out his chest in defiance and asked what my point was. I told him that he and his family live amongst us. The shitty smirk on his face quickly faded from view.

 

"Remember, remember, the oath breakers."

Your lucky he didn't take that as a domestic terroristic threat and either abuse you or have you arrested.

Much less call in his thuggy friends and have you tased and beaten to a pulp.

Little Rock Nine

The Little Rock Nine were the nine African-American students involved in the desegregation of Little Rock Central High School. Their entrance into the school in 1957 sparked a nationwide crisis when Arkansas governor Orval Faubus, in defiance of a federal court order, called out the Arkansas National Guard to prevent the Nine from entering.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower responded by federalizing the National Guard and sending in units of the U.S. Army’s 101st Airborne Division to escort the Nine into the school on September 25, 1957. The military presence remained for the duration of the school year.

This is just the next move in Putin's plan, as he now has the legitimate will of the people.  Next he will get something in place to annex Eastern Ukraine, while the West sits back and watches.  The real game starts when the Russian Army moves in to protect the East Ukrainians - I expect the mercs to run, so it will be up to the Ukrainian military and these national guardsmen as to whether they surrender or get overrun.  I do not expect the NATO planes or troops to do anything, as Ukraine in not technically a NATO country.

I do not think "annex" is right term. Crimea removed themselves, and requested to "join" Russian Federation. Russia considered and allowed.

Annex more implies taking without rights of occupants.

Voting is an act of treason against the United States. Only the USA can decide where and when elections are held, everyone should know this. Clear the streets, the USA will inform you when it is time to vote for one of two hand picked candidates. Acts of the terrorist voting gangs in East Ukraine will not go unpunished. American patriots should stand with the free peoples of Kiev and arrest those trying to vote, after all, it is freedom we are talking about.

They can't help it, they are enjoying themselves too much... getting giddy and drunk on the power trip we are feeding them, and being pathological types, for them there really isn't any tomorrow, so live it up today... sort of like a frat house party paid for by your alumni.... older psychos drunk on that ole 'king of the world' routine. Of course, it will turn the people against them, those not pathologically oriented themselves... yet... here in the States, we've been under pathological training for quite some time... the 'dumbing down' routine, the acceptance of wrong as right... bizarro world in short... in which psychos rule the world, until they are no longer needed of course, but by then, the MC programs will be activated and the real party will start... enter Mother Nature stage south.
