Divided Ukraine. Euromaidan activists VS pro-russian activists
Ukraine is divided.
Ukraine straddles the border between Europe and Russia, and its geography finds itself deeply embedded and deterministic of cultural identity. The east and south is predominantly “pro-Russia”, with the west trying to forge closer bonds with the European Union.



Euromaidan was the reason that sharply escalated the confrontation between the two parts of the country. According to a January poll, 45% of Ukrainians supported the protests, and 48% of Ukrainians disapproved of Euromaidan. The biggest support for the Euromaidan can be found in Kiev (about 75%) and western Ukraine (more than 80%) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euromaidan#Public_opinion_about_Euromaidan.

So since then there are two sides: Euromaidan activists and Pro-russian activists.

First of all here we show Euromaidan movement.

About Euromaidan and new goverment of Ukraine.

Need to say that of course behind the radicals stand usual regular people. You probably all saw this nice people and their beautiful pictures. They aren't radicals or something, they support ideas of ukrainian nationalism and integration with Europenian Union.

This is how Western media showed Euromaidan




And it is true, a lot of good people  support Euromaidan (look statistic).

But they support ideas of ukrainian nationalism, integration with Europenian Union, distancing from Russia, the primacy of the Ukrainian language, participation in NATO. These are the key points that separate people in Ukraine in two parts.

And the main roles belong not to them. Euromaidan leaders have a much more strict course and they are ruling Ukraine today and are in a new goverment, that has legilised radicals armed groups. Final push and driver  for splitting Ukraine were the radical forces, which came to leadership and took real power by Euromaidan revolution.

The most active Euromaidan activists is  such party that "Right sector" that has friends- Chechnya terrorists + Syria terrorists + Georgian army. Also parties "Svoboda", "UNA-UNSO" and others radical groups. Also Party Svoboda, in English - Party of Freedom. It is official far-right party in Ukraine. Since Maidan they became very radical group.

They are all under idea of Bandera. The Banderas, or Banderites, are activists in the Ukrainian Ultra Nationalist movement that is now in control of the government in Ukraine. Under the militant leadership of Stepan Bandera in World War II, the ultra-nationalists organized the Ukrainian Waffen SS Galician, Nichtengall, and Roland Divisions that collaborated with the Nazis and were responsible for the genocide of over 500,000 people. Following the war, however, Ukrainian Nazis were the only group to escape trial at Nuremburg for crimes against humanity. Moreover, neither the Banderas, the Ukrainian Waffen SS, nor any other Ukrainian collaborators have ever apologized for their participation in genocide.

“What is clear,” wrote Anton Shekhovtsov on 3 December, ”is that the hardcore of the violent crowd was not the titushki [provocateurs], but right-wing extremists and far right football hooligans. Almost all of them wore masks and yellow armbands with the wolf’s hook symbol; and were clearly battle-equipped.”

Shekhovtsov pointed out that the black wolf’s hook on yellow armbands indicated their political affiliation: the Social-National Assembly (SNA), a neo-Nazi organization. In addition to the SNA, the violent extremists likely included members of ‘Tryzub’ (Trident) and ‘Bily Molot’ (White Hammer).

One of the Euromaidan leaders Tyahnibok is ukrainian nationalist who advocates the extermination of both Russian language and Russian-speaking people as a nation. A man who makes his "declaration" with the country's central TV channels.

Writing on the "Svoboda" official forum in 2010 is a man alleged to be Tyagnibok himself, posting under a pseudonym - “To create a truly Ukrainian Ukraine in the cities of the East and South, only one lustration will not be enough, we will need to cancel parliamentarism, ban all political parties, nationalize the entire industry, all media, prohibit the importation of any literature to Ukraine from Russia…. completely replace the leaders of the civil service, education management, military (especially in the East), physically liquidate all Russian-speaking intellectuals and all Ukrainophobes (fast, without a trial shot. Registering Ukrainophobes can be done here by any member of Svoboda), execute all members of the anti-Ukrainian political parties…”

Politicians from Svoboda, an ultra-nationalist party with ugly neofascist tendencies, got important jobs, including deputy prime minister and chief of national security

Organization " Right sector", which stands for " the purity of the nation" , has radicalized youth squads, has more than 1,500 firearms and promises to suppress any separatist manifestations

In an OpEd in the LA Times, entitled “Ukraine’s Threat from Within,” Director of the School of International Relations at USC Robert English very concisely warns that “the way Ukrainian Ultra Nationalists whitewash Bandera history, which is their past, makes the present and future all that much more scary.”

It is enough to see what the Maidan protesters write in their blogs, including official blogs. Some comments are extremely Russophobic, especially those written after the coup, and those who helped it happen began to believe that they can do anything now.


The fact that acceptance of right-wing extremists was not a contribution to national reconciliation in the government, was recognized in the Russian-speaking regions of Ukraine faster than in Western foreign ministries

The matter of fact is that in Ukraine (especially Western) for decades the youth was taught that Stepan Bandera was a hero.

The Maidan protest became a magnet for the discontented of every ilk: nationalists, anti-communists, radical environmentalists, soccer hooligans and anarchists.

Euromaidan activists attack peaceful civilians

And today these radical groups are legilised by new euromaidan goverment.
Ukraine has established a National Guard which will be comprised of former and current Ukrainian troops and volunteers from Maidan self-defense squads. So people who yesterday was involved in crimes today will be new police. The creation of Ukraine’s National Guard – the custodian of the coup-imposed government – has raised concerns that it may later be deployed to eastern regions of Ukraine to suppress the population increasingly standing up against Kiev.
This is an National Guard's emblem

Euromaidan activists beat a pro-russian activist

Here is the proof confirming that the attackers were representatives of the Right Sector - group that today is part of official National Guard.


How new Euromaidan goverment take a power in cities. Representatives of the Right Sector, known as "Sashko Bily", came to the meeting of the Rivne Regional Council with a Kalashnikov.
"Right sector has weapons, and will has"

Right sector - from now legally recognized party thanks to Euromaidan

BBC News - Ukraine: The far-right groups patrolling Kiev

Terrorist Activities of "peaceful" Euromaidan demonstrators

Genadiy Vlasof, member of Russian Block Group: "The new authority in Kiev includes — not all of them, but some — people who were wearing masks and shouting, 'Moskals on the knife!' on the square, who fueled national anger, who are enemies of every Russian-speaking person on Ukrainian territory, who are realistically capable of using force to kill people living in south-southeastern Ukraine."


Here are much more videos from eyewitness showing Euromaidan agression, chaos, tyranny and euromaiadan activists' banditry. The most scary is that video like this appear every day, from all parts of country.

Euromaidan activists burned a bus with pro-Russian activists

If you deny the existence of Euromaidan radicalists, which are an ultra-nationalist movement with armed militants and a radical nationalist party backed by two millions voters, watch this:

Some videos where Euromaidan activists shout slogans: "Those who do not jump are Moskals!", "One nation! One language! One Ukraine!" "Moskals on a gibbet!", "Moskals on knives!", "Commies on a gibbet!", "Hail to Ukraine! Hail to heroes!", etc.
"Moskal" is pejorative term for Russians.

Did you hear they are scanding "moskals on the knives"? You've understood it's slogan to kill russians

Ukraine's nationalist Freedom Party has downplayed its strong showing in the country's parliamentary elections.

Photos of Ukrainian nationalists and Euromaidan activists.


Mob law in Euromaidan style.

In Ukrainian media is no freedom of speech, they explain it "danger situation". It's not allowed to be other points of view than to praise the superiority of the euromaidan and the new government of Ukraine.
Here is a video where the head of the National Television Company of Ukraine (NTU) has been beaten by members of the nationalist Svoboda party and forced to write a letter of resignation over allegations that his channel aired anti-Ukrainian content.

Party "Svoboda" is today one of the leading representatives of the new government in Ukraine.


Remind you that before one journalist was killed for his criticism about Euromaidan.

Open poll on social network in ukrainian group showed that 20 462 out 21 544 doesn't consider Ukrainian media independent press (In their praising Euromaidan activists and blackening pro-Russian activists under new goverment)

Euromaidan revolution enabled radical groups to do as they please in Ukraine. And they get support from the "progressive" and "liberal" media in the West.

The very first law new euromaidan's goverment tried to install was eliminating Russian as an official language. Wit all the anti-"moskal" (Moskals [Ukrainian pejorative term for Russians]) rethoric it does make one worry for the safety of Russians, doesn't it?

Since Euromaidan and ukrainian revolution all ukrainian media has to show one sided version of news. The problem is that the western propaganda is massively on Euromaidan side. For example one finnish journalist was fired his talk show closed after leading an interview about the situation in Ukraine where he criticized new maidan goverment.

Some examples of lies from ukrainian and western media:

Post, exposing the lies of Ukrainian media about referendum in Crimea.




People want to believe in what benefits them most. Especially when it is rallying support for a common goal.

Who sponsored Euromaidan?

1) Arseniy Yatsenyuk Foundation
Official partners:
U.S. Department of State
NATO Information and Documentation Centre
Polish embassy in Kiev
National Endowment for Democracy (U.S.)
Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation (Germany)
Chatham House (U.K.)
Horizon Capital

And also Pinchuk Foundation which has even more hilarious partners such as Clinton Global Initiative

2) Obama sends Nuland and Pyatt and $5 Billion dollars to fund Ukrainian organizations, they have a huge support. Nuland in interview said that they also funding Ukrainian media and tv. There are political interests, big money, so is it logical that they will show one sided version of news.

3) Ukrainian oligarchs, who with the help of the Ukrainian revolution and Euromaidan were appointed to regional governors


4) Also Euromaidan activists wrote in their official account that created a special group to work on internet and spreading their ideas (look screenshot). It is unclear whether they work for idea or money.


Okay, now we look at other side of conflict.

Pro-russian meetings and protests. Russian spring in Ukraine
Thousands of pro-Russian demonstrators across eastern Ukraine and Crimea are protesting against the new government and Euromaidan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Spring https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antimaidan

People in Ukaine calling for Russia, thousands of them go to meetings and protests. I wonder if world community clearly support only one side and one half of Ukraine, then what they want to do with other side? Send UN and Ukrainian army to kill ukrainian citizens? Because they are going to fight for their choice.

Public poll showed 68.9% of the 74,438 respondents believe that Russia should support the desire for independence of Crimea.
Public poll showed that 76.0% of the 65,246 respondents believe that the situation in Ukraine threatens Russia's security (before the crisis in the Crimea)

Public poll of ukrainian group in social network showed that 29807 (both ukrainians and russians) out of 41104 approve pro-russian rallies


Polling by the Razumkov Centre in 2008 found that a majority of Crimeans would like Crimea to secede from Ukraine and join Russia (63.8%). Razumkov characterized Crimeans' views as confused, unsteady, and sometimes contradictory and therefore vulnerable to internal and external influences.
In the days leading up to the referendum, one poll conducted by the German GfK Group found that 70% of Crimeans who intended to participate in the referendum planned to vote to join Russia, while 11% planned to vote to remain part of Ukraine
In preparation for the marathon TSN "United Ukraine" channel "1 +1" conducted a survey for  Ukrainian citizens.
According to the survey, 88% of  Crimean population consider Russia a friendly country, and 76% - support Putin's policy towards Ukraine.

The German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel (Daily Mirror) launched an online survey, asking its readers how the West should react with regard to Russia’s actions into Ukraine.
14027  out of 16965 answered: "Western censure is hypocritical, since Russia defends legitimate interests."

Today in Ukraine also (and especially in Crimea) are acting pro-Russian militias. They are organizing and creating in units by themselves (watch video). There are many former military, athletes, retired Berkut (police forces), students and regular people that help them by food, donations and others help.
They all - are Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine. Any uniform can be easily purchased on the Internet, to get guns for knowledgeable people is not a problem in Ukraine.
Crimean militants are acting independently, so Russia cannot control their actions and have not direct connection with them, so Russia is not responsible for what they do.
All these guys are on internet, you can talk with them, they post their pictures and tell a lot of things. These are the similar guys that was on the Maidan, but stand for a different idea.

South and East of Ukraine is different, if the ukrainian army or NATO soldiers will go into that region, they would meet a dedicated resistance, fighting guerilla style.


Former Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev gave Crimea to Ukraine in 1954. Under the USSR, which it was assumed would last forever, it didn't matter whether the administration of Crimea was from Kiev or Moscow - it was in effect the same country.
At the time, no one thought the Soviet Union would collapse. It did. And Crimea was handed over "like a sack of potatoes"
In the Crimea, the Ukrainian government has always been considered as occupiers , so relevant to what is happening this is that the release of a Ukrainian occupation

A historic injustice has been righted, which resulted from the arbitrary actions of the leader of the U.S.S.R. at the time, Nikita Khrushchev, who, with the stroke of a pen in 1954, in violation of the constitutional norms, transferred the Russian region of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, which was part of the same state then. And he did this without informing the population of Crimea and, of course, without their consent. And nobody cared about the views of the Crimeans.

It was only given to the Ukraine when the two countries were one nation (USSR). The breakup of that nation has it's consequences, and perhaps the return of Crimea to Russia is one of them. Most of the people are Russian. And the naval base there is of vital importance to Russia's national defense. It would be like the US giving up the naval base in San Diego to Mexico, if Russia were to let that base go

This is not the first year crimeans are struggling with Ukrainian authority. You'd be surprised but those "20 years" are actually there:

First, the referendum of 1991 when they've chosen to restore the autonomy and to remain as part of the Soviet Union. In 1992 Kiev declared a moratorium on such referendums in Crimea considering its status. Later in '94/'95 Kiev seized their constitution and the right to have their own president. As a consequence, there would be another referendum in 1995, but Kiev made some concessions.

In 1998 they would start a referendum on status of the Russian language, but there were inner disputes in the Crimean parliament. Because of anti-Russian policy of Yushenko the parliament have tried a referendum on the Russian language in 2006 too, but Kiev forbad it. Later that year, the people of Crimea initiated a referendum without the authorities and voted against entry to NATO.
Crimeans were not allowed to organize secession on their own, they would do it if they could. Separatist pro-Russian sentiments in the region have always been strong

As an ethnic Russian in Crimea stated ‘It’s our land. It’s in our blood. Ukraine doesn’t let us breathe‘. Of Crimea’s 2 million, 60% are ethnic Russians, even the 25% Ukrainians there are perhaps the most pro-Russian Ukrainians you’ll find. The only opposition there is the 12% Tatar population, pro-Euromaidan from the start.

Here's the Russian position in a nutshell: The current government in Ukraine is in power in violation of the Ukrainian Constitution. So the Constitution isn't valid, and the first thing the new government did was disband the Constitutional Court because they know this. As such, Crimea has declared independence under the international law. Russia refused to negotiate with the un-constitutional government of Ukraine: "there's no one to talk to", they said.

True, Russia has behaved provocatively throughout, manipulating fears, stoking tensions, manoeuvring for strategic advantage. Same as the West, same as ever. When it comes to double-talk, however, there is no contest

There are up to 25,000 of Russian troops can be based in Crimea at ANY time! Now, there are about 9,000 of them. Russia has a legitimate agreement with Ukraine about Russian troops in Crimea. Link to official ukrainian goverment site http://zakon2.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/643_076
Obviously, not all people knew and know about this, so it is easy to misunderstand stuff and blame Russia for "invasion".
Many consciously write about Russian soldiers, setting the stage for misleading when in fact many of the actions were made by pro-Russian militias. That is, citizens of Ukraine - crimeans

The representatives of the international organizations were invited to the referendum in Crimea. They did not come to reserve a possibility to say that the referendum result was fixed.
A lot of internetaional journalists and watchers admitted that referendum was in normal environment, people looked happy, there was no any military, voting was free and clear. Everyone said that the election was fair, they was widely covered by CNN, bbc and others. None of the Western leaders who have been blustering about “making Putin pay” has challenged the reliability of the outcome as a measure of majority feeling in the region.

Crimeans confirm that the referendum was okay

Celebrating reunion with Russia in Simferopol (Crimea)

There were 135 independent observers from 23 countries in Crimea to monitor the referendum vote: Mateus Piskorkski, the leader of the European observers’ mission and Polish MP: “Our observers have not registered any violations of voting rules.” Ewald Stadler, member of the European Parliament, dispelled the “referendum at gunpoint” myth: “I haven’t seen anything even resembling pressure… People themselves want to have their say.” Pavel Chernev: Bulgarian member of parliament: “Organization and procedures are 100 percent in line with the European standards,” he added. Johann Gudenus, member of the Vienna Municipal Council: “Our opinion is – if people want to decide their future, they should have the right to do that and the international community should respect that. There is a goal of people in Crimea to vote about their own future. Of course, Kiev is not happy about that, but still they have to accept and to respect the vote of people in Crimea”. Serbian observer Milenko Baborats “People freely expressed their will in the most democratic way, wherever we were… During the day we didn’t see a single serious violation of legitimacy of the process"

Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev hailed Crimea’s vote to join Russia as a “happy event”. He approved returning Crimea to home.

And you need understand that Crimea went to Russia in response to what happened in Kiev, the political consequences of staying with Ukraine would've been catastrophic for Crimea, other regions know this and are trying to get referendums too. Euromaidan was catastrophic in the country where is so instable situation. Sentiment of separatism has always been there and now they are growning. It is pity that western leaders didn't consider this when praised and encouraged "peaceful demonstrants" in Kiev.

Clashes between euromaidan activits and pro-russian activists.

Since the end of February 2014, demonstrations by pro-Russian and anti-government groups have taken place in major cities across the south-eastern regions of Ukraine, in the aftermath of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution and the Euromaidan movement.
Beginning on 1 March, several governors' offices (RSA's) in various Eastern Ukrainian oblasts (provinces) were briefly occupied by pro-Russian activists. By 11 March all occupations had ended, after units of the local police and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) re-took the buildings
In Donetsk, protests have descended into violence on multiple occasions, including on 13 March where one pro-Kiev protester was stabbed to death. In Kharkiv, Right Sector militants shot dead two pro-Russian protesters on the night of 15 March.
On 1 March 2014, the council of Luhansk Oblast, Ukraine's easternmost region, voted to demand giving Russian language the status of second official language, stop ″persecution of Berkut fighters″, disarm Maidan self-defense units and ban a number political organizations like Svoboda and UNA-UNSO. It threatened the Ukrainian central authorities that it reserved the right to ask for help from the brotherly people of the Russian Federation".
Fresh clashes broke out between pro-unity demonstrators and pro-Russia activists in the eastern town of Donetsk, Ukraine.

All information is taken from witnesses, participants, Western media, Ukrainian sources, YouTube, Wikipedia, independent observers. (Note: there is no single source from russian media in case you want accuse in russian propaganda).

P.S. Sorry for my poor english
