With all due respect to opinions and positions regarding the intensifying [civil war] raging in Ukraine our position at tgRevolution has always been the desire to present information which would not have in other words made it to your screen. In the spirit of diversifying the news stream and presenting a more balanced picture, we decided to translate videos which are circulating around the internet about the Ukrainian crisis that you may find rather shocking or with information you never knew. The reason for this is because we have made the assumption that granted you live in the West (America, Europe, Canada) you already have an overload of information about Ukraine which is colored in anti-Russian and pro-Revolution rhetoric and bias. Our goal is to even out the slate, as we have been doing and continue to do in an effort to provide you with hidden, denied or outright censored information.
What is important to understand is that we do not condone any violence which is taking place. And as many Americans believe alongside with us, we stand against American intervention in far away countries. We stand firm in our ideal of respecting other countries borders, in not policing the world, and in fixing our own problems here in the US.
With talk about sanctions and potential world wars beginning between the United States and Russia, it is important that the American people got to see the other side of the Ukrainian crisis, the one that won’t make it onto your TV screen.
The video will play first, and the translation to it will follow. In the case where there is nothing to translate, we will describe what the video is showing.
Bodies Falling From A Burning Building In Odessa:
This video happens to be graphic and disturbing altogether. It show’s anti-maidan activists falling from a burning building either to escape being burned alive or because they have lost conciseness. Although there is much speculation about who caused the fire, it is widely circulated and reported that members of the militant nationalistic group Right Sector were behind it (also, it appears from the video that people outside of the building were waiting with bats and sticks to finish them off). The most disturbing element here is that the fire was started to specifically burn the people inside, from which around 30-50 people have died, although there are no clear number. That will remain so considering no investigation will probably be established and no one will be prosecuted for this act of mass murder. Even sadder is the fact that the government in Kiev currently applauded this action as appropriate to cleanse the country of pro-Russian forces (more like killing any opposition which has risen against the revolutionary government).
Witness From Inside The Burning Building In Odessa:
“In total there were 116 casualties, guys, they were cutting people, finishing them off”
– What about gas?
“Not only with gas, different types of grenades, weapons, they were finishing off who they could, two guys got beat down with bats to death, that’s normal? That’s called a united country? A women was burned alive with her two children, information came out that on the second floor they were burned! ”
– Here, tell it to the camera!
“There are more than 116 dead, guys! Please tell me, your mass media, no excuse me, I will say this, your mass media called us terrorists?! When that Right Sector forced us on the roof, were throwing us around, yelling “death to the enemy”, death to who?? They yell Ukraine is united. Fu*ck this united Ukraine!”
-What is the chronology? Were there kids?
“Children were dying, women were dying, old men too. They finished off those trying to survive, just killing them, jumping on them. They were jumping on the corpses, guys, jumping on the corpses.”
– Where are the rest? There’s more of you?
“They are 6 kilometers from here, you’ll have to go pick them up.”
– Whats your name?
Citizens in Odessa Disrupt News Report From Pro-Kiev News Channel
(studio is talking about the story, something about separatists, in Ukrainian)
Lady in Red – “Don’t worry, we won’t touch you, just tell us which channel this is from?”
Reporter – (starting her report in Ukrainian) Good day….
Lady in Red – “Good day?….good day??” (accenting the fact that the reporter is speaking Ukrainian), that’s it, shut this thing down, close it down. You bit*hes, you set us up, you will never put us on our knees! Odessa will never be put on her knees!”
Reporter – Hands off!
Lady in Red – “In Kiev, Kiev has divided this country, you started this mess…..”
Lady in Red – “Get out of here scum, you divided Ukraine, you burned our boys alive!”
Former President of Ukraine Tymoshenko Say’s To Kill Russians In Ukraine
(From moment of audio recording)
Tymoshenko – “We need to take arms and shoot those Katsap’s (derogatory word for Russians)…I hope that I can connect my network, I’ll raise up the whole world as much as I can, just so that there was nothing left in Russia!”
Shufrich – “But what should we do with the 8 millions Russians who are left inside Ukraine today?”
Tymosheko – “Damn, just shoot them with a machine gun.”
The former president of Ukraine would see to it that ethnic Russians inside Ukraine would simply be shot and killed, all the while using derogatory slang terms when speaking about Russians. This is the beacon of democracy and freedom that the US supports? I’m not sure Americans would be happy to know that these type of people are leading the revolutionary government.
