A leaked telephone conversation reveals that the snipers who shot at protesters and police in Kiev leading to charges of criminality against the deposed Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych were hired by U.S.-backed opposition leaders.
The telephone call between Estonia Foreign Minister Urmas Paet and EU Foreign Affairs Chief Catherine Ashton was allegedly hacked by agents of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) loyal to Yanukovych and uploaded to the Internet. Paet has confirmed the call is authentic.
The U.S. propaganda media blamed the violence, which resulted in at least 94 deaths and 900 injuries, on Yanukovych. It served to incite U.S. opinion against the Russia-backed Yanukovych, who was forced to flee to Russia and has been charged with numerous crimes.
But Paet learned from a doctor the injuries being treated were made by the same weapons.
“There is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition,” said Paet.
In early February, senior U.S. State Department official Victoria Nuland was caught selecting the puppet Ukrainian opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk. According to Nuland, the U.S. has reportedly sunk $5 billion in the opposition in order to agitate for admittance to the EU.
