Viktor Yanukovych’s notebook containing confidential instructions and unreported contacts with Russia reveals secrets on how the run-away president spent his last weeks in office.
The vote on January 16 for the “dictatorial laws” marked a turning point in events on Euromaidan. After Christmas and New Year holidays the protests began to diminish and many activists were busy trying to save their cars from arson. It seemed that the revolution was tapering off. But Yanukovych’s decision to adopt a package of anti-democratic laws at any cost changed the whole scenario. A peaceful protest was radicalized. Continue reading →
The Ukrainian revolution has given an amazing show to the people. The whole country is now looking at the everyday lives of its former leadership. Tours are being held at the residence of fugitive Yanukovych. The people have dubbed the huge mansion “The Museum of Corruption.” There’s certainly a lot to see in there. Following the best traditions of African dictators, both a garage with ancient cars and a huge zoo were found at Yanukovych’s place. Continue reading →

Die lieblingsbeschäftigung der Revolutionäre in Ukraine jetzt ist mit einer Kamera auf den Besitzen der geflüchteten Usurpatoren zu wandern. Zum Beispiel, das ist die persönliche Datscha des Flüchtling-Generalstaatsanwalts der Ukraine, des Doktors der Rechts Viktor Pawlowitsch Pschonka: an den Wänden hängen die Malereien der mittelalterlichen Meister und die Ikonen, in ganzem Haus stehen die Fabergé-Eier, es gibt eine Sammlung der blanken Waffen, Dutzende Porträts von Janukowitsch, und in dem Arbeitskabinett – die Reliquien der Heiligen…
The Prosecutor General’s office will request the strictest punishment for all those who were inciting people to violence, organizing and leading them. This has been announced on the webpage of the Prosecutor General’s office.
“Organizers of the riots will be held responsible for every injured person, every broken window and every burnt car,” said Prosecutor General Pshonka. He has also stressed that the truce has been violated. “For the sake of personal political interests all the negotiated agreements have been broken; lives and peace of millions of Kyivites have been put in danger.”
Pshonka emphasized that the leaders of the opposition should take responsibility for everything happening right now in the center of Kyiv. “They were the ones who announced the march who has now turned into an armed stand-off.” He also said that by now he knows of some hundred people that have been injured. In addition, he said that he is now convinced that only the government is interested in the peaceful resolution of the protests.”
