Mykola Kapliy, General of Police: “I give three days to those in power.”

General of Police Mykola Kapliy, former head of the Interior Ministry in Cherkasy Oblast and Acting Chief of the Oblast Security Service of Ukraine, has stated that he will give the government and law enforcement bodies three days to reduce hostilities towards one another in the oblast. Otherwise, he states that will lead more than 10,000 people to the street–Afghanistan veterans, Chernobyl liquidators, soldiers, and former and current police officers.

“While I was abroad, several assaults of the Cherkasy Oblast branch of the State Department occurred. Upon my return, I learned that these events were, in fact, contrived provocations. Militia officers disclosed the whole scenario to me. In fact, honest people were framed by the provocateurs. I called General Lipandin, Cherkasy Police Chief, and offered to meet; he was outright rude, but I lost my temper as well. Therefore I gave Valeriy Chernyak, the Head of the Oblast Council, three days to arrange a meeting with Lipandin in order to discuss these matters face-to-face. I know the name of the person in the government who organized the assault. The same scenario was carried out in Donetsk, where the government staged an attack led by eurointegrators at a peaceful meeting. In reality, it was a fighting between two well-organized groups of titushkiy [hired thugs named after Vadym Titushko]. In Cherkasy, one group was located within the State Department building while a second group attacked from outside. Lipandin must be stopped and the illegal arrests must be put to an end. Of course, all political prisoners in Cherkasy must be released.

EuroMaidan self-defense groups say they repelled a potential attack by a group of up to 2,000 people who advanced on barricades near the protester-occupied Kyiv City Hall about noon, but then hastily retreated after a strong show of force from the anti-government demonstrators.

A Kyiv Post journalist on the scene reported that at least 200 of the suspected “titushki,” the slang term for government-hired thugs, retreated by 1:30 p.m. to the Lva Tolstoho metro station and congregated near the McDonald’s restaurant near the metro entrance. The group was not armed…

Football ultras unite to defend civilian population

ultrasWhile the world was dazzled by flaring images of Ukraine’s central square, something far more unusual has been happening in the shadows (text and references prepared for interested international media).
A popular saying among protesters on Ukraine’s flaring main square these days is that to many people it actually feels the least dangerous place compared to other streets in the country. While grenades distract cameras, most attacks on the civilian population last week in fact took place on the quite streets of Kiev and in smaller demonstrations in other cities. The perpetrators, freshly labelled as “Titushkas”, are a new and bizarre type: organised groups of muscley young men, looking rather desperate and lumpenised, who admit to have been hired for about 20 Euro a day and equipped to smash cars, windows and people involved in the protests. The fact that police routinely observes “Titushka” attacks without intervening makes most people think that authorities are behind the organisation of these gangs. [Video attached: Police officer covers up one of the titushka helping him to hide his knife]. Continue reading
