French TV Airs Stinging 2014 Maidan Coup Documentary
by Stephen Lendman
Canal+ TV’s “Les Masques de la Revolution” (The Masks of Revolution) revealed facts US-installed Kiev putschists want suppressed. It aired on February 1, despite Ukraine’s efforts to block its broadcast.
Canal’s web site said journalist/documentary filmmaker Paul Moreira “strips the masks of modern-day Ukraine and carries out an investigation on the firing line of the new ‘Cold War’ between the East and the West.”
He discussed how US-backed Nazi-infested elements instigated deadly Maidan violence, a coup, ousting the democratically elected Yanukovych government, illegitimate putschists replacing it.
He also covered the Kiev-ordered May 2014 Odessa massacre, premeditated mass murder, using Nazi-infested Right Sector thugs.
Moreira’s hard-hitting documentary counters “the commonly accepted narrative,” he said. “I knew I was going to meet a strong opposition, would be accused of playing into the hands of Putin, of using elements of propaganda,” he explained.
“I didn’t expect to meet such denial, bordering on hysteria…I was called a ‘terrorist’ in the pay of the Russian secret services.”
Notorious neocon Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland (a Hillary Clinton appointee) orchestrated the Maidan coup - shamelessly calling it “peaceful protest(s) by ordinary Ukrainians.”
At the time, Sergey Lavrov cited hard evidence of fascist thugs’ responsibility for what happened. Former Estonian Foreign Minister Urman Paet was ignored, saying “there is now stronger and stronger understanding that behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovich, but it was somebody from the new coalition.”
“All the evidence shows” they were shooting police and nonviolent Maidan protesters.” Former Ukrainian Security Service head Aleksandr Yakimenko confirmed Paet's assessment. He blamed putschist official Andrey Parubiy, a Nazi Svoboda party leader.
“Shots came from the Philharmonic Hall,” Yakimenko explained. “Maidan Commandant Parubiy was responsible for this building.”
“Snipers and people with automatic weapons were ‘working’ from this building on February 20. They supported the assault on the Interior Ministry forces on the ground who were already demoralized and had, in fact, fled.”
“When the first wave of shootings ended, many have witnessed 20 people leaving the building.” They were carrying military-style bags used for sniper and assault rifles with optical sights.
Many witnesses saw them. Foreign elements may have been involved. Perhaps CIA operatives and US special forces.
What happened was well planned in advance. “These were the forces that carried out everything that they were told by their leadership - the United States,” Yakimenko stressed.
Maidan leaders practically lived at Washington's embassy, he explained. Parubiy controlled access to weapons used to oust the Yanukovych government violently.
Ukraine is an illegitimate Nazi-infested US vassal state, waging war on its own people, committing horrendous human and civil rights abuses, reviled by most Ukrainians.
Maybe a real people’s revolution Maidan 2.0 looms, restoring lost democratic rights, ending US-orchestrated terror war on Donbass, restoring good relations with Russia.
