(With English subtitles) Italian investigative journalist Gian Micalessin interviews three snipers who shot the people in Maidan square. They were Georgians sent to Ukraine by security services people aligned with American allied-educated Mikhail Saakashvili. American mercenary Brian Christopher Boyenger ran the sniper operation on location. Expanded translation of the Italian (the video subtitles are abridged) below the video

 

transcript of parts one and two:

What the hell? Who is shooting? Somebody got shot! I can’t believe it happened right here! A man standing right next to me just got shot!

It was at dawn, I heard sounds of gunshots as bullets were flying. Somebody got shot in the head by a sniper.

We were ordered to shoot at the police and protestors randomly.

Which location were the shots fired [from]? From the Ukraine Hotel?

The shooting was from the Ukraine Hotel.

Kyiv, February 2014. It is three months the Maidan square, in the heart of the capital, has been filled with protestors; who’ve been demanding the government and president, Victor Yanukovych, to sign an association agreement with the European Union.

On February 18th the clashes have become bloody, with about 30 casualties. The worst moment will be in the morning of February 20th. A group of unknown snipers began firing at protestors and police. In a short period of time up to 80 dead were counted.

The next day [February 21st, president] Yanukovych leaves the country. On February 22nd the opposition seizes power.

But who was shooting at the crowd and opposition?

To this very day, the official version from Kiev is the slaughter was conducted by the order of the Kremlin-backed [Yanukovych] government. This version seemed suspicious to many. The Foreign Minister of Estonia, Ermas Paet, was the first one to dispute this.

Returning from a trip to Kiev only 5 days after the massacre, [Paet] reported in a phone call to EU Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton, revelations from a Ukrainian doctor who examined the cadavers of Maidan square. The intercepted phone call, published widely by the Russian media, is disconcerting.

“The most disturbing thing [Paet explains] is that all of the evidence points to the people killed by snipers, both police and people in the street, were killed by the same snipers.”

Speaking with a clearly embarrassed Ashton, the foreign minister cites the testimony of the Ukrainian doctor:

“She speaks as a doctor, and says it is the same signature, the same kind of bullets. It is really disturbing that now the new coalition [Paet reaffirms] refuses to investigate what is really going on. There is a very strong conviction that they’re are behind the snipers … That it is not Yanukovych, but some of the new coalition…”

After four years from the beginning at November 2013 of Maidan demonstrations, we are able to tell another truth, completely different from the official story. Our story begins towards the end of summer 2017, in Skopye, the capital of Macedonia. There, after long and complex negotiations, we met with Koba Nergadze and Kvarateskelia Zalogy, two Georgian participants and witnesses in the tragic shootings and massacre.

Both Nergadze and Zalogy are linked to former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili , who started, in August 2008, a short but bloody war with Russia’s Vladimir Putin. Nergadze, as proved by an identification card he holds, was a member of a security service at President Saakashvili’s order. Zalogy is a former Saakashvili party activist.

“I decided to come to Skopije to tell you everything we know, about what happened … and I and my friend have decided together, we need to shed some light on those facts,” Nergadze says.

Nargadze also says Alexander Revazishvilli, [we met] a few months later, a former sniper of the Georgian army, participated in the Maidan shootout. [We] met in another Eastern European country.

All three of our participants say that they were recruited at the end of 2013 by Mamuka Mamulashvili, a Saakashvili military advisor who, after the Maidan action, will move to the Donbass, to lead the so-called Georgian Legion in clashes with ethnic Russian insurgents.

“The first meeting was with Mamulashvili [was] at the office of the National Movement,” Zalogy said. “The Ukrainian uprising in 2013 was similar to the” Pink Revolution “that took place in Georgia years before. We had to direct and guide it using the same pattern used for the “Pink Revolution”

Alexander’s version is no different. “Mamuka first asked me if I was really a trained sniper, Alexander recalls, [then] he immediately told me he needed me in Kiev to pick some places.”

Our informants integrated to various groups of volunteers between November 2013 and January 2014, [after] receiving passports with false names, and money advances.

“We left on January 15, and on the plane, Zalogy remembers, I received my passport and another [passport] with my photo but with different name and surname. Then they gave us each a thousand dollars to begin, promising to give another five thousand more“

Once in Kiev, our three participants begin to understand better why they were recruited. “Our task, Alexander explains, was to arrange provocations to push the police to charge the crowd. Until the middle of February, however, there were not many weapons around. The Molotovs, the shields and the sticks were used to the maximum.”

But in mid-February, clashes around Maidan begin to get worse. “About 15 and 16 February,” Nergadze remembers, “the situation has begun to become more serious every day. It was out of control now. And in the meantime, the first shoots were heard. “With the rising of tensions, new players [would] come into play”

“One day around February 15, remembers Alexander, Mamualashvili personally visited our tent. There was another guy in his uniform with him. He introduced him and told us he was an instructor, an American soldier.” The US military veteran Brian Christopher Boyenger, is a former officer and sniper for the 101st Airborne Division. After Maidan, [Boyenger] moves on to the Donbass front, where he will fight in the ranks of the Georgian Legion alongside Mamulashvili.

“We were always in touch with this Bryan, Nergadze explains, he was a Mamulashvili man. It was he who gave us the orders. I had to follow all his instructions“

The first suspects in the possession of firearms among the ranks of demonstrators, involve Serghey Pashinsky, a leader of Maidan Square, who became, after the fall of Yanukovych, chairman of the Kiev parliament.

On February 18, in a video made that day, a rifle locked in a car was recorded with video taken by a demonstrator, showing an automatic rifle. A few seconds after, Pashinsky approaches and orders the car be allowed to go. The next day, weapons were distributed to groups of Georgian and Lithuanian mercenaries residing in Hotel Ukraine, the hotel overlooking the square used as a headquarters by opposition.

“In those days, Pashinsky and three other people, including Parasyuk, had taken the weapons handbags to the hotel. They were going to get them into my room,” Nergadze says.

Volodymyr Parasyuk is one of the leaders of the Maidan Square protest. After the massacre of demonstrators, he will become famous for an ultimatum in which he will threaten to use weapons to hunt President Viktor Yanukovych.

“On February 18, recalls Zalogy, someone took some weapons to my room. In the room with me there were two Lithuanians, the weapons were unpacked by them.”

“In each bag, recalls Nergadze, there were Makarov’s pistols, Akm automatics, carbines. And there were packages of cartridges. When I first saw them I did not understand …. When Mamulashvili arrived, I also asked him. “What’s going on,” I told him, “what are these weapons? Is everything all right?

“Koba, things are getting complicated, we have to start shooting,” he replied, “we can not go to the pre-election presidential elections …” “But who should we shoot? And where? “I asked him.” He replied that where he did not care, we had to shoot somewhere … to sow some chaos.“

“While Nergadze and Zalogy assisted in arms distribution at the hotel, Alexander Revazishvilli and other volunteers went to the Conservatory, another building overlooking the square. “It was February 16th … Pashinsky ordered us to collect our belongings and bring them in … Other people arrived, they were almost all masked.

“From their cases I understood … they carried weapons …. They pulled them out and handed them over to the various groups. Only Pashinsky was talking … “He was giving orders. He asked me where we were supposed to shoot. ” “In the meantime, explained Nergadze, even at the Ukraine hotel, the leaders of the revolt underlined the purpose of using the weapons.

“They explained to us to shoot to create chaos and confusion. We did not have to stop. It did not matter if we fired at a tree, a barricade, or a molotov. The important thing was to sow chaos. ”

On the 20th, in the morning, the plan came into action. “It was supposed to be dawn,” Zalogy remembers, “when I heard the sound of the shots … they were not bursts, they were single strokes … came from the next room. At that same time, the Lithuanians opened the window. One of them fired one shot while the other closed the window. They have fired three or four times everywhere.”

Alexander, admitting he was involved in the shootout from the Conservatory building, claims to have understood very little. “Everyone started shooting two or three shots at a time. We did not have much choice. We were ordered to shoot both the Berkut, the police, and the demonstrators, no matter what. I was totally outraged. It went on for fifteen minutes … maybe twenty. I was out of my mind, agitated, under stress, I did not understand anything. Then suddenly, after 15, 20 minutes the shooting ceased and everyone has put down the weapons. ”

As wounded and dead arrived in the Ukrainian Hotel’s reception, the snipers fled from the rooms. And so the victims found themselves next to their assassins.

“Inside, recalls Nergadze, “there was chaos, you did not understand who was who. People ran back and forth. Someone was hurt … someone was armed. Outside was even worse. There were so many injured in the streets. And the many dead.”

Alexander says he left in a hurry. “Someone was shouting that there were snipers, I knew what they were talking about,” he said, “my only thought was to disappear before they knew about me. Otherwise, they had me. At that time, however, I did not realize, but now I understand. I do understand. We’ve been used. Used and discarded.”

“Ambassador Victoria Nuland assumed her position as Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs on September 18, 2013. As Assistant Secretary she is responsible for diplomatic relations with 50 countries in Europe and Eurasia, as well as with NATO, the European Union and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Previously, Ambassador Nuland served as State Department Spokesperson” –Department of State’s Nuland bio, 23 April 2015

What is well known is, the Department of State and the CIA have always been Siamese twins. What is less known is, the American military officer corps has long rivaled (and these days surpasses) the Department of State as cover for CIA officers. What is interesting about this just now is, is a shuffle between the Pentagon, Department of State and the White House. Jen Psaki goes to the White House to become Communications Director, recently released Department of Defense Spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby moves over to the Department of State and former CIA spokeswoman Marie Harf will no doubt stay on at Department of State to get John Kirby’s feet on the ground and cover Iran.

Why this is interesting is the portrait it paints insofar as information management, and who plays where in the executive branch. Noting Victoria Nuland’s former employ as Department of State spokeswoman prior to her becoming the USA’s information engineering front for the Maidan coup in Ukraine, and noting Jen Psaki’s role at State and seeing John Kirby move into her role, let’s look at the sum of this in the context of Marie Harf:

“During the 2012 election, Ms. Harf was responsible for all national security and foreign policy issues on President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. In this role, Ms. Harf developed and implemented the campaign’s national security policy and communications strategy, and she served as a press spokesperson on national security issues. Ms. Harf was also a member of President Obama’s debate preparation team for the Town Hall and Foreign Policy debates.

“Prior to joining President Obama’s re-election campaign, Ms. Harf was the Central Intelligence Agency’s Media Spokesperson. She crafted the CIA’s media strategy on a wide range of sensitive national security and intelligence topics.

“Ms. Harf began her federal government career in the CIA’s Directorate of Intelligence, where she was an analyst on Middle East leadership issues. She produced finished intelligence products — including items for the President’s Daily Brief — on top foreign policy priorities, providing insight and context while identifying risks and opportunities for the United States” -Department of State Harf bio, 23 April 2015

As well, noting Jen Psaki worked on both Obama’s election campaigns, and all of the named personalities are bald, professional liars (it helps they all profile as sociopaths) managing geopolitical myths in highly engineered media campaign environment, what stands out is, excepting Obama, all have worked in the role of Department of State spokesperson.

Nuland’s geopolitical myth engineering for the tv cameras from the Maidan in Kiev coupled to her leaked (intercepted phone) conversation dictating the precise formation of the incoming coup d’état government coupled to the revelation the Maidan snipers were a CIA false flag operation hosted by Poland, gives us some insights as to the career path track the Department of State spokesperson position points to. In the larger context, the personalities, all of them, profile as highly trained CIA operatives under cover of information professionals, but that is to say an ‘open’ cover where they are actually working in the field of their expertise as information specialists; however geopolitical engineering via information operations or ‘psyops.’ Only it’s called ‘spokesperson.’

The problem with this is obvious; these are not psyops aimed at enemy states but rather are aimed at the western press and the American people particularly. Victoria Nuland in a lead thespian role at the center of a coup d’état based on a CIA false flag operation, with Jen Psaki, Marie Harf and John Kirby all playing coordinated, supporting roles in an information operation aimed at the American people to convince them of the rightness of engaging Russia in related hostilities, is seriously anti-democratic. It is also against the law and violates fundamental constitutional principles.

This brings us now to the boss at the top of the food chain. Barack Obama is not only exceedingly close to career CIA operative & Director John Brennan, he has large gaps in his disingenuous biography. There is little question his mother was an American intelligence officer. And there is little question he had been mentored, as a younger man, by CIA front companies or closely associated businesses. During his tenure as our national executive, Obama has empowered the United States intelligence apparatus like none before him. Insofar as profiling a professionally trained liar, Obama’s skill would appear sublime. None better have preceded him; with pulling  the wool over the eyes of the Black communities of America and Africa, combined. In the larger spectrum Obama has given up our citizens’ rights to a degree none other would dare and without real or serious or effective opposition within the American political community. Meanwhile, going to the intended outcome in Ukraine, Obama’s strategies mirror the neo-liberal hate-monger Zbigniew Brzezinski’s ‘Grand Chessboard’ anti-Russia strategies closely. This while Victoria Nuland reports to Chevron and Exxon-Mobil that 5 billion USA tax dollars have been invested to bring the elected Kiev government to point of coup d’état. This is little different to the overthrow of the Iran government by the CIA in 1953, on behalf of big oil. It does well to mention here, an insider sobriquet for CIA is “Corporate America.”

The question the American people need, or better said, deserve the opportunity to respond  to is; do you accept the National Security Act of 1947 handed the USA executive to corporate America, lock, stock & barrel, via their intelligence agency minions? Is this a legitimate exercise of the principles of American democracy? Directly stemming from this factual circumstance, does anyone believe it is a legitimate exercise of democracy when sleight-of-hand geopolitical engineering requires a mass deceit be perpetrated on the electorate; where the picture drawn for you via the institutions of State is not remotely similar to reality? That innocents can be murdered in such a way as to cast blame on another innocent party .. where the purpose of the vile act is to stir your indignation against a 3rd innocent party and justify in your mind further acts of hostility against those very innocents, even to war? Who, you might ask, would be so insane? The Nazis did similar despicable things, and NATO is on a nearly identical path as I write this. And they’re doing it with the trained, professional, criminal brilliance of Obama, Nuland, Psaki, Harf and Kirby; brought to you courtesy of the CIA:

23 April 2015 update on Ukraine’s Yanukovych government overthrow:

A Polish MEP [Member of European Parliament] states in  an interview the Maidan snipers were trained in Poland in a joint operation with USA intelligence services.

Question: “[you are] a supporter of the thesis it was a CIA operation?”

Answer: “Maidan was also our operation. The snipers were trained in Poland”

The original interview transcript in Polish language HERE

A reasonable English language summary of the interview by PRAVDA:

The earlier leaked phone call between the European Union’s Cathrine Ashton and the Estonian foreign minister, indicating it was people aligned with the new USA supported Ukrainian administration were behind the snipers who killed both protestors and police during confrontation in Kiev. (conversation begins about 2 minutes into this youtube posting)

John Kerry had claimed it was the ousted administration behind the snipers. A better explanation (backing up the leaked conversation) is found in rogue CIA officer Phillip Agee’s expose: ‘Terrorism and Civil Society
