    In Ukraine, protests resemble Medieval battle

    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — The towering fleece hats and elaborate beards of Ukraine's 16th-century Cossacks are favored by many of the demonstrators on Kiev's main square, who have camped out in anti-government protests for nearly two months.

    When events turned violent this week, demonstrators' weapons also had an antique aura and clashes resembled a Medieval assault.

    ARMED TO THE TEETH

    Protesters have armed themselves like Crusaders with plywood shields, often painted with a cross, against the stun grenades and rubber bullets from police lines. They broke up the pavement on nearby streets and squares, lobbing the chunks toward the police.

    They also hurled firebombs, firecrackers and fireworks at riot police officers, many of whom were injured when firebombs spilled burning fuel on their uniforms and helmets.

    Meanwhile, pro-opposition websites have alleged that the police are wrapping their stun grenades with nails and pieces of metal in order to inflict injuries.

    Many protesters are protecting their heads with helmets and even colanders. One man came in Medieval battle armor, and another fashioned himself a bow and arrow for the fight. One group of men made a massive catapult from boards to pelt firebombs a longer distance; when it was burned down in a police attack, they rebuilt it the next day.
    THE BARRICADES

    Protesters have attempted to keep the police at bay by building 10-foot-high (3-meter-high) barricades along all the entrances to Kiev's Independence Square. The barricades are piled high with everything from wooden poles to rubber tires.

    On Thursday night, as temperatures dropped to minus-15 C (5 F), demonstrators shoveled snow into burlap sacks and tossed them to the top of the heap. They splashed the barricades with water to make them freeze solid and be tricky for police to climb.

    On Wednesday, after police chased demonstrators away from one clash site, demonstrators set huge piles of tires alight, engulfing much of downtown Kiev in billowing black smoke.

    TAUNTING THE ENEMY

    Some protesters erected a mock tribunal with an effigy of President Viktor Yanukovych in a striped inmate's uniform, sitting in a cage with his arms and neck tied up to the metal bars. The opposition has invented a wide variety of chants mocking Yanukovych and his deputies.

    If these morons put half as much effort into improving their country as they did tossing bottles filled with accelerants at the kwaps, they'd be getting somewhere.

    Not as fun and would require more long-term effort, so I guess it's a no-go. Same applies to the WN "movement" here as well.

    As pro-government militias form in the eastern side of the country, will we see a country possibly cut in half?

    KIEV, Ukraine – A leader of the protesters in the Ukrainian capital says they are in full control of the city after the signing of a peace deal aimed at ending the nation's three-month political crisis. Media reports say that President Viktor Yanukovych has left the capital for his native eastern Ukraine after surrendering much of his powers and agreeing to early elections this fall.
    The changes came as part of Friday's Western-brokered deal intended to end violence that killed scores and left hundreds wounded. The claims of his departure could not be immediately confirmed, however. Andriy Parubiy, a leader of the protest camp on Independence Square, known as the Maidan, said Saturday that protesters are now in full control of the capital. Many of the protesters are continuing to demand Yanukovych's immediate ouster.

    Putin could crush this like a fly being swatted with a newspaper if he wanted to- but I don't think he'll pursue this route since it'd damage Russia's international prestige.

    Tymoshenko, aka the Ukraine's version of Hellary KKKlinton, was sent to the slammer for various capital white-collar crimes: bribery, embezzlement, money-laundering, taking kickbacks, etc. She'll get white-washed in the West as some paragon of political virtue who was sent to the bighouse by a Putin-loving puppet (whatever that guy's name is who was just kicked out as the leader of Ukraine).

    She looked good once upon a time- but time and political corruption has made her look pretty unappealing and flabby. Plus any politician who is pro-E.U. will simply turn his or her country into...

    "Welcome to Ukraine, the New Greece." :lol:

    And now the Russians that make up the East and South of Urkaine will magically start demanding AUTONOMY first and then take those regions right back to Moscow with them. The Great Slavs are NOT chumps to be played by ZOG quite this easily or cavalierly. Putin is Ex-KGB after all and he knows the 'destablization' drill by heart I am sure.

    Ukraine synagogue hit by firebombs

    No injuries but extensive damage after vandals hurl Molotov cocktails at prayer hall in Zaporizhia, southeast of Kiev

    [IMG]Illustrative photo of a synagogue in Kiev.

    A synagogue in eastern Ukraine sustained minor damage from firebombs hurled at it by unidentified individuals. The firebombs hit the Giymat Rosa Synagogue in Zaporizhia, located 250 miles southeast of Kiev, on the night of February 23, according to a report Monday on the news site timenews.in.ua. The website published photos that showed the traces of a fire on the facade of the balcony of the synagogue, which opened its doors in 2012. A spokesperson for the Zhovtneviy District where the synagogue is located said no one was hurt in the attack and that police were searching for suspects. Officers found the neck of a glass bottle which was used as a Molotov cocktail, according to the Central Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Several Ukrainian media reported erroneously that the attack happened in Kiev. The Ukrainian capital and other cities have seen the eruption of a wave of violent demonstrations that culminated this weekend with the apparent ousting of President Viktor Yanukovych. The country’s new acting government has issued a warrant for his arrest, accusing him of the murder of about 100 protesters who died in street clashes last week. The unrest began in November over Yanukovych’s refusal to sign a deal which would have tightened Ukraine’s ties with the European Union – a move which many saw as jeopardizing the country’s complicated relationship with Russia. Several Jewish communities in Kiev have beefed up their security arrangements during the unrest. Other communities put their activities on hold out of safety concerns. Ukraine has a Jewish population of 360,000 – 400,000 people, with roughly a quarter of all the country’s Jews residing in Kiev, according to the European Jewish Congress. The Jewish Agency put the figure at 200,000.

    Perhaps they are bombing themselves for some sort of sympathy among all the anarchy? What better way for Israel to send some mossad squads to intervene ;D.
