German TV investigation strongly casts doubt on the West's claim that Viktor Yanukovich was responsible for the killing of dozens of Ukrainian protestors, making this former US President Obama's WMD moment. Ukraine was a classic CIA coup from the very start. One that brought a fascist government with pro-Nazi troops to power and enabled the United States to implement Zbigniew Brzezinki's Grand Chessboard strategy against Russia.
This little seen by western audiences German TV investigative report from September 2014 with eyewitness reports reveals that snipers were firing from "behind" protesters from the Hotel Ukraine which was occupied by the infamous pro-Nazi Right Sector at the time of the Maidan Massacre on February 20th, 2014. The German TV report also features captured sound bytes from an amateur radio user who was monitoring and recording police channels proving that the Berkut police force were discussing opposition snipers on rooftops and in windows firing from the other side of the protesters. This German TV report matches the statements and reporting of BBC reporter Gabriel Gatehouse who filmed and described the location of snipers shooting at his BBC news crew on February 20th, 2014.
Link to full report on Gabriel Gatehouse's BBC reports, which includes 2 BBC videos that prove that snipers were firing on protesters from the Hotel Ukraine which was occupied by the Right Sector at the time of the shootings. A third BBC video at the link also proves that the coup imposed Kiev authorities and the British government ignored the reports of snipers in the Hotel Ukraine in their official investigation into the Maidan snipers. The new government has since removed the trees proving the direction of fire around the location where the majority of protesters were killed.
The BBC’s Ukraine Anomalies – Maidan’s Hotel Ukraine Snipers and the Confusing Reporting of Gabriel Gatehouse - https://clarityofsignal.com/2017/06/13/the-bbcs-ukraine-anomalies-maidans-hotel-ukraine-snipers-and-the-confusing-reporting-of-gabriel-gatehouse/
At the time of the Maidan Massacre on February 20, 2014, the Hotel Ukraine was occupied and controlled by opposition forces including the Right Sector neo-nazi groups led by Andriy Parubiy that were the frontline foot soldiers being used as a battering ram against the Yankovich led government.
In the following video filmed on February 20th, 2014, we see Gabriel Gatehouse and his BBC team clearly shot at from the Hotel Ukraine at the 2:35 mark. The BBC report verifies snipers were in the Hotel Ukraine behind protesters. Gatehouse even goes so far as to identify the room the shooters are located in, stating ” from one of the upper windows of the hotel a shot rang out…….up there, yes….our hotel…..upper window 5th row from the left…2nd from the top….the one that is open”. He then states ” I saw the shooter, he was wearing one of the protester’s green helmets”.
In this 2nd video at the 3:50 mark we see Gabriel Gatehouse in the unedited version of the same video cursing about the rifle shot which just barely misses him. Before being shot at he states clearly “What is that, that window facing directly to us……fuck….let’s get the fuck out of here!”
Now here is where things get interesting. In the following BBC video, filmed 4 days later, and featuring the very same Gabriel Gatehouse, he accepts the version of events of a team of anonymous undercover British forensic experts who neglect to include the sniper that shot at him and his BBC crew from the Hotel Ukraine. He makes no mention of this fact, nor does he correct their reporting, and instead, simply accepts their stated version of events that the snipers were in other locations and government positions which has been deduced by the anonymous team based on bullet scars on surrounding objects.
At the 1:58 mark above, Gatehouse states “It’s amazing how you can work that all out”. The anonymous forensic expert then states “It was just a bloodbath really……wasn’t it?” To which Gatehouse quizzically nods and says “Yes it was”.
At the 2:26 mark, while standing in front of a barricade, Gatehouse then states “The investigator’s say that there were at least 4 sniper positions…..one at ground level, here at this barricade, and then another 3 in the tall buildings behind it over there (points at government side) they were shooting directly down this road in the direction of the hotel where we were staying (camera then pans towards the Hotel Ukraine) and the square beyond”. Gatehouse makes no mention whatsoever of the sniper that shot at his crew in the previous BBC videos taken on February 20th, 2014. The rest of the video features interviews with members of the groups who took over the city and a short BBC expose’ on Victoria Yankovich’s estate.

Imperial Geopolitics: Ukraine, Georgia and the New Cold War between NATO and Russia

Zbigniew Brzezinski’s book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand current and future U.S., EU and NATO policy. Over ten years ago the former National Security Advisor gave a graphic description of the imperatives of imperial geopolitics. He argued that the U.S.A.’s position of supremacy should be preserved under all circumstances. To this end NATO, acting as a “bridgehead” of the U.S.A., should expand into Eurasia and take control of geostrategically important regions so as to prevent Russia’s resurgence as a powerful political force.
Brzezinski had in mind two countries or regions in particular: “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire. Russia without Ukraine can still strive for imperial status, but it would then become a predominantly Asian imperial state, more likely to be drawn into debilitating conflicts with aroused Central Asians, who would then be supported by their fellow Islamic states to the south.” “However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.”1 Brzezinski argued further that there was an imperative need to gain control of the southern Caucasus, i.e. Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, on Russia’s southern flank. The past master of U.S. geopolitics set out the aim and purpose of NATO policy with impressive clarity: “The United States and the NATO countries – while sparing Russia’s self-esteem to the extent possible, but nevertheless firmly and consistently – are destroying the geopolitical foundations which could, at least in theory, allow Russia to hope to acquire the status as the number two power in world politics that belonged to the Soviet Union.
In the years that followed, these words were systematically put into political practice with NATO taking its eastward expansion right up to Moscow’s borders. Furthermore, active Western support for the “colourful revolutions” in Georgia (2003) and Ukraine (2004) led to the sitting pro-Russian or neutral governments and presidents being ousted by pro-Western candidates.3 Russia regarded NATO’s policy as crossing the “red line”. As the war between Russia and Georgia in the summer of 2008 showed, Russia is no longer prepared to stand idly by in the face of further attempts at expansion. Nevertheless, the Western military alliance is doggedly pursuing its escalation policy, in which Ukraine and Georgia are now being offered NATO membership as a means of safeguarding the “successes” that have been scored. U.S. President Barack Obama is also in favour of these two countries joining NATO.4 The announcement that Michael McFaul, a hardliner on policy towards Moscow, is to be appointed senior director for Russian affairs at the National Security Council gives little cause for hope that Washington under its new president will abandon its aggressive, anti-Russian policy. This amounts to tacit acceptance that the New Cold War between NATO and Russia, invoked so frequently of late, will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
