Shooting during the Euromaidan in Kyiv was organised by former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili with the help of the US secret services and ‘Georgian snipers’

Summary of Disinformation

Alexander Revazishvili and Koba Nergadze went to Maidan on the orders of Mamuka Mamulashvili, former military adviser to Saakashvili […] They themselves were connected with Georgian special services controlled by Saakashvili. They were neutralizing the opposition.

It was necessary to create a stir. People should not stop. It did not matter whether to shoot a tree or barricades or those who threw Molotov cocktails. It was necessary to create chaos, so that the people would come out against the “Berkout”. “On February 10, 2014 the group was on the third floor of the ‘Ukraine Hotel’. Mikheil Saakashvili, Mamuka Mamulashvili, Andrey Parubiy, Sergey Pashinsky and a man in camouflage uniform. Saakashvili introduced him as a former US serviceman named Christopher Bryan. He had served in the US Army as a sniper.



There was no coup in Ukraine four years ago. The demonstrations which began in Kyiv in November 2013 – called "Maidan", or "Euromaidan" – were not provoked from outside but were a result of the Ukrainian people's frustration with former President Yanukovych's last minute U-turn when, after seven years of negotiation, he refused to sign the EU–Ukraine Association Agreement and halted progress towards Ukraine's closer relationship with the EU as a result of Russian pressure. The protesters' demands included constitutional reform, a stronger role for parliament, formation of a government of national unity, an end to corruption, early presidential elections and an end to violence http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT.
