On May 2, 2014, pro-Russia protesters in Odessa were burned alive, as Ukrainian “Prime Minister” Arseniy Yatsenyuk promised:
“We will find all of them — if it takes one year, two years — and bring them to justice and try them in Ukrainian and international courts. The ground will burn under their feet,” said Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
Over 30 people died in fire in the Trade Unions House in Odessa, #Ukraine’s third largest city. The building was set ablaze by pro-Kiev radicals after they destroyed the tent camp of anti-government activists that stood in front of it. The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the tragedy in Odessa had been caused by “criminal irresponsibility of the Kiev authorities indulging insolent nationalist radicals, including the Right Sector, who are staging a campaign of physical terror against supporters of federalization and real constitutional changes in the Ukrainian society”

If you still think Putin is the problem here, you’re hopeless. Drop out of politics and take up stamp collecting.
The pro-Kiev Euro-Maidan Nazis (with a little help from their soccer hooligan friends) are now doing what Nazis do best: burning down a trade union building, barricading the exits so that people burn to death or leap from the windows to their deaths, and brutally beating the survivors.
Odessa – graphic video: People burnt alive, suffocated in Ukraine’s Right Sector assault:
If this had happened in Kiev during the Euro-Maidan riots, you’d really hear about it! Instead, the Western media and politicians are now trying to blame Russia for this disgusting act of violence against ordinary citizens.
Updated: The Odessa Massacre:
As Victory Day in Russia approaches, people in America and Europe have a choice to make:
a) We can abandon our pointless and aggressive policies regarding Russia, and honor the cooperation between the USA and Russia during World War II in the fight against fascism by supporting and encouraging Russia (as an ally and equal partner) to act as a mediator and peacekeeper in Ukraine before it escalates into a bloody civil war.
b) The very least the US and NATO can do is butt out of Russia’s business and refuse to start a world war or even a nuclear confrontation with Russia over Ukraine.
Kiev was the victim of a fascist coup and the proof can now be seen in Odessa, as the pathetic, unelected government in Kiev cannot gather any mass support, so they now must resort to Nazi Right Sector support in their war on eastern Ukrainians – who do not want bad relations with Russia, do not want IMF conditionalities and brutal austerity, and absolutely refuse to accept the Kiev fascist clique as a legitimate government.
Crimean leaders blame Kiev for selling Ukraine off for IMF loans, from The Voice of Russia:
…the country’s entire gas pipeline system will be handed over for free in the American company Chevron’s ownership the moment the basic agreement is signed, while the owners of the Mariupol, Zaporizhzhya and Dnipropetrovsk steel mills will be obliged to surrender their 50% stakes to Germany’s Ruhr.
The Donbass coal industry will be handed over to Ruhr’s subsidiary in Finland…
Kyiv has pledged to make territory available near Kharkiv to host US missile defense systems and a wing of American fighter jets to provide cover for the missile defense installations…
Ukraine’s interim prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has assured the West that Kiev will fulfill all of the IMF’s terms in order to secure a loan, Kovitidi said.
Gas prices for municipal companies will have to be increased by 50% and for private will double.
Electricity tariffs will be raised by 40%, housing utility tariffs will be raised, too, gasoline excises will go up 60% and transportation tariffs 50%, while state support for childbirth will be cancelled, the free distribution of textbooks will be annulled at schools and the VAT relief will be scrapped in rural regions…
VAT will be introduced on medications, which will push up prices and bring citizens’ living standards down,” Kovitidi said.
“The planned annulment of the moratorium on the sale of farmland looks appalling. The selloff of Ukraine’s black soil zone, including to foreign countries, may have disastrous economic and social consequences,” she said.
Neo-Nazis in Ukraine:
It’s time to demand our leaders, especially President Obama, denounce the Kiev fascist clique and butt out of Russia’s business! Do the American people really want to stand beside open, admitted Nazis as they burn peaceful protesters alive?
Do atrocities only matter when they happen to America or our friends? Maybe you should take the time to read Vladimir Putin’s excellent New York Times op-ed if you already haven’t:
Ukrainian coup – some things you may have missed:
The Crimea referendum – why you probably shouldn’t care:
