Ukraine on Fire: The Push for Autonomy in East Ukraine >>

EPISODE #41

AIRED: 03-08-2014

Confused about Ukraine? Is Putin really the bad guy out to invade Ukraine, like CNN says? Are the Ukrainian people really happy about the Washington-backed coup in Kiev? Today three Ukrainian activists from Crimea and Kharkiv throw propaganda out the window– In this incredible interview, they give an honest, incisive account of breaking events in eastern Ukraine that illuminates the depths of hypocrisy in Washington, and the popular backlash against Washington’s support for ultra-nationalists pushing EU & IMF reforms in Kiev.

Schedrivy, Konstantyn Scheglikov, Eva Bolton and Evgeniy tell a very different story of mass arrests in Donetsk this week by Blackwater mercenaries hired by Kiev, and how local police are refusing orders from Kiev to attack demonstrators. They tell of blacklisted journalists, like Vladimir Rogov, who end up murdered or kidnapped by right-wing Svoboda nationalists. They tell of US financial stipends and special training for demonstrators loyal to European masters. They show the irony of how these professionally trained protesters in Kiev have been totally caught by surprise by the spontaneous activism flaring in the East. It’s a story of snipers hired by west and false-flag operations to inflame the Western media. Above all, this is a story of true grit in Eastern Ukraine, and a passionate commitment to protect their own cultural heritage that puts the West to shame. This is the story of a tenacious rebellion from inside the trenches of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine.
