    Maybe you should watch the BBC or Channel 4 News yourself instead of Russia Yesterday and boiling potatoes.

    The reports by the telegraph and Die Zeit which were quoted by Channel 4 should have been enought for everyone who understand the concept of the phrase "report based on".

    I am not answereable to someone who lives in an undemocratic dictatorship that is aggressive and threatening towards the rest of the world.

    And certainly not if that individual is supportive of the dictatorship he lives in.

    Why is it that you are on this forum anyway? Is there no Russian language forum and echochamber for the likeminded where you can waste your time? No matter how much you post, you will not convince anyone that Russia is in the right here in any possible way!

    Chechnya, was not an independant state. It declared indpendance, and Russia used force to prevent it. Causing extensive damage in Grozny. If I am not mistaken (going by memory over 68 000 chechyens killed, 200 000 displaced (out of a population of around 1 million) during the first chechyen war I believe. (might have been second)

    Stalin forcibly exiled nearly the entire population to siberia during the 30's or 40s

    If I am not mistaken both Police and protestors were killed, by snipers, I doubt there were two different groups of snipers one shooting police and one shooting protestors.

    Leaving the question which side were the snipers on?

    The shooting of both protestors and the cops, indicates a desire to cause a violent reaction from at least one side, which did happen when the protestors stormed the police lines, after which the government fell.

    The reports by the telegraph and Die Zeit which were quoted by Channel 4 should have been enough for everyone who understand the concept of the phrase "report based on".

    I asked you to provide the "BBC/Channel 4 research" as you claimed to have heard/seen one, so far no links to any "research"...

    ...if you would have referred to the Telegraph report and not to some "research done by the BBC/Channel 4" form the beginning I wouldn't have asked you for a thing at all.

    Btw. Nice backpedaling from "BBC/Channel 4 research which concluded something" to "the Telegraph report was quoted by Channel 4".
    Btw 2. I prefer Sky News, especially Katie Stallard, she had some nice reports from Ukraine in the past few weeks.

    It's not an invasion no matter how many times you say so, Russia has legitimate cause to be in there, and the US should know all about trumped up claims. Why would they fear Russia if they told what they know about the snipers. That supports Russia's position.

    Yeah, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. The one piece of evidence has been retracted.

    If you want a violent reaction from the protestors you shoot the protestors, if you want a more violent crackdown you shoot police. Seems like friendly fire rather than something intended, since it won't logically lead to an intended outcome if you shoot both.

    Since the "evidence" (how would the doctor know who the snipers were? Wearing anti gov insignia's? An EU crest?) of anti-government forces being responsible has been retracted, the claim belongs in CT.

    Or if you just want a violent reaction, as a catalyst for something violent to start you shoot both

    If the police start shooting the government looks bad, and loses legitimacy, if the protestors storm the barricades, and the police do nothing the government at least in this case falls, and the protestors win

    The government did not need to use snipers, as if it wanted to stop the protests. A large division of riot police with tear gas, batons, dogs etc would have been a far more effective use of force. Then in the confusion shoot the visible leaders of the protestors. The moderates would have fled, the younger men who were part of the Right Sector or Svoboda would have stayed and been ideal groups to arrest during the riots

    What are the ends of starting something generally violent? If one suspects false flag, one group or the other is targeted not both.

    Quite right. Some may remember that during the Cold War the Russians shot down a Korean Airliner and immediately blamed the Americans, which many leftists also believed. Shortly thereafter the Americans released a recording of the pilot who shot the the airliner talking to the tower who had issued the order to shoot down KAL 007.

    If the technology was there in the 1980's there is little doubt that these calls could be intercepted today.
