This medieval contraption had been busy shooting since its construction on January 20th until it was ruined by the Berkut police in the night of January 21st.

The Catapult had its own twitter channel, https://twitter.com/ukr_catapult, posting twits such as: “I threw a Molotov cocktail towards the Berkut! Inexpressible experience!”; “I am loaded with stones and cobblestones, but I don’t see where they are flying. I hope that I hit the target a couple times”; “Somebody brought lasers, I see the target! Target established, fire!” “Everything thunders and clatters here, it’s very loud, but that’s nothing to me, because I’m the main catapult in Ukraine”.

15 hours after its destruction, the catapult posted again, saying that it had been dissassembled for the barricades, but that we would wage war yet again.
