WAR Against the People, in Downtown Kyiv Today: Feb. 20 – Afternoon 16:00 to 17:00



Feb. 20: last night’s truce was broken on Maidan in the center of Kyiv. It is still unclear who fired the first live shots which came from the direction of the Conservatory building behind police lines. Molotov cocktails and grenades were also being thrown by police at the Conservatory. The directions of the shots point to a provocation by government forces as it would be extremely difficult for protesters to take firing positions from that direction. Since then Berkut snipers have been firing at protesters. Reports of deaths vary between 50 and 100 people, SIXTY confirmed as of 4:30 pm.
