My article on #Maidan massacre in #Ukraine, its cover-up and stonewalled investigation, and its misrepresentation by @nytimes and US architectural company 3D model. #UkraineElection #UkraineElections2019 consortiumnews.com/2019/04/22/the…
Maidan massacre was a watershed event, not only for politics and history of #Ukraine but also for world #Politics generally. This mass killing in downtown Kyiv set the stage for violent overthrow of the pro-#Russian government in Ukraine and a new Cold War between US and #Russia.
Therefore, it is remarkable that five years after this massacre shook the world, no one has been sentenced for any of the Maidan killings. This was the best documented case of mass killing in history, broadcast live on TV & the internet, in presence of thousands of eyewitnesses.

I recently posted how #Poroshenko’s 2014 win required untenable coalition of pro-Maidan liberals+ conservatives who thought he’d cut pragmatic businessman deal with Russia. Inevitable some would be disappointed. #Zelensky’s electoral coalition even worse. #UkraineElection. THREAD
I mentioned acquaintance who helped establish Poroshenko Bloc office in #Luhansk Oblast in 2014, got elected to Lisichansk city council. Got disenchanted with prez for not confronting entrenched regional elites to see through #Maidan policies. Now firm Zelensky supporter.
Yesterday spoke with different neighbor, also voted for Zelensky after voting #Boiko first round. Born in Russia, 50 yrs working in #Donbas factory, classic Opposition Bloc voter. Frustrated about industrial decline. Politics border with separatist sympathizing.
