Live: The trial in #Ukraine convicts in absentia #Yanukovych to 13 year sentence for treason and crime against peace. The court decision was expected since the judicial system in Ukraine is not independent but is under control of the Poroshenko government.
Court decision ignored #Maidan massacre even though it was mentioned in charges against him. Court refused to allow video testimonies by first president of #Ukraine about "Ceaușescu plan" to assassinate Yanukovych during Maidan & by ex-Right Sector sponsor about Maidan snipers.
I found out that large parts from unauthorized translation of my Snipers' Massacre on the Maidan in #Ukraine paper, which was presented at 2015 Annual Meeting of the American Political Science Association, were read at the #Yanukovych trial (11:55-37:45).
#FakeNews: Peoples Front propaganda outlet wrote that I am scholar from Poltava in #Ukraine & not from Ottawa in Canada & that my Maidan massacre study was written for Yanukovych trial & not for 2015 Annual Meeting of American Political Science Association bit.ly/2FKPCcN
In contrast to other trial sessions, Ukrainian TV channels did not broadcast trial session in which my Maidan massacre paper was read. These are examples of censorship & fake news concerning me & my Maidan massacre paper since they cannot challenge evidence presented in my study.
Western #media continue to misrepresent #Maidan massacre: "Yanukovych fled Ukraine in 2014 as tensions in Kyiv flared up following a deadly police crackdown on protesters calling for the president to follow through with an association agreement..." latimes.com/world/la-fg-uk…
My APSA Maidan massacre paper, which was read in unauthorized translation at #Yanukovych #trial, is censored or misrepresented by the #media in Ukraine and is not reported by the mainstream media in the West for political reasons with a few exceptions. academia.edu/8776021/The_Sn…
And @nytimes again reports #FakeNews about Maidan massacre: "The former president is a widely reviled figure in Ukraine for his over-the-top corruption ... and because the police shot dozens of antigovernment demonstrators during an uprising in 2014" nytimes.com/2019/01/24/wor…
