The U.S.-engendered ‘Color Revolutions’ seek always to provoke violent responses from the authorities being targeted.
This is a process of state-sanctioned criminality by the U.S. state through the institutionalized criminality entity of the @CIA.
The @CIA ensures the "protestors" are aware that they will receive positive coverage in the West, from politicians & from western mass media.
The picture drawn will omit less palatable features such as the young policemen on Maidan who were killed.
On Kiev’s Maidan the 'peaceful protestors’ used hand guns, shotguns & hunting rifles. Molotov cocktails were used & often.
Metal bars, heavy chains, a variety of clubs, toxic sprays, bricks & whatever else the inventive @CIA could conjure for them.
