1:34 am
always tense and eventually it led to tragedy. one person died and over fifty people were wounded in clashes during a pro russian march protesting the new government in kiev. on april sixth the crimean scenario began repeating eastern ukraine where protesters seized government buildings. and the next day people seven day proclaimed don't yet see people's republic kiev replied by announcing the beginning of an anti-terrorist operation in eastern ukraine. by that time the international media was screaming about a russian invasion in ukraine russia could now be on the verge of invading ukraine but strong words state only in the media the ukrainian authorities never announced a war like situation why i.m.f. cannot give money to countries engaged in ongoing war that's roboto shango.

1:36 am
well. delia you know. the world seemed too busy welcoming this new democracy in kiev. to notice what was being done as it spread its wings over the country. many in southern ukraine had been viewing the revolution with concern. and an anti mind on movement formed in the city of odessa in early january two thousand and fourteen the protesters set up their camp in front of the trade union house a building which would soon become a monument to a massacre of its own it's difficult to overestimate the importance of odessa it is strategically located on the black sea and it's ukraine's largest seaport it's not
1:37 am
surprising that ukraine's new authorities were watching the situation unfolding there with growing alarm. more and more of odessa as people were joining the anti my don movement at the same time as events in eastern ukraine were heating up. the new ukrainian government didn't have the power to wage war on too many fronts if odessa were to join the growing uprising in the eastern regions it would seriously complicate the situation. this rebellion had to be extinguished immediately and at any cost and that cost was high. on may second two thousand and fourteen soccer fans flocked to the center of odessa city for the ukrainian championship match surprisingly a great number of these fans who descended into odessa just the night before also turned out to be fighters from the my don self-defense units along with members of radical organizations from all parts of ukraine. that these. books.
1:38 am
these families asked armed and shouting nationalist mottos began disturbances in the center of the city as they marched to the tent and camp where they attacked. the end time mind on protestors sought shelter in the trade union house but it was a track. on supporters started throwing molotov cocktails into the building until it was engulfed in flames. people burned to death inside for trying to escape. fire station was less than a mile away it took almost half an hour for firefighters to arrive when they finally did the damage had been done. but here's an intriguing fact just a few days before those dreadful events a messenger from my don. made a visit to odessa it's an interesting coincidence that some of the people he met
1:39 am
with in odessa were seen at the scene that fateful day. but not everyone was mourning on the popular political talk show schuster live the news about the people burned alive in odessa was welcomed with a long round of applause this is where you should. see just put it. on its facebook page the right sector announced the events of may second a proud moment in national history an official investigation into this sad event has been going on now for nearly two years and it's yet to reach a conclusion but it seems the experts and all the information they needed from the very beginning which i. really cute you.
1:40 am
it looks like odessa really is a very important piece of real estate as it was on earth with a very special new governor appointed on may thirtieth of two thousand and fifteen . really old friend of the united states and born and raised in ukraine's neighboring country georgia down there in georgia a quick look at his biography gives one an understanding that he's been groomed for a special mission. mr saakashvili received a u.s. state department scholarship and he worked for a new york law firm which represented the organization commodity a group that appeared earlier when we learned about the color revolutions and we're dealing with a democratic bloodless revolution this is the revolution of roses and this is me kyle saakashvili with camara busy overthrowing the legitimately elected president
1:41 am
eduard shevardnadze. was. soon after the rose revolution blossom fully george announced its intentions to join nato and plant fresh nato military bases in the fertile soil right on russia's border never ever will give our freedom and independence never never will give any piece of our territory saakashvili is mission was accomplished at least with his friends and nato the georgian populace wasn't quite as happy though in two thousand and seven they took to the streets to voice discontent and mr saakashvili responded with force. the people's discontent. saakashvili party lost parliamentary elections and the opposition took control he sat this means that the parliamentary majority and new government. and me as the
1:42 am
president according to our constitution mikhail decided not to wait for the results of the president's election and fled the country in october two thousand and thirteen. and the age of trump winning is all that matters the phrase by any means necessary has truly been weaponized now politics has little to do with policy front and center of perceived cultural grievances and resentments just ask red cow for. medical use downs to luke's gospel only god could heal.
1:43 am
and when you. look at the distance was most of the book but. still it's about seeing. those. just for the.
1:44 am
in two thousand and fourteen saakashvili refused summons to appear in court as a witness in several criminal cases later that same year he was accused of misuse of power and embezzle. saakashvili wound up in the us and soon his friends in washington found him a new assignment. mikail actively supported my down and very soon was rewarded with a high position in the new ukrainian government first as the president's counselor and then as the governor of odessa the day before taking this position he renounced his citizenship to georgia the country of the birth and became a ukrainian citizen. then the suggest others gordon could have done in the way explored that road in cecil. gordon could have done in the way explored that road. as they say the battle is worth the blood both literally and figuratively.
1:45 am
crassness now do i not somebody affordable by the us our reading your paper to question is now the last thought on my on no cranium as someone dear to chester but i looked. up to date on the my seal of geoffrey pyatt the u.s. ambassador to ukraine paid a visit to saakashvili just a month after he took office in odessa it is law and the old last administration is delivering results. you're going to see a steady flow of embassy in washington visitors coming here the meeting was fruitful and geoffrey generous. no matter how well saakashvili is job goes it looks like he shouldn't be worried about his own finances on his facebook page he posted an official document showing that the new governor of odessa gets a pretty penny from washington almost two hundred thousand dollars a year for comparison the governor of maine gets seventy thousand dollars
1:46 am
a year so if odessa became a new u.s. state it would be at the top of the list mr saakashvili should feel right at home in his newly adopted country he is best of friends with fellow color revolutionary leader viktor yuschenko who is the godfather of his son. and then other mothers called us in the present. at the post below walk us kind of being it's just sad to see them leave. even though there's a double. when you're still there but they still do stretches if they did it with you but i'd have to stand on the issue of this void a business dinner and she would get enough of this on. justin you and your buddy others are the butt of c.n.n. and the special before bonus does they were able to contain such.
1:47 am
a war once launched doesn't choose its victims we are just learning at this hour that malaysian airlines has now confirmed that it has lost contact with one of its planes plane was indeed shot down by a missile while flying at a high altitude over eastern ukraine near the russian border two hundred ninety eight revised number of souls on board all feared dead it was a murder it was a crime there's been this odd nonchalance about pursuing the answers there was a record a very limited report put out a few months after the event but since then they said the next report will be on the first anniversary of the event but you do with a criminal investigation before becomes a cold case so there's been this curious element of why is there not greater pressure from both the media and the the western governments to answer these questions but even without any answers the fingers were pointed immediately that's
1:48 am
not an accident that is happening because a russian support evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a surface to air missile that was launched from an area that is controlled by russian backed separatists inside of ukraine if you lose a little bit so just to put up a national show that is test it's a question of taking. the malaysian boeing wasn't the first plane to play a significant part in american russian relationships on september first one nine hundred eighty three korean airlines flight double zero seven from new york to seoul via anchorage was shot down by a soviet interceptor aircraft over the territory of the u.s.s.r. in the sea of japan there was absolutely no justified. haitian legal or moral for what the soviets did the tragedy of the korean bowing was considered a perfect occasion to demonstrate the nato military power within dangerous proximity to the soviets on november second one thousand nine hundred eighty three
1:49 am
nato launched able archer attend a command post exercise simulating a conflict escalation culminating in a nuclear attack it was followed by placing pershing two nuclear missiles in europe . what reagan didn't take into consideration was the paranoid overreaction of the soviets. a recently declassified us intelligence report shows that for the first time since the cuban missile crisis the world was close to nuclear war. just like in one nine hundred eighty three the malaysian boeing crash was leveraged against the enemy. a new wave of sanctions hit russia mediately after the tragedy. the united states is imposing new sanctions in key sectors of the russian economy almost a year and three months later the dutch safety board published a report this is jeff toobin flats m h seventy crashed because.
1:50 am
three well for. the today it is our side of the arrow playing the best the left side of the car fits the report didn't blame any specific group or person and estimated a very wide area of three hundred twenty kilometers as a zone from which the missiles fired at the same time the russian producer of missiles day conducted its own independent investigation isn't that they speeded me up the fullest. lou with adele and. be nice to them during the experiment they blew up a retired airliner with a missile and came to the conclusion that the malaysian plane was brought down by the older to. type of missiles not used by russia anymore but still in the possession of ukraine the company claims that the missile was launched from the territory controlled by the ukrainian military. one would expect that
1:51 am
these controversial results would again stir up public interest in the investigation but the tragedy of malaysian flight m h seventeen at already played its role in the big geo political game therefore it was soon forgotten the goal was achieved after the third wave of sanctions hit russia the tensions between the two countries.
